PROPHECIES OF THE PARANOID?

There are some very strange currencies in the world.. the Pope may be debating whether dogs go to heaven and what limits on the freedom of speech should exist when discussing religion, but there is something far more supernatural potentially happening..

I read a report in the CATHOLIC WORLD REPORT concerning whether a “future pope may be forced to flee Rome” ..

The story was written by William Kirkpatrick and discusses the arc of history–and the idea that we are being drawn back to a time when darker forces ruled half of the civilized world..

The perspective is obvious.. the source is a Catholic paper, so don’t expect anything to deviate from doctrine.. But Kirkpatrick wrote one thing that caused me pause:
“If Rome ever falls to Islam, the pope—whoever he may be at that time—may choose to remain in Rome and suffer the almost certain martyrdom that would follow. That is up to him and the Holy Spirit. However, in light of the escalating Islamization of Europe, it would seem prudent for Vatican officials to draw up some contingency plans.”    

There is one thing that chilled me with that statement..

St. Malachy, for those keeping score, may be predicting that Bergoglio, Francis, is the final pontiff.. Malachy prophetically said:
 “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End..”  

And another: PIUS X fell into a bit of a trance in 1909.. he said this:
What I have seen was terrible… Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the Pope will quit Rome, and in fleeing from the Vatican he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests. Do not tell anyone while I amalive.”

  This is why seeing articles about a Pope fleeing Rome is a bit chilling when considering the tidal wave of prophecy portending a final Pope among us..
