And then even after Antichrist falls:

'After Antichrist has been slain by lightning on Mount Olivet and his death has been made widely known through out the world, this our earth will exist for forty-five more days; I do not say years, but days. This is clearly to be seen in Daniel (12:11) : "And from the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination of desolation shall be set up, there shall be one thousand, two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh unto the one thousand, three hundred and thirty-five days."

The Doctors say that these forty-five days will be given by God for the conversion of those who have been seduced by Antichrist, but Antichrist will have left behind him so great riches and pleasure that hardly any of the nations will be converted to the Faith of Christ. For there is no savior but Christ, and yet they will not be converted.'

St. Vincent Ferrer

The last part is what makes a great impression on me now, as it speaks to me how destructive material pleasures and entertainment are towards both our salvation and greater happiness forever in Heaven.

Light and smoke, dust and ashes.. Light and smoke, dust and ashes.. All these things.. Then one thinks about them contrasted with true, lasting goods. The beauty of virtue, of deeds down in Christ, for the love of God.. their lasting good memory here and in Heaven.

Interesting. What would you recommend for someone who would like to get into Catholic prophecy?

What you say about going to the source material first makes a lot of sense. People can't seem to agree on what a person "really" meant by what he said. This has been my frustration with history. So much of it only serves as a tool to promote one agenda or another.

For what little it's worth, hmm, I think for a beginning you might consider for yourself some of the following books. I wouldn't choose simply one, what flaws one has, will then be balanced out by the other and the prayerful discernment necessary. This isn't an endorsement but these are some of the likely best possibilities for you to consider because of all the sources quoted and general use.

Yves Dupont, 'Catholic Prophecy'
Rev. Culleton, 'The Prophets and Our Times'
Desmond Birch, 'Trial, Tribulation & Triumph'

The last book is the newest and I think one that gets folks comfortable with prophecy who aren't to some degree, for what it's worth.

I prefer recommending books entirely by saints but in response to your question the above, may you discern which may be good and may they do you good I pray. I have read of each of them but not entirely another reason why I hesitate.  Cheesy

               No Pope ever took the name of Peter.   
                Would a Pope consider it improper to assume the same title as Peter, the Rock the church would be built on?

Can a cardinal be chosen as Pope if he is not among the cardinals in the conclave?

In 1334 on the first papal ballet all the cardinals voted for the same person. Thus Pope Benedict XII was elected.

In 1269 the election of the Pope took so long (three years) that the city where the conclave was held, Viterba, refused to send anything except bread and water.

The papal election followed the demise of Pope Clement IV. At the demise of Pope Clement IV   
there were twenty cardinals in the Sacred College. One cardinal (Rodolphe of Albano) was absent   
throughout and died during the vacancy. The other nineteen cardinals participated in the election of 1269.
