Am I a Pessimist

To strongly believe the prediction below will come to pass?

“I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison, and his successor will die a martyr in the public square.  His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the Church has done so often in human history.”

- Francis Cardinal George

I had heard the first part of the quote before and have repeated it to others in conversation.  But I was not aware of the second half.  Bravo, Cardinal George, spot on.  Perhaps I am, ultimately, an optimist.
