Knowing that we would not wish to lose sight of them (and the fellow who was editor of the Catholic Encyclopedia was a relative to a number of them).
Going backwards from today to the earliest listed pope the anti-popes show, in a general sense, the rise of a new Great Power with an interest in the church as a whole. We can see Spain's influence ~ and earlier France's. I haven't checked up on the earlier popes, but it's just the sort of thing you'd expect.
Missing from most modern histories is any reference to the sheer economic power of the former state of Brittany, and it's sometime satrapy called Cornwall. Their knights show up as the founders of important families in both France and Spain from roughly 800 to 1500.
When the Reconquista was brought to an end in 1492 the Breton knights could no longer pump Spain for income so they turned elsewhere, e.g. to Rome! Borja was an hispanicized Breton name ~ the progenitor a nobleman from St. Malo right near Mont St.Michael (McWal). That family was involved one way or the other in two popes and three antipopes ~ reflective of a waning of fortunes peddling knights to the Reconquista.
Why do we have to get the last Pope.Sounds like the last one is also aligned with the 3rd secret of Fatima.
The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fátima, on 13 May 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.
What do you think about this now?
Boy, is this an old thread.
