It was the most frightening prophecy ever recorded on the fate of the Catholic Church and its papacy, and the prophecy actually came out of the Catholic Church itself! In 1143 A.D. a Catholic priest named Malachy O'Morgair recorded his prophecy on the next 112 popes who would occupy the Vatican from the papacy of Celestine II until the destruction of Rome. Malachy was eventually made a saint by the Catholic Church and his prophecy was locked away in the Vatican Library. In the 20th century the accuracy of Malachy's descriptions of that century's popes began to stir new interest in the prophecy, particularly since the "Last Pope" on Saint Malachy's list was about to be elected. St. Malachy's prediction had said that the last pope on his list, "Petrus Romanus," would witness the destruction of Rome.
In 2013 Pope Benedict XVI, the 111th pope, suddenly announced his resignation from the papacy. Later that same evening, a bolt of lightning struck the cross on the dome of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, and storm clouds formed in the skies over the Vatican. The Internet was soon ablaze with rumors concerning the Malachy prophecy on the pending election of "Petrus Romanus" the last pope of the Catholic Church. After 13 more days passed without a pope, it was the 13th day of March in the 13th year of the new Millenium at exactly eight hours and 13 minutes in the evening, when 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 "Peter the Roman" (Petrus Romanus) caught many prophecy followers by surprise, when pope "Peter" turned out 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 he was elected. Pope Francis (Petrus Romanus) chose to name himself after St. Francis "de Pietro" of Assisi, and it was also later revealed that his family came from a small town in northern Italy named "Romano," thus fulfilling Malachy's prophecy, since "Petrus Romanus" translates in modern Italian as "Pietro from Romano."
The Malachy prophecy created quite a stir in the Catholic Church. Catholic church officials issued all sorts of opinions concerning the Malachy prophecy. When Pope Benedict XVI saw a photo of the bolt of lightning striking the dome of Saint Peter's Basilica, he asked if the photo was real, and Archbishop George Ganswein, the present Prefect of the Papal Household, and secretary to retired Pope Benedict XVI, stated that he thought the Malachy prophecy is probably true, and may represent a "wake up call" for the Church. The St. Malachy prophecy is well known in Church circles and the Pope is aware of it, but not particularly concerned about the prophecy.
The Catholic Church still officially supports the validity of the Malachy prophecy, but does not support its reference to our current pope. The Saint Malachy prophecy however, predicts the destruction of Rome, and the infamous 3rd Secret of Fatima also seems to describe a similar event, including the assassination of a pope. Both these prophecies were supported by the Catholic Church and stored in the Vatican Library. Recent world events are beginning to raise new concerns about these two prophecies that have been ignored for so many years.
It is a fact that the United States government is now assisting in the systematic removal of Middle Eastern dictators, thus creating a void that will quickly be filled by a new Sunni Grand Iyatolah who will then be able to lead his loyal Muslim followers in a war against the forces of Christianity. Are we now in the process of resurrecting the Ottoman empire?

"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."
