Default Re: Eclipse on the day of his funeral

Re #7, St. Malachy spoke of the "labor of the sun." To be born and buried on the day of an eclipse sounds about right to me. As Michael Brown opines on Spirit Daily, he was from Poland, east of Rome as is the sun. Let's not forget he added the Luminous Mysteries, rather evocative of sunshine, he was associated with Our Lady of Fatima, which was highlighted by a miracle of the sun.
Maybe St. Malachy's propecies are phonies, but then again, maybe not...
I'll be looking with interest for an olive connections to the next pope.

It would be an incredible thing to actually live in the End Times. But I'm not going to count on it. So far, every single prophecy about the end of the world has had a 100% failure rate. And Christ Himself said that on one knows the hour that it will come.

I didn't say anything about the end of the world. Even if Malachy is right and the prophecies are really his, there can be many interpretations. I just think it is an item of interest.

What one's interpretation is is up to each individual. I prefer the older and more original commentaries on it and those that want to see "signs" with the eclipse are certainly well with their choice to do so. And so I say no.

Technically, it's not a partial solar eclipse but a "hybrid" one--a combination of the annular type and total type, according to astronomers. A "hybrid" type is a rare type, these sources say. It will begin as an annular type--almost obscuring all of the sun--then become total at some point and then back to annular again until it ends.

Peace, so be it.

Sounds a lot like what Jesus prophesied in the Gospel of Matthew about how the sun will be darkened.
