[quote=JohnL_Duncan]Apparently, the last secret was that St Peter’s Bones would be dragged through the streets by the last Pope (Anti-Christ).
I think the easiest way to refute this is to actually read what has been released on the third secret.
They were saying that there was a Saint (Moprphous?) (sp?), who saw all the Popes and their ‘coat of arms’ which explained who they were. Apparently the Vatican took this information and has never released it. :rolleyes:
For never releasing it, they’ve done a crummy job of containing it. You can find it pretty much anywhere. But they are wrong. The supposed list never says anything about a coat of arms or anything else. There is a list of short phrases supposedly attributable to each Pope. Some people who have tried to reconcile the list to each Pope have made a connection with what is in the Pope’s coat of arms. But the supposed ties are not limited to that. It may be country of origin, or nearly anything that somehow ties them to the phrase in question.
Anyway, this coat of arms says that the current Pope is the White pope, the next one will be the Black Pope and will only raign for around 6 months and they we will have the last Pope who will drag St Peter’s Bones around.
I don’t know where this comes from, but they are wrong. The phrase attributable to John Paul II is “De labore Solis.” As stated in the link: “(of the eclipse of the sun, or from the labour of the sun) Hist.:Karol Wojtyla was born on May 18, 1920 during a solar eclipse. He also comes from behind the former Iron Curtain. He might also be seen to be the fruit of the intercession of the Woman Clothed with the Sun labouring in Revelation 12 (because of his devotion to the Virgin Mary).of the eclipse of the sun, or from the labour of the sun)”
The next Pope has the phrase: “Gloria Olivae” This has brought speculation ranging from a Pope with darker skin, to a Pope who is of Jewish origin, to who knows what. In any case, the old “black pope” story isn’t from this list, but I think I’ve heard other similar nonsense elsewhere.
Finally, the last Pope from this list hardly seems to fit the bill of an anti-Christ figure. It is the most extensive phrase of all the Popes: “In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oues in multis tribulationibus: quibus transactis ciuitas septicollis diruetur, & Iudex tremêdus iudicabit populum suum. Finis.” From the link again, “(In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.)”
If someone is going to point to Malachy’s prophecy, to call the Pope the anti-Christ, they may want to actually figure out the Latin.
In any case, the whole thing is highly suspect. But even if not, then what they are saying about it is clearly wrong.
