Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday morning that he would be stepping down as the head of the Catholic Church, making him the first Pope to step down rather than die in the position in more than 600 years. A new pope will be selected by the end of March. There will undoubtedly be much speculation about who will take over the reigns of the Catholic Church, but one thing that we can look to for some guidance about who might be the the next pope are the infamous papal prophecies of St. Malachy. St. Malachy, the first Irish saint, had a vision of the next 112 popes. We’ve had 111 since, and are on the verge of seeing No. 112, which Malachy says will be the final pope before the end of the world as we know it.
St. Malachy had written about the 112th pope:
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”
St. Malachy prophesized that the final pope would be “Peter the Roman”, which is interesting because no pope to date has chosen the name of Peter out of respect for Peter the Apostle. There has also been speculation that the final pope would be black. Even more curiously, there is a black cardinal in Ghana, Peter Turkson, who is believed to be a frontrunner and whose name has come up in previous discussions of papal appointment.
Malachy’s prophecies are taken very seriously as they’ve been uncannily accurate to date. Will the Catholic Church get its first black pope? Will “Peter the Roman” lead us into the End Times? These questions are set to be answered by Easter, which comes this year at the end of March, when the papal conclave announces their decision.
Prophecy Of The Last Pope Is Upon Us: Have We Come Upon The End Of Days?
Have we come upon ‘the End of Days’? It has been announced that Pope Benedict will resign at the end of this month, mere days away. Will St. Malachy’s Prophecy soon ring true? Will ‘Peter the Roman’ be the next pope and there fulfill St. Malachy’s Prophecy of Petrus Romanus? For anyone who may be unfamiliar with St. Malachy’s Prophecy, the second excellent video below will fill you in. The doubters of St. Malachy have been proven wrong over time. It was said that he prophesized the very date of his own death, and got it right.
Saint Malachy (1094 – November 2, 1148) was known as great prophet. While in Rome in 1139 he received a vision showing him all the Popes from his day to the end of time. According to these prophecies, only two Popes remaining after John Paul II.
Through the centuries, his prophecies have turned out to be amazingly accurate, even prophesying the date of his death. In all, 112 popes and their characteristics are listed from 1143 to the alleged end of the world, or perhaps religion as we know it, when truth is inlay revealed about human creation and destiny.
Saint Malachy’s final words were: “Rome, the seat of the Vatican, will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.”
Eerie Accuracy Of Nostradamus Pope Prophecy
Pope Benedict XVl will resign Feb. 28th 2013 and then college of cardinals will elect, according to Saint Malachy’s Pope Prophecies, the last pope on earth before the end times. According to Nostradamus, the Pope will flee Rome in the month of December, when the Great Comet is seen in the daytime ‘the sun will appear double’ or the ‘sky will display two suns’. Enter Comet ISON.
