For me, this has always been a fascinating prophecy:

The 111th pope has just announced his resignation.

Now comes...the end?  Interesting times...

yu know, if the third Fatima prophesy had a date on it, it's possible  Benedict retired to avoid  eing the Pope when it happened...

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Considering the chaos that has reigned in the church for the last number of years and this pope was supposed to be a peaceful one, I don't see how any of this is true. Nor did he try to sell off things within the Vatican to feed and preach to those who have never heard the gospel.

The following list of possible contenders for the Papacy courtesy of member Jeremiah65 in this thread:

http://www.unexplain...ic=242765&st=30

Francis Arinze - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Peter Turkson - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Angelo Scola - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Tarcisco Bertone - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Jorge Mario Bergoglio - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Leonardo Sandri - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Claudio Hummes - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Dionigi Tettamanzi - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Count Christoph Von Schoenborn - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Archbishop Raymond Burke - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal Marc Ouellet - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Daniel DiNardo - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Cardinal William Levada - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Archbishop Piero Marini - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Keith O'Brien - [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Gianfranco Ravasi - [link to en.wikipedia.org]

Cardinal Peter Turkson is rated as a popular choice for next Pope, some of the other contenders, if you check the links have Peter in their middle names.

Fact is, there will likely never be a "Pope Peter" - the church is not likely to fly so blatantly in the face of a prophecy from one of their own which is a harbenger of doom for them - but that does not mean it cannot apply if the christian name of a Pope contains that name.

The logical side of me knows this is nonsense but I can't help being fascinated nonetheless - interesting times.

We all know how well prophecies have flown around lately and their success rate is nil. I find it interesting that it was allegedly written in the 1100s, suddenly "lost" then conveniently rediscovered in the 1500s.

Some of the connections that have been made to the Latin descriptions for other popes has been a bit of a stretch - kind of like Nostradamus predictions.  I really cannot imagine that the new guy would take the name of the Fisherman.  On the other hand I understand that Catholics deny the legitimacy of this "prophecy" so a cardinal whose name included "Peter" might not be impossible to vote for.  Looking at the condition of the world today I think one would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to realize things are spinning out of control.

Maybe he'll be Alan or some other name like that - still derived from the same basic root (rock).

I simply can't see the prophecy coming to reality because you can't destroy Rome without p***ing off NATO.

They came with a Bible and their religion. stole our land, crushed our spirit, and now they tell us we should be thankful to the Lord for being saved.

Lots of reasons to think of this "prophecy" as impossible but worrying over the might of NATO probably isn't one of them.  It took NATO 6 months to defeat a rabble in Libya.

So, in summary - an old prophecy bears no relation to current events and lightning hits the top of a tall building.

Definitely worth its own thread.
