The Last Pope?

   The St. Malachy prophecy was the most frightening prophecy ever recorded on the fate of the Catholic Church and its papacy. In 1143 AD an Irish archbishop named Malachy O'Morgan recorded the Prophecy of the Popes, listing 112 popes who would occupy the papacy from the papacy of Celestine II until the last papacy of "Petrus Romanus," who would witness the destruction of Rome. Saint Malachy described each pope on his list using brief Latin phrases noting some significant fact pertaining to that pope's identity, and according to prophecy fans the pope who currently occupies the Vatican is the last pope on Malachy's list.

   On February 28, 2013, when Pope Benedict XVI unexpectedly announced his resignation from the papacy, the cross on the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica was struck twice by lightning, and the Internet was quickly ablaze with rumors about the impending election of "Petrus Romanus," the last pope on Malachy's list. Then, after 13 more days passed without a sitting pope, it was on the 13th day of March, in the 13th year of the new Millenium, at exactly eight hours and 13 minutes in the evening, when our new pope, Francis I, the two hundred and 66th pope, was finally announced on the balcony of Saint Peter's Basilica on a cold and rainy night.

   The election of Malachy's last pope, "Petrus Romanus" or "Peter the Roman," caught prophecy followers by surprise when pope "Peter," turned out instead to be pope "Pedro," the first LATIN AMERICAN pope elected to the papacy. And please note that this website posted its greeting to "papa Pedro," over a month BEFORE his election to the papacy. When "Petrus Romanus" is translated into modern Italian, it produces "Pietro de Romano," and Pope Francis I immediately decided to name himself after St. Francis "de Pietro" of Assisi. It was also later revealed that the family of Pope Francis originally came from the small town of "Romano" in northern Italy.

   The St. Malachy prophecy has caused quite a stir within the Catholic Church and many Church officials have issued opinions concerning the accuracy of the prophecy. When Pope Benedict saw a photo of the bolt of lightning striking the cross on the top of Saint Peter's Basilica, he asked his secretary if it was a real photo, or a digital creation. Archbishop Ganswein, Prefect of the Papal Household, and also personal secretary to Pope Benedict XVI, stated he thought Malachy's prophecy may be true, and might represent a "wake up call" for the Church. Our present pope, Francis I, is aware of the Malachy prophecy, but is not particularly concerned about it. The Catholic Church seems to be totally ignoring this warning about its future, in spite of the fact that the prophecy came out of the Church itself!

   The Catholic Church still supports the validity of the Malachy prophecy, but doesn't support its reference to Pope Francis I. The St. Malachy prophecy however, is supported by other prophetic sources such as the Prophecy of Fatima and Nostradamus Quatrain #10-65 which also seem to describe a future destruction of Rome. The 3rd Fatima Secret describes the execution of a future pope by soldiers who have invaded the Vatican, and Nostradamus Quatrain #10-65 states that the Pope will offend the enemies of Rome (Muslims) and be attacked by Islamic soldiers who will invade the holy city. The Muslims (Ottomans) were defeated in 1571 at the Battle of Lepanto and have not been serious threat for many years, but recent U.S. efforts to unseat Middle East dictators produced a political void that has resulted in a resurrection of the Ottoman empire which can now resume its war on Christianity.

   It is incredible that the United States government would be the driving force behind the resurrection of the Ottomans, but the army of Islam is now once again rising in the Middle East.

     "During a final persecution of the Roman Church, sits Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock through many tribulations. This accomplished, the seven-hilled city (Rome) will be destroyed, and the Dreadful Judge will judge His people."
