But there is one 12th-century sage with a lot to say about what's going to happen as we enter a new Millennium. His name is St Malachy and he made some startling predictions about the future of the Catholic Church. If he's to be believed, we can expect two more Popes and Rome's decline and fall. ——————————————————————————————————1/8—— By Jonathan Donald COMP: WIN A TRIP TO LAPLAND p108 Index News 2000 Claire Youth

As he looked down on the city, he fell into a trance and began reciting Latin verse taken down by a scribe. It ended in 111 mottos and a concluding coda about the line of Popes to come before Judgment Day. It predicts only two more after John Paul II. ——————————————————————————————————2/8—— WIN a trip to Lapland 108 TAKE THE ULTIMATE BOAT TRIP p108 Index News 2000 Claire Youth
