Lucien Gregoire was born in New England and completed his undergraduate and graduate work in Massachusetts schools. A war veteran, he spent most of his professional life as an officer of corporations in the United States and Europe. For a time, he was an international figure in cooperative education and has served on the boards of universities and secondary schools. He is the founding trustee of a host of charitable organizations; most notable of which provide education to mentally and physically impaired children.

Gregoire first met John Paul in the nineteen-sixties when the Pope was a little known bishop of a remote mountain province in Northern Italy.

Murder in the Vatican

The Revolutionary Life of John Paul
The CIA, OPUS DEI and the 1978 Murders

Product Description: Murder in the Vatican is two books in one book: The Revolutionary Life of John Paul (the only existing biography of the 33-day Pope) and The CIA, Opus Dei and the 1978 Murders. Why two books in one book? Unless one understands the mystery of his life - something the Vatican prefers to keep secret - The Secret Life of John Paul - one will never understand the mystery of his unwitnessed death. This book is in its fourth edition. In that time, I have changed little of what I have said about this good man's life other than to expand my account in this new edition to include stories of his childhood and his young life as a seminarian and as a priest. Yet, the mystery of his death and the deaths of those around him has involved an investigative process that has taken me to Italy and elsewhere in the world many times and spanned many years. I knew much more five years ago, than I knew five years before that, and I knew much more two years ago, than I knew five years before that, and I know much more today, than I did then. Here for the first time is the proof. How John Paul, and those around him, fell victim to twentieth century capitalism as it was jointly embraced by the Vatican and the United States. BEWARE OF THE USED BOOK MARKET: 2003, 2005 and 2006 editions do not include the complete biography or the solution to the murders. Only this 404 page 2008 edition includes both compete books.
