The Third Secret of Fatima

Explanation

You saw the ruin of the world

      
The First Secret was the Vision of Hell. It lasted just a moment. Lucy said if it had lasted longer, they might have died. A moment later, Our Lady said  
“You saw Hell where the souls of poor sinners go.“ 

In the case of the Third Secret, Our Lady showed the children the Vision of the Bishop in White. 

Then, She explained the vision, beginning with the same words as the Second Secret. “You saw .... ”

The Secret weighed heavily on Pope John XXIII. In his Opening Speech to Vatican II, he wished to separate himself from those who foresaw trouble ahead. Several had read the secret with him. He assumed that a couple dozen more had been told the contents verbatim and that many more had the general idea. He felt is necessary to counter the pessimism of the third secret. Therefore in denying that pessimism he chose to use the word most associated with the first line of the secret. He attacked those who saw “ruin and calamity”. “He mocked, disdainfully, those whom he called ‘prophets of doom.’

And there was no doubt among any of us that he was speaking of the three prophets of Fatima, toward whom he was hostile.”said Malachi Martin who had seen the third secret in his capacity as trusted assistant to Cardinal Bea.

 

Half in Ruins

   
Lucy described the Vision of the Bishop in White in a city half in ruins. Frere Michel says “
The Church was falling into ruin but only by half, because there still existed Catholics whose innocent souls had not let themselves be perverted by heresy.


Lamentable Ruins.

   
“It is notable that at the end of the Sixties Sister Lucy was alarmed at the campaigns that the progressivists were waging, even in Portugal, against the devotion of the Holy Rosary. She wrote at the time to Father Umberto Pasquale: “We see, alas, the lamentable ruins that the demon has caused.’ “


In order to save souls, God wished to establish the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays.


In the apparition of June 13 1917, Our Lady said that in order to save souls, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.” Frere Michel says that ”since God has decided to manifest more and more His great design of love, which is to grant all graces to men through the mediation of the Immaculate Virgin, it seems that their refusal to submit with docility to what God wills is a fault which most gravely wounds His Heart. And for which He no longer finds in Himself any inclination to pardon them..”

 

Reparation. Later, in connection with the Request for the Consecration of Russia, Our Lady would say “So numerous are the souls which the justice of God condemns for sins committed against Me, that I come to ask for reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.” This is such a stunning statement. Most of the world and most Catholics go along their way believing that there are no sins against Our Lady, and certainly none which would merit eternal condemnation.

 

If the Holy Father had done so, many souls would have been saved.

Because he did not, the devil will infiltrate the Church.

     
The third line of the second secret is “If people will do what I ask, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.” 
The third line of the third secret follows the same pattern. “If the Holy Father had done so, many souls would have been saved.”


Because he did not, the devil will infiltrate the Church.”

   
This line is shocking at first reading. As one travels further down the patch of what Lucy, Our Lady and Her friends have to say, it becomes acceptable.

   
Here is a sad story. Because the world did not respond to Mary requests, evil entered the church. If the Holy Father had promoted the Communion of Reparation on First Saturdays, then Russia would have been consecrated, the world would have been converted and there would have been peace and an end to war.


This is the great danger from which Our Lady wished to save the Church and therefore the world. At Akita, Our Lady spoke the same words. “The devil will infiltrate the Church.” Cardinal Ratzinger said that the message of Akita is essentially the same as the content of the Third Secret.


Sister Lucy also spoke about the devil infiltrating the Church. “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.”


Malachi Martin wrote a book titled, Vatican A Novel. “It is a novel based on recent papal history. Although officially a work of fiction, Martin proposes the theory that the pope was murdered by the Soviet Union because he would abdicate the benign policy of his two predecessors, John XXIII and Paul VI, towards accommodating communism, and once again condemn it as an atheistic totalitarian ideology. Martin believed that the church structure was infiltrated for decades by illuminati agents who reached positions of high influence and rank, such as Jean-Marie Villot, at that time Cardinal Secretary of State.”


I will Decimate the People. 


Marie Julie Jahenny was perhaps the greatest stigmatist in the history of the Church.
She was a virgin clairvoyant and a holy person.

Marie Julie predicted numerous chastisements for sin that would fall on France and then the rest of the world. Earthquakes, destructive storms, famines, plagues, civil war, the closure of all churches, the slaughter of Christians, the destruction of Paris, and the Three Days of Darkness. Signs in the sky would announce the coming of the Great Monarch and the Angelic Pontiff.


I will Decimate the People.

    
She had a vision of a dialogue between Our Lord and Lucifer and the latter said "I will attack the Church. I will overthrow the Cross, I will decimate the people, I will deposit a great weakness of Faith in hearts. There will also be a great denial of religion.”


I will be Master of all things. 

  
“For a time I will be master of all things, everything will be under my control, even Your temple and all Your people."

 

These are The Last Times

   
In the Fuentes Interview, Lucy said “Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the Last Times of the world but She made me understand this for three reasons.


It should be remembered that Sister Lucy said she never saw Our Lady smile. In the 1957 interview, Sister Lucy says that the message that is supposed to be opened in 1960 “will be very sad for everyone, not one person will rejoice.”


John Vennari, in an article titled, Death of the Last Witness, says “It is noteworthy that in 1957, Sister Lucy said the devil was about to wage a decisive battle. By 1971, she says the devil has begun to succeed.”

Thus, the Third Secret was to be revealed in 1960 because then it would become more clear that the devil was infiltrating the Church.

And mount the throne of St Peter.

   
This does not mean the Pope John XXIII was a willing agent of the devil. But it does mean that John XXIII was Pope when the devil
“infiltrated the Church under cover of doing good.” 

   
In 1970, Sister Lucy wrote to a friend, Mother Martins, that 
“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.” 

So it is possible that while John XXIII meant well in his tragic effort to reform the Church, the effort was used by the devil to further his fight against God and souls. 

After John XXIII read the secret, he said it “does not refer to my pontificate.” This suggests that the secret was saying something about someone’s pontificate and that it seemed to point to him. He was in effect saying “it is not about me.” But it was still too close for comfort. This is the likely reason that John XXIII chose not to publish the secret. The third secret stands alone as the one marian apparition which has been suppressed. 


Malachi Martin was interviewed on the Art Bell radio program.

A listener called in and said that a Jesuit had confided to him that the secret speaks of a Pope who “would be under the control of Satin. Pope John was reeling, thinking that it could have been him.” Father Martin responds: “Yes, it seems that this person would have had a means of reading or would have been given the contents of the secret.” Then he got to the heart of the matter: “it is sufficiently vague to cause hesitation, but it seems to be that.”

Father Kramer said the when John XXIII read the secret, he turned white and nearly fainted.

 

There are also the words of Cardinal Ciappi, a highly respected theologian for the pontifical household for Pius XII through John Paul II. He said “In the third secret is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy will begin at the top.”


There will be a Council 

     
Cardinal Ratzinger told a friend that Our Lady warned that there would be an evil Council in the Church that would cause great scandal. See The Secret Warned Against Vatican Council II and the New Mass by Father Paul Kramer.

Our Lady foresaw that the council would be misused.

   
Cardinal Oddi spoke with Sister Lucy in 1985. Afterward, he said that “In my opinion, what is written is that in 1960, the Pope would have convoked a council from which, contrary to his intentions, there would arise many difficulties in the Church.”


So, in plain speech, what Oddi is saying is that the secret says that the pope will call a council of all the bishops, and that in that council grave mistakes will be made which affect the church and will cause serious problems and loss of faith. He deduced from Lucy’s words that the Secret “preannounced some grave error.”


It will be sad for everyone.

In the Fuentes interview, Lucy said “Father, how much time is there before 1960 arrives? It will be very sad for everyone, not one person will rejoice at all if beforehand the world does not pray and do penance. I am not able to give any other details because it is still a secret.  According to the will of the Most Holy Virgin, only the Holy Father and the Bishop of Fatima are permitted to know the secret, but they have chosen not to know it so that they would not be influenced.”


Cardinal will oppose Cardinal. Bishop against Bishop. The priests who revere me will scorned and opposed.

   
This is drawn from Our Lady of Akita.

It also fairly describes the ascendency of progressives and modernists in Vatican II and subsequent events. In the ecclesiastical struggle for power in the era of Vatican II, Our Lady was demoted.

   
In the decade following Vatican II, devotion to Mary plummeted. Rosary production dropped 90%.


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.” from the Fuentes Interview.


They will alter the Mass and the teaching of the Church. 

    
Msgr. Eugene Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, made the astonishing prophecy on the future upheavel in the Church:

    
"I am worried by the Blessed Virgin's messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul. … I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject Her ornaments and make Her feel remorse for Her historical past. 

"A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, 'Where have they taken Him?'"


-Roche, Pie XII Devant L'Historie, p. 52-53

Marie Julie Jahenny said that Our Lord spoke about a new mass whose words are “Odious in My Sight.”


There is a case to be made that the new mass is The Abomination of Desolation. John Vennari, in Death of the Last Witness, says “Meanwhile, the Church has been updated beyond recognition, far worse than it was in the early days of the revolution in 1973. So much so that if Pope Benedict XV, the reigning Pontiff in 1917, would now step into the average parish church during Sunday Mass, he would assume that a weird, liberal sect had commandeered the once-Catholic building: a sect that offers a loose Protestant liturgy and preaches perverse doctrine; a sect that sings insipid songs and allows sloven, immodest dress during worship; a sect that spends large sums of money renovating and de-Catholicizing the church interior; a sect where lay-people help give out Communion, indicating the sect does not believe in the Real Presence. He would also note from the dwindling numbers that the sect is dying.”


Catechism of Fatima. Church teaching has changed in a number of ways. Compare the teaching which is implicit in the events and words of Fatima to what is common in the main stream of Catholic thought today.


The devil will sweep a third of the clergy into his service.

   
This is a reference to Revelation 12:4.  “And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.”

    
Pope John Paul II gave a sermon at Fatima on May 13, 2000 on the Beautification of Francisco and Jacinta. He said “The message of Fátima is a call to conversion, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the ‘dragon’ whose ‘tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth.’ Man's final goal is heaven, his true home, where the heavenly Father awaits everyone with his merciful love.”
    
John Paul II refers to “the message of Fatima” but no where else in the Fatima messages is this passage found. It can be reasoned therefore that the passage must be in the third secret. “The message of Fatima” could be used as another name for the most famous message of Fatima which is the third secret. He was saying in effect that The Third Secret warns humanity against the dragon who will sweep away a third of the clergy into his service.


Paul VI, speaking years earlier in the same plaza, referred to the same page of Apocalypse in his sermon on the fiftieth anniversary of the apparitions.

 

Socci hypothesizes that a deal was struck in the Sacred Palaces between the pro and anti fatima sections that would allow John Paul to reveal the contents of the third secret indirectly, so that the astute would get the message and the Church could say in good conscience that the third secret had been in revealed.


The Hadcock Commentary of the Douay-Rheims Bible.


Father Paul Kramer says that the image of one third of the stars of Heaven has been interpreted to refer to “bishops and eminent persons who fell under the weight of persecution and apostacized.”


In The Book of Destiny by Father Herman Kramer, published in 1956 with an imprimatur, one third of the stars is interpreted to mean that one third of the clergy will follow the dragon. One third of the consecrated souls will be in “the service of the devil, working to destroy the Church from within.” 


“Commenting on Apoc. 12:3-4, Father Herman B. Kramer, in The Book of Destiny, points out that the red dragon — a sign of the devil which could also symbolize Communism because red is Communism’s emblematic color — brings the Church into great distress by undermining it from within. Father Herman Kramer tells us that, in reference to the one-third of the stars of heaven, “This is one-third of the clergy” and that “‘one-third’ of the stars shall follow the dragon”.(2) Thus, one-third of the Catholic clergy will work for the devil, possibly under the influence of Communism, to destroy the Church from within.” 


Supporters of the Devil   

   
Sister Lucy also brings up the idea that numerous clergy were working for the devil and not for Our Lady. In a letter in 1970, speaking of liberals and dangerous innovators in the Church, Sister Lucy says “We see how supporters of the devil work for evil and how they fear nothing.... They always go forward with intrepid audacity. 

 

That one so humble as Sr Lucy has spoken so strongly suggests that she speaks about the secret. 


The beast will overcome pastors. The flock will be abandoned and scattered. Wolves will ravage the flock and drag many to hell.


In Sister Lucy’s letters can be found a recognition of the Great Battle between Satan and Our Lady. The themes include: Overcoming consecrated souls, souls abandoned by their leaders in the midst of wolves, the seizing of the unprotected sheep, and the dragging of souls to hell.

    
Speaking about the Decisive Battle between Mary and Satan, Sister Lucy says 
“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God, and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus, the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving the souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.”


Wolves.

    
At the end of Benedict’s installation Mass on April 24, 2005, he said “Pray for me, that I may not flee in fear of the wolves.”

The use of the word wolves by Pope Benedict would seem out of place unless one were to realize that he was speaking in the context of the Third Secret. He is in effect revealing part the Third Secret. See Wolves and the Third Secret on this site. 


Padre Pio and Rapacious Wolves

   
“The flock is dispersed when the pastors ally themselves with the enemies of the Truth of Christ.  All of the forms of power made deaf to the will and the authority of the Heart of God are rapacious wolves.”


Drag to Hell. 

   
Sister Lucy continued, “Religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag numerous souls to hell.” 


Final Impenitence.

   
“The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.”
 


Sister Lucy added that “Our Lady was always sad”.


A diabolic wave will sweep the world.

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.”

“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.

   

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.

 

Altars will be stripped and churches will be sacked. 

   
This is drawn from Our Lady of Akita. This has already happened figuratively. Churches were once places of beautiful architecture, statues, stained glass, magnificent altars, and ornaments. Now they tend toward denuded boxes.

   
In the Vision of the Bishop in White, there is a war in which the pope is killed and then the Cardinals, Bishops, priests and clergy. In such a war, it is likely that churches will be physically sacked.

   
St. Robert Bellarmine: “When we enter ornate and clean Basilicas, adorned with crosses, sacred images, altars, and burning lamps, we most easily conceive devotion. But, on the other hand, when we enter the temples of the heretics, where there is nothing except a chair for preaching and a wooden table for making a meal, we feel ourselves to be entering a profane hall and not the house of God."  Octava Controversia Generalis, liber II, Controversia Quinta, caput xxxi.


In Portugal, the Dogmas of the Faith will always be preserved, but elsewhere they will be lost. 


The following is drawn from Frere Michel’s The Whole Truth about Fatima. 


“We can do no better than to quote Father Alonso’s judicious commentary here:

“In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved”: The phrase most clearly implies a critical state of Faith, which other nations will suffer, that is to say, a crisis of Faith; whereas Portugal will preserve its Faith.”


Terrible things.

   
“In the period preceding the great triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, terrible things are to happen. These form the content of the third part of the Secret. What are they? If ‘in Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved’... it can be clearly deduced from this that in other parts of the Church these dogmas are going to become obscure or even lost altogether. Thus it is quite possible that, in this intermediate period which is in question (after 1960 and before the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary), the text makes concrete references to the crisis of the Faith of the Church and to the negligence of the pastors themselves.”


Father Schweigl, professor of the Gregorian, was sent by Pius XXII to interview Sister Lucy. Upon return, he told a fellow Jesuit that the Third Secret had two parts. One had to do with the Pope and the other was the logical extension of the phrase “In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved...”

  

If the Holy Father had Consecrated Russia to My Immaculate Heart, the world would have been converted and there would have been peace.


The Consecration of Russia should have been - based on what Lucia said - an immense event for the whole Catholic Church, which in every corner of the planet would share in a great rite of expiation and consecration for that unfortunate nation, entrusting itself universally to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

There would have been “an overthrow of the mentality dominating the modern world.”


What Should have happened and what did happen

   
“What if we had done what God wanted? The story of of the last century would have been something like this. 

At Fatima, Our Lady asked for people to recite the rosary. A growing number of people began reciting the rosary. They began to convert their lives. A powerful force began to move in the spiritual lives of many.

   
In 1925, Our Lady asked for the Communions of Reparation on First Saturdays. Word spread. The graces earned by the Rosaries encouraged the Church to promote the devotion. Soon many people were doing the First Saturdays.

   
In 1929, Our Lady asked for the Consecration of Russia. The graces earned by the Rosaries and First Saturdays encouraged Pius XI. In 1931, the Pope in union with all the Bishops of the World Consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It was an “immense event for the whole Catholic Church, which in every corner of the planet” shared “in a great rite of expiation and consecration for that unfortunate nation, entrusting itself universally to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

 
A wave of conversions swept Russia. The communists were driven from office. 

Our Lady kept Her word. Wars ceased. The Spanish Revolution did not occur. The Second World War did not occur.

The world was shocked at the conversion of Russia. Millions of hearts were touched. A wave of conversions began worldwide. There was “an overthrow of the mentality dominating the modern world.”

World leaders adopted Christian attitudes and policies. The Social Kingship of Christ was established.

All the various wars would not have occurred. The wars of communist expansion, the Chinese Communist Revolution, Korea ,Viet Nam and many others did not occur.

There would have been worldwide Peace and Prosperity.


Instead here is What Happened.

God sent a message to Mankind. God wished to manifest that all graces come to men through the mediation of Mary, the Spiritual Mother of Mankind. He sent Mary to speak to the world at Fatima. He created the greatest miracle in the history of mankind. Mary announced through the children three months ahead of time that She would perform a miracle so that people could see and believe that she was appearing to them. She named the place, the day, and the time.

    
At Fatima, Our Lady asked people to say the daily rosary. There was a limited response. A few years later, She appeared to Sister Lucy and asked for the First Saturdays of Reparation. But too few rosaries have been said. As a result, the Church and the people did not respond to the request for First Saturdays of Reparation. A few years later, Our Lady appeared again to Sister Lucy and asked for the Consecration of Russia.  Too few rosaries and too little reparation had been done. The Church and the Holy Father did not respond to the request.


War a punishment for Sin

   
Spain was chastised by a civil war. Portugal was spared for having been Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Mary had promised peace if Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart were established. If not, God would punish the world with hunger, war, and persecution of the Church and the Holy Father. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart was not promoted. World War II and communist expansion followed.

   
In 1957, Sister Lucy was interviewed by the postulator for the cause of the beatification of Jacinta and Francisco. In a number of ways, she touches on the subject matter of the Third Secret. She nearly gave away the secret. She announced that the secret was to be opened in 1960 because then it would be more clear. She was then silenced by the Vatican. 


The New Religion

   
Growing elements within the Church espoused a new set of values. Pope John XXIII announced the convocation of a Vatican Council of all the Bishops in the world. The modernists took over. A new religion supplanted the old but kept the outer form of the church. Those holding to traditional catholic truth were marginalized.


Devil enters the Church

   
The gates were opened for the devil to enter the Church. Sister Lucy said that a demonic wave swept the world due primarily to a lack of prayer. In effect the world became possessed. In the seventies, Sister Lucy spoke about the diabolical infiltration which was in progress. The Church came increasingly to serve the interests of a Masonic/Modernist world class. 


Lucy II

   
A person replaces Sister Lucy in her public appearances. Few notice. When Sister Lucy was interviewed by Father Fuentes in 1957, he described her as “very sad, very pale and emaciated.” 

When Sister Lucy was next seen, she was plump and cheerful. Photos show different facial bone structure. 


The devil is triumphant

   
The devil is triumphant over all but a few who continue to say the daily rosary, do the First Saturdays of Reparation, and wear her scapular.


God is rejected worldwide. 

  
Inside and outside the Church, souls have been indoctrinated in the new religion. Children have been sexually corrupted by the media. The harvest of souls has been abundant. The people have been nearly all possessed by the devil. 


God gets mad.

   
God had wanted men to submit to “His great design of love, which is to grant all graces to men through the mediation of the Immaculate Virgin. Their refusal to submit with docility to what God wills is a fault which most gravely wounds His Heart. And for which He no longer finds in Himself any inclination to pardon them. This sins seems unforgivable because for Our Savior, there is no crime more unpardonable than to despise His Most Holy Mother and to outrage Her Immaculate Heart, which is the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit. This is committing ‘the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will not be forgiven in this life or the next.’ “ 


God abandons the world to itself.

   
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” said Lucy.

“Many will be lost...Father, Many will be lost.”said Lucy.

to Father Lombardi.


Collapse of Society.

   
John Paul II quietly predicted the collapse of society. 
On May 13, 1982, one year after the assassination attempt, John Paul II made a pilgrimage to Fatima to thank Our Lady for her protection. He said that the Madonna was “preoccupied by the threats of Apostasy and of moral degradation which bring with them the collapse of society.”

 
The Holy Father had thoroughly studied the Third Secret and it’s surrounding documents during his recovery. He knows what is coming. When he speaks of apostasy and societal collapse, he speaks of the Third Secret. 


Then come civil war, the world wide war, finally the three days darkness.

   
We are approaching the time about which Jacinta spoke when she said “In the next war, nearly all will go to hell.”  Lucy said “One day, I went to her house to stay a little while with her. I found her seated on the bed, very pensive. ‘Jacinta, what are you thinking of?’ Jacinta replied, ‘About the war which will come. So many people will die, and almost all of them will go to hell.’ ”


On top of that will be the trumpets of Revelation. Lucy said the Secret related to Chapter Eight in Revelation. There will be Thunder, Lightning and Earthquake such as the world has never known. People will hear voices. Fire will fall from the sky. A world wide famine will follow. A mountain sized meteor will fall from into the sea. And a star will poison a part of the globe.


What if Russia had been consecrated?

    
The Russians knew that a traditionalist pope would open and publish the Third Secret. The words of the Madonna at Fatima were condemnatory toward Russia. In the second part of the secret, the Madonna speaks ill of Russia. In the Third Secret, Russia is cast in a negative light. It would announce the world’s last chance to avoid disaster.

   
The pope, if he were traditionalist and obedient to the Madonna, would then call for the Consecration of Russia at a given date in the future, perhaps in one year. Probably on Marian Feast Day. It would be a stunning condemnation of Russian Communism for which the leadership had no defense. They did not fear the American military. They felt they could survive a nuclear war. But the one thing that they feared the most, which all dictators fear, is an uprising. 

   
First the pope and the bishops would ask for daily rosary and the practice the Communion of Reparations on First Saturdays. They would call for  Penance and Reparation.  A year of penance would culminate in a ceremony involving all the worlds bishops in their dioceses and all the parishes. In many nations, in many languages. 

   
Beginning in Portugal at noon solar time as had the miracle of the sun. As the sun moved west, each diocese would join with their bishop, successor to one of the apostles, as the sun reached its zenith. Recife Brazil would be first to perform the Consecration in the Western hemisphere. Portland Maine would be the first in America. Pittsburgh would begin their ceremony a few minutes before Charleston South Carolina. Houston before Dallas and Dallas before Fargo. Eureka California would be last in the contiguous states. The procession of ceremonies would culminate in Rome twenty three hours later. On the day of the ceremony, all the churches in the world would be packed to overflowing. It would be the greatest participated event in the history of the world. 

   
People would be highly motivated because they would be rightly terrified by the contents of the secret. They would also have good cause to be angry with the soviets. In the persecution of ancient rome, 300,000 christians had been martyred. The communists in their war against God had killed 90,000,000 Christians.

   
In Russia, word would spread. First their would be disquiet. There would be immediately be a loss of prestige on the part of the leadership. The power of fear would begin to melt. There would be a falling away of support. Administrators would begin to defect. The people would begin to show their disrespect. They would begin slow downs and civil disobedience. There would be strikes and compounding labor unrest. The party would be powerless to stop the spreading atmosphere of rebellion.  They would be pelted and stoned. As months went on, the turmoil would increase. Over the course of a year, domestic unrest would grow to an intolerable level. Finally, the communists would be driven from office. 

    
However, it was not to be.


Because He did not, a war will begin in the reign of Peter II.  

   
In the second secret, Our Lady says “
But if people do not stop offending God, another even worse, will begin in the reign of Pius XI.” The same kind of expression is used here.

   
Peter II. In St Malachy’s the list of Popes, there is just one name left, Peter the Roman.

This would be Peter the Second. He will rule during a time of tribulations. The city of seven hills will be destroyed. The dreadful judge will judge the people.

   
Who will be Peter II. It is a long shot. It might be Cardinal Piacenza.

Cardinal Piacenza is successor to Cardinal Siri. Cardinal Siri was the hand picked successor of Pius XII. The legend is that Cardinal Siri was elected Pope but was pushed aside by outside influences, Masonic and Russian. Thereby casting a shadow on his successors. Hence, in the legend, the bishop in white is a bishop not the Pope. See the Siri Thesis.


When the world is illuminated by an unknown light, know that this is the Great Sign that God gives that he is about to punish the world with earthquakes, floods and famine.

  

Signum Magnum

   
A Great Sign will appear in the sky. A Woman clothed with the Sun, with the moon beneath her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. Malachi Martin said that John Paul II knew that the one world order “would not be built, at least not as men have configured it. He is waiting, rather, for an event that will fission human history, splitting the immediate past from the oncoming future. It will be an event on public view in the skies, in the oceans, and on the continental landmasses of this planet. It will particularly involve our human sun, which every day lights up and shines upon the valleys, the mountains and the plains of this earth for our eyes. But on the day of this event, it will not appear merely as the master star of our so-called solar system. Rather, it will be seen as the circumambient glory of the Woman whom the apostle describes as “clothed with the sun” and giving birth to “a child who will rule the nations with a scepter of iron.”


There will be Warning

    
Martin goes on to say “He has to admit that he, like everybody else, is in the dark as to when it will occur, although he does know some of the horrific details of that worldwide catastrophe. He knows also that it will not come without prior warning, but that only those already renewed in heart - and that would probably be a minority - will recognize it for what it is and make preparations for the tribulations that will follow.”


Illuminated by an unknown light

   
This is almost verbatim from the Second Secret, with one change. It is the world which will be illuminated, not just the night sky of Europe. This may be the Great Warning, the last chance to repent, when people will see their sins as God sees them. 

     
The great sign of the second secret was an unusual deep red borealis in the night sky over Europe. Lucy saw the red sky and recognized it to be the Madonna’s sign that world war II was about to begin. Interestingly, Hitler saw the same red sky from his forest retreat. He told his guests that it was an omen. Up to that time they had been successful through diplomacy. Now the time had come to shed blood. 


Russia will overrun Europe. The Holy Father will be killed and the Faithful will be martyred.


Russia is dominant in the Third Secret.
   
Cardinal Ottaviani said in 1957, "If there was one dominant element to the Third Secret, it is Russia.” One of the lessons of Mary’s apparitions at Fatima is that war is a punishment for sin. 

     

Russia will be God’s chosen instrument of Chastisement. 

   
In the Fuentes interview of 1957, Sister Lucy said that “Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation." 


As mentioned above, in the Fuentes interview of 1957, Sister Lucy said that Russia will be heaven’s chosen instrument of chastisement. The sentence before that was “Tell them Father that many times the Most Holy Virgin told my cousins Francisco and Jacinta, as well as myself, that many nations will disappear from the face of the earth. She said that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation." 

 
Who will be punished? The whole world. That these two sentences lie side by side suggests that Russia will be responsible for the disappearance of many nations. Most probably in a nuclear war.


The War to come.

   
In 1945 Sister Lucy let it be know that Jacinta’s vision of a suffering pope, war and hunger belonged to the future.

 

Sister Lucy recalled Jacinta’s vision. “Another time, (Lucy writes ) we went to the cave called Lapa do Cabeco. As soon as we got there, we prostrated on the ground, saying the prayers the Angel had taught us.

   
“After some time, Jacinta stood up and called to me: “Can’t you see all those highways and roads and fields full of people, who are crying with hunger and have nothing to eat? And the Holy Father in a church praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary? And so many people praying with him?”

   
“Some days later, she asked me: “Can I say that I saw the Holy Father and all those people?” “No. Don’t you see that that’s the part of the Secret? If you do, they’ll find out right away.: “All right! Then I’ll say nothing at all.”


Another time, Lucy said that “One day I went to Jacinta’s house to stay a little while with her. I found her on the bed, very pensive. ”Jacinta, what are you thinking of?” Jacinta replied, “About the war which will come. So many people will die. And almost all of them will go to hell.” “We must pray a lot to save souls from Hell. So many go there. So many. ...  So many people fall into hell. So many are in Hell.” 

    
“The Third Secret will be revealed during a great war. ”

There will be a war and during that war, the Secret will be revealed.


“The Third Secret will be revealed during a great war. ”

There will be a war and during that war, the Secret will be revealed.


“Russia will march upon all the nation of Europe, particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the dome of St Peter’s.  Italy will be severely tried by a great revolution, and Rome will be purified in blood for its many sins, especially those of impurity! The flock is about to be dispersed and the Pope must suffer greatly!”  Sister Elena Aiello.


"Russia, spurred on by Satan, will seek to dominate the whole world and, by bloody revolutions, will propagate her false teachings throughout all the nations, especially in Italy. The Church will be persecuted and the Pope and the priests shall suffer much." Aiello.


A great revolution in Rome

   
"Oh, what a horrible vision I see! A great revolution is going on in Rome! They are entering the Vatican. The Pope is all alone; he is praying. They are holding the Pope. They take him by force. They knock him down on the floor. They are tying him. Oh God! Oh God! They are kicking him. What a horrible scene! How dreadful!” Aiello


Red Flag over St. Peter's

   
"Flagstaffs (flying the Red Flag over St. Peter's dome and elsewhere) collapse, and power is gone out of the clubs of those evil brutes. These atheists are ever shouting: 'We don't want God to rule over us; we want Satan to be our master!'" Aiello.


Material Punishments are Certain

  
“Father, this is why my mission is not to indicate to the world the material punishments which are certain to come if the world does not pray and do penance beforehand. My mission is to indicate to everyone the imminent danger we are in of losing our souls for all eternity.”  This means that the dye has been cast. Material chastisements are not unavoidable. Individual souls may save themselves but the chastisements are on the way.”

   
“Each person must not only save his own soul but also all the souls that God has placed on our path.” Lucy


The Holy Father will be killed and the Faithful will be martyred.

    
This is from the Vision of the Bishop in White


Red flag over St Peters

    
Mother Elena Leonardi had been under special guidance of the famous Stigmatist Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, “Russia will march upon all the nations of Europe, particularly Italy, and will raise her flag over the dome of St. Peter's. Italy will be severely tried by a great revolution, and Rome will be purified in blood for its many sins, specially those of impurity. The flock is about to be dispersed and the Pope will suffer greatly."

 

Fire will fall from the sky.


This is a quote from Our Lady of Akita. The Madonna uses these very words. "As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. 

  
“Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. 


Chastisement by fire

     
Recently beatified Sister Elena Aiello was told by the Madonna “Once there was the chastisement by water, but if there is not a returning to God, there will come the chastisement by fire, which will cover the streets of the world with blood.”
 


Russia submerged in fire. 

   
To Sister Aiello, Our Lady said “See how Russia will burn!” Before my eyes there extended an immense field covered with flames and smoke, in which souls were submerged as if in a sea of fire!

  
Fire from the Angels. “And all this fire,” concluded the Madonna, “is not that which will fall from the hands of men, but will be hurled directly from the Angels (at the time of the great chastisement or “housecleaning” that will come upon the earth). Therefore I ask prayers, penance and sacrifice, so I may act as Mediatrix for my Son in order to save souls.”


Mother Elena Leonardi had been under special guidance of the famous Stigmatist Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Italy since she was nine. She was a victim soul, chosen by God to atone for Priests and sinners. The Eternal Father, Our Lord, The Virgin Mary, and Padre Pio appeared to her in visions and gave many important messages for the world from 1973 to 1983. The following is the message given by the Blessed Virgin

Mary:


Sea of Fire will descend

   
"An unforeseen fire will descend over the whole earth, and a great part of humanity will be destroyed. This will be a time of despair for the impious: with shouts and satanic blasphemy, they will beg to be covered by the mountains, and they will try to seek refuge in caverns, but to no avail. Those who remain will find God's mercy in my power and protection, while all who refuse to repent of their sins will perish in a sea of fire!"


Russia completely burned

  
"Blessed are those who at this time may be called truly devoted to Mary! My name is locked in your heart, my daughter. . . Russia will be almost completely burned."


Chapter 8 in Apocalypse

   
Sister Lucy said about the contents of the third secret, “It’s in the Gospel and in the Apocalypse, read them."

At another time, she referred specifically to Chapter 8.

 
Chapter 8  is about the Seven Trumpets. 

   
The Golden Censor. An angel who stood before the altar of God with a golden censor “took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake.” 

 

Jesus himself spoke of fire from the sky. “I am come to cast fire on the earth; and what will I, but that it be kindled?” 

 
Is it possible that this is the fire that Jesus wants to see fall upon the earth? That this cleansing will lead to Restoration of the Social Kingship of Christ. 


Oceans will flood. From one moment to the next millions of people will perish. 


In 1981, while speaking in Fulda, Germany to a group of intellectuals, John Paul II responded to questions about the Third Secret. He said that Lucia’s text does speak of chastisements. In response to another question, he stated that "the chastisements cannot be averted, it is too late." He stated that "the die was cast. [The chastisements] can be mitigated by praying the rosary." When asked, “What about the Third Secret of Fatima?  Should it not have already been published in 1960?”   John Paul’s reply was, “Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors… preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves.  On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the Oceans will flood whole areas of the earth and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired…” 

 

“Many want to know merely out of curiosity, or because of their taste for sensationalism, but they forget that "to know" implies for them a responsibility. It is dangerous to want to satisfy one's curiosity only, if one is convinced that we can do nothing against a catastrophe that has been predicted.... (At this point the Holy Father took hold of his Rosary and said:) Here is the remedy against all evil! Pray, pray and ask for nothing else.  Put everything in the hands of the Mother of God!"

 

John Paul II


Neues Europa version of the Third Secret.

   
Neues Europa, a german magazine, published a version of the Third Secret in 1963.  Cardinal Ottaviani has indicated that the core of the message “corresponds to the truth.” 

 
One can safely assume that where the words of John Paul II and Neues Europa agree, that those words are found in the Third Secret.

Here is an extract from the Neues Europa version:


Fire and smoke will fall from the sky, 

the waters of the oceans will be turned to steam, hurling their foam towards the sky; 

All that is standing will be cast down. 

Millions and millions of men will lose their lives from one hour to the next, 

those who remain living will envy those who are dead.


It seems that John Paul II and the Neues Europa agree that the oceans shall behave violently and cause the deaths of millions. 

    
Later, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger admitted in an interview with journalist, Vittorio Messori, that he had read the Third Secret of Fatima. Messori then tells how he questioned the Cardinal about the "secret": "Undenied versions are circulating in the world, I continue, which describe the contents of that "secret" as disquieting, apocalyptic, as warning of terrible sufferings. John Paul II himself, in his personal visit to Germany, seemed to confirm (albeit with prudent circumlocutions, privately, to a select group) the undeniably disconcerting contents of that text. Before him, Paul VI, during his pilgrimage to Fatima, also seems to have alluded to the "apocalyptic" themes of the "secret." Why was it never decided to make it public, if only to counter rash speculations?" Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger with Vittorio Messori, "The Ratzinger Report" (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1985), p. 109.

   
Cardinal Ratzinger's response, that revealing the Third Secret would nothing necessary for the Christian to know and that it "would mean exposing the Church to the danger of sensationalism, exploitation of the content," also seemed to "confirm (albeit with prudent circumlocutions)"that the contents of the Third Secret of Fatima did contain those "disconcerting" messages.

Beware America
 
St. Hildegard (d. 1179)  "Before the Comet comes, many nations, the good excepted, will be scoured with want and famine. The great nation in the ocean that is inhabited by people of different tribes and descent (USA?) by an earthquake, storm and tidal waves will be devastated. It will be divided, and in great part be submerged. That nation will also have many misfortunes at sea, and lose its colonies in the East through a Tiger and a Lion (two other nations?). The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. All sea coast cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of those cities does a person live according to the laws of God."

 ( )


Earthquakes and Cataclysms

   
Father Luigi Bianchi, author of The Secret of Fatima, asked Sister Lucy if the Third Secret involved earthquakes and cataclysms. She nodded yes. She was under obedience not to speak about certain things.


The suffering will be worse than the deluge... Such that the survivors will envy the dead.


The Survivors will envy the dead.

“The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day, recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests. 


Nations will annihilated. 

   
Our Lady says this in the Second Secret. Our Lady’s words to Sister Aiello suggest that the annihilation will result from heavenly fire.
 “If men do not amend their ways, a terrifying scourge of fire will come down from Heaven upon all the nations of the world, and men will be punished according to the debts contracted with Divine justice. There will be frightful moments for all, because Heaven will be joined with the earth, and all the un-Godly people will be destroyed, some nations will be purified, while others will disappear completely.”


“Destroyed by fire”, Our Lady of all Nations 

 

When all seems lost, I will raise up a Holy Father who is dear to me and the world will be made new.


Happy Ending

    
The good news is that there is a happy ending to the Third Secret. After the tears and the sorrows, there will arise a world far better than before. God will pour out His Spirit upon all flesh. A new earth. A place of joy and rejoicing.


“When all seems lost”. Our Lady uses those words in speaking to St Catherine Laboure, “The moment will come, the danger will be great, it will be thought that all seems lost. Then I will be with you.”


There will come a time when the Church seems to have been destroyed. When Satan seems to have triumphed. There will be no pope. Marie-Julie Jahenny saw that "there will not remain any vestige of the Holy Sacrifice, no apparent trace of faith. CONFUSION will be everywhere..."

   
"All the works approved by the infallible Church will cease to exist as they are today for a time. In this sorrowful annihilation, brilliant signs will be manifested on earth. If because of the wickedness of men Holy Church will be in darkness, the Lord will also send darkness that will stop the wicked in their search of wickedness. . . "


First will come the cleansing by fire, 

then the Resurrection of the Church, 

then the Outpouring of Spirit.


I will Pour Out My Spirit on All Flesh

   
Acts 2.17 Joel 2.28 And it shall come to pass, in the last days, (saith the Lord,) I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. 

And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy.

And I will show wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath: blood and fire, and vapour of smoke. see also Joel 2.30.

   

Great and Terrible Day of the Lord

   
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.


God's ultimate purpose in judging evil is not the destruction of mankind but a new creation:

"For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. But be glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and be glad in my people; no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping and the cry of distress. No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days, or an old man who does not fill out his days, for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed. They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labor in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their children with them. Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain, says the LORD." (Isaiah 65:17-25)
