say: “The Vatican won't reveal the Third Secret; we're not going to get
it out of them. Why don't we just go on with our lives the way we are,
do the best we can, and stop worrying about it?”
we are addressing here is: Is the Third Secret important to us?
And, even if the Vatican won't release it, what difference does it make
of all, the Blessed Virgin Herself thought it was important for us to
have the Secret. She thought it important enough to risk the lives of
the three children: Jacinta, Francisco, and Lucy. If She didn't want to
put their lives at risk, She didn't have to tell them the Secret at
all, and the Mayor of Ourem in August 1917 wouldn't have taken them to
prison and threatened them with death for not revealing it.
was so important that Our Lady insisted it be written down. The Blessed
Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Lucy on January 2, 1944 specifically to
tell her to write the Secret down, precisely because She did not want
Sister Lucy to go to her grave without producing a written record of
the Third Secret. Our Lady wants the Third Secret to be known. So the
Secret is important.
the Third Secret Will Save Souls!
Blessed Virgin gave a Message in 1917 and a very important part of the
Message is in that Secret. She wants us to have the Secret so we can
save our souls.
John Paul II, when he went to Fatima, in 1982 said, “Can the Mother,
with all the forces of love that She fosters in the Holy Spirit, and
desires everyone's salvation, can She remain silent when She sees the
very basis of Her children's salvation undermined? And the Pope answers
his own question: “No, She cannot remain silent.”
basis of our salvation, among other things, is the Catholic Faith. The
Catholic Faith is being undermined and the Blessed Virgin knows that. She sees us in danger and She
speaks up. But where does She tell us this? Its in the Secret. She sees
that our eternal salvation is in great jeopardy and if She can give us
the knowledge that we need to know, we would be alerted. We would be on
fact is, She's telling us that one-third of the clergy are working for
the devil. We know that from what John Paul II said on May 13, 2000.
The Secret talks about the apostasy in the Church being led from the
top, which snares one-third of the Catholic clergy to work for the
devil. As a result of those clergy working for the devil, many
souls are going to go to hell that would not otherwise go to Hell.
the faithful knew that the Secret said that, they would at least be on
their guard to not listen to everyone just because they have a collar
on. Now someone might ask, “Well, what about you, Father Gruner?” My
answer is simple: “Just measure if what I'm telling you is the same as
what the Catholic Church has always taught.”
I'm not telling you what the Church has always taught, then don't
listen to me. If the Church has always taught that you must hold on to
your infallible Faith, even against a priest, a bishop, a Cardinal, or
even the Pope, then you MUST do that.
Are there Cardinals, bishops and priests saying things against the
Faith? It would seem so. For example, Cardinal Kasper said in February
2001 “... today we no longer understand ecumenism in the sense of a
return by which the others would be ‘converted’ and return to being
‘Catholics’. This was expressly abandoned at Vatican II.” This teaching
of Cardinal Kasper is directly contrary to the thrice-defined
infallible Catholic dogma, “outside the Church there is no salvation.”
and other statements are scandalous. Cardinal Kasper should be
defrocked, never mind just be demoted as a Cardinal. He should be
reduced to a layman for the things he's saying. But it's not happening.
is why Sister Lucy tells us: “We should not wait for an appeal to the
world to come from Rome on the part of the Holy Father. Nor should we
wait for the call to penance to come from our bishops in our dioceses,
nor from the religious congregations. No! Our Lord has already very
often used these means and the world has not paid attention.”
many Catholics think, well, I'm okay; I'm doing what the Catholic
clergy are telling me to do. In these extraordinary times, sadly, this
is not the criteria to follow. In today's apostasy, do not measure what
are acceptable Catholic statements and behavior by what people are
doing in the chancery office, or in the Vatican. Our criteria, rather,
must be to measure all things by what the Catholic Church has always taught. This is why it is important
for us to know the contents of the Secret.
Are in Danger!
are in the time of the apostasy and Cardinal Ciappi identified that the
Third Secret talks about the apostasy in the Church beginning at the
top. He says, “the" apostasy. There's only one “the" apostasy which is talked about in Sacred
Scripture. And we are living in that time right now. We've had Sacred
Scripture for 2000 years, but Our Lady of Fatima is saying that
prophecy applies to today.
is why you, particularly at this time, have to be on guard. Its not
that the Catholics of previous ages didn't have to be on guard; but
today, now that the apostasy is upon us, we must be on guard. That's
why the Secret must be released. If people had been given access to the
Third Secret, they would have seen the dangers coming.
Lucy herself, in her interview with Father Fuentes on December 26,
1957, before she was silenced said, “the devil is in the mood for
engaging in a decisive battle”; the devil thinks he is going to win.
Some theologians counter this statement, saying that the devil knows
that God has told him he is going to lose, that his head will be
crushed by the Woman's heel, that is, by the Blessed Virgin Mary.
answer: we know the devil is going to lose the battle. We know Our Lady
will crush his head. But it also says in Scripture that “iniquity has
lied to itself”. The devil has lied to himself. He thinks he is going
to win despite the fact that God predicted absolutely that the devil
will lose. So, in this final battle, he pretends to himself and to his
followers that he is going to win. Thus the devil is spoiling for
this final battle now upon us. One of the most tactical, one of the
most important moves for him to make at this time is to destroy as many
as possible of the Catholic clergy.
Lucy points out that the devil knows he has a very short time and that
what gains him more souls than anything else is the fall of the
Catholic clergy. In 1957, she pretty well predicted that the clergy
would be decimated, as there were 450,000 clergy in 1965 at the end of
the Council; and ten years later, the Catholic clergy dropped to
the contrary, the number of Catholics in the world has increased. There
were seven hundred million Catholics in 1965 and now there are over a
billion, yet there are less clergy to take care of them. There are
still only 405,000 Catholic priests. We have never recovered the
fifty-thousand who left the ministry!
worse, you also have many, many so-called Catholic clergy who have
stayed in the ministry and are teaching false doctrines and heresy and
promoting corruption by their own lifestyle.
Holy Bible tells us one of the four sins crying to Heaven for vengeance
is the sin of sodomy, the sin of homosexuality. The fact that the devil
has been able to succeed in getting a number of clergy to practice this
despicable lifestyle shows how strong he has been. And the fact that
they've been able to hide themselves for this long while spreading the
corruption within the clergy, shows how much we are in danger.
is certainly not the answer to get rid of the Catholic clergy as some
would suggest. No! The Catholic clergy is part of the Seven Sacraments
which are necessary for salvation. What you need to do is to
distinguish between good Catholic clergy and bad Catholic clergy. We
need to pray for the priests, bishops, Cardinals and the Pope because,
obviously, the devil is attacking them more.
Paul II, when he went to Fatima, in the year 2000, beatified Jacinta
and Francisco. In his homily, he preached on Chapter 12, verses 1 to 4,
of the Apocalypse. The first verse starts with the words, “A great sign
appeared in Heaven, a Woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under
Her feet, and on Her head a crown of twelve stars.” This is the Blessed
Virgin. Verses 3 and 4 talk about the dragon. The dragon faced the
Woman clothed with the sun, and the dragon was angry with Her and he
used his tail to drag down one-third of the stars of Heaven, that is,
Catholic priests, bishops and Cardinals.
do we know these stars represent the Catholic clergy? Why does Saint
John call them the stars of Heaven? Its very simple. A star was used to
navigate, in the old days, for finding a way to port. The “port” that
we are destined to go to is Heaven. So the stars of Heaven are the
Catholic clergy. They are the stars that show the way to your Heavenly
port. It says in the Old Testament that the lips of the priest are to
guard wisdom. And so, if the priest is doing his job, he will guard
wisdom, he will teach wisdom, and people will find their way to the
Heavenly port by listening to him.
priests are confused or mistaken and are not necessarily working for
the devil, but one-third of them are. And so we have to distinguish
between them. We cannot follow anyone who teaches false doctrine, even
if they are of good intent, even if they are ignorant.
Its not inconceivable that even a Pope can teach false doctrine. And
this is not against the teaching of infallibility. Pope John XXII, in
the years 1330-1334, preached heresy; but he didn't teach it to the
whole Church. He did not invoke his infallibility. In fact, John XXII
was corrected over several years by concerned theologians who were
faithful to perennial Catholic truth. He recanted and disowned his
prior false teaching before he died in 1334. Can a Pope teach false
doctrine? Yes, it can happen. It has happened in the past, and not in
the case of John XXII alone. Its rare, but it does happen.
this time of Apostasy, since 1960, we're living in the period of the
Third Secret, and Cardinal Ciappi tells us that the Third Secret warns
us of the Apostasy. Apostasy is a Greek word which means “rebellion”. A
Scripture scholar pointed out to me that the great apostasy predicted
in Scripture will be a widespread falling away from both belief in the
Catholic Faith as well as the refusal to live as good Catholics. All
rational beings follow first reason: right reason or wrong reason. Most
people follow what their thoughts tell them they see, just like we look
where we go with our eyes. When we make up our mind to do something, we
first of all make a plan; we make a decision — this is where I want to
go, this is what I want to do — and then we follow through with it.
having false doctrine in the place of the true Faith leads you to
Apostasy. But some will say, “Well, I'm a good person, I don't
understand all this doctrine stuff, I believe what I believe. As long
as we're good people, we'll go to Heaven. What do we need all these
little doctrinal points for?”
answer, remember Our Lord said to Pilate, “Its for this reason I came
into the world to witness
to the truth.” The point is
that Our Lord died as a witness
to the truth. So the truth
is important. Doctrine, that is, the truth revealed by God, is
is it the people of our age are falling into Apostasy? Because they
have not loved the truth. So God, Himself, is sending a deceiving
influence among the people, because they do not love the truth. (2 Thess. 2:10) The truth is a primary value. If we
do not love the truth, then everything else we do counts for nothing.
We have to love the truth. We have to seek the truth.
do we know the truth? As a Catholic, we know the truth by what the
Catholic Church has infallibly defined. So if somebody contradicts an
infallible definition, he cannot claim, in all honesty, to be a true
Catholic. Although he may be ignorant because he doesn't even know his
“ABC's” of Catholicism.
Paul himself said: “But
though we, or an angel from Heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that
which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.” (Gal. 1:8) That is, let him be cursed, let him
be cast into hell, do not have anything to do with him.
teaching a doctrine different from the one that was taught by Christ
through the Apostles is bad for you. St. Paul curses you to hell for
that. Now certainly, St. Paul, as well as myself, would hope that you
repent, that you change your doctrine, and come back to the knowledge
and the teaching of the truth. But if you won't, then your destiny is
to be against God, to be against what God stands for, and to be against
Jesus Christ. Christ died on the Cross to give you the truth and you're
trampling on it by saying that the truth doesn't matter. This is why
the Catholic Church infallibly teaches that heretics and those who
refuse to accept the truth will go to Hell forever it they do not
of Faith is Worse Than Annihilation of Nations
Amaral, the former Bishop of Fatima, after consulting Sister Lucy,
speaking about the Third Secret, said it does not concern 55-20
missiles but rather, it concerns the Faith. So what does the
annihilation of nations mean? The physical annihilation is a terrible
thing and I don't wish to minimize it, but it cannot begin to be
compared with the eternal loss of souls.
if a country, for example, gets annihilated by missiles, certainly
people die and they suffer a horrible death; but if they're in a state
of grace, they go to Heaven and have achieved their destiny for all
eternity. On the other hand, if they've apostatized, that is, those who
have been baptized and accepted Christ and then they deny Him, refuse his teaching,
and say it doesn't matter; then their soul will go to Hell for all
so, the apostasy of a nation is much worse than the annihilation of a
nation. And the apostasy of a continent is worse than the apostasy of a
nation. The Third Secret talks about entire nations apostatizing and
losing the Faith. I've worked at this for 28 years to save nations from being annihilated; but
much more so, for the salvation of souls, so they don't apostatize.
said of Judas that it would have been better for him not to have been
born. The betrayal of Christ is a terrible thing and you betray Christ
by teaching false doctrine, all the while knowing you're not teaching
the doctrine of the Church. That's a terrible betrayal. Certainly,
personal sins are terrible and the problem with that is that it
corrupts their hearts, and after a while, they'll more easily fall into
heresy and false doctrine, and they'll be more easily used to promoting
the work of the devil.
may recall that the strike on Pearl Harbor could have been averted had
the Commander-in-Chief not withheld information warning of the planned
attack. That was wrong. The men and women deserved the right to know so
they would at least have had a fighting chance to save their lives.
then, how much worse it is for the Commander-in-Chief of the Catholic
Church, the Holy Father, to not release the information he has in his
possession from Heaven about the plans the devil has for stealing our
souls. In turn, his bishops, having been given charge of a diocese,
have a Divine responsibility, given to them by God Himself, to take
care of those souls in that territory. The Pope and the bishops have to
answer to God for those souls. The Pope owes it to those bishops to give them that
information so they can pass it on to their leading officers, the
parish priests out there. The same thing, every parish priest is
personally responsible for the salvation of the souls in his parish.
So, if the Commander-in-Chief has information that can help save those
souls right down to the parish level, and does not release this
information, he is derelict in his duty for saving those souls.
Should Not Prevent Revealing the Third Secret
I understand there's several reasons why the Vatican doesn't want to
release the Third Secret. First of all, because it's an indictment of
most of the changes in the Church since Vatican II, which are still
imposed de facto. And certainly, to release the Third
Secret would cause a lot of embarrassment for those who still defend
the ill-conceived policies and practices promoted in the name of
Vatican II. I'm sure I would find it embarrassing if I had been in
their position. Objectively speaking though, it is their obligation to
give us this truth, the Third Secret, so that we can properly defend
Alphonsus tells us that a Catholic priest who is a pastor is obligated
to give the Last Sacraments to his parishioner. He must do that even if
the parishioner is stuck in a place that is dangerous. The priest
nevertheless must, if necessary, put his life in danger to give the
Last Sacraments to his parishioners. Its a personal obligation: I'm
sorry for the inconvenience to you Father, I'm sorry that I put you in
this position, but that is Providence. Your job is to take care of my
soul. But if that's true for the pastor of a parish, and it is, then
it's much more true for the pastor of a diocese, which is the bishop,
or the pastor of all the souls of the Catholic Church, which is the
Pope. They also have the obligation to put their life on the line, if
necessary, to save the souls of those entrusted to their care.
Right to Insist
man who accepts the office of the papacy does not accept it at
gunpoint. He can refuse. But once he accepts it, then he has a duty to
care for the flock, to guard the flock against error, and to teach the
truth, even at the cost of his life. And since the Secret is obviously
something important that Our Lady wants us to know for our salvation
and the good of the world, the Pope has a duty to give this information
to us, and we have a right to request it.
I making that up? No. It is defined Catholic dogma. In fact it's twice
defined; the first time was 1274, the Second Council of Lyons, which
says that the faithful have the right to have direct recourse to the
Pope in matters pertaining to ecclesiastical jurisdiction.
1984, Cardinal Ratzinger was asked why the Third Secret had not been
revealed. He gave a published reply in which he said:
it adds nothing to what a Christian must know concerning what derives
from revelation: i.e., a radical call for conversion; the absolute
importance of history, the dangers threatening the faith and the life
of the Christian, and therefore of the world.”
also said it concerns the last times, and tells us it is contained in
Sacred Scriptures, that is, those events predicted at the end of time —
events of terrible chastisements and punishments that have already
started to take place and are going to happen shortly, in our lifetime.
We are in a certain stage of history, and we are in that stage now. That stage that has been predicted in
Sacred Scripture, and we
must do something about it now. We must convert now, because if not
we will be dragged down along with the rest of them in the general
Apostasy surrounding us.
Lord said, “you are the salt of the earth”. This means that the
believing, practicing Catholics — the members of His one true Church —
are the salt of the earth. But Our Lord warns us all, that if the salt
loses its flavor, it is cast out and trampled under foot.
if any of us lose the Faith, or no longer live it, if we succumb to
today's general apostasy, we have lost our taste with God, we are no
longer a preservative against sin, then if we do not repent we will be
cast out, will be trodden under foot.
the more Catholics lose their salt, that is, fall away from the faith,
the less Catholic influence in the world, the more the devil triumphs,
and the entire world falls into sin and ruin. Thus the dangers to the
Faith are indeed dangers to the life of the Christian and therefore, to
the life of the world.
the danger to the world? Because Our Lord would have spared Sodom and
Gomorrah if he could find five just men in that region. But if the salt
lost its flavor, there would be no one left to worthily plead for the
mercy of God against Divine chastisement. This is why Our Lady of
Fatima warns that God will punish the whole world (if we do not repent)
by means of wars and Divine chastisements coming from Heaven.
All Fit Into 25 Lines of Third Secret?
you know, Bishop Venancio, Auxiliary Bishop of Fatima, in 1957 was left alone with the Secret that
was in a sealed envelope. He held the envelope up to the light to try
to discern the contents, and said afterward that the Secret is on one
sheet of paper and consists of about 25 lines.
25 lines of the Third Secret can cover all of what I said very simply
by making references to Sacred Scripture. Why is it that every Pope who
went to Fatima cites Chapter 12, verse 1 of the Apocalypse? Pope Paul
VI's encyclical published on the occasion of his visit to Fatima on May
13, 1967, starts off with the words “Signum Magnum”. That is, his encyclical starts by
quoting the words of the Apocalypse, Chapter 12: “I saw a great sign in
the heavens, a Woman clothed with the sun.” And when John Paul II went
there some 33 years later, he quotes the exact same verse. Why is that? Because it's most
likely cited in the Secret, just as other passages were cited.
Ciappi talks about the great Apostasy of the Church beginning at the
top. Why does he refer to the great Apostasy? Because the Secret
talks about the great Apostasy that's in Sacred
Scripture. Cardinal Ratzinger, in 1984, says “Yes, I have read the
Secret. The things contained in this 'Third Secret' correspond to what
has been announced in Scripture.” How does he know that? Because the
Secret tells him so. That's how you can compress so much into a very
short passage of 25 lines in the Secret, because it makes references
directly to Sacred Scripture.
it's very simple how it goes from the relationship between losing the
Faith, to the danger to the life of the Christian, to the danger to the
world. It is all contained in Our Lord's parable on the salt losing its
Mass Have To Do With World Security?
Padre Pio said that the world could exist easier without the sun than
without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. What this has to do with the
Secret is very simple: Everyone knows that if the sun was not there,
that if the sun stopped giving its heat and its light, we would all
freeze to death within a few hours. We can not exist without the sun.
That's the way God made the world; that's why God made the sun. But if
that is true about the sun and our physical life here, then it is even more true about the Church and the souls
in the world existing without Mass.
do we think that we are good? We think that we are kind and patient, we
put up with people's faults, and we expect people to do the same for
us. But where does that come from? It doesn't come from us; it comes
from God. It comes from the grace that is given to us and even to non-Catholics, even to
non-believers, even to pagans (in the form of actual graces). We get
this goodness, this grace from God, through the Sacrifice of Christ.
And so if you take away the Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the
sacrifice of the Cross re-presented, you take away the most important
means of grace given to the world.
Grace — No
of the lack of grace that prevails in the world without the Holy Mass,
the first natural thing (if you can call it “natural”) is for mankind
to kill each other, because each man then
becomes his own god, each man becomes his own center of the universe;
and anyone that doesn't agree with him will be shot and killed.
is a cynical saying that the “reason that is the strongest, is always
the right reason” — in other words, whoever is strongest will be
considered “right”. And these “strongest” will attack others so the
“strongest” will not be attacked first. Here you have a prescription
for destruction of the whole world, with one man left standing, because
he was the strongest and there is no one else to kill. And this would
come about because of people living without grace.
what can a person do to avoid this? Plenty! You may not have realized
it before but you have a very important role to play in all this. God
has not left you out of the picture. Not only that, God is expecting
you to do something.
Obliged to Defend the Faith
Like the Pope and the Clergy
lay people do not understand that they too have an obligation to the
common good of the Catholic Church. The Church is hierarchical — yes,
there's a Pope, and yes, there are bishops, and yes, there are priests.
But we have to realize that the faithful, by their baptism, are a royal
priesthood. This is not to be confused with the ministerial priesthood,
but by their baptism, lay people have been elevated; they have taken on
a supernatural life of grace. And through that grace, they undertook
the obligation to defend their Faith. Now that baptismal obligation of
defending their Faith, at least to themselves, is primordial. Its more
important than their respect for the priest. Its more important than
their respect for the bishop. Its more important than their respect for
the Pope, in that if a priest, bishop or Pope does anything
contrary to the Faith, the Catholic is bound to resist them.
Catholic must understand his primary obligations, and by his
Confirmation he or she also takes on the obligation to defend the Faith: not only for themselves,
but to the extent they can, for those around them. That obligation is
sacred. The obligation to defend the Faith takes precedence over a
priest's obedience to a bishop who would ask him to go against the
Faith in any way. The obligation to the Faith takes precedence over a
religious’ obligation to his superior who would ask him to go against
the Faith in any way. The obligation to defend the Faith that a
Catholic receives at his Baptism and Confirmation is higher than any
obedience he owes to any ecclesiastical superior.
St. Thomas will say that if you are not intellectually prepared to
defend the Faith in public, then leave that to more capable people to
do, lest your weak defense makes it look like the truth is defeated.
But those who have the ability and those who have the station in life,
must defend the faith and cannot
and must not hide behind
is not saying, however, that you, yourself don't have an obligation to
defend the Faith. Even if you are not a learned speaker there are many,
many ways you can stand up for the truth, according to your own talents
which God has given you. All of us are called to know and live the
Fatima Message in our daily lives. All of us are called upon, to the
extent that we can, to make the full Fatima Message known to those around
us. Doing this will greatly help overcome the apostasy that envelops
our world. In this defense of Fatima and the defense of the Catholic
Faith, we must never give up.
sends prophets to help us because we need a correction to our vision,
especially when we're being misled. St. Thomas tells us that God sends
prophets to every generation. We need the prophecy of Fatima. We must not
despise it. If we despise it, it's at the peril of our own eternal
Right and the Obligation
to Petition the Pope
as a Catholic lay person, have a priceless heritage given to you by
God, Himself; the gift of prophecy given at Fatima. You have a right to know what that prophecy is, and
the Pope has an obligation to give it to you.
have the right to petition the Pope. If you don't petition him, you
have not done your duty to ask for it, when you know you can. You need
that information you're petitioning for, the Third Secret, in order to
protect your soul from the insidious apostasy that surrounds us right
the meantime, while waiting for the full disclosure of the Third Secret
we must do what St. Vincent of Lerins said:
if some new contagion should seek to poison, not only a little part of
the Church, but the whole Church at once, then his [the Catholic's]
greatest care should once again be to adhere to antiquity, which
obviously cannot be seduced by any deceitful novelty.”
Church is Catholic, not just because it's universal over the whole
world, it's Catholic because it's universal in time. Its the same Faith, the same
practices, from the time of Christ to the end of time. And when
everyone around us goes wrong, at least if we look to what our
forefathers have done, we know that we're safe on solid ground.
Martin, who read the Third Secret, said on the radio to millions of
people on the Art Bell Show that if the Secret was released, the
churches would be full, the cathedrals would be full, the line-ups for
confession would be very long, and people would be beating their
breasts in the churches because of what the Secret would be telling
the Third Secret is not just about the Popes and the bishops, it's
about all of us. Its about the need for reform, the danger all of us
are in, of going to hell, for the sins we've all committed in this
time. As Sister Lucy said, “My mission is not to tell the world of the
material chastisements that are certain to take place if we do not
amend. No, my mission is to tell everyone that we are all in danger of
going to hell if we do not amend.” If we don't reform soon, the world
will suffer horrible pains such as has never been seen before in the
whole history of mankind. And worse, still millions of souls will go to
Hell for all eternity.
There is No Argument
Thomas tells us, “Against a fact, there is no argument.” We have
certainly enough facts documented in many places, including The Devil's Final Battle, which show 11 different facts
proving there must be two documents regarding the Third Secret. What
the Vatican released on June 26, 2000, is not the whole Third Secret.
Third Secret is what comes after the words “In Portugal the dogma of
the Faith will always be preserved, etc.” That “etc.” was not spoken by
Our Lady, but was inserted by Sister Lucy to mark the place of Our
Lady's words in the Third Secret. We know that the word “etc.” is not
from Our Lady, not only from Sister Lucy's original handwritten text,
but also because no one making an important declaration ends it with
the word, “etc.”, especially the Mother of God, Whose eloquence and
command of language surpasses the greatest orator or poet. It is
obvious that we have a sentence that is not complete, that there
is something more to follow. What the Vatican gave us is not
complete. There are no words of Our Lady.
Schweigl tells us that there are, in fact, two parts to the Third
Secret. (First of all, there is one Secret divided into three parts.
The third part of the Secret is further divided into two parts.) The
first part of the Secret concerns the Faith. The second part of the
Third Secret concerns the Pope. The description of the vision given on
June 26, 2000 describes what is going to happen to the Pope because he
does not obey Our Lady of Fatima, because he does not do the
Consecration of Russia. This is the second part of the Third Secret.
But the first part is what Cardinal Ratzinger told us — it concerns the
dangers to the Faith — the subsequent loss of Faith leading to apostasy
that comes from the top of the Vatican, leading to the danger to the
lives of the Christians (that is, Catholics) including the Pope, and
finally the danger to the world.
will not just happen to the Pope, by the way. As terrible as it is for
the Pope, it's terrible for the priests and the bishops as well as the
lay people. That part is in the vision.
of this is happening because of the Apostasy, because of the loss of
Faith. They've fallen apostate, and as a result of that they are
punished through the anti-god forces working for the devil. Whether
it's communism, masonry, the New World Order, whether it's new-agers,
whatever they are called, it really doesn't matter here. The point is
that they are being punished. Just as God used the Babylonians to
punish the Jews for being unfaithful, God uses even pagans, even
peoples who hate God in order to punish the people of God for not being

raising their voice; except the Blessed Virgin Mary. She came to Fatima
to warn us. She sees us in danger of losing our souls. She sees that
the very basis of our salvation is being undermined. Yes, She raises

the bishop of Garabandal said he did not believe the apparitions were
supernatural, he nevertheless said there was nothing in the message of
Garabandal that was contrary to the Faith and morals, and that it
