I truly believe that Pope Francis will die suddenly because of natural causes, like a heartattack or stroke in maybe a year.
He shakes things up, asks questions, wants to reform parts of the church and this doesn't sit well with some people in the vatican.

Agreed...but if nothing happens, will you accept that? And if something does, can you admit to the possibility that the prophesy guided it to happen and that is wasn't something preordained?
It's like in "The Matrix:" If the Oracle hadn't said anything, would Neo still have broken the vase?
Frustratingly, that will always be a philosophical question until time travel is a reality.

Ah, but did the Oracle know ahead of time? Did Saint Malachy know ahead of time?
