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.
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."
The speculation above seems at least worthy of consideration given:
--Pope Benedict XVI's recent consistory at the Vatican (on 3-24-06) and the expectation that the new pontiff also will hold more consistories in the future.
--The expectation that Pope Benedict is about to streamline the Roman Curia (including forcing Angelo Sodano, the Vatican's Secretary of State and Dean of the College of Cardinals, to retire sometime in April).
--The fact that in 2,000 years no newly-elected Pope has ever had the nerve to take the name of Peter (making it unlikely that there will ever be a Pope Peter II but more likely that Peter the Roman will be a non-Pope who acts as caretaker of the Church).
--Pope Benedict's desire to reach out to the Muslim world.
--The recent bombing by Muslim extremists of a 1,200-year-old mosque's dome in Iraq.
