"During this century one pope will suffer bodily harm. Another will be assassinated. The assassination will be the final blow to the office of the Holy See. This pope will be the same one who will be chosen in the not too distant future but whose election will not be approved by the Roman clergy. His influence, however, will be such that he will win out over the objections of his opponents. While this pope will be the last one ever to reign as singular head of the Church, the beginnings of this change will occur with one of his predecessors who will give far-reaching powers to his cardinals. These same cardinals will use their powers to replace him with one more to their liking."
That quote reminded me of my recent posting titled The Prophecy of Saint Malachy. It regards Saint Malachy's prediction of who the final person on the throne at the Vatican would be (as well as vague predictions regarding the various popes that would rule during the years leading up to the final Catholic leader). This particular prediction of Jeane Dixon's reminded me of this prophecy. She says that during this century one pope would suffer bodily harm. Considering she published that prediction in the 1970's, that would mean the prediction regards a pope that reigned during the 70's, 80's, or 90's. This would appear to be a reference to Pope John Paul II, who was wounded in an assassination attempt by Mehmet Ali Agca in 1981. Her prediction then says that another pope will be assassinated. What's interesting about that is it says that the assassination will be the final blow to the office of the Holy See (the Pope) and that this particular Pope would be in charge, but that his election would not be approved by the Roman clergy. This sounds very similar to what Saint Malachy said about Peter the Roman. Saint Malachy said that Peter the Roman would be on the throne at the Vatican, but he doesn't explicitly state that Peter the Roman would be elected Pope. So if you compare Saint Malachy's prophecy to Jeane Dixon's, it appears Jeane Dixon may be predicting the assassination of Peter the Roman (Although there is a slight possibility her prediction of a papal assassination is a reference to John Paul I. John Paul I's death after only 33 days in office was said to probably have been a heart attack, but there was no autopsy done, so no one knows for sure. There are conspiracy theories that claim he was actually assassinated. Nevertheless, judging by the context of Jeane Dixon's prediction, I don't think she was making reference to John Paul I, but I thought I would at least point that out.)
So it seems we may have yet another reference to the final pope. I have to wonder though, did Jeane Dixon merely read Saint Malachy's prophecy and adapt it into her own prediction? Or is what she predicted a legitimate prophecy of her own? Judging by her long history of psychic and astrological predictions, it may very well be a legitimate prophecy of hers. We may never really know for sure though. The only thing we can do now is wait and see if her prediction is accurate.
