Malachi — the famous Catholic saint. He was born in 1094 in Ireland, in Ulster. From his earliest years, he believed in God, spending all his free time for prayers. 06 this phenomenal Mohl all the time a child soon found out, and when he got older, he was appointed a deacon, after a while he was ordained a priest, a missionary, drawing people to the Christian faith. He was loved by all, came to him to receive his blessing.
Pope Innocent II called him to the audience and had a guest unprecedented honor. In the presence of the Cardinals, he put on his miter and Malachi said, it would seem strange words: "Let every fall prostrate before him: This man revealed to us by God!"
According to the chronicles, the saint Malachy all nights spent in the Vatican Library, he wrote a strange mysterious book. When Malachi died, the manuscript of this book for a long time wandered from one monastery to another, and only at the end of the XVI century, after four and a half centuries after his death, the document was found, and everyone knew about it. Work was called "Prediction of the Roman popes."
It was, in fact, a directory, which listed 112 clerics who hold or will hold more holy Pope.
Directory opened a contemporary of St. Malachi, Celestine II. He remained on the throne for long, less than six months. Followed by 111 pontiffs, and each is given in the form of aphorisms characteristic in Latin. Malachi did not name names, he focuses on the qualities of Dad and talk about what each of them brings to the mortal world.
He points out the exact dates of the Board Dad, Here's the end of the list:
103. Paul VI (1963-1978). Flower blossoms.
109. John Paul I (1978-1978). Of the half moon.
110. John Paul II (1978-2005). (Note: the year of the death of the Pope on the list of Malachi is not specified).
111. The next Pope. The triumph of the olive tree.
112. The last Pope. Peter and Peter the Roman Romanov.
Just about the last Pope says this: "In the time of the place of the Holy Roman Church will hold Pyotr Romanov, who will feed the weak-willed, making a lot of disasters. During this time, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the monstrous Judge will judge the people. End"
Researchers recognize the Malachi quite precise characteristics given by them of Dad. Virtually all (much, at least) the same.
Example: on 101 Pope Leo XIII referred to as "the light of heaven" — and in fact, on its arms wore a comet. Pope Urban VIII, the ruling in the first half of the XVII century, Malachi gives the nickname "Lily and the Rose." The researchers interpret this as: reconciliation of Protestant England (rose) with Catholic France (Lily) by the marriage of King Charles II Stuart and Marie Antoinette, daughter of Henry IX. A very interesting feature of Pope Pius VII, whose pontificate coincided with the reign of Napoleon, the Pope called this Stolen Eagle. Under the symbol of the eagle meant the French Emperor, he put the Pope in prison, from which he was able to leave only after the overthrow of the monarchy. After this, he again came to the Holy See.
Pope Benoit XV led the Church from 1914 to 1922. His reign in Malachi is under the sign of "the annihilation of Christians." This is a life-affirming, as in the First World War killed millions of believers.
But the main Malachi's treatise
not only that the biography of the same Dad, and an unexpected ending. According to the saint, the institution of the papacy fate prepared a tragic ending, and, according to the saint, only 112 popes from Celestine II, will sit on the throne, then aborted the mission of the papacy, holy Rome will fall and there will come the Apocalypse.
Pope John Paul II died in 2005. This dad, beloved, and Malachi goes under the motto "From the works of the Sun", the motto is interpreted in different ways, some people say that it is so called because he was born during a total solar eclipse, others note the increased activity of the Sun during the accession Pope on the throne.
About the current Pope, Benedict XVI, Malachi speaks as "the glory of the olive." Sometimes as a "triumph of the world." Olive tree — a symbol of the world, perhaps, with the long-awaited peace to the Pope? And perhaps, for the welfare of the whole earth? Malachi
did not say how many will rule this Pope, but it goes further warns that the last pope will be Peter or Peter Roman Romanov, with which the world is waiting for the arrival of a disaster.
Malachi clearly indicates that as soon as the throne will take the 112th Peter Roman or Peter II (the first was the apostle Peter, the disciple of Christ, who established Institute Dad, since no one took the name), come to an end. What Malachi said about the last Pope, indicates the end of the world, and the symbolism chosen prophet, like "Revelation" John. Some researchers believe that it is nothing more than a warning that the institution of the papacy itself, sooner or later run out. Perhaps we are talking about the global formation of the Church.
Malachi's prophecy in common with Nostradamus. He, in particular, also says that with the arrival of the 112th Pope "common blood will flood the earth, people will live with closed mouths and come unpredictable." Some scholars believe that Nostradamus was familiar with the prophecies of Malachi. That's exactly what Malachi spoke of the reign of the last two popes: "The board of the 111th pope will not be long," but this time it will be noted that when it "may come a long-awaited peace between peoples and prosperity throughout the world. Joy, however, will be short-lived ".
112th Pope will be the last. He will reign during the "monstrous judges"; presumably, is meant here Antichrist, which he had called the patriarch Jacob.
All studies of prophecy was in tune with the other saints prophecy of Malachi, and prophecies of the Bible with his prophecies have much in common. Even Jesus Christ himself said that before the end will come and reign antichrist in the world must be preached the gospel of the kingdom, and this time will be short-lived. "And this gospel shall be preached in all the world of the Kingdom as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14).
Many Fathers prophesied the coming of the Antichrist, here is a quote from the Greek word: "The last time was not yet ripe, and it is a mistake to think that we are at the threshold of the coming of the Antichrist, because it remains to be one and the last flowering of Orthodoxy, this time around the world. it happens after a terrible war in which the die is not the half, not two-thirds of humanity, and that will stop the voice from heaven.
