Ratzinger the Black Pope
Apr 17, 2005
A Black Pope
Many people have been talking about the "Prophecies of St. Malachi" and other such apocryphal mysticism that suggest that we are in the end times. Some of these prophecies predict that a "black pope" will follow the footsteps of the "spark from the east" (interpreted as John Paul II) who followd the pope of the "half-moon" (or something to indicate the short reign of John Paul I). The black pope will be a truly "Petrine" pope who may even take the name of Peter, which has never been done since the apostle.

Well, seeing as how I'm all for advancing useless speculation, here are three possible interpretations of the future "black pope."

First, it could actually be a pope whose skin is black, or at least dark. Two names come quickly to mind, since they are in all of the papabile lists: Francis Cardinal Arinze and Ivan Cardinal Dias These are, of course the most commonly thought of names, since they are dark skinned, and particularly to Americans, this is always on their minds.

However, I would like to offer two other interpretations that I find interesting.

First, it was always said that the Jesuits would never have a pope because it would give them too much power. The Superior General of the Jesuits was always called the "black pope" because of the black Jesuit cassock, and his complete authority over the entire Jesuit order, which at one point in history was actually something impressive. Well, since the Superior General of the Jesuits is out, maybe it would be another Jesuit, a man in "black" who would ascend to the chair of Peter . . . how about Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio, S.J. A Jesuit from Latin America who isn't running around with a gun and the collected works of Karl Marx under his arms! Will wonders never cease!

Finally, there is a much more likely "black pope" who could emerge. You see, Europe is as white as it comes. From the Fair Skinned Norwegians to the olive skinned Southern Italians, this is not really the land of the "black." However, there are some regions in Europe whose inhabitants have been graced with the moniker "black" to describe them. Not the least among these are the "black Germans" of Bavaria. Well, there is a certain Cardinal who might just fit the bill . . . that's right: Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger

Any of these Cardinals would make my day, and they would fulfill the apocryphal prophecies of St. Malachi (et al). So let's hear it for the "Black Pope

Daniel Prophecy
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 618055


ok. so what if daniel's prophecy doesn't go as planned, and isn't fulfilled on these dates or even in 2012. what then?

don't you realize the more you (not you personally, just people like you) go on about all these prophecies... prophecies that always seem to never come to fruition, the more ridiculous christianity looks to the world, and the more non-christians are hesitant to believe that christianity is the true way? isn't, like, part of the job description of being a christian to help lead as many people to god as they can?

i'm not trying to attack you or anything, i'm genuinely curious.

Re: Ratzinger the Black Pope
Ratzinger was raised among the BLACK Germans of Baveria.
He has the beliefs of the Mennonite people. Mennonites only wear Black and grey. Nostradamus was trying to tell us this. So was St. Malachy (Black Olives) of Europe
I think he will be a very good pope with good intentions but somehow still a big mistake which we will understand in time.

Re: Ratzinger the Black Pope
The Vereinigung bayerischer Mennonitengemeinden is an association of all Mennonite congregations located in Bayern (Bavaria) in 1922, with the exception of the Ingolstadt congregation but including the congregations in what at that time was the Bavarian-Palatinate area. It was incorporated in 1926 and 1928. The 19 members in 1928 were Branchweilerhof, Deutschhof, Donauwörth (today: Augsburg) Eichstock, Eppstein, Ernstweiler (today: Zweibrücken), Friedelsheim, Kohlhof, Kühbörncheshof, Ludwigshafen, München, Neudorferhof, Obersülzen, Regensburg, Sembach, Trappstadt (today: Bad Königshofen im Grabfeld), Weierhof, Würzburg (Würzburg-Giehelstadt) and Ixheim (today: Zweibrücken). The association was joined by the Nürnberg congregation in 1972 and the Ingolstadt congregation in 1979. According to a new 1987 constitution only the churches located in Bavaria, i.e., Augsburg, Bad Königshofen im Grabfeld, Eichstock, Ingolstadt, München, Nurnberg, Regensburg, and Würzburg would be members of the association. The association was an associate member of the Argbeitsgemeinschaft christlicher Kirchen in Bayern (Task Force of Christian Churches in Bavaria).

Many of us Protestants know of the malachi prophecy and we do believe that Ratzinger is the man for the era. We are in the last days.

The Bible appears to predict a Nuclear Global War. We are about 3.5 years away from that.

Re: Ratzinger the Black Pope
If anyone is truly interested in pursuing the truth about the Pope, please read "The Ratzinger Report" before you sprout w/e ill informed idea you've been fed by the agents of the moneychangers.


"The Ratzinger Report contains journalist Vittorio Messori’s unprecedented and provocative interview with Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, then Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and now Pope Benedict XVI. With candor and clarity, Cardinal Ratzinger addresses an array of controversial topics including the meaning of the Second Vatican Council, the idea of the Church, the nature of the priesthood and episcopate, the place of women in the Church, the riches of the sacred liturgy, the teaching of the Church concerning last things, and the future of ecumenism and evangelization. This interview offers readers an excellent glimpse of the spiritual vision of the man Christ has chosen to be His Vicar in Pope Benedict XVI."
