Pope Benedict XVI Resigns

In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.

-The Prophecies of St. Malachy

By now, the news of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation has quickly reached around the globe. Dedicated Catholics have started to speculate what path the church will take. Will there be a positive re-evaluation of the faith or is this a sign of negative things to come?

In any case, the event of papal resignation is extremely rare. Only happening five times in the past. This is the first resignation in nearly 600 years ago, the last being Pope Gregory XII in order to end the Western Schism.

But my blog post is not meant to rehash the news. Instead, I was instantly intrigued by the possible correlation to The Prophecies of St. Malachy of 1139. According to prophecy, Pope Benedict XVI’s position marks him just before the final important figure in Malachy’s prediction, Peter the Roman.

The enigmatic figure is prophesied to guide the faithful sheep in a time of tumultuous of upheaval, finally ending in the destruction of the Holy Roman Empire.

I do not know what this means nor do I have much faith in prophecy myself. But as a curious observer of the world I am deeply intrigued to see what the future unfolds.

  1. We are on the same page! As soon as I heard about the Pope’s resignation, I thought of the prophecies of St. Malachy. We just have to follow Jesus’ advice– watch and pray..

      I’m always glad to hear some one is paying attention. I’m sure the media will latch onto this soon. Personally, I’m not religious, but I think you have some pretty good advice to follow.

      Thanks for the comment.

    i will tell you that back in late dec,early jan,there was two planets that made themselves visible, and the two are the one with the rings, and the next biggest one,so, if theres any connection to benedict stepping down,i am still left wondering

    • mikurz says:

      First, you need to clarify what planets where? Who found them? Do you have a link to an article?

      We find planets all the time, its hardly surprising for something like the Hubble Telescope to transmit images of distant planets back. So without specifics, I can’t say anything.

      Secondly, I seriously doubt that discovery of two planets months prior would have anything to do with the inner politics of the Roman Catholic Church. Nevertheless, I’d be happy to see information if you send it.
