This part of Castles of the Mind is predicated on contemporary history, with details of events and places that can blossom to an eye opening experience.   On April 8, 2005, the last hours glistened before being overtaken by the dark shadow of an eclipse, as seen by the actual photograph on that day (below).  

April 8 2005 Solar Eclipse

This part of the website, as are all the other parts, is built to emphasize the importance of history.   This area explores three themes as set by historian Robert C. Valentine: religion, science and the supernatural, set in alphabetic order.   Everything written by the author is not invented, it is diligently researched, every person, place and event. 
The opening section is laden with transcriptions on medieval manuscripts–that are neither lore or fabled misconceptions. The news also involves the future, as does the story of Fatima, which is part of this assembled information.   2017 marked the hundredth anniversary.  
One transcription centers on a pope of a solar eclipse that is amazing.   

Is it possible a 700-year old prophecy is true?  Let us dispense with the what-ifs.  What do you remember about 2005?

If we take a look at Valentine’s Day of 2005, it just so happened that Feb 14 was 1 1/2 months after the great Indonesian disaster of 2004, when the powerful 9.1 quake and tsunami struck, and when the U.S. quickly sent the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln and 11 other large naval warships AND C-130 Seahawks and C-2 Greyhound transport planes to assist people, which may be neither here nor there, but a part of our story is traced to 2004-2005. 
Moreover, our story is traced even further back in time to 1140 when a medieval monk wrote a strange list of 112, some say 111, short Latin phrases from his time to our time.  The synchronicity is that a person from that time did something remarkable, he named the popes before and after the pope of a solar eclipse.  That is not all. Those names that come after the pope of the solar eclipse, are dead accurate.   However, he never designates a year.  He only wrote about those who would come before and after the eclipse of 2005.  What's the catch?

The catch is that he also signalled big, big changes in the Roman Catholic Church.  You may choose not to believe the person who said it, but it does not absolve his accuracy, especially since the 1960s.  The name is Saint Malachy of Ireland.  There are numerous sites detailing his signature.  The newsmedia is not exactly in the dark, as ABC News reported.

Nothing has changed to destroy what he had pinpointed.

The Pope he mentioned actually died in 2005.   When he was born, Earth passed through a solar eclipse, too.   Another night, another day goes by, so what, right? 
Wrong.   When John Paul II, who was the pope of 2005, was entombed, an ominous timing elapsed on the Earth.   A solar eclipse happened.   The solar eclipse by itself is not unique, but what is unique is that he had called it to happen and, according to him, after St. John Paul II, Malachy only scribes two other names, and then, he names no other.   Chief concern:  What happens next?    The answer can be read in the history ebook, Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets
Nevertheless, referring to the time period involving the solar eclipse of 2005, the last 60 years, which includes the eclipse of 2005,  St. Malachy has not been 80 or 90% correct the last 60 years, but 100%. And, of all the popes in the history of the papacy, there has existed only one–let me repeat–only one pope associated with a solar eclipse.    What timing.
Rest assured, there is more than meets the eye, and you can read about it in Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets.   One must, however, be prudent and not go after willy-nily entries of fabricated stories, for there exist many, many who don’t wish you to learn the secrets of history.  Certain sources, for example, cite that he was to be interred on a different day but some in the Vatican changed it to April 8 as it enabled a timeframe when the world would be found facing an eclipse.   That can be a stretch, but St. Malachy earns his name in our contemporary world upon the birth of John Paul II on May 18, 1920–that is not invented–during an eclipse and designated by Malachy–nearly 8 centuries before–to become Pope–and that too was not invented, for it actually happened. The above are only footprints to what lies ahead.

You can’t have a closer association than that.   It is eerie, but like it or not, it is true.  The history ebook, Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets, is quite intricate and informative at over 300 pages.  The wonderful volume is undergoing updating.   See menu under home in the Shop Page.

But, how could a man born eight and a half centuries ago be that strangely accurate?   What timing. An 85-year old Pope Benedict XVI stepped down on Feb 28; as was announced the morning of Monday Feb. 11, 2013.  So do we have the last Pope?  The last Pope to what?

An extraordinary sign on the day of abdication?   English or spanish.

According to St. Malachy, when the Pope that follows Benedict XVI ceases to be Pope and ends his term, the list of popes abruptly ends, too.
The prophecies of St. Malachy are being known, moreso now than at any other time, because of the timing of Benedict’s resignation.   What shall we look for?  August of 2017 brought another disturbance in the sky,  a great American solar eclipse.
