The prophecies of the Irish saint Malachy, the 12th century bishop of Armagh who predicted all the popes, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. He has stated there will be only one more pope after the current one, and during his reign comes the end of the world.

I don’t think so- I believe he was Catholic.
Correctly interpreted, it is end of the age — not world. It means the end of the Catholic Church on earth prophesied by someone recognized as a saint. Suppose then that prediction is considered infallible.
I find it fascinating that St. Malachy, back in the 12th century, was able to accurately predict every single Pope.
strange and interesting.
Well I’ve pretty much seen most everything else, except the start. why miss the end
Actually, there are several places that says the world will end...here is one example:
1.2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
If the Religion Mod would let me the language would be far worse. This guy didn’t predict crap.
We tend to lose the distinction, between “world,” which is the nations, peoples and creatures of the planet, with the planet itself.
The planet doesn’t end. The created inhabitants and all their works, do.
My faith believes the Last Judgment in heaven took place in 1757 and the process laying the foundation of the Lord's New Church began in 1771 with the publication of the last of Swedenborg's writings which explain the doctrines of the Lord's New Christian Church.
The actual second coming can be considered on several levels. As an individual, within spiritually. This is something we can prepare for. Second, on a global level, events will play out as they do.
What's interesting to me is that there are some branches of the Church founded on Swedenborg's doctrines that believe the second coming of Christ will take place in person -- which is unusual because Swedenborg wrote that it would be by revelation only.
My personal belief is that there are a LOT of folks in place with mighty spiritual powers that are diagnosed as mentally ill and medicated. Some too are evil souls. My own healing ministry targets these folks to help them realize their place in the Lord's kingdom.
At one time, I made foolish statements here on Free Republic that I was the Messiah. I never changed my screen name -- its still there in my posts. Today, I just consider myself a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Messiah nonsense was just my old ego talking out of school.

Saint Malachy's predictions are no different than Nostradamus. They are so vague that it becomes easy to find some aspect of the prediction that seems right. God sake lets just let dump the College of Cardinals when Pope Benedict passes and let some half azzed writer from The Weekly World News figure out who Saint Malachy picked.
No need to be surprised. I’m only posting the threads on that subject. Lots of similar opinions (to yours) on them.
In Catholic theology, the Christian era is the End Times and we are obliged to be spiritually prepared not just for our own death but also for the end of this world.
I thought there was supposed to be a black pope in there.
I’ve surmised that this last pope will be an evil man.
