Since the death of Pius XII, the hierarchy in the Vatican have not been reliable sources for information on the messages of Fatima. John XXIII did not reveal the 3rd secret in 1960 as was requested of him by the Blessed Mother, and every since then it’s more of the same from the Vatican.
For anyone that wants to know about Fatima, should read the 3 volume set by Frere Michel De La Sainte Trinite:
The Whole Truth About Fatima: Volume I Science and the Facts
The Whole Truth about Fatima, Volume II: The Secret and the Church
The Whole Truth about Fatima: Volume III: The Third Secret
I never have believed the Vatican’s official bit about the 3rd message.
And, all the messages sound to me like they are quite geared to intensifying respect for, adoration of, submission to the caricatured pseudo-Mary personage the Vatican has elevated into sharing the “hypostatic union” with The Trinity.
Quite a clever thing hatched in the pit.
