The Prophecy Of Saint Malachy The Soon Coming End of Days
The events of 1978 saw the death of Pope Paul VI, the election and unexpected death of John Paul I, and finally the election of John Paul II. Three Popes in one year propelled the world like a run away train toward the conclusion of a prophecy given by St. Malachy in 1139. The prophecy lists 112 Popes. The last Pope would take the seat of Saint Peter and the world would fall into anarchy. John Paul II was the 110th Pope. The Pope ruling the Holy See today is Benedict XVI, the 111th Pope, and according to the prophecy, the last Pope to rule an intact church and functioning world. The next Pope will not be the Vicar of Christ. He will be the enemy of the church, usurper of the throne and he will be called “Peter of Rome.”
The ominous prophecy has echoed through the centuries for over 870 years:
In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves
in multis tribulationibus: quibus transactis civitas septicollis diruetur,
& Judex tremêdus judicabit populum suum. Finis.
(In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term (end) of which the city of seven hills (Rome) will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people.)
Saint Malachy’s prophecy foretells the succession of Roman Catholic Popes from Celestine II [1143 AD] to John Paul II's successor, Saint Benidict XVI, who sits in the Chair of Saint Peter today. Malachy wrote that he was describing the pontiffs from Celestine II "...to the end of the world." At the end of the world, Malachy declared that Rome will be destroyed and God will judge his people.
Paul VI (1963-1978)
1. Flos florum
(Flower of flowers)
Hist.: His arms displayed three lilies.
John Paul I (1978)
1. De medietate Lunæ
(From the midst of the moon)
Hist.: Albino Luciani, born in Canale d'Agardo, diocese of Belluno, (beautiful moon) Elected Pope on August 26, his reign lasted about a month,
from half a moon to the next half...His month-long reign began with the moon half-full.
John Paul II (1978-2005)
1. De labore solis.
(Of the eclipse of the sun, or from the labor of the sun)
Hist.: Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920 during a solar eclipse. He also comes from behind the former Iron Curtain (the East, where the Sun rises).
He might also be seen to be the fruit of the intercession of the Woman Clothed with the Sun laboring in Revelation 12
(because of his devotion to the Virgin Mary).
His funeral occurred on 8 April, 2005 when there was a solar eclipse visible in the Americas.
Benedict XVI (2005-)
1. Gloria oliuæ
(Glory of the olive.)
The Benedictine order traditionally said this Pope
would come from their order, since a branch of the Benedictine order is called the Olivetans. St Benedict is said to have prophesied that before the end of the world, a member of his order would be Pope and would triumphantly lead the Church in its fight against evil.
While the Holy Father chose the name "Benedict", this does not seem enough to fulfill the prophecy.
Nor is it clear how Benedict XVI (a Bavarian) is "Glory of the Olives". Since he is said to have remarked in the Conclave after saying he would take the name Benedict that it was partly to honor Benedict XV, a Pope of peace and reconciliation, perhaps Benedict XVI will be a peacemaker in the Church or in the World, and thus carry the olive branch. Since this is an addition to Malachy’s prophecy, is this the Pope who will actually fulfill the 112th prophecy, the actual final prophecy of Malachy?
Pope # 268 is either the Pope now in office, or he is yet to be chosen.
In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves in multis tribulationibus: quibus transactis civitas septicollis diruetur, & Judex tremêdus judicabit populum suum. Finis.
(In extreme persecution, the seat of the
Holy Roman Church will be occupied by
Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep
through many tribulations, at the term of
which the city of seven hills will be destroyed,
and the formidable Judge will judge his people.
The End.) ....
