Attack on Rome?

   The St. Malachy prophecy was the most frightening prophecy ever recorded on the fate of the Catholic Church and the papacy.  In 1143 an Irish priest 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.  Saint Malachy described the popes on his list using brief 2 or 3 word Latin phrases referencing something about each pope, and according to prophecy fans, the pope who now occupies the Vatican is the last pope on Malachy's 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.  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 ever elected to the papacy.  And please note that this website posted its greeting to "papa Pedro," over a month BEFORE he was elected to the papacy.  When "Petrus Romanus" is translated into modern Italian, it produces "Pietro of Romano" and Pope Francis immediately decided to name himself after Saint Francis "de Pietro" of Assisi.  It was later found out 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 XVI saw a photo of the bolt of lightning striking the cross on the top of Saint Peter's Basilica, he asked if it was a real photo or a digital creation.  Archbishop Ganswein, Prefect of the Papal Household, and the Chaplain to his Holiness, stated he thought that Malachy's prophecy is probably true and might represent a wake up call for the Church.  Pope Francis I knows 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 Saint Malachy prophecy however, may be supported by other prophetic sources, such as the 3rd Secret of Fatima and the quatrains of Nostradamus, which also refer to the destruction of the city of Rome.  The infamous Third Secret of Fatima describes the execution of the Pope by soldiers who have invaded Rome, and the quatrains of Nostradamus refer to a statement being made by the Pope that will offend Rome's enemies and result in ruination for the holy city.  Rome in the distant past was attacked many times by its enemies, and most recently was opposed by the Islamic Ottoman empire.  The Ottomans have not existed for many years, but recent U.S. efforts to unseat Middle East dictators from their positions of power have produced a political void that can only be filled by a 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 Ottoman empire.  If you would like to read more on the St. Malachy prophecy, and also review its similarities to the Third Secret of Fatima and the prophecies of Nostradamus, click the link below and order a copy of Edward Oliver's 350-page book, "Prophets and Frauds."


     "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."
