The Third Secret of Fatima

Diabolic Wave

25 Diabolic Wave

Over the holidays, Cap continued to read and study about Fatima. She read letters which Lucy had written to her aunt  during the seventies. Lucy seemed to believe that the world was being demonically possessed. Possessed as in need of an excorcism. She wrote Skinner:

Fr Skinner,

   I believe that one of the lines in the third secret may be,  A diabolic wave will sweep the world. I think that Lucy believed that the world became possessed in that period. 

   Going out on a limb. I think that in looking at Lucy’s writings, one can discern elements of the third secret. Sister Lucy was humble about herself. She was resigned to a quiet and retired life in her cloister. When ever she seems to be boldly going out on a limb with a dramatic statement or line of thought, she is reflecting the Madonnas own thinking.

   Diabolical Disorientation. Sister Lucy made several references to Diabolical Disorientation during the 70’s. It is apparent from her letters that she believed that a diabolical wave was sweeping the planet.

   The argument could be made that after 1960, the world came to be possessed by the devil. Possessed, as in needing an exorcism. This was punishment upon the world and the Church for having disobeyed His Will.


Rosary every day to arm against diabolical disorientation

   In 1970 Sister Lucy wrote to a friend “People must recite the rosary every day. Our Lady repeated this in all her apparitions, as if to arm us in advance these times of diabolical disorientation, so that we would not let ourselves be fooled by false doctrines.”

Diabolical Disorientation Invading the World

   Speaking of those who reject the mediation of Mary, Sr Lucy says “This is a diabolical disorientation which is invading the world and misleading souls.”


Devil has Infiltrated Evil 

   “It is painful to see such a great disorientation in so many persons who occupy places of responsibility....It is because the devil has infiltrated evil under cover of good, and the blind are beginning to guide others, as the Lord tell us in His Gospel, and souls are letting themselves be deceived.”

War against the Rosary

   About the benefits of the Rosary, Sr Lucy says ”That is why the devil has waged such a war against it. And the worst is that he has succeeded in leading into error and deceiving souls having a heavy responsibility through the place which they occupy... They are blind men guiding other blind men.”

   “The decadence which exists in the world is without any doubt the consequence of the lack of the spirit of prayer. Foreseeing this disorientation, the Blessed Virgin recommends recitation of the Rosary with such insistence... The devil has unchained his struggle against it.

    In that period of time, 


Diabolic Wave

   In a letter to her nephew a Salesian priest in 1971, Sr Lucy wrote “I see by your letter that you are preoccupied by the disorientation of our time. It is indeed sad that so many persons let themselves be dominated by the diabolical wave sweeping over the world... Their principal fault is that they have abandoned prayer.


Sincerely hoping that You and I are not among the possessed,
