I didn't make this up, its from the Vatican website, INTERVIEW OF THE HOLY FATHER BENEDICT XVI WITH THE JOURNALISTS DURING THE FLIGHT TO PORTUGAL
Yes, Pope Benedict contradicted the script written by the Vatican Secretary of State in 2000. In 2000, the Vatican Secretary of State stated the Third Secret was in the past.

Some soi disant trads have the eyes of The Lynx and can spot rodents from a long distance away while others purporting to be Trads - like those in The Brick By Brick Bund, and other fearful communicants of the coterie of conservative catholics - have the eyes of moles and see only what is directly in front of them at the moment; and when it is pointed-out to them that what they believe at that moment is contradicted by official evidence issued from their same favorite sources, they ought at least, don't you think, confess confusion - at best?

Thank you for your patience.
