Pope Francis – The Bishop of Fatima and the

“Glory of the Olive”?


A few commentators on this blog have made some intriguing insights concerning our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, which I thought that other readers might be interested in. In the previous post, Joe Russo has highlighted what I consider to be a very important point:

Something just struck me while reading a post about our Holy Father.
It was Father Z’s blog and I stopped reading right away when this struck me. He was talking about his audience with the Cardinals and how he again was just wearing his white cassock…and then mentioned how he hopes in the future he will choose to wear more decorum…and then the thought jolted me!

“We saw a Bishop dressed in white….”
The 3rd secret of Fatima!!!!
Why would that be of any significance in the vision, for yes Popes at times are seen in just there cassock but he wears it like this all the time!

An anonymous commentator also passed on the below information on the post The Prophecy of Bl. Tomasuccio de Foligno:

Prophecy of Blessed Tomasuccio of Foligno, 1319-1377): “One from beyond the mountains shall become the Vicar Of God…”

Pope Francis: Jorge Mario Bergoglio – Born on December 17, 1936, of a father employed by the railroad and a stay-at-home mother, this son of Italian immigrants from Piedmont. The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, i.e., ad pedem montium, meaning “at the foot of the mountains”.

In reply, I researched the etymology of the surname Bergoglio, and came up with the following results:

Excellent point anon!

Also “berg” means “mountain” in several languages. As well as being the name of a river in Lombardy, “oglio” can also mean “hotchpotch” “mixture” or “medley”.

So rather roughly, Bergoglio can mean “mountain range”. The word “oglio” is also the direct equivalent of “olio” which is derived from the Latin oleum – which means “olive oil”.

So it can also mean the “mountain of olive oil”, which of course immediately brings to mind the Mount of Olives.

We can do some additional wordplay with the surname Bergoglio. The Italian word “orgoglio” means “pride”. So we can also see here an allusion to the “pride of the olives”, or as St. Malachy puts it the “glory of the olive”. This would help to verify my newly revised theory that Pope Benedict XVI was not actually the “glory of the olive” himself, but rather is the one who opened the doors of the Temple to reveal the “glory of the olive” – a term which is directly related to the two olive trees that stand before the Lord of all the earth in Rev 11:

“These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.”
(Rev 11:4)

“Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.”
(Rev 3:8)

Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.
(Rev 11:19)

Cf. Ezek 47

  1. “The name Piedmont comes from medieval Latin Pedemontium or Pedemontis, i.e., ad pedem montium, meaning “at the foot of the mountains”.”

    Very interesting.
    Another Amo, Amas, Amat award for the Latin.

    But what’s going on with the Pope’s crozier?

  2. The Piedmont part with the medieval Latin “Pedemontium” and ad pedem montium (“at the foot of the mountains”) was interesting.
    A possible suggestion for the symbolism, hermeneutics and typology of the “Petrus Romanus” from the alleged St. Malachy prophecy,
    including in the anagogical sense that would have appealed to de Lubac.
    What if Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman) has to do with language, the Latin language, and more widespread use of the Latin Mass?
    The Latin Mass as the Mass of the Romani (i.e., Romanorum).
    Someone was just talking about the Latin Mass being more frequent and available in the city of Rome now (the Michael Matt interview?).
    So what if Petrus Romanus refers to liturgy?
    But also the Roman culture of the Catholic Church. Hilaire Belloc’s book on Rome (The Path to Rome). Rome in the eschatological sense in the
    salvation history of the Catholic Church. Isn’t every convert on the path to Rome to become a Romanus?
    The Pope’s Mass this morning had Latin broadcasted on cable all over the world.
    The Roman language. With the Orthodox Greek Patriarch in attendance for the first time in about a thousand years since the Great Schism, the Gospel chanted in ancient Greek, symbolically uniting the Empire, East and West, again in Rome.

    People have been looking to St. Malachy, the Third Secret of Fatima, Nostradamus, all of the nonsense about 2012, for something sensational,
    but what if it is just something simple?

  3. The Third Secret of Fatima and the Book of Revelation:
    George Noory interviews Fr. Gruner on Coast to Coast AM
    Bertone, Sister Lucy, May-October 1917, The Third Secret, chastisements, Revelation 12:4, Padre Pio, the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, “Conspiracy of Silence” about Fatima among modernists, communication with Sister Lucy’s sister, 45% of the Cardinals on his side on Fatima at one point, criticism of Vatican II, Gruner in Garabandal in 1965 (claimed: because the secret of Fatima not revealed in 1960), punishment of bad priests, the prayer of consecration, “If my requests are granted, Russia will be converted…”
    “It’s not just about the Vatican.”
    “The worst chastisement of all is bad priests.”
    Noory asks about “earth catastrophes” and natural disasters.
    1973 Akita prophecies.
    The 2013 Conclave.
    Noory: “Will you be in Rome for the conclave?” (Gruner in Rome)
    Caller asks about The Shoes of the Fisherman and the Catholic Church as the “last moral authority left.” He appeals for a spiritual revival of the Church.
    Gruner has “never been told not to speak about Fatima.”
    Bellarmine on papal authority, hypothetical about a bad pope at the Council of Florence.
    Noory asks about the Antichrist.
    Gruner on St. Pius X who thought the Antichrist had already been born.
    Belief that the Antichrist was alive in the 1400s.
    The Great Apostasy (begins at the top). If the Apostasy has already begun.
    Intercession of the BVM: Fr. Gruner responds to caller, defends teaching on intercession as not contrary to scripture.
    “The Pope would have much to suffer.”
    “a network of sinful priests undermining the work of the Vatican”
    Noory: “Do you think the Catholic Church is going to crumble?”
    Gruner: “No.” (power of the Holy Spirit)
    Communism and Secret Societies.
    The Conclave and Papal Election.
    Benedict giving lectures to curia.
    Caller asks about “Peter the Roman” from St. Malachy.
    Gruner: “I wouldn’t vote for a man just because his name is Peter.
    They’re placing bets in Ireland on who is going to win…
    They want someone who has more energy. Hopefully, the next pope understands to clean house.”
    Caller asks about Russian Patriarch and the teaching of religion in Russian schools.
    Mary as salvation of Russia.
    Noory: “Why didn’t Lucia leak the information about the Third Secret?”

    “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
    May 1952: (still waiting for consecration)
    Consecration of David in the Old Testament
    1940: “Ask the Pope to consecrate the world.”

    No, little bucakroo. No. The only SANE way to have rendered your prose would have been…

    “It was Father Z’s blog and I stopped reading right away – PERIOD!!!!!!!”

  5. Pope Francis presents Russian Icon of the Madonna to Benedict


    “Francis also brought a gift for Benedict, an icon of the Madonna. ‘They told me it’s the Madonna of Humility,’ Francis told Benedict. ‘Let me say one thing: When they told me that, I immediately thought of you, at the many marvelous examples of humility and gentleness that you gave us during your pontificate.’ Benedict replied: ‘Grazie, grazie.’”

    But who were the “they” who told Francis that the icon was the Madonna of Humility?

    “They” were… the people who gave the icon to him. But who were those people?

    Well… they were representatives of the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, who sent the icon to Pope Francis as a gift, and who handed it to Francis three days ago, on March 20.

    How do I know this?

    Because a few minutes ago I received an unexpected email from Metropolitan Hilarion, 46, an old friend who is also the “Foreign Minister” (the term isn’t quite accurate, but it suggests the importance of his work and position) of the Russian Orthodox Church’s Moscow Patriarchate, so, the right-hand of Patriarch Kirill. He wrote:
    “Pope Francis presented to Pope emeritus Benedict the icon which had been presented to Pope Francis by Metropolitan Hilarion on behalf of Patriarch Kirill [the head of the Russian Orthodox Church] after the private audience [with the new Pope] on 20 March. Отправлено с iPhone [Sent from iPhone]“

    So the icon was the Russian icon Hilarion gave to Francis three days ago!

    I wrote back: “Amazing. Are you pleased, or upset?”

    I added: “It is reported here: ‘They spent 45 minutes talking alone. Pope Francis gave Pope Benedict an icon of Our Lady of Humility, saying that when he received it, he immediately thought of giving it to Pope Benedict.’”

    Hilarion wrote back: “Very pleased and touched.”
