The Last Pope


“The Last Pope?” is a documentary from WND that brings viewers to Rome, Geneva, Belfast and the U.S. to discover the story of venerated Irish prophet St. Malachy. Lost inside the Vatican archives for 400 years, Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes emerged in the late 1500s at a time of great papal upheaval. Heralded at the time as a miraculous development, the origin and early years of the prophecy are cloaked in murky mysticism. According to the Prophecy of the Popes, a time of vast biblical significance is now at hand. “The Last Pope?” includes medieval historians, Vatican-affiliated experts, authors (including Tom Horn and Chris Putman, co-authors of “Petrus Romanus: The Last Pope Is Here”) and others. From Ireland to Italy, “The Last Pope?” tells a riveting story of eschatological intrigue.

Dove Review

“The Last Pope?” is a fascinating documentary that looks into the prophecies of the Irish priest St. Malachy, also known by some as a prophet. He prophesied about certain characteristics of future popes that, especially regarding the last several, seem to be dead on. For example, under Pope Benedict XV he predicted that religion would be depopulated. Sure enough, during World War l the Bolsheviks and their atheistic beliefs greatly affected the church. Some 100 million people left the church, depopulating it as Malachy predicted. Malachy died in 1148 at age 54.

His prophecies ended with the 112th pope, currently Pope Francis, and there are those who wonder if the time of the Great Tribulation is at hand, along with the return of Christ. The history of the Catholic Church and its popes are featured, in addition to some impressive artwork and paintings. Those who realize this is a turbulent time we live in and are curious about the future will find this to be an interesting documentary. Its themes are more geared toward children ages 12 and up, so we are awarding “The Last Pope?” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12+. This intriguing documentary will have you keeping an eye on current events!
