Breaking news just in that Pope Benedict XVI has resigned, saying he is too old to continue.
What does this have to do with the end of the world, you ask? Back in 1139, Irish Saint Malachy (known as a great prophet) had a vision showing him all the Popes from then until the end of time. According to the prophecy, there would only be two remaining Popes after John Paul II …. which means that there will only be one more Pope to follow Benedict XVI.
According to the prophecy, the final Pope will be Peter the Roman:
“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus, 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.”
