Scandal in the Making
If the present Roman Catholic sexual abuse allegations against priests in the United States and coverup by the Bishops and Archbishops have a specific purpose, it will be to undermine and probably topple Pope Francis I.
Since his election to the post in 2013, he has upset the traditional factions within the Roman Catholic Church.
He has ‘allowed’ homosexuals to receive the sacrament of Eucharist. He is trying to accommodate a ‘grass roots’ change of Catholic beliefs, and is viewed by the faithful as a humble man.
Everything points to an all-out internal conflict.
St. Malachy’s Prophecy
Would it surprise you to learn that there is a conspiracy theory that suggests that Francis will be the final Pontiff? It seems that so many people are hoping for the End of Times, especially in the United States.
But is it true, or is this just wishful thinking?
‘The prophecies of the Irish Saint Malachy, the 12th-century bishop of Armagh, have thrilled and dismayed readers for centuries. He has stated there would be only one more pope after Benedict, and during his reign comes the end of the world. So Francis could be the last.
‘The prediction in full is: “In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.”
‘The father of the current pope was Peter, or Pietro, and was from Italy even though the family moved to Argentina.
‘In 1139, then Archbishop Malachy went to Rome from Ireland to give an account of his affairs. While there he received a strange vision about the future that included the name of every pope, 112 in all from his time, who would rule until the end of time. We are now at the last prophecy.’ (From Irish Central)
It is obvious that both the Roman Catholic Church hierarchy and Pope Francis cannot succeed: either Francis will be forced to resign, or the Church will have to change forever. Is this the end? Wait and see.
