There is a very intriguing prophecy made by a Jesuit priest, St. Malachy, back somewhere around 1500. The prophecy listed all the popes from his time to the present. With each pope he gave a brief poetic description of some attribute or origin or hint of something about that pope. With the final pope, Peter the Roman, he gave a prophecy that he would reign in the midst of great tribulations, and during his reign Rome would be destroyed. We are on the next to the final pope now, and the predictions up to now have been remarkably accurate. Rumor has it that the present pope, Benedict XVI is set to retire sometime this year.
It truly looks like something is going on and it taste supernatural to the spiritual palate.
