Amazing parallels to help us understand the past and present…

Church History Prefigured by the Old Testament in Chronological Order: Book Divine Poetry Now Available

Three months ago we introduced our readers to the work of Dominic Caggeso of the Maccabean Uprising web site, who has engaged in tremendous research demonstrating that the history of the Roman Catholic Church bears striking resemblance to the history of the people of the Old Covenant, and in the very same chronological order.

These parallels between the histories of the Old and New Covenants — much too numerous and striking to dismiss — Caggeso aptly calls God’s ‘poetry’, as it turns out that salvation history does indeed ‘rhyme’. For the Catholic Family Podcast, the author gave an exciting presentation summarizing his incredible findings last December:

Today we are happy to announce that all this information has now been published in a single book entitled Divine Poetry. It is available in hardcover, in paperback, and in an electronic Kindle format. This is the book description released by the publisher:

Popes, saints, apparitions, battles, councils, heresies and more are prefigured in the Old Testament in chronological order with astonishing beauty! God has written a 2,000 year long poem with our history as His pen and paper.

382 pages, 6 in x 9 in, with appendix, bibliography, index, TOC [table of contents], preface and a foreword written by Fr. Stephen McKenna.

The book can be ordered directly from the publisher (Dominic will throw in a free timeline brochure!) as well as from Amazon (without free brochure). Customers outside the continental United States are requested to go through Amazon.

Please note: Novus Ordo Watch does not receive any commissions, kickbacks, or other perks in return for promoting this book.

At THIS LINK the interested reader will also find sample pages from Divine Poetry, including a substantial part of the table of contents.

In a new interview published today by Catholic Family Podcast, the author speaks about the release of his book with host Kevin Davis:

As noted on Maccabean Uprising:

The Omnipotence of God is infinite! In a small demonstration of His power, it seems that He has caused the entire history of the Catholic Church to be prefigured by the entire history of Israel in the Old Testament. He has been doing this since the very beginning, and in the same chronological order!

This act of God is Divine Poetry, using our history as His pen and paper. The Maccabean Uprising project seeks to demonstrate this Divine phenomena, through our poor online efforts.


Seeing God work in such marvelous fashion is very beautiful and helps to reassure anxious souls that even in our crazy and complex times, God has not abandoned His Church but providentially guides everything He allows to take place, which He has foreknown from all eternity.

Whenever we are puzzled or discouraged by events, let us never fail to recall His sacred Words: “…behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world” (Mt 28:20); “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Lk 21:33).
