"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 [an objective/factual news account], that, Monsieur Franquerie of them confirmed.
The article was later translated into English, German, Spanish, Italian and distributed everywhere...

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.
*Marquis de 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.
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).
