Doomsayers Say Benedict Fits World End Prophecy
|| 4/28/2005 || 7:05 pm || Comments Off on Doomsayers Say Benedict Fits World End Prophecy || ||

Thu Apr 28, 9:17 AM ET

ROME (Reuters) – Pope Benedict’s ascent to the papacy took a conclave of 115 cardinals, four rounds of voting and followed a lifetime of service to the
Vatican.

But ask Internet doomsayers eyeing a 12th century Catholic prophecy and they’ll tell you it was all stitched up more than eight centuries ago and that judgment day is nigh.

The prophecy — widely dismissed by scholars as a hoax — is attributed to St. Malachy, an Irish archbishop recognized by members of the Church for his ability to read the future.

Benedict, believers say, fits the description of the second-to-last pope listed under the prophecy before the Last Judgement, when the bible says God separates the wicked from the righteous at the end of time.

“The Old Testament states: ‘believe his prophets and you will prosper’ — so believe it. We are close to the return of the Judge of the nations. Christ is coming,” wrote one Internet post by the Rev. Pat Reynolds.

“Thank God for the witness of St. Malachy.”

St. Malachy was said to have had a vision during a trip to Rome around 1139 of the remaining 112 Popes. The new pope would be number 111 on that list, and is described in a text attributed to St. Malachy as the “Glory of the Olive.”

To connect Benedict, a pale, bookish German, to anything olive takes some imagination. But Malachy-watchers point to the choice of the name Benedict — an allusion to the Order of Saint Benedict, a branch of which is known as the Olivetans.

“When (he) chose the name Benedict XVI, this was seen as fulfilling the prophecy for this pope,” wrote one entry on www.wikipedia.org.

Benedict said that he chose the name partly in honor of Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922), calling him a “courageous prophet of peace.” On Wednesday, Benedict dedicated his papacy to “the service of reconciliation and harmony between peoples.”

“Perhaps Benedict XVI will be a peacemaker in the Church or in the world, and thus carry the olive branch,” speculated www.catholic-pages.com.

Another site, www.bibleprobe.com, went even further, showing a picture of Benedict holding olive branches in March during Palm Sunday celebrations.

“Is this the Pope of Peace (olive)?” it asked in the caption.

Critics widely dismiss the Malachy prophecy as a forgery and possible propaganda meant to influence a 16th century conclave. Doses of skepticism even appear on the most energetic Malachy web pages.

But believers point out similarities between the prophecy’s descriptions and past pontificates.
Pope John Paul II, number 110, was described in the prophecy as “de labore solis” — or “of the labor of the sun.”

He was born on May 18, 1920, the same day as a solar eclipse. The pontiff was buried on April 8, 2005 — the same day as a partial eclipse, visible in the Americas.

More pressing for doomsayers are the prophecy’s references to the last Pope on the list, Peter the Roman, who will lead the Church before “the formidable judge will judge his people.”

Since Benedict is already 78 years old, they say Peter the Roman must be coming soon, and with him, the end of the world.

“His reign will only last a few years at most. This signals that we are living in what may be the end of days as we know it,” said one Web Site entry by someone calling himself SmartBob.

You’ve got to wonder if the prophesy is a self-fulfilling one. Since the Vatican knows of this old text, I wonder if it is used to sway the votes one way or another. I’ve also got to wonder if the last Pope is also the current pope. From what I’ve read, the text does not delineate the last pope also being the second to last pope. Maybe God’s Rottwelier, might also be Peter the Roman as well. My old friend David always joked about 2008 being the year when shit was gonna hit the fan. I personally like to think that the Mayan calendar, which ends on 12/21/2012, will be a bit more interesting.

This text by Aluna Joy Yaxk’in is from 1999, so I am going to cut & paste rest of the text to see if some of her predictions turns out to be true….
