The shenanigans with all this weaselling around with what the Third Secret refers to is troubling. Has any credible Catholic authority compiled all of the various statements about the meaning of the Third Secret? Presumably, if one says the "dogma of the faith" will be preserved in Portugal, by implication that seems to suggest elsewhere it won't be. And then some sort of violent chastizements following as with the original Fatima prophecy of the Russian Revolution and World War II. Why did or why would factions in the Vatican try to dismiss and poopoo the Third Secret? Wasn't it supposed to have been made public in 1960 when part of it allegedly would already be in the process of coming true according to Sr. Lucia? What was it that was coming true in the early 1960s? The great falling away, the great apostasy? You know, you sort of wonder why John XXIII didn't want to make it public.
