St. Malachy's Pope Predictions

111 popes prophetically predicted in succession. What are the odds that one man predicted them all correctly in succession? This man's vision was not serendipitous fantasy, but Spirit inspired revelation.

St. Malachy was a Catholic Archbishop of the 12th century who wrote a startling accurate list of every pope until the end of time. St. Malachy was a bishop who lived in Ireland and on a trip in Rome in 1139 AD he was struck by a vision of the future. In it the long list of illustrious pontiffs who were to rule the Church until the end of time were revealed. His writings of each pope were succinct, spelled out in latin, and written in symbolic representation.

Many of these prophecies are considered to be way too precise to be mere coincidence. Look at these examples: (The prophecy's English translation in parenthesis)

1. Religion Laid Waste (Religio Depopulata). BENEDICT XV. 1914-1922.
During this Pope's reign we saw Communism move into Russia where religious life was laid waste, and World War I with the death of millions of Christians who were carnage in Flanders Field and elsewhere.
2. Pastor Et Nautam (Pastor & Sailor) John XXIII. 28 Oct.1958 – 3 June 1963.
Before becoming Pope in 1958 he was the patriarch of Venice--a marine city.
3. De Laboris Solis (The Sun's Eclipse, the sun's labor) 1978 - 2 April 2005. Amazingly, Pope John Paul II was the only pope who was both born the day of an eclipse of the sun, and entombed the day the sun was eclipsed.

The final pope on the list. 111th: Gloria Olivae. (From the Glory of the Olives) This is the current pope, Benedict XVI

Then, after short latin prophetic sayings throughout his prophecies, he utters an ominous closing latin phrase.

In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city (Rome, the seat of the Vatican) will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. THE END.

Is it mere coincidence that prophesies from multiple sources: the Bible, Mayans, Nostradamus, and even St. Malachy are all coming together at the same time?

"For I know that the Lord is great and our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the Lord pleases He does, in heaven and in earth. In the seas and in all deep places He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries." Psalm 135: 5-7.
