India is in final-countdown mode, prepping to send a spacecraft to Mars on Tuesday as a sort of multimillion-dollar test to see if the country’s technology is advanced enough to compete on a solar-system scale.

“We have a lot to understand about the universe, the solar system where we live in, and it has been humankind’s quest from the beginning,” said K. Radhakrishnan, the chairman of the Indian Space and Research Organization, in the Daily Mail.

If India succeeds with the launch, it will be the fourth to reach Mars — after the United States, Russia and Europe.

“We want to use the first opportunity to put a spacecraft and orbit it around Mars and, once it is there safely, then conduct a few meaningful experiments and energize the scientific community,” he said in the Daily Mail.

This is the first Mars mission for India. Moreover, none of the other countries that has made it was successful on the first attempt. And 23 out of 40 Mars missions around the world have failed.
But India wants to get into the group of space elites, Mr. Radhakrishnan said.

The Mars craft is set to blast off Tuesday for a planned 300-day journey around the planet.

South Africa UFO Encounter

South Africa UFO Encounter, 1997

This sighting took place in September 1997 while travelling home from windsurfing on an inland lake in South Africa. The journey took us past the CSIR (Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) buildings on the periphery of the city of Pretoria which we passed on our left. It was dusk and we were travelling in a southerly direction home towards Johannesburg.

UFO sightings off South African coastline soar in February

The founder of UFO Research of South Africa says reports of unidentified flying objects off the South African coast near Cape Town rose dramatically during the week of Feb. 21-27.
Many of the sightings can be explained away by meteor showers, said Gert Jordaan, who tracks such reports on his UFO Research website, The Telegraph reported. But many cannot.

Posted on Monday, 11 March, 2013 
Reports of objects in the skies over the Cape Town coast have been on the increase in recent weeks.

UFO investigator Gert Jordaan has claimed that a recent spate of sightings took place between February 21st and February 27th involving reports of bright orange lights and flames in the sky. While the exact nature of the objects has yet to be confirmed, some believe that the reports can be attributed to meteor showers in the region.

"Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed," said Jordaan. "Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so."

Gert Jordaan, founder of UFO Research of SA, said that between February 21 and February 27 many people reported seeing bright orange lights and flames in the sky. He said that while some sightings could be attributed to meteor showers, others could have a more interesting explanation.

Another fireball 'burns brightly with a tail of fire' as it streaks across Alabama sky (video)

As thousands looked down on the football field in Tuscaloosa, many others were reportedly looking up at a possible meteor streaking through the sky over the stadium Saturday evening.

An eyewitness in Bryant-Denny Stadium reported that she was surrounded by screaming Alabama fans when "the fireball appeared in the sky above the upper deck and burned brightly with a tail of fire and disappeared within about 5 seconds."

For less than 10 seconds, a bright flash of light was visible over north and central Alabama, according to more than 200 eyewitness sightings posted on the American Meteor Society's website.

The AMS has mapped the reports it received from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

Accounts from Alabama eyewitnesses – from Montgomery, Auburn, Cullman, Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Decatur, Huntsville and elsewhere – range from the scientific to the spiritual.

An account from Montgomery reads: "Twilight observation. This was a very bright, sustained sighting that lasted approx. 7 seconds. Very slight downward arcing path. Much brighter and larger than any of the Perseids."

"It was beautiful. Life affirming. I feel very small," a Birmingham witness said.

A Cullman observer summed up the sighting, saying it was "the best meteor that I (have) ever seen in 50 years of observing meteors."

The reports come just a few weeks after a bright fireball passed unusually close to the earth's surface at 8:18 p.m. Sept. 9 and solicited reports of sightings from Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

If you think you saw a meteor Saturday tonight, you can report the location on the AMS website.

Miraculous UFO Sighting in Marmora

Yaphet Kotto writes about the owner of a farm in Canada where 30,000 have traveled in homage to true believers,  in his brand new novel ”I don’t want to be told I’m seeing things”  He asserts firmly that the miraculous “Miracle of the sun that occurred for 14 years and continue to
take place was in fact a UFO sighting..

The farm, located in Marmora, Ontario, about 120 miles east of Toronto, has been the site of numerous claims since 1991, when phenomena erupted during a reunion of those who had journeyed to the famous apparition site of Medjugorje in former Yugoslavia.
The farm was owned by John Greensides, who died several years back, and his wife, Shelagh, 80, who is in the process of turning the land over to Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.
Yaphet reports that the local diocese based in Kingston has refused
to offer an official comment on the site, according to a diocesan spokesman, although a warning was issued from a bishop during the 1990s on the potentially harmful effects of staring at the sun. Kotto says that they are not staring at the sun.”My wife and I filmed the event, it’s silly and unscientific to believe that the sun can fly out of orbit, spin around, dive and then fly back into the sky. I’ve said this before and I will say it again in my book that documents other UFO sightings. Marmora is one of the strongest proofs in Canada, that we are not alone.”

Hindu Weapons

Hindu Weapons                                                                        

   Agneyastra -  A fire-weapon. This devastating weapon was given by Aurva to Sagara who used it to kill or vaporized all the enemies who had forced his father Sachi into exile. 

  Brahmastra - is an astra, or celestial weapon created by Lord Brahma. It is sometimes known as the Brahma Astra (astra referring to 'missile weapon'). As described in a number of the Puranas, Brahmastra is considered to be the very deadliest of weapons. When a Brahmastra is discharged, neither a counterattack nor a defense of any kind can stop it.

A self-guided missile with sophisticated artificial intelligence, powerful  nonetheless classified as weapons of mass destruction, capable of destroying everything with a highly focused antimatter explosion.

The Brahmastra never misses its mark and must be used with very specific intent against an enemy, whether an individual or army, as the target will face complete annihilation. Brahmastra is said to be obtained by meditating on Lord Brahma, and can be used only once in a lifetime. The user would have to display immense amounts of mental concentration in order to get sanction to arm and use the weapon. Since Brahma is the Creator in Sanatana Dharma, it is understood that Brahmastra was created by him for the purpose of upholding Dharma and Satya.

    Chakram - is the circular weapon of diameter about 4.7-12 inches and has sharp cuts at the outer edge. The enemy is attacked by throwing the weapon at him. It is also known as circles or chalikar.
 This weapon is used against the enemy by twirling it in the index finger and thrown out with spin to add more power and vigor. 

Gada - The mace, popularly known as the Gada, is a weapon from the weapon time and holds an important position in the history of Hindu religion. It was carried by Lord Hanuman, Bhim, and others who were symbols of power and strength. The mace is said to be representing the concentrated Prana. As the Earth revolves round the sun and derives life force from it and then stores it, similarly, the Gada also moves around the user’s body to gather life force. It is the shape of a ball which symbolizes the earth rotating on its axis, the handle. It is a symbol of great power, valor, bravery and strength.

Kaumodaki  - the divine mace weapon of vishnu; invincible and without parallel. It is the source of Vishnu’s divine power, his physical strength, mental strength. This weapon represents Vishnu’s power to end all the ‘anarths inside a person’s mind and hinders them from reaching the God. He used this weapon to purify the spirits within us and uplift us from materialistic bonds. It is a mace which is omni-potent and heavy powered weapon which is impossible to defeat.

  Narayanastra (or Narainastra) - was the personal weapon of lord Vishnu in his Narayana (or Naraina) form. This astra ("weapon" in Sanskrit) in turn fires a powerful tirade of millions of deadly missiles simultaneously. The intensity of the shower increases with increase in resistance. The only way of defense towards this missile, is to show total submission before the missiles hit. This in turn will cause this weapon to stop and spare the target.
When fired, usually appear as a spiky ball of energy of varying colours, such as red, orange, yellow, blue, or green. 

Pashupatastra - in Hindu History, is the crescent-shaped irresistible and most destructive personal weapon of Kali and Shiva, discharged by the mind, the eyes, words, or a bow. Never to be used against lesser enemies or by lesser warriors, the Pashupatastra is capable of destroying creation and vanquishing all beings.

It could stun entire city blocks full of people destroy cities and even destroy entire asteroids up to a given size, it is also said to be capable of destroying continents. 

Shiva Dhanush - also known as Pinaka (Ajagav), in Hindu mythology, was the divine bow of Lord Shiva gifted to King Janaka by Sage Parashurama for safe-keeping while the sage performed penances. The bow is 8.5 feet in length as mentioned in the Dhanurveda.  
 A directed-energy weapon (DEW) emits energy in an aimed direction with or without the means of a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for a desired effect. Intended effects may be non-lethal or lethal. 

  Sudarshana Chakra - is a spinning, disk-like super weapon with 108 serrated edges used by the Hindu god Vishnu. 

 The more energy in each strike, the greater the damage will be.

Trishula - is a type of Indian trident but also found in Southeast Asia. It is commonly used as a Hindu-Buddhist religious symbol. The word means "three spear" in Sanskrit and Pali.

The trishula symbolism is polyvalent and rich. 

Vajra - The thunderbolt weapon of Indra, who is the God of Thunder and Lightning, akin to Zeus and Jupiter. It petrifies living tissue almost instantly.


Varunastra - is the water weapon (a storm) according to Hindu mythology, incepted by Varuna. In stories it is said to assume any weapon's shape, just like water. In Hindu myths or Puranas this weapon is said to have been obtained by great warrior characters such as Arjuna, Satyaki, Dhrishtadhuymna,
Dronacharya, and many other illustrious warrior characters. Mythology says this weapon was obtained by meditating on Varuna or Shiva, and was to be used with great care and skill. The usage of weapon was not possible for any inexperienced warrior, as a slight mistake committed, and the user himself could be destroyed.

The Lost City of Dwarka

Dwarka also spelled Dvarka, Dwaraka, and Dvaraka, is one of the best-studied underwater sites in India. It has commanded much attraction, also because the site is considered as one of the four Dhamas (sacred place for pilgrimage) of the Hindu religion

The Fatima Event Was UFO

Vallee: Fatima Event Was UFO

Excerpted from Cosmic Conflict

More seriously, the description made at Fatima, Portugal, OF A SILVERY DISK WHICH FLEW THROUGH THE SKY, WAS SEEN BY SEVENTY THOUSAND WITNESSES AND WAS PHOTOGRAPHED AS IT MANEUVERED, deserves a place in our resume of the 'flying saucer' legend..."

Nikola Tesla's Great Invention

Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system.

Tesla started working in the telephony and electrical fields before emigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting up laboratories/companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla as a consultant to help develop an alternating current system. Tesla is also known for his high-voltage, high-frequency power experiments in New York and Colorado Springs which included patented devices and theoretical work used in the invention of radio communication, for his X-ray experiments, and for his ill-fated attempt at intercontinental wireless transmission in his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project.

Tesla's achievements and his abilities as a showman demonstrating his seemingly miraculous inventions made him world-famous. Although he made a great deal of money from his patents, he spent a lot on numerous experiments over the years. In the last few decades of his life, he ended up living in diminished circumstances as a recluse in Room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel, occasionally making unusual statements to the press. Because of his pronouncements and the nature of his work over the years, Tesla gained a reputation in popular culture as the archetypal "mad scientist". He died penniless and in debt on 7 January 1943.

Tesla's work fell into relative obscurity after his death, but since the 1990s, his reputation has experienced a comeback in popular culture. In 2005, he was listed amongst the top 100 nominees in the TV show The Greatest American, an open access popularity poll conducted by AOL and The Discovery Channel. His work and reputed inventions are also at the center of many conspiracy theories and have also been used to support various pseudosciences, UFO theories and New Age occultism.

In 1960, in honor of Tesla, the General Conference on Weights and Measures for the International System of Units dedicated the term "tesla" to the SI unit measure for magnetic field strength.

Working for Edison

In 1882, Tesla began working for the Continental Edison Company in France, designing and making improvements to electrical equipment.

In June 1884, Tesla relocated to New York City. During his trip across the Atlantic, his ticket, money, and some of his luggage were stolen, and he was nearly thrown overboard after a mutiny broke out on the ship. He arrived with only four cents in his pocket, a letter of recommendation, a few poems, and the remainder of his belongings.

In the letter of recommendation from Charles Batchelor, a former employer, to Thomas Edison, it is claimed that Batchelor wrote, "I know two great men and you are one of them; the other is this young man." (The exact contents of the letter are disputed in McNichol's book.) Edison hired Tesla to work for his Edison Machine Works. Tesla's work for Edison began with simple electrical engineering and quickly progressed to solving some of the company's most difficult problems. Tesla was even offered the task of completely redesigning the Edison Company's direct current generators.

In 1885, Tesla claimed that he could redesign Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making an improvement in both service and economy. According to Tesla, Edison remarked, "There's fifty thousand dollars in it for you—if you can do it"—this has been noted as an odd statement from an Edison whose company was stingy with pay and who did not have that sort of cash on hand. After months of work, Tesla fulfilled the task and inquired about payment. Edison, claiming that he was only joking, replied, "Tesla, you don't understand our American humor." Instead, Edison offered a US$10 a week raise over Tesla's US$18 per week salary; Tesla refused the offer and immediately resigned.

Middle years (1886-1899)

In 1886, Tesla formed his own company, Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing. The company installed electrical arc light based illumination systems designed by Tesla and also had designs for dynamo electric machine commutators, the first patents issued to Tesla in the US.

Tesla proposed that the company should go on to develop his ideas for alternating current transmission systems and motors. The investors disagreed and eventually fired him, leaving him penniless; Tesla was forced to work as a ditch digger for US$2 per day. Tesla considered the winter of 1886/1887 as a time of "terrible headaches and bitter tears". During this time, he questioned the value of his education.

In April 1887, Tesla started a company, the Tesla Electric Company, with the backing of New York attorney Charles F. Peck and Alfred S. Brown, the director of Western Union. They set up a laboratory for Tesla at 89 Liberty St. in Manhattan so he could work on his alternating current motor and other devices for power distribution, with an agreement that they share fifty-fifty with Tesla any profits generated from patents. It was here in 1887 that Tesla constructed a brushless alternating current induction motor, based on a rotating magnetic field principle he claimed to have conceived of in 1882. He received a US patent for the motor in May 1888. At that time many inventors were trying to develop workable AC motors because AC's advantages in long distance high voltage transmission were counterbalanced by the inability to operate motors on AC. The rotating magnetic field induction motor seems to have been an independent invention by Tesla but it was not a unique discovery at the time. Italian physicist Galileo Ferraris published a paper on rotating magnetic field based induction motor on 11 March 1888, a working model of which he may have been demonstrating at the University of Turin as early as 1885. In 1888, a month before Tesla demonstrated his AC induction motor, Westinghouse engineer Oliver B. Shallenberger invented an induction meter that was based on the same rotating magnetic field principle and during Tesla's demonstration English engineer Elihu 
Thomson stated he was working on an induction motor.

In 1888, the editor of Electrical World magazine, Thomas Commerford Martin (a friend and publicist), arranged for Tesla to demonstrate his alternating current system, including his induction motor, at the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (now IEEE). Engineers working for the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company reported to George Westinghouse that Tesla had a viable AC motor and power system—something that Westinghouse had been trying to secure. In July 1888 Brown and Peck negotiated a licensing deal with George Westinghouse for Tesla's polyphase induction motor and transformer designs for $60,000 in cash and stock and a royalty of $2.50 per AC horsepower produced by each motor. Westinghouse also hired Tesla for one year for the large fee of $2,000 a month to be a consultant at the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company's Pittsburgh labs.

During that year, Tesla worked in Pittsburgh, helping to create an alternating current system to power the city's streetcars. He found the time there frustrating because of conflicts between him and the other Westinghouse engineers over how to best implement AC power. Between them they settled on a 60-cycle AC current system Tesla proposed (to match the working frequency of Tesla's motor), although they soon found that, since Tesla's induction motor could only run at a constant speed, it would not work for street cars. They ended up using a DC traction motor instead.

Tesla demonstrated wireless energy transmission (Tesla effect) as early as 1891.

In 1891, Tesla patented the Tesla coil.

Tesla Coil

The Tesla coil is one of Nikola Tesla's most famous inventions. It is essentially a high-frequency air-core transformer. It takes the output from a 120vAC to several kilovolt transformer & driver circuit and steps it up to an extremely high voltage. Voltages can get to be well above 1,000,000 volts and are discharged in the form of electrical arcs. Tesla himself got arcs up to 100,000,000 volts, but I don't think that has been duplicated by anybody else. Tesla coils are unique in the fact that they create extremely powerful electrical fields. Large coils have been known to wirelessly light up florescent lights up to 50 feet away, and because of the fact that it is an electric field that goes directly into the light and doesn't use the electrodes, even burned-out florescent lights will glow.

Beetle Robot Heals Cancer

Insect-Shaped Robot Heals Cancer

The idea of a beetle moving around inside your body may be the stuff of horror films. But scientists believe an insect-shaped robot could be a major weapon in the fight against cancer.

The device, just under an inch long, is designed to be inserted into the body through a small incision.

Once inside, doctors can control its movements and direct it to areas where investigations are needed.

The robot measures 2cm in length by 1cm in diameter and can deliver drugs, collect data and treat affected body parts with a range of different attachments.

It would be able to capture images through a tiny camera placed in its "head" - and could deliver drugs through a special injecting device.

Early versions have also included tiny forceps for taking tissue samples. In future these nippers could be used to snip out cancerous cells.

Less than half an inch across, the metal device is encased in plastic to protect its components while in the body. It is connected to a computer by a cable through which it relays data and images.

This can also be used as a "safety line" if the beetle goes off course.

Doctors would be armed with MRI body scans of the patient taken in advance to help them navigate the robot.

However, unlike the plot of the 1966 Raquel Welch film Fantastic Voyage - which featured a microscopic crew and submarine travelling through a scientist's bloodstream - this device could not be inserted into blood vessels because it is too big.

But it could be placed within the digestive tract, where it could be used to seek out and treat cancers of the oesophagus or bowel.

In tests on animals the robot, which weighs around five grams and is roughly the size of a cockroach, is said to have performed very well.

The prototype, which is the result of three years' work by researchers at Ritsumeikan University and the Shiga University of Medical Science in Japan, was unveiled yesterday.

It is not the first time that scientists have developed mini-robots to work inside the body. Other researchers have created ones which are designed to be swallowed and take internal pictures. And U.S. scientists are working on a small robot that enters though an incision to treat heart problems.

However, the latest model is the most versatile and able to perform the most functions.

According to one of its developers, Professor Masaaki Makikawa, this new prototype robot has the ability to perform treatment inside the body, eliminating the need for surgery in some cases. Miniature robots able to move through the body would be particularly useful to investigate and treat tumours in hard-to-reach parts of the body, such as sections of the bowel.

In 2005, New Scientist magazine reported that Italian researchers were developing a six-legged robotic camera that crawls around inside the body and attaches itself to the intestine wall.

Its legs had tiny hooks on the end so it could crawl through the gut without slipping. It also had a special clamp that allowed doctors to stop it altogether if they spotted something of concern and needed to take a closer look.

At the time, researcher Dr Ariana Menciassi, of the Sant' Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa, said: "All the indications are that this will be far less uncomfortable than a colonoscopy or gastroscopy in which the intestine is inflated, causing much pain to the patient."  Read more

Japan underwater pyramid

Mysterious structures found underwater off the coast in Japan said to mystify experts as to who built them and what do symbols found in some stones mean. Evidence suggests that the apparent city underwater, which includes a pyramid structure, may have been created by extraterrestrials long before the start of mankind history.

The apparent underwater city was found in the sea off to the coastline of Japanese fishing village. The so called alien city is believed being created about 110,000 to 130,000 years ago during the period known as Sangamonian.

It is believed that the underwater city was built in the dry land that became underwater as the seas gradually rose and the land fell.

With the help of modern technology and adventurous divers the city was rediscovered with its ancient wonders. It is considered that the builders of the city have a fantastic imagination. Divers to the city are officially acknowledged as a treasure of the Japanese nation. They swim deep underwater despite of uncertainties and difficulties that would come to them.

A head that once found on a big statue was discovered. It has an extraordinary face that could not be attributed to human.

Alien followers are not surprise that an ancient city was discovered in Japan because they believe that Lands of the East have a long history of alien influence, contact and revered artifacts. It is noted that legends of most Asian countries such as Japan, Korea, China and Tibet are rich in myths, tales and legends of alien masters, visitors and beings that are so great making them like Gods.

It is believed that ancient aliens developed big cities, some aliens became cruel masters while others became loving like parents. It is also conceived that others are just lost and died far away from their own planets.  Source : Extra Terrestrials

The Final Pope is Among us! The Last and Final Warning!

“Then I saw ANOTHER BEAST… he 


You may remember

that these total
“666” which is the






  The POPE, as the “VICAR OF

 GOD would NOT ALLOW such

A thing to occur UNLESS it
Is given to WARN US that this
Position is “NOT WHAT IT


11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon

12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

St Malachy Prophecy of the Popes

The most famous and best known prophecies about the popes are those attributed to St. Malachy, a medieval Irish priest and Kabbalist. In 1139 he went to Rome to give an account of the affairs of his diocese to the pope, Innocent II, who promised him two palliums for the metropolitan Sees of Armagh and Cashel. While at Rome, he received (according to the Abbot Cucherat) the strange vision of the future wherein was unfolded before his mind the long list of illustrious pontiffs who were to rule the Church until the end of time.

The same author tells us that St. Malachy gave his manuscript to Innocent II to console him in the midst of his tribulations, and that the document remained unknown in the Roman Archives until its discovery in 1590 (Cucherat, "Proph. de la succession des papes", ch. xv). They were first published by Arnold de Wyon, and ever since there has been much discussion as to whether they are genuine predictions of St. Malachy or forgeries. The silence of 400 years on the part of so many learned authors who had written about the popes, and the silence of St. Bernard especially, who wrote the "Life of St. Malachy", is a strong argument against their authenticity, but it is not conclusive if we adopt Cucherat's theory that they were hidden in the Archives during those 400 years.These short prophetical announcements, in number 112, indicate some noticeable trait of all future popes from Celestine II, who was elected in the year 1130, until the end of the world. They are enunciated under mystical titles. Those who have undertaken to interpret and explain these symbolical prophecies have succeeded in discovering some trait, allusion, point, or similitude in their application to the individual popes, either as to their country, their name, their coat of arms or insignia, their birth-place, their talent or learning, the title of their cardinalate, the dignities which they held etc.

For example, the prophecy concerning Urban VIII is Lilium et Rosa (the lily and the rose); he was a native of Florence and on the arms of Florence figured a fleur-de-lis; he had three bees emblazoned on his escutcheon, and the bees gather honey from the lilies and roses. Again, the name accords often with some remarkable and rare circumstance in the pope's career; thus Peregrinus apostolicus (pilgrim pope), which designates Pius VI, appears to be verified by his journey when pope into Germany, by his long career as pope, and by his expatriation from Rome at the end of his pontificate.

Those who have lived and followed the course of events in an intelligent manner during the pontificates of Pius IX, Leo XIII, and Pius X cannot fail to be impressed with the titles given to each by the prophecies of St. Malachy and their wonderful appropriateness: Crux de Cruce (Cross from a Cross) Pius IX; Lumen in caelo (Light in the Sky) Leo XIII; Ignis ardens (Burning Fire) Pius X. There is something more than coincidence in the designations given to these three popes so many hundred years before their time.

We need not have recourse either to the family names, armorial bearings or cardinalatial titles, to see the fitness of their designations as given in the prophecies. The afflictions and crosses of Pius IX were more than fell to the lot of his predecessors; and the more aggravating of these crosses were brought on by the House of Savoy whose emblem was a cross. Leo XIII was a veritable luminary of the papacy. The present pope is truly a burning fire of zeal for the restoration of all things to Christ.

The last of these prophecies concerns the end of the world and is as follows: "In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven- hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people.

It has been noticed concerning Petrus Romanus, who according to St. Malachy's list is to be the last pope, that the prophecy does not say that no popes will intervene between him and his predecessor designated Gloria olivoe. It merely says that he is to be the last, so that we may suppose as many popes as we please before "Peter the Roman". Cornelius a Lapide refers to this prophecy in his commentary "On the Gospel of St. John" (C. xvi) and "On the Apocalypse" (cc. xvii-xx), and he endeavours to calculate according to it the remaining years of time (Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913).
