Peter the Roman comes when Benedict XVI goes
It happened for a reason all by design. It was just announced that Pope Benedict XVI will resign on Feb 28, 2013. A Reuters article dated Sept. 25 2011 announced that Italian newspaper Libero stated Pope Benedict was considering resigning however the Vatican dismissed those claims. He is the first pope to resign in nearly 600 years. On Nov 24, 2012 Pope Benedict XVI elevated 6 cardinals to choose the successor Why would the Catholic Church appoint one to become the Pope while knowing his age and health would be a drawback in serving the church? He is the oldest appointed Pope in over 275 years thus leading the way for “Peter the Roman”. Folks, life is about to change whether you like it or not… Who is Peter the Roman (Petrus Romanus)?

He might also be seen to be the fruit of the intercession of the Woman Clothed with the Sun labouring in Revelation 12 (because of his devotion to the Virgin Mary). His Funeral occurred on 8 April, 2005 when there was a solar eclipse visible in the Americas.
|267||Benedict XVI (2005-)||111||Gloria olivæ
The Benedictine order traditionally said this Pope would come from their order, since a branch of the Benedictine order is called the Olivetans. St Benedict is said to have prophesied that before the end of the world, a member of his order would be Pope and would triumphantly lead the Church in its fight against evil. While the Holy Father chose the name “Benedict”, this does not seem enough to fulfil the prophecy. Nor is it clear how Benedict XVI (a Bavarian) is “Glory of the Olives”. Since he is said to have remarked in the Conclave after saying he would take the name Benedict that it was partly to honour Benedict XV, a pope of peace and reconciliation, perhaps Benedict XVI will be a peacemaker in the Church or in the World, and thus carry the olive branch.
|In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit Petrus Romanus, qui pascet oves in multis tribulationibus: quibus transactis civitas septicollis diruetur, & Judex tremêdus judicabit populum suum. Finis.
(In extreme persecution, the seat of the Holy Roman Church will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the sheep through many tribulations, at the term of which the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.)
Revelation 17:9-12 This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while. The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.

Rumors keep getting stronger that Pope Benedict would Resigns in the year 2012. The now 84 year old Pope commented, he may not have the physical, mental and psychological capacity to carry out the necessary duties.
There’s been extreme pressure due to the attacks and controversies related to the pedophile priests scandal over the last few years. And, I’m sure we are not hearing half of it! It’s been clear, many years ago, Pope Benedict made some of the most controversial decisions, when he penned and signed a letter warning the clergy to keep quiet about the now highly publicized child abuse cases. This letter, I’m sure, has been a thorn in the Vatican’s side for a while. The transferring of clergy from parish to parish, only tells us the dysfunction that lie in the top levels of the Catholic Church that continue today. The thousands of children these clergy damaged, on the watch of our now Pope, something no one expected to encounter, coming from those who were appointed to be religious role models and who indirectly proclaimed a myth to be closer to God than their parishioners. What we found were men who needed severe psychiatric help.
What 85 year old wants the huge responsibility of overseeing one of the largest institutions of the world? Who, at that age, wants authority of Catholic doctrinal belief, to interpret natural law,wants to lead missions and create Catholic Universities? Do you know that every Pope writes encyclicals, apostolic letters, gives endless speeches and celebrates Mass every day? What? Are we tired yet? And at the current age of 84, who has such energy?
The Pope appoints bishops and cardinals. Also, he’s the chief legislator for the Church. He oversees the creation of dioceses and religious orders. The Pope also issues censures as punishments for those who are found guilt of violating the Code of Canon Law? What? Does this also apply to him? The Pope is the director of Catholic celebration and head of the Church government. He directs how Mass is to be celebrated and so on. The Pope also beatify individuals and canonize saints.
Is Benidict the last Pope ? No … According prophecy Peter The Roman will take power and he will be the last (Anti) Pope. Stay tuned in!
