Interesting Facts about the Papacy


The Prophecy of the Popes is a list of 112 briefs, ambiguous phrases (in Latin) which predicts the fate of the Roman Catholic popes. These prophecies are allegedly attributed to a 12th-century Irish monk named St. Malachy. He was in Rome in 1139 when he received a vision that led him to “see” all the Pontiffs from his day until the end of time.

One of these prophecies predicted that there are only two Popes remaining after John Paul II. So does this purport that the current pope, Francis, maybe the last Pope?
