A Pope Son
So, I will stand at the side of another son, a human son, whom I will lift up to the papacy. No one will doubt who it is. I will not let him stay in the shadows (even though at present he is covered with the greatest of shadows and is hidden in my heart). I will bring him forth for all to see. He will acknowledge completely that I alone have lifted him up to the papacy. I will put my seal upon him. He will act only in my name. He will have a Marian papacy, rooted totally in my promises, especially in the words that I spoke at Fatima. With this pope, the Age of Mary will come to its total height and will forever be upon the lampstand until the end of time.
Hidden But Promised
When this is accomplished, all the light and power which I have placed in the hearts of many come to fulfillment. When I fulfill this promise, those who have pushed aside my devotions will see their foolishness. I say to all, “Pray for this pope son of mine. He is hidden deeply in my heart because I want nothing to harm him. Pray that all the startling events take place so that he is raised aloft. In him the nations will rejoice”. - Messages from Locutionist shared by Spiritual Advisor Monsignor Essef
It doesn't exactly coincide with my shower prediction... BUT!
But seriously, I truly was thinking the next pope would have some connection to Fatima. Which is why I thought of Bertone. Quite seriously, the locutions cited are interesting, don't you agree? So is the German calendar cartoon.
I've given up trying to figure it out.

Art: Oddly enough, a comic illustration published in a German calendar back in 2011 seems to have predicted Benedict XVI's abdication. The illustration, made available to you above, states that the Pope would resign/quit his job after winning the lottery, exclaiming: “Holy straw sack! Tomorrow I quit!” Source. [Needless to say, Vatican spokes-models were quick to deny that is why he resigned.]

One more serious locution from Monsignor Essef's spiritual directee:
Now I will come to the central point so there will be no mistake. The Cardinals will meet to elect a pope but an extraordinary intervention of God will occur that will alert the whole world to the special nature of this office. They will seek to discern this intervention, to grasp what is the will of God, but everything will not be clear at first. Some, however, will speak in divine wisdom and the search will begin to find the one whom God wants to raise up. He will not come forward at first, even though he knows that he is chosen by God. He will wait until the discussion is concluded and the Cardinals are settled. Then new manifestations will occur which will signal clearly the one whom the heavenly Father wants as his Pope. This will be a complete surprise to the world and to the Church but not to the one upon whom the mantle falls. This is my chosen son, the one whom I have picked. I want all of this to happen in a startling manner so the world and the Church know that this one was chosen by heaven, by God and not by men. He will be prepared because I will have prepared him. He will be the pope of Fatima and bring to fruition all of the gifts of Fatima, just in time to prepare the Church and the world for the Satanic onslaught. - Source
"He will not come forward at first..."
What could that mean? Someone outside the College of Cardinals? Someone not available until after the Lenten Retreat at Sea Cruise?
