Q. Do you think the next Pope will be the false prophet? If so is it him alone that is working for Satan or the whole religion?
A. I think Islam will be the one world religion of the end times. This would make it difficult for the pope to be the false prophet unless he converted. But I also think the rapture of the Church will bring changes to the world’s religions that we can’t begin to imagine, so only time will tell. If the prophecy of St. Malachy is accurate the next pope will govern during a time of “many tribulations” including the destruction of Rome. His prophecy also says the next pope will be the last one.
