    RUSH: Let's go to the audio sound bites. The White House this morning -- you know, this was markedly different, before we get to sound bites, just remember this. During the second term of George W. Bush, Pope Benedict showed up, and it was his birthday, and I was so moved by that that I, actually, right at 12 noon, I called the White House and I asked for somebody, it was Karl Rove, "I just need 30 seconds. I don't want him to go on the air, I just need 30 seconds with the president." "I don't think so....

    Pope Francis has once again spoken out about the global economic climate, decrying an economic system that “seems fatally destined to suffocate hope and increase risks and threats.” Speaking in Rome, the Pope condemned what he called a “throwaway culture created by the powers that control the economic and financial policies of the globalized world.”

    St. Malachy, an Irish archbishop born in 1094, reportedly was summoned to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While there, tradition holds that he had a vision in which details were revealed to him about all of the future popes. After he wrote the vision and gave it to the Pope, his document was filed in the Catholic Church archives and was left forgotten until it was discovered by Arnold de Wyon, a Benedictine historian, in 1590. In 1595, de Wyon published St. Malachy's vision in his Lignum Vitae.

    2013 Be Not Afraid: Catholic Families and the Prophecies of St. Malachy By Donald Prudlo, Ph.D. The announcement of the renunciation of Pope Benedict and the preparations for the conclave have once again brought to light the so-called “Prophecy of the Popes,” sometimes attributed to St. Malachy.At every papal election, these “prophecies” are trotted out, with the attendant tortured explanations about how their trite, nebulous descriptions fit whoever the pope in question is.  During this election some have been especially alarmed that the prophecies end with the next pontificate. It is good to give this issue a brief consideration...

    Are Cardinals Electing The Last Pope? If You Believe Nostradamus... By Carol Grisanti, Producer, NBC News ROME— (snip) According to an ancient prediction, this next pope will be the last. That theory dates back more than 900 years to when Malachy O’Morgair, the 12th century Archbishop of Ireland, had a vision. Legend has it that St. Malachy, as he is now known, had a strange dream while on a visit to Rome. He “saw” all the names of the future popes – complete with identifying characteristics – who would rule the church until the end of time. In his book,...
  • What Would You Do, If Obama Succeeds Benedict XVI as the Next Pope?

    Please, do not laugh. Barack Obama has the same qualifications to be Pope, as he has to be a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, or President of the United States. If Obama can win the Nobel Peace Prize, then we cannot say with 100 percent certainty, that he cannot become Pope. Stranger things have happened. As far as I am aware, one does not need to be a Cardinal in order to become Pope. The job is open to any Baptized male Catholic. Two Popes, Benedict IX (1012 - 1056) and John XII (930 - 964), become Popes when...
