1967 Italian film footage of suffering pontiff Gregory XVII, ("Siri") making a MANDATORY (by his captor's will) public appearance. NOTE: The holy Catholic mystic Marie-Julie Jahenny, who related many aspects of the Hostage Pope's hidden papacy, had it revealed to her the means by which the Enemy would achieve its stealthy incarceration (sede impediti) of Christ's Vicar: "Arms recently invented will be taken up; day and night they will encamp around his prison." (March 13, 1878) And on August 10, 1880: "If the prisoner martyr (Pope) directs a call (for help), it will be forbidden, under pain of torture and death, for any kingdom to rush in response to his call."

Pope Gregory XVII Implementing Continuance of Papacy Plan, June 15, 1988, Rome 


This historic photograph was taken by Fr. PKVT on June 15th, 1988 (see time stamp on lower right corner) at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome, documenting the third clandestine meeting Fr. PKVT (and his team) had with the suffering Pontiff, foretold by Our Lady at Fatima. Pope Gregory XVII formulated/implemented a detailed Continuance of Papacy Plan from 1988 to 1989, which included creating Bishops (with canonical mission jurisdiction) & Cardinals.


[NOTE: The following excerpt explaining the absolute importance and necessity of jurisdiction from a (TRUE) POPE, 

is from the scholarly work: "Supplied Jurisdiction According To Canon 209, An Historical Synopsis And Commentary", 

By Fr. Francis Sigismund Miaskiewicz, J.C.L., Article II. The Supplying of Jurisdiction, pp. 21-22, 1940, Imprimatur]


"To protect the faithful against deception and to assure them of competent and worthy ministers, the Church has ever insisted, and still does insist, that those who are to minister unto the faithful in the name of Christ and of the Church, must first receive the approval and authorization necessary."

(Fr. Miaskiewicz on the Church's wisdom requiring Her ministers to FIRST have jurisdiction to act.)



"In virtue of Christ's commission the plenitude of ecclesiastical jurisdictional power lies in the hands of the Church. This power ... implies action and direction, be it legislative, judicial or coercive. It comprises the public power in virtue of which the Church is assigned the task of leading men back to God. With all this power at her command, the Church is left to her resources to marshal that power in whatever way may best serve her in attaining her one purpose on earth: the common salvation of mankind. Thus, speaking in the realm of possibility, one can readily admit that the Church could have granted vaster powers of jurisdiction to each and every priest, or she might have limited the number of acts demanding special power and authorization for their valid performance.


"He who enters not by the door into the sheepfold, but

climbs up another way, is a thief and a robber" (John 10:1.). 


But such a lenient manner of action, though it might seem very desirable in a particular emergency, never enjoyed the approval of the Church. Her divine wisdom and her age-old experience has made her an ever more jealous stewardess of her Christ-bequeathed power. Dealing with men, with all their foibles and weaknesses, with their need of strict sanctions to help them along the path of probity and justice, the Church has found it necessary to be very careful in allowing others to share in her power. To protect the faithful against deception and to assure them of competent and worthy ministers, the Church has ever insisted, and still does insist, that those who are to minister unto the faithful in the name of Christ and of the Church, must first receive the approval and authorization necessary for the valid and licit performance of jurisdictional acts. She requires that they prove themselves worthy of the signal honor and capable of performing all the obligations and duties incumbent upon the minister of the Church. In a similar way, to warn the faithful against the insidious poison of some unholy practices, the Church finds it necessary to withdraw certain sins from the power of the ordinary priest to absolve (like the mortal sin of attempting to consecrate a bishop without a papal mandate which can only be absolved by the (TRUE) Pope (IF HE WANTS TO), Gregory XVIII. -TCW). Thus, it is readily seen how all these formalities, conditions and rules are prompted not by any other reason but by the deep concern that the Church has for the good of her faithful. [...]


The matter of jurisdiction, then, is very important. First, the necessity for it supplies the Church with strict sanctions against usurpers and incompetents. The possession of it is important also for the priest who, in acting without it, would not only posit invalid acts, but would run afoul of the rigid sanctions of the Church and of God. Finally, it is especially clear how important the use of it is to the faithful and what a great loss it would be for them to approach a priest adjudged to have faculties to absolve, confess and then upon their confession depart not knowing that they were still unabsolved." (End)



"he who is elected is Pope other act is required to give him further authority."


"When all that we have thus far described has been done [the precise laws of a conclave have been followed], he who is elected is Pope, in all right and justice, and no man can in any way call his election in question or endeavor to invalidate it. He governs the Church from that moment, and no other act is required to give him further authority. ("The Life and Acts of Pope Leo XIII: Preceded by a Sketch of the Last Days of Pius IX and the Origin and Laws of the Conclave, p. 201,1879 Imp)



Gregory XVII, "The Hostage Pope", was put under the gravest of threats (duress) 

from the day of his Divine election, until the day he was killed, 30 years later


There is indisputable evidence that Gregory XVII fought the V2 sect's new religion - as his own priests in Genoa for years testified. He told his priests not to say the new mass. He said the decrees of the Second Vatican Council could "never bind". Logically the True Pope de jure, Gregory XVII, could only make such a statement [declaration] if the V2 Council documents LACKED papal jurisdiction (Church Authority) - which they incontrovertibly did.


Some say "but he recognized the antipopes". Yet, Pope St. Martin I, who recognized Antipope Eugene I, did not cease being pope [forfeit his office] as he, like Gregory XVII, was put under grave duress, by the Church's enemies.


 Pope Gregory XVII repudiated the acts of Antipope John Paul II  
as "an idolatry of apostolic works." (G. MacEoin, The Inner Elite, p. 234)
There are numerous quotes showing that Pius XII's hand-picked successor, Gregory XVII, despised Roncalli and all of the post-conciliar false claimants and their V-2 cult


Right reason alone, resolves these absolute contradictions, from this Genoan genius, who so loved Holy Mother Church.
In a near miraculous type moment, out of view from the ever present and threatening masonic handlers, he was able to express the horrific fact that his jailors could, "kill", him "at any time!"
 St. Thomas Aquinas on whether violence (duress) causes involuntariness?
"I answer that, Violence is directly opposed to the voluntary, as likewise to the natural. For the voluntary and the natural have this in common, that both are from an intrinsic principle; whereas violence is from an extrinsic principle And for this reason, just as in things devoid of knowledge violence effects something against nature; so in things endowed with knowledge, it effects something against the will. Now that which is against nature is said to be unnatural, and in like manner that which is against the will is said to be involuntary. Therefore violence causes involuntariness." ("Summa Theologica", VI. Fifth Article) 
"Cardinal Mindszenty Tortured For 29 Days And Nights" 
"Shortly before his arrest he (Cardinal Mindszenty) wrote a note to the effect that he had not been involved in any conspiracy and any confession he might make would be under duress." (Read More)
(The Montreal Gazette, Dec 6, 1956) 
"Hungary's Cardinal Mindszenty was tortured by Red secret police for 29 days and nights before his trial on treason charges in 1949 he disclosed in an interview published tonight. 
The Cardinal said he was stripped, beaten for days on end with a rubber hose, kept in a cold, damp cell to irritate his weak lung; forced to watch obscene orgies, and questioned without sleep throughout the entire period. When he collapsed, he was revived immediately to deprive him of rest, but no drugs were used to make him confess to trumped-up treason charges at his trial, the Cardinal told interviewer ... published in Look magazine ... 'I will present to the world my own record of the unspeakable brutality practiced on me, which is beyond the imagination of a normal human being' the Cardinal was quoted as saying."

Prophecy of St. John of the Cleft Rock (14th c.) 


"Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."

DISCOURSE ON ALMS By Fr. Alban Butler:

"CHARITY obliges us to afford our neighbour the succour which he stands in need of for his corporal and spiritual necessities. The latter indeed are of far greater importance, of a superior order, and extending their efforts to eternity. ... There is no duty, no obligation, whether in the law of nature, or of the gospel, more evident or more universally agreed on than the precept of alms; yet so strange is the blindness of avarice, that there is scarcely any precept more transgressed, nor any law which men more shamefully study to elude and misconstrue. Yet the neglect or violation of it is a crime that entails eternal damnation on a soul, and is punished in a particular manner above other sins, with a subtraction of the divine graces and benefits in this life." ("Meditations And Discourses On The Sublime Truths And Important Duties Of Christianity", page 147, 1840 A.D. Imprimatur)


  The Church: "has ... the right to conceal herself in the catacombs" 
"Now the Christian concept of the Church and of Divine Providence tells us that God 'who loves nothing dearer than the freedom of his Church' (St. Bernard), thus shaped events that the freedom of the Head of the Church should be made secure by his Temporal Power". 
' ... the Temporal Power of the Pope is at the present time not only useful but necessary for the liberty of the Church.' Necessary, because the Church has not only a right to live, but also the right to live free and unmolested. Necessary, because she has not merely the right to conceal herself in the catacombs, under the surveillance of a Questor, by the grace of the State, but she has the right to show her everlastingly youthful, beautiful and venerable countenance to all people! Because she has not merely the right to pass by the palaces of the mighty in the ragged garb of a poor servant maid, a beggar imploring a place of shelter, but she has the right to pass majestically through human society, a royal personage with power to command and a gracious blessing for all, a queen adorned with that royal crown which the eternal King placed on her brow when he purchased her, on the Cross, at the price of His Precious Blood!(Rev. Mgr. Joseph Sehroeder, D.D A.C. Quarterly Review, Vol XVII, PHILADELPHIA: HARDY & MAHONY, 1892

"Within a short time, daughter, only a few priests will be left, who will obey the luminous voice (The Pope in Exile) which is in command of all men on earth, as the Chief of the Holy Church."

"The enemies of the Pontiff, hungering for blood and avenging, in their hatred and raging, have written above his head, while being Father to so many souls, this word:

'We shall notch our swords upon those men whom we want to saw apart and break off'.'

It was only one cry resounding throughout Heaven:

"Lord, save the Pontiff from the mortal dominion of the avengers of his life!"

"Shortly", the Blessed Virgin went on, "my Son will strike with scourges this city (usurped Rome) where ungodliness spreads out from day to day. Fresh sacrileges will be performed, profanations stirring up indignation among the people. The enemies of the Church will decide about new crimes, which will have pious hearts bleeding out."
Revelation of Our Lady on October 27, 1884 that only a few Catholic priests (i.e. those with 1. canonical mission from the True Pope in Exile) would be left to provide True Sacraments (like the Eucharist/Confession) during this, The Apostasy. Also it talks about the Masonic V-2 Sect's Antipope's Planned Destruction- raging in usurped Rome (October 28, 1958 - Present). Source: "Prophecies of La Fraudais of Marie-Julie Jahenny", pages 146-147. (1.) CHURCH AUTHORITY. Those who are received into the ecclesiastical hierarchy are not chosen by the people, or by secular authority, but are placed in the degrees of power of orders by sacred ordination. In the supreme pontificate the person lawfully elected, and freely accepting the election, receives the power of jurisdiction by divine right. All others receive jurisdiction by canonical mission (Canon 109, 1917 Code of Canon Law).

Image of Blessed Angela of Foligno Receiving the Second Person of the Trininty in Holy Communion


Quotation from St. Charles Borromeo on the proper external observances we are to have when receiving Holy Communion wherein he says women are not to receive Holy Communion with painted faces: 


"The faithful should draw near to the body of the Lord with all reverence and humility, and so receive it. They should not have distractions of the eyes, not stare in the face of the priest; but they should look reverently at the consecrated Host, holding the Communion-cloth under the chin, the head raised moderately, the tongue resting on the under lip, not protruding the tongue, nor drawing it in till the priest has placed the Blessed Sacrament upon it. Then they should humbly bow the head, and not give way to audible sighing. The hands should be crossed on the breast, according to the ancient custom in the Church, or they may be joined together. Those who can afford it should appear in a mantle, but not in decorated bonnets trimmed with feathers. All warlike weapons should be laid aside, and the whole condition of the body should be humble, respectful, and cleanly. Women should not wear extravagant, showy clothing, nor have their hair fancifully dressed, nor have their faces painted (wear make up). They should not presume to come with half-clothed necks, or wearing transparent veils; they should so dress that all except their face be covered. All should receive the sacred Host on their knees, and not leaning clumsily on the altar-rail." (From, "The Means of Grace" by Fr. Richard Brennan, LL.D., Published by Benziger Brothers: New York, 1894 pp. 184-185. Imprimatur) 



The following incident regards the conversion of the famous 19th century French actress *Eva Lavalliere (see her story below -ED). Here is the account of how she gave up cosmetics, which she realized are not pleasing to Our Lord


"The habit of cosmetics persisted with Eva long after she surrendered her soul to grace. But one day, reading the 'Life of Blessed Angela of Foligno,' she came across the words of Jesus:

'For all your paint, your perfume and your coquettish treatment of your face, I have expiated. For them I suffered the buffets that distended and deformed my countenance and the spittle that poisoned my nostrils with its stench...'

That settled it! 'Light the fire,' she ordered her companion. And presently powder, lip-stick and rouge were in the flames, never to figure in Eva's life again. Thenceforth she could boast: 'Nothing touches my face but soap.'"(From "Handclasps with the Holy," Fr. Edward E. Murphy, S.S.J., "The Catholic Literary Guild", p. 245, 1941)


*Eve (also called Eva) Lavalliere 1866-1929

A True Catholic penitent (see her story below):



Not technically a convert, Eve Lavalliere (real name Eugénie-Marie-Pascaline-Fenoglio) was born into a violent family. Her alcoholic father eventually killed her mother and Eve herself escaped only narrowly.


Gaining an entry into the world of the Parisian stage, Eve became very rich and completely abandoned herself to a debauched life. Her conversion came about through the influence of a country priest.


"Her [Eve Lavalliere's] most ambitious dreams were now realities. She had fame and wealth and the power that comes with the possession of both. Managers of other theatres clamoured for her services. As a comedienne she was unique, for she had gaiety, freshness, vitality, and intense feeling, combined with a tenderness both appealing and naive. She never “acted,” she lived her parts, hence the perfect naturalness of her interpretations. Her admirers were not only those belonging to the theatrical world. Her reputation for wit and her gift of repartee made her popular with writers, politicians, and cultured people of all kinds. She was sought after by the greatest in the land; royalty asked to be introduced to her and she received them as equals and refused to be patronised. She had her full share of “temperament,” and many stories are told of her capriciousness. [...]


Her popularity increased rather than waned with the years. Her wealth was enormous, both from her theatrical earnings and from her friends and admirers: She had a sumptuous flat in the Champs Elysees, decorated and furnished in the latest fashion which included concealed lighting—then practically unknown, and a room furnished in polished ebony with purple hangings. Eve hated the room and privately thought it hideous; but it was good publicity so it had to remain. To get away from it, she took another flat in Auteuil and spent most of her time there. Her days were crowded now with social functions in addition to her work at the theatre, for she was always in request and no fete was complete without her.


Yet her disillusionment was increasing with every year. She had tasted all that the world could offer her: fame, wealth, excitement, admiration; all her dreams had come true. And she saw the emptiness, the hollowness of worldly success. “Even when I was at the height of my success,” she said years later, “I used to leave the stage victim to sadness I cannot describe.” And again: “A voice seemed to follow me everywhere saying: "Eve, you weren‟t made for this sort of thing,‟ and sometimes I despaired even to the point of wanting to commit suicide.” (Excerpts from, the 1936 Imprimatured "A Saint Of The Stage Eve Lavalliere" By Charlotte Kelly. CLICK to Read Full Text)

Some Quotations of Eve:


“All my being and all my will are turned toward this last end: to love God, Who loves me so much in spite of my past and present miseries.”


Towards the end of her life, Eve suffered a great deal from medical ill health (having long before given away all her wealth). The following exchange took place between Eve and a Parisian journalist:


"Do you suffer a lot?"
"Yes, horribly," she responded.
"Have you any hope of being cured?"
"None. But I am so happy! You cannot imagine how great my happiness is."
"Even with so much suffering?"
"Yes, and because of it. I am in God’s hands. Tell my friends of days gone by that you met the happiest person on earth."


On her gravestone, she had the following words written:


“I left everything for God; He alone is enough.

O Thou Who didst create me, have pity on me.”



Eve Lavalliere (1866-1921)


Eternal rest grant to them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. Amen. 
May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.



"Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy."
(Promise #6 of the 12 Promises of The Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque)


"Do Not be Discouraged"


(P. 78, "The Sacred Heart: anecdotes and examples to assist in promoting the devotion to the Sacred Heart", 1899, Imprimatur)


"Blessed Angela of Foligno had many difficulties to encounter after her conversion. The worldly life she had formerly led had taken such deep roots that it required great efforts on her part to destroy them. Satan not only suggested to her that she would not persevere in her conversion, but that it was foolish for her to impose such an impossible task on herself, for which she would be blamed by every sensible person. In the midst of this battle and anguish of soul she at once had recourse to God, begging of Him to come to her assistance.


One day, whilst thus praying for help from God, she fell asleep and dreamed that she saw Our Lord, who said to her: "In this Heart all is truth and there is no shadow of an untruth in it." At first she did not understand the meaning of this, but later on Our Lord showed her how faithfully He keeps His promises of helping those who invoke Him. "Oh," said He to her, "what have I not suffered, especially for the sins of thy heart! It was in all things opposed to God s commands, filled with anger, envy, sensuality, a seething sea of sinful feelings and passions. This is why I allowed My Heart to be pierced. From this Heart comes that healing power which removes every evil from the human heart. Water flowed from it, to extinguish the flames of concupiscence, and blood streamed down to take away sorrow." Thus did Our Lord console her and prepare her for fresh encounters, and it was through her devotion to and trust in the Sacred Heart that she succeeded in gaining the victory and attaining to the highest degree of perfection." (End)



"To know oneself and to know God, that is the perfection of man; without this knowledge, visions and the greatest gifts are of no account." -Bl. Angela of Foligno
