Prophecies of St. Malachy

Of 111 prophecies made by St. Malachy about the popes, these are some of the more interesting and compelling ones.

Celestine II reigned from 1143 to 1144. The prophecy attributed to him by St. Malachy was, “Ex castro Tyberis” – “from the castle on the Tiber”. Celestine II was born in Citta di Castello, Toscany, on the shores of the Tiber.

Eugene II reigned from 1145 to 1153, and his attribution was “ex magnitudine montis”, meaning “from the greatness of the mount”. Eugene II was born at Grammont castle. His family name was Montemagno.

John XXII reigned from 1316 to 1334. “De sutore Osseo”, meaning, “From the cobbler of Osseo.” John XXII’s family-name is Ossa. He was the son of a shoemaker.

Callistus III, who reigned from 1455 to 1458, was prophecized as “Bos pascens” by St. Malachy. “Bos pascens” means “grazing ox”. Interestingly, Callistus III’s coat of arms featured a golden, grazing ox.

Clement IX, reigning from 1667 to 1669 was prophecized as “Sydus Olorum” – “Constellation of Swans.” When Clement IX was elected into the papacy, he was the occupant of the Chamber of Swans at the Vatican.

John XXIII is perhaps one of the most interesting cases of St. Malachy’s prediction. He served as Pope from 1958 to 1963, and his motto was “Pastor et Nauta”, meaning “pastor and marine”. Before he was elected Pope, he was the patriarch of Venice. Venice is, of course, a marine city. Surely this is more than a coincidence?

John Paul I, serving only 1978 as Pope, “De medietate Lunae” : “From the midst of the moon”. Albino Luciani, John Paul I, was born in Canale d’Ogardo, a diocese of Belluno (Belluno meaning “beautiful moon”.) He was elected Pope on August the 26th, and his reign lasted about a month. Interestingly, from half-moon to the next half-moon.

John Paul II, the most recently deceased Pope, was perhaps one of the most powerful and influential ever. “De labore Solis”, “Of the Labor of the Sun.” Karol Wojtyla was born May 18th, 1920 – during a solar eclipse. There was also a solar eclipse on April 8th, 2005, the day of his funeral. He reigned from 1978 to 2005.

Benedict XVI, the current pope, whose reign began after John Paul II’s passing, was foreseen as “Gloria Olivae”, “Glory of the Olive.” It is unclear as of yet what this means exactly, though there is speculation. Benedict the XVI, supposedly, will be either the last or second to last true Pope before a great anti-Pope, said to be the Devil-incarnate, the Antichrist, will seize the papacy. This, according to Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 13 and 17:10-18.

There is not much time left before we find out whether or not St. Malachy’s apocalyptic predictions hold true. His other predictions have held water, despite large controversy and criticism, some of which even coming from the Church itself.

Once Benedict XVI leaves the papacy, we may soon be staring the Antichrist in the face.
