"It is granted to few to recognize the true Church amid the darkness of so many schisms and heresies,
and to fewer still so to love the truth which they have seen as to fly to its embrace." -St. Robert Bellarmine
"The Hostage Pope", His Holiness, Gregory XVII
Although betrayed by His Cardinals beginning on the day of His Divine Election, October 26, 1958 A.D., put under constant surveillance, a documented death-threat, and having absolutely no temporal arm to turn to for help- Pope Gregory XVII, by a near miraculous occurrence shortly before His "unforeseen" death on May 2, 1989 A.D., did perform the proper actions to carry on the True Hierarchy (Petrine Mission) of the True Church.

"I see the Holy Father in great distress. He lives in another palace and receives only a few in his presence. If the wicked party know their own great strength, they would even now have made an attack. I fear the Holy Father will suffer many tribulations before his death, for I see the black counterfeit church gaining ground, I see its fatal influence on the public. The distress of the Holy Father and of the Church is really so great that one ought to pray to God day and night. I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope...The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation (Rooting out, destruction) of the dark church." -Prophetic Vision of Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824 A.D.) Augustinian Nun, Stigmatist from the book, The Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich, by Very Rev. Carl E. Schmoger, C.SS.R, Vol. ii, pages (Ibid, pages 292-293)
The Victim Soul (Venerable Anne-Catherine Emmerich) Prophetically Spoke of the True Pope in Exile
"In the Passion of Christ nobody stand up to say one word to protect Our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Passion of the Church, who stand up to protect the true pope Gregory XVII in Exile? Nobody." -Fr. Khoat Tran (written statement 05/20/06)
A heroric priest [Fr. Khoat Tran] was able to locate, and have a clandestine meeting with the Hostage Pope, Gregory XVII- on June 14th, 1988. The following photo taken moments after Fr. Khoat privately met with His Holiness records this Historical event (see time stamp -lower right corner 88-6-14)
(L/R) Picture of Fr. Khoat Tran, His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII, and one of the Hostage Pope's wicked captors, Msgr. Grone
(June 14th, 1988 A.D., Istituto Ravasco Convent- Roma, Italia)
Fr. Khoat had several audiences with Pope Gregory XVII, after this initial one. As he emerged from the meeting with Pope Gregory XVII (where His Holiness confided to Fr. Khoat that his captors could *kill him at anytime) Fr. Khoat handed his camera to a person who was standing in the room, and asked him to take some quick pictures. Again, this was right in the heart of enemy territory (i.e. notice the picture of Antipope John Paul II in the upper right corner). This Monsignor Grone- who posed to the world as one of the Cardinal's household (in fact his official Secretary) - was just the opposite. Fr. Khoat related later that he (Mgsr. Grone) was an enemy of de fide, whose duty it was to control Pope Gregory XVII. Grone adamantly tried to stop the picture from being taken. Note the look on his (Grone's) face, and the gestures he is making with his hands! It is fitting that Our Pope presented himself with dignity: he holds his hands to his cassock and stands firm. Also, look at his eyes, closely (see excerpt of Fr. Khoat's sermon below).
*"If the prisoner martyr (Pope) directs a call, it will be forbidden, under pain of torture and death, for any kingdom to rush in response to his call." (Prophecy of Marie-Julie Jahenny [Aug 10, 1880], about Gregory XVII).
Pope Gregory XVII instructed Father Khoat to return later to the convent saying, "Come back here at eight o'clock tonight my secretary will be gone then."
Fr. Khoat obeyed, and brought a trusted contact, Monsignor Carlo Taramasso, with him from nearby Santa Marinella (and eventually two more trusted witnesses were summoned: which included the well-known Italian prelate, His Excellency, Archbishop Arrigo Pintonello).
there will be great tribulations
"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." -Pope Pius XII
a schism will be produced on the...
"The election of Jean XXIII was illegitimate" [null, void, worthless]...
"It was willed and PLANNED for by forces alien to the Holy Spirit."...
"It is completely ridiculous to say that any cardinal would have been elected."
-"Cardinal" Tisserant, Freemason and Dean (Head) of the 1958 Conclave
occasion of the election of the pope
At the 1958 Conclave
on October 26th:
"Siri, [according to FBI sources], obtained the necessary votes and was elected Pope Gregory XVII". (Declassified U.S. Department of State secret dispatch, "John XXIII", issue date: November 20, 1958, declassified: November 11, 1974 [Also see]
U.S. Department of State secret file "Cardinal Siri", issue date: April 10, 1961, declassified: February 28, 1994.)
one who will be
'called' the true pope, but he will NOT be...
"The Church has
no enemies." -Antipope John XXIII (Enemy #1), speech from the balcony of St. Peter's, Oct. 28, 1958. The perfidious media would coin him, "Good Pope John".
Antipope John XXIII wasted no time with his plan to subvert the entire Catholic Church with a "new gospel" which was inaugurated at his Apostate Vatican II Council; whose false teachings have thrown the "Church" and the temporal sphere into unprecedented chaos.
[He] will persecute
the TRUE pope
St. Peter's Chains,
Mamertine Prison (above)
(A.K.A Antipope John XXIII) would exile the true Pope, Gregory XVII, to Genoa, Italy where the Holy Father was a tortured captive of the Roncallian V-2 Masonic sect for more than 30 years.
This tragically fulfilled the words of Our Lady of Fatima that if her requests of prayer and penance were not regarded, "...the Holy Father will have much to suffer".
the majority will declare themselves for the antipope
"To adhere to a
false Bishop of Rome
[a false "pope"] is to be out of communion with the Church."
God tests us by letting us chose between light and darkness, between loving obedience to His Catholic laws or rejection of them.
If we sin He withdraws His light. If we are theologically ignorant, and lacking in sufficient devotion, we shall not achieve our salvation.
the True one [Pope] will remain the unique and uncontested pontiff
"Therefore, we must sweep the floor that is full of errors, we have to clean the dust of ambiguous presentations,
we have to pick up the litter
of the innovations, fantasies, frivolities in the liturgy.
Now at last, we know
[who was] the TRUE Pope.
Finding him took so long.
The restoration of the Papacy requires the commitment of all the true Catholics in the world. The news [of Pope Gregory XVII] has reached many countries in Europe. And everywhere the positive response of the faithful to the papacy restoration movement is growing." -Fr. Khoat Tran
(Prophecy of Ven. Bernard de Bustis, 15th c.): "...near the time of the Antichrist, will come... a most violent conflict with the Roman Church such that there will be great tribulations. At this time, a schism will be produced in the bosom of the Church on the occasion of the election of the pope... there is one who will be called the true pope, but he will not be truly so. He will persecute the true pope and all those who obey him, so that the majority will declare themselves for the antipope rather than for the true pope. But this antipope will have a sad end, and the true one will *REMAIN the unique and uncontested pontiff. ..."
*"Church Authority. Those who are received into the ecclesiastical hierarchy are not chosen by the people, or by secular authority,
but are placed in the degrees of power of orders by sacred ordination. In the supreme pontificate the person lawfully elected, and
freely accepting the election, receives the power of jurisdiction by divine right. All others receive jurisdiction by canonical mission (c. 109)."

The Historical Reality of Pope Gregorious XVII

The Rev. Fr. Peter Khoat Van Tran

Video scenes from the Mass (and Sermon) by The Rev. Fr. Peter Khoat Van Tran commemorating
the Centennial Birthday of His Holiness, Pope Gregory XVII, (Corpus Christi, TX May 20th, 2006)
"The Pope Gregory XVII come out to fulfill the message of the La Salette: 'Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of Antichrist.' The Pope Gregory XVII fulfilled the message, the prophecy, prophecies of the Fatima. You don't pray for the conversion of Russia, and Russia will bring the lot of error to whole world and Holy Father will suffer much. ...From the day I met Pope Gregory XVII, on June 14th 1988, I saw in his eye- and I never forget- the eye of suffering, the eye of sorrow, the eye of humility, the eye of love. His eye always follow me. Daytime, nighttime, whenever I wake up... I know he suffered too much. He suffered so much..." -Fr. Khoat (Excerpts from his sermon given in Corpus Christi, TX, May 20th 2006)
"...you must labor and diligently take care that the faith may be preserved amidst this great conspiracy of impious
men who attempt to tear it down and destroy it." (Mirari Vos, Encyclical of Pope Gregory XVI, August 15, 1832)

"He, Pope Gregory XVII, admitted in front of me that
'He was Pope Gregory XVII'. His (this) confirmation
took place in Rome on June 14, 1988."
(Written statement of Fr. Khoat, who met with
the Hidden Pontiff, His Holiness, Pope Gregory XVII)
Holy Mass (Pius V Missal)
"Therefore, we must sweep the floor that is full of
errors, we have to clean the dust of ambiguous
presentations, we have to pick up the litter of the
innovations, fantasies, frivolities in the liturgy.
Then we must search for the papacy until we find it.
Now at last, we know that the true pope was Giuseppe Siri.
Finding him took so long. The restoration of the Papacy
requires the commitment of all the true Catholics in the world.
The news... has reached many countries in Europe. And everywhere the positive response of the faithful to the papacy restoration movement is growing." -The Rev. Fr. Khoat Van Tran (from his sermon) Where is the Papacy?

that, outside of this ark, all that subsisted on the earth was destroyed...

they by necessity for salvation are entirely subject to the Roman Pontiff."

"... never will a storm have been so strong against any other Pontiff."
"Never, never will a storm have been so strong against any other Pontiff. He is already a martyr before undergoing martyrdom. He is suffering before the hour has come. But he offers his own person and the blood of his veins for all his torturers and for those who are making terrible attempts upon his life. How many exiles to be suffered!"
(Revelation of Maria Julia Jahenny d. 1941)
With Ecclesiastical Approval
Universal Testimony of the Fathers of the Early Church on The Apostasy:
"The apostasy of the city of Rome from the vicar of Christ and its destruction by Antichrist may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biegas, Suarrez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient paganism. ...Then the Church shall be scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning, invisible hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church."
-Henry Edward Cardinal Manning, The Present Crisis of the Holy See, 1861
"Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... The Church will be in eclipse..."
(Words spoken by Our Lady of La Salette to Melanie Calvat in 1846 A.D., a fully approved Church Apparition)
