Pope Francis has made a frightening prediction.

worldwide. The two researchers, who jokingly say their inspiration
was the Holy Spirit, have remained tight-lipped about how they were
able to forecast an almost unprecedented event so accurately.
As it turns out, Benedict's resignation would lead to the eventual election of Pope Francis, the 112th person on the list. Where things get scary is that the Prophecy ends with Francis - after him Malachy listed no more successors.
