Posted on 04/03/2005 4:19:28 PM PDT by paltz
When the cardinals of the world pick John Paul II's successor, they may well be choosing the next-to-last pope.
The pope who then follows this choice in the Chair of St. Peter will be the last pope, and after his reign Rome will be destroyed.
Such has been the prophecy of St. Malachy, an Irish bishop who at his death in 1148 A.D. was discovered to have left behind a prophetic list of all future popes beginning with Pope Celestine II, whose papacy began in 1143 A.D.
Malachy included a single line in Latin identifying a characteristic of each pope.
Historians say Malachy's prediction wherein he listed just 112 popes has been amazingly accurate.
According to his list, there are just two more popes after the late John Paul II.
Here are the seven last popes as identified from St. Malachy's list:

107. John XXIII 1968 - 1963
Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli
Pastor Et Natua
Translated: Pastor and Mariner
108. Paul VI 1963 - 1978
Giovanni Battista Montini
Translated: Flower of Flowers
109. John Paul I 1978 - 1978
De Medietate Lunae
Translated: Of the Half Moon
110. John Paul II 1978 - 2005
Karol Jozef Wojtyla
De Labore Solis
Translated: From the Toil of the Sun
111. The next pope
Translated: The Glory of the Olive
112. The last pope!
Translated: Peter the Roman
Wrote St. Malachy of the last pope: "In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge the people. The End."
According to his biographer St. Bernard of Clairvaux, in his book "Life of Saint Malachy," the saint was known to have the gift of prophesy and had even predicted the exact day and hour of his own death. Saint Malachy was canonized in 1190 by Pope Clement III.
While in Rome in 1139, Saint Malachy is said to have gone into a trance and received a vision in which he foresaw all the popes from the death of Innocent II until the end of time.
Afterward he wrote a few words about each pope and gave the manuscript to Pope Innocent II, who is said to have deposited it in Vatican Archives, where it lay forgotten until it was discovered in 1590 and published. At the time, some questioned its authenticity and it has been the subject of debate ever since.
The manuscript contains 112 prophecies, which scholars have matched with each of the 110 popes and anti-popes since Innocent II .
Here are the prophecies for the most recent popes:
Today the final two prophecies are yet to be fulfilled:
The 111th prophecy is "Gloria Olivae" (The Glory of the Olive). The meaning of the olive is unclear. The Order of Saint Benedict not St. Malachy has claimed that this pope will come from its ranks and Saint Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world his Order, known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its final fight against evil.
The 112th prophecy says, "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus (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.

THEIR world ended about 441 years earlier than they predicted it would!
"I'm waiting to see what Nostradamus said on the subject.
I hope he foresaw a UNC victory tomorrow nite....
He doesn't mention a ram anywhere, does he?
Nope, second book, thirtieth quatrain, "In the year of two Popes, the orange machine from the North shall rise up and smite those with heels of Tar.
He is a succession of the Ultrecht Succession-The North American Old Roman Catholic Church or something like that. So, no, he's not a Roman Catholic Priest of the Latin Rite.
I think he and Sinead O'Connor have about the same legitimacy as far as their Priesthoods are concerned.
Who are those nut jobs????
Father Andrew Wingate returned to Coast to Coast for a quick update. He was talking with George Noory.
He still maintains that Pope John Paul II will be cured of his illness. He says do not believe anything we are told in the news. Wingate says the Vatican will not announce the Pope is dead because he will be cured.
He stands by everything he said on March 16th. But he did add that if the Pope does die then he is going to have to re-evaluate a lot of things.
Yes. He should re-evaluate a lot of things. (Gee, d'ya think? LOL)
The Glory of the Olives doesn't necessary have to mean the place they are from
Traditionally, the olive branch has been associated with peace
For those who don't know about St. Malachy
Regarding prophecies and predictions, rare is the prophet who say the future is inevitable. People who have the ability to see into the future serve as emissaries, warning of what might be, not what will become. Had people took the prophets and predictors seriously, horrors would not heave come to pass.
I wouldn't knock Nostradamus. He was a good Christian who it seems got his amazing gift as a blessing from God. The reason he became quite inaccurate in the later parts of his predictions is because we prevented the future from happening. HE said himself that these are not things that will be but things that may.
With St. Malachai, so far his predictions have been spot on. It is up to us to ensure that this world will have many good Popes for centuries to come by squashing the socialist and jihadi scourge. The same for the Revelations in the New Testament. We must make sure that the anti-Christ and Dragon will never come to be.
This prophecy, which is distinct from the prophecies attributed to St. Malachy concerning the popes, is to the effect that his beloved native isle would undergo at the hands of England oppression, persecution, and calamities of every kind, during a week of centuries; but that she would preserve her fidelity to God and to His Church amidst all her trials. At the end of seven centuries she would be delivered from her oppressors (or oppressions), who in their turn would be subjected to dreadful chastisements, and Catholic Ireland would be instrumental in bringing back the British nation to that Divine Faith which Protestant England had, during three hundred years, so rudely endeavoured to wrest from her. This prophecy is said to have been copied by the learned Dom Mabillon from an ancient manuscript preserved at Clairvaux, and transmitted by him to the martyred successor of Oliver Plunkett.
Maybe I missed that particular English History class, but I really don't remember reading the part about where England converted back to Roman Catholicism around 1848.
Even if he gets the end of the world right, St. Malachy is still only 1 for 2.
T. Boone Pickens has been much better predicting $60 oil!
What if the new Pope chooses the name Peter?
Still a lot of them are correct.
.. so maybe it was the Mayans. It won't matter in 2013. BTW, what time will the rotation cease?
They are still INCAs but they don't know it... and perhaps it was the Mayans. Are they still around?
