There are some serious problems with these Prophecies. It has all the hallmarks of a pious hoax.

I have to agree with you here. This reminds of all the hoo-ha over the "prophecies of Nostradamus", who . . . as Cecil Adams (somewhat) famously said, "did for B@!!$#*+ what Stonehenge did for rocks."

Note that only some of the phrases are translated - probably nobody can figure out how to make the others match up. (Of course, often little is known about the early popes.)

The clincher for me is that the list LEAVES OUT some of the antipopes . . . the easy way to make a sequential list "come out right" is to monkey around with the order.
