St. Malachy ‘Prophecy of the Popes’
The next pope, the one that will succeed Pope Benedict XVI (#266), will NOT go by the name ‘Peter the Roman,’ ‘Pope Peter the Roman,’ ‘Peter II,’ ‘ Petrus Romanus,’ ‘Pietro the Great, ‘Pete of Ireland,‘ or any name, in anyway, that has anything to do with ‘Peter.’
I will even go as much to say that the next pope will even bypass ‘Paul VII,’ though it is a perfectly valid papal name, because of St. Paul’s association with St. Peter.
I am NOT sure how I can make this any clearer. The St. Malachy prophecy that claims that the next pope will be ‘Peter the Roman’ will NOT come to pass.
If you check my work (which is readily available, in large quantities on the Web) you will see that I, usually, do NOT hesitate to admit that I might be wrong. During my star-crossed life I have learned that fallibility is my faithful handmaiden, though my track record for veracity leaves most in the dust.
As far as I am concerned, there are no IF AND BUTS. There are no caveats or weasel words.
The next pope will NOT be Peter the Roman.
I am as certain of this, as I am that the sun will rise tomorrow morning.
How can I be so certain, in this instance?
Please do appreciate that it is not just a trivial matter of the next pope wanting to be known as ‘Peter the Roman.’ Per the prophecy, having a pope named ‘Peter the Roman’ signals the end of the Church and the fall of Rome. That is rub. That is why I have always been so sure that we will never see a pope called ‘Peter the Roman’ or even ‘Peter II.’
Why the certainty …
Simple, it has all to with the 100 to 120 cardinal electors that will elect the next pope.
So let me explain this to you, diplomatically and tactfully as possible, using as many euphemism that I can muster.
IF YOU believe that the next pope will be called Peter the Roman you are ALSO SAYING (possibly without realizing it) that ALL the cardinal electors are gaumless and hapless.
That is where we DIFFER, and why I am so, so, so confident that the next pope will not be Peter the Roman or Peat of Ireland.
Irrespective of what YOU think of the cardinal electors, I know that at least 30, possibly quite a LOT MORE, are very savvy, ‘smooth operators’ with a well developed sense of self-preservation.
Think about it. You don’t become a Prince of the Church if you really can’t find your way around the proverbial block.
Plus, I am sure, that there are at least 10 among my 30 ‘smooth operators’ who are physically strong enough to forcibly subdue any among them that was elected pope.
So I will go along with you, I will compromise, because I want to be the ‘good cop.’
I will AGREE with you that the next pope, per Malachy, will be the last pope.
I will AGREE with you that the next pope, per Malachy, will feed the flock through many tribulations.
I will AGREE with you that the next pope, per Malachy, will preside over the destruction of Rome.
I will AGREE with you that the next pope, per Malachy, will lead all of YOU to be judged by a formidable judge.
I will AGREE with you that the next pope, per Malachy, will even tell the cardinal electors convened in the Sistine Chapel that he wishes to be known as ‘Peter the Roman.’
I will concede that the next pope-elect will tell his electors that he wants to be ‘Peter the Roman.’
BUT, that is where WE part company.
In my book, at this juncture, my 10 brave, physically robust cardinal electors, Schonborn, Fox Napier and Barbarian, among this number … JUMP the pope-elect.
These cardinals are not going to sit idle while the Church and Rome are destroyed. It won’t be the first time a pope-elect has had hands placed on him.
That is why they wear RED. They are supposed to shed their blood to defend the Church.
To have the next pope be Peter the Roman is to say that the Church, Rome and Western Europe are at an end.
There are at least 30 cardinals savvy enough to make sure that this will not happen.
Do you get that?
Screw the prophecy. Think about the cardinal electors. There are some very SAVVY operators in that pool. They are NOT going to have NATO troops marching in on the Vatican.
So … PLEASE … PLEASE.
Can we PLEASE stop this charade.
The NEXT POPE will NOT BE Peter the Roman.
