The partial solar eclipse of 18 May 1920 was the highest magnitude partial solar eclipse of the 20th century with a magnitude of 0.9734 out of a possible 1.0 (total solar eclipse). There were 78 partial solar eclipses in the century with 18 May 1920 being the largest in magnitude and viewable over Europe. There were only 228 of all types combined during the century. There were approximately 36520 days in the century.

Only a fool says in his heart that God does not exist.
Actually, this is bogus. If the solar eclipse had happened when the Pope left us it would have happened the day he died, not on his funeral. This is called "stretching" a prophecy to make it true.
A New Pope
In this day where death took place from an office that was so high, a shaking shall begin through these summer months where great leaders of yesterday will lay down their sword and they shall meet their Maker. For the time of the death has come where I will remove some of the old and then millions and millions shall come into the Kingdom at one moment. For in 21 days from now a shaking will take place in the Roman Catholic Church. They will say, No it can not be why would they elect such a person? And then they will say, No we can not do it at this time. But it shall be done and I will bring the Spirit into the Roman Catholic Church and the Vatican there will be an infilling of the spirit of the Cardinals and the priests. This day I have received a servant. This day you call him the Pope. This day I call him My son. This day you said a pope has died, this day I say a servant has won.
Somebody finally noticed ping.
"The Prophecies of St. Malachy" are a Renaissance fake. It would be fun to write the predictions for popes post-1600 and their names on separate small slips of paper. Draw one from each batch and try to make the prophecy fit the man. That's about what the interpretations of popes post rem amount to. Or how exactly is the scholarly Benedict XIV a "rural animal"? Wake me when it all happens. . . .

"Rural animal" definitely is the most hilarious of the Malachy prophecies, except maybe for poor Pius VII being described as a "rapacious eagle." (Ah, say the supporters, but Malachy meant Napoleon, not the Pope himself.)

For an excellent book dealing with prophecy: Trial, Tribulation & Triumph described by Fr. William G. Most as "..a solidly theological work...He utlilizes chielf four solid sources, Catechism, Scripture, Tradition, and majority opinions of the Fathers....All of this Birch does, as we said, in a thouroughly scholarly, theological way. Now there will be no excuse for false notions or denials on the Antrichrist and the other last things. We are and should be extremely grateful to our author for this tremendous resource."
About St. Malachy's prophecies, author Birch notes: As discussed earlier, Nostradamus is also excluded. Similarly, the alleged prophecies of St. Malachy as to a "a list" or index of all the Popes from his day to the end of time have neen excluded."
The author notes, "In the opinion of this author, there is sufficient evidence of major "interpolation" of these prophecies.
This great book should be in every Christian home.
