Nostradamus, Malachy & Fatima:
Rome Attacked & Destroyed?

   They are the three most frightening prophecies ever recorded on the fate of Rome and its papacy. The Bible tells us that God will always warn us before He delivers one of His judgements upon us. The infamous St. Malachy prophecy on the fate of Pope Francis is now all over the Internet because it predicts that the pope who now occupies the papacy will witness the destruction of Rome. Most people don't know however that there are a number of other prophecies that also predict the ruin of Rome. Prophecies can be verified by the fact that they are issued from more than one source. It is a fact that the Third Secret of Fatima and a Nostradamus Quatrain also describe Rome in ruins. These three famous prophecies are listed below:



  THE FIRST PROPHECY comes from an Irish Catholic saint who was the Archbishop of Armagh in the 12th century. His prophecy was long ago officially approved by the Catholic Church and stored in the Vatican archives, in spite of the fact that it predicted the future destruction of Rome. St. Malachy's prophecy lists 112 future popes who would rule Rome from the papacy of Celestine II in 1143 A.D. until the final papacy of "Petrus Romanus" (ITALIAN: Pietro de Romano), our present pope. Pope Francis I chose to name himself after St. Francis "de Pietro" of Assisi, and his family came out of the town of "Romano" in northern Italy. Followers of St. Malachy say that Pope Francis will be the pope who will witness the destruction of the city of Rome. The final St. Malachy verse is printed below:




    "During a final persecution of the
Roman Church sits Petrus Romanus,
who will feed his flock through many
tribulations. This accomplished, the
seven-hilled city (Rome) will be
destroyed, and the Dreadful Judge
will judge His people."


                         Saint Malachy



  THE SECOND PROPHECY comes from the prophet Nostradamus who also records a prophecy that describes Rome's ruin. Nostradamus Quatrain (4-line poem) #10-65 from his famous book the "Centuries," suggests the pope will release a statement that will inflame Rome's enemies, and result in the "ruin" of the city. Rome's buildings will not be damaged, only its occupants and idols will be destroyed. The prophecy, including the original Old French version written by Nostradamus, is printed below. If you wish to look up the words of the original Old French poem, an Old French dictionary is included:




Oh vast Rome, thy ruin approches.
Ou vaste Romme, ta ruyne s'approche,
Not of thy walls, but of thy blood and substance;

Non de tes murs, de ton sang substance;
The bite of thine utterings will be such a horrible snip,

L'aspre lettres fera si horrible coche,
The point of the blade thrust all the way to the handle.

Fer poinctu mis a tous jusques au manche.


                         Michel de Nostredame





  THE THIRD PROPHECY also comes out of the Catholic Church and was also approved by Catholic Church officials. This vision, received by three young shepherd children in 1917 in the town of Fatima, Portugal, includes a description of a future pope who walks through Rome witnessing the city in ruins and littered with corpses. The Third Fatima prophecy describes soldiers marching the Pope and others up a steep hill where the pontiff kneels at the foot of a big cross and is then executed by this group of soldiers who have apparently invaded the city. Fatima's Third Secret is printed below:




   "And we saw an immense light that
is God, something similar to how
people look in a mirror when they
pass in front of it, a bishop dressed
in white (we had the impression it
was the holy father) other bishops,
priests, men and women religious,
going up a steep hill, at the top of
which was a big cross with a rough
hewn trunk, like a cork tree with the
bark. Before reaching there, the Holy
father passed through a big city half
in ruins. Half trembling, in halting
steps afflicted by pain and sorrow, he
prayed for the souls of the corpses
he passed along the way. Having
reached the top of the hill, on his
knees at the foot of the big cross,
he was killed by a group of soldiers
who shot bullets at him..."


                 Sister Lucia dos Santos



   In the early 1800s the Catholic Church and its papacy were both feared and hated by most Americans. The colonists had come to America to escape the horrors of the Catholic Inquisitions taking place in Europe. In 1844 Reverend William Miller predicted that a "Second Coming" of Christ would occur at midnight on October 22nd, and that his many followers would be Raptured up to heaven just before a destruction of Rome and its papacy. Miller was wrong on the date of his Rapture, but his Bible prophecy on the end of Rome was supported by St. Malachy O'Morgair's Prophecy of the Popes and Nostradamus Quatrain #10-65 that also spoke of a coming destruction of Rome.

   The later 1917 Third Prophecy of Fatima represented one more vision of a coming destruction for Rome. A final warning came in the form of the Garabandal visions of 1961 and 1965, warning that the Church will suffer the "wrath of God" because "Cardinals, Bishops and priests are following the path of perdition, and taking the souls of others along with them (the 1960s sex abuse scandal)." It's truly amazing that in spite of these warnings, and the fact that three of these warnings actually came from the Catholic Church itself, Catholic officials are still ignoring all these warnings on the fate of Rome and the papacy.

   Rome's destruction is another of many "Last Days" events scheduled to occur in advance of the final destruction by fire that will take place in the last half of this century according to the prophecies. It's a frightening scenario, and so it's not surprising that everyone is denying the approach of all these disasters.
