Some rumors circulating that Pope Benedict is too weak to say mass.
The 35+ years of chastisements will start after the TWO Popes die:
"I didn't see, I don't see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; two shaky, servile, doubtful popes" Mélanie
However, as was said before, there may be signs prior to the death of the first pope of the two popes.
Since the Great American Eclipse on 21 August there have been many strange and terrible events.
These events may indicate that Pope Benedict will soon die. These events may also indicate that pope Francis may die as well sometime before 21 August 2018.
If both popes die before 21 August 2018 then we can pinpoint the start of the 35+ years of chastisements and that would be 21 August 2017 the day of the great American Eclipse.
Also the strange and terrible events that the world has witness these last 44 days may increase as we get closer to the death of one of the two popes.

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
