    Vatican Insider ^ | May 11, 2017 | iacopo scaramuzzi
    What has been and is still being said on the secrets of Fatima are "useless speculation," because "what Fatima wanted to tell us was said publicly and openly" and Her message is "the core message of Christianity" that is "The announcement that Jesus has risen, that Jesus is alive, that Jesus is the Lord of history" Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of the Vatican State, said in an interview with the Vatican media on the eve of Pope Francis' 2-day journey in the Portuguese Marian sanctuary when, on the occasion of the centenary of the first apparitions of May 13 1917,...

    In two days, Pope Bergoglio will be in Fatima for what will be little more than a day trip. There is no reason to expect any change in the regime of Fatima revisionism that has buried the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary along with the text of the Third Secret in which the Blessed Virgin undoubtedly explains the enigmatic vision of the "Bishop dressed in White." An article in Crux magazine's online edition concerning the papal trip, by one Inés San Martín, confirms, with dreary predictability, the entire Vatican party line on Fatima. "Regarding Russia," she...

    Tomorrow, at Fatima, Pope Francis will canonize Jacinta and Francisco, further enshrining the Fatima event in the life of the Church by raising two of three Fatima seers to the altars. In yet another twist to the labyrinthine mystery of the Third Secret, however, the prayer he will recite at the Fatima shrine contains this astonishing declaration: "Hail Mother of Mercy, Lady of the white robe! At this place where one hundred years ago you showed all the designs of our God's mercy, I look upon your robe of light and, as bishop dressed in white [como bispo vestido de...

    In May of 2016, OnePeterFive received a public denial from the Vatican’s Press Office with regard to a story that we had published about the apparently still missing part of the Third Secret of Fatima. On 15 May 2016, Dr. Ingo Dollinger, a saintly priest and long-time friend of then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, had confirmed to us that Cardinal Ratzinger – shortly after the 26 June 2000 publication of the Third Secret of Fatima – had admitted to him that one part of that secret was still not published.However, in the 21 May 2016 Press Communique from the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI...

    The Pope Emeritus has branded as “pure inventions” the latest speculations on the third secret, according to which the Holy See has not published everything and in which the missing part speaks ill of the Council and of the liturgical reform. But it is certain that the matter will not be dismissed“A bad Council and a bad Mass.” This would presumably be the “true” content of the third secret of Fatima that the Vatican has alledgedly kept secret. But Joseph Ratzinger, who guarded it, published it and commented on it, brands as “pure invention” yet another alleged “revelation” on this...

    Today, on the Feast of Pentecost, I called Fr. Ingo Dollinger, a German priest and former professor of theology in Brasil, who is now quite elderly and physically weak. He has been a personal friend of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI for many years. Father Dollinger unexpectedly confirmed over the phone the following facts: Not long after the June 2000 publication of the Third Secret of Fatima by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger told Fr. Dollinger during an in-person conversation that there is still a part of the Third Secret that they have not published!...

Fuentes, Fr. Alonso, Fr. Schweigl ,Cardinal Oddi, Cardinal Ciappi, Fr. Malachi Martin, and even Cardinal Ratzinger (the future pope Benedict XVI) that the Third Secret of Fatima, not yet revealed by the Vatican, predicts a spiritual crisis in the bosom of the Church. In this presentation, I am going to elaborate on this theme, by demonstrating that this crisis is nothing less than a world...

    INTRODUCTION   As the second millennium gives way to the third, Pope John Paul II has decided to publish the text of the third part of the “secret of Fatima”. The twentieth century was one of the most crucial in human history, with its tragic and cruel events culminating in the assassination attempt on the “sweet Christ on earth”. Now a veil is drawn back on a series of events which make history and interpret it in depth, in a spiritual perspective alien to present-day attitudes, often tainted with rationalism. Throughout history there have been supernatural apparitions and signs which go to the heart...

    “The Fourth Secret of Fatima”Mainstream Italian Author Argues Third Secret of Fatima Not Entirely RevealedSecretary of Pope John XXIII Admits There Are Two Textsby John Vennari               On November 22, 2006, Antonio Socci’s Il Quarto Segreto di Fatima (The Fourth Secret of Fatima), hit bookstores in Italy. The author, after much investigation, comes to the conclusion that the Vatican has not formally released the entire Third Secret.              The importance of this book cannot be overemphasized. Mr. Socci is a famous, mainstream Italian author and TV anchor man, not associated with any “traditionalist” group. In fact, he began the project firmly believing...

    Mel Gibson says he cut scenes from his soon-to-be-re-released blockbuster film, "Passion of the Christ," to tone down the violence that earned it an R rating and kept some people from seeing it. Gibson said he received "truckloads of cards and letters” when the original film was released. "What came up again and again was that a lot of people were turned away because of the brutality in the film and were afraid to watch," he told Raymond Arroyo on EWTN’s "World Over Live" Friday night. "So I thought if I softened it up a bit, I could have a...

(May - October) in 1917, and the same day of the month on which Ali Agca attempted to assassinate the Pope in 1981. The very next day Vito Messori, one of Italy’s top journalists, whose interview of John Paul II became the best-selling book Crossing the threshold of Hope, broke the stunning news in the Italian daily...

    HERE'S A CURIOUS THOUGHT. Maybe the single most important person in the 20th century's long struggle against communism wasn't Ronald Reagan. Maybe it wasn't Karol Wojtyla or Margaret Thatcher, Lech Walesa or Václav Havel, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn or Mikhail Gorbachev. Maybe it wasn't anyone whose name might leap to a cold warrior's mind--for the most important figure in that long, dark struggle might have been a 10-year-old girl named Lucia dos Santos. You remember her, of course. It was Lucia who went out one day in 1917 with her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Martos to tend the family's sheep--and ended up...

Horvat The first thing that struck me when I heard that Sister Lucy had died at age 97 on February 13 was: “How sudden and unexpected this news is! It must have been a heart attack, or some other such unforeseen sudden illness.” The last seer died leaving many questions about the Fatima message unresolved. Los Angeles Times, June 27, 2000 But no, it was not. Coimbra Bishop Albino Cleto told Radio Renascença that “she had been weak for several weeks and had not left her cell.”...

    ROME (CNS) -- The man who shot Pope John Paul II in 1981, jailed Turkish terrorist Mehmet Ali Agca, has called on the Vatican to reveal what he claims are undisclosed elements of the secret of Fatima. Agca made the request in an "Open Letter to the Vatican" following the death of Carmelite Sister Lucia dos Santos, the last visionary from Fatima, Portugal. Agca's letter was sent to the Rome newspaper La Repubblica, which published it Feb. 20. For years, Agca has maintained that his shooting of the pope was tied to the secrets of Fatima and to the end...

    Cardinal Bertone Making Contradictions about Fatima, Once Again by Robert SungenisWill the disinformation campaign and cover up of Fatima ever cease? Not if that hierarch happens to be Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the long-time newsmaker and Vatican spokesman on Fatima. Needless to say, my inkling is that Bertone didn't get a chance to see Fr. Gruner's new film on Fatima, but perhaps they don't get PAX television over in Rome. In any case, it still amazes me to see the lengths these prelates will go to in order to dismiss Fatima's ominous portents. Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Amos: I know exactly what...

    Lucy and the Piratesby Mark FellowsFew revelations have been as unconvincing as the Vatican's version of the Third Secret of Fatima. Those who thought, or hoped, that the June 2000 unveiling of the CDF's booklet, The Message of Fatima [1] ended matters are probably surprised by the recent tumult over Fatima in the press. There should be no surprise: For over forty years nearly every tactic------silence, intimidation, bad theology, disinformation, and hired liars------have been used to bury the real Message of Fatima. Yet the cork continues to bob to the surface. The terrorist attacks on September 11 triggered a chain...

Bertone, Cardinal Ratzinger and Other Vatican Officials Regarding The Third Secret of Fatima and the Consecration of Russia Sister Lucy’s Fourth Memoir includes as part of the Fatima Message these words of the Virgin: “In Portugal the dogma of the faith will always be preserved, etc.” The use of “etc.” by Sister Lucy clearly means the Virgin had more to say, perhaps in the Third Secret, many Fatima scholars believed. A. Why does the Vision of the Third Secret published on June 26 contain no further words of Our Lady? B. What happened to the words...
