I was surprised to read, just this week, that some Catholics believe that the Vatican didn't reveal the "real" third secret. Seriously, is there a group that actually thinks this?
If you go to the video you find there are 35 reasons why there is a missing text of the 3rd secret.
Call me crazy but I didn’t know there was even a possibility of a missing secret.
There has been a great many cover-ups and whitewashings by the Vatican of the true warnings of Our Lady to the shepherd children!
I am not a graphics expert, but I have seen reasons for believing that the Vatican's "Third Secret" was not written in Sister Lucia's handwriting.
I should qualify that as the Sister Lucia who was one of the three shepherd visionaries -- since it may be that the Vatican also created a doppleganger of Sister Lucia to pose for photos with Pope John Paul II and to "verify" the Vatican's "Third Secret."
It’s been my belief, that some of the third secret was revealed only on the papal level, but perhaps I’m wrong. It’s been a long time since I re-read materials and discussed Fatima in depth.

>>> Is There a Missing Text of the Third Secret?.
Yes there is. I decoded it as “DRINK MORE OVALTINE”.
Sister Lucia had already given an indication for interpreting the third part of the secret in a letter to the Holy Father, dated 12 May 1982:
The third part of the secret refers to Our Lady’s words: If not [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated’ (13-VII-1917).
The third part of the secret is a symbolic revelation, referring to this part of the Message, conditioned by whether we accept or not what the Message itself asks of us: If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, etc.’.
Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors. And if we have not yet seen the complete fulfilment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides. If we do not reject the path of sin, hatred, revenge, injustice, violations of the rights of the human person, immorality and violence, etc.
And let us not say that it is God who is punishing us in this way; on the contrary it is people themselves who are preparing their own punishment. In his kindness God warns us and calls us to the right path, while respecting the freedom he has given us; hence people are responsible.
Seems pretty clear-cut to me. Muslim fanatics will one day attack the Vatican and there’ll be an awful bloody battle.
In 1917 this must have been hard to take literally, but these days it doesn’t feel “symbolic” at all.
Look at the Episcopal Church, if you “lived through” what has happened to it ... this is not so far fetched. FROM MY point of view, it destroyed itself and tried to take me down too. I left.
Have you even read what she wrote regarding the messages?
