“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+.
