Papal Prophecy

Lightning struck the Vatican hours before Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation of his position as the Pope.  He was the first Pope to stand down in 598 years but we can see the heavens are changing power.  If you have heard of the Papal Prophecies of St Malachy then you know that Benedict was predicted to be the second to the Final Pope.

Malachy in 1139 AD had a vision showing him all the Popes stretching from the successor to Innocent II and extending through centuries to the last of the line, identified as Peter of Rome. Malachy assigned short descriptions in Latin to each pope when he committed his vision to paper.

Widely distributed in 1595 the predictions that came to pass usually refer to a family name, birthplace, coat-of-arms, or office held before election to the papacy.  The final prediction for the Final Pope stated "In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end"

While officially the Vatican denies any accuracy of the Prophecy many of the choices to make the Pope fit the prophecy are easy enough to stage.  What's interesting though is the other Benedict XV (1914–1922), in the Malachy Prophecies where it stated Religio depopulata or "Religion Destroyed".  Of course that Pope reigned during, World War I. This unprecedented period of violence was mainly fought between the Christian powers of Europe began the worldwide spread of atheistic Communism.

Quatrain II-41
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will make two suns appear:
The large mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff changes his abode.
- Nostradamus

Nostradamus’ quatrains are confusing and open to many interpretations. But between the Comet ISON and the asteroid of February 15, 2013 we have exciting things ahead for us. 


  1. Thought provoking article! Good job bringing to our attention such historical prophecy! Indeed interesting times we are living.

  2. Wow... this was quite a trip... I read here, then followed the comet link (Wow!), which led to a link on the extinction of dinosaurs (again wow)... Considering your blog post cites a prophecy of "the end of the world" that seems rather appropriate... Interesting reading. Thanks T!
