Brazil (Aug 27, 1968): “Showers of blood and scraps of meat fell from 5-7 min over an area of 1km2 between Cocpava and São Jose dos Campos[II.32].

The chronological order is: 1) John XXIII (28 October 1958 to 3 June 1963), 2) Paul VI (21 June 1963 to 6 August 1978), 3) John Paul I (26 August 1978 to 28 September 1978), 4) John Paul II (16 October 1978 to 2 April 2005), 5) Benedict XVI (19 April 2005 to present).
- The Coat of Arms of Pope John XXIII, the leopard, was identified in VI.20.

- A very interesting quatrain about Popes that is worth to be re-written from its English translation, V.56:
After the death of a very old Pope, will be elected one to Rome of good age. It will be said of him that he weakens the [Holy] seat, but he will cling to it with long and stinging effort.
The reference “old Pope” was associated with John Paul II by 1985. As an effort to provide an intellectual guess in 1985, the author added that “According to Malachy the next Pope shall be one characterized by the word “Olivarius”, of the olive branch, a word that for Nostradamus contemporaries would have meant a Benedictine monk”. Strikingly, the current Pope (# 265th), elected in 2005, was proclaimed Benedict XVI (Wikipedia Reference: Latin: Benedictus PP. XVI; Italian: Benedetto XVI; born as Joseph Alois Ratzinger on April 16, 1927 in Marktl am Inn, Bavaria, Germany). (Is 78 a “good age”?)
- The indication that “there will be two main candidates for the papacy, one Spanish and one French, when the Church is going badly, “trembling Ship”.

- The “creature who will originate WWIII, the devastation of which is beyond even the prophet’s (Nostradamus) descriptive ability”[II.2, I.70, V.27, IX.73, V.86]. The prophesy mentions the “The overthrow of the Shah of Persiaa (exile and death in Egypt) by a man who would sit plotting against him in Paris; the man in white, the man of the White Turban, living in France, would return to inflict an era of cruelty upon Persia quite incomprehensible to the West. He in turn will then be removed from power by a mysterious figure designated only as “Perse”, the man of blue, the Persian”. This man was supposed to be in his thirties during 1985, “a man of consuming ambition, another Hitler, and one without whom the world would be a better place”. He is supposed to be related to two other un-identified men: Alus and Mabus, whose “intentions toward the world are wholeheartedly evil”. “Somehow these personalities may nurture and educate the antichrist”. (a:Wikipedia Reference: The Persian Empire was a series of historical empires that ruled over the Iranian plateau, the old Persian homeland, and beyond in Western Asia, Central Asia and the Caucasus. The Persian empire has become what we know today as Persia or more commonly, Iran). “It is not unreasonable to link the white leader with the Ayatollah Khomeini”. There are “two fascinating possibilities as to the name of the third antichrist of Nostradamus’ prophesies”; the names Mabus/Alus may be an anagram of his name, whose gift may be nuclear fallout[II.62]. The appearance of these personalities is associated with the appearance of the Halley comet, which came close to Earth during 1986 and will return in the year 2061.
- The “Ayatolla’s reign dissolves rather suddenly into a confused end, partly due to Russian interference, the oil crisis, and the final arrival on the scene of Perse. Russian influence is possibly indicated here, and posiibly Iraq.

- The apparent prediction of the events that occurred in New York city during September 11, 2001 appear in VI.97:
The sky will burn at 45 degrees. Fire approaches the great new city. Immediately huge, scattered flame leaps up. . .
The author in 1985 stated that “the state of New York lies between the 40th and 45th parallel in the U.S.A. Here is a staggering coincidence. The attack appears to be very widespread, covering both the state and the new city, and the scattered flame may well be that of a nuclear holocaust. Also, X.49 appeared to refer to NYC:
Garden of the world, near the new city, in the road of the hollow mountains. It will be seized and plunged in the tank, forced to drink water poisoned with sulphur.
The phrase “hollow mountains” was associated with skyscrapers. The word “tank” was translated from the word “Cuve”. It is worth to observe that what really brought down the Twin Towers were the thousands of gallons of jet fuel that the flights were carrying in their fuel tanks.
- “Mabus will soon die and then there will be dreadful destruction of people and animals. Suddenly vengeance will be revealed, a hundred to hand, thirst and hunger when the comet (Halley) will pass”[II.62].
