Fatima and the Third Secret – what has been revealed


Over the years, we have posted various articles about this subject.

There has been much evidence to prove that the message revealed in 2000 was not complete. In the Book of Truth, Our Lady tells us more information. An example from one of her messages is below:

” … I gave the world the prophecies in 1917, but the last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it for those within the Catholic Church.

The last secret of Fatima still remains unknown to God’s children, although part of it was revealed to you on  26 January, 2012.  Very few within the Church are privy to this. Now, the next part of the final secret of Fatima must be revealed, so that I can warn humanity of the consequences of ignoring my intervention to help save souls.

The Church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God. They – and there are twenty of them who control from within – have created the greatest deceit. They have elected a man, not of God, while the Holy Father, accorded the Crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.

The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the Crown of Peter in the end times. One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner. The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the Catholic Church, but of all Churches which honour my Father and who accept the Teachings of my Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.

There can only be one head of the Church on earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain pope until his death...

Children, you must only heed one warning, now. Do not deviate from the Teachings of my Son. Question every new doctrine, which may be presented to you and which professes to come from my Son’s Church on earth. The truth is simple.  It never changes. My Son’s legacy is very clear. Do not allow anyone to cloud your judgement.

Soon the Fatima prophecies will make sense. All is now taking place before a disbelieving world, but sadly, very few will understand until it is too late. Pray, pray, pray my most Holy Rosary, as often as possible, every single day, in order to dilute the effect of the evil, which surrounds you.

Your beloved Mother
Mother of Salvation

Is Benedict’s act of renunciation  ““victorious, triumphant, and heroic”?


The following article, written by Fr. Belland, is reblogged from Bp. Gracida’s website”.  See –  https://abyssum.org/



 Your Excellency,

First, there is a plethora of people who speak out of both sides of their mouths:  on one side they seem to admit that Francis is Pope by the fact that he must be removed by some magic process that determines he is a heretic; out of the other side comes at least the possibility that Benedict is the true Pope.  Well, it’s time to make up one’s mind and not sitting on a fence with one foot in one guy’s yard and the other one in another guy’s yard, claiming, as it were, both to be his property.  But in the case of Benedict and Francis it all depends on that which seems more credible to the guy sitting the fence, he takes the side of Benedict when those who say he is Pope appear accurate and the other side when those who argue that Bergoglio must be gotten rid of gives a better impression.  But many times he takes both sides simultaneously!

 Furthermore, if one is determined to hold that Francis is not Pope because Benedict is Pope, then there’s no sense in discussing any effort to get rid of him, since it is impossible to declare that a Pope has lost the Petrine Office, through heresy or whatever, when he isn’t even Pope, right from the beginning. Nor is there any reason to argue for an examination of the Conclave fiasco that “elected” him.  So why not take one side or the other?

Secondly, as I have argued in various places, one CANNOT look to the past for a solution to the totally unprecedented situation we have today, a situation which has not only been prophesied by Our Lady (Fatima and Akita) but also the solution has been given and the consequences have been provided—the consequences following upon the non-fulfillment of the given solutions!!!!!!!!!!!!  The only solution for today is one that Almighty God has chosen, as revealed in the Fatima apparition, and our mind MUST conform to the reality that God provides, not something from the past, by doing which in fact indicates that people consider their solutions are better than God’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thirdly, here’s another clue that might, just might, help people to decide about who is truly Pope and what do to about it. This comes from the Treatise I wrote on the Renunciation of Benedict:

At this point it would be well to provide a little known hint about the contents of the Third Secret of Fatima. This comes from one Father Schweigl, “an Austrian Jesuit (1894-1964), professor at the Gregorian University and the Russicum [Seminary].”17  A very spiritual priest and concerned about the Russian situation at the time, he was much occupied by the Fatima Message and especially anxious for the Consecration of Russia.

On 7 July 1952 Pope Pius XII, with due solemnity lacking and without the accompaniment of all the Bishops of the world, consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This Consecration was quite a disappointment for Fr. Schweigl; there seemed to be some confusion as to why the Holy Father did not comply with the requests of Our Lady.

However, Fr. Schweigl, at the time of that Consecration, was laying plans to pay a visit to Sr. Lucia. By some arrangement, whether of his own initiative or with the prompting of Pius XII is not clear, “on March 27 1952, he had received permission from Pius XII to speak with Sister Lucy of Fatima «about 31 questions concerning the conversion of Russia.»”18 The interrogation actually took place on 2 September 1952.

Regarding those “31 questions concerning the conversion of Russia,” Fr. Schweigl admits in a text he had distributed to the [Vatican II] Council Fathers that subsequent to his visit with Sr. Lucia he was ordered by the Archbishop of Coimbra “that the replies given by Sister Lucy not be published without authorization of the Holy Office; up to the present this authorization has not been given.”19  Nevertheless, although he was unable to divulge the contents of the answers to his questions, having returned to the Russicum after his visit with Sr. Lucia, “Father Schweigl confided this to one of his colleagues who questioned him on the Secret: “«I cannot reveal anything of what I learned at Fatima concerning the third Secret, but I can say that it has two parts: one concerns the Pope. The other, logically – although I must say nothing – would have to be the continuation of the words: In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved. »”20

Getting to the point of the little known hint about the Third Secret, Frére Michel states that “Father Schweigl, [who] was perfectly well informed about everything having to do with the consecration of Russia, stresses that the great Secret ‘seems to suppose a victorious,triumphant, but difficult and heroic decision’ of the Holy Father.’ He continues, ‘In fact on July7, 1952, the Holy Father Consecrated the peoples of Russia in a special way to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, although many circles were against the opportuneness of such a consecration’ (Fatima e la conversione della Russia, p. 15. Pontificio Collegio Russico, 1956.)”21

This quote concerning an implied action of a Pope in the Third Secret is most interesting. Now although Fr. Schweigl spoke of the suggested action as possibly having to do with the Consecration of Russia by Pope Pius XII on 7 July 1952, it certainly must be questioned whether that Consecration was truly a “victorious, triumphant . . . and heroic” decision of Pope Pius XII.  Certainly, there have been no obvious “victorious” and “triumphant” effects, from that Consecration, though it perhaps could be said to have been, in a sense, “heroic” due to political circumstances of the time. And I doubt that anyone would be able to identify any Papal deed as “victorious, triumphant, and heroic” from Pius XII until Benedict’s act of renunciation. 

Furthermore, it would be absolutely ridiculous to suggest that the Consecration of Russia as requested by Our Lady, which hasn’t been done to this day, is going to be made by this current Pontificate–Francis. Indeed, the chances, barring some type of Divine intervention, of electing a traditional or even conservative Pope at a Conclave following the death of Francis is just too much to expect from God. Not that He is unable, being Almighty, to provide in such a way. But, given that His Providence could be said to have already begun arranging matters, it cannot be expected that He would deviate from what He has already begun—of course, I refer to another individual in the Vatican calling himself Pope.

Finally, what if Benedict’s renunciation affected only a resignation from the “exercise” of the Petrine Office, as the wording of his resignation infer, amidst perhaps even threats to resign from the Office, Benedict’s “fear of fleeing the wolves,” and an “apostasy that begins AT THE TOP? By resigning from the “exercise” of the Petrine Office while keeping that Office out of the hands of one not worthy to be Pope, could it truly be denied that his “decision” was in fact“ victorious, triumphant, but difficult and heroic?” His action would have to be regarded as a fearless challenge to the St. Gallen Mafia and a way of providing for a proper Consecration of Russia either by himself or by his successor, the next true Pope. I encourage the reader to keep this idea in mind as we now progress to the analysis of Benedict’s Renunciation.

I suggest that people “get down to brass tacks,” for as someone said “Those who get down to brass tacks usually rise very swiftly.”  Either one honors the messages of Our Lord and Our Lady, or they try to play God, thinking they have all the solutions.  Let’s call on the authorities of Holy Mother Church to look into the renunciation of Benedict to verify that Benedict is indeed Pope.  Only when that has been determined can proper action take place.  In the meantime one had better be ready for ‘fire from the sky.”

Sincerely in the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts,

Father Belland

Stumbling Blocks: The Two Popes


The other stumbling block that has prevented people from recognizing the truth about what is actually happening in the Church, is the fact that there are two popes. People think that one has resigned, but once a pope, always a pope, and he deliberately only gave Bp.. Bergoglio the part of the papacy which ‘governs’. Don’t people think this is a bit weird?

There are many prophets who have told us that this would happen. There are Catholic prophecies from Saints, yet people don’t know of them. In this age of technology, you would think it would be easy. But even most priests and bishops dare not acknowledge these prophecies. Maybe they haven’t read them?

It might be possible to dismiss any individual one, and try to explain it away, but taken as a whole – they cannot be ignored. Looking at the Church today – they all make sense.

1. St Francis of Assisi

Before his death in 1226, St. Francis of Assisi called together the friars of his Order and detailed this prophecy of what was to come in the latter days concerning a future pope. The following is taken from Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi, R. Washbourne Publishing House, 1882, pp. 248-250, with imprimatur by His Excellency William Bernard, Bishop of Birmingham. The source of this prophecy is the Writings of St. Francis (1623) by Fr. Luke Wadding, preeminent historian and scholar on St. Francis of Assisi.

“At the time of this tribulation, a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error…. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer.” 

2. Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich 1820

May 13, 1820

 “I saw also the relationship between the two popes. . .

I saw how baleful (harmful) would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness…”

Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the secret sect, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed Virgin ascend on the Church and spread her mantle [over it].”

July, 1820

“I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand…Then I saw darkness spreading around and people no longer seeking the true Church.”  

August 10, 1820

I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before he dies. I see that the false Church of darkness is making progress and I see the dreadful influence it has on the people. The Holy Father and the Church are verily in so great a distress that one must implore God night and day…”

“I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope…The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation (rooting out) of the dark church.”


October 1, 1820

“The Church is in great danger. We must pray so that the Pope may not leave Rome; countless evils would result if he did. They are now demanding something from him. The Protestant doctrine and that of the schismatic Greeks are to spread everywhere. I now see that in this place (Rome) the (Catholic) Church is being so cleverly undermined, that there hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all work for destruction, even the clergy. A great devastation is now near at hand.”

“In those days Faith will fall very low and it will be preserved in some places only.”

“The Little Black Man in Rome, whom I see so often, has many working for him without their clearly knowing for what end. He has his agents in the New Black Church also. If the Pope leaves Rome, the enemies of the Church will get the upper hand. I see the Little Black Man in his own country committing many thefts and falsifying things generally. Religion is there so skilfully undermined and stifled that there are scarcely 100 faithful priests. I cannot say how it is, but I see fog and darkness increasing … All must be rebuilt soon; for everyone, even ecclesiastics, are laboring to destroy (and) ruin is at hand.

N.b. The Jesuits wear black. The head of the Jesuits is referred to as the ”black pope”. Pope Francis is a Jesuit.

3. Our Lady of La Salette declared to Melanie Calvat (1831-1904):

      • Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.”
      • ‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation..” [Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition, adds the following note after this paragraph. ‘I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope;
      • for a time: the Holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw that yet the Holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.’] (.” Abbot Combe: “The Secret of Melanie and the Actual Crisis”, Rome, 1906, p.137.)

 “The Church will be in eclipse”: Eclipse means hidden; covered up; seeming to disappear. The Holy Scriptures say: “Where there is Peter, there is the Church.” Melanie understood that Peter would be hidden- along with the Church, and that his “eclipse” would be a prelude to the disappearance of the Mass.  This reference to “Peter being hidden” represents Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who is mostly hidden from our eyes and is prevented from exercising his Petrine ministry.

    • “The Holy Father will suffer a great deal because for a while the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the Church will witness a frightful crisis

We are seeing right now, in these last few months the persecution of the church – Fr Kalchik, Cardinal Pell, Fr. Nicholas Rynne, and no doubt many others. A ‘time of darkness’ – Amoris Laetitia, the homosexual problem of bishops and priests in the Church , as well as crimes against children…

Obviously, it is not Pope Francis who is suffering! And the ‘frightful crisis of the Church’ is almost (if not already) upon us.

4. Prophecy of POPE PIUS X 1909

The following prophecy is about the pope who will have to flee Rome (later repeated by Sr Lucy of Fatima).

Pope Pius X’s second vision refers to a pope of the same name who will have to flee Rome.

Joseph Ratzinger is the only Pope (Emeritus means he still holds the reins of  Pope ) who has the same Christian name as Pope Pius X.

Pope Pius X’s name was ‘Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto – Guiseppe translated is “Joseph”. Pope Benedict XI’s name is  ‘Joseph Ratzinger’.

” In 1909, during an audience for the general chapter of the Franciscan Order, Pope Pius X suddenly fell into a trance. The audience waited in reverent silence. When he awoke, the Pope cried out:

“What I see is terrifying! Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the Pope will quit Rome, and in leaving the Vatican he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests.  [This was precisely the vision sister Lucia received of the martyr pope dressed in white!]

“Do not tell anyone this while I am alive.”

Just prior to his death (August 20, 1914), Pope Pius X had another vision:

“I have seen one of my successors, of the same name, who was fleeing over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite, he will die a cruel death.

“Respect for God has disappeared from human hearts. They wish to efface even God’s memory. This perversity is nothing less than the beginning of the last days of the world.” 

5. Fatima 1917

      • In the Third Secret [of Fatima] it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top. –Mario L. Ciappi, Cardinal and household theologian to John Paul II; quoted in The Devil’s Final Battle, p. 33
      • Satan rules even in the highest positions and determines the direction of things. He will succeed in worming his way even into the highest summits of the Church…”
      • “But this will be a time of great trials for the Church. Cardinals will oppose cardinals. Bishops will oppose bishops. Satan will walk in their ranks. In Rome, there will be great changes. What is rotten will fall and what will fall will never rise again. Darkness will envelope the Church and the world will be thrown into a panic.”

The quote given above is taken from a German periodical published in 1963, Neues Europa, and received unofficial approbation in the 1960’s by several Church officials who had read the original 3rd Secret text hand-written by Sister Lucia. Among these Church officials was the respected Cardinal Ottovani. (Taken from:  http://marienfried.com/catholic%20teachings/prophecy%20of%20apostasy.html

  • At an interview of (Jesuit) Fr Malachi Martin in 1998, who was present at the reading of the Third Secret in 1960 by Pope John XXIII, Art Bell asked him if the statement that “The last pope will be under the control of Satan” is true and really part of the Third Secret,– he replies “Yes. That is correct”. See the whole interview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn–7GTffn8. See especially: 1h:46m:30s to 1h:47m:20s


      • “The world will be afflicted with wars, famine, the martyrdom of the good, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father, the annihilation of nations, and apostasy from the one true Faith”.

 6. St. Faustina

It is not generally known that St. Faustina, known for her role in establishing the devotion to Divine Mercy, penned an unusual entry into her diary on December 17, 1936. Entry 823 is as follows.

“I have offered this day for priests. I have suffered more today than ever before, both interiorly and exteriorly. I did not know it was possible to suffer so much in one day. I tried to make a Holy Hour, in the course of which my spirit had a taste of the bitterness of the Garden of Gethsemane. I am fighting alone, supported by His arm, against all the difficulties that face me like unassailable walls. But I trust in the power of His name and I fear nothing.”

Note that Faustina that day was making reparation for priests, an offering that brought upon her the worst suffering she had ever endured. But too, on that bitter day of December 17, 1936, was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who would later reign as Pope Francis, the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.

Could it be that Faustina that day was atoning for the many priests, bishops, and cardinals of the future who would be misled by Francis? But too, could it be that her mysterious torment signaled the arrival of a future anti-pope who would destroy the Faith in the name of “mercy?”


7. Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1950)

  • The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.”
  • “We are living in the days of the Apocalypse–the last days of our era…. The two great forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of Antichrist are beginning to draw up the battle lines for the catastrophic contest.” (Flynn T & L. The Thunder of Justice. Maxkol Communications, Sterling, VA, 1993, p. 20)

He also said:

  • “The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church [the Catholic Church] will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist.

8. The Revelation from Garabandal that there would be 3 more popes

This claim matches that of the original  St. Malachi prophecy – that the last Pope would be “the glory of the olive” who would be the final pope of this age. This, of course, is Benedict.

Conchita explained that her mention of only three was because she was told one of the original four [John Paul I] would only last for a very short time. She doesn’t count Francis as a pope at all; the prophecies of Our Lady are never inaccurate.

 9.  Fr Gobbi

Message #406, June 13 1989

 “This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me, at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.”

      • “The first sign is the spread of errors, which lead to the loss of faith and to apostasy. These errors are being propagated by false teachers, by renowned theologians who are no longer teaching the truths of the gospel, but pernicious heresies based on errors and on human reasoning. It is because of the teaching of these errors that the true faith is being lost and that the great apostasy is spreading everywhere.”
      • “First of all, a great apostasy is spreading in every part of the Church, through the lack of faith which is flooding even among its very pastors. Satan has succeeded in spreading everywhere the great apostasy, by means of his subtle work of seduction, which has brought many to be alienated from the truth of the Gospel to follow the fables of the new theological theories and to take delight in evil and in sin, sought after as an actual good.”
      • “This great apostasy is spreading more and more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church. Errors are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever, are being denied with impunity.

Some examples of the errors and apostasy that we see today in this pontificate , (mentioned by Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi), include:

Statements of the man sitting on the throne of Peter which include:

            • blasphemy,
            • heretical and scandalizing statements,
            • an inability or rather, refusal to clarify any dogmatic Truth as well as
            • his approval of sinful situations, despite what the Church and Sacred Scripture teaches.

(From “ https://thewildvoice.org/pope-francis-bad-fruits/)

Of the Holy Spirit – ‘Pope Francis’ scandalously claims:

 ‘The Paraclete (the Holy Spirit) creates all the differences among the Churches, almost as if he were an Apostle of Babel.‘   (MARCH 15, 2013, VATICAN )

Of the Most Holy Trinity – ‘Pope Francis’ jokes:

Inside the Holy Trinity they’re all arguing behind closed doors, but on the outside they give the picture of unity.‘   (MARCH 25, 2017 – CRUX)

Of God the Father– ‘Pope Francis’ says:

God cannot be God without man… Let us also think of the Father, of our Father who cannot be without us, and who is watching us at this moment.‘     (JUNE 7, 2017 – ROME REPORTS/VIDEO)

Of the Blessed Virgin Mary – ‘Pope Francis’ says:

She was silent, but in her heart, how many things she told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!‘ (DECEMBER 20, 2013 – VATICAN RADIO)  

On Jesus Pope Francis said:

‘Pope Francis’ said that Jesus “had to beg forgiveness of his parents and that the Virgin Mary reproached Christ (when lost in the temple)

‘Pope Francis’ taught that the miracle of Jesus multiplying the bread and fish was really just a miracle of “sharing.

Other statements from this pope:

Lost souls do not go to Hell, saying “there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is finished.

‘Pope Francis’ said that Mother Earth is the one who ‘gave us life and safeguards us‘.

‘Pope Francis’ approved of contraception in certain circumstances.

Francis issued a stamp featuring Luther and put out a document saying Catholics now recognize Martin Luther as a “witness to the Gospel”. The stamp features Luther and Philip Melanchthon,  – one of the founders of Lutheranism. In the image, Luther holds a Bible, and Melanchthon holds a copy of the Augsburg Confession, the primary confession of faith for the Lutheran church.

Pope  criticized large Catholic families, cautioning them against “breeding like rabbits” (Jan 19, 2015)

On Pentecost Sunday – June 8, 2014, he hosted Jewish prayers and Koran readings at the Vatican.

See our previous post at: https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/category/prophecies-fulfilled/

 Examples of these errors being formally taught:Amoris Laetitia: changes the practice of denying Holy Communion to those who are in ‘irregular unions‘ (divorced and remarried, etc.).

Footnote 351 (Amoris laetitia‘s) granted permission for unrepentant adulterers to commit sacrilege at Mass.

Footnote 329 rips the Second Vatican Council’s Gaudium et spes 51 (concerning temporary abstinence from marital relations) completely out of context in order to argue that “doing it for the children” might mitigate the mortal sin of adultery.

Other Errors:

      1. #AmorisLaetitia ¶3:  “Each country/region can seek solutions better suited to its culture/traditions/local needs”  [aka protestant style federation of (40000+) churches, no central church magisteriurm, relativism]
      2. #AmorisLaetitia ¶297: No one can be condemned for ever [ie, no one goes to hell]
      3. #AmorisLaetitia ¶301:It can no longer simply be said that all those in any irregular situations are living in a state of mortal sin. ” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators are not in a state of mortal sin, sin does not exist, and the 6th commandment is washed away]
      4. #AmorisLaetitia footnote #351: “In certain cases this can include the help of the sacraments” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators may receive holy communion
      • “The episcopates are maintaining a strange silence and are no longer reactingWhen my Pope speaks with courage and reaffirms with force the truths of the Catholic faith, he is no longer listened to and is even publicly criticized and derided. There is a subtle and diabolical tactic, woven in secrecy by Masonry, which is used today against the Holy Father in order to bring ridicule upon his person and his work and to neutralize his Magisterium.”

(“my Pope” refers to Pope St John Paul II, who was Pope at the time of Fr. Gobbi)

10. Pope Benedict XVI at His Inaugural Address (2013)

“Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves”.   

11. Book of Truth

“My beloved Pope Benedict XVI is the last true pope on this Earth“. – (April 12th, 2012)

“They plan to replace the Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, with a dictator of lies. He will create a new church in league with the antichrist and his group, in order to deceive the world.”(January 18th, 2012)

“One half will believe, out of duty, the need to follow the false prophet, the pope who will follow Pope Benedict XVI.” –(April 10th, 2012)

“They, My daughter, are being sent to prepare God’s children to accept the next pope, who comes after My beloved Vicar, Pope Benedict. This pope may be elected by members within the Catholic Church, but he will be the false prophet. His electors are wolves in sheep’s clothing and are members of the secret Masonic and evil group- led by Satan. This is how Satan will try to destroy My Church. Sadly, he will, this false prophet, attract a large following. Those who oppose him will be persecuted.” -( April 12th, 2012)

“Be assured that it will be the Catholic Church, founded by Me and placed under the command of My beloved apostle, Peter, which will suffer the greatest in the end times.” – (April 12th, 2012)

The Book of Truth reveals aspects which were not revealed in 2000. These were, however, revealed by other saints – such as St Francis of Assisi and Bl. Catherine Emmerich.

Read the message of 26 Jan 2012:  The final secret of Fatima reveals the Truth of Satan’s evil sect entering the Vatican.” 

and the message of  22 Jul 2013 Mother of Salvation: The last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it.”

You can also read both of these as quoted in our last post: “Stumbling Blocks: The Truth about the Third Secret of Fatima.”

In conclusion:

We see that the Third Secret says in part:

1) that the evil sect (Illuminati, Freemasons – Satanists) have entered the Vatican
2) that there will be 2 popes- “two men wearing the crown of Peter”.

Old news for the Remnant Army of Crusaders! I wonder what else does it say?

P.S. What about “My daughter Lucia was silenced by the powers, which control part of the Vatican,..” – This, lending a lot of credence to The “imposter Lucy” allegations.










Stumbling Blocks: The Truth about The Third Secret of Fatima


There has been a lot of speculation about what may or may not be in the Third Secret of Fatima. Most people do agree though that the 3rd secret in its entirety has not been revealed to the world. The contents shown to us which are supposedly the third secret do not match the suggestions in Sr. Lucia’s diary, nor the length and handwriting of the real 1 page letter which eye witnesses claim to have seen, nor is it plausible that the contents (as supposedly revealed in June 26th, 2000) could cause so much concern and horror as to warrant keeping them secret longer than instructed by heaven. To do so, suggests that a lot of fear surrounded the actual Third Secret or that the pope who refused to release it was complicit in its exposure of Freemasonry (Pope John XXIII).

If you need to catch up on the reasons supporting the fact that it has not been fully revealed, please read here: https://sspx.ca/en/news-events/news/fatima-secret-dangers-threatening-faith-15980 for a quick summary.

Now, although I have not seen the Third Secret’s words, as given to Sr. Lucia, I can tell you more of what’s in it than what others have speculated. I can do this because more information is revealed in The Book of Truth. And, as Pope Benedict said in his address about that secret, it contains what has already been contained in many Marian apparitions before about the future of the Church. That is interesting if we actually read what those other approved apparitions describe to us.

The Third Secret is intertwined with the fact that there are two popes. These are the two stumbling blocks that keep the majority of people unable to comprehend the seriousness of the state of the church and its leader at this time.

What do we discover about the Third Secret in the Book of Truth?

In this message dated July 22nd, 2013, we read:

“My child, the deceit, which the world will face, will be so difficult to discern, that only those who surrender to God and place all their trust in my Son, will be able to endure the trials, which lie ahead.

I gave the world the prophecies in 1917, but the last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it for those within the Catholic Church.

The last secret of Fatima still remains unknown to God’s children, although part of it was revealed to you on 26 January, 2012.  Very few within the Church are privy to this. Now, the next part of the final secret of Fatima must be revealed, so that I can warn humanity of the consequences of ignoring my intervention to help save souls.

The Church has been infested, from the inside, by enemies of God. They – and there are twenty of them who control from within – have created the greatest deceit. They have elected a man, not of God, while the Holy Father, accorded the Crown of Peter, has been carefully removed.

Pope Benedict XVI

The details, which I revealed, are that there would be two men wearing the Crown of Peter in the end times.

One will suffer because of lies which have been created to discredit him and which will render him a virtual prisoner.

The other one elected will bring about the destruction, not only of the Catholic Church, but of all churches which honour my Father and who accept the Teachings of my Son, Jesus Christ, Saviour of the world.

There can only be one head of the Church on Earth, authorised by my Son, who must remain pope until his death. Anyone else, who claims to sit in the Seat of Peter, is an imposter. This deceit has one purpose, to turn souls over to Lucifer and there is little time for such souls, who will be none the wiser, to be saved.

Children, you must only heed one warning, now. Do not deviate from the Teachings of my Son. Question every new doctrine, which may be presented to you and which professes to come from my Son’s Church on Earth. The Truth is simple. It never changes. My Son’s Legacy is very clear. Do not allow anyone to cloud your judgement. Soon the Fatima prophecies will make sense. All is now taking place before a disbelieving world, but sadly, very few will understand until it is too late.

Pray, pray, pray my Most Holy Rosary, as often as possible, every single day, in order to dilute the effect of the evil, which surrounds you.

Your beloved Mother,

Mother of Salvation.

The second message referred to (above) is this one:

The final secret of Fatima reveals the Truth of Satan’s evil sect entering the Vatican

26th Jan. 2012

Message 0318

This is the extract from Jesus, regarding Fatima:

“My dearly beloved daughter, it is time for the full Truth of the Mysteries of the Divine Realm to be revealed to the world. The Truth has been hidden for some time.

Acknowledgement of My Divine Intervention in the world through the miracles, apparitions and Divine Communications to chosen souls, has been pushed to one side by My Church, for many years.

Why My Church felt the need to dampen the Truth, when it was needed to strengthen the faith of My children everywhere, is known only to them.

Every true visionary of Mine and My Blessed Mother was ignored in the beginning and treated with contempt by My Church.

My daughter, even the final secret of Fatima was not given to the world, because it revealed the truth of Satan’s evil sect entering the Vatican.

The last part of secret has not been revealed, in order to protect the wicked sect who entered the Vatican in great numbers since My Mother’s appearance at the Holy Shrine of Fatima.

My daughter Lucia was silenced by the powers, which control part of the Vatican, over which My poor beloved popes have little control. Watch how they have, not only twisted the Truth of My Teachings, but, introduced new methods of Catholic worship, which insult Me, and My Eternal Father. The Catholic Church is the One True Church and as such is a primary target of Satan and his wicked sect. The Truth comes from Me.

The Truth makes mankind uncomfortable, because it can involve personal sacrifice. The Truth causes outrage in some instances and, in many cases, is treated as heresy. Yet only the Truth can set you free from lies, the lies, which come from Satan, and which create a heavy burden on your soul.

The time has come for the Truth to be unveiled in a world which is full of lies.

So many lies, My daughter, have been presented to My children by false religions, false gods, false church leaders, false political leaders and organisations, as well as a false media.

So much of the Truth is hidden. Yet, if the Truth of what is happening in the world were revealed today, very few people would accept it…”

 The  Third  Secret and the Papacy Today

The Third Secret of Fatima states: “The last pope will be under the control of satan.”

  • This is confirmed by Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi (message #406, June 13 1989)fr-gobbi

This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.”

and also

  • Confirmed by (Jesuit) Fr Malachi Martin in 1998, who was present at the martinreading of the Third Secret in 1960 by Pope John XXIII. In this interview, Father Malachi Martin, when asked if the statement that “The last pope will be under the control of satan” is true and really part of the Third Secret,he replies “Yes. That is correct”.

When asked why he can’t reveal the truth IF THAT IS WHAT God asked, he replied that he has no authority to reveal the Secret. There is a structure in the Church, and he can’t take this authority away from them (Pope, bishops, cardinals). It is not his place, to do this.  See the following video- The last interview of Jesuit Fr. Malachi Martin by Art Bell in 1998.

Prophecies: Fatima and the Masonic Sect in the Vatican – Introduction


“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear”. (Mark 4:23)francis16


Much of this is known by many, but there are so many good Catholic souls, who have no idea. Some may think pope Francis is misunderstood, that he is friendly, and a pope for “our times” who understands our society. They are being fooled and the secular press is silent- they praise and applaud him and do not speak against him.

The worst part is that, except for a few courageous cardinals and bishops, most of them are silent. They do not alert the faithful. Many of them are fearful. The modernists and the relativists and the humanists are coming out of the woodwork.

It is going to be the biggest deceit in the history of humanity.

Yet we won’t listen when we are warned – even to our Blessed Mother.

Some of us are lucky enough to have pastors who point out what Christ’s teaching is – to which we must stay faithful (Cardinal Burke) – in order to not be deceived. So many Catholics don’t know what Christ’s teachings are, or why they can’t be changed.

This article (in Parts 1, 2 and3) makes a brief mention of Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s prophecy, La Salette and also the vision of Pope Leo XIII, which give even more weight to the Fatima prophecy. This article attempts to show how the prophecies from the Book of Truth expand the Fatima message and put it into the context of our time.

Part 1 links the Third Secret of Fatima to the papacy today. As we know, the Third Secret was not published in its entirety. But the truth cannot be hidden forever.

Parts 2 and 3 are prophecies from the Book of Truth, which give more detail and which were sent by warnings from heaven to us because we didn’t listen to the Fatima message.

Read them all, and see for yourself. (Parts 1, 2 and 3 will be posted during the next few days.)

A 33 Year Journey of a Soul


My sister asked me to write down what I remember about Vatican II. (After her own reflection, she’d been asked for more by readers). I have just read what she wrote and it is very comprehensive. However, from my point of view I can add some things. See https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2016/11/04/a-church-in-change-part-1-a-personal-reflection/ for her reflection.

Post WWII: Pre Vatican days

After we arrived in this country, late in 1949, I was 8 1/2 years old, altarboysand up until that time, I had not had the opportunity of becoming an altar boy.  We were placed into a migrant camp, where a Polish German priest, looking after the spiritual welfare of the migrants asked me to become an altar boy. I am now 75 years old and am still privileged to be able to serve on the altar as an altar server, even though it is now hard for me to kneel at the altar without support due to weakness in my back as a result of a back operation many years ago.

As my sister pointed out in her reflection, most Catholic chilolmc-friendsdren went to Catholic schools where all the teachers were nuns or brothers who were very dedicated to their Faith. As a result we received a good foundation in our Faith. Every Friday the whole school would go to Benediction and a priest would come to our school once a month to hear our Confession and if the Church was next to the School, we would go to confession there. There were always a lot of hymns that we used to sing, so we all know all the old hymns, which we sang at Benediction or the English hymns during the Latin Mass*. The Mass, however, except for the singing was completely silent, the only time the congregation said anything was when the priest turned to face the congregation for Communion  at the “Domine Non Sum Dignus” which was said in English** by all the congregation praying together : “Lord, I am not worthy…”.

(Comment by R.S:*It surprised us here in this country, that many Latin Mass  priests do not like us to sing English hymns during the Latin Low Mass. I don’t know if it was different in other countries pre Vatican II – but why then are there so many old hymns which date back centuries – to be sung at the Offertory and Communion? This was also the case in Europe from where our family emigrated – hymns were sung in the vernacular during the Latin Mass. **The same applies to the “Lord I am not worthy..” When the priest says it the second time, facing the people, we said it in English. Perhaps this was just a custom or indult for this country. I don’t know. At the Latin Mass now, we say it in Latin.)

Mass on a Saturday night, if there was one, did not count for Sunday, and there was only one place in the city that I knew of, that had a Mass on Sunday night. Fasting before Holy Communion was from midnight or from midday if Mass was on a Sunday night.

If there were 2 priests at a parish, the 2nd priest was always there to help distribute Holy Communion (kneeling and on the tongue) which would always take some time, as the church was always full.

When boys reached the age of about 14, Brother would arrange for all the boys who were interested in becoming priests, to spend the day at the seminary and when we arrived we would find hundreds of boys there – all for the same reason.

My last full year at school was 1955. We were in a class where Brother taught 2 classes at the same time (Years 8 and 9) of about 50 children. At this time, the metropolita1963_brothers_with_polly_farmern area was just one archdiocese and Cardinal Gilroy was the man in charge and was a good Cardinal. I was talking to a priest one day and mentioned how friendly Cardinal Gilroy was, and the priest said ”Yes, but if a priest came before him who had done something wrong, he would, with the same smile on his face, tell him that he would go and serve at some unknown place out the “back of Bourke” or somewhere. I, too (as my sister) was confirmed by Cardinal Gilroy and everybody thought very highly of him.

In my last year of school in 1955, I remember thinking at the time, that of the 50 or so boys in our classroom, most of whom would leave school in the next 12 months, I estimated that, about 50% of these boys would never enter a church again except at Christmas or Easter. So this good grounding in the Faith that we received, was not received with faith in a lot of cases and fell on barren ground.

With the Latin Mass, every male was expected to be able to serve on the altar. However, when we left school, we left the altar service, to make way for the younger boys coming up.

At that point, on leaving school, we would join the parish CYO – i.e. the Catholic Youth Organisation. We would have a meeting one night a week, and make plans to go out somewhere – to the pictures (movies), or the beach or bushwalking. And sometimes we would do these things together with the CYO from another parish.

Every Saturday afternoon, from 2 to 4pm there would be confessions at the church and again after 6pm as well.

Death of Pius XII

I remember when Pius XII died, in 1958: the cardinals met at the conclave to elect a new pope and I remember white smoke coming out of the chimney to indicate a pope had been elected. At this time television had only recently become available, but not many people could afford to buy them, so we would go down to the shops and watch it in the shop window. However, shortly afterwards, black smoke came out of the chimney, indicating that the vote was not successful and eventually John XXIII was elected. This caused a stir because the cardinal first elected was denied the right to accept the position.

Vatican II and John XXIII: The Leonine prayers and the Third Secret

John XXIII said  “let us open the windows and let some fresh air into the church” and he summoned the bishops for Vatican II. He also said that any priest or religious that wanted to leave their vocation could do so. As a result many thousands of priests and religious left their life’s vocation. This did not surprise me as I was aware that a lot of them had a faith that had become “lukewarm” (In 1962, I was 21 years old.)

When John XXIII set up Vatican II, he also invited the Russians (I presume he meant the Orthodox prayers-after-low-mass-card-02Bishops). But the Russian Premier Nikita Kruschev, refused to let them out of Russia unless John XXIII gave orders that the prayer to St Michael, and the Leonine prayers, which were said after very Low Mass for the conversion of Russia, were stopped right throughout the world. John XXIII gave that order and from that point on, these prayers were no longer said.

Our Lady of Fatima requested that the 3rd secret of Fatima be revealed no later than 1960. Pius XII died in 1958, and when John XXIII became pope, he read the 3rd secret, but refused to tell the world what it contained. In reference to this he said: “No, this is not for our time”.

Vatican II and Paul VI: the New Mass and the Ottaviani Intervention

He died while Vatican II was still in progress and the next pope was Paul VI. Who instructed Bishop Bugnini to write a new Mass – the Novus Ordo. 5 protestants and one Jewish theologian were invited to Vatican II as observers for the writing of this new Mass. We knew that the reason for all this was to try to convert the protestants to Catholicism. I thought at the time that this was not a good idea because we cannot compromise any part of our Faith. I felt that they were there more than just observers. In fact, when the Novus Ordo was completed, they came out of the meeting and the protestant theologians were shaking each others’ hands and one was heard to say “Not in our wildest dreams did we think we’d achieve so much”.

In the Vatican at the time, there was an old cardinal of humble 325__05838-1469067521-1280-1280background – a holy man who had served a number of popes. His name was Ottaviani and he issued a document called “The Ottaviani Intervention” – a legal document that I understand can still be accessed today. I understand that it warned the Pope that if he authorised this new Novus Ordo Mass, that he would be a heretic. So Pope Paul VI had the N.O. changed slightly so that the Mass would not be heretical. We were left with a watered down version of the old Latin Mass that left a lot of good priests in a state of shock.

Masonic bishops and Fr. Malachi Martin

There was also another Bishop in the Vatican called Bea and he, the same as bishop Bugnini, were both Masons and this Bishop Bea had an Irish Jesuit priest as Secretary called Malachi Martin who went to Pope Paul VI and said that he also wanted to leave the priesthood because in good conscience he could not say this new Mass.

So Paul VI asked him not to leave, and that he would give him permission to say the Latin Mass wherever he might be in the world. What I did not realize was that when all the priests were leaving the priesthood, a lot of our best priests left as well because in conscience they could not say the new Mass. Eventually Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI regulated certain parts of this Mass so that there would be no doubt that the N.O. was an authentic Mass. (E.g the words of Consecration which had been changed were changed back into the original – “for all” was deleted and replaced by ”many”. The clergy excused it saying that it was just an error, – a bad translation – but that’s rubbish – It was deliberate. I never passed a Latin exam, but even I knew that “multis” meant “many’.

Changes gradually introduced into the Mass

So as a young man in the 1960’s and as Vatican II progressed, we wondered where all this was leading to. I remember the Mass changing from Latin to English, which was not really a problem, as Latin stayed the official language of the Church and instead of the priest saying the Mass in Latin, he was now saying the same Mass in English just as we were reading it in our missals. My wife said that even the English was introduced gradually and the first thing they changed was that we were now praying the Our Father out loud in English. So all the changes were very gradual until two years later, when suddenly without any warning or explanation, the old Latin Mass was gone, never to be seen again. And the new Mass was celebrated with the priest no longer facing the Tabernacle, but had turned around and was facing the congregation.

Drastic changes

The changes in the church itself that had already taken place or were in the process of taking place were very drastic. The altar rails were gone, statues were taken away, a new table replaced the old high altar and was placed forward in the sanctuary to enable the priest and acolytes to stand behind it. Some churches took the new table/altar, and put it half way down the aisle which looked silly. But in other places it was a lot more drastic. For instance in Christchurch, NZ the Bishop vandalized the Cathedral. He not only removed the altar rails, he also took down the statues and traditional stations of the Cross. He took out all the pews and burnt them and replaced them with cheap chairs. He dismantled the marble high altar and had it dumped into the ocean.

For his efforts he received a personal letter from Bishop Bugnini thanking him for his achievements. I am sure that there were families in Christchurch who remembered that their parents had with donations, helped build the church and its furnishings of this once beautiful cathedral and I am sure they would not have been happy to see it all destroyed.

Women in the Sanctuary

After things settled down somewhat, our parish priest asked me and a few other men to become acolytes. As I trusted our priest, I thought that if something were not in order, he would tell us. So I agreed and after instructions, we were installed by the Bishop as Acolytes. However, the changes continued. Other women and men became Eucharistic Ministers, but they were not installed by the bishop.

With the old Mass, the only time a woman was allowed inside the altar rails during Mass, was when she was being married with a Nuptial mass, now it seems all this no longer mattered. No one gave out any information. There was only the priest or the local Catholic newspaper to keep us informed.

The treatment of Garabandal

In the early 60’s, the Catholic newspaper wrote about the wonderful things that were happening in Garabandal and then all of a sudden – nothing – as if Garabandal never existed. We were all in the dark, no-one to enlighten us, and I was becoming more and more concerned, and eventually traumatised by what was happening.

A new magazine opened my eyes9780522852745_332x500

As I started to realize that the Church was heading down the path of Protestantism. I thought I was going mad as no-one else showed any concern. Then one day I picked up a magazine called ‘AD 2000” printed by Bob Santamaria, who had started a new branch of a political party this country, but later gave away politics to devote his time to religious matters. He was a protégé of Dr Mannix – Archbishop of another state, who by this time had already died. I discovered that this magazine was full of all the things I realized was now wrong with this new Mass and the path we were taking. So I realized that I was not going mad after all – that there were 1000’s of people all over the world who were concerned about what was happening.

Liturgical matters

One of the things that concerned me was the problem of the use of the big host (about 4”) to celebrate the Mass. (It was supposed to replace all the little hosts that they were trying to get rid of). The priest broke up this big host and small particles flew in every direction. After Mass because of my concern, I used to go around collecting these consecrated fragments: on the altar, in front of the altar where the priest stood, over on the side where the acolytes were given Communion and where the altar rails used to be where the congregation were receiving Communion. As all these pieces of the Host all had rough edges, pieces were falling everywhere and no-one took any notice. At the old Mass, of course, the small hosts were all perfectly formed and a Communion plate was used to catch any particles falling off. By this time I realized that Canon Law stated that only the consecrated hands of a priest or a deacon can touch the Eucharist.

Another big problem in my mind was that in my parish before Christmas and Easter we were invited to a communal confession where the priest gave absolution for venial sins and personal confession was available for serious sins. I thought this strange, but it was supposed to be for the huge numbers going to confession at these times of the year. This went on for a couple of years and then about the third year, I realized that this was different from the previous year and that in fact, that what Father was performing was the third Rite of Confession. I said to my wife that this was illegal under these circumstances.

This eventually became a concern of thoughtful Catholics all over the Western world and people were complaining about it but I seem to remember it took about 3 years before it was properly addressed and the Vatican put a stop to it.

In my mind it was this incident that did a tremendous lot of harm to the Faith of the congregation and the church. Because it seemed to me that from that time on, nearly everybody thought it was no longer necessary to go to Confession and from about that time, all the congregation started to come to Holy Communion and only about 20 people continued to regularly come to Confession.

Searching for another Mass

My sister  and I decided we would have to leave our parishes to look for the old Latin Mass which was taught to us in our Catholic schools by our brothers and nuns. So in the end we left our parish of nearly 50 years and went to a Maronite Mass until we found the Latin Mass. We knew that there was one in the area but we had to find it. I was delivering some literature from the Pilgrims of St Michael (who were visiting our country at the time from Canada). This woman to whom I delivered this literature was going to do a letter box drop and give them to friends and she mentioned that she goes to the Latin Mass. So I found the Mass I was looking for. This was in 2002 which was about 33 years after the introduction of the N.O. A huge weight was lifted from our shoulders and practically from the first day, I was again serving on the altar and it seemed that it was only yesterday that I had last served the Latin Mass. We had “come home” to where there is no doubt and everything was as it should be.

I came to realize, because of Bob Santamaria and the AD200 magazine and the Jesuit priest Malachi Martin, that the modernist bishops were taking control of the church and had co-erced conservative bishops in letting them have their way by putting up a front of solidarity. The bishops, in turn, forced this new point of view onto their priests, because if a priest refused to do as a Bishop said, the Bishop would strip him of his faculties. In most cases the priest that remained did not have the courage to say to the Bishop that he refused to say this new Mass and to go along with the changes, and to say that he refused to resign. There were not many priests with that sort of courage.

More Effects of the Novus Ordo

When all this came to a conclusion, with the attempted excommunication of the sodality_of_mary_agm_at_centocow_1Latin Mass, all the Sodalities were stopped, such as The Holy Name Society, the Legion of Mary, the Children of Mary,*** etc.

On the other hand, they introduced Parish councils which meant setting up committees of all types that were deemed to be needed. In other words, committees telling the priest how to do his job, which no good priest could tolerate. As if the priest was not already busy enough, now he had to contend with a bunch of lay people telling him how to do his job. However, in all this, the St Vincent de Paul society was left alone.

So from my point of view, all that had happened from Vatican II up to the present time was the first step to get us ready for what is happening now: that is, the attempt of  the total destruction of Christ’s church on earth.

Reflection by Crusader J.

Comment by R.S. *** I remember that the children of Mary would wear their blue cloaks over their wedding gown when they walked down the aisle. Although, unlike the picture attached, the cloaks were usually beneath the knee  or mid calf.


The Third Secret according to those who know!


“A pope under the control of Satan” is explicitly mentioned in the real Third Secret of Fatima prophecy. This has been leaked by numerous high-ranking Vatican clerics and advisors to Popes… e.g. Fr. Malachi Martin, Fr Kramer, Fr Gruner, Bishop Williamson, Fr Hesse…

It is correct.

The Third Secret Published in 2000

Whilst the (supposed) Third Secret was published on 26 June 2000, by Pope St. John Paul lI, there has been much controversy and evidence suggesting that it is not the REAL secret.

Much evidence has been collated about the size of the paper it was written on and the very handwriting of Lucy herself and various hints and statements by cardinals, bishops and even Popes themselves about what it contains.

Third Secret as published on 26th June, 2000

The text that was released by the Vatican is as follows:
“After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in front of it’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’. Other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious going up a steep mountain, at the top of which there was a big Cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark; before reaching there the Holy Father passed through a big city half in ruins and half trembling with halting step, afflicted with pain and sorrow, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met on his way; having reached the top of the mountain, on his knees at the foot of the big Cross he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him, and in the same way there died one after another the other Bishops, Priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions. Beneath the two arms of the Cross there were two Angels, each with a crystal aspersorium in his hand, in which they gathered up the blood of the Martyrs and with it sprinkled the souls that were making their way to God.”

“a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father” – why was it an impression? (was it because there were two popes?)
“he was killed by a group of soldiers” – despite assertions that this referred to Pope St JPII when he was shot – the fact is – he wasn’t killed!!!’ And it wasn’t by a group of soldiers! This still has to happen..

The real third Secret contains other events – such as has been prophesied by St Francis of Assisi and Bl. Catherine Emmerich (which can be found elsewhere on this site).

Pope St. Jp II himself alluded to some of the content in the prayer he composed for the Consecration of the world that he did, after he had read the third secret:
He mentioned:
“From famine and war, deliver us.
From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, from every kind of war, deliver us. 
From sins against the life of man from its very beginning, deliver us.
From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity of the children of God, deliver us.
From every kind of injustice in the life of society, both national and international, deliver us.
From readiness to trample on the commandments of God, deliver us.
From attempts to stifle in human hearts the very truth of God, deliver us.
From the loss of awareness of good and evil, deliver us.
From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us, deliver us.
Accept, O Mother of Christ, this cry laden with the sufferings of all individual human beings, laden with the sufferings of whole societies. …etc “

These all sound familiar.  We are  living through many of these, and expecting the rest.

Other evidence:
Famous Fatima scholar, Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité, in his 850-page work, The Third Secret outlines his investigation. He sums up his findings as follows:
“Having reached the end of our inquiry, we are able to discern, with near certainty, the essential elements of Our Lady’s final secret:
• While ‘in Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved,’ in many nations, perhaps in almost the entire world, the Faith will be lost.
• The pastors of the Church will fail gravely in the duties of their office. Through their fault, consecrated souls and the Faithful in great number will let themselves be seduced by pernicious errors spread everywhere.
• This will be the time of the decisive battle between the Blessed Virgin and the devil. A wave of diabolical disorientation will be hurled over the world.
Satan will introduce himself even to the highest summit of the Church. He will blind the minds and harden the hearts of pastors.
• And God will deliver them to themselves as a chastisement for their refusal to obey the requests of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
• This will be the great apostasy predicted for the ‘last times’; ‘the False Lamb’ and ‘False Prophet’ will betray the Church to the profit of ‘the Beast,’ according to the prophecy of the Apocalypse.”

Cardinal Ratzinger, when interviewed in 1984 after Bishop Ito approved apparitions at Akita in Japan, stated that he had read the Third Secret and that it speaks of “The dangers threatening the faith and the life of the Christian, and therefore the world, and also the importance of the last times.” He also stated “But the things contained in this Third Secret correspond to what is announced in Scripture and are confirmed by many other Marian apparitions….”
Howard Dee stated that “Cardinal Ratzinger personally confirmed to me that these two messages, of Fatima and Akita, are essentially the same.” In the publication, however, of the Ratzinger Report, these words were deleted. Obviously he had said too much.
There is obviously much that has not been publicly announced about the third Secret.
