It was the most frightening prophecy ever recorded on the fate of the Catholic Church and the Roman papacy. In 1143, an Irish prophet named Malachy O'Morgair recorded the "Prophecy of the Popes," which listed 112 popes who would occupy the Vatican from the papacy of Pope Celestine II until the Last Days. According to Malachy the last pope on his list would witness the destruction of the city of Rome. Malachy named the popes on his list using brief 2 or 3 word Latin phrases that described something about each pope. According to prophecy fans, Pope Francis was the last pope Malachy listed.
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, finally stepped out onto 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 can be verified by its accuracy in its description of 20th century popes, such as the papacy of Pope John Paul I whose papacy lasted for only a month. Malachy calls him Medietate Lunae, or "shortened moon" which references the extreme brevity of his papacy.
The U.S. is progressing well on its plan to remove the dictators of the political states of Iraq and Syria, and the result has been the formation of the new religious state of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). U.S. efforts have now resulted in the rise of a new Muslim Ottoman empire which might again pursue its war against Christianity and its seat in Rome.

"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."
