St. Malachy was a holy man. However, the Prophesy of Popes attributed to him have been proven to be a hoax. The Church rejects them.

I will point out codex vaticanus was also lost much like the prophecy of st. Malachy, only codex vaticanus is believed to be from the 4th century yet is still believed to be authentic. The prophecy was carefully examined before it was published. It all boils down to what is said in the movie "the song of Bernadette", "for those who believe in god, no explanation is necessary. If you don't believe in god, no explanation will suffice."

I'm usually a little skeptical when it comes to unapproved apparitions and private revelations. The problem with St Malachy's is being able to account for the authenticity of its source.. Writings that all of a sudden show up in a library, that was not accouned for, for several hundred years raises some yellow flags. Even if it can't be rejected just on this lack of accounting, it certainly can't be accepted by ignoring this important detail. Besides all that, the selection of Pope Francis being the last Pope doesn't seem to jive with the prophecy.
