I know you guys like Conspiracies...so here we go
There was a Saint who had a vision during the reign of Pope Celestine II, that he saw all the future Pontificates, and he wrote a little Stanza for each Pope following Celestine. These Little Stanzas are supposed to be cryptic clues to the identities of the Popes. He wrote One Hundred and Twelve Little Stanzas
One is supposed to believe that the Roman Catholic Church...and one presumes also therefore the World, would cease after the One Hundred and Twelfth Pope following Celestine inclusively. They are in some ways VERY accurate, more accurate then a lot of prophetic nonsense ive seen.
Some would say it could be predicting the apokolypse, some just think its predicting the Fall of the Roman Papacy. but you might like to know Benedict was Number One Hundred and Eleven.
That means this should be the final conclave and should ellect the last Pope. So what does the Stanza say:
In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit.
Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves in multis tribulationibus, quibus transactis civitas septicollis diruetur, & judex tremedus judicabit populum suum. Finis
It says that the Pontificate will be marked by Extreme Persecution, and multiple Tribulations. It says following the Pontificate, Rome will be in ruins, and "Judex Tremendus" a Really Big Judge, will have his say over the population....it should be noted in Latin Literature, the Returning Christ is Known as "Rex Celestis" or "Rex Tremendae" Meaning King of the Heavens, or some big powerful King...its not a direct implication....It could be a reference to EITHER Christ, OR The Devil.
Then there is the Name of the Last Pope given as "Petrus Romanus" Peter of Rome...again, as they are all apostolic decendents of Peter...they are ALL Petrus Romanus...but people are looking into it as a direct clue of the background of the individual...Petrus Romanus, therefore not indicative of the Office, but the specific person within the Office.
It might suprise you to know that there is a Roman in Conclave called Peter. That would be our dear friend, the Camerlengo himself...Cardinal Bertone, his middle name is Peter.
But there is an emphasis on trying to Ellect a Pope either from Latin America, or Africa...and the leading Africans name is Peter...his middle name is apparently the same name as some bygone well known Roman Road...therefore it could be him.
