Dominant Social Theme: There is nothing to priestly prophecies regarding the pope and the Illuminati doesn’t exist.

Free-Market Analysis: According to various prophecies, the next pope may be the last one and usher in the era of the anti-Christ. That pope is to be known as Peter the Roman.

The main set of prophecies regarding papal succession is the Prophecy of Popes, 112 short predictions in Latin that supposedly explain the history of popes to come, beginning with Pope Celestine II.

Benedictine Arnold de Wyon in 1595 was the author of the Prophecy of Popes but his writing claims that Saint Malachy, a 12th-century Archbishop of Armagh was the actual composer.

The Prophecy is very accurate before 1590 but far less accurate afterward, leading some to decide that the Prophecies were composed and released around that time period.

Nontheless, the Prophecy of Popes has continued to occupy the public mind and the current pope, Benedict XVI, is seen as the second-to-last pope. The list finishes with a pope know only as “Peter the Roman.” His pontificate will usher in the destruction of the city of Rome and the Apocalypse.

For this reason alone, if not for any other, one would assume Church elders would at least try to make sure that the new pope was something other than Peter. No such luck. One of the leading contenders is Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana, who would be the Church’s first black pope.

Of course, as we learn from the UK Telegraph “Given the highly secretive nature of the conclave of the College of Cardinals that chooses popes, predicting the decision is an uncertain business.”

But could a “Peter” really be picked? Here’s some more from the article:

… The early bookmaker’s favourite, Cardinal Turkson is currently president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. He is regarded as a very able communicator, and given that Pope Benedict’s age was the key factor in his decision to retire, Cardinal Turkson’s relative young age of 64 could count in his favour.
