    Just when you thought the 2012 hype was over...

    The saint's final prediction 'Petrus Romanus' is now being linked to leading contender Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson.

    According to Malachy's visions, 'Petrus Romanus' will be the 112th and final pope after whom it is stated that the 'the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people'.
    Although not part of official Catholic teaching, the Prophecy of the Popes is well known by Vatican officials and Catholic scholars.
    Naysayers have found ways to successfully link each of the phrases to a corresponding pope throughout the centuries.

    Pope John Paul II, for instance is associated with phrase No. 110, 'From the labour of the sun,' because he was both born and entombed on the day of a solar eclipse.
    And current pope Benedict XVI, is linked to phrase No 111, 'glory of the olive' due to the fact that some members of the monastic order founded by St. Benedict are known as Olivetans.

    The ominous phrase No 112, reads: 'In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman), 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.'
    There is a time to laugh and a time not to laugh, and this is not one of them.

    And this is why Peter Turkson has a 0.00% chance of becoming Pope. To preclude the crazy doomsdayers.

    The CTers will find a way to shoehorn Peter into whoever they pick though.
    The consistent factor of all of your dissatisfying relationships and failures is you.

    R.W. 09.21.10 I love you.

    I wonder if that will really influence the selection of the next pope. It'll be interesting though, and will likely get more play the closer it gets.
