"In the week that followed the publication of this article ("The Pope: Could He Be Cardinal Siri?", July 1986), Monsieur de Franquerie received two phone calls from
Rome, proving that even a small highly confidential review was read at the Vatican. Correspondents wanted to know if the article was serious, that, Monsieur Franquerie of them confirmed.
The article was later translated into English, German, Spanish, Italian and distributed everywhere... ." (L’Eglise Eclipsée

The Editor of TCW, and all
True Catholics, owe an incredible amount of thanks
to the *Marquis de la Franquerie, and his distinguished colleagues, for their truly ground breaking interview with "Cardinal Siri" (Pope Gregory XVII) on May 18th, 1985. That providential meeting paved the way for today's True Papal Restoration Campaign - whose sole goal is to visibly restore Pope Gregory XVII's worthy successor, Pope Gregory XVIII, to his lawful Throne.
la Franquerie was a French Royalist. In 1926 he was appointed editor-in-Chief of the Church Approved magazine, the International Review of Secret Societies. He was made a chamberlain by His Holiness, Pope Pius XII, and was a noted expert at exposing
Freemasonry. Hence, he was both greatly respected, and also feared, by certain prelates in his time. It was this background/clout that enabled him to gain access to the hostage pope, in Genoa, that fateful day in May.
Provided below is the account of that historic May 18th, 1985 meeting, recorded by one of the eyewitnesses present, Monsieur Luis-Hubert
Remy. It is important to note that Pope Gregory XVII, in clandestine meetings with traditional Catholic clergy in June 1988,
would further reveal that he was elected pope, accepted the office, and chose the name Gregorius XVII at the October 26, 1958 Conclave. And related that his masonic captors could kill him at any time. (Less than eleven months after these secretive June 1988 meetings, Gregory XVII was dead).
