More than 850 years ago, St. Malachy predicted the names of all future popes with uncanny accuracy. Now, in 2012 there is only one more future pope on his list to be elected…

St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes is a list of 112 short phrases in Latin. They purport to describe each of the Roman Catholic popes (along with a few anti-popes), beginning with Pope Celestine II (elected in 1143) and concluding with the successor of current pope Benedict XVI, a pope described in the prophecy as “Peter the Roman”, whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.
