After to Pope Francis, there are only four popes ...
According to a list of the prophet Nostradamus from 1555 (first publication of the Nostradamus prophecies) exactly 48 cardinals ascended the 'Throne Petri' of Vatican - then the mysterious list ends ...
"Black white to
blue, hides in the earth ...", wrote Nostradamus about Benedict XVI., the
successor of John Paul II. When my book "Nostradamus: Klartext" appeared in
2002 with a list of the last 48 Popes (Josef Ratzinger was the sixth-last Pope
in 2005 under the name of Benedict XVI), no one at that time knew that the colors
"white-blue" might describe a cardinal, that would come from Bavaria (Germany).
White-blue (not blue-white!) are the colors of the Bavarian rhombic flag. This
name of color scheme is traditional Bavarian. (Blue-white sounds in this district
almost an insult to most Bavarians).
At the beginning of year 2013 Pope Benedict XVI resigned from his duties. He has been superseded, as the fifth-last pope, by Francis I, who came from Argentina.
When the first edition of the famous Nostradamus-Centuria appeared in 1555, a "Three-pontifical year" had to be recorded at the end of the year, as in 1978. On the 23rd of March, Julius III. died, who was very fond of secular vices. His successor - the incorruptible Pope Marcellus II. - died after only 22 days (there was probably a little help!). Afterwards the 'The Cruel Horror Pope', Paul IV., follow to his ecclesiastical office (Nostradamus wrote about this pope: "The third will not receive what he realy want ...")
The greatest pope, by the way, was a pregnant lady who gave birth to her child during a procession. She was then beaten to death by the crowd, and drowned in the Tiber. Pro Sieben-TV had broadcast a documentary about this in December 2006.
