Pope Benedict XVI officially resigned his papacy today, February 28th, 2013 @ 2:00 PM EST. At this point in time, the Roman Catholic Church does not have a pope but there is an acting pope, technically speaking that is.
Before I get into that though, let’s talk about who “Peter the Roman” is, especially since most of us have never heard of him.
During the 12th century there was an Irish Bishop known as Malachy (now Saint Malachy) who, according to historical documents, had a dream or more accurately, a vision about the Catholic Church. In his vision, he saw the final 112 popes that would head the Church starting with Celestine II, in 1143.
According to historical accounts, which by the way the Church considered forgeries, the 111th pope was referred to in the prophecy as “Gloria Olivae” which means the “glory of the olive.” If the Malachy prophecy is true then the 111th pope was most likely Pope Benedict XVI. This is because the order of Saint Benedict was commonly referred to as the Olivetans.
Now, just so you are aware, even though the Catholic Church considered Malachy’s writings to be forgeries, it is rumored that the Church took them very seriously. So much so that it was rumored that in 1958, the Conclave would not elect Pope John Paul XXIII until they first hired a boat, filled it with sheep, and sailed it up and down the Tiber River. This was in keeping with the Malachy prophecy that stated the next pope would “pastor et nautor” which means “a pastor and a sailor.”
If Pope Benedict XVI was the 111th pope then there would only be one more pope to fill the papacy and that pope is to be called “Petrus Romanus” or “Peter the Roman.” The last pope would signal the end of the Roman Catholic Church and ultimately the end of the world.
This is where things get very interesting. The prophecy states the last POPE will be Peter the Roman. In order to be a pope, the Conclave must first elect a pope. The election of a new pope is expected to take place within the next three weeks or so.
No one knows for sure who is on the list of potential candidates for the papacy but some say that list contains at least three cardinals with “Peter” in their name. However, one of those cardinals stands out because he is most definitely Peter the Roman. His name? Cardinal Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertone.
Bertone was born in the Romano Canavese of the Italian Piedmont. That makes him Roman and his given name is Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertone. Pietro is Italian for Peter. So there you have it, Peter the Roman!
Now hold onto your hats people because you’re in for a BIG surprise!! Stay with me now and allow me to explain:
When a pope resigns or dies, there is a period of time where the Church is without a pope. And during this time, the Camerlengo (Italian for Chamberlain) of the Roman Catholic Church becomes the temporary administrator of the Holy See.
The Holy See is the episcopal jurisdiction of the Catholic Church which basically means the central government of the Roman Catholic Church. That means that the Camerlengo is the equivalent of a prime minister and during sede vacante (Latin for vacant seat, which refers to when the papal seat is vacant), the Camerlengo is by all intents and purposes, the acting pope and head of state for the Roman Catholic Church.
As a former Catholic, I realize that using the term “acting pope” isn’t a very true statement because a devout Catholic will tell you that the Congress of Cardinals holds the ruling power during a vacancy in the papal seat, albeit limited power.
The Camerlengo, on the other hand, is technically in charge until a new pope is elected. This is because the Camerlengo is also the head of state for the church and is charged with administering all of the Church’s properties and revenues.
And here’s the kicker:
The current Cardinal Camerlengo is Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertone, as in the cardinal we just discussed above as being a candidate for the papacy! As of today, February 28th, 2013 at 2:00 PM EST, Cardinal Camerlengo Bertone is the temporary administrator of the Holy See and head of state for the Church.
As I said above, the Camerlengo is pretty much in charge until a new pope is elected which makes him the acting pope!
Now, if you recall above, Cardinal Camerlengo Bertone could be considered “Peter the Roman” because he was born and raised Roman and his given name, Tarcisio Pietro Evasio Bertrone, contains the name Peter. And he’s currently in charge of the Catholic Church people!!
So, does this mean Malachy’s prophecy has been fulfilled??
Well I don’t know if the “acting pope” qualifies as a pope as Malachy envisioned it but it sure does give you something very big to think about for the next few weeks until a new pope is elected – assuming the Church doesn’t fall apart before then.
Of course the opponents of the prophecy’s state that they were mere forgeries perpetrated in the 16th century by supporters of Cardinal Girolamo Simoncelli who was a candidate to become the next pope in 1590. Additionally, the accuracy of the list after 1590 is not quite that great unless you try to make the connection between the prophecy and the actual list of popes after that time.
This is like a real life “Divinci Code” coming true (the Tom Hanks movie)!
But decide for yourself. In my opinion, Malachy’s prophecy has been fulfilled because Peter the Roman is currently at the helm of the Catholic Church even though he’s not technically the pope….yet.
The last week has been quite a busy one in the world of news. But two stories stand out the most and that’s what we’ll be talking about here.
The first news story – the Truman carrier battle group was set to deploy to the Gulf on February 8th. However, the deployment was cancelled at the last minute, supposedly because of budget reasons.
Here’s what we know for fact – the 5,000 + sailors of the Truman carrier were packed and ready to go on their deployment to the Gulf. This means that the ship was fully ready for deployment and was full of all the necessary supplies for this deployment.
For whatever reason (budget cuts?), the deployment was cancelled at the last minute. In addition, in a rare appearance, the commander of the carrier strike group, held a press conference to reiterate the reasons for cancelling the deployment. This act in itself doesn’t sit well with me personally because having an admiral speak to reaffirm what the Secretary of Defense has already stated only serves to support the idea that this is a cover-up and they are only attempting to convince you otherwise by having an admiral publicly speak about it.
I served in the US Armed Forces and can tell you that deployments that are planned for do not typically get cancelled a few days prior to the actual deployment. It takes tons of resources and man hours to get ready for a deployment of this magnitude and to cancel at the last minute is questionable at best.
Now, we have a fully equipped carrier group that is ready to deploy at a moment’s notice with no orders except to wait in dock. The question is, why? Why would the Secretary of Defense want a carrier to be at the ready while at home when he made it clear it would not be deploying overseas?
So what’s the number one reason from a military perspective? To be militarily ready to respond to a domestic crisis here at home. That, of course, only poses more questions like what kind of crisis could occur here at home that would require a carrier battle group to be at the ready? Well, it would obviously have to be a big crisis if a carrier battle group stands in the ready to respond.
Okay, let’s talk about the Pope’s resignation. Two things that stand out about his resignation: first, resignations from the papal throne does NOT occur typically and hasn’t done so in almost 600 years and two, it came as a complete surprise to most in the Catholic church, including the head of the US arch diocese, Cardinal Dolan.
What would possess the Pope to resign his position in the Church and do so abruptly? Sure, you could buy the cover story that it’s his health but if history has told us anything it’s that the Pope serves his post even when in bad health. Most people know that the Pope typically serves until his death. But for whatever reason, this Pope is resigning because of his health? It just doesn’t add up.
When you add the Pope’s resignation to the cancelled Truman deployment, you have a much more interesting story to talk about and I’m sure mainstream media will fail to make a connection because doing so would only shed light on what’s really going on behind the scenes.
So what’s going on behind the scenes that would cause the US to cancel a major military deployment and would cause the leader of the largest religion to resign his post? Well, I can’t be certain but I can say that it’s going to be big. Big enough to cause the Pope to flee his post and big enough to force the US to have one of its largest military units at the ready, at home!
I would say at this point to hold on because it’s clear that something big is about to break and it’s gonna be one hell of a ride. This could be the moment we have all been waiting for and if it is, these two events make a whole lot of more sense than their supposed cover stories ever could.
