I find this comment rather bizarre. Good for a laugh perhaps, but I really hope nobody believes them! (The legend of Pope Peter II being the last pope as St Peter was the first is a very old one but no more sensible for that.)

I am in the process of attempting to respond to the first 1000 results in a google search for 'Peter the Roman', the final pontiff in the St. Malachy prophecies. Total results are over 3 million. Yet, the prophecy given in 1139 A.D. was in virtual obscurity for over 400 years until the invention of the printing press. In the computer age there has been a resurgence in the interest of the list of names.

Even Nostradamus spoke of 'Peter the Roman' in Century VII, #24.
