Poem:  The Inconvenient Truth   

            To some the truth is an inconvenience,
They rather avoid it through denial and connivance.  

            Truth is like life: Take it in entirety or not at all,
Without truth into degradation and misery would man fall.  

            Some people would not speak truth but rather deny,
Because of their friends who they’d rather not defy.  

            More and more this world has become a great façade,
Real and lasting truth comes from God.  

            In life, the truth first, foremost and forever,
This must be your goal; your life-long endeavor.   

            If the truth for you has become inconvenient,
Maybe you’ve become too lax and much too lenient.

Book cover of Church is in Eclipse

By Kenneth G Van Hoof 

When Cardinal Giuseppe Siri was elected Pope Gregory XVII at about 6 p.m. Rome time on October 26, 1958 and then forced to abdicate his rightful throne via threats against him, his family and the Church itself, the true Catholic Church entered into eclipse and has been in a state of eclipse ever since.
With the uncanonical election of “Cardinal” Angelo Roncalli on October 28th of that same year and the convening of the “wicked council” (as per the Fatima Secret), the Evil Forces realized their long-range Alta Vendita plan to take over the Papacy and hence, the Catholic Church. Because of this diabolical scheme an emerging diabolically inspired pantheistic world church (the Vatican II Novus Ordo (new order) sect) eclipsed the true light of the Catholic Faith by suppressing, changing or otherwise altering the doctrines and teachings of the True Church. Thus the Vatican II Council (1962-1965) and what it promulgates is not the Catholic Faith but the “Cult of Man,” dethroning God.
Therefore, what now occupies Rome, the Vatican itself, is a false hierarchy and no longer represents the True Catholic Church. It is as Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen has called it, “a counter-church … emptied of its divine content.” It has become as per the Emmerich prophecy, “the Church of Darkness.” It is the Great Harlot of Apocalypse 17 while the True Church with its true Pope has been eclipsed and exiled into the “wilderness” as per Apocalypse 12:6. Fatima was falsified, its secret suppressed, and Sister Lucy replaced with an imposter! As incredible as all this sounds, it is fully documented. This book took over 5 years of intense study, research, writing and editing to complete this exhaustive work.

The truth about the real crisis and condition of the Catholic Church is far too inconvenient and controversial to admit to.  They would rather deny it so as to not face the facts as they really are.  Of course, the Powers-That-Be that control not only the secular world but also the religious one, are perpetrating the greatest deception in the history of the Church.  Most people (traditionalists included) go along to get along.  In other words, they accept the deceptive propaganda and the popular consensus of opinion on this and that concerning what they perceive is the “Catholic Church.”  It is far too disturbing to them for them to even consider a truth that is “strange” or “out-of-place” – a truth that does not fit their worldview or their “church-view.”  (There are those traditionalists who, when seeing the crisis in the Church, have done their homework well, but have their thinking prepared for them by “wolves-in-sheep’s clothing” and their controlled opposition propaganda.  All is by design).

For the above reasons and most people won’t be able to really accept the shocking facts contained within this volume.  Some may recognize it as undeniable truth but deny it they will because it does not fit their “comfort zone.”  So this is not going to be a popular book but a very unpopular one.  Because of the controversial assortment of rare facts all assembled under one cover, it will be obscured at best and denounced and black-listed (suppressed) at worst.  Even the most traditional of Catholics will suppress this work.  So be it!

It must be said at this point that we did not rush in “where angels fear to go” but came to research this because of certain historical events at the time of the resignation of Benedict XVI and the election of his so-called successor, Bergoglio.  In research of these events led us directly to the Conclave of 1958 and surrounding related events that for the most part have been expunged from the pages of Catholic history.  This includes the Secret of Fatima and suppressed historical facts concerning Sister Lucia and a whole lot more.  Previous to this we had been where everyone else was in the traditionalist camp: Accepting the Post-Conciliar “Popes” as valid popes and pretty much a part of the “Recognize and Resist” neo-traditionalists.  That is, until we dug deeper and found the real evidence as to what had really happened a half century ago and since.  We did not willingly go there, but if we stand for truth (and we do) then we had to pursue the “leads” we found as we probed into the greatest mystery and deception of all time.  So here we are with a book that says all those things people really do not want to hear, but that so very much needs to said for the record whether believed or not.

We have been told by some traditionalists that on such matters as presented in this volume that we should remain silent.  But as Saint Thomas Moore cautions us: “Your silence is your consent!”  And we do not consent to what happened a half a century ago nor to what has transpired since as well as what is going on now in what was once the Catholic Church structure.  So we are taking the advice of Saint Catherine of Sienna:

“We’ve had enough exhortations to be silent!  CRY OUT WITH A HUNDRED THOUSAND TONGUES!  I see that the world is rotten because of silence!” 

The world is rotten because good men remain silent and do nothing to correct what is wrong.  Two good Popes gave us advice on what we should do.  Pope Felix III said:  “Not to oppose error, is to approve of it; and not to defend the truth is to suppress it; not to confound evil men when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them.”  Pope Leo the Great said, “He that sees another in error, and does not endeavor to correct it, testifies himself to be in error.” 

Furthermore, the instructions given to this author from the Necedah apparitions was to “Dig deeper – find the things that are wrong!”  Indeed!  We have done that.  This work is the result.  Take it for what it is.  We have simply taken the logical course in researching this and spending many hours documenting the facts as we came across them.

In this work on the eclipse of the True Catholic Church we have followed a logical course and sequence.  We first present suppressed facts concerning the events of the 1958 Conclave as well as any surrounding events, those leading up to the conclave and those that have transpired since then.  We’ve included any and all facts we could find that help document and clarify the truth regarding this eclipse of the Church.

Next we moved on to the Revolution in the Church and the setting up of a false church within its interior; the Vatican II “wicked” Council and all subsequent actions of the Post-Conciliar imposter “popes” as well as document events connected to and exposing the real truth concerning Fatima, the two Sister Lucys and more.

Towards the end of this work, we expose the neo-traditionalists (to the disconcerting of some, this means the SSSPX, the “Recognize and Resist” Catholic journalists and others) as controlled opposition.  (One must understand that both the so-called “Catholic” liberals and the Catholic traditionalists are under the control (although unknowingly in most cases) of the Freemasons embedded within the Church interior.  We show how all this leads to the establishment of the now existing counterfeit church masquerading as the “Catholic” Church but is in reality the Great Harlot of Apocalypse 17.  In the very last chapter, we show how all this leads to God’s Wrath that is to be inflicted upon the world culminating in the Divine Chastisement; and that all this is part of God’s Plan.

There has been an incredible amount of documentation for this work; even more that was not able to be included but is referenced for the reader to access.  To help present the most complete in’depth and comprehensive picture possible, we have provided a considerable number of appendices which when referenced in the text should be consulted.  We also provide sources and links to the original information cited.  To keep this work as current as possible before going to press or posting it on our website, we have included at least seven Research Updates.

In most all cases we have cited sources (websites, publications, documents, etc.) that are known for their impeccable research in certain specialized areas of their expertise.  We have cited original documents wherever possible.  We have also cited the actual original statements of witnesses and reputable authorities as well as cited the statements of the infiltrators and subversives themselves that are embedded within the Church structure.

We have furthermore, presented authentic Catholic prophecies as well as Marian prophecy which lends itself to this study.  Such prophecies show beyond a doubt, that these tribulations have already befallen the Church and are not referring to some yet coming events in the future.  Many of these events have already transpired in the last half-century and others are occurring now.  These include the 1958 Conclave, the exiled “Pope in red,” Rome having lost the Faith, the “wicked” council of Vatican II, the now existent counterfeit church, and more.  This is a very real scenario that is now unfolding upon us as this apocalyptic age comes to its climatic end.

We have also included predictions and prophetic statements that have proved uncannily accurate of such distinguished prelates as Cardinal Manning (1861), Father Sylvester Berry (1927), Bishop Fulton Sheen (1948) and others.

However, regardless of all the effort and care taken to make this work comprehensible and understandable to the average Catholic today or even to the traditionalist Catholic, most will not accept the bulk of any of this work.  Be that as it may, we did our best to present the truthful facts for the record no matter how inconvenient or unpopular they may be.  There are those so set in their view of the Church and “how things are” and are very opinionated who will never accept what is on these pages.  These are people whose minds are made up so “don’t confuse me with the facts!”  This work is not for them, but for the sincere truth seeker who wants to gain and better understand the confusing End Times he is living in; to penetrate through the greatest Deception of all time in our history as foretold in the book of Thessalonians.

So for those who are daring enough you may turn the page and inquire within.  We leave you with these words:

“Truth is like life; it has to be taken on its entirety or not at all…  We must welcome truth even if it reproaches and inconveniences us – even it it appears in the place where we thought it could not be.” 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       – Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.


            It sometimes is very hard to tell the truth, especially when that truth is very different from what is the generally held view; and especially when it is what Archbishop Sheen calls the “inconvenient truth” – a truth too disturbing to be accepted.  But tell the truth we must as it is our duty before God.  Even a child knows one must tell the truth.  This author’s little redheaded granddaughter when just six years old told her four year old brother:

“…Tell the truth.  It sometimes hard to tell the truth, but if you tell the truth, things will go better.” 

Christ told us:   “…You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  – John 8:32.

To be said before reading this volume:   


Come, Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them
the fire of Thy love.  Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created. 
And Thou shalt renew the face of The Earth.   

Let us pray:   

O God, Who didst instruct the hearts
of the faithful by the light of the
Holy Spirit; grant that, by the
same Spirit, we may be always
truly wise, and ever rejoice in His
consolation.  Through Jesus Christ
Our Lord.  Amen.
