Pope Francis the Worthy Shepherd



"By about twelve years shall the millennium have passed when the resplendent mantle of legitimate power shall emerge from the shadows where it was being kept by the schism. And beyond harm from the one who is blocking the door of salvation, for his deceitful schism shall have come to an end. And the mass of the faithful shall attach itself to the worthy Shepherd, who shall extricate each one from error and restore to the Church its beauty. He shall renew it." 
Blessed Tomasuccio de Foligno


...Forty years ago it was prophesied, and there have been many visions to the same effect, that there will be a pope in these times who will purify Canon Law and the Church of God from the sophistries and deceits of the jurists so that justice will reign over all without the rumbling of lawsuits. Because of the goodness, truth, and justice of this pope the Greeks will return to the obedience of the Roman Church, the greater part of the Tartars will be converted to the faith, and the Saracens will be destroyed. There will be one flock and one shepherd, as the prophet heard (John 10:16)...
(Taken from Roger Bacon's The Third Work. Trans. by B McGinn Visions of the End (New York, Columbia, 1998) p190)


It would seem that the first prophecy definitely refers to Pope Francis as the Pope elected 12 years after the Millenium year. He is the Worthy Shepherd.

It would seem that Pope Francis is also stressing the spirit of the law rather than a legalistic interpretation of Canon Law and may be the Pope referred to by Roger Bacon or he may be preparing the Church for the Pope who will ultimately fulfill this prophecy.
