St. Malachy's prophecies
Question from Johnny Minaya on 04-12-2005:

Do you think there are 2 popes left, like what St. Malachy's prophecies? Does the church accept him?

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 04-12-2005:

The Church accepts St. Malachy, but has never said that the prophecies attributed to him are his. They appeared in the 16th century, centuries after his death, and are more accurate for the Popes before their appearance than for the Popes after their appearance. They make for interesting speculation, but it would be unreasonable to put much credence in them.
