Lumen in cœlo (Light in the Sky)

Lumen in cœlo (Light in the Sky) is the motto that St Malachy attributed to Pope Leo XIII. Proponents of the prophecies have attempted to link this motto to Leo XIII by interpreting it as a reference to the star on his arms. However on his coat of arms there’s a comet not just any star. A comet certainly is a bright light in the sky. The three kings followed the bright light in the sky that announced the first arrival of the Saviour. But what did the comet have to do with this Pope? Did he get a glimpse of what is to come? The answer might lie in his vision, and his coat of arms is simply a reference to the future.
2013 is definitely a year of lights in the sky. Read more here.
