The Fathers and Doctors of the Church interpret the words of Daniel chapter 12 to mean that the Antichrist will abolish and prohibit the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of Mass for 1,290 days (i.e. 3 1/2 years).
Francisco Suarez (revered scholastic of the 16th-17th century) suggests that after the death of the Antichrist, the world will remain for an additional forty-five days – apparently allowing for a brief vindication and revival of the Catholic Church. He bases this on the following passage in Daniel 12:
11 And from the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination unto desolation shall be set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred ninety days.
12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh unto a thousand three hundred thirty-five days.
Suarez notes that the Antichrist reigns in terror for 1,290 days, but that the prophet also adds that the blessed will endure until the 1,335th day of this time – that is, for an additional forty-five days after the the time of trial.
