The Irish St. Malachy made predictions for every pope from his day until the end of the world.WIKICOMMONS

The prophecies of the Irish Saint Malachy, the 12th-century bishop of Armagh, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. He has stated there would be only one more pope after Benedict, and during his reign comes the end of the world. So Francis could be the last.

The prediction in full is: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”

The father of the current pope was Peter, or Pietro, and was from Italy even though the family moved to Argentina.

In 1139, then Archbishop Malachy went to Rome from Ireland to give an account of his affairs. While there he received a strange vision about the future that included the name of every pope, 112 in all from his time, who would rule until the end of time. We are now at the last prophecy.

Will Pope Francis be our final Pope?

Will Pope Francis be our final Pope?

His predictions are taken very seriously. As one report states: “In 1958, before the Conclave that would elect Pope John XXIII, Cardinal Spellman of New York hired a boat, filled it with sheep and sailed up and down the Tiber River, to show that he was “pastor et nautor,” the motto attributed to the next Pope in the prophecies.”

As for the prophecy concerning the 111th pope, Pope Benedict, the prophecy says of him, “Gloria Olivae,” which means “the glory of the Olive.”

The Order of Saint Benedict is also known as the Olivetans, which many claims makes Malachy’s prophecies correct. The next and final pope then should be “Peter Romanus.”

St. Malachy gave an account of his visions to Pope Innocent II, but the document remained unknown in the Roman Archives until its discovery in 1590.

Many of the prophecies are spot on. For example, the one about Urban VIII is Lilium et Rosa (the lily and the rose). He was a native of Florence and on the arms of Florence figure a fleur-de-lis. Pope John Paul II is De labore Solis meaning “of the eclipse of the sun.” Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920, during a solar eclipse.

Peregrinus apostolicus (pilgrim pope), which designates Pius VI, appears to be verified by his many journeys to new lands.

So will Pope Francis be the last pope? The Irish seer of the 12th century has said it will be so. Time will tell.

Satan used to own America and South America, till someone left The Gate open and he/she and old Atlantis went under. 
Obama still has three weeks as President. Watch what happens to America’s joke of a democracy and Mabus make a mockery of “peace”.

Well now with Putin and his bed buddy Trump running the world I think that the prophecy of the end of the world could be here. These next few years are going to be very hard to get through especially now that Trump wants to expand the Nuclear arms race. Wow how could you people elect someone so dangerous? God bless*

Isn’t it possible the conclave votes for the next pope based on the prophesy? After all, it would keep their saints looking all saintly, wouldn’t it?

I am not Catholic. I read about the prophecy of St. Malachias and considered two possibilities: 1. That the prophecy is false. 2. That the prophecy is true.

I must admit I wasn’t particularly swayed by either side’s arguments, until I read the Latin phrase RELIGIO DEPOPULATA (Religion Destroyed, or to be more precise, “depopulated”). This refers to Pope Benedict XV, 1914-1922. It was then and there that I believed that the prophecy is legit.

I can think of no English word that precisely conveys the meaning of Latin DEPOPULATA. The best and most precise translation I can think of is Αnc. Greek ΕΞΑΝΔΡΑΠΟΔΙΖΩ, an Ancient Greek verb referring specifically to the death of all male population of an ancient Greek City State.

There simply is no better way than these two Latin words to describe the Bolshevik Communist Revolution of 1917 (and the widespread slaughter of Orthodox Christians that followed), the Armenian Genocide of 1915, and the extinction of the Byzantine population of Anatolia of 1922 as well as the state of the world between 1914 and 1922. I refuse to believe that this is mere coincidence. If a Statistician was to calculate the odds of someone proclaiming 112 random Latin phrases in the 12th Century and getting such an exact match of events for the period of even a single papacy, I believe the odds would be so low as to be completely insignificant.

In the things I hear about the early Irish, Scottish (Dal Riatan) mission. I feel an affinity and desire. The stories of men like St. Cuthbert speak to me and I wish I both knew more and could study and contemplate those men who seemed to me to have actually read about and tried to truly follow the teaching of Jesus.

The end of the world can have more than one meaning. Additionally no man shall know the day nor the hour.

Fr. M.J. O’Brien proved that this list of papal mottos was not composed prior to about 1550.  The most likely author is Fr. Arnold Wion who was the publisher of the list of 113 mottos in LIGNUM VITAE, 1595.  The list consists of 111 mottos of just one line, then a two line motto, and finally an eight line motto.  In 1624 Fr. Thomas Messingham published a critique of Fr. Wion’s list of mottos, and he altered if by combining the two line motto and the eight line motto into s single paragraph.  His action has had the effect of shortening Wion’s list by one leaving only 112 mottos when there are actually 113.  Every subsequent analyst has repeated Messingham’s erroneous conflation, and that is why no one can understand which motto actually applies in the present day.  Motto number 112 which applies to Pope Francis reads:


“In psecutione. extre-

     ma S.R.E. sedebit.” ——“He will reign in the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church.”


Pope Francis is not the last Pope and is not “Petrus Romanus.”

Jakkers ! We can’t even predict the weather from day to day. Lets worry about today and give it 100 % effort therefore all our yesterdays will have no regrets and we will take care of the future as it happens at the present. Anything else is a waist of energy better spent elsewhere.  Folks get off the internet and head to a local Pub hoist a pint and sing a song and see who joins in the chorus 😉  Make the craic ninety !  Slainte

It is very possible that he will be the last. The laity want to run the church.

Well, so far St. Malachy has been right on every Pope he named and in perfect order. And he died long before they all came along. Must be something to it.

People, please get a clue. The Messiah was never a Christian, and neither was Disciple or anyone who followed the Massiah teaches. You can’t find any Scripture, stating they used those Christianity to describe themselves. 

All of this madness comes from “Paul the Apostle,” the 13th Apostle, whom never really met Jesus, never was taught by him (Jesus). Paul saw a light. What other entity in the Bible is known by a light other Jesus; why it’s Satan, who is also known as the light-bearer (lucifer). 

Now, why would anyone believe a man, who killed Gods People and enjoyed doing it; a man, who more than likely created a religion; as a means to draw people away from the truth or merely as a means of control. Have you ever heard of the saying, “if you can’t beat em, join em?” 

Most, if not all Christian’s are leaving a (Pauline Christianity) and don’t even realize it; they don’t realize, it was Pual’s group of followers, who were called Christians, not Jesus and his twelve.

like seriously??? that is your best argument…….

 “All of this madness comes from “Paul the Apostle,” the 13th Apostle, whom never really met Jesus, never was taught by him (Jesus). Paul saw a light. What other entity in the Bible is known by a light other Jesus; why it’s Satan, who is also known as the light-bearer (lucifer).” does nopt make sense.

Dear all, 

The prophesies of St Malacy do not say the end of the World!  Please read: he said “afterwards, the End! ” You poor of understanding, do you presume to understand the meaning of the sentence of the prophecy by adding Words? 

Do you remember what Jesus taught when he said, “two men will be in the field,  one will be taken way…., two women will be grinding, one will be taken away and the other Left? 

Remember he was talking about “endtimes” MARK MY WORDS:-END TIME,  not end of the world. So what end do you want to think St. Malacy Meant?  Certainly not easy to know and the catholic church teach he’s that no body knows when (as Jesus taught. Hence don’t tag your misinterpretation of St. Malacy to the c.church.

Dear Steven sawyer,

The Catholic Church doesn’t follow the teaching of man. Catholics follow and uphold the perrenial teaching of Jesus handed down through the apostles. 

If you were not as blinded as the Pharisees,  you would understand what it means to be born again. But you follow it’s interpretations by man ( with a prayer formulated by man…..etc). So you are the ones who follow the teaching of Man! 

Even if the pope would preach error, catholics are not bound/forced to believe in him (Ref.  Cannon law 213-226 ). 

May the good Lord Jesus have pity on you. Amen.
