I also must take this opportunity to point out my firm contestation that, St.Peter's martyrdom at Rome notwithstanding, St. Paul consecrated the Englishman St. Linus the first Bishop for the See of Rome. St. Linus reigned, according to tradition, from the Palatium Brittanicum.
What prophecies or prognostications might our fellow freepers offer for the future of this papacy ?
In any event, we hope this important article proves interesting.
Read Revelation -- not Satan, but the AntiChrist.
I predict that Cardinal Secola of Italy will NOT be Pope.
The world already has a Pope Secola. ( for you all in Rio Linda, PEPSI Cola)
This does remind me of a car bumper sticker I saw once:
Jesus is returning!
Quick, everybody look busy!!
I don't think this is correct. My impression has been Peter the Roman will be a strong Pope who will lead the church in desperate times. The man of perdition, the antichrist, will attempt to take the throne of Peter illegitimately. If that will happen during pontificates or in between, I don't know.
Does anyone know which cardinals or potentials are Benedictines?
What reason is there to believe the predictions are authentic and are matched up correctly with the Popes named? Isn't it classic hubris to believe you live in the "end times"?
How do you figure Peter the Roman will be Satan? What sort of anti-Catholic hate drives that expectation? The prophecy suggests tjust the opposite: that he will feed his flock amid many tribulations, a precise echoing of the establishment of the Papacy in the gospel of John: Peter, feed my lambs.
Separate what your source has written from what Malachy actually says:
"the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, 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. "
Now, here's what you have added to it:
"This final Pope will likely be Satan, taking the form of a man named Peter who will gain a worldwide allegiance and adoration. He will be the final antichrist which prophecy students have long foretold. If it were possible, even the very elect would be deceived. "
Will he be universally adored? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Malachy says he givern his church during a great persection!
Will he be Satan: ABSOLUTELY NOT! He will feed his flock (a Eucharistic reference) during their suffering!
Sounds like some rabid foaming at-the-mouth hate mongerer has perverted the prophecy, turning it on its head, to preach hatred.
No. There are no Cardinals, but there is a potential.
You're thinking that the "Glory of the Olives" will be a Benedictine? Another way to interpret the "Glory of the Olives" is that the man will be a peacemaker (think olive Branch). Or that he will be a converted Jew (the olive bush which was pruned, and grafted with wildolives, but will be restoed, from Romans).
One man, still merely a Bishop, Jean Baptiste Gourion, 70, Auxiliary Bishop of Gerusalemme, and titular bishop of Lydda.
I would also point out that there is a break in the lineage of St. Malachy. Peter the Roman is clearly an addendum. There is no reason to be certain that Peter the Roman will imediately follow The Glory of the Olives.
A couple of questions, though.
First, it was my understanding Linus was from Tuscany, what source do you have to confirm Linus was British.
Second, how can you possibly read St. Malachy's actual prediction and conclude Peter the Roman will be Satan. Everything in the prophecy points in just the opposite direction.
And third, I notice from your home page you are a Mason. Just out of curiousity, what is the highest degree you have obtained.
