There are plenty of reasons to think that Bishop Malachy of Armagh wasn't even the author of these "prophecies," since --- though Malachy lived in the 12th century --- the "prophecies" were first published in 1595.

Also it's a stretch to say that because Jorge Bergoglio's dad was born in Portacomaro in the Piedmont, that qualifies Jorge to be "Peter of Rome." Does not compute. (His mother, Regina, was born in Buenos Aires--- not exactly a Roman suburb, either.)

I would, however, say that a Great Apostasy is predicted in a far more reliable source ---the New Testament--- and that's what we're seeing now: apostasy.

OF course the priests in the 1500s would never “salt” some papers into the archives. Right? Of course they would never consider submitting said documents for modern forensic analysis, NOT that I BELIEVE THE PROPHESIES. Perhaps the delay in distribution was in the late invention of movable type, viz Gutenberg Printing Press, ca. 1440 & not widely used till the 1500s.

Over the years, Nostradamus followers have noted hundreds of instances where “The Centuries” describes modern events. One of the most widely known is Nostradamus’ supposed prediction of Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime. However, most are after the fact interpretations.

The present POPE IS OF ITALIAN HERITAGE, with a sense of authoritarianism based on his having been a Peronista.

Do I take the Prophesies and Quatrains as fact? NO! Do I believe what you believe, viz the Great Apostasy*** is just another interpretation.(***Remember, Muslims kill Apostates.) The Mayan calendar was misinterpreted, too.

Perhaps if you cited the Old Testament, I would be a believer.
