Back in September 28th, 2008 TCW posted three stanzas and an article about a rare 400 year-old book of prophecies in Latin called Nova Roma, written by a monk named Fratris Joannis Lucenciani.
Here, presented for the
first time online, is a stanza which clearly connects the name Siri with a Suffering Holy Father.
Sirius est sidus. Ceciditiam pulvere tectum
Lumina et auriculas claudere
Papa nimis patitur, ''Quid agit?'' Patitur, Nihil ultra
Heu, si papa foret, tandem aliquando ageret
The translation is as follows:
Sirius is a star. It has already fallen into dust. It continues to cover the eyes and ears in the ground [or with earth/soil] The pope suffers
exceedingly, “What does he do?” He suffers, there is no greater suffering. Oh! if the pope were to be, if he finally, at any time, were to act [Or, alternatively: Oh! May the pope be, may he finally act].
In analysing the translation, we find a prophetical reference to the exiled [sede impediti] papacy of Pope
surely refers to Siri, who has fallen from the sky; that is, his rightful place in the firmament, or Church Hierarchy.
Since Sirius is the brightest star in the heavens, it represents the Pope. However, the prophecy narrates that the Star, the True Pope, is hidden, covered with dust, or "eclipsed", (as Our Lady foretold at La Salette), so that it/He cannot be seen or heard.
that he cannot be seen or heard, he suffers exceedingly and cannot escape from his place “in the ground” or “under the soil”. For that reason, he can do nothing directly and his suffering is intense, like never before experienced, by
Tu es Petrus
And of course, God removes obstacles for the Pope to act at last. Our Blessed Lord tests, yet could never abandon His
Church, and His faithful Pope acts in accordance with His Will.
On June 14th, 1988, after a 30-year papacy in exile and pain, Gregory XVII meets a providential priest, Fr. Peter T. He knows that this is his opportunity to act.
Unbeknownst to the jailer "secretary" Mario Grone, meetings take place and
plans for Papal Succession are made.
Deo Gratias! Habemus Papam!
of the True Successor of St. Peter Released!"

"Universal Testimony of The Fathers on Underground Church"
"Official List of Popes of the Roman Catholic Church"
Vatican Council in 1870 infallibly stated that St. Peter HAS (not will have) perpetual successors. The pertinent quotation is found in Denzinger #1825: Si quis ergo dixerit,
non esse ex ipsius Christi domini institutione seu iure divino, ut beatus Petrus in primatu super universam ecclesiam habeat perpetuos successores; … anathema sit.”
= he has (present tense—subjunctive because it follows dixerit according to sequence of tenses). Future tense (he will have) = habebit. He must have = debeat habere. Habeat then equals has, not must have or will have.
Perpetuus, a, um:
• Cassell’s Latin-English and English-Latin
Dictionary: (peto) continuous, uninterrupted, continual. I. a, of space, munitiones, Caes.; oratio, Cic; carmen, Hor.; b. of time, unbroken, continuing, lasting, perpetual; ignis Vestae perpetuus ac sempiternus, Cic; questiones, composed of a standing
body of judges, Cic; interpetuum, for ever, Cic. II. universal, general; jus, Cic. (Also see) • Second Latin, Scanlon and Scanlon: perpetual, everlasting, unfailing; in perpetuum, forever.
"It follows that, although the hands of blind or wicked men may rob the Church, may pluck the crown from the Pontiff's
brow, may drive her prelates into exile or death, may destroy and defile her sanctuaries, may persecute her children and massacre them by thousands, yet her faith, planted by the Son of God on earth, will
gloriously shine and endure to the end of the world."

the Family and More Advanced Students in Catholic Schools and Colleges.")
"It is necessary for salvation that all the faithful of
Christ be subject to the Roman Pontiff."
(V Lateran Council)
