Prophecies of St. Malachy
The overriding value of the present little volume is twofold: These prophecies are extremely accurate, and there are only four more, after Pope Paul VI, yet to be fulfilled (according to the prophecies) before the end of time. Mr. Bander has compiled her an inestimably valuable tract in the field of prophecy because those of St. Malachy fit beautifully into a pattern woven from the various saintly prognostications, the sibylline oracles, quasi-secular and folk predictions and biblical prophecy. This pattern becomes highly discernible upon reading other of the current works on Catholic prophecy. The present volume, in adding weight and credence to the prophecies of St Malachy, at the same time further develops and substantiates the picture we gain from other sources about the times we live in and the events, it would be seem, we are about to witness.
