Many years ago a prophet named every single pope that would reign and the pope who is coming next was named the LAST pope, the prophet said the next pope is named Peter the great and we will not have another pope after him... Very soon we will have four eclipses all within a few months and one of them will be a lunar eclipse.. That is where the moon turns blood red and i believe this will be the beginning of what was prophesied in the Bible in revelations. I believe the lightning strike was an official, He's here, the only thing we can do is watch and see.

Interesting that you wrote that, because I just finished writing and posting an article about that prophecy and about the two candidates high on the papal list who would fulfill that prophecy in an amazing way if chosen:

The Prophecy of St. Malachy that you speak of is very interesting in how some see that it accurately predicted every pope.(There is a little room to say some of the matches are a stretch, but many are right on, and the stretches are, at least, not implausible.) Pope Peter II may, indeed, be waiting in the wings.

That, in itself, might be exciting enough for a pope who believes in prophecies, to step aside just so that he can see these final prophesied days unfold.(While some readers here probably don't believe in prophecies, remember that the pope does; so, they may very well guide his actions, and the reasons he might step aside because of them are fascinating (without needing to be darkly conspiratorial -- more like rational when thinking about a man who believes in prophecy).
