St. Malachy was a bishop in 12th century Ireland, and many miracles are attributed to him during his lifetime. But his alleged vision of the future popes---if he even had one---may not have been well known for centuries. And even if it was, it doesn't mean everyone would have believed in them. And even if they did, they would not have any way of possibly knowing how long it would take to get through the list of popes. In the first years of Christianity many popes reigned for very short periods because they were constantly being killed.

We do know that St. Malachy was real and that he is a canonized saint. What we don't know is if those prophecies were actually from him. But there are other things that many Catholics give credence to even tough there is not much evidence that it actually happened.  As for the veracity of the prophecies of St. Malachy, it seems to me that there are just as many facts surrounding his vision than there are about the vision Pope Leo XIII who formulated the St. Michael prayer after a vision he had of Satan being loosed in the world. Many Catholics believe the story of Pope Leo XIII's vision, even though there aren't any solid and authoritative sources for the event even taking place. However we do know that Pope Leo did formulate the St. Michael prayer, and we can assume he had a good reason for doing so.

As for the list of final popes, we know it has existed for centuries. But a good question would be to ask, why would anyone would come up with such a long list of popes stretching far out into the future in the first place?I suppose that question has many answers too.

But trustworthy prophecies originating in the 20th century abound; for example, the visions of Fatima warning about the future unfolding of history, and the visions of St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy.

In 1934, according to St. Faustina's diary, Jesus said:

You will prepare the world for My final coming. (Diary 429)  Tell souls about this great mercy of Mine, because the awful day, the day of My justice, is near. (Diary 965). I am prolonging the time of mercy for the sake of sinners. But woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation. (Diary 1160)

So, according to the Diary, the time of mercy has been prolonged---meaning that we are already in borrowed time?
