The key to the discovery of the name of the next pope, who will be the last, is contained in the deciphering of the code of Benedict’s new mass. In Marginality: Fiction without Fiction I decoded the “tain” of the mass and found a model of the HIV virus and the AIDS disease being used to make the church unholy, at least in the new English translation. Part of the decoding had to do with the RNA and DNA at the heart of the rewriting. I spent several days researching what the DNA could mean in other terms, other than in the writing and rewriting, for I felt it held a clue. And it does. Reading the Book of Daniel was instructive. There it is said to Daniel in

The point of life is to arrive. To arrive means to acquire the stability and openness necessary to be receptive to the grace of God that completes us in this life and fulfills us in the life to come. The arrival can be seen at both the level of the individual and of what we loosely term the “culture.” It is necessary as individuals to prepare one self by several means. First, we must think outside the temporal dimension, into the eternal, the fourth that completes the dialectical past-present-future. Second, one must escape from the bind of the dichotomy of necessity and fantasy to achieve freedom and reality, through work and through love, combined as one act. Third, one must put aside the idea that deconstruction is viable. It is the projection of death or self-destruction into a form of logic that paralyzes thought and transforms it into an endless indefinite series of manipulations of the written word. Fourth, one must be willing to learn substantially, not cognitively. To learn substantially is to be what you believe. Knowledge that does not lead to such transformation is not wisdom but only information. Words, because they are based in the Word of God, have the power to transform us substantially, to transubstantiate us, in a way similar to our transformation by the reception of the Eucharist. The word too is Spirit and Life. Those in the Catholic Church are afforded the grace of transubstantiation through the body and the blood, but also through the Word. Those outside it have the Word alone, but that is the one thing necessary now.

one of his visions that there are seven kings, five are gone, one now reigns, and then one more, who will be for only a short time. I believe the one now reigning is Benedict. To find the name of his successor I studied a list of the names of the members of the College of Cardinals. I looked for men with the letters DNA in their names. There are about a dozen. Two seem the most likely candidates, Cardinal Angelo Soldano, the Dean of the College of Cardinals, and Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the Archbishop of the Galveston-Houston diocese in the United States. Obviously, both contain the letters DNA in their names. In the method of anti-reading or the reading of the tain that I used to break the mass code in Marginality Parts 1 and 2, which I learned from James Joyce and Jacques Derrida, the study of the names of these two cardinals reveal many strange things of an evil nature, which I will be

Fifth, one must learn limitation. We must limit ourselves in order to arrive, not only ourselves but our creations, logic, economy, direction. One must go straightly, toward the goal, in a restricted economy through a limited dialectic, not a general economy of textuality. One must make something true and good and useful for the building up of others, not to merely enjoy, or for aggrandizement, or honors, or place. Sixth, one must learn to give, give until it hurts, as Mother Teresa said. Such giving can be hard to do, but only, for instance, by giving up the notion that I already am the way I am meant to be, can I be transformed into what God wants me to be. There is much that must be given up in order to arrive. As long as our desires and passions lead us around by the nose, our preconceptions and prejudices, our inclinations and fantasies, we will continue to live in the world phantasm. Seventh, we must tell the truth. We must not lie. We must not tolerate the abuse of truth by a culture that is in denial regarding such things as abortion and other lesser crimes against the person. We must love the truth. We must get to know ourselves, the truth about ourselves and be honest with ourselves, with God, and with one another. In doing these things we may find ourselves ready. And readiness is all. Ripeness is all, for the day comes, the hour comes, and one must be prepared for it, as individuals, as a culture, as a church. If one is transformed before that great day, before the apocalypse, personal or communal, one may welcome Christ rather than cry out to the mountains to fall and cover us. The study of moral beauty I once wrote drew a precise map of how to get to the place of arrival, but presented itself as a kind of disclosure of that arrival, in addition to its descriptions and declarations. Something took place in me in the writing of that book and I believe in the writing of this current one that I believe may do the same for you as it did for me. In both the logic and the poetry, and the revelations of the apocalypse, arrival actually happens.

analyzing over the next installments of this work. In the Book of Revelation, the tribe of Dan was the only one of the original twelve tribes that was not sealed in chapter 7. That led Hippolytus and others to speculate that the antichrist would come from the tribe of Dan, and some popular presentations have depicted the false prophet, for instance, as Jewish. He is not. The last pope, who will preside over the end of the Catholic Church, is a cardinal now serving it, I believe, in either Rome or Houston. That he is a freemason is probable. That one of the key words from the mass of deconsecration, anal, found in the code, is in his name, is one of the things I have discovered. That I abhor having to study and write these things is sure, but that I am doing it for Jesus Christ is more sure, as well as the fact that I am doing it for the Church. May God forgive all who hold and teach the Catholic Faith.

While I have presented programs for the reform of dialectical thinking, and of deconstruction, and most of all for the reform of the Catholic Church, something else was occurring. You, the reader, and I, did not simply communicate, but commune, because gathered around the word of truth, next to God, with our attention directed to the light of revelation, withdrawing from our worldly pursuits, raising our minds to things not of this world, that it does not perceive, because it cannot consume them. To be transformed is not to consume but to be consumed. Transubstantiation is the key. As long as only accidents are changed, ideas or opinions exchanged for other ones, the substance has not been altered. By giving you, hopefully, a new way to think, a new logic, which is really not of this world, I gave you a new form. I transpose the idea of the new man from the letters of Paul, of being transformed by the renewal of the mind, into my writings, that were more than mere criticism or poetry. Through the transformation of the texts on which I wrote, when I wrote of other texts, I may have brought about another transformation in you and in me, in the church and in the world. That we must change most agree on, but that we can change is something we almost despair of today. I think if you want to arrive at a better word, a better church, a better you, I say be creative, be thoughtful, give, be honest, have a critical faith that believes and thinks in eternal terms, turned away from judgment, to love, from destruction and deconsecration, falsehood and denial and fantasies, to the work of reality, to make a church and world to be. Why should we wait? All are called. All have the vocation. To arrive means to be what you are meant to be, what God intends each of us to be. It is not always obvious, as my work witnesses. Our arrival is seen in our readiness for completion and fulfillment, to prepare for the coming apocalypse, soon, so we may one day rejoice, as we cast out fear by perfect love.
