The Prophecy of the Popes, attributed to Saint Malachy, 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 current pope Benedict XVI's successor, a pope described in the prophecy as "Peter the Roman", whose pontificate will end in the destruction of the city of Rome.

Note: Although the Prophecy of the Popes according to St. Malachy has never been sanctionedd by the Church, it makes for interesting reading.  Let us give thanks for all that our Holy Father Benedict XVI has done for the Church, and let us pray for his successor.

Peace be with you!
