Skip to comments.ELECTION OF A PONTIFF Pope choice fulfills ancient prophecy?

A prophecy by a 12th-century Catholic saint that predicted characteristics of the last 112 popes appears to have been strengthened by the election of the new pontiff today.
The prophecy labels the new pope "the Glory of the Olive." The Benedictine Order is known as the Olivetans and has as its symbol the olive branch. The new pope, though not of that order, chose as his name Benedict XVI.

"Isn't it just as reasonable to conclude that whoever made up the lists may have simply gotten tired..."
so, which ones do you believe? Nostradamus, the Mayans, or the Pope list?
I think that the 12th Century is too recent to be considered 'ancient.'
I say we consult Art Bell first.
"...which ones do you believe?..."
Well, I must admit I find the Mayan thing (not that I know much about any of them) quite interesting. But I don't "believe" any of them, but I don't think they end just because they authors "got tired". Maybe Nostardamus, but not the other two.
what happened to the King of something or other coming in 1999 as predicted by Nostradamus. (Of course Larry King did have an olive in his martini)
Thanks for that. I found it quite interesting.
Well, considering that the Virgin Mary was spotted on the Kennedy Expressway in Chicago.... The end must be near I'm telling you!!!
My favorite was the fake Nostradamus prophecy about the two towers in York.
I thought he was part of the order of St. George, not a Benedictine....
Well, Ratzinger took the name of Benedict when he became Pope. So some say that that's basically close enough.
