Wow, a new pope already? I was hoping they would stretch it out a bit. :P
Anyways, I found this in a forum about naming popes and I quote,
“…In my years of religious education, I remember Brother Bob tell me about this prophecy concerning the popes.
He said when the Pope is elected, he is given a secret manuscript that was dictated by Mary, mother of Jesus. He then chooses a name for his reign based on this ‘list of popes.’
Its all a doomesday prophecy.. but after 2,000 years can you imagine what documents are locked away in the Vatican’s library?
But Anyway, after Pope John Paul II passes away, there will be another pope, Pope Benedict XVI then Pope Peter II. There has never been a pope named after the first Peter before, and this signals the end of the Roman Church.
After googling, this is an interesting site on the idea:
The Future and The Popes
I do disagree with him saying that Pope Peter will not mean the end of the world.. well, I think it will not mean the end of the world, but probably the end of the Catholic Church–much as Nostradomas predicts that the Church and its corruption will end…”,
I suggest you check out what the article said. It’s very interesting.
