And we reiterate that fact. This is not a biblical prophecy sign and should therefore be consider as simply a very interesting scenario which will be of interest to watch unfold. The next Pope, according to the vision of Catholic monk, St. Malachy, is to be the last Pope who will be at the head of the Catholic Church during the days of the Tribulation. This coming Pope, according to the prophecy, will also see the destruction of Rome.
So who is the odds on favourite to take up the position of the new Pope? There have been several names bandied about, but one very intriguing name to surface is that of a younger, (60's), Cardinal from Africa. His name happens to be Peter, (Peter Turkson), and hence our interest given the final Pope in the prophecy is called Peter the Roman. This Papacy candidate also has grand plans for the implementation of a one world financial and political authority to be established at the United Nations.
Another interesting item that caught our attention regarding this candidate for the Papacy, is that of a prophecy from none other than Nostradamus who foretold that a young black cardinal would take control of the Vatican during a ruinous time. Now, we realize that the track record of Nostradamus is dubious at best, and we give very little credence to any of his quatrains. But you have to admit, its just a little interesting given the events now transpiring in Rome. (See the quatrain below). This information was dug up by Chris Putman, one of the authors of the book, "Petrus Romanus - The Final Pope is Here". You can watch a brief 17 minute interview in which Mr. Putman explains some of this in more detail, (see video below).
We will be watching with great interest the next several weeks to see just what happens.
Pope resigns: Peter Turkson reveals vision for the Church and 'alternative lifestyles'
The cardinal who could become the first black pope said Tuesday that the Roman Catholic Church faces grave challenges in remaining relevant in the modern world even as he laid out a conservative vision of how to deal with society's "alternative lifestyles".
Cardinal Peter Turkson, a 64-year-old Ghanaian prelate, is the bookmaker's early favourite to succeed Pope Benedict XVI. He told The Daily Telegraph Tuesday that his biggest challenge, should he be elected, would be to maintain an orthodox Catholic doctrine while "at the same time knowing how to apply it so that you do not become irrelevant in a world that has continuous changes". Cardinal Turkson, who holds one of the most important jobs in the Roman Curia and has been repeatedly promoted by Pope Benedict, was quick to take a conservative line on gay marriage and other "alternative lifestyles".
Petrus Romanus - Part 12
With this in mind, one thought each of these papal contenders may want to consider is how many Catholics believe the sixteenth-century seer Nostradamus was actually the author of “The Prophecy of the Popes.” If that is so, a point made by the National Catholic Reporter earlier in this series concerning the popular West African Cardinal Peter Turkson being “young” in terms of electability at age sixty-three may have a way of coming back around. The “dark horse” candidate Turkson—and his ideas for a one-world financial and political authority housed in the United Nations—could become a remarkable and unexpected fulfillment of both the Prophecy of the Popes and Nostradamus’s prediction of an end-times “young black pope” who seizes control of the Roman Hierarchy with the assistance of conspirators during times of darkness and war. In Quatrain 6.25 Nostradamus wrote:
Through Mars adverse [a time of war] will be the monarchy Of the great fisherman [the pope] in trouble ruinous A young black red [a young black Cardinal] will seize the hierarchy The predators acting on a foggy dayhttp://www.raidersnewsupdate.com/petrus-twelve.htm
