For those intrigued by the prophecies of St. Malachy, has an updated article today. I've tried hard not to put too much stock in this, yet it is too uncanny to ignore completely. Discernment must be put to good use. Obviously we as Christians believe in prophecy: the Old Testament was loaded with it, pointing towards Christ; and the Book of Revelations is nothing BUT a laundry list of prophecy. But how do you discern, while being true to your belief in prophecy? It's so easy to get carried away, isn't it?
"In the designs of Providence there are no mere coincidences," said John Paul II in 1982, and after a while, skeptics can discuss all the nuances and posit all the speculations they want but in too many cases, it seems, coincidence argue against them.

"I could, as so many of my contemporary indifferentists are wont to say, not have cared less" about the prophecies, noted one such former skeptic, Joel Wells, editor of The Critic. "But count me now among the utterly concerned and utterly converted."

There is also the fictional yet recognizable "prophecy" of Soloviev

Sober reading, this.
