Pope Gregory XVII was elected on October 26, 1958, at the Conclave held after the death of Pope Pius XII.
His election, acceptance, name, and Papacy were kept well hidden by the enemies of Holy Mother Church, already placed in the highest places.
To the world, His Holiness would only be known as Cardinal Archbishop Giuseppe (Joseph) Siri, of Genoa, Italy.
About Non-Priest Marcel Lefebvre:
Confidential Source: I asked him [Pope Gregory XVII],
"Is Lefebvre a mason?" And He replied, "What do you think?"
what did you take that to mean?
Confidential Source: Yes. He was telling
me yes, that Lefebvre was a mason.
About His Treatment at the Hand of His Captors:
Q: What have been the difficult times in your life --?
A: “I do not believe some things should be discussed publicly. I have lived a very long life, and I have known men … and traitors. But I have never revealed the names of the traitors. I do not
perform the work of the executioner. I know, however, how much it costs to speak the truth. They have not succeeded in making me ill, but they have succeeded in making me sad and depressed. But Jeremiah had enough
lamentations; there’s no need for me to add to them.”

About the Present Situation in the Church:
"The present situation in
the Church is one of the most grave in its history, for this time the challenge does not come from outer persecution, but from inner perversion [a series of antipopes who promote lies such as pro-sodomy, abusive liturgical
deformations, etc]. This is very grave. But the gates of hell will not prevail."
