Peter the Roman?

Which still contradicts what our Lord said. We have to be ready for the Judgment Day any second.

No, I'm afraid you got it mixed up. Jesus said that many things had to first happen before the end of the world. As for being ready day or night (because the Lord comes like a thief in the night) it means that you or I could die any moment. Tomorrow there are thousands of people who will die in freak accidents.  Tonight there will be thousands murdered. Two minutes from now thousands will die of a heart attack or stroke, etc.

As for THE end of the world, Jesus explained that there had to be many events preceding it:

“Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.  When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.” Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven..."


So the list of 112 popes does not contradict anything.
