(Pope Pius XII had died on October 9, 1958. He had
reigned from 1939 to 1958. The Conclave to elect his successor convened on
October 26, 1958.)
. . . As Darkness Came Over the
Vatican . . ."
From the article linked in Section I on the home page, "Comments on the Eclipse of the Church and the
White Smoke of October 26, 1958":
(Note: Joseph Breig was a Catholic Reporter who
was on the scene in the Vatican for the Papal Conclave which began on October
26, 1958. 5 minutes of white smoke went up from the Sistine Chapel Chimney 5:55
PM to 6 PM,
indicating that a Pope had been elected, -- but no Pope appeared
on the balcony.)
In a sentence perhaps more pregnant with unintended
meaning than any other written in the 20th century, Breig penned these words:
"Two views of the stovepipe extending above the Sistine Chapel -- white smoke
indicating a new Pope, gray, showing no agreement came five minutes apart as
darkness came over the Vatican . . ." (emphasis added)
And the very next sentence from Breig prompts us to surmise with the benefit of
decades of hindsight that the evil cabal which had just seized control of the
Vatican structures had not yet had time to get their cover story straight:
"Vatican authorities were at a loss to explain the confusion . . ."
It is significant that those who took control of the Vatican on that night have
never offered any coherent explanation to this day for the five minutes of white
smoke on October 26, 1958.
[Quotes referred to in the above quoted passage are from the late Catholic journalist,
Joseph A. Breig, who was on the spot in Rome on that fateful evening, as
published in the December, 1958
pamphlet entitled, "Vicar of Christ; Pope John XXIII," from Summit Press Inc., Saint Paul, Minnesota, page 23.]
If reporter Joseph Breig had any momentary misgivings when
the white smoke turned back to grey after five minutes on that late fall evening
of October 26, 1958, - we will never know. In any case, he, like virtually
everyone else on the outside, gave the cardinals in the conclave the benefit of
any doubts, figured they were acting freely, without duress, were still in
control of the conclave without outside interference, and that they
knew what they were doing.
When Brieg wrote ". . . as darkness came over the Vatican
. . .", Breig was undoubtedly referring only to the fact that dusk was turning
to darkness in Rome at that moment, as the white smoke turned to grey.
But, as stated above, this sentence by Breig was perhaps
more pregnant with unintended meaning than any other written in the 20th
century. For, with benefit of decades of hindsight, it is now clear that at that
very moment the forces of darkness in this world, the shadow government of
Judeo-Freemasonry backed by international finance, -- was usurping the Papacy
and taking control of the Vatican structures amidst dire threats against the
newly elected Pope and the 51 cardinals in the conclave, -- threats which
involved "the very existence of the Vatican state", to quote Malachi Martin in
his book, "Keys of this Blood" pages 600 to 610. (This "very
existence of the Vatican state" could only refer to the threat of the use of
nuclear weapons if the newly elected Pope was not shoved aside, and replaced
with someone acceptable to those issuing the threat. See the article linked on
the home page, "An Ominous Anniversary.")
Physical darkness was not the only reality coming over the
Vatican at that moment, but spiritual darkness as well, due to diabolical,
well-planned outside interference into
the Conclave -- and that spiritual darkness would very soon thereafter be
engulfing the whole world as well.
FIVE KEY ARTICLES ABOUT THE 1958 CONCLAVE AND
"THE ECLIPSE OF THE CHURCH" LINKED ON THE HOME PAGE
In "Section I" on
the Home Page, are linked,
in this reporter's judgement, by far the most important Five Key Articles that
have been written about the crisis within the structures of the Roman Catholic
Church in this, our day. This apocalyptic crisis has now spanned from October 26, 1958 until the present.
To put it another way, these Five Key Articles explain what did happen to precipitate the
current crisis, and all other attempts either fall woefully short, or point the
searching soul in the wrong direction.
five linked articles (in Section I on the Home Page) were written by portrait artist, NASA model maker, and investigative
reporter, Mr. Gary Giuffre of Texas, USA. (The commentary in the "White Smoke"
article was a collaboration of Mr. Giuffre and this writer.) The attention to
detail which is a necessary skill of the portrait artist shines through in these
linked articles, which launched perhaps the most earthshaking criminal
investigation which touches on the 20th and 21st century.
These articles are key explanations of the unfolding of
"The Eclipse of the Church" in our time, often also called the"Siri
Theory", or "Siri
Thesis", or "Siri Investigation".
The Siri Investigation holds that the predominance of the known evidence points to the
conclusion that Pope Pius XII's preferred choice to succeed him, Joseph Cardinal
Siri, was canonically elected Pope on October 26, 1958 - 17 days after Pope Pius
But, as was documented the next day worldwide via radio, TV, and the
headlines in many large newspapers including the London Tablet and the Houston
Chronicle, -- as well as in dozens of other big city newspapers, --
no Pope emerged onto the
balcony that evening after the five minutes of white smoke was witnessed by
hundreds of thousands of people.
The white smoke was seen on that evening by the
assembled throng in St. Peter's Square from 5:55 PM to 6 PM. Fr. Francesco
Pellegrino, who was the voice of worldwide Vatican shortwave radio that night,
announced from approximately 5:55 PM to 6:25 PM -- for a full thirty minutes --
"Habemus Papam" (i.e., "We Have a Pope"). When he was informed that the Conclave
was continuing, Fr. Pellegrino stated (paraphase in English): "The
impression of white smoke on 200,000 people can not be erased. They are telling
me a mistake has been made. That is not possible. The answer must lie
Pope Pius XII and Cardinal Siri circa 1953 Pius XII makes Siri
a Cardinal in 1953
Cardinal Siri in 1953 immediately after he became
the last Cardinal made
by Pope Pius XII
The "Siri Thesis", or "Siri Investigation",
contends that the "Eclipse of the Church" began when dire threats which involved
the very existence of the Vatican State
were delivered that evening (October 26, 1958), immediately after 6 PM, against
the newly elected Pope and the Cardinals still assembled in the Conclave; that
these threats were delivered moments after Cardinal Siri was elected, accepted, and chose the name
Gregory XVII (the three things that would have had to have
already happened for white smoke
to go up from the Sistine Chapel chimney for five minutes).
Two Canon Laws
in force at that time stated that
any proceedings in a Conclave are invalidated after external threats have
entered that Conclave. (See, for example, Canon 185 of the 1917 Code
of Canon Law, which all must admit was in force during the 1958 Conclave.) Therefore, no matter what deceit, trickery, and or
threats were used against Siri after these external threats entered the 1958
Conclave, he would still remain the canonically elected Pope, and the "election"
of John XXIII two days later would be illegal, uncanonical, and would make John XXIII an
anti-pope, and not a Pope.
Because of these most serious threats against the
1958 Conclave, coupled with the connivance of corrupted Cardinals within the
conclave who had agreed in advance to cooperate with the top operatives of
Freemasonry in causing Siri to be shoved aside AFTER he was canonically elected,
the subsequent "election" of Roncalli as John XXIII was both uncanonical and
invalid. (See the prophecy of St. Francis of Assisi, below, about "an
uncanonically elected Pope [i.e., ant-pope] who will cause a great schism . .
(We are dealing with one of the greatest, if
not the greatest, worldwide deception of all time. Investigative minds will
rightly demand to know what regarding the "Siri Investigation" is certain, what
is probable, and what is uncertain. See "The State of the Siri Investigation",
coming soon in Section III on the home page.)
Declassified US Intelligence
Documents Reveal that Cardinal Siri was elected, and Took the Name Pope Gregory
XVII, On October 26, 1958
In 2003, former FBI consultant Dr. Paul L. Williams, author of Osama's
Revenge, and numerous other books, published The Vatican Exposed:
Money, Murder, and the Mafia (Prometheus Books). Although the book deals
primarily with alleged Vatican corruption in terms of money and power, and has a
decidedly liberal flavor, Williams -- treating the declassified document as
nothing more than a
side-note -- includes some information about the papal conclave of 1958.
Williams, who appears to be a
liberal Catholic (although this cannot be verified from the online bios we could
find), cited declassified US intelligence documents which stated that Cardinal
Joseph Siri was elected Pope, and took the name Gregory XVII, on the third
ballot on October 26,
1958 right before 6 PM, Rome time.
Here is part of what Williams wrote
in The Vatican Exposed:
"In 1958 [on October 26], when
the cardinals were locked away in the Sistine Chapel to elect a new pope,
mysterious events began to unfold. On the third ballot, Siri, according to FBI
sources, obtained the necessary votes and was elected as Pope Gregory XVII.
White smoke poured from the chimney of the chapel to inform the faithful that a
new pope had been chosen. The news was announced with joy at 6 P.M. on Vatican
radio. The announcer said, "The smoke is white. . . . There is absolutely no
doubt. A pope has been elected." . . . "
Williams cites these footnotes
in the above passage, and in a subsequent paragraph:
--  Department of State
secret dispatch, "John XXIII," issue date: November 20, 1958, declassified:
November 11, 1974.
--  The announcer's words appeared in the London Tablet, November 1, 1958, p.
--  Department of State Secret File, “Cardinal Siri,” issue date April 10,
1961, declassified: February 28, 1994]
Let's continue: Dr. Paul L.
Williams is an accepted player in the pantheon of authors and personalities
welcome on the Big Media post the 9-11 terror attacks. He accepts without
question the official 9-11 story, and has vigorously supported all the war
actions against Arab and Muslim nations since 9-11-2001.
He has been a repeated guest
on FOX Cable News, and big talk shows such as The Michael Savage Show and
Coast with George Noury. He has penned articles for major news outlets,
including USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and National Review. A regular
guest on such news outlets as Fox News, NPR, and MSNBC, Williams has penned
celebrated articles concerning Islamic paramilitary compounds, such as Islamberg,
that have been circulated throughout the country. He remains a popular speaker
on the Christian circuit. He served for seven years as a consultant to the
FBI about terrorist and mafia criminal organizations.
In other words, Dr. Williams
is a player, and a trusted member of "the team" who would be given access to FBI
files, and other government files, for his research.
When contacted by a
New York Magistrate, attorney Laura Yantsos, and asked about these declassified
documents concerning Siri's election on the first day of the conclave in 1958,
Paul Williams reportedly claimed not to know anything about them.
So, the most logical
explanation for his stonewalling of the Magistrate's questions is that Williams,
in good faith, found and used the documents in question because they bolstered
his book's thesis that the Vatican was a corrupt place with lots of hidden
skullduggery. HOWEVER, subsequently, he was chastised and told by "higher ups"
that the "Siri/1958 conclave" documents were not supposed to have been
declassified, and should never have been published. Thus Williams, a good team
player for the FBI, when asked by New York Magistrate Yantsos, pretends not to know anything about theses documents
referred to in his own book.
This type of stonewalling
enhances the credibility of the documents Williams published on Siri and the
1958 conclave in his book, The Vatican Exposed.
Likewise, since Williams is not a traditional-minded Catholic, and may not even
be Catholic, and is certainly not in favor of, or even concerned about, and
perhaps not even aware
of, "the Siri Thesis" -- then the credibility of these documents is further
enhanced. (In other words, if someone like myself, as one who supporters the
Siri Thesis, had found these blockbuster, declassified documents -- the reader could
justifiably wonder if I had fabricated the whole thing just to bolster my case.)
1958 WAS "THE SCENE OF THE CRIME"
The greatest moral authority on earth was being eclipsed.
The long prophesied "Eclipse of the Church" had begun. "The Church will be in
eclipse; the world will be in dismay." - Our Lady of LaSalette, 1846
Not matter what one's view of the "Vatican II Popes" and
the state of the Papacy, there is no question that the "left turn" against
Catholic tradition took place on October 28, 1958 when John XXIII (Roncalli)
walked out on the Balcony and was presented to the world as the "newly elected
1958 was the "scene of the crime."
The following from the commentary on the article linked on
the home page, "The Eclipse of the Church and Comments on the White Smoke of
October 26, 1958":
One may wonder what was made of all this
white smoke and how much, if at all, did these developments perplex and disturb
the Italian faithful? For instance, a number of people have anecdotally told Mr.
Giuffre, the author of this article, as well as others who are supporters of
this investigation, that the "word on the street" after Roncalli emerged as John
XXIII was that "they switched popes on us." In fact, a veteran Italian news
reporter adds her considerable credibility to this popular perception.
In her still unpublished memoirs, Vatican news correspondent, and long time
reporter for the Associated Press wire service, Gabriella Montemayor
(1912-2005), whose career spanned 50 years, summarized the rumors that
circulated among informed journalists in October 1958:
“Siri was alleged to have been elected at the conclave of
1958, from which, instead, came out Roncalli. The three well-known smoke
signals, white, black, and then, finally, white, had aroused not a little
perplexity and the same comment throughout the whole of the Italian peninsula:
Who had been elected at the first white smoke?
"Everyone in Genoa insisted, even from the first day: ‘It most certainly was
[Cardinal Joseph} Siri.’ Could he have abdicated? Had he been forced out? Was it
politics or the Holy Ghost? The mystery remains yet today. However, the [new]
Vatican which burst unexpectedly before our eyes was a totally different Vatican
from that of Pius XII, who had condemned Communism, excommunicating whoever had
collaborated in any way with the atheists. The excommunication was surely still
legitimate when the new pontificate opened its arms to the Soviets, even as
Roncalli was hailed, in a shameless manner, as the “good Pope.”
(Gabriella Montemayor, "I’ll Tell My Cat," 1993, unpublished manuscript, Rome,
chapter 4: “Conclave,” page 28.)
SISTER LUCY OF FATIMA WEIGHS IN -
ONE YEAR BEFORE THE 1958 CONCLAVE
A mere 10 months before the death of Pope Pius XII and the
1958 Conclave, on December 26, 1957, Sister Lucia of Fatima (Lucia dos Santos,
the main seer of the Fatima apparitions) was visited by Fr. Augustin Fuentes of
Mexico, who was preparing to take on the position of postulator of the causes
for beatification of the other two Fatima seers, Francisco and Jacinta Marto.
Fr. Fuentes was a man of impeccable reputation, which is why he had been chosen
for this responsibility. He felt Sister Lucy's words to him on this occasion
were so important that he sought and received the ecclesiastical permission of
his superiors to publish what he had been told.
The following is taken from the website, Fatima.org:
Father Fuentes affirmed that the message came "from the
very lips of the principal seer."
Sources: This matter has been documented at length by Frère Michel de la
Sainte Trinité in Volume III of his series The Whole Truth About Fatima. The
following text is The Fatima Crusader’s translation of the Spanish and the
English texts published in Frère Michel’s book The Third Secret (Volume III, pp.
336-338). . . .
The Report by Father Fuentes
"I wish to tell you about the last conversation which I had with Sister Lucy on
the 26th of December (last year). I met her in her convent. She was very sad,
very pale and emaciated. . . .
"Father, the most Holy Virgin is very sad because no one has
paid any attention to Her Message, neither the good nor the bad. . . . But
believe me, Father, God will chastise the world and this will be in a terrible
manner. The punishment from Heaven is imminent." . . .
"Father, how much time is there before 1960 arrives?
It will be very sad for everyone, not one person will rejoice at all if
beforehand the world does not pray and do penance. I am not able to give any
other details, because it is still a Secret. According to the will of the
Most Holy Virgin, only the Holy Father and the Bishop of Fatima are permitted to
know the Secret, but they have chosen to not know it so that they would not be
influenced. This is the third part of the Message of
Our Lady, which will remain secret until 1960." . . . (My comment:
Fr. Fuentes indicated elsewhere that he took Sister Lucy's question, ". . . how
much time is before 1960 arrives?" -- as a rhetorical question indicating the
urgency of the situation in the Seer's mind.)
Sister Lucy also told me: "Father, the devil is in the
mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil
knows what it is that offends God the most, and which in a short space of time
will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus the devil does everything
to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way
the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of
the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize
them." . . .
"Father, that is why my mission is not to indicate to
the world the material punishments which are certain to come if the world
does not pray and do penance beforehand. No! My mission is to indicate to
everyone the imminent danger we are in of losing our souls for all eternity if
we remain obstinate in sin."
(End of quotes from Fatima.org -- the entire text is at:
http://www.fatima.org/essentials/opposed/frfuentes.asp - and I highly
recommend reading it all.)
Let's think about the words of Sister Lucy above to Fr.
Fuentes, ten months before the 1958 conclave. She says:
* The punishment from Heaven is imminent
* It will be sad for everyone, not one person will rejoice
* Since the Pope and Bishop of Fatima had chosen not to
know it, the Third Secret would not be known until 1960
* The devil wants to leave the souls of the faithful
abandoned by their leaders
* That her mission is not to indicate to the world the
Clearly, without giving any exact details, Sister Lucy
told us that the punished from Heaven was IMMINENT in 1957, while seeming also
to indicate that the Third Secret did not primarily concern material
punishments, but a spiritual chastisement in which the souls of the Faithful are
abandoned by our leaders.
". . . BECAUSE IT WILL BE CLEARER
About 12 years earlier, circa 1946.
Sister Lucy had been asked by someone authorized to interview her (paraphrase of
the question from memory): "Why the year 1960 for the release of the Third
Secret?" Sister Lucy replied exactly this: "Because it will be clearer then."
In 1959, Antipope John XXIII had claimed to have "an
inspiration" to call a General Council of the Church (in fact, John
XXIII told two conflicting stories about this "inspiration). In 1960 it was well known
that the preparations for the Second Vatican Council were underway. And, instead of
releasing the Third Secret in 1960, John XXIII consigned it to the deepest
archives of the Vatican, stating that this message "is not meant for my time."
The following from the article linked on the home page,
"Warnings from Heaven Suppressed":
When 1960 finally arrived, Pius XII’s legitimate successor
had been swept aside, and in his place intruded the accused Rosicrucian, Angelo
Roncalli (John XXIII), who had the effrontery to quash the message from the
Mother of God with the deceitful excuse: "It is not meant for my time."
According to one account, damaging clues concerning
Roncalli’s true motive for smothering the Third Secret of Fatima surfaced in
newspapers from a country far removed from Rome:
" . . . The first and principal part of that secret is still being suppressed by
the people who would be exposed and incriminated by its publication, those
Modernists who have finally succeeded in "infiltrating into the highest places
in the Church," including the papal throne itself. On Monday, September 11,
1972, THE INDIAN EXPRESS, largest daily newspaper in India, carried an article
about the Fatima Secret. On Sunday, September 10, the UNI (United News of India)
hurriedly dispatched the following news to all Indian papers and called special
attention of the Associated Press and ANSA (Italian News Service). The action
was prompted by the tremendous impact which leaflets on the Fatima Secret,
distributed by Roman Catholics in Cochin, had made upon Indian Catholics that
"‘The leaflet said that the Virgin Mary appeared to three children at Fatima,
Portugal, in 1917. She had left one of them with a secret message with
instructions that it be sent to the Pope in a sealed envelope that should be
opened and made public in 1960.
"‘This was the FATIMA SECRET which the Vatican has failed to publish, the
"‘It alleged that the Vatican had not revealed the contents of the message so
far, as ordained by the Virgin. This, the leaflet contended, was because the
message was self-damaging to the Vatican.
". . . the Secret Message of Fatima was to be opened in 1960, by the Pontiff
then reigning, or on the occasion of Sister Lucia’s death, whichever occurred
first, and then immediately published to the world. Sister Lucia is still
living. The Pontiff reigning in 1960 was Pope John XXIII.
"‘ . . . The secret contained important information about the Conclave and, as
Sister Lucia has since stated to several priest interviewers, about the Papacy.
‘Rest assured, if the Secret dealt with no information other than the end of the
world, a third world war, a great chastisement, or warnings and threats no
matter how dire, the Modernists certainly never would have suppressed it. Why
should they? But if it were to expose them? . . . ; if it were to break their
power . . . then, of course, they would stop at nothing to suppress it. And by .
. . 1960, they had more than enough power to control the news in any way they
BOTH SISTER LUCY AND BLESSED ANNA KATRINA
EMMERICH IN AGONY OVER THE REVELATIONS THEY HAD BEEN GIVEN TO REVEAL
It is well known in Fatima circles that Sister Lucy found
it almost impossible to write down the Third Secret.
This from page 82 of
La Verdad sobre el Secreto de Fatima
by Fr. Joaquin Alonso (for a while the official archivist of Fatima, although
the bulk of his research has been prevented from being published). This
important passage was also repeated and cited on page 707 of The Whole Truth
about Fatima, Volume III, by Frere Michel de la Sainte Trinite:
In June of 1943 Sister Lucy became seriously ill with pleurisy, which caused
Canon Galamba and Bishop da Silva to fear that she would die without having
revealed the final Secret. Canon Galamba later convinced Bishop da Silva to
suggest that Sister Lucy write down the Third Secret. However, Sister Lucy was
unable to take the step of committing the Third Secret of Fatima to paper based
on the bishop’s mere suggestion. The absence of an explicit order from the
bishop troubled her deeply, and Lucy did not wish to take responsibility for the
In mid-October 1943, Bishop da Silva finally gave Sister Lucy the formal order
to write down the Third Secret. Lucy attempted to obey the bishop’s command,
but was unable to do so for the next two and a half months. From mid-October
1943 to early January 1944, Sister Lucy was prevented from obeying a formal
order to write down the Third Secret by an unspeakable anguish that she
experienced. Finally, on January 2, 1944 Our Lady appeared to her to give
her strength and confirm that it was the will of God that she write it down. It
was only then that Sister Lucy was able to reveal the final part of the Secret.
In addressing this difficulty, Father Alonso asks,
'Moreover, how are we to understand Lucy’s great difficulty in writing the final
part of the Secret when she has already written other things that were extremely
difficult to put down? Had it been merely a matter of prophesying new and severe
punishments, Sister Lucy would not have experienced difficulties so great that a
special intervention from Heaven was needed to overcome them. But if it were a
matter of internal strife within the Church and of serious pastoral negligence
on the part of high-ranking members of the hierarchy, we can understand how Lucy
experienced a repugnance that was almost impossible to overcome by natural
Before his death in 1981, Father Alonso stated the following important
conclusions concerning the Third Secret:
'It is therefore completely probable that the text makes concrete references to
the crisis of faith within the Church and to the negligence of the pastors
themselves [and the] internal struggles in the very bosom of the Church and of
grave pastoral negligence by the upper hierarchy.'
'In the period preceding the great triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
terrible things are to happen. These form the content of the third part of the
Secret. . . .
Thus it is quite possible that in this intermediate period which is in question
(after 1960 and before the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary), the text
makes concrete references to the crisis of the Faith of the Church and to the
negligence of the pastors themselves.'
(These passages taken from Fatima.org,
http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/fralonso.asp - and -
http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/realthirdsecret.asp - and all are invited
to read these entire articles for themselves.)
Fr. Alonso, it seems to this writer, has "hit the nail on
the head" as to why Sister Lucy almost could not write down the relatively brief
Third Secret, even after months of trying.
In all probability, she was agonizing over how to express
what she had been given to reveal without seeming to attack the Church herself.
This type of agonizing in a Holy Seer was not
unprecedented. Another example would be the case of Blessed Anna Katrina
Emmerich, -- and she was struggling about the same subject matter.
Blessed Anna Katrina Emmerick (circa 1821), -- spoken of
highly by Pope Pius IX and many other credible persons, - had seen in her
visions a "counterfeit church of darkness" occupying Rome at some time in the
future -- in an era when she also saw the priest facing the people when saying
Mass. (Priests were ordered to face the people while saying Mass beginning about
1965, right after the Second Vatican Council.)
The Holy Seer, who bore the stigmata in her body, was so
troubled by her own visions, feeling that they must be from the devil since the
true Church could never do the things she foresaw, -- that at one point she
reportedly tore up all the written pages which she had dictated to those who
were chronicling her visions. Her spiritual superiors ordered her to re-dictate
these visions again.
In the case of both Seers, the dilemma was the same: how
to express what had been revealed to them, without bringing bad light on the
Church itself, and without appearing to attack the Church in any way.
This is the only possible explanation for why it took over
2 months for Sister Lucy to write down the Third Secret, which turned out to be
only one side of one page in length.
The so-called "Third Secret" released by the Vatican in
2002, of a Bishop dressed in white walking up a hill and being gunned down --
would in no way cause such a dilemma in Sister Lucy's or anyone else's mind. For
martyrs were legion in the history of the Church, and were well known to make
the Church stronger.
Nor did the alleged assassination attempt on John Paul II
in 1981 have anything to do with the year of 1960, or of a Divine punishment
concerning all mankind being imminent in 1957.
The above criteria would apply to the usurpation of
the Papacy at the spoiled Conclave of 1958, the onslaught of the counterfeit
church's Robber Council Vatican II, and the resulting apostasy "at the very top"
of the Vatican. (This "apostasy at the very top" has been alluded to since 1960
by a number of Church officials who have claimed to be in a position to know
something of the contents of the Third Secret.)
(See in section 2 on home part II --- "The Third Secret
of Fatima vs. What The Occupied Vatican Released" -
Jacinta's Vision of the Holy
Father -- and Other Prophecies indicating the Eclipse of the Church
Incredibly, there are
numerous prophecies over the centuries predicting exactly this scenario of persecution against the
Church and against the Pope in the latter days.
Two of these prophecies are from
St. Francis of Assisi near his death, and from Blessed Joachim (in 1202). See the article linked
on Section I on the Home Page,
"Warnings from Heaven Suppressed", and, "Prophecies for Searching
Souls" in Section II on the Home Page.
In addition, weighty Catholic authorities over
the centuries, including numerous Fathers of the Church, have written about this
time during the latter days of a supreme crisis in the Church resulting from an
occupied Vatican and an exiled Pope. (See "Scripture Scholars: Ancient and
Modern", linked in Section I on the Home Page.)
Furthermore, it must be asked in light of all
that has transpired: did Our Lady of
Fatima's warning that "the Holy Father would have much to suffer" refer to this
turn of events involving an exiled Pope?
Jacinto's "vision of the Pope" referred to on many Holy Cards devoted to her, -- is
still little known. It is little known even though it appears in the late,
celebrated historian William Thomas Walsh's important 1947 book, "Our Lady of
Jacinta's vision is of the Holy Father kneeling with his face in his
hands, and in dangerous circumstances. (This vision was received by Jacinta
while the three children were tending their flocks in the field, a few months
after the Miracle of the Sun on October 13, 1917.)
After describing the scene to Lucia and
Francisco, Jacinta asks Lucia if she can tell the people about her vision of the
"No,’ answered Lucia. ‘Don’t you see that makes part
of the secret? And then it will be discovered.”
Mr. Gary Giuffre comments
about this passage in
the "Warnings from Heaven Suppressed" article linked in Section I on
the home page:
"From this narrative, it is
evident that unusual circumstances involving the Pope make up the essence of the
Third Fatima Secret. It is also obvious that the Pope in Jacinta’s vision is not
securely quartered in the Vatican but is in a dangerous exile . . ."
Back to the Dynamics Surrounding
the 1958 Conclave itself:
Two days later (two days after the five minutes of white
smoke on October 26th when no Pope appeared) on October 28, 1958, Cardinal
Angelo Roncalli emerged onto the balcony and was presented
to the world as "Pope" John XXIII -- amidst the wild cheers of the worldwide
Judeo-Masonic Big Press. The major media immediately dubbed Roncalli "Good Pope
The world powers of darkness wanted a true Pope
to be elected, but then to be shoved aside. Why?
So that the forces of darkness could then put their own fake, -- their own antipope
on the Chair of Peter (as it turns out, John XXIII), -- so that such a man would
not have the assistance of the Holy Ghost promised to true Popes, and therefore
would go along with, or even enthusiastically promote, the revolt against Christ
and His Church from within the Church's very own physical structures.
conditions, the long-prophesied "Eclipse of the Church" could be inaugurated by
the enemies of the Church as a demolition operation against the Catholic
Faithful, the Church, and the entire world -- without interference from their antipope who
had been placed on the Chair of Peter, and
without interference from the true Pope who would be kept in an almost
universally hidden exile and sophisticated captivity.
in our generation, have seen Our Lady of LaSalette's prophecy from that approved
1846 apparition come true. That prophecy said, in part: "The Church will be in
eclipse; the world we be in dismay."
Another part of the prophecy said that impurity
would fill the air like pestilence. What would that have meant to the people
alive in 1846? But, with the advent of radio a few decades later, television a
century later, and especially the internet available to the public 150 years
later, now the prophecy has come true in a dramatic manner. Even cell phones,
being carried by everyone from college students to octogenarians -- now pull
impure images "out of the air." "Impurity" indeed "fills the air" like
The LaSalette apparitions were
formally approved by both Pope Pius IX [1846-1878] and Pope Leo XIII
[1878-1903]. Pope Leo built a Basilica on the spot of the apparitions. (For expansion
on the numerous prophecies about what seems to be the present crisis in the
Church, see "Warnings from Heaven Suppressed" in Section I -- and -- "Prophecies
for Searching Souls" in Section II.)
I remember as a 4th and 5th grader how the nuns were sincerely joyous
seeing all the news coverage favorable to John XXIII and his coming Second Vatican Council.
The world was finally being won over to the Church! But that was not
what was happening. Catholics were being seduced into the Liturgical and
Doctrinal Revolution against
Christ and His Church -- by the first of a series of antipopes who had usurped
the Chair of Peter, -- antipopes backed by the Synagogue of Satan (Apoc: 2:9 and
3:9) and its right arm in destruction, the secret society of Freemasonry.
In case anyone is so far missing the point that John XXIII
was an anti-pope representing Freemasonry, and not a true Catholic Pope, let's
consider the following:
Leading Freemason Yves Marsaudon (state
master, Supreme Council of France Scottish Rite), praises John XXIII during his
time usurping the Chair of Peter: "The sense of universalism that is rampant in
Rome these days is very close to our purpose of existence . . . With all
our hearts we support the Revolution of John XXIII."
On the occasion of the
death of Pope John XXIII, June 3, 1963, Mexican Freemasonry paid for an ad which
was published in the June 4, 1963 issue of El Informador, a Mexican newspaper. It
read in part:
"THE MEXICAN WESTERN GRAND LODGE of free and accepted Masons, at
the death of
POPE JOHN XXIII, Publicly expresses its sorrow for the loss of this great man,
who made a revolution in the ideas, thoughts and forms of the Roman Catholic
liturgy. THE ENCYCLICALS "MOTHER AND TEACHER" and "PEACE ON EARTH" Made a
revolution in concepts favoring THE RIGHTS OF MAN AND HIS LIBERTY - Mankind has
lost a great man, and we the Freemasons recognize his elevated principles, his
humanitarianism and his condition as a GRAND LIBERAL. Guadalajara, Jalisco,
Mexico, June 3, 1963, THE MEXICAN WESTERN GRAND LODGE, Jose Guadalupe Zuno
Also, the above referenced prominent French
Freemasonic leader, Yves Marsaudon, dedicated his book, "Ecumenism as seen by a
Traditionalist Freemason", published circa 1964, to Pope
John XXIII and Pope
Paul VI. Viewing developments in
this light, it becomes clear why the antipopes following John XXIII and Paul VI
took the names, "John Paul I" and "John Paul II" -- to signal to the powers of
world darkness that these men were to carry on the work of the new "counterfeit
church of darkness" (to use the phrase of Blessed Anna Katrina Emmerick) and to
continue the demolition operation against the true Church from within Her own,
usurped structures. The message was this: we, the John Pauls, are carrying on the
destructive work of antipopes John
XXIII and Paul VI, and NOT the work of the true Popes, the work of the Catholic
Church, from St. Peter to Pope Pius XII in 1958. (The John Pauls were the first
occupants of the Chair of Peter in 2000 years to ever take two names.)
To underscore this point that a counterfeit
church was born on October 28, 1958, Rabbi Schmuley
Boteach made an astoundingly frank remark during a heated debate on the Joe
Scarborough Show in 2004 on MSNBC, shortly after the release of the movie, "The
Passion of the Christ". Rabbi Boteach stated that the Roman Catholic Church
was an "evil church" before 1958. In other words, the anti-Christ Rabbi revealed
that he and his comrades hated the true Church (from St. Peter to the end of the
reign of Pope Pius XII in 1958) but loved the "counterfeit church of darkness"
which Judeo-Masonry had launched in Rome after October 28, 1958 when their man,
John XXIII, had successfully usurped the Chair of Peter.
Here is Angelo Roncalli (the future
antipope John XXIII) being crowned Cardinal in the early 1950s
by the Masonic President of France, at Roncalli's request.
Roncalli, in the above picture, was absurdly
invoking an ancient tradition when the head of France was a Catholic Monarch
leading a Catholic nation. The anti-Catholic Revolution within the structures of
the Catholic Church began as soon as Roncalli illegally usurped the Chair of
Peter in 1958. -- (Even the Super "Pro-Vatican II" publication, "Inside the Vatican",
acknowledged in a September, 2004 article that, "There were certain
irregularities about the election during that 1958 conclave, as Cardinal Tisserant has himself acknowledged." !!!
Cardinal Tisserant was designated to preside over the proceedings of the 1958
John XXIII called the 2nd Vatican Council (1962-1965) as one of his first
major acts in 1959, accompanied by two contradictory explanations of how he got
the "inspiration." Anti-Pope Roncalli also made Msgr. John-Baptist Montini a
"Cardinal" as another one of his first major acts. Montini was promoted in 1956
by Time Magazine as one of
the candidates who was "in contention" to succeed Pius XII, even though Montini
was not a cardinal !!! Montini actually succeeded John XXIII (1958-1963) as
"Pope" Paul VI (1963-1978).
It was Montini who essentially changed the Mass, 5
of the sacraments, all the catechisms, abolished the Oath against Modernism
(initiated by Pope St. Pius X), took the order of exorcism out of the steps
required for Seminarians on the way to the priesthood, signed clear heresy
(Moslems pray to the same God as Catholics) and false moral teaching (heretics
have the RIGHT to spread their false doctrine in public) in the documents of Vatican II (something a true Pope has never done
and could never do).
The Enemies of God Have Brought
the Church, Humanly Speaking, to the Brink of Extinction. The Deception Has Been
So Clever that Most Catholics Still Support Their Destroyers
There is a matter of the UTMOST importance which most
Catholics are completely unaware.
In 1947, in response to requests from some of the eastern
Bishops, Pope Pius XII, in an infallible document, designated the words in the
Episcopal Consecration Rite for Bishops. (See "Proof that Paul VI
Invalidated the rite of the consecration for Bishops in 1968" in Section III on
the home page of this website.)
It is important to note that Pope Pius XII did not change
anything in the ancient Episcopal Consecration rite, which the Council of
Florence under Eugene IV declared infallibly, after the teaching of St. Thomas
Aquinas, had come to us in its essentials from Christ and the Apostles. All that
Pope Pius XII did was define which words in the lengthy rite were essential for
the consecration of Bishops. And here are the words which Pope Pius XII
designated as being essential for that form:
Fill up in Thy priest the perfection of Thy
ministry and sanctify him with the dew of Thy heavenly ointment, this thy
servant decked out with the ornaments of all beauty.
(Comple in sacerdote tuo ministerii tui summum, et ornamentis totius
glorificationis instructum coelestis unguenti rore sanctifica).
In 1969, ONLY 22 YEARS LATER, antipope Paul VI did what no
true Pope could ever do, namely, essentially change the form of a sacrament.
There are numerous quotes from Popes over many centuries that the Church has no
authority of over substance of the sacraments. (“It is well-known that to
the Church there belongs no right whatsoever to innovate anything on the
substance of the Sacraments.” - Pope St. Pius X, Ex quo nono, 1910).
As an agent of Satan, the second in the line of Vatican II
antipopes who had usurped the Chair of Peter due to the spoiled conclave of
1958, Paul VI diabolically invalidated the rite for the
consecration of bishops in 1969. PLEASE NOTE WELL: Paul VI removed EVERY WORD
from the essential form of this sacrament EXCEPT for the word "and". (To add
insult to injury, Paul VI stated that he took the NEW WORDS he subsituted for
the essential form in the rite of consecration of Bishops -- were taken from a
rite concocted by an antipope name Hippolytus who lived in the 3rd century.
This sacramental vandalism by Paul VI, obviously, resulted in the invalidation of all Bishops
made in the New Rite since 1969, and thus resulted in the invalidation of all
the priests "ordained" by
these "Bishops" since 1969, and, therefore, also invalidated all the sacraments except baptism
performed by these New Rite, NewChurch "priests" since 1969.
The enemies of the
Church, under antipopes Benedict XVI and Francis I, are right now trying to
complete the process of ending Apostolic Succession through the spoiled rite of
consecration for Bishops.
It cost the master conspirator, Benedict XVI (Joseph
Ratzinger) - it costs him nothing to say or write pius, orthodox words part of
the time, or to "bring back the Latin Mass", when he knows the destruction of
the Catholic episcopacy is proceeding apace, and that almost all the Latin
Masses are being "said" by invalid priests. Same goes for antipope Francis I. (Bergolio)
There are less than 20 Pius XII bishops left alive who
have both valid orders and a Papal appointment. (There may be others who were
made behind the Iron Curtain in the years from 1940 to 1989.) The bishops made
by the Society of Pius X, for instance, are valid -- but have no Papal
This is the real drama, the real Passion of the Church,
being played out, while the overwhelming majority of Catholics have never
learned of this information, or, if they have, close their eyes and blindly hug
tightly the fairy tales put out for their consumption by such gate-keeper
operations as the EWTN cable TV Network.
Millions of sincere, concerned Catholics move
forward in a fog, oblivious to the destruction being wreaked on Christ's Church,
and oblivious to the attempts by the "Vatican II Popes" to destroy the Church
(per the impossible) and nullify Christ's promises.
At the same time, the few who are sounding the alarm and
at least wanting to do what is humanly possible to save the Church, if they
could figure out what to do, -- are called "schismatics" by the unaware
Catholics who are drowning in the deceptions and the illusions manufactured for
them by the counterfeit church of darkness which is occupying the Catholic
structures worldwide, from the Vatican down to the parish church buildings.
As Blessed Anna Katrina Emmerich said regarding these times (paraphrase), "Many
fought on, but they didn't seem to know what it was all about."
Most Important Line Written
About the Crisis in the Church since 1958
The most important line since the 1958
conclave and Vatican Council II (1962-1965) was written by Mr. Gary Giuffre in
his article, "The Pope who will wear Red" published circa 1989.
After explaining that the holy mystic, Blessed
Anna Katrina Emmerick, saw (circa 1821) a "counterfeit church" usurping the
structures of the Roman Catholic Church, which she saw happening in an era when
priests said mass facing the people (which era began circa 1966, and was
prevalent worldwide by 1974), Mr. Giuffre wrote this insightful line:
This false church of
darkness could not deceive the faithful if it did not present to the world its
own false “pope” or succession of “popes” as the “legitimate” authority in the
That line describes what has transpired before
the eyes of those old enough to have witnessed what has happened. As the
last five decades+ have unfolded, tens of
millions of Catholics since 1958 have followed
the evil program of the Vatican II anti-popes for only one reason: they were believing all the while they were
listening to, and following, true Popes.
CONCLUSION TO THE INTRODUCTION
Humanly speaking, the "Siri Investigation" has
gone "cold." Mr. Gary Giuffre's breakthrough articles appeared in 1988 and 1989.
Siri died in 1989. A few blockbuster items of confirming, circumstantial
evidence have appeared since 1989, but little else. Many of the prophecies
indicated that this would be the case.
As far as I know, almost all analysts and seers (except
St. Nicholas of Fluh, below) before
1958 who wrote about or commented upon the length of the coming "Eclipse of the
Church" and the coming exile of the Pope from Rome by the forces of anti-Christ
in the latter days -- seemed to believe that the "Eclipse of the Church" would
last only a few days, a few weeks, or a few years.
For instance, the main seer
of LaSalette, Melanie Calvet, who is smeared by the many deluded defenders of
the "Vatican II Popes" to this day,
in her later years circa 1890, stated about the coming crisis that, “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 (religious) houses . . ."
(See "Warnings from Heaven Suppressed", linked on the Home Page of this
We can now see with the benefit
of experience that this idea of a relatively short-lived "eclipse of the Church" has not been the case. With the benefit of hindsight,
the overwhelming (almost 100%) majority of people in the world do not know yet
about the spoiled Concalve of 1958 - after 50+ years.
Logically, though, it
makes sense that after the true Pope was elected and suppressed -- that the antipopes
would need decades to bring about the near total "Eclipse of the Church"
in all respects, which reality is now clearly before our eyes.
Many sincere Catholics, upon first seeing this
evidence, analysis, and reasoning, -- experience a "light bulb" moment for at
least a few seconds and realize that the "Siri Thesis" and the "Eclipse of the
Church", at least in broad strokes, explain everything about the current crisis
in the Church. But then, as it hits them what a "sea change" this would cause in
their world outlook and daily practice, the second reaction is to reflexively formulate
intellectual objections, for
instance, that if the "Siri Thesis" is correct --
then Christ's promise has failed, and the Gates of Hell have prevailed. But this
does not follow.
The true Pope, Pope Innocent II, was exiled from the Vatican
right after his election in 1130 A.D. for eight years (1130-1138), during which time antipope Anacletus II usurped the Chair of Peter and was accepted by all the prominent
families of Rome. Pope Innocent wandered throughout Europe until St. Bernard of Clairvaux
took up his cause and was instrumental in restoring the
true Pope to the Chair of Peter. The reader can find an account of this crisis
in the 1908 Catholic Encyclopedia, among other places.
There are also 39 major
antipopes recognized by the Catholic Church in the last 2000 years. Some of
these occupied Rome while the true Pope was in exile. But none of these
historical realities mean that Christ's promises have failed, of course. Nor
does the fact that the Pope is not visible to much of the world, or nearly all
of the world, nullify Christ's promises. Nor do long interregnums nullify
Every element of what is happening in this, our
day, in relation to the Church and the papacy -- has all happened before in
history. However, in the present crisis all these elements are coming together at
once, and in a more exacerbated form.
Satan's ultimate goal is to cut off the
Mass and the sacraments from the faithful, thus stifling the channels of
sanctifying grace. Take away the Pope, take away the Mass, and try to destroy
the Church. See the article in Section II: "Pope Leo's Vision, Satan's 100 Years of
Increased Power, and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
Years ago I got involved in a discussion thread
on the internet with many fine people (mostly SSPX followers and other
doctrinally traditional-minded Catholics) about the crisis in the Church. I was
putting forth the Siri Thesis as embodied in this "introduction" page. Near the end of it, a Society
of St. Pius X priest asked all SSPX followers to leave the thread. But before it
shut down, one participant said this to the group (paraphrase from memory):
"People! This is the hardest position to accept, but, once you understand it,
the hardest position to refute."
As explained below, it is reasonable to believe that
the Church Herself, being the Mystical Body of Christ, will undergo the phases
of the life of Christ Himself, including the Crucifixion, seeming (in the case
of the Church) death, and the Resurrection. After seeing and truly understanding the
information and evidence on this page and on this website with regard to why the "Vatican II Popes"
must be antipopes, the newly awakened Catholic is left with one defense: "It
can't happen here -- not during my lifetime." But it has happened here. (See the
section of "Answers to Some Objections Against the Siri Thesis" at the bottom of
this home page.) Pope Pius IX (1846-1878) stated that if the Church had a fifth
mark (in addition to "One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic") -- it would be
To quote Mr. Gary Giuffre again on this point, "Why do people
find it easier to believe that the Church has failed, rather than that the
Church is being persecuted?"
While having no idea how this dire, apocalyptic
crisis will be resolved, we can rest assured that it will be, as Christ
will fulfill His promise to be with the Church always.
With less than twenty bishops appointed under Pope Pius
XII left in the world, and with no more than a few hundred certainly valid
bishops -- (consecrated in the traditional Catholic rite, as opposed to the clearly
invalid 1969 New Rite of consecration of bishops imposed by antipope Paul VI) -- still alive, we seem
to be catapulting towards the prophecy of St. Nicholas of Fluh (circa 1520), as
recorded in the book Catholic Prophecy by Yves Dupont:
“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
But notice that the prophecy says "seem to be
extinguished", but not actually extinguished. We know that the Church will not
fail, as Christ promised that He will be with His Church always. And St.
Nicholas's prophecy reflects this reality in the final line.
So, to end this
introduction to whitesmoke1958.com on the proper, positive note, let us look at a passage written by the
late Trappist monk, Fr. Urban Snyder:
“The Church is the Mystical
Christ and as such must relive through the ages the mysteries of the Saviour’s
life, Good Friday not excepted. Calvary is the essence of the mystery of
Redemption . . .
“. . . those writers do a great disservice to souls who assert that this or that
thing cannot happen to the Church, or the Papacy, or the majority of the
faithful. When Peter spoke like that, the Lord said to him: ‘Get thee behind Me,
Satan.’ Mutatis mutandis, anything can happen to the Church, and in fact may be
predicted to happen, if it happened in the life of Our Lord. For the Church is
His Mystical Body and the disciple is not above the Master . . .
“It follows therefore that the Church can be betrayed and made a prisoner; can
be buffeted, spat upon, be made to look a fool; she can be defamed, abandoned,
condemned; she can be damaged structurally and disfigured, like the Lord’s
physical members were; in a word, she can be crucified and [seemingly] put to
death – but not for long!
“From three o’clock on Good Friday until three A.M. on Easter was only
thirty-six hours. And as there was a faithful remnant left to Jesus even then,
so will it be in the Good Friday of the Church; there will be a faithful few to
wait in sorrow for the Church’s Resurrection, which will burst like lightning
upon God’s enemies.” (From Kyrie Eleison Newsletter, 19 March
1974, quoted by Hutton Gibson in the first pages of his book published in the
late 1970s, “Paul VI: Legacy Catholicism?” – which is where I discovered it.)
And, it was an article published by reporter
Hubert Remy of France in 1986 which caused Mr. Gary Giuffre to begin serious
work on the Siri Thesis. This article, "The Pope - Could He Be Cardinal Siri?"
is found linked in Section II below. We conclude this introduction to our
whitesmoke1958.com home page with the same lines with which Mr. Remy concluded
his 1986 article:
. . . we leave to the historians and theologians
the care to study this question thoroughly and to reply to it. We simply leave
this grave witness."
