Antipope Nicholas V (a.k.a. né Pietro Rainalducci)
Nicholas V was an Antipope in Italy from May 12, 1328 to July 25, 1330 A.D.
Historical Precedence: There have been more than 40 anti-popes in the History of the Church yet, "the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it., (Matt. 16: 18-19) Note: the Catholic Church, who alone has the Divine Right to interpret Sacred Scripture, teaches that the specific words in this passage, "the gates of Hell", mean, "The Death Dealing Tongues of Heretics."
St. Francis of Assisi Warned about this Specific Era of Darkness
Catholic Prophecies Regarding this Epoch from St. Francis of Assisi and Others:
St. Francis of Assisi (1182-1226 A.D.): "The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.... Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held
in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but
a destroyer." (Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi, Washbourne, 1882 A.D., p. 248)
1500 Year Old Prophecy Fulfilled by Antipope Paul VI
The Prophecy of Premol (5th century): "...And I see the King of Rome with his Cross and his tiara, shaking
the dust off his shoes, and hastening in his flight to other shores. Thy Church, O Lord, is torn apart by her own children. One camp is faithful to the fleeing Pontiff, the other is subject to the new government of Rome which has broken the Tiara (See picture of anti-pope Paul VI Breaking the Sacred Tiara). But Almighty God will, in His mercy, put an end to this confusion and a new age will begin. Then, said the Spirit, this is the beginning of the End of Time."
Antipope Benedict XVI
An Incontrovertibly Iniquitous Imposter
Conclusion Reiterated: With a concrete certitude, John Paul II was an usurper and antipope; as is the current highjacker of Church property and killer of souls, an usurper and antipope (Benedict XVI). In regards to "obeying" imposters like JP2 and Ben16 as Christ's Vicar, the virtue of obedience commands a faithful Catholic to reject frauds like Wojtyla & Ratzinger. In fact, His Holiness, Pope Paul IV's infallible document Cum ex Apostolatus Officio (1559 A.D.) instructs Catholics: "... to avoid them [False Shepherds] as warlocks, heathens, publicans, and heresiarchs...". Thus in today’s terribly trying times, a True Catholic must doubly pray, while obeying and holding to all the more firmly the Sacred Deposit of de fide (The Faith) and Perineal Magisterial Teachings, which these Vipers and their brood have knowingly and gleefully trampled underfoot for more than 45 years now.
St. Henry, Holy Roman Emperor, Defeated an Antipope in 1014 A.D.
In the beginning of the 11th century, His Holiness, Pope Benedict VIII was driven from Rome by a usurping antipope named Gregory VI. However, with the temporal aid of King Henry II of Saxony, Pope Benedict VIII was restored to His rightful papal throne in 1014 A.D. King [Saint] Henry was crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Benedict VIII in the same year. This Brave Catholic Monarch (St. Henry), did not hesitate to wield his power to protect the Divine Rights of Holy Mother Church. St. [King] Henry was a staunch defender of papal property and territories and often went into battle for the sole purpose of not only protecting these lands, but adding to them, as so great was his devotion to the papacy.
We (the small flock of True Catholics remaining) must not despair, as these specific menacing times of apostasy and apathy we are in the midst of, have been predicted/prophesied for centuries (i.e. Our Blessed Lord, His Mother and His Saints have in their charity forewarned us, so as to exhort us to practice caution and vigilance.)
We (the small flock of True Catholics remaining) must practice the virtue of hope and pray and act, which includes to not forego the use of temporal force [arms] as Catholic Kings and Princes and their subjects with God's Full Benediction had benevolently and dutifully provided Holy Mother Church with [temporal force], when She (The Church) has been grievously afflicted and assailed by Her sworn enemies, such as well reinforced anti-popes usurping Sacred Church (God's) property, in "days past".
We (the small flock of True Catholics remaining) do have hope, as several trusted Catholic prophecies predict a Lawful, True and Holy Pope will come in the (near?) future. Please see (below) just one of the many Catholic prophecies, which eludes to this sorely needed and forthcoming reality:
Brother John of the Cleft Rock (14th Century): "Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. *At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."
(*Note: the webmaster believes that the following two sentences in Brother John of the Cleft Rock's 600 year old prophecy cited above: "At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile." -pertain to, and were fulfilled precisely in the suppressed pontificate of Pope Gregory XVII [formally Cardinal Joseph Siri] who was the lawfully elected and only Pope of the Roman Catholic Church from 1958 to 1989.)
Also please note: there is some evidence that His Holiness, Pope Gregory XVII may have chosen a successor.
This aspect of History is still yet unfolding.
Please pray for the repose of her soul.
