Malachy’s prophecy is considered by the church to be a hoax.
Maybe, maybe not.
Is this the final thread on Pope Francis being the final pope?
It is curious.
Piffle. This is like the guy at my college who was sure we were going to have a nuclear holocaust, only exams always happened instead, and the rent was always due ...
I don’t blame people who just want everything to END, somehow ... living every day can be really hard.
No and no...
If you want to know what to watch for read St. Hildegard’s prophecy...
When the great ruler (the Great Monarch who is to rule Europe after the collapse of Communism) exterminates the Turks almost entirely, one of the remaining Mohammadans will be converted, become a priest bishop and cardinal, and when the new pope is elected (immediately before Antichrist) this cardinal will kill the pope before he is crowned, through jealousy, wishing to be pope himself; then when the other cardinals elect the next pope, this cardinal will proclaim himself Anti-pope, and two-thirds of the Christians will go with him. He, as well as Anti-christ, are descendants of the tribe of Dan.
An unchaste woman will conceive an unchaste son. The wicked serpent who deceived Adam will influence this child in such as way that nothing good or virtuous will enter him; nor under the circumstances will it even be possible for any good to be in him
The mark (of Antichrist) will be a hellish symbol of Baptism, because thereby a person will be stamped as an adherent of Antichrist and also of the Devil in that he thereby gives himself over to the influence of Satan. Whoever will not have this mark of Antichrist can neither buy nor sell anything and will be beheaded.
What is certain is that the fake "Prophecy of St. Malachy" is fake.
Much more of Obama’s gormless and feckless foreign policy, Moslem intransigence, Iranian/North Korean brinkmanship, and Russian and/or Chinese belligerence, and we may ALL be viewing the ruins of the Vatican through a radioactive haze - those of us left alive, anyway.
You foolishly store up earthly treasures, and yet this very night your life will be asked of you.
Don’t waste your time deciding the meaning of the latest end times interpretation.
look into your crystal ball sheesh I have no use for stupid articles like this
Is Pope Francis the final pope?
I heard someone the other day speculate that, because of the punctuation in the prophecy, there could be a gap. So you get Benedict, then a gap of uncertain length, then Petro Romano.
This was from a dispensationalist, of course.
