Alejandro Rodriguez predicted new pope Francis I before Benedict resigned

Huffington Post has published the tweet from Alejandro Rodriguez’ girlfriend announcing his dream that the new pope would be named Francis.

Here’s more from the report:

A 22-year-old man in Madrid apparently predicted who would be the next pope last month — just a few hours before the pope emeritus announced his resignation.

Alejandro Rodriguez de Cabo’s girlfriend, Yolanda De Mena, sent out a tweet on Feb. 11 claiming that earlier that morning her boyfriend had awoken with a strange premonition.

“My boyfriend woke up last night at 4 a.m. saying he had dreamed of a new pope called “Francis I” and Benedict resigned today,” the message read.Around the same time De Mena posted that tweet, news of Pope Benedict XVI’s shocking resignation pronouncement began circulating around the globe. And this week, the second half of Rodriguez’s remarkable “dream” came true, as the papal conclave selected Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now known as Pope Francis.
