Q. Do you believe Saint Malachy’s prophecy on the 112 Popes? Do you think the pope will be the false prophet?
A. I believe Malachy’s predictions are interesting and seem to generally conform to history. But to me they shouldn’t be viewed as having the authority of Scripture. As for the false prophet, there are currently several popular candidates, but since I don’t think the Church will be here when he rises to prominence, I haven’t been concerned with trying to identify him.
