St Malachy vs The Final Pope

Saint Malachy was the Archbishop of Armagh, Ireland. In 1139 A.D., he delivered his Annual Report to Pope Innocent II in Rome. While he was in his bedroom waiting for his meeting with the Pope, he had a vision. The vision was the names or a cryptic phrase concerning the last 112 Popes. He immediately wrote down the names or phrases of each. The phrases involved either the birth place, family crest, monastery order, talent, or the name each person would choose when they became Pope.  He presented this list to the Pope during their meeting. The Pope reviewed the list, thanked Malachy and apparently had the paper archived in the Vatican library. The list was discovered in 1590 and was so astonishingly accurate that the Vatican published it in 1595.

The list stated that the 110th Pope would be named John Paul (II) and that the 111th Pope would be named Benedict (XVI), who was the first Pope to resign his position in 600 years. The last Pope or 112th was listed as being named Peter the Roman. Pope Francis was listed as Pope 112 and appointed on March 13, 2013.

Malachy’s prophecy that the last Pope would be called Peter the Roman was highly unusual. The name Peter has never been used by any Pope out of respect to the Apostle Peter who is considered by the Catholic Church to have served as the first Pope. There is now an understanding by the Vatican that no Pope will ever use this name due to Malachy’s prophecy.

Malachy named the final six Popes in these ways:

1958 - John XXIII, Pope 107: Malachy wrote, “Peter & marine”. Pope John was patriarch of Venice Italy a marine city of gondolas.

1963 - Paul VI, Pope 108: Malachy wrote, “Flower of Flower”. Pope Paul’s family coat of arms contains three lilies.

1978 - John Paul I, Pope 109:  Malachy wrote, “From the middle of the moon”. John Paul’s diocese was named Beautiful Moon. He was elected Pope on August 26th during a half moon and died 30 days later during a half moon.

1978 - John Paul II, Pope 110:  Malachy wrote, “Eclipse of the sun”. John Paul was born May 18, 1920 during an eclipse of the sun. On the day of his funeral April 8th 2005, there was an eclipse of the sun.

2005 - Benedict XVI, Pope 111: Malachy wrote, “Glory of the Olive”. Benedict’s monastery order was the Olivetans which has a coat of arms that includes an olive branch.

2013 -Present- Francis I, Pope 112:  Malachy wrote, “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Pope Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations, after which the 7 hilled city Rome will be destroyed and the dreadful judge will judge the people. The end”. Francis named himself after St Francis of Assisi whose full name includes the name Pietro or Peter. Francis’ father was Roman having been born in Italy but later moved to South America. His father’s name is Peter.

Many Bible scholars believe that the “seven hills” spoken of in the Book of Revelation is Rome and that the final Pope is asked by the world leader or Antichrist to help organize a One World Religion. In the middle of the 7 year tribulation period, the antichrist declares himself the god of the One World Religion.

This may be what Malachy is referring to when he says the final Pope will, “…feed his flock among many tribulations…”. Thus the religious leader has been duped by the world leader (Revelation 13:8, Revelation 17:3, 9). When this pronouncement is made, the military powers that support the world leader turn on the religious leader killing him and any others who do not agree to worship the world leader or the Beast, “… after which the 7 hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful judge will judge the people (Rev 17:16). The day of the dreadful judge who will judge the people is the return of Jesus at the end of the 7 year tribulation period. At His appearance, He will judge and simultaneously strike down all the unrighteous throughout the earth. He will then rule the earth in peace for the next 1,000 years also known as the Millennial Reign of Christ. (Revelation 19:11-15, 17-21, Revelation 20:4)
