year 1143 to our present time - and indeed of the antipopes as well. The
remarkable way in which the visions St Malachy is alleged to have had, are
shown to apply to the succesive individual popes is most amusing. Is it
not the case to repeat: "Se non e vero, e ben trovato"? (If it

three days after the beginning of his papacy.
"De la media luna" Of the half moon is a very accurate

description fits John Paul II perfectly, since he emerged as a especial
light for the Catholic Church, promoting the faith from all angles. The
works of John Paul II were truly the work of God, the labor of the sun.
The second meaning of "De labore solis" is a solar eclipse,
in which the sun seems to struggle in order to give its light. Perhaps the
fact that John
Paul II, was a very
Marian Pope who had a special devotion to the Virgin Mary,
the woman clothed with the sun that appears in the Apocalypse, suggests
that the sun (Our Lord) has been temporarily eclipsed by the moon (Our

defend the Catholic principles that represent the truth of the teachings
new Pontiff is covered under the sign of the olive according to the
prophecies of St. Malachy
The branches of the olive were symbols of peace and victory for Noah
after the flood. Throughout history, we know that olive branches have made
crowns for kings and athletes as symbols of power and glory. The olive
tree thrives in silent areas, such as the garden of olives where Jesus
suffered his agony before being arrested by the soldiers.
oil has anointed kings, saints, popes and in a especial way all
leaves and the oil of the olive tree have medicinal properties, derived
from the oleic acid which is an anti cancer component. The good kitchen
cannot exist without olive oil. The best paints have olive oil base, to give
them luster and to increase their durability.

error. He presents himself exposing the truth of our faith with a
special courage, he is prepared to heal the cancer of heresy, the
infection of apostasy and to promote the health of our Catholic faith.

the last one, named "Gloria Olivae"
which means the glory of the olive, it is to be a time of glory and
rejoicing for the true Church.
to the straightforwardness of our new Pontiff, great opposition is
expected, but the Spirit of God is with him and we are in good hands.

Thessalonians 3-4 speaks of the apostasy of the last times before the
second coming of Christ, when evil will be defying everything that is
sacred. The man of iniquity, or the anti-Christ will take his seat in
the temple of God.
This does not necessarily means the embodiment of the devil but if could

temples of the spirit of God are being desecrated by their own

death on the cross, the Church being the mystical body of Christ has a
similar task. Therefore the church is to be persecuted, insulted and finally crucified, in
preparation for the coming of the Lord.
