Olivetians, of the olive, refersred to Benedictine order, Ratzinger took title Benedict XVI. Interesting?

Yikes, another 'Saint!' According to the Bible, I'm a Saint, is anybody going to pray to me when I die, or before? Rediculous!

Interesting ... yes, as fiction, and an demonstration of gullibility.

Important ... no.

Ratzinger took the title because of the short term last pope Benedict which would point to the health of this pope. This pope has had a stroke before. That limits the lifespan. I believe the Catholic order is trying to fulfill its own words.

Good for you Nancy, for considering Hal Lindsey's remarks who did research this question thoroughly. He gets his understanding from the same prophecies of St. Malachy.
---Judi on 4/28/05

I heard St Malachy's predictions explained by Hal Lindsey on TV. He said this pope was to be connected to Israel and the last one was the one after this one. So check again and see if you have your facts straight. I believe Hal Lindsey would have researched this topic very carefully.

There are many 'prophets', or so they seem. I see 'St.Malachy' as no different. Look at some of Nostrodomis' 'prophecies', many of them have come true, that does not make him a 'saint'. The devil has all sorts of information that he will feed to people. Some come to realization, some don't. Many are self fulfilling prophecies that some believe so strongly, THEY make them come true. Listen to God, HE is our only true source.

Non-Catholic Christians have difficulty understanding where Catholics stand on many things. I know, I was a Protestant believer for 42 years before my Catholic conversion. We believe everything you have said regarding the New Testament and Salvation, of course! A great book that puts the difference into perspective, by a (former) Presbyterian minister is, "Rome Sweet Home" by Scott Hahn. It helps bridge the gap in the two worlds of understanding. I hope some of you will want this understanding. The blog is too small to explain.

To Judy, I think all we need to understand is the Gospel in the New Testament. That is the road to eternal life and has nothing to do with a Pope. As long as you trust Jesus as your personal Savior and believe that He died on the cross to take the punishment for our sins, plus you must repent ,pray and ask Jesus to come into your heart and give you salvation. If you do that you are saved and you will go to Heaven for eternity when you die. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me". He is our bridge to God the Father. Praise Him

Now Bruce 5656, be nice. Although I agree. It's all malarchy. We should not put any man on a pedestal like they do the Popes. Catholics should study the Bible more. I think they are starting to in a lot of their congregations.The only man we should worship is Jesus Christ. I've never seen such weird things as saving the bones and blood, etc. of former Popes. That's not going to get anyone to Heaven. How Sad. It almost looks like Voodoo

Just type St Malachy on your web search bar, and you will get to a web-site which tells you all sorts of wonderful things about these prophesies. You can then make up your own mind!
---Alan_of_U.K. on 4/22/05

Eidi, go to St. Malachy's prophesy of the popes or type st. malachy in your 'web search.'
---gregg on 4/22/05

Are you shure that is not St. Malarchy?
---Bruce5656 on 4/22/05

If you do a Google on St. Malachy and note his prophecies over the last several centuries about the Popes you will find an astonishing level of accuracy regarding the nature and character of the men who would fill that role. I think it is indeed very interesting that Ratzinger took the title of Benedict XVI, after the Olivetians. An unfortunate problem in the Church today is most Catholics and non-Catholics alike do not understand Christian history well enough to be conversant on this topic, but there is much to learn before jumping to conclusions. Study, pray, reflect.
---Judi on 4/22/05

That's all a bit of a stretch, although the last pope named Benedict struggled desperately to keep peace before WWI. This Benedict is committed to bringing peace amoung the religions. The olive branch is a symbol of peace. Curious and outside the teaching of the scriptures, yes, but very interesting in these last days. When they say peace and safety. . .
---Erin on 4/22/05

I will love it if you post the reference text where one can locate that bit of information. It is important that we as Christians investigate such matters with seriousness to remove all doubts.

Thank you. Eidi
