A 22-year-old Spanish man's prophetic dream last month reportedly helped him predict the election of Pope Francis and the resignation of the pope emeritus.

Alejandro Rodriguez de Cabo's girlfriend, Yolanda De Mena, sent out a tweet the morning of Feb. 11 detailing her boyfriend's holy 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.

The tweet, which some have dubbed "the biggest spoiler in the history of mankind," was posted at 6:06 a.m. ET, just as news was breaking worldwide that Pope Benedict XVI was resigning.

It's possible de Cabo and De Mena could have heard the news about Benedict's resignation before the tweet was posted, but it's the Francis portion of the premonition that really has people worldwide dumbfounded. How could anyone have predicted Jorge Mario Bergoglio would be named Pope Francis a month before it actually happened?

"There's no way to have altered the tweet to add Francis's name," the Daily Dot said. "It was either a lucky guess, or a prophetic dream about the new pope."

The tweet has since become a viral social media sensation, with more than 90,000 re-tweets, and has gained international attention.

"Thanks to those who wish me well and to approach it with humor, it also made me laugh," de Cabo tweeted March 13. "Good night!"
