Book I: Of His Prophetic Revelations
Chapter XI: Colca
Colca, however, returned to the saint, and remained with him for some days, and then asking about the end of his own days, received this answer from the saint:
"In thine own beloved country thou shalt be head of a church for many years, and when at any time thou happenest to see thy butler making merry with a company of his friends at supper, and twirling the ladle round in the strainer, know that then in a short time thou shalt die."
What more need I say? This same prophecy of the blessed man was exactly fulfilled as it was foretold to Colca.
