Has the end begun?
“I believe the timing of Benedict's resignation proves I am correct about Malachy's list of mottos of future popes being misinterpreted and misapplied,” writes prophecy buff Michael McClellan who hosts NewProphecy. “It is now clear the following nine anti-popes should not have been included in the list: Victor IV (1159-1164), Paschal III (1164-1168), Callistus III (1168-1178), Nicholas V (1328-1330), Clement VII (1378-1394), Benedict XIII (1394-1423), Alexander V (1409-1410), John XXIII (1410-1415), and Felix V (1440-1449).” Anti-popes were pretenders to the throne who often ruled simultaneously with the legitimate pope. Pope Gregory XII reigned between 1406 and 1415, during which he was challenged by two antipopes. At the Council of Constance, in order to heal the split in the Church, he resigned as did Anti-pope Benedict XIII. The remaining Anti-Pope John XXIII was deposed. All three were replaced by Pope Martin V."
