Will Pope resign in 2020? Would fulfill 900-year-old doomsday prophecy…”The Malachy Prophecy”

Source Express.com

The 83-year-old became head of the Catholic Church in 2013, following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI – a controversial move and the first of its kind in more than 500 years. 

However, a source close to the Pope claimed in 2013 that he would only serve for seven more years, stating he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor as resign in 2020, treading the path for an ancient prophecy to be fulfilled.

Journalist Austen Ivereigh is the former Director for Public Affairs of the previous Archbishop of Westminster, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and works closely with the Vatican.

He said in 2013: “I don’t think there’s ever been any doubt that he will resign in 2020.

“He made clear from the beginning that he regarded Pope Benedict’s (XVI) act as a prophetic act of great modesty and he would have absolutely no problem in doing the same.


“What was interesting was he said to Mexican television in 2014 that he believed that he would have a short papacy of about five years.

Now. given that he was elected in March 2013, then in 2017, he would have considered stepping down if nature hadn’t intervened. 

But, what I’m hearing now from people close to him is that he’s going to need seven years to achieve his five-year plan and that, of course, would mean staying on until 2020.”

The revelation will no doubt put some Christians on the edge of their seats, as it could apparently fulfil a 900-year-old prophecy made by 12th-century Archbishop Saint Malachy.

In 1139, Malachy went to Rome from Ireland to give an account of his affairs, when he reportedly received a strange vision about the future, including the names of 112 future Popes. 

His prediction concerning the 111th pope, Pope Benedict XVI, was “Gloria Olivae,” which means “the glory of the Olive”.

The Order of Saint Benedict is also known as the Olivetans, which many claim makes Malachy’s prophecies correct. 

However, his prediction for the 112th and current pope, Francis, is far more chilling.

It reads: “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 Pietro, or Peter, and was from Italy even though the family moved to Argentina.

However, Mr Ivereigh said that the Pope is not concerning himself with the length of his term.

He added: “He knows he is in the hands of God and so none of this is predictable.

You can look at it two ways, I mean politically you could say it is quite clever because he’s also signalling to those people who do want to see a change in the church, that there isn’t much time.

“He’s putting salt on the tail of everyone saying ‘we need to get this done,’ so I think you can take (his plan) both ways.

“Some of his opponents are waiting for him to go and they will be encouraged by this.

“At the age of 79, we are talking here about him stepping down in his Eighties, in the year 2020, there aren’t many men, frankly, who are capable physically, let alone mentally, of leading a massive institution with all the demands that the papacy brings.”

However, the prophecy has come under fire over the years.

It was first published by Benedictine monk Arnold de Wyon in 1595, attributing the claims to Malachy, but given the very accurate description of popes up to around 1590 and lack of accuracy for the popes that follow, historians generally conclude that the alleged prophecy is a fabrication written shortly before publication.

One theory to explain the prophecy’s creation put forward by 17th-century French priest Louis Moreri, is that it was spread by Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli in support of his own bid to become pope during the 1590 conclave to replace Urban VII. 

In the prophecy, the pope following Urban VII is given the description “Ex antiquate Urbis” or ”from the old city”, and Simoncelli was from Orvieto, which in Latin is Urbevetanum, old city. 

Mr Moreri and others proposed the prophecy was created in an unsuccessful attempt to demonstrate that Simoncelli was destined to be pope.

One thought on “Will Pope resign in 2020? Would fulfill 900-year-old doomsday prophecy…”The Malachy Prophecy”

  • The Malachy Prophecy of the Popes indicate that Pope Benedict XVI is the last true Pope. Who follows him is Peter the Roman but Pope Francis is not Peter the Roman. Peter the Roman is the pope that will replace Pope Benedict XVI after Pope Benedict XVI flees Rome and is martyred when outside of Rome.

    Peter the Roman will then lead what’s left of the Catholic Church which will be known as the Remnant Church. During this time, The Holy Eucharist, as we know it, will be outlawed, but the Remnant Church will continue to administer the Holy Mass, the Holy Eucharist and the other Holy Sacraments, but hidden, in secret, and underground. This will be the state of affairs for three and half years and wil be known as the Abomination of Isolation. After this period, shortly will occur the Second Coming.

    But who is Pope Francis? In the Book of Revelation or Apocalypse, two personalities appear – the false prophet and the anti-christ. These two will initiate the One World Church and the One World Government. The false prophet will seat in St. Peter’s Chair and will usher in the anti-christ.

    Pope Francis will not resign in 2020, because he is the false prophet.

    Pope Benedict announced his resignation on February 11, 2013.
    Exactly one year before, the following message was received on February 11, 2012:

    My poor Holy vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, will be ousted from the Holy See in Rome.
    Received February 11, 2012 @ 11:30 am

    My dearly beloved daughter the wars are escalating everywhere and very soon the hand of My Father will intervene to bring this evil to a halt.

    Fear not for the plans to save humanity are completed and it will not be long now for My Great Mercy which will be given to each of you.

    Never fear the works of the antichrist when you, dear children, have the power within you to weaken his grasp on the world through your prayers.

    Other world leaders will be killed soon and My poor Holy vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, will be ousted from the Holy See in Rome.

    Last year, my daughter, I told you of the plot within the corridors of the Vatican.

    A plan to destroy My Holy Vicar was devised in secret on the l7th March 2011 and this will come to fruition for it has been foretold.

    Spread My holy word to every corner of the world now and arrange for the printed versions of My messages to be spread to as many countries as possible.

    You are being guided so you must do what is best. Ask Me in prayer to send you help and it will be done.

    Your Jesus


    The false prophet will now take over the Seat in Rome
    On February 17, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

    My dearly beloved daughter, the schism within the Catholic Church, as foretold, will now be witnessed, for all the world to see. The departure of My dearly beloved Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, marks the beginning of the end. I have, through you, My chosen prophet, over the last two years, tried to prepare My Church on earth for this sad event.

    The Masonic elite have grasped control over My Church and they will wield the most wicked deceit upon Catholics. The Keys of Rome are now within My Hands having been passed over to Me by My Father. I will direct all of My followers so that the Truth can be sustained and that My Holy Word remains intact.

    The false prophet will now take over the Seat in Rome and My Word, just as it was in My Time on earth, will be treated as heresy.

    Make no mistake, for as the deceit is presented to the world, as if the new reign represents the Truth, you, My daughter, will suffer terribly in My Holy Name just as the prophets, which came before you.

    My followers must remain calm and pray for the salvation of all of My most sacred servants who will be caught up in this abomination. I call on them to respond as follows.

    Continue to follow My Teachings. Never waive from the Word of God. Remain loyal to your sacred duties and administer the Holy Sacraments as you have been instructed by Me.

    The Teachings of the Catholic Church, based on its formation by My Apostle Peter, remain infallible. Now this will change once the foundation is rocked by the changes to come.

    Shortly, you will no longer recognise My Church and you will feel very uncomfortable when you witness how My Holy Word will be tampered with.

    Your Jesus
