Peter the Roman and St. Peter's bones are being linked together to the St. Malachy prophecies, a conspiracy theory that says Pope Francis will be the 112th pope called Petrus Romanus who brings in the end days.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the Vatican unveiled St. Peter's bones to the public for the first time recently. While it's impossible to make a DNA comparison, and archaeologists don't want to say for certain the skeletal remains are from Peter of the Bible, the Vatican insists there is enough evidence for a "verification."
The Saint Malachy prophecies about papal elections were allegedly penned in the 1100s, but not published until 1595. This makes many believe these supposed prophecies are forgeries, since description of subsequent popes tended to get vague. For example, recently retired Benedict XVI, or pope number 111, is the "glory of the olive." The Benedictine Order has a branch called the Olivetans, but Joseph Ratzinger was not a member.
The Saint Malachy prophesy ends in this manner with the papal election of pope number 112:
"In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people."
Technically, since each pope takes upon themselves the mantle of Peter of the Catholic Church, which stems from the Roman Empire, all the popes could be called Peter the Roman, or Petrus Romanus. It could also be argued that Pope Francis may eventually earn a similar, or exact, nickname due to his deeds as pope. But some people resurrected the conspiracy theory by pointing out Pope Francis' new Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, whose name obviously is the rock,is the automatic successor in case the reigning Pope dies.
But where do St. Peter's bones even come into the picture?
The person in this video believes the Vatican is arranging a "set up" for a reincarnation of Peter and that it's not a coincidence they choose the particular day in which the bones are being shown. She thinks it's possible this somehow could lead to the rise of the false prophet as predicted in Revelation. There's also some connection made between deals the Vatican has made with Israel in this past year.
Do you think putting St. Peter's bones on display could somehow be connected to the St. Malachy prophecy concerning Peter the Roman, or Petrus Romanus?
