My current interpretation of that prophecy from St. Malachy is that "Peter the Roman" is not one specific Pope. Rather, it is a way to refer to all the Popes during the entire tribulation and the inter-tribulation period. For every Pope is a successor of Peter, and every Pope is the Bishop of Rome. Therefore, the expression "Peter the Roman" is general, not specific. So the assertion that Peter the Roman will "feed his flock amid many tribulations" means that each holy Roman Pontiff will be the source of strength and light for the faithful during all the afflictions of the tribulation.

I find myself defending this pontiff's orthodoxy against liberals and his progressive views against conservatives. People need to bridle their mouths and open their ears.

Some liberals and some conservatives are essentially the same, both groups do not see the Pope as Teacher. Their teacher is a certain socio-political point of view, or a certain subculture within Catholicism.

Pope Francis is holy and orthodox; he may one day be proclaimed a Saint.

In this exclusive interview, Pope Francis speaks about, among other other things, women cardinals.

The Pope flatly denies allegations that he intends to nominate women cardinals, stating: “I don’t know where any such an idea came from. Women in the Church must be valued not “clericalised”.”

Good. I think women Cardinals is a bad idea. However it is possible, since there have been lay Cardinals in the past.

Today is Pope Francis' birthday and he can also celebrate because his favorite soccer team won the championship in Argentina with just 33 points, the lowest on record to be champion for any team in that country thus far .
