1557 Lyon Du Rosne

La grande pesche viendra plaindre, plorer,
D’auoir esleu, trompés seront en l’aage:
Guiere auec eulx ne vouldra demourer,
Deceu sera par ceulx de son langaige.

The great fish will come to mourn, to shed tears, 
For being elect, he will be trumpeted during his lifetime: 
They wilt not want to die alongside him, 
By those of his language he will be deceived.

Consider this lament, “I asked to become excellent at what I did: I did not ask to become famous,” George Harrison, Beatle. What of those who have become famous yet are not excellent? Pop personality Sir Jimmy Savile who was used as a go-between by Buckingham Palace in negotiations with the estranged Princess Diana (See the Nostradamus Quatrain II 14  DIANA-LIKE) once warned that people would speak badly of him after his death, adding “I’m not a straight punter”.

A further consideration is whether Michel de Nostredame meant OF ‘esleu/élu/élire’ meaning that which is excellent or perfect or a state officer appointed by the King or ‘he who is chosen by vote to perform a dignified function’ or else the notable one opted for/a high one appointed following a vote. Michel often appears to be a dedicated Monarchist, which would favour someone who is ‘elect’ rather than an elected post-holder but he excelled at understanding the future mores which framed his prophecies, so maybe not. The Catholic Pope is and was an exception, of course, as his election is/was totally occulted (covert).  OF ‘tromper’ means either to blast a trumpet or to mislead a person inducing them to error.

Generally this is the Great Fish himself,  surrounded by folk of other lands, widely recognized as ‘the elect’ in his lifetime, alongside whom a death-cult will recant their loyalty, who is now wrong-footed by the very ones who ‘speak his language’.


A famous one of the Sign of Pisces, possibly the deffrayer of our karmic debts, who is not recognized in his own homeland. Brought down by those who wrongly feel they are familiar with ‘him and his type’ and who are spurred to malicious acts by a rivalrous resentment. End of his story?


A Pope regrets being elected. Like all Popes his way is trumpeted as he passes through the rich pageant of papal history. Is he hiding something? When he ‘dies’ there are others who do not want to ‘go under’ with him. Could they push him under the wheels so as to limit somehow the damage to their own reputations?

The only state in the world where Twenty First Century vending machines have instructions written on them in Latin and that has Latin as its official language is the Vatican. The more enthusiastic Vatican officials will conduct routine telephone conversations in Latin.

Here is the simultaneous post today on

Penultimate Pope Benedict XVI, the man who knows so much, announces his resignation, an extremely unusual event indeed. Is the Church dying?

Has the first of a sequence of near-global bubbles burst in line with the predictions of Malachy?

As Cardinal Ratzinger he was appointed a senior official of the Vatican/CDF by Pope John Paul II and was pressured, we are told, to ‘minimize’ the damage to the Roman Catholic Church by the increasing number of pedophilia allegations; an action that has not yet finished. This sometime funnelling of filthy cloth through the laundrymaster who is now the retiring Papa could serve to leave many wets insufficiently hung out in public to dry and by extension all sorts of power positions on the planet may still be occupied by the unworthiest of the unworthy. Is pedophilia mainly an occulted group activity supported by the upper echelons of the rulership of this globe and their private or encrypted communication grids?

Cardinal topics in the last Vatican year have also hinged around the Donum Vitae funding of abortions and the mooted introduction of a ‘lay democracy’, therefore admitting ‘political correctness’ to Vatican decision-making together with equality of influence for saints and sinners alike. What would Jesus say? (Follow me! probably)

It seems there will be a deliberate papal hiatus until a 117-strong conclave reviews nominations in the Sistine Chapel. The Pope’s brother, Georg Ratzinger, has said that “Where he’s needed he will make himself available” from the papal residence at Castel Gandolfo (via some R and R at a cloistered nunnery) when he officially leaves office at the end of February. Is his successor to be a Vatican greenhorn or a blanc-bec religieuse?

Papal resignation was legitimized by Pope Celestine V in 1294. It proved most dangerous for the old retiree.
