CARDINAL GIUSEPPE SIRI (POPE GREGORY XVII)
(above - "by their fruits you shall know them"
The Siri Thesis contends that actually Cardinal Siri was elected pope after the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958, but the newly-elected Pope (Gregory XVII, formerly Cardinal Siri) was threatened, prevented from taking the Papal Chair and replaced by Roncalli (John XXIII). In 1958 during the Conclave, the Houston Chronicle held a picture on the front page with the Conclave news on one side, and the picture of the hydrogen bomb on the otherside proof indeed that the enemies of the Church were threatening Siri with mass destruction if he took the Chair of Peter. Pursuant to this thesis, all of the apparent 'popes' after Pope Pius XII were/are bogus, as Siri was the true pope.
Siri died in 1989 and is said to have passed on the true pontificate to an as yet unknown successor, who will emerge in due time after the eclipse of the Church predicted at LaSalette has come to an end. It was a suppressed pontificate in the person of Cardinal Joseph Siri of Genoa, who was canonically elected in 1958, but immediately overthrown, and was intimidated into keeping silent about his status (as were his cardinals) for 31 years.
The anti-popes who replaced Siri did away with the true Mass and sacraments. No true pope could ever have done such things. That the obscuration of the pope was the prerequisite step for taking away the Mass seems to have been foretold by Melanie Calvat, one of the young seers of La Salette apparition of Our Blessed Mother. Our Lady of La Salette declared to Melanie: "The Church will be in eclipse." "Eclipse" means hidden; covered up; seeming to disappear. The Holy Scriptures say: "Where there is Peter, there is the Church." Melanie understood that Peter would be hidden along with the Church, and that his "eclipse" would be a prelude to the disappearance of the Mass. For, in commenting on this part of the secret, Melanie said to the French Abbot Combe, "The Church will be eclipsed. At first, we will not know which is the true pope. Then secondly, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will cease to be offered in churches and houses; it will be such that, for a time, there will not be public services any more. But I see that the Holy Sacrifice has not really ceased: it will be offered in barns, in alcoves, in caves, and underground." (Abbot Combe: "The Secret of Melanie and the Actual Crisis", Rome, 1906, p.137.)
"Therefore when you shall see "the abomination of desolation" which was spoken of by Daniel the Prophet (Daniel 9:27), standing in the holy place (he that readeth, let him understand) then they that are in Iewrie, let them flee to the mountaines...." Matthew 24:15-28
ANNOTATIONS BY THE DOUAY FATHERS, 1582, FOR THE ABOVE QUOTE:
"" . . . the abomination of desolation foretold, was partly fulfilled in diverse profanations of the Temple of Jerusalem, when the sacrifice and service of God was taken away. But specially it shall be fulfilled by Antichrist and his Precursors, when they shall abolish the holy Mass, which is the Sacrifice Of Christ's Body and Blood, and the only sovereign worship due to God in His Church . . . By which it is plain that the heretics of those days will be special fore-runners of Antichrist." (Matthew 24:15 - "Annotations," The New Testament, 1582, The English College of Rhemes, John Fogny, page 71)
The Will of Christ Jesus
Therefore, if anyone says that it is not by the institution of Christ the Lord Himself (that is to say, by divine law) that blessed Peter should have perpetual successors in the primacy over the whole Church; or that the Roman Pontiff is not the successor of blessed Peter in this primacy:let him be anathema. (Vatican Council 2,5)
<<B>The Siri Thesis
Bella V. Dodd spent a good deal of her prime adult years working for the Communist Party in America. During the 1930's and 1940's she worked diligently for the Communist cause in America while she taught school, participated in Unions, practised law and involved herself in politics in order to bring socialism upon the country. In the early 1950's she became disillusioned by the lie of Communism, broke with the party, and was instructed in the Catholic Faith by none other than Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. She was baptized by Bishop Sheen in April of 1952.
At that time she gave lectures to expose the satanic scourge and testified that:
"In the 1930's, we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within."
"Right now they are in the highest places, and they are working to bring about change in order that the Catholic Church will no longer be effective against Communism."
She also said that the changes would be so drastic that in 10 years, "you will not recognize the Catholic Church."
Manning Johnson, a former official of the Communist Party in America, gave the following testimony in 1953 to the House Un-American Activities Committee:
"Once the tactic of infiltration of religious organizations was set by the Kremlin... the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through infiltration of the Church by Communists operating within the Church itself. The Communist leadership in the United States realized that the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions and the religious make-up peculiar to this country. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available to them, it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen in the paths conducive to Communist purposes."
Further on in his testimony, Mr. Johnson pointed out the grim fact that:
"This policy of infiltrating seminaries was successful beyond even our communist expectations."
The Siri Thesis
Precisions on the Great Disaster (from Catholic Catholic Prophecy by Yves Dupont)
St. Matthew 24:39: "And they did not understand until the flood came and swept them all away."
"..The Church is persecuted; the Pope leaves Rome and dies in exile; an anti-pope is installed in Rome; the Catholic Church is split, leaderless and completely disorganized..."
Pius IX - "There will be a great prodigy which will fill the world with awe. But this prodigy will be preceded by the triumph of a revolution during which the Church will go through ordeals that are beyond description."
From St. Malachy: De Mediatate Lunae (From the Midst of the Moon", often translated, "From the Half of the Moon"). The biblical symbolism of the "moon" is "the worldly kingdom" or the temporal order." This Pope may therefore be elected from the midst of cardinals who are mainly influenced by worldly ideas (social gospel, etc.), or he may be elected at a time when the forces of Satan (the "Prince of this World") have virtual control of the entire earth via their secret government, possibly even influencing the papal election, so that an agent of the world antichrist government is elected Pope."
De Labore Solis ("Of the Labor of the Sun"). This is the same symbol of that of Apocalypse 12:1-5, of a woman clothed with the sun in labor to give birth to a son, who subsequently rules the earth with "a rod of iron." H.B. Kramer, interpreting the Apocalypse in his Book of Destiny, maintains this figure represents a highly disputed papal election (dispute = labor; woman = Church; sun = light of divine truth).
St. Pius X - "I saw one of my successors taking to flight over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in disguise somewhere; and after a short retirement he will die a cruel death.
Pius XII "We believe that the present hour is a dread phase of the events foretold by Christ. It seems that darkness is about to fall on the world. Humanity is in the grip of a supreme crisis.
Old German Prophecy. "...The doctrine will be perverted, and they will try to overthrow the Catholic Church..."
Nicolas of Fluh "The Church will be punished because the majority of her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until she will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, she will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters."
Ven. Bartholomew Holzhauser (17th Cent.) "The fifth period is one of affliction, desolation, humiliation, and poverty for the Church. Jesus Christ will purify His people through cruel wars, famines, plague epidemics, and other horrible calamities. He will also afflict and weaken the Latin Church with many heresies. It is a period of defection, calamities and extermination...
46.3. "During this period the Wisdom of God guides the Church in several ways: 1) by chastising the Church so that riches may not corrupt her completely; 2) by interposing the Council of Trent like a light in the darkness, so that the Christians who see the light may know what to believe, 3) by setting St. Ignatius and his Society in opposition to Luther and other heretics; 4) by carrying to remote lands the Faith which has been banned in most of Europe.
46.6 "During this unhappy period, there will be laxity in divine and human precepts. Discipline will suffer. The Holy Canons will be completely disregarded, and the Clergy will not respect the laws of the Church. Everyone will be carried away and led to believe and to do what he fancies, according to the manner of the flesh.
46.7 "They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of the law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments. As a result, no principle at all, however holy, authentic, ancient, and certain it may be, will remain free of censure, criticism, false interpretation, modification, and elimitation by man.
46.8 "These are evil times, a century full of dangers and calamities. Heresy is everywhere, and the followers of heresy are in power almost everywhere. Bishops, prelates, and priests say that they are doing their duty, that they are vigilant, and that they live as befits their state in life. In like manner, therefore, they all seek excuses. But God will permit a great evil against His Church: Heretics and tyrants will come suddenly and unexpectedly; they will break into the Church while bishops, prelates and priests are asleep. They will enter Italy and lay Rome waste; they will burn down the churches and destroy everything."
51.1 (Nursing Nun of Bellay, 1810-1830) "Once again the madmen seem to gain the upper hand! They laugh God to scorn. Now, the churches are closed; the pastors run away; the Holy Sacrifice ceases."
51.2 "Woe to thee, corrupt city! the wicked try to destroy everything; their books and their doctrines are swamping the world. But the day of justice is come...
52.2 (Jeanne le Royer, Sister of the Nativity) "I saw a great power rise up against the Church. It plundered, devastated, and threw into confusion and disorder the vine of the Lord, having it trampled underfoot by the people and holding it up to ridicule by all nations. Having vilified celibacy and oppressed the priesthood, it had the effrontery to confiscate the Church's property, and to arrogate to itself the powers of the Holy Father, whose person and whose laws it held in contempt."
53.1 (Ven. Anna-Katrina Emmerick) "I saw also the relationship between the two popes. . . I saw how baleful would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city )of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness...
53.2 ""Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the secret sect, while storms were damaging it.
Comment: Many prophecies predicted an anti-pope and a schism and apostasy.
53.3 "I saw a strange church being built against every rule. . . No angels were supervising the building operations. In that church, nothing came from high above. . . There was only division and chaos. It is probably a churchof human creation, following the latest fashion, as well as the new heterodox church of Rome, which seems of the same kind...
53.4 "I saw again the strange big church that was being built there (in Rome). There was nothing holy in it. I saw this just as I saw a movement led by Ecclesiastics to which contributed angels, saints and other Christians. But there (in the strange big church) all the work was being done mechanically (i.e., according to set rules and formulae). Everything was being done, according to human reason...
53.5 I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and opinions. There was something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it, and they seemed to be very successful. I did not see a single Angel nor a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of a cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: 'Do build it as solid as you can; we will put it to the ground.'"
Comment: Two different churches seem to be indicated in this passage. First, a puppet church set up by the Freemasons, and a "strange church" comprising "all sorts of people and doctrines" (perhaps in the name of Ecumenism), which will follow modern trends. This church is "unholy and humanistic," but it is Communist inspired, but it is the perfidious who would want to pull it to the ground. It is a new church claiming to be the true Catholic Church, if two popes are elected at the same time which they were; one false, one true. Some prophecies seem to warrant the inference that the true Catholic Church will disappear completely for a while as an organization, but, although disorganized, it will survive in the persons of the faithful members of the clergy and laity who will go underground.
53.21 "Among the strangest things that I saw, were long processions of bishops. Their thoughts and utterances were made known to me through images issuing from their mouths. Their faults towards religion were shown by external deformities. A few had only a body, with a dark cloud of fog instead of a head. Others had only a head, their bodies and hearts were like thick vapors. Some were lame; others were paralytics; others were asleep or staggering.
53.23 "Then, I saw that everything that pertained to Protestantism was gradually gaining the upper hand, and the Catholic religion fell into complete decadence. Most priests were lured by the littering but false knowledge of young school-teachers, and they all contributed to the work of destruction.
Comment: 6 non-Catholic ministers were invited to Vatican 2 in order to "help" in the changes of the Liturgy, break down the altars, place the tabernacle elsewhere, and set up a Cranmer table.
Before he was installed in the Chair of Peter, Karol Wojtyla said of this age:
"We find ourselves in the presence of the greatest confrontation in history, the greatest mankind has ever had to confront. We are facing the final confrontation between the Church and the Anti-Church (John 23rd, Paul 6, John Paul 1, John Paul 2), between the Gospel and the Anti-Gospel." (four anti-popes against the four Gospels of Christ)
Ven. Anna-Katrina Emmerick:
53.24 "In thence days, Faith will fall very low, and it will be preservedin some places only, in a few cottages and in a few families which God has
protected from disasters and wars."
53.25 "I see many excommunicated ecclesiastics who do not seem to be concerned about it, nor even aware of it. Yet, they are automatically (ipso facto)excommunicated whenever they cooperated to [sic] enterprises, enter into associations, and embrace opinions on which an anathema has been cast. It can be seen thereby that God ratifies the decrees, orders, and interdictions issued by the Head of the Church, and that He keeps them in force even though men show no concern for them, reject them, or laugh them to scorn."
53.30 "I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great, strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order to be united and have equal rights: Evangelicals, "Catholics", sects of every description. Such was to be the new Church. But God had other designs.
55. The Prophecy of Premol (5th century). "...And I see the King of Rome with his Cross and his tiara, shaking the dust off his shoes, and hastening in his flight to other shores. Thy Church, O Lord, is ton apart by her own children. One camp is faithful to the fleeing Pontiff, the other is subject to the new government of Rome which has broken the Tiara. But Almighty God will, in His mercy, put an end to this confusion and a new age will begin. Then, said the Spirit, this is the beginning of the End of Time."
Comment: From this prophecy, it is clear that the true Church will be faithful to the Pope (Gregory XVII, formerly Cardinal Siri) in exile; whereas, the new "Pope" in Rome will be, in fact, an anti-pope. But, since a number of other prophecies tell us that the true Pope (Cardinal Siri, Gregory XVII) will die in his exile (1989), it follows then that the true Church will be leaderless for some time (now 43 years). Then, it is not difficult to anticipate what the anti-pope and renegade "hierarchy" and clergy will say: "See, your so-called Pope is dead; and who can give you a new Pope now? Our cardinals have already elected the new Pope, he is here in Rome." And, indeed, since the true Church will be completely disorganized, and the faithful Cardinals isolated, no new true Pope could be elected, and thus a large number of Catholics will be misled into accepting the leadership of the anti-pope.
Such a schism could not happen if the Pope followed A. C. Emmerick's advice "to stay in Rome". "But", she said, "the Pope is still attached to the things of the earth." And, as is said elsewhere, "He will want to save what he thinks can be saved." In other words, the true Pope, whoever he is at that time, will use his human judgment and leave Rome, instead of remaining firm in the face of the invaders.)
84. St. Thomas' Apocalypse -- Apocrypha (1st century). "Every man shall speak that which pleaseth him, and my priests shall not have peace among themselves but shall sacrifice unto me with deceitful minds. Then shall the priests behold the people departing from the House of the Lord and turning unto the world. The House of the Lord shall be desolate and her altars will be abhorred. The place of holiness shall be corrupted, and the priesthood polluted."
85. Holzhauser (17th century). "The Great Monarch will come when the Latin Church is desolated, humiliated, and afflicted with many heresies..."
86. B. Rembordt (18th century). "These things will come when they try to set up a new kingdom of Christ from which the true faith will be banished."
87. Oba Prophecy. "It will come when the Church authorities issue directives to promote a new cult, when priests are forbidden to celebrate in any other, when the higher positions in the Church are given to perjurers and hypocrites, when only the renegades are admitted to occupy those positions."
88. Ven. Anna-Kartarina Emmerick (19th Cent.). "I saw again the new and odd-looking church which they were trying to build. There was nothing holy
about it... People were kneading bread in the crypt below... but it would not rise, nor did they receive the body of Our Lord, but only bread. Those who were in error, through no fault of their own, and who piously and ardently longed for the Body of Jesus were spiritually consoled, but not by their communion. Then, my Guide [Jesus] said: 'THIS IS BABEL.' [The Mass in many languages]." (This prophecy was made circa 1820 by Anna-Katarina Emmerick, a stigmatized Augustinian nun and is recorded in The Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich by Rev. Carl E. Schmoeger, C.SS.R.)
Comment: The New [Order] Missal is an ominous sign of the destruction to come, and these dire forebodings are in complete accord with what the prophecies say, and which can be paraphrased thus: "They wanted to make a new church, a church of human manufacture, but God had other designs. The Church will seem to be destroyed, and the enemy shall overcome Rome. The pastors shall be scattered, persecuted, tortured, and murdered. The Holy Father shall have to leave Rome, and he shall die a cruel death. An anti-pope shall be set up in Rome."
..In the 15th century, the Church's great sin was immorality, but Faith was alive. Then came the Reformation, and the wars of religion. Today, however, the Church's sin is even greater because it is a sin against the first of the cardinal virtues, namely Faith. The punishment must needs be commensurate. The latest and most significant contribution to the process leading up to this is the New Missal, a pre-heretical [sic] rite, which has made the Mass as changeable as the passing fashions of the world.
At the 1958 conclave Siri was only 50 years old, and was the most popular cleric in Italy. At 22 he was a priest and at 37 he was a bishop. During the war, he organized soup kitchens for the poor. He was a master of labor-management problems, it having been said that he had settled more disputes, without strikes, than any other man in Italy.
Cardinal Siri was born 400 years to the date after Christopher Columbus died (May 20, 1506) on May 20, 1906.
He was bishop of Genoa for 41 years. Was credited with persuading the retreating German forces in World War II not to blow up the port. He was Pope Pius XII's chosen successor.
Expired on 2 May 1989 (Feast of Saint Athanasias) while saying "Tibi Domine", Thing, Lord.
In 1967 he declared that for him the Council was "difficult labor and a very great suffering."
1988 - "Aids is a chastisement from God." For Siri the major Evil has been the abolition of Hope, the transmutation of the Saving Mission of the Church into material Messianism, the primary sign of which is the "conspiracy of silence on the Last Times."
"In the pontificate of Pius XII, Siri had been a prodigy becoming bishop in 1944 and cardinal in 1953. He was said to have been Pius' designated successor, and fought a rude battle with Roncalli in the 1958 conclave....
Cardinal Siri did not like John XXIII (who even took the name of anti-pope, John 23rd against Church teachings). He once said that "it will take the Church fifty years to recover from his 'pontificate'." He did not like Paul VI, who completed the Council, an event described by Siri as "the greatest disaster in recent ecclesiastical history" (and by "recent" he meant in the last five hundred years). Not surprisingly, therefore, the Council was implemented in Genoa with foot-dragging slowness. Siri's Altars did not face the people. Evening Masses were discouraged. Women in trousers were denounced.
Siri termed Vatican II "the greatest mistake in history."
From the book, The Unelected Pope; Giuseppe Siri, Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church (1993), by Benny Lai, pp. 296-297, from the last recorded conversation with Cardinal Siri. The numbered items are from the book, the comments from Sangre de Cristo Newsnotes.
1. "On September 18, 1988, Cardinal Siri concluded his last recorded conversation with the author by saying: 'A Pope just barely elected (save by a miracle, and the Lord never does useless miracles) - so what does he know, this poor man, of this duty which faces him?'"
An admission of Siri's election. Siri did attempt to publicize his election, but the media refused to print it as the media was already under control of the Freemasons (Jews).
6. "I have faith in the forgiveness of the Lord and, therefore, I am calm."
The 1958 Conclave
Caption from a photo published in 1958 prior to the Conclave of Pope Pius XII: "Pigeon perches on Cardinal's Cap - Genoa, Italy" - Giuseppe Cardinal Siri, Archbishop of Genoa, remained unperturbed when a dove perched on his cap as he celebrated Mass in the arena of the Orfei Circus here. The pigeon was one of a flock released in tribute to the Cardinal. The Mass, said on an altar set up in the center ring of the Big Top, was attended by circus entertainers and a crowd of Genoese."
The words "pigeon" and "dove" are synonymous. Siri's dove was white. The dove landing on a papabile has always been understood to be the indication of the choice of the Holy Ghost who would be Pope.
"When Pope Pius XII fell out with Giovanni Battista Montini... it was presumed Cardinal Siri would become Pope Pius XII's successor. Pope Pius XII made him a bishop at 38 and a cardinal at only 47..." In fact, Pope Pius XII named Siri as his desired successor.
In 1958 various traditionally hostile groups such as the World Jewish Congress and B'nai Brith (the Masonic lodge for perfidious Jews) carried on a covert campaign for Roncalli.
In Italy, so strongly felt was the inevitability of Siri's election in 1958 that the prophesy of Saint Malachy, describing Pope Pius XII's successor a "Shepherd and Sailor" (Pastor et Nauta), was commonly attributed to the illustrious Archbishop of Genoa, Cardinal Siri. The maritime city had been his life-long home, where he was born the son of a dockworker. It was the most important seaport in the country, and birthplace of Christopher Columbus. A Genoan newspaper would write:
"No one better than Siri could symbolize this motto: he is a pastor of highest virtues, a captain of the ship, born and raised on the sea." (Il
Lavoro, Genoa, Italy, May 3, 1989, p. 4.)
"...Moreover Pope Pius XII's protege, Archbishop Siri of Genoa, seemed to be endowed with all the gifts calculated to ensure his becoming a second Pacelli, whereas the opposition's own candidate, Montini, was not to be reckoned on as a starter since he was excluded from the Conclave, not having yet been raised to the purple.
The witnesses have intimated that fulfilling all the essential conditions (teacher, pastor and father) was Cardinal Siri, Archbishop of Genoa, and that even the Pacellians were solidly behind him. It even named the Pacellians: The Italian Cardinals Ruffini, Tedeschini, Fumasoni-Biondi, Pizzardo, Siri, Mimi, Micara, Canali, Ottaviani, Cicognani; the American Cardinals, Spellman and McIntyre; the two German ones, Frings and Wendel: the two Portuguese, De Gouveia and Cerejeira; the two Brazilians, De Barros Camara and Da Silva; the two Argentinians, Caggiano and Copello; the two Canadians, McGuigan and Leger; the Cuban, Betancourt, the Ecuadorian, Torre and the Irish, D'Alton..."
"VATICAN CITY (AP) - Cardinals balloted Sunday without electing a pope. A mix-up in smoke signals made it appear for about half an hour that Pius XII's successor had been chosen. For a time 200,000 Romans and tourists in huge Saint Peter's Square were certain the church had a new pontiff. Millions of others who listened to radios throughout Italy and Europe also were certain. They were certain. They heard the Vatican speaker shout exultantly: 'A pope is elected.."
"The scene around the Vatican was one of incredible confusion. White smoke from a little chimney atop the Vatican is the traditional signal announcing the election of a new pope. Black smoke indicates failure. Twice during the day smoke billowed from the chimney. At noon the smoke at first came white but it quickly turned unquestionably black. This was the sign the cardinals had failed to elect on the first two ballots, at nightfall white smoke billowed from the slender chimney for a full five minutes. For all the outside world knew, a new pontiff had been chosen."
"Clouds of smoke were caught in search lights trained on the Sistine Chapel chimney. 'Bianco! Bianco!' roared many in the crowd. 'White, white.'
"The Vatican Radio announced the smoke was white. The announcer declared the cardinals at that moment probably were going through the rites of adoration for a new supreme pontiff. For a long time Vatican Radio stuck to its insistence the smoke was white."
"Even high Vatican officials were fooled. Callori di Vignale, governor of the conclave, and Sigismondo Chigi, the conclave Marshall, rushed to takeup the positions assigned to them. The Palatine Guard was called from its barracks and ordered to prepare to go to St. Peter's Basilica for (the) announcement of the new pope's name. But the guard was ordered back to barracks before it reached the square. The Swiss Guard was also alerted."
"Chigi, in an interview with the Italian radio, said uncertainty reigned in the palace. He added that this confusion persisted even after the smoke had subsided and until assurances were received from within the conclave that black smoke was intended. He said he had been at three other conclaves and never before seen smoke as varied in color as Sunday's. He told newsmen later he would arrange to have the cardinals informed of Sunday's smoke confusion in the hope that something can be done to remedy the situation Monday."
"Priests and others working within the Vatican grounds saw the white smoke. They started to cheer. They waved kerchiefs enthusiastically, and figures
of conclavists -- cardinal's assistants -- in the windows of the apostolic palace waved back. Possibly they, too, believed a pope had been elected."
"The crowd waited in agony of suspense. Any pope elected would ordinarily appear on the balcony within twenty minutes. The crowd waited a full half
hour now wondering whether the smoke was meant to be black or white. Doubt set in swiftly. Many in the vast crowd began to drift away. But still there was confusion. News media had flashed around the world the word that a new pope had been chosen."
"Telephone calls poured into the Vatican, jamming its exchange. As time wore on and doubts increased, the callers all asked one question: "Black or white?"
"After a half hour, radios began to chatter excitedly that the answer was still uncertain. Only well after the time when a new pope should have appeared on the balcony above St. Peter's Square was it certain that the voting would have to resume Monday at 10 a.m. (3 a.m. CST). The crowd now aware of this, dissipated quickly. Grayish wisps of smoke still spiraled from the chapel chimney..." ("Cardinals Fail To Elect Pope In 4 Ballots; Mix-up In Smoke Signals Causes 2 False Reports," The Houston Post, October 27, 1958, Section 1, pages 1 & 7. On the other side of the page there was a picture of a hydrogen bomb blast.)
Reports of Siri's papal election and forced surrender of office in 1958 are strengthened by the 27 October 1958 Corriere della Sera. The Milan
newspaper stated on the previous evening, white clouds of smoke ascended from the Sistine Chapel stovepipe for several minutes, to thunderous cheers of "Bianco! Bianco!" from the piazza below. When gray smoke followed a short time later, Prince Chigi telephoned the Secretary of the Conclave, Msgr. Santoro, who was inside, to inquire as to what signal the conclave officials had intended for the outside world. In his reply, Santoro instructed Chigi to notify Vatican Radio that "in all certainty, the smoke was white." Yet no Pope appeared on the Papal balcony. Father Pellegrino, who had already announced repeatedly on Vatican Radio that a new Pope had been elected, finally concluded in frustration after a half hour: "It is not possible to cancel out the impression of white smoke upon 300,000 people; the cause of the error must be sought elsewhere."
According to a knowledgeable Italian priest who had conferred with Cardinal Siri, this conservative bloc was actually successful in electing Siri on the fourth ballot of the first day of the conclave, October 26, 1958, which is the feast day of Pope and martyr, Saint Evaristus, the fifth Pope of the Church. Siri, who was the fifth Pope elected this century, is said to have promptly accepted the office and announced that he would take the name "Gregory XVII." Then, a shrill storm of protest was heard from the reformers, who jumped to their feet to intimidate the new Pope with the treat that they would immediately establish an international schismatic church, were he to emerge from the conclave as pope. However, they lied; they did it anyway.
It does not take much thought to realize that John XXIII violated his sworn oath. And, because of notably the leaving of the Conclave by Cardinal Tisserant to confer with the Jewish power, the Conclave was rendered null and void, and thus could not bind.
During Nunciature in Turkey, admitted "into the sect of the Temple" receiving the name "Brother John" - so-called "Prophesies of John XXIII, Pier Carpi, p. 52.
"I know Cardinal Roncalli very well. He was a Deist and a Rationalist whose strength did not lie in the ability to believe in miracles and to venerate the sacred." - Carl Jakob Burckhardt, a high ranking freemason wrote in Journal De Geneve, quoted by Carpi.
"The direction of our action: Continuation of the Work of John XXIII and all those who have followed him on the way to the templer universalisme." -Resurgence de Temple, p. 149 - a book edited by the Masonic Templars themselves in 1975.
During his Nunciature in Paris, "Cardinal Roncalli attended in civilian clothes the Great Lodge where he found again the Jesuit Riquet. His adviser was Maurice Bredet, author of 'Mystic and Magic,' who boasted that he had prophesied the Tiara to Cardinal Roncalli."
His "election" proclaimed under a "full moon". (See Masonic John Paul II for explanation). Roncalli in 1958 took the name of John XXIII, the same name as the Anti-Pope Baldasar Cosa in 1400s, who usurped the papal office during the exile of the true pope, and for a time carried out his usurpation in Rome itself. The policy in the Roman Church is to never take the name of an anti-pope unless it is to right the wrong of that anti-pope. Surely, this was a cryptic signal because it was the beginning of the destructive changes and invention of a new church.
Roncalli, when Nuncio to France, appointed a 33 Degree Freemason and close friend, the Baron Yves Marsaudon, as head of the French Branch of the Knights of Malta. This caused a major scandal for the Pacelli papacy.
The same Yves Marsaudon would later gloat: "If there are still some remnants of thought, reminiscent of the Inquisition, they will be drowned in a rising flood of ecumenism and liberalism. One of the most tangible consequences will be the lowering of spiritual barriers that divide the world. With all our hearts we wish for the success of John XXIII's Revolution." The dedication and preface for Marsaudon's book was written by Charles Riandley, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of France (Scottish Rite). Riandley wrote: "To the memory of Angelo Roncalli,... Pope under the Name of John XXIII, Who Has Deigned to Give Us His Benediction, His Understanding and His Protection, ... [and] To His August Continuer, His Holiness Pope Paul VI." Riandley confidently predicted how the policies of Roncalli and Montini would advance the Masonic agenda: "We are convinced of the narrowness of the spiritual, cultural, scientific, social and economic structures which up to our own time, have hindered the actions and the thoughts of man... But these structures have already been shattered in part. Some pontifical decisions have contributed to this. We feel sure that they will be all destroyed eventually... True, not everything is to be rejected; but what cannot be saved will not be saved unless it is renovated."
When elevated to the College of Cardinals Roncalli insisted upon receiving the red hat from the notoriously anti-clerical Vincent Auriol, President of the Masonic "Fourth Republic" of France, kneeling before him to have the red hat placed upon his head.
At social functions in Paris Roncalli was frequently seen fraternizing with the Soviet Ambassador, M. Bogomolov, even though the Soviet Union had resumed its pre-war policy of brutal extermination of Catholics in Russia. Also a good friend of Edouard Herriot, Secretary of the anti-Catholic Radical Socialists (of France).
The Holy Office had kept a file on Roncalli since 1925, wherein it stated, "suspected of Modernism." In 1925, Roncalli, who was known for his unorthodox teachings, was abruptly removed from his professorship at the Lateran Seminary in mid-semester and shipped off to Bulgaria, thus beginning his diplomatic career. Of particular concern to the Holy Office had been his continuing close association with the defrocked priest, Ernesto Buonaiuti, who was excommunicated for heresy in 1926.
Following Roncalli's "election" he summoned the conclavists back to the Sistine Chapel for an unusual overnight post-election session, politely threatening excommunication for noncompliance. His principle use of the assemblage was to renew stern warnings against any breach of conclave secrecy (lest some suspicious details might leak out, exposing the irregular events to the public.)
Roncalli received Kruschev's son-in-law and his wife, as John Paul II would receive Gorbachev, in 1963. They received the personal "blessing" of John XXIII. On this same occasion, John XXIII was awarded the Soviet Balzen Peace Prize. (According to the 1967 World Book Encyclopedia, "peace" to a Communist is the condition when there is no longer any opposition to Communism.) Not surprisingly, John XXIII's Vatican II Council refused to condemn Communism as his 3 successors.
On of John 23rd's first acts was to make Giovanni Baptiste Montini (the future Paul VI) a cardinal, something Pope Pius XII refused to do after it was found Montini had been secretly communicating with Stalin during World War II. John 23rd making Montini a Cardinal positioned him to become Masonic "Pope" Paul VI, which was apparently the gameplan all along, as suggested by LIFE magazine's promotion of "Montini for Pope" in 1956 when he was still only a bishop.
A few days before his death he made a prominent Roman Freemason, Umberto Ortolani, a "Gentleman of His Holiness' a much coveted title reserved for the patrician elite amongst Catholics. It was a sign that John XXIII did not repent of his Masonic affiliations, even on his death bed.
>From 30 Days magazine, Nov. 2, 1994 edition entitled "A John XXIII Update"
"Our readers will remember that in our June 1994 newsletter (Nuclear Horizons) we published a sensational statement by the Grand Master of the Italian Grand Orient Order of Freemasons to the effect that 'Pope' John XXIII had been initiated into the Freemasons when he was Nuncio in Paris in the late forties.
We pointed out, that if this statement were true, Angelo Roncalli (John XXIII) could not possibly have been validly elected to the Supreme Pontificate. He would have been intrinsically ineligible by reason of his automatic (ipso facto) excommunication under Canon Law (No. 2335). Not being a Catholic, it was not possible for him to be head of the Catholic Church."
Just prior to his death, according to Jewish sources (The War Against the Jew, Dagobert Runes), Roncalli was preparing to make a "Prayer of Reparation" to the Jews, which denies the Church and applauds the Jews a mandate for all Catholics. It goes:
"We admit that over hundreds of years our eyes were blinded, so as not to see the Beauty of Thy Chosen People and not to recognize the features of our firstborn brother. We admit that the sign of Cain is upon our forehead. For centuries Abel was lying in blood and tears while we had forgotten Thy love. Forgive us, O Lord, the curse we unjustly spoke out over the people of Israel. Forgive us, that in their flesh we crucified You the second time! We did not know what we were doing."
At an exhuming of the body of John XXIII relating to the advancement of his cause for Beatification, the group of witness present were shocked to find that the body in the coffin was facing downward.
THE 1963 CONCLAVE
On pages 607 to 609 of his book, "The Keys Of This Blood," Malachi Martin, sinister perennial insider and eye-witness to the '63 Conclave, admits that Siri was elected Pope [again] in 1963, but that his election was "set aside" because of an outside "communication" [interference] by an "internationally based organization", regarding a "grave matter of [Vatican] state security." He then tries to justify outside interference of the conclave if it is conducted "by authorized persons" or if "the very existence of the Vatican City-State or its members or dependents" were at stake."
One should note that this is the same Malachi Martin, who admitted to journalist, Benjamin Kaufman, that he had been brought into the Vatican by the Jewish "Cardinal" Bea to dig up dirt on prelates targeted for blackmail. Martin boasted that he had been "shaking long-closeted skeletons in the faces of cardinals who didn't quite want to do what Cardinal Bea and the pope wanted at the Council... 'I saw cardinals sweating in front of me'. Martin recalled... It was heady, having that power, 'and I began to enjoy it.'" (Cincinnati Enquirer, 22 December 1973)
In one of his writings, Prince Scotersco, German cousin of Prince Borghese, President of the Conclave which elected Montini to the Supreme Pontificate, gives the following information concerning the Conclave of 21 June 1963: "During the Conclave, a Cardinal [Tisserant]
Our Lady of LaSalette Prophecy of Antichrist's Lying Wonders
The La Salette appparition preceded the Lourdes apparition to Saint Bernadette by 12 years. The Blessed Virgin appeared on the now famous La Salette Mount in France to two children. One was a little shepherd boy, 11 years of age, and the other a poor, timid girl, 14 years of age. These two children suddenly became famous in France, Italy, and throughout Europe. The name of the boy is Peter Maximin Giraud; adn that of the girl, Frances Melanie Mathieu. On Saturday, September 19, 1846, between 2 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon, they both beheld the apparition. It was recognized as worthy of credence by Pope Pius IX on August 24, 1852, and has been known throughout the Catholic World as Our Lady of La Salette. The following are the Secret Messages beginning with Maximin's:
"Three fourths of France shall lose the Faith, and the other fourth, that will preserve it, will practice it with tepidity.
Peace shall not be given to the world until men will be converted.
A Protestant nation in the North shall be converted to the Faith, and through the means of that nation, the others shall return to the Holy Catholic Church.
The next Pope shall not be a Roman.
Afterwards this peace shall be disturbed by the monster. The monster shall arrive at the end of this nineteenth century or, at latest, at the commencement of the twentieth.
In this time the Antichrist will be born of a nun of Hebraic descent, a false virgin, who will have intercourse with the ancient serpent, with the master of impurity and putrefaction. His father will be a bishop. He will perform false miracles and subsist only on vitiating faith. He will have his brethren, who will be children of evil but not incarnate devils like himself. Soon they will be at the head of armies, supported by the Legions of Hell.
Up, ye children of Light, and fight! For behold, the age of ages, the end, the extremity is at hand! Teh Church passes into eclipse. The world will be in a state of consternation, perplexity and confusion.
Enoch and Elias, they will suddenly appear on earth full of the Spirit of God, when the Church becomes darkened and the world in terrible agony. They will convert those of good will and comfort the oppressed Christians. With the help of the Holy Ghost, they will have great success against the heresies of the Antichrist. But in the end they will be delivered unto death."
SECRET OF MELANIE MATHIEU
"What I shall tell you now will not always remain a secret. You are allowed to publish it after the year 1858.
There will be a kind of false peace before the advent of Antichrist. Man's only thought will be upon diversions and amusements. The wicked will indulge in all sorts of sin, but the children of the Holy Church, the children of the Faith, my sincere followers, will wax strong in the love of God and in the virtues that are dear to Me. Happy the humble souls that are guided by the Holy Ghost. I will fight with them until they shall have reached the completion of age.
Italy will be severely punished for her efforts to shake off the Yoke of the Most High Lord. She will become the play-ball of war. On every side blood will flow. The churches will either be closed or desecrated. Priests and members of Religious Orders will be put to flight. They will be beaten to death and otherwise die cruel deaths.
The Vicar of My Son will be compelled to suffer much because for a time the Church will be delivered to great persecutions. That will be the hour of darkness, and the Church will experience a frightful crisis. The powerful officials of the State and the Church will be suppressed and done away with, and all law and order as well as justice. There will be murder, hate, envy and deceit, with no love or regard for one's country or family.
God is going to punish in a manner without example. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God is going to exhaust His wrath, and nobody shall be able to evade so many combined evils. At the first stroke of His fulminating sword the mountains and the whole of nature shall shake with terror, because the disorders and crimes of men pierce the very Vaults of the Heavens. The earth shall be stricken with every kind of plagues. (Besides the pestilence and famine, which shall be general.) There shall be wars until the last war, which shall be waged by the ten kings of the Antichrist. All these kings shall have a common design, and they only shall govern the world. Priests and Religious shall be hunted; they shall be butchered in a cruel manner. Many shall abandon the Faith, and great shall be the number of Priests and Religious who shall separate themselves from the True Religion; among these there will be found likewise several bishops. Let the Pope be upon his guard against miracle-workers, for the time is arrived when the most astounding prodigies will take place on the earth and in the air.
Lucifer, with a very great number of demons will be unchained from hell. By degrees they shall abolish the Faith, even among persons consecrated to God. They shall blind them in such a manner that, without very special graces, these persons shall imbibe the spirit of those wicked angels. Many religious houses will entirely lose the Faith, and shall be the cause of the loss of many persons. The Superiors of Religious communities should be alert regarding the ones they take into the community, for the devil will use all malice, to bring persons into the Orders who are addicted to sin.
Bad people will abound upon the earth; and the spirit of darkness shall spread over the earth a universal relaxation about everything relating to the Service of God. Satan shall have very great power over nature (God's punishment for the crimes of men); temples will be erected for the worship of these demons. Some persons shall be transported from one place to another by these wicked spirits, even some priests, because these will not be animated by the Holy Spirit of the Gospel, which is a spirit of humility, charity, and zeal for the Glory of God.
Some will seem to make the dead rise and appear as holy persons. The souls of the damned shall also be summoned, and shall appear as united to their bodies. Such persons, resurrected through the agency of demons, shall assume the figure of holy persons, who are known to have been upon earth, in order more easily to deceive them. These self-styled resuscitated persons shall be nothing but demons under their forms. In this way they shall preach a gospel contrary to that of Jesus Christ, denying the existence of Heaven.
In every place there shall be seen extraordinary prodigies, because the True Faith has been extinguished, and a pale light shines in the world.
My Son's Vicar shall have much to suffer, because for a time the Church shall be exposed to very great persecutions. This shall be the time of darkness. The Church shall have to pass through an awful crisis. France, Italy, Spain, and England shall have Civil War. Blood shall flow through the streets. French shall fight French, Italians against Italians. After this there will be a frightful general war. For a time God shall not remember France, nor Italy (for two years or for one?), because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no more understood. The Holy Father will suffer much. I will be with him to the end to receive his sacrifice. The wicked shall many times attempt his life.
Nature demands vengeance against men, and she trembles with fright in expectation of what will befall the earth sullied with crimes. Tremble, O earth! And tremble you also who make profession of serving Jesus Christ, but inwardly worship yourselves, because God has delivered you to his enemies, because corruption is in holy places.
In the year 1865 the abomination shall be seen in Holy Places, in Convents, and then the demon shall make himself as the king of hearts. It will be about that time that Antichrist shall be born. At his birth he shall vomit blasphemies. He shall have teeth; in a word, he shall be like an incarnate demon; he shall utter frightful screams; he shall work prodigies; and he shall feed on impure things. He shall have brothers, who, though not incarnate demons like him, shall nevertheless be children of iniquity. At the age of twelve years they shall have become remarkable for valiant victories, which they shall achieve; very soon each of them will be at the head of armies. Paris shall be burned, and Marseilles shall be submerged; many great cities shall be shattered and swallowed up by earthquakes. The populace will believe that everything is lost, will see nothing but murder, and will hear only the clang of arms and sacrilegious blasphemies.
I address a pressing appeal to the Earth. I call upon the True Disciples of the Living God Who reigns in the Heavens; I call upon the True Imitators of Christ made Man, the Only True Savior of mankind; I call upon My children, those who are truly devoted to Me, those who have offered themselves to Me that I may lead them to My Son, those whom I carry as it were in My arms, those who have been animated by My Spirit.
