The last Popes and the End Times

St. Malachy, an Irish Bishop, produced a list of future popes which began with Pope Celestine II in the year 1143.  His list consists of a single line which gives a clue to the characteristics of each pope.  From his list of 112 popes there is to be just one more after the current pope.  St. Malachy's predictions regarding the popes have been for the most part accurate regarding the Pope's identifying characteristics. St. Malachy didn't give any predictions or information about what will happen after the last pope.

According to some others, we will have arrived at the end times.
