Months before its release, the Vatican requested, and received, two copies of SAINT PAUL'S JOKE (Amazon, 2012) -- in it, we are told of the 1000 year old prophecy of St. Malachy ... which makes Benedict the 111th pope correctly named, and the last but one to Pope Peter.
The interesting wording is: "The last but one". It has confused every researcher for the past 500 years. Now we know -- St. Malachy might have seen an interim Pope between Benedict and Peter. Note that 1000 years matches the Book of Revelation in a way that comports well with all other time-period prophecy markers.
For a reason revealed in the book, March 25 (2013) is important in the life of this Pope ... For Catholics, and Christians in general, it might also mark a watershed in the history of the practices -- practices which St. Paul challenged in his canonized letters. Fortunately, only a select audience -- other than the 144,000 who needn't have -- read it ... so, if there is truth to religious prophecy, looks like a lot of people are going to suffer in the next few decades. Starting with the Destruction of Rome under a Pope related to the name Peter (Malachy identified #112 as Peter Romulus).
At 6:00 this morning (Monday, 11 February 2013) the Pope’s announcement became international news – now we wait to see how events play out with the one selected to replace him.
