Pope Francis on Thursday told Italian police officers in charge of security around the Vatican that he saw “shadows and dangers”, but urged them not to give in to fear.
“On the horizon we see shadows and dangers which worry humanity,” he said in the wake of an increase in security around the Vatican amid fears Islamic State extremists may be plotting to attack the head of the Roman Catholic Church.
Security was tightened in Saint Peter’s Square in September after intelligence services intercepted a possible plan to attack the Vatican. Iraq’s ambassador to the Holy See, Habib Al Sadr, at the time warned that “what has been declared by the self-declared Islamic State is clear.
Yesterday on NIGHT TERROR NEWS, I wrote a bit about the troubling ‘prophecies of the Pope’ that litter my mind. The news of this “shadows and dangers” comment provides even more fodder for the paranoid mind, the haunting images of a Pope standing overtop of his people during a final battle or perhaps even on being the last in a series prophetized by St. Malachy so many centuries ago..
This from the AP:
Iraq’s ambassador to the Holy See, Habib Al Sadr, at the time warned that “what has been declared by the self-declared Islamic State is clear. They want to kill the Pope. The threats against the Pope are credible.”
But are the prophetic words of Malachy, Pope Pius, and Nostradamus as credible as the threats?
