The St. Malachy prophecy was the most frightening prophecy ever recorded on the fate of the Catholic Church and the papacy. In 1143 AD an Irish archbishop named Malachy O'Morgair recorded the Prophecy of the Popes listing 112 popes who would occupy the papacy from the papacy of Celestine II until Petrus Romanus, the Last Pope, who would witness the destruction of Rome. Malachy described these popes using brief 2 or 3 word Latin phrases, that referenced something significant about each pope on the list. And according to prophecy fans, the pope who now occupies the Vatican is the last pope on that list.
On February 28, 2013, when Pope Benedict XVI unexpectedly announced his resignation from the papacy, the cross on the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica was struck by lightning, and the Internet was soon ablaze with rumors about the impending election of "Petrus Romanus," the last pope to occupy the Vatican. Then, after 13 more days went by without a sitting pope, it was on the 13th day of March, in the 13th year of the new Millenium, at exactly eight hours and 13 minutes in the evening, when St Malachy's last pope, Francis I, the two hundred and 66th pope, was finally announced on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica on a cold and rainy night.
The election of Malachy's last pope, "Petrus Romanus" or "Peter the Roman," caught prophecy followers by surprise when pope "Peter," turned out instead to be pope "Pedro," the first LATIN AMERICAN pope elected to the papacy. And please note that this website posted its greeting to "papa Pedro," over a month BEFORE his election to the papacy. When "Petrus Romanus" is translated into modern Italian, it produces "Pietro of Romano," and Pope Francis I immediately decided to name himself after St. Francis "de Pietro" of Assisi. It was also later revealed that the family of Pope Francis originally came from the small town of "Romano" in northern Italy.
The St. Malachy prophecy has caused quite a stir within the Catholic Church and many Church officials have issued opinions concerning the accuracy of the prophecy. When Pope Benedict saw a photo of the bolt of lightning striking the cross on the top of Saint Peter's Basilica, he asked his secretary if it was a real photo, or a digital creation. Archbishop Ganswein, Prefect of the Papal Household, and also the Chaplain to his Holiness, stated he thought that Malachy's prophecy may be true, and might represent a "wake up call" for the Church. Our present pope, Francis I, is aware of the Malachy prediction, but is not particularly concerned about it.
The Catholic Church still supports the validity of the Malachy prophecy, but doesn't support its reference to Pope Francis I. The St. Malachy prophecy however, may be supported by other prophetic sources, such as the 3rd Secret of Fatima, and Nostradamus Quatrain #10-65, which also seem to describe the future destruction of Rome. The famous Third Secret of Fatima describes an execution of the Pope by soldiers who have invaded Rome, and Quatrain 10-65 by Nostradamus describes a statement made by the Vatican that offends the enemies of Rome and results in ruin for the holy city. The Ottoman Empire, Rome's most recent enemy, was defeated in 1571 at the Battle of Lepanto, and hasn't been a major threat to the city since then. The Ottoman Empire faded from the scene a number of years ago, but recent American efforts to unseat dictators in Middle Eastern nations has produced a political void that may soon be filled by a new Sunni Grand Iyatolah who will once again possess the power to attack Rome.
It is incredible that the United States government would be the driving force behind the resurrection of the Ottomans, but the army of Islam is now once again rising in the Middle East.

"During a final persecution of the Roman Church, sits Petrus Romanus, who will feed his flock through many tribulations. This accomplished, the seven-hilled city (Rome) will be destroyed, and the Dreadful Judge will judge His people."
