Misfortune of Vatican. Year 2029 Category: Vatican Penultimate Pope will sit

Last Pontificate. Year 2032

The «Prophecy of the Popes» written by St. Malachy of Armagh gives short descriptions to 113th Popes beginning with Celestine II (papacy began on September 26, 1143). As Prophecy predicts, there are two more Popes after Benedict XVI. The 73rd motto «Axle in the midst of a sign» can be interpreted as the exact middle of the reign of all the Popes in the prophecy. Then, the end of papacy of the last Pope will fall on Thursday, March 18, 2032.

Prophecy of the Popes

Figure on the right shows the final portion of the «Prophecy of the Popes» in «Lignum Vitae», 1595, p.311

The «Prophecy of the Popes» was first published in 1595 by Arnold de Wyon, as part of his book «Lignum Vitae». This prophecy is attributed to St. Malachy (1094—1148), the Archbishop of Armagh in Ireland.

The Prophecy consists of 111 short single-line paragraphs and two multiple-line paragraphs. These 113 paragraphs describe the Roman Popes, beginning from Pope Celestine II (whose papacy has begun on September 25, 1143).

In the table below, the Latin text of the Prophecy (as published in «Lignum Vitae») is shown in the highlighted cells.

Motto (latin)    Pope's Name (latin)    Explanation (latin)
Pope No.    Motto No. and translation    Regnal Name (Reign)    Explanation
Ex caſtro Tiberis.    Cœleſtinus. ij.    Typhernas.
167    1. From a castle of the Tiber.    Celestine II (1143—1144)    An inhabitant of Tifernum.
   ...    ...    ...
...    ...    ...    ...
Gloria oliuæ.
267    111. Glory of the olive.    Benedict XVI (2005—2013)    Chose the name Benedict after St. Benedict who started the Benedictine order whose Crest is an Olive Branch.
In psecutione extrema S.R.E. ſedebit.
268    112. In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit.    Francis (2013—)    His motto, «Miserando atque eligendo», is taken from a homily of St. Bede on Мat 9:9-13, who commented that Jesus "saw the tax collector and, because he saw him through the eyes of mercy and chose him, he said to him: 'Follow me'".
Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.
269    113. Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.

Two more Popes after Benedict XVI

Practically all commentators agree that the current Pope Benedict XVI corresponds to the 111th motto lat. «Gloria Oliuae».

Let us carefully consider the last two paragraphs of the Latin text of the prophecy:

lat. In psecutione extrema S.R.E. ſedebit.
eng. In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit.

lat. Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus tranſactis ciuitas ſepticollis diruetur, & Iudex tremẽdus iudicabit populum ſuum. Finis.
eng. Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.

Often these two paragraphs are combined together as the prophecy of the last Pope Petrus Romanus:

«In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations: and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people. The End.»

However it is more appropriate to think of these two paragraphs as representing two separate mottos corresponding to two last popes. The reasons for this are as follows:
1) There is a period [.] at the end of the first sentence that makes a statement: «In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit.» It is not correct to read here: «…will sit Petrus Romanus». Similarly, every previous motto has a period at the end, i.e. every previous motto is a complete sentence.
2) Each of two last prophecies — «In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit.» and «Petrus Romanus, qui paſcet oues…» — makes a separate paragraph. Similarly, every motto makes a separate paragraph. The only difference is that the first 111 mottos are sufficiently short to fit in a single line. Each one of the two last mottos is longer than a single line, so the paragraph's feature is obvious here. «Lignum Vitae» uses a hanging indent, i.e. indents the rest of the text while leaving the first line in place.

The Last Day of the Last Pontificate

There exists another fascinating hypothesis. The phrase «Axle in the midst of a sign» (lat. «Axis in medietate ſigni»), which describes the pontificate of Sixtus V, can be interpreted as pointing out the exact middle of the reign of all the Popes described in the prophecy. In support of such a thesis we have the claim of Jean-Paul Cleber (Clébert, Jean-Paul, Prophéties de Nostradamus, 2003) which states that in the dictionaries of XVI century the Latin word for «sign» could also mean «prophecy». So, the phrase «Axis in medietate ſigni» could be translated as the «Axis of the middle of the prophecy».

Using this, let us attempt to compute the time of the end of the Prophecy of the Popes:

The pontificate of Celestine II, the first Pope of the prophecy, began on September 26, 1143. The papacy of Sixtus V began on April 24, 1585 and ended on August 27, 1590. The middle of his reign falls on December 25, 1587. We are going to consider this date as the «Axis of the middle of the prophecy». Between September 26, 1143 and December 25, 1587 there are 162251 days. If we add as many days to December 25, 1587, we arrive at Thursday, March 18, 2032.

Therefore, Thursday, March 18, 2032 must be the last day of the pontificate of the last Pope.

It is interesting to note that from September 26, 1143 to March 18, 2032 there will pass 888 years and 174 days. The gematria of the name Jesus, «Ιησους», makes up the number
888 = (Ι=10) + (η=8) + (σ=200) + (ο=70) + (υ=400) + (σ=200).
