Some Spanish Wizard Predicted the New Pope's Name a Few Hours Before the Previous Pope Resigned

In his sleep, no less.

According to a tweet sent out by Yolanda De Mena of Madrid on the morning of February 11th, her boyfriend Alejandro Rodriguez woke her up very early that same day and told her he had just had a dream about a new Pope named Francisco I.

A few hours later, Pope Benedict XVI resigned his post, and, two months later, a new pope named Francis I — Francisco I among Spanish speakers — was installed in his place.

De Mena's tweet began spreading around Twitter today, amassing tens of thousands of retweets in a matter of hours.

The incredible prognostication propelled Rodriguez to international fame, as several media outlets in Spanish and South America picked up on the massive "spoiler."

In between interviews, De Mena and Rodriguez have been battling a slew of Twitter users claiming they somehow made the whole thing up.

But, as The Daily Dot notes, the date is right there, and there is no way to alter a tweet once it's sent out.

Unless, of course, you're a wizard, which Rodriguez has already proven himself to be.
