The Church does not teach a great deal about the end days other than to note there will be an end to this world at the Last Judgment when Christ will come again the judge the whole world. What the Church does emphasize that when a person dies, that is the end of the world for them. That is what individuals should concern themselves with. When people start trying to figure out whether the end of the world is coming soon, they get all disturbed and start talking and looking about and distract themselves from what is in their control; namely, their own lives. No matter what is coming, they can go to church, say their prayers whether the world will end in a week or in a million years. Only Christ knows when the world will end and he has told us. If that knowledge were essential for our salvation, he would have told us. So relax and just keep saying your prayers.
