Actually, I know quite a bit about Fatima. But it is private revelation and it hasn’t played a significant role in my spiritual life. And that’s fine, the church has always taught that you should study and pursue private, approved revelations only if they benefit your soul. And the message of Fatima doesn’t speak to everyone.

And I don’t believe that the hierarchy of the Church are working to suppress the wishes of Our Lady. I just don’t, I have more faith in the promises of Christ than that.

I doubt that you know anything about Fatima, or you would not make such a selfish statement. Fatima involved the most significant life changing event for all the 200+ million persons killed by the communists in the Europe, USSR, Asia, and South America and Africa. AND all the enslaved by the communists throughout the world to this day. It will be significant for the rest of the world when they come for them too.

Sister Lucia of Fatima in 1946 said that the whole world would become communist:

"While he was the pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Church in Ludlow, Massachusetts, I spent some time with Fr. Manuel Rocha, the interpreter selected for Mr. William Thomas Walsh, who wrote perhaps the most popular book on Fatima. Fr. Rocha told me that one of the questions Mr. Walsh asked him to translate to Sister Lucia during a three hour interview on the afternoon of July 15, 1946, while she was still Sister Maria das Dores, a Dorothean Sister at Vilar near Porto, Portugal, was ‘In your opinion, will every country, without exception, be overcome by communism?’ Her pale brown eyes staring into his, a ‘little dimple on each cheek,’ she answered, ‘Yes.’

"Fr. Rocha related to me that Mr. Walsh wanted to be positive about the answer and therefore repeated the question adding, ‘And does that mean the United States of America too?’ Sister Lucia answered, ‘Yes.’ Unbelievable in 1946, not so far fetched today is it?

For Portugal, Fatima was the most significant event in the last 100 years, if not in all it's history. By consecrating their country as the Blessed Mother asked, the undefeatable anti-Catholic government was toppled almost overnight, Portugal avoided the communist civil war just across the border, which decimated Spain, AND Portugal altogether avoided the Second World War.
