This is inaccurate in several respects.

First of all, the Benedictines are not as a group called "Olivetans." The Olivetans were a branch of Benedictine reformers, striving for a more austere and ascetical monastic practice. Even at their peak centuries ago, they never more than a small minority within the Benedictine Order, and now they are much dwindled in number.

So that's a very slender connection to Olives.

Also, Benedict XVI is not, and never was, a member of the Benedictine Order. So the slender connection turns out to be no connection at all.

Secondly, Cardinal Ratzinger never endorsed the reported Medjugorge mystical phenomena, and says that supportive statements published hither and yon were "made up out of thin air."

You can read about that here:

Interesting thread! I enjoyed the discussion about the Malachy prophecy. It would seem that at the very least, he was off about this Pope, unless some other connection can be made.
