Friends and Benefactors,
is like unto … the Mother of God?” Such an inspired adaptation
of St Michael’s war cry by a venerable sage of India gives the
key to the on-going Fatima drama. When the Seat of Wisdom is sent
to the earth and deigns to speak, it is eminently wise to listen
and to execute her commands, her heavenly requests. The stewards
at the marriage feast of Cana, to their great joy, discovered
it the right way, by being the instruments of Our Lord’s very
first miracle; the popes of the XXth century, from Pope Pius XI
to the present Holy Father, to their great dismay have discovered
it the wrong way, ie., by witnessing to the holocaust of more
than 100 million deaths in the various communist countries, and
the apostasy of Europe since 1917.
(my requests are not heeded), she (Russia) will spread her errors
throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the
Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much
to suffer, various nations will be annihilated” (Fatima, July
the best studies available of the Third Secret, it is morally
certain that it announced that in the 1960s there would be an
Ecumenical Council which will bring about the apostasy of Europe.
Could there also be a mentioned of the change in the Mass, and
of a Pope leading the Church in this true revolution? Time will
tell. But one thing is sure: Our blessed Lady obviously knew what
had already been plotted in the secret Masonic lodges for many
years already, and it would not be surprising that at Fatima she
came to forewarn the Church of this evil plot.
infamous excommunicated Canon Roca (1830-1893), who preached revolution
and Church “reform,” also predicted a future change in the liturgy:
“[T]he divine cult in the form directed by the liturgy,
ceremonial, ritual and regulations of the Roman Church will shortly
undergo a transformation at an ecumenical council, which
will restore to it the venerable simplicity of the golden age
of the Apostles in accordance with the dictates of conscience
and modern civilization.” (Athanasius and the Church of our
Time, by. Dr. R. Graber, 1974, p.35).
the above statement, Roca was adding details to The Permanent
Instruction of the Alta Vendita, published by order of Pope Gregory
XVI and approved by Pope Pius IX in 1861. This Instruction clearly
speaks of ‘a pope according to our (Masonic) needs…”, boasts of
eventually having “the little finger of the successor of Peter
engaged in the ploy”, and describes a pontiff who “like most
of his contemporaries, will be necessarily more or less imbued
with the (revolutionary) Italian and humanitarian principles that
(they) were about to put into circulation”. (The Permanent
Instruction of the Alta Vendita, J. Vennari, TAN, pp. 7-9).
the enemies of the Church were aiming at preparing 1) a pope according
to their ideas, 2) a General Council and 3) great changes in the
Br. Michael, in volume 3 of his authoritative books, The Whole
Truth about Fatima, gives many texts of unimpeachable witnesses
establishing with absolute certitude that the Third Secret had
to be disclosed by 1960, or in 1960. Here are two of these texts.
Barthas, in a book published in1952 wrote the account of his conversations
with Sr. Lucy in 1946 and in 1950. He asked her:
will the third element of the Secret be revealed to us?” Already
in 1946 Lucy and the Bishop of Leiria answered me uniformly, without
hesitation and without comment: “In 1960”. And when I pushed my
audacity so far as to ask why it was necessary to wait until then,
the only response I received from both was: “Because the Blessed
Virgin wishes it so.” (Br. Michael, op.cit. p. 472)
Ottaviani met Sr. Lucy on May 17, 1955, and when, 12 years later,
he recalled this meeting, he said he had asked Sr. Lucy “Why this
date?” (1960) and she had answered, “Because then it will seem
clearer” (‘mais claro’ in Portuguese). (Br. Michael, op.cit. p.
1960 was nearing, Pope John XXIII wanted to look into this Fatima
Secret. After reading it around August 17, 1959, in his summer
residence of Castel Gondolfo, the pope, as Archbishop Capovila
testified (see the next article on p. 6), simply asked his secretary
to write on the envelope: ‘I do not express any judgment’ because
the message ‘may be a Divine manifestation or may not be’. Or
according to Fr. Alonso, John XXIII declared more precisely: “This
does not concern the years of my pontificate”. (Br. Michael, p.
557) And he continued with the preparation of Vatican II which
was already going full blast.
VI read it in 1963 and in 1965, according to Archbishop Capovilla.
Paul II read it in 1982, before his trip to Fatima. He ‘released’
it on June 26, 2000, but with the official explanation (through
the mouth of Archbishop Bertone) that it only concerned the past
events of the XXth century, and no longer the future, and consequently,
that the message of Fatima was now a ‘fait accompli’.
Ratzinger, now the reigning Pontiff, also read it before he became
can then say that the recent popes refused to serve, to obey the
Queen of Heaven and earth, of men and of angels, on that important
issue. How is it possible? Archbishop Capovilla gave a hint to
the answer when he said that it was hard to discern, in the message
of Fatima, what was from Our Lady and what was from the seer.
In other words, the thesis of Fr. Dhanis S.J. of that is, part
of the secret of Fatima was simply the fruit of Sr. Lucy’s imagination,
is still very alive in the Vatican. They do not reveal it because
they do not really believe it is from Our Lady.
alongside the last stages for the recent liberalization of the
Traditional Mass — from October 2006 to the present — Heaven seems
to activate the authorities of the Church to also clarify this
matter of the Third Secret of Fatima. Because it is far from being
over. As the following article will show, it is now more certain
than ever that there are two parts of the Third Secret, and that
only one was made public in June 2000.
argument in favor of the conclusion that the missing part speaks
of an apostasy in Europe caused by an Ecumenical Council,
is the very attitude of the Holy Father towards Vatican II. Already
before, but clearly since his election, Benedict XVI is constantly
endeavoring to save the honor of the Council, thus to prove the
Fatima message wrong. He certainly admits that there is a general
apostasy in the Catholic countries – his ‘Ratzinger Report’ said
as much way back in 1985 – but he still refuses to admit that
the real cause was the Council itself and not just the interpretation
of the Council. He claims the texts of the Councils have been
misinterpreted in the name of the ‘spirit of the Council’. He
stated in his Christmas address of December 22, 2005 to the Curia:
many the spirit of the Council meant) “(i)n a word: it would
be necessary not to follow the texts of the Council but its
spirit. In this way, obviously, a vast margin was left open
for the question on how this spirit should subsequently be defined
and room was consequently made for every whim. The nature of
a Council as such is therefore basically misunderstood. (…)
correct attitude should be fidelity to the texts:) “However,
wherever this interpretation (ie., fidelity to the texts-Ed.)
guided the implementation of the Council, new life developed
and new fruit ripened. Forty years after the Council, we can
show that the positive is far greater and livelier than it appeared
to be in the turbulent years around 1968. Today, we see that
although the good seed developed slowly, it is nonetheless growing;
and our deep gratitude for the work done by the Council is likewise
we have to say: where is the real difference between following
the ‘spirit of the Council’ and the ‘text of the Council’? Hasn’t
the Holy Father continued and encouraged all the ecumenical ventures
of his predecessors? Has the ‘Spirit of Assisi’ been revoked?
Certainly not. As recently as Oct. 21-23, 2007, there was another
inter-religious meeting in Naples, organized by the Community
of Sant’ Egidio. Present were: 4 Cardinals, including two of the
Roman Curia (Card. Tauran and Kasper), the great Rabbis of Rome
and Israel, Buddhist monks, the Patriarchs of Moscow and Constantinople,
the head of the Churches of Europe (a Protestant Pastor), etc.
Just before the start of the gathering, the Holy Father himself
addressed the participants:
meeting takes us back in spirit to 1986, when my venerable Predecessor
John Paul II invited important Religious Representatives to
the hills of St Francis to pray for peace, stressing on that
occasion the intrinsic ties that combine an authentic religious
attitude with keen sensitivity to this fundamental good of humanity.
(…) The Catholic Church intends to continue on the path of dialogue
in order to encourage understanding between the different cultures,
traditions and forms of religious wisdom. I warmly hope that
this spirit will be spread increasingly, especially where tensions
are strongest, where freedom and respect for others are denied
and where men and women suffer the consequences of intolerance
one hand, we are told that we haven’t as yet seen the real Vatican
II and that the ‘spirit of the Council’ is wrong, but on the other
hand the Holy Father continues to promote the very ‘Spirit of
Assisi’ and the New Mass, which are the deadliest fruits of Vatican
II. Rightly did St Pius X write in his now centenary Encyclical
Pascendi that modernists live in a constant contradiction.
is all the more admirable then that the Mother of God steps in
at this moment. She will not be silenced. “Who is like unto
.. the Mother of God?” Neither God nor His Immaculate Mother
can be mocked. She has promised that Her Immaculate Heart will
triumph. She will keep her promise.
timing of the two issues — Traditional Mass & Third Secret
— is extremely judicious and revealing. It immediately makes one
think of Don Bosco’s dream of the ship of the Church between the
two columns, the Holy Eucharist and the Immaculate Madonna. And
what is quite interesting as well is that the true devotees of
Fatima who still had reserves about the Traditional Mass are understanding
better the situation of crisis in the Church and are coming closer
to the Traditional Mass. We have some beautiful and very recent
examples in the Philippines in particular to prove this.
will see further in the Chronicle
the details and the fruits of the campaign for the Traditional
Mass which has started soon after the Motu Proprio came out July
7th, 2007. The number of Traditional Masses having increased worldwide,
let us continue to pray that it will bring about the consecration
of Russia and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
