Cardinal Arinze Will Be The Next Pope? by belabela: 2:09pm On Mar 04, 2012
For those who are familiar with St. Malachy vision of the popes

Ronald L. Conte Jr. who correctly predicted that the pope who would succeed Pope John Paul II would be called Pope Benedict believes Cardinal Arinze is Peter the Roman that St Malachy refered to in his prophecy.


As my regular readers know, I believe that Cardinal Arinze will be the next Pope. I’ve already explained why, at length, in my booklet: The Future and the Popes. I this post, I will answer a few additional questions on the subject.

Does the installation of 22 new Cardinals affect who will be the next Pope?

In my opinion, this appointment of new Cardinals will not change the outcome of the next papal election. There are a few reasons for this. First, almost all of the Cardinals of the Church are more conservative than the general laity. The range of opinions among Cardinals from the more liberal to the more conservative, occupies a much narrower range than among the laity, and that range is more towards the conservative end. A liberal Cardinal is probably still a conservative, from the point of view of liberal Catholic laypersons. The new Cardinals are not outside this range of opinions. So Arinze, as a conservative, would be favored by many Cardinals.

Second, while Arinze is even more conservative than many Cardinals, he will still be able to gain quite a few votes from the liberal Cardinals. Many Cardinals would like to continue the recent precedent of electing non-Italian Popes. The Church is worldwide and universal, so the Pope need not be Italian. And many Cardinals would like to extend this precedent, so that the next Pope would be non-European as well. The liberal Cardinals would prefer a Pope from the developing world. As a non-European from Africa, Cardinal Arinze would gain some votes from liberals.

Third, the current rules for electing the Pope have changed. A simple majority is no longer sufficient; two-thirds majority is necessary. So neither the liberal Cardinals, nor the conservative Cardinals, have a majority. They need to find a candidate that is acceptable to both groups. I believe that Cardinal Arinze is that candidate.

Is the next Pope the one called Peter the Roman by St. Malachy?

Yes, I believe so. We are now on the threshold of the tribulation. St. Malachy described the next Pope, the last Pope on his prophetic list of future Popes, as one who reigns during the tribulation.

Is the next Pope the last Pope ever?

No, certainly not. The next Pope is the last one on St. Malachy’s list of Popes, but he is not the last Pope ever. This is clear from the words of the Virgin Mary at La Salette, in which she describes a number of future Popes, after the tribulation begins, including a true Pope who will be a recent convert from Protestantism.

How long will the reign of the next Pope last?

The reign of the next Pope (Cardinal Arinze) will be brief. For he will die a martyr during the tribulation, perhaps as soon as 2013.

Fantasy.
The papacy is not what you think it is.
A black man, nay, non-white will never be Pope.

Re: Cardinal Arinze Will Be The Next Pope? by Rich4god(m): 8:37pm On Mar 04, 2012
Dont know for sure, but I think Arinze is up to 80yrs. In other words, he has crossed the age of been a pope.

There is one unwritten rule about the Papacy. It says "He who goes into conclave a Pope comes out a Cardinal." Simply put, the college of Cardinals will neva elect the most likely to be pope as Pope.
Re: Cardinal Arinze Will Be The Next Pope? by Cloak: 1:42pm On Mar 05, 2012
I think Cardinal Arinze is too old for the papacy though and Benedict still looks healthy as ever.

Is this not obvious? We have a yet-to-die Pope. Unless he would die anytime within this year to make room for Cardinal Arinze. What do you say?
Re: Cardinal Arinze Will Be The Next Pope? by Afam4eva(m): 2:08pm On Mar 05, 2012
That's if Cardinal Arinze does not go before him.

U shouldn't wast words on this. Cardinal Arinze is more than 80 years and the age for nomination to the papacy is not only for candidates less than 80 yrs.

Is not true at the bolded:


"The next Pope will be Pope Pius XIII, and he will reign at the start of the tribulation, and he will die a martyr. But which man will be this next Pope? One of the Brides of the Most Blessed Trinity had a vision of Cardinal Arinze with Pope’s hat on his head:

Claire Rose: “During this Holy Mass I had two visions. The first I saw Cardinal Francis Arinze` with the Pope’s Hat on his head. The tall hat. He was smiling! The second vision, I saw Mother Theresa of Calcutta. She, too, was smiling. Later as we were having lunch I was telling the two priests of my two visions. Fr. Jude began to smile. I was very surprised to learn that he knew both Cardinal Arinze and Mother Theresa! Only those who were present were told this.” (vision of June 1, 2003)

But if Arinze is to become Pope, he must be the next Pope, since he is advanced in age.

Cardinal Arinze will turn 79 in November of 2011. Only Cardinals under 80 years of age are permitted to vote in the papal conclave. However, there is no age limit to be elected Pope."
