About the Author

Mr. Peter Bander was a Senior Lecturer in Religious Education, as well as Head of the Department of Religious Education, at the Cambridge Institute of Education. The Prophecies of Malachy, which he specifically wrote an introduction and commentary for, is an instructive and satisfying work first published in 1969 by Colin Smythe Limited, England. The original title was The Prophecies of St. Malachy and St. Columbkille, which was eventually altered in 1970. Father Bander's work was also printed by TAN in 1973.

Format: Paperback
_The Prophecies of St. Malachy_ by Peter Bander republished by TAN Books consists of comments on the saint's life and then his prophecies regarding the future popes from the twelfth century till the end of time. Saint Malachy of Armagh, Ireland was an eleventh century bishop and saint who died in the hands of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux and who foretold the day and hour of his own death. According to legend, Saint Malachy had a series of visions while visiting Rome which consisted of the prophecies regarding all future popes till the end of time. These prophecies consist of brief Latin descriptions of all the popes, which have born an uncanny resemblance to various aspects of each subsequent pope's reign. Many have scoffed at these prophecies, and some regard them to be forgeries, however they continue to hold up to scrutiny even into these modern times. Malachy predicted 112 popes ahead of his time until the destruction of the Church of Rome and the end of the world. These predictions are especially relevant to these modern times because depending on how the prophecies are interpreted, it may be that we are living near the end of days. According to the prophecies, the recently deceased Pope John Paul II was "De Labore Solis", and the soon to be elected future pope will be "Gloria Olivae". This pope will be followed by the last pope "Petrus Romanus". Malachy has written "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock among many tribulations; after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people." Some have interpreted this to mean that following Pope John Paul II there are only two popes left.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
The short, cryptic prophecies of
St. Malachy, the Primate of Ireland,
made circa 1140 while on a visit at Rome,
about each Pope from his time until the End of Time
--all based on visions he had at the time.
From what we know of recent Popes,
these prophecies are accurate,
based on interior evidence alone.
What is so very sobering is
the fact that there are only 2 Popes left
after Pope John Paul II.

Is Monsignor Pietro Parolin, an official with the Vatican's Roman Curia, destined to be Saint Malachy's prophesied "Petrus Romanus"?

The following might present what is to be the future fulfillment of St. Malachy's prophecy concerning "Peter the Roman."

It is lifted from [...] ...

"Because no number is assigned to Petrus Romanus (Malachy's 112th "pope"), it is possible that (Peter the Roman) may take on the role of the Pope without putting on the robe of the Pope. Under this possible scenario, a catastrophe at the Vatican (perhaps a terrorist attack) could wipe out the top leadership of the Church during either a consistory or a conclave of the College of Cardinals. As a result, with no viable College surviving to elect a new pontiff, this particular scenario would have a surviving official of the Roman Curia succeeding to the top leadership of the Church but not as Pope. Since he would not rise to the Papacy itself but instead would become, in effect, the top caretaker of the Church, he would not need to assume a new papal name such as Peter; thus he would keep the name he has had since his birth in Italy, and that name already would be Peter (or, in Italian, Pietro). Currently (that is, as of March 2006) there is only one such candidate for Petrus Romanus (or Peter the Roman) within the Roman Curia. His name is Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Under-Secretary of State for Relations with States, appointed by Pope John Paul II in 2002 to serve under Archbishop Giovanni Lajolo. A native of Schiavon, Italy, Monsignor Parolin was born in January 1955.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
St. Malachy predicts that the next pope will be the last one. Scholars say that Malachy never said that there would be no other popes between Benedict and the last pope. Benedict's resignation could cast some doubt over who is the next pope. Scholars could say that the next pope can't be elected until Benedict dies, even though he resigned. Other scholars say that the resignation is official and that the next pope will be elected while Cardinal Ratzinger is still alive. The scholars who believe that the election must wait untill Benedict (Ratzinger) dies will say that any person elected now would not be a valid pope, but would be an anti pope. He would still be an anti pope after Benedict dies. Should an election be held when Benedict dies, even if the anti pope is still alive? Pope Benedict knows of St. Malachy's prophecies. My nephew is a priest and was recently studying in Rome for his Ph. D. He told me that Benedict said that he is aware of St. Malachy's prophecies, but he didn't choose the name Benedict to make the "Glory of the Olive" (St. Benedict) prophecy concerning the present pope come true. Is it a coincidence that his resignation could cast doubt over the fulfillment of the "Peter the Roman" prophecy? At least this would prolong the end of the world!
The book is well written and explores many implications and possibilities regarding the prophecies.
