  Cap arranged to met  Skinner a couple weeks later to continue where they left off. After they talked about the three papers, Cap began 

   “About the forth line, “the devil will infiltrate the Church”. At first, I thought the idea was beyond the pale, but the more I read, the more possible it becomes. Malachi Martin, the one who said that the third secret would fill the churches on Saturday night. He wrote a book titled, Vatican A Novel. Although it’s fictional, Martin proposes the theory that the Pope John Paul I was murdered by the Soviet Union because he would abdicate the accomodationist policy of his two predecessors, John XXIII and Paul VI. They did not want him to condemn the atheistic totalitarian ideology. Martin believed that the church structure was infiltrated for decades by masonic agents who reached positions of high influence.

 Bella Dodd, who was head of the communist party in American, claimed that she personally sent into the Catholic seminaries over 1,000 young men. And before she died, she reported that some of them had already become bishops. Lenin said that he would infiltrate and destroy the Catholic Church.

   I think the next line could be infiltrate 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.”

    I have read the three volumes you suggested. There is a fourth volume by a different member of the order. He makes a good case that Pope John was duped by the Russians. In a high stakes game of world political poker, the pope had four of a kind and the Russians had a pair. But he dazzled himself and threw in his hand, thinking he had been the master of a political success. He forbade criticism of communism.

   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.” 

 Many believe that it is possible that John XXIII meant well in his effort to reform the Church, but 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 negative 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. 

   On the Art Bell radio program. A listener called in and said that a Jesuit had confided to him that the secret spoke of a Pope who “would be under the control of Satan. Pope John was reeling, thinking that it could have been him.” Father Martin responded “Yes, it seems that this person would have had a means of reading or would have been given the contents of the secret.”

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

 

   There are also the words of Cardinal Ciappi, the 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 

      The next line would be “There will be a Council.” Cardinal Ratzinger told a friend that Our Lady also warned that there would be an evil Council in the Church that would cause great scandal. I found this in an article by Father Paul Kramer,  The Secret Warned Against Vatican Council II and the New Mass. 

  Kramer says that 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.”

  Sister Lucy never said a positive word about Vatican II. If she had, she would have been quoted.

   So I think that logically the next line would be “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. People today have little appreciation of the loss of Marian Devotion which has a occurred in the last fifty years. Rosary production dropped ninety percent in the decade following Vatican II. The catholic is different today. 

   After reference to the bishops would come the line “They will alter the Mass and the teaching of the Church.”

Pope Pius XII

   Msgr. Eugene Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, made the astonishing prophecy on the future upheaval 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

Odious in My Sight

    Evidently, in the undercurrent of fatima prophecy, Marie Julie Jahenny, the Breton Stigmatist, is a figure of respect. She said that Our Lord spoke to her about a new mass whose words would be “Odious in My Sight.”

   

The Abomination of Desolation 

   There is a case to be made that the new mass is The Abomination of Desolation. John Vennari, in the article referenced above, 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 practical teaching are largely two different bodies of thought.

The next line would be “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 Fatima 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 Haydock 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 apostatized.”

    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.” 

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. 

Next, “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 said “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.”

   

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”.

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.

   Then, Cap closed her folder and relaxed back into her big padded chair.  She told Skinner that she felt that she was delving deeper and deeper into a realm of darkness. And she didn’t know where she was going or what to do with it. Skinner told her to just keep plugging away. “When in doubt, tell the truth.”
