RVI: Thank you Franklin, and let's find out what is going on. First of all, from The Detroit News “Celebrating 25 Years” The Catholics prepare for John Paul II 25th anniversary amidst concerns for his health. Cardinal Ratzinger told the German Weekly Bunte that Pope John Paul II is in bad shape. And the Pope's poor health raises concern of who will be the next Pope. And this from The Associated Press “Who's Next? Ailing Pope Appoints 31 Cardinals “.
Well, I think that may be a record of appointing Cardinals. So many Cardinals at the same time. Why do you think the Pope has done this and what is going on in the Catholic Church?
JVI: I read all of the Pope's sermons in LOsservatore Romano and I want to say he's a man of God because he believes in the Virgin Birth, Matthew 1:23, believes Christ is God, Romans 9:5, believes that Christ is the only way who died for us on the cross, I Corinthians 15:3, that He rose again from the dead bodily, II Timothy 2:8, and He is Coming again. Concerning Christ's return. There shall arise a spark out of Poland who will be a Pope and when we have the Polish Pope, it will be time for Christ's return. I believe it is near. But go further. It was in 1139 when the Archbishop of Ireland St. Malachi said and God showed him this and he has been right to this hour after all these centuries, there will only be 110 popes. Pope John Paul II is 108. There will be two more. And he said the final one will defect from the Christian faith. I didn't say that. The Catholics have said it themselves.
And the Pope knows that the second secret of Fatima is that there will be great apostasy concerning that Christ is God and he knows this and he immediately elected 31 cardinals for a total of 190. Of this 190, only 5 of them are liberals from the other side. He has the promise of one more conservative Pope who preaches the truth like he does and then finally Peter Romano, the defector. That's what is going on.
All of this means that Jesus will soon return.
