“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.”
The destruction of Rome. With the safety of the Vatican, itself, being threatened, many are now paying close attention to this 12th century foretelling.
For example, Malachy’s description of Jon XXII, who held the papacy from 1316 to 1334, is "de sutore osseo,” which means “from the bony shoemaker.” This particular pope was, indeed, the son of a shoemaker, and held the family name of “Ossa,” meaning bone. In another close match, Malachy used the term "lilium et rosa" to describe Urban VII, whose family crest was composed of roses and lilies.
Malachy was summoned to Rome in 1139 by Pope Innocent II, and while there, he experienced a vision of future popes, which he then recorded as a series of short phrases. This transcript was then placed into the Vatican Secret Archives, where it lay until 1590.
The name Peter has an apocalyptic meaning to the church.....I do not think there would be any connection to Peter the Roman as this name indicates the Final Pope the last one...At this point the 7 Hills would destroyed and the Vatican would no longer exist...@Evil Minion do you think in some way the last popes names might not be Peter, but in some ways have a connection to the 'Peter the Roman'.
Say if next year all of a sudden and new pope needs to be found if that was the name of the person wouldnt their not be panic in the churches ranks given the prophecy?
