In this rarely heard interview from his vast archives, Richard speaks with the late Cris D. Putnam, the co-author of a new book which asserts Pope Francis l will be the final Pope of the Catholic Church as foretold by St. Malachy. 

Guest: Cris D. Putnam (deceased) co-author of a  book which asserts Pope Francis l will be the final Pope of the Catholic Church as foretold by St. Malachy. St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes, is said to be based on his prophetic vision of the next 112 popes, beginning with Pope Celestine II, who died in 1144. Malachy presented a description of each pope, culminating with the final pope, Peter the Roman, whose reign would end with the destruction of Rome and judgment. The prophecies, first published in 1595, were attributed to St. Malachy by Benedictine historian Arnold de Wyon, who recorded them in his book Lignum Vit. Tradition holds that Malachy had been called to Rome by Pope Innocent II. While there, he experienced a vision of the future popes, including the last one, which he wrote down in a series of cryptic phrases. According to the prophecy, the next pope is to be the final pontiff, Petrus Romanus or Peter the Roman. Some Catholics believe that the next pope on St. Malachy’s list heralds the beginning of a great apostasy followed by great tribulation, setting the stage for the imminent unfolding of apocalyptic events, something many non-Catholics would agree with.
