POPE FRANCIS: Is he the last pope? [1:58] – On December 12, 2022, the pontiff announced that he had had a vision of great destruction and desolation coming for mankind. He’s not the first.
FATHER OLIVEIRA: On Feb. 11, 2020, a Brazilian priest had a vision in which he saw Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI die in 2022, which has happened. He also saw what Pope Francis may be facing. [8:32] – I was most struck by the time line in the vision, which started with 2022 and ended in 2029.
My regular readers will remember me harping on the importance of HY5783 (September 26, 2022 to September 15, 2023) being a Jubilee year. The links are below if you want to refresh your memory about the meaning of a Jubilee year and the fact that it is simultaneously the 50th year, following seven sevens of shemitah cycles and that it is the 1st year of what may be the last shemitah cycle of all. The seventh or shemitah year of this cycle will start on September 21, 2028 and end on September 9, 2029.
GARABANDAL: Following the death of Pope John XXIII, Conchita (one of the Garabandal seers) received a message from Our Blessed Mother. “After this pope, there are only three left. Then [it will be] the end of times.”
Soon after, she noted that there would another who would govern the Church for such a short time that she wasn’t counting him. The uncounted pope was, of course, John Paul I, who died on September 28, 1978, just 33 days after his coronation. The three popes Our Lady referred to then were Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
Fr. José Luis Saavedra points out that the Spanish word Our Lady used for “then” does not mean “immediately.” Perhaps “then” covers the 9 years, 9 months, and 18 days between March 13, 2013, when Jorge Cardinal Bergoglio became Pope Francis and December 31, 2022, when Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI died and questions of Francis’ legitimacy became moot.
ST. MALACHY: In 1595, a Benedictine published a prophecy that he attributed to St. Malachy, the 12th-century Archbishop of Armagh. It consists of short, cryptic Latin phrases that allege to name all the popes until the end of time. It has been dismissed for centuries as a forgery, owing largely to the fact that the popes listed before 1595 were described in ways that are easy to understand, while the ones after are cryptic.
However, some analysts note the significant change in style between the two groups may suggest that the first group is a post-dated forgery, while the second group is genuine prophecy. And lately, with End Times stuff popping up all over, people have gotten interested in the list again. Here are the cryptic Latin phrases, translations, and proposed interpretations for the popes since 1963.
108: Flos florum > Flower of flowers – Pope Paul VI (1963-78). His papal crest had three fleurs-de-lis on it.
109: De medietate lunæ > On the half moon – Pope John Paul I (1978). His given name, Albino, means white, like the light of the moon. And perhaps the half moon refers to the brevity of his reign.
110: De labore solis > From the labor of the sun or Of the eclipse of the sun – Pope John Paul II (1978–2005). There were solar eclipses on both the day of his birth (May 18, 1920) and the day of his funeral (April 8, 2005).
111: Gloria oliuæ > Glory of the olive – Pope Benedict XVI (2005 – 2013). Pope Benedict XVI explained his reasons for choosing the name Benedict. “Firstly, I remember Pope Benedict XV, that courageous prophet of peace, who guided the Church through turbulent times of war. In his footsteps, I place my ministry in the service of reconciliation and harmony between peoples.” Olives, of course, are a symbol of peace.
112: In p[er]ſecutione. extrema S.R.E. ſedebit. Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis. > In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit. Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.” – Pope Francis (2013-Present). Skeptics point to the apparent lack of any connection between Jorge Mario/Francis and Peter the Roman. I’d love to know what his Confirmation name was, but I didn’t find it anywhere. IF he is Peter the Roman, perhaps it merely refers to the first pope, St. Peter, and the fact that Bergoglio, who was born and served in Argentina, became a Roman when he accepted the post of Bishop of Rome.
