On May 20th, 2016 Italy's largest MSM (Mainstream media) newspaper, "la Repubblica",  wrote a supportive article on the Siri Thesis - which even cited the Holy Father's pontifical name, Gregorio XVII, in it. You can read the full article, "Non Habemus Papam", il cardinale Siri e quella misteriosa fumata bianca ("Do Not We Have A Pope: Cardinal Siri and that mysterious white smoke") at the following link: -ED

Prophetess & Stigmatist, Marie-Julie Jahenny of Brittany (on left), photographed receiving a
revelation from heaven (c. 1930). Notice how she is absolutley oblivious to those around her.


The holy Catholic mystic Marie-Julie Jahenny, who related many aspects of the Hostage Pope's [Gregory XVII] 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 (*atomic weaponry? -EDwill 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."


*TCW obtained U.S. Department of State declassified secret documents which repeatedly report Pope Pius XII was virtually convinced the United States government intended to use an atomic weapon against the Vatican. It was reported he (Pius XII) literally had recurring nightmares of such a scenario, and cited that Pius XII believed a key reason the US Government did (1.) not have an ambassador physically at the Vatican  - and no formal diplomatic relations, was that indeed the (masonic) US Government was planning an atomic attack on the Vatican State itself.


(1.) Between 1951 and 1958, the United States had no official representative (whatsoever) accredited to the Holy See.

Ember days are four separate sets of three days within the same week — specifically, the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday — roughly equidistant in the circuit of the year, that are formerly set aside for fasting and prayer. These four sets of Ember-Weeks are the fasts of the four seasons.


The Ember-days (so called from the custom of our forefathers: fasting on those days in sackcloth and ashes, or from their eating nothing but cakes baked under the embers) are Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of the first Week of Lent, of Whitsun-Week (Pentecost-Week), of the third Week in September (after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross – September 14), and of the third Week in Advent (after the feast of St. Lucy – December 13). The spirit of the Church is to engage her children, at these stated times, to pray, fast, and perform such other good works, as may prevail with God to furnish his Church with good Pastors; Saturday in Ember-Week being the appointed day for ordaining and consecrating persons to the Sacred Ministry. We are likewise to beg God’s blessing on the fruits of the earth, and give him thanks for those we have already received.


Nature of Fasting & Abstinence on Ember Days:

Ember Wednesday - Fasting & Partial Abstinence.

Ember Friday - Fasting & Complete Abstinence.

Ember Saturday - Fasting & Partial Abstinence.

The relief above the main doorway of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, depicting
Christ giving the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven to the first Pope, St. Peter.


Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my Church 
(St. Matt. xvi. 18)

The Church of Jesus Christ, inasmuch as it is a society, 
a kingdom divinely established, should have a Head. 
Her invisible Head is Jesus Christ Himself; her visible 
Head is our Holy Father the Pope. 

Who is the Pope? The Pope is the successor of St. 
Peter, the Vicar of Jesus Christ and His representative 
on earth, the Pilot of the bark of St. Peter, the visible 
Head of the Church, and the common father of all the 

We say the Pope is the successor of St. Peter. By 
making the Apostle St. Peter the foundation-rock, the 
corner-stone, of His Church, Jesus Christ promised him 
successors until the end of time. For this immovable 
rock implies that Peter will be the perpetual Head of 
the Church, and will be ever necessary to sustain and 
govern her
. But how will Peter always govern the 
Church, being mortal as the rest of men? How will he 
yet govern her after his death? By his successors, 
who will be the heirs of his power, of his privileges, and 
also of his apostolic spirit. Peter, as say the fathers, is 
ever living, and will always live, in the person of the 
 whom Christ promised him in these words: 
Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my Church, 
and the gates of hell shall not prevail against her. 

The promise of the Saviour has been fulfilled: Peter, 
having fixed his Pontifical See at Rome, has had as suc- 
cessors all the Roman Bishops or Pontiffs who have oc- 
cupied his See in the course of the ages down to our day. 

History unfolds to us this incomparable succession. 
It is a chain of gold held by the hand of Jesus Christ
Its first link is Peter, and we behold gloriously reigning 
the two hundred and fifty-ninth in the person of the 
august Leo XIII. After him the chain shall continue to 
lengthen until its final link is reached; that is to say, 
until the last Pope, who shall end his reign with the con- 
summation of the ages. 

This unbroken series of successors of St. Peter pre- 
sents us men who differed in name, in time, in character; 
but they all occupied the same See, and held in their 
hands the same keys, which were committed by Jesus 
Christ to the Apostle St. Peter. In other words, they 
taught the same doctrine, possessed the same power and 
privileges; insomuch that if the Prince of the Apostles 
were to return in person to exercise the Pontifical au- 
thority, his powers and privileges would not differ from 
those of the august Leo XIII., the actual possessor of 
His immortal heritage. 

The Popes may die; the Papacy neither dies nor 

Let us thank God, my brethren, for having founded 
His Church on the indestructible rock of the Papacy
and let us always have the greatest reverence and love 
for our Holy Father the Pope, the successor of St. Peter.

Not too long ago, the well-known Italian magazine Chiesa viva (which did so much in the 1970's, in the exposing of the detailed Freemasonic career of "Cardinal" Achille Liénart), published a four page article on Gregory XVII, Fr. Khoat and Gregory XVIII. It also quoted TCW (In Today's Catholic World) oft in the piece. Let's pray that the editorial staff of Chiesa viva leaves all the phony traditionalists behind, to indeed board the Barque of Peter, outside of which there is positively no salvation. Provided for our readers is a copy of the Chiesa viva N°482, May, 2015 article, "Gregorio XVII il Papa nascosto e prigioniero" (Gregory XVII the Hidden and Prisoner Pope). -ED

Hi Mary, due to the generousity of the True faithful, we are very close to the goal of being able to provide for a priest to stay on the East Coast of the US for 3 to 6 months, who will offer True Sacraments to the Underground Church.
