From the cover: “In 1139 St Malachy set out from Ireland on a harrowing pilgrimage to Rome. On sighting the Eternal City he fell to the ground and began murmuring cryptic Latin phrases, each signifying the future destiny of the Popes. For four hundred years the manuscript was locked in the labyrinth of the Vatican. On its rediscovery in 1595 it was rejected by the Church authorities as fraudulent but the content of the prophecies remains remarkably and chillingly accurate — to this day 90 per cent have come true. In examining the context of St. Malachy’s life, his pilgrimages and his miracles John Hogue presents a fascinating account of the fates of the Popes and eight hundred years of Catholic prophecy; including those of contemporaries, St Hildegard von Bingen, Joachim de Fiore and Nostradamus, whose vision of the papal succession closely resembles that of St. Malachy. In this first complete study of the prophecies in almost a hundred years, Hogue brings his expertise to new revelations regarding the authenticity of the mottoes. As the Roman Catholic Church continues to witness an eclipse in papal power this masterly work uncovers the truth about St. Malachy’s prophecies and reveals their significance as an account of the papal progression which Vatican policy makers have found too threatening to acknowledge.”
