I've vaguely remember a prediction (also been posted here on ATS). Wasn't it something like the pope to follow up Benedictus will be the last pope
of the Vatican? After which it crumbles into dust or we all get ruled by the Anti-Christ or something like that? I hear a church bell tolling
The next Pope is the one called ‘Peter the Roman’. But this does not imply that the next Pope will be called ‘Peter II’. No Pope has ever
dared to take the name of the first Pope, the Rock chosen directly by Christ. Instead, the expression ‘Peter the Roman’ — like all the other
expressions used by St. Malachy to describe future Popes — refers to his Pontificate.
This next Pope will emphasize the supremacy of the Roman Catholic Faith over all other religions, and the authority of the Roman Pontiff over the one
true Church. He will rebuke apostasy, heresy, and schism. He will drive unrepentant heretics from the Church. He will show that the Roman Pontiffs who
succeeded Peter have the same full authority as Peter. Thus, he will deserve the name ‘Peter the Roman’.
But he will take the name Pope Pius XIII. For Pope Saint Pius X predicted that this would be his name:
“Pope Pius X saw a vision of a successor of his, who had the same name (i.e. Pius), fleeing Rome over the dead bodies of members of the clergy.
According to my interpretation of Sacred Scripture, the next Pope, i.e. Peter the Roman, (i.e. the pope after Pope Benedict XVI) will flee Vatican
City and Rome during World War 3; many members of the clergy will be killed during that time period. When he flees, the city will be half in ruins,
due to the civil disorder, violence, and rioting that occurs during the war. He will escape Rome, but he will soon be captured and blinded, and he
will die in a prison in Iraq with no one to rescue him. I believe that Peter the Roman (Cardinal Arinze/Pope Pius XIII) is the Pope foreseen by Pope
Pius X.” (Conte, The First Part of the Tribulation, p. 51).
The next Pope will be Pope Pius XIII, and he will reign at the start of the tribulation, and he will die a martyr. But which man will be this next
Pope? One of the Brides of the Most Blessed Trinity had a vision of Cardinal Arinze with Pope’s hat on his head:
Claire Rose: “During this Holy Mass I had two visions. The first I saw Cardinal Francis Arinze` with the Pope’s Hat on his head. The tall hat.
He was smiling! The second vision, I saw Mother Theresa of Calcutta. She, too, was smiling. Later as we were having lunch I was telling the two
priests of my two visions. Fr. Jude began to smile. I was very surprised to learn that he knew both Cardinal Arinze and Mother Theresa! Only those who
were present were told this.”
In my view I don't know if it will be Cardinal Francis Arinze but the current pope will resign before april this year because of his health problems.
