Posted on 04/02/2005 9:21:05 PM PST by Bob Evans
Papal Prophecies - End Days SAINT MALACHY
He was also known as Maolmhaodhog ua Morgair; Maol Maedoc; and Malachy O'Morgair.
Born -1094 at Armagh, Ireland. Died November 2, 1148 at Clairvaux
Canonized - 1190 by Pope Clement III; first papal canonization of an Irish saint
Malachy replaced the Celtic liturgy (the "Stowe" missal) with the Roman liturgy in an effort to bring uniformity and discipline to the clergy and those in religious life. A miracle worker and healer, he sometimes cured people instantly by laying his hands upon them. Friend of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux who helped him establish the Cistercans in Ireland, wrote a biography of him, and sat with him as he died.
One of Malachy's great claims to popular fame was his gift of prophesy. While in Rome in 1139 he received a vision showing him all the Popes from his day to the end of time. He wrote poetic descriptions of each of the pontiffs, presented the manuscript to Pope Innocent II - and it was forgotten until 1590. It has been in print - and hotly debated, both authenticity and correctness - ever since. According to these prophecies, there are only two Popes remaining after John Paul II.
St. Malachy was reported to have possessed the powers of levitation, healing, and clairvoyance. While on his way to the Vatican to assume the post of papal legate for Ireland, he fell into trance and saw a line of papal reigns stretching from the successor to Innocent II and extending through centuries to the last of the line, identified as Peter of Rome. Malachy assigned short descriptions in Latin to each pope when he committed his vision to paper. These mottoes usually refer to a family name, birthplace, coat-of-arms, or office held before election to the papacy. Some of the phrases are multiple prophecies, written with ingenious word play. For example, Pius II, who reigned for only 26 days in 1503, was aptly described as "De Parvo Homine" (from a little man). His family name was Piccolomini, Italian for "little man."
Sometimes the personal history of the pope plays a part in the motto given by Malachy. Clement XIII (1758-69), who had conenctions with the government of the Italian state of Umbria and whose emblem was a rose, was called by Malachy Rosa Umbriae, the "Rose of Umbria."
The passage of time has proved doubters of St. Malachy wrong, for his prophecies have turned out to be amazingly accurate. He even prophesied the precise date of his own death, and got it right. The prophecies concern the papacy, starting with Pope Celestine II in 1143. In all, 112 popes and their characteristics are listed from 1143 to the "end of the world."
Malachy's Prophecies - The Last 10 Popes
1. The Burning Fire. PIUS X. 1903-1914. This Pope showed a burning passion for spiritual renewal in the Church.
2. Religion Laid Waste. BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922. During this Pope's reign saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere.
3. Unshaken Faith. PIUS XI. 1922-1939. This Pope faced tremendous pressure from fascist and sinister powers in Germany and Italy, but he was an outspoken critic of Communism and Fascism which enraged Hitler.
4. An Angelic Shepherd. PIUS XII. 1939-1958. This Pope had an affinity for the spiritual world and received visions which have not been made public. Peter Bander says Pius XII "has emerged as one of the great Popes of all time," and he "was in the truest sense of the word an Angelic Pastor to the flock..."
5. Pastor and Mariner. JOHN XXIII. 1958-1963. John was a pastor to the world, much beloved, and the Patriarch of Venice. The connection to "mariner" is thus remarkable.
6. Flower of Flowers. PAUL VI. 1963-1978. Paul's coat-of-arms depicts three fleurs-de-lis, corresponding to Malachay's prophecy. His coat of arms included three fleurs-de-lis (iris blossoms).
7. Of the Half Moon. JOHN PAUL I. 1978-1978. John Paul I was elected Pope on August 26, 1978, when there was a half moon. He reigned 33 days, that is, about one month, when he died, although many think he was murdered. He was the 109th Pope - is "De Medietate Lunae" (Of the Half Moon). The corresponding pope was John Paul I (1978-78), who was born in the diocese of Belluno (beautiful moon) and was baptized Albino Luciani (white light). He became pope on August 26, 1978, when the moon appeared exactly half full. It was in its waning phase. He died the following month, soon after an eclipse of the moon.
8. The Labor of the Son. JOHN PAUL II. 1978-Present. John Paul II is the most travelled Pope in history. He has circled the globe numerous times, preaching to huge audiences everywhere he goes. Even though he was once shot, he has not seemed to slow down. He has recently written a book which has enjoyed a large circulation. Like the sun which never ceases to labor and provides light daily, this Pope has been incessant. John Paul II was born on May 18, 1920. On that date in the morning there was a near total eclipse of the sun over Europe. TProphecy - The 110th Pope is "De Labore Solis" (Of the Solar Eclipse, or, From the Toil of the Sun). The corresponding pope is John Paul II (1978-present). John Paul II was born on May 8, 1920 during an eclipse of the sun. Like the sun he came out of the East (Poland). Like the sun he has visited countries all around the globe while doing his work (he is the most-traveled pope in history).
9. The Glory of the Olive. The Order of St. Benedict has said this Pope will come from their order. It is interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives. This Pope will reign during the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of. The 111th prophesy is "Gloria Olivae" (The Glory of the Olive). The Order of Saint Benedict has claimed that this pope will come from their ranks. 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 fight against evil.
10. PETER THE ROMAN - 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. The 112th prophesy states: "In 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. The End."
Malachy's final words:
In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city (Rome, the seat of the Vatican) will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.
________________________________________ Saint Hildegard (12th Century) The time is coming when princes and peoples will reject the authority of the Pope. Some countries will prefer their own Church rulers to the Pope. The German Empire will be divided. Before the comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scourged by want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent will be devastated by earthquake, storm, and tidal wave. It will be divided and, in great part, submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea and lose its colonies. [After the] great Comet, the great nation will be devastated by earthquakes, storms, and great waves of water, causing much want and plagues. The ocean will also flood many other countries, so that all coastal cities will live in fear, with many destroyed. All sea coast cities will be fearful, and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed, and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the Laws of God. A powerful wind will rise in the North, carrying heavy fog and the densest dust, and it will fill their throats and eyes so that they will cease their butchery and be stricken with a great fear.
________________________________________ Bishop Christianos Ageda (12th Century) In the 20th century there will be wars and fury that will last a long time; whole provinces shall be emptied of their inhabitants, and kingdoms shall be thrown into confusion. In many places the land shall be left untilled, and there shall be great slaughters of the upper class. The right hand of the world shall fear the left, and the north shall prevail over the south.
________________________________________ Abbot Werdin D'Orante (12th Century) The great monarch and the great Pope will precede Antichrist. The nations will be at war for four years and a great part of the world will be destroyed. The Pope will go over the sea carrying the sign of Redemption on his forehead. The great Monarch will come to restore peace and the Pope will share in the victory.
________________________________________ John of Vitiguerro (13th Century) The pope will change his residence and the Church will not be defended for twenty-five months or more because, during all that time there will be no Pope in Rome... After many tribulations, a Pope shall be elected out of those who survived the persecutions.
________________________________________ Johannes Friede (1204-1257) When the great time will come, in which mankind will face its last, hard trial, it will be foreshadowed by striking changes in nature. The alteration between cold and heat will become more intensive, storms will have more catastrophic effects, earthquakes will destroy great regions, and the seas will overflow many lowlands. Not all of it will be the result of natural causes, but mankind will penetrate into the bowels of the earth and will reach into the clouds, gambling with its own existence. Before the powers of destruction will succeed in their design, the universe will be thrown into disorder, and the age of iron will plunge into nothingness. When nights will be filled with more intensive cold and days with heat, a new life will begin in nature. The heat means radiation from the earth, the cold the waning light of the sun. Only a few years more and you will become aware that sunlight has grown perceptibly weaker. When even your artificial light will cease to give service, the great event in the heavens will be near.
________________________________________ St. Vincent Ferrer (14th Century) In the days of peace that are to come after the desolation of revolutions and wars, before the end of the world, the Christians will become so lax in their religion that they will refuse to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, saying, "It is an unnecessary Sacrament."
________________________________________ John of the Cleft Rock (14th Century) Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith.
________________________________________ Maria Laach Monastery (16th Century) The twentieth century will bring death and destruction, apostasy from the Church, discord in families, cities and governments; it will be the century of three great wars with intervals of a few decades. They will become ever more devastating and bloody and will lay in ruins not only Germany, but finally all countries of East and West. After a terrible defeat of Germany will follow the next great war. There will be no bread for people anymore and no fodder for animals. Poisonous clouds, manufactured by human hands, will sink down and exterminate everything. The human mind will be seized by insanity.
________________________________________ Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser (17th Century) The fifth period of the Church, which began circa 1520, will end with the arrival of the holy Pope and of the powerful Monarch who is called "Help From God" because he will restore everything. The fifth period is one of affliction, desolation, humiliation, and poverty for the Church. Jesus Christ will purify His people through cruel wars, famines, plagues, epidemics, and other horrible calamities. He will also afflict and weaken the Latin Church with many heresies. It is a period of defections, calamities and exterminations. Those Christians who survive the sword, plague and famines, will be few on earth. During this period, many men will abuse of the freedom of conscience conceded to them. It is of such men that Jude the Apostle spoke when he said, "These men blaspheme whatever they do not understand; and they corrupt whatever they know naturally as irrational animals do." They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments. These are the evil times, a century full of dangers and calamities. Heresy is everywhere, and the followers of heresy are in power almost everywhere. but God will permit a great evil against His Church: Heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they will break into the Church. They will enter Italy and lay Rome waste; they will burn down churches and destroy everything.
________________________________________ Venerable Mary of Agreda (17th Century) It was revealed to me that through the intercession of the Mother of God, all heresies will disappear. This victory over heresies has been reserved by Christ for His Blessed Mother... Before the Second Coming of Christ, Mary must, more than ever, shine in mercy, might and grace in order to bring unbelievers into the Catholic Faith.
________________________________________ Sister Marianne de Jesus Torres (17th Century) The most Holy Trinity confirmed the desire of my Queen, assuring that God will bless all those who, by their support and help, contribute in the making of the Holy Statue, as well as all those who help spread this devotion (to Our Lady of Good Success) throughout the centuries, making known its origin and these apparitions in the 20th century. This will be a time of great corruption of customs. The sacred sacrament of Holy Orders will be ridiculed, oppressed and despised, for in doing this, one scorns and defiles the Church of God, and even God Himself, represented by His priests. The Demon will try to persecute the Ministers of the Lord in every possible way.
________________________________________ The Ecstatic of Tours (19th Century) Before the war breaks out again, food will be scarce and expensive. There will be little work for the workers, and fathers will hear their children crying for food. There will be earthquakes and signs in the sun. Toward the end, darkness will cover the Earth. When everyone believes that peace is ensured, when everyone least expects it, the great happening will begin. Revolution will break out in Italy almost at the same time as in France. For some time the Church will be without a Pope.
________________________________________ Pope Pius IX (1878) Since the whole world is against God and His Church, it is evident that He has reserved the victory over His enemies to Himself. This will be more obvious when it is considered that the root of all our present evils is to be found in the fact that those with talents and vigor crave earthly pleasures, and not only desert God but repudiate Him altogether. Thus it appears they cannot be brought back in any other way except through an act that cannot be ascribed to any secondary agency, and thus all will be forced to look to the supernatural... There will come a great wonder, which will fill the world with astonishment. This wonder will be preceded by the triumph of revolution. The church will suffer exceedingly. Her servants and her chieftain will be mocked, scourged, and martyred.
The controversy is over #112, because there were only #111 in the originally written version. #112 was inserted in a subsequent edition long after his death.
Actually,I was just thinking of this exact topic. However, I had no idea where to begin to look for it. Thanks !!
Like you, I've learned to keep an open mind,(Just in case !!)
I believe a great many things are possible in this world, which dreams are made of.
It is my greatest pleasure that in the last week of the Pope's reign, a Catholic friend of mine took me to about 5 Masses, including Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. It really meant something to me, and I am in fact thinking of converting to Catholic, providing the new Pope is a good conservative person.
Anyone have any info on how to go about converting? FReepmail me if you do.
Who knows what the future will bring, it is hard to turn a blind eye to Saint Malachy's Prophecies ... maybe, being a man of the cloth gave him the advantage.
We will know soon enough If he was correct
I just found that out yesterday. This site is really good...with lots of different information.
Peter the Roman will not be Satan.
Well, if you want to convert, you need to contact your town or city's RCIA office, Roman Catholic Initiation ? don't know what the A stands for. But be warned, there are many libs who have infiltrated such offices, and it is their interest not to pass on the faith. Therefore, I strongly suggest you invest in two simple books from the Faith and Life Religion Series published by Ignatius Press. Faith and Life series 7 & 8 which are for seventh and eighth graders preparing for confirmation. These two books, in a simple way, explain the foundational principles of our faith: the Fall; Abraham and the Patriarchs; Moses and the Ten Commandments and of course Christ's founding of his Church; the nature of the Church; the Authority of the Church; and the Hierarchical Church. Also, the Sacraments of Membership; Worship , and one of the difficult issues for non-Catholics the Catholic perspective on Mary and her relationship with us as Mother of the Church. Ignatius has an on line store.
I'm sorry I should explain in your town's parish (Catholic Church) there will be an RCIA office, or director. V's wife.
Thank you for the links (:^>
There may, or may not be a connection between the last Pope, The Bible Codes and a Comet or Asteriod coming in 2012!
Do a Google search for 2012 Comet and see what you think
If a Canonized saint wrote this from the Catholic Church sooo many years ago,it is probable, and more then one person even before this post has mentioned this saint and his prophecies.
The Bible tells of end times...as well, much much to all of it.
What an excellent reading suggestion. I will remember that when talking to others interested in converting or learning about the Church. Thanks to you, V's wife, for something really practical, Catholic, and useful for the future.
Methinks Saint Malachy was drinking a wee too much Mead at a Dublin tavern when this was written.
It's useful even for cradel Catholics as a refresher course. Furthermore, if you can talk your parishes Religious Education Director to use these books instead of some of the more au courant and banal textbooks, score one for the Faith. V's wife.
I don't think so.
Is there any Cardinal named Oliva? (Glory of the Olives)
No. There are no Benedictine Cardinals either. But, no matter who's elected, the propogators of these "prophecies" will contort him to fit into that slot.
In both the Old and New Testaments, the olive tree is a symbol of Gods chosen people, the Jews. Cardinal Lustiger is a Jew who converted to Catholicism at age 14 while hiding from the Nazis in the home of a Catholic family.
?? true or false??
people, i don't know. this is pretty far stretched. why don't focus on the teachings of the church and the good that our pope gave us. of course, if the next pope is a benedictine, i might get a little scared...
Lustiger is 79 and is no longer the Archbishop of Paris.
He will not be elected Pope.
No need to wait for the next Pope. After reading the report of the first St from the 12th century, which I had never read before, and my own series of vivid dreams, if they are true, then be prepared in mid Dec this year for the beginings of things. If not true, then for some reason spiritual warfare is focused on communicating these events.
French cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger, 78.
I pray he dosen't get it
Good suggestions of book titles. Interestingly enough, when I went through RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults), we had no textbooks. We listened to a "liberal" nun(what I realized later), and we read from scripture weekly.
The scripture sharing was great. The nun's take on history was informative, and she *did* talk about The Church's teachings (with her own personal commentary, of course...sighting other liberal/heretic "theologians" on occasion).
I have to thank her, and the parish itself, because 6 years later, I have a HUGE and still growing Catholic Teaching's library, because I still continue (and learn) the real teachings of the Church, and it's faith.
Best of luck in your "journey" into the One True Church, RR!
You wrote. 10. PETER THE ROMAN - This final Pope will likely be Satan
Where did this come from, Bob Jones University?
Interesting information. But I have an disagreement with one of his assumptions.
Some of his scenarios use the so called rapture to formulate his conclusion. But I never understood why the good people would be taken and the bad ones left behind. Could not the bad people be taken away and the good ones be left behind?
That quote cam from "Canticle_of_Deborah" not me (:^>)
"Well, if you want to convert, you need to contact your town or city's RCIA office, Roman Catholic Initiation ? don't know what the A stands for"
May I jump in here and add some clarification? First, a person wanting to join the Roman Catholic church would have to find a local parish, I don't think the town/city would be much help. Second, RCIA stands for "Right of Christian Initiation for Adults"
The last true prophet was John the writer of Revelations. All others are frauds.
It did not. Did you read your own article?
Bump for later reading....
Are there any Greeks? As someone else said, is there a Cardinal Martini?:)
That's the one!
Just because none of the Cardinals are Olivetans or members of other Benedictine congregations does not mean they do not identify themselves as Benedictine (hallo Vinko Cardinal Puljic). And while Cardinal Lustiger is aged, there are others who fit that bill who could just as easily be considered like Archbishop Jean-Baptist Gurion of the Hebrew speaking Catholics. No joy there, in my book, but there are so many possibilities that it isn't so much about contorting or contortion as it is sitting and waiting for the Holy Ghost's desire to be made manifest. Then we can rejoice as we behold gloriam olivae.
Just to let everybody know, there's going to be a solar eclipse on Friday, the day of the Pope's funeral. Interestingly, St. Malachy called Pope John Paul II the Son of the Eclipse. He was born on an eclipse and buried on an eclipse. Mmm, very interesting...
Correction, John Paul II was called the eclipse of the son, not Son of the Eclipse. Sorry about that.
Glory of the Olives.
Prediction: Cardinal Ennio Antonelli will be the next pope.
1. He's Italian and the vast majority of popes are Italian.
2. He is listed as papabile on the Catholic Encyclopedia (www.newadvent.org)
3. He was born in Umbria, one of the main regions in Italy for producing olives.
4. He is Archbishop of Florence, which is in Tuscany, another major region for producing olives in Italy.
I don't really know, but it's fun to guess.
Bump - Benedict XVI
Hogwash, throw some salt over your left shoulder and I'm sure everything will be fine.
I really want this to go to everyone but the "to:" section wouldn't accept "everone here", anyway on to my posting.
First, satan isn't going to be the last pope named Peter, the reasoning is in The Bible at the time of the end of the world satan will be here acting like The Lord Jesus Christ. Deceiving the world by performing miracles, etc. people who beleive in the rapture doctrine will be the first to flock to him.
Second, the last pope will be someone possibly like Peter, if not Peter himself.
Third and lastly, the new pope is named Benedict which is the same name as the order of the Benedicts or Olivants, so its possible what St. Malachy said came true. Some people say the last pope could possibly be Jewish, well Ratzinger is from Germany there's a possibility he could be a Jew and not a German, hence he would be the Glory of the Olives.
To everone again. The Glory of the Olives pope could be simply a peace maker!
9. The Glory of the Olive: Pope Benedict XVI
The Order of St. Benedict has said this Pope will come from their order.
It is interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives. This Pope will reign during the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of. The 111th prophesy is "Gloria Olivae" (The Glory of the Olive). The Order of Saint Benedict has claimed that this pope will come from their ranks.
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 fight against evil.
Traditionally, the olive branch has been associated with peace, but in both the Old and New Testaments it also serves as an emblem for the Jews. Putting the two together, some commentators believe that the reign of this pope will be a peaceful one during which the prophesied conversion of the Jews will take place. Several ex-Jews are said to be highly placed in the Catholic Church now. And, it is noteworthy that the previous Benedict (XV) was a pope obsessed with peace. Some others say, he will lead all faithful followers of the Lord Jesus to martyrdom and others say that he will tear down the walls of the Vatican, auctioning off all the objects within, in order to feed and enlighten those in the 3rd World who have not yet heard the Gospel of Christ.
