Fatima Third Secret Released Amid Charges of Forgery by Vatican Officials
The newly revealed third part of the secret picks up where the second left off, with a vision of the Virgin set against an A angel with a flaming sword@ threatening to A set the world on fire@ unless the people of the earth do penance.
On the earth, the children saw a A bishop dressed in white... half trembling with halting step@ making his way through a city A half in ruins@ and strewn with corpses.
The bishop in white, joined by other believers, was heading toward a mountain, on the top of which was planted A a big cross of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork tree with bark.@
As he reached the top of the mountain and knelt in prayer at the foot of the cross, A he was killed by a group of soldiers who fired bullets and arrows at him.@
Alongside him were killed A one after another@ the A bishops, priests, men and women Religious, and various lay people of different ranks and positions@ who had accompanied him up the mount.
The vision ends with the image of A the blood of the martyrs@ being gathered up in crystal vessels by two angels who stood beneath the arms of the cross, and being A sprinkled [on] the souls that were making their way to God.
In his commentary, Cardinal Ratzinger characterized it as a prophetic vision of the 20th century in which the world is seen under A the threat of judgment@ unless there is conversion of hearts to Christ.
The mountain and the city A symbolize the arena of human history,@ which he said is a journey of A arduous ascent to the summit@ ---to the cross of Christ--- A the goal and guide of history.@
Parts I & II of Fatima SecretSister Lucia dos Santos:
Well, the secret is made up of three distinct parts, two of which I am now going to reveal.
The first part is the vision of hell.
Our Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared us by promising, in the first apparition, to take us to heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear and terror.
We then looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so kindly and so sadly:
A You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.@
Part III of the Secret of FatimaReleased June 26, 2000 A.D.
English translation from Portuguese of Sister Lucia dos Santos.
The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima on 13 July 1917.
A I write in obedience to You, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency, the Bishop of Leiria and through Your Most Holy Mother and mine.
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 they would set the world on fire but they died out in contact with the splendor 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.
Sister Lucia insists that this is a vision of atheistic communism decimating the Church.
Pope= s Assassin was hired by Vatican insidersIstanbul, Turkey-AP-Gunmen Mehmet Ali Agca accused the Vatican of being the A enemy of God and humanity@ and called on the pope to resign immediately from A devils center.@
Italy pardoned Agca and extradited him to Turkey on June 13 after serving 19 years for the 1981 shooting of the pope after the Vatican reassured the government that John Paul supported the act of clemency.
Agca also issued a handwritten statement through his lawyer accusing the Vatican of A changing@ the secrets of Fatima and of orchestrating the 1981 assassination attempt against the pope.
A Oh My Dear Brother Pope:
Resign! Resign right away and return to Poland,@ Agca wrote. A You are a good man. You cannot sit at the top of the devil= s center, the Vatican and at the top of history= s dump. My Catholic brothers, I love you. Why do you not abandon a Vatican which arranges the assassination of its own pope?@
Agca is serving a 10-year sentence in Turkey for killing a liberal newspaper editor and is on trial for two armed robberies in 1979.
Clare Sterling wrote a book which determined that Russia arranged the assassination through the Bulgarian embassy in Rome. Since there were many communist and masonic prelates in the Vatican, some of them might have arranged the assassination of the pope thru their communist links as Agca has explained. Agca would know as he was involved with the persons who planned the assassination.
Ratzinger criticizes Fr. GrunerThe Vatican= s top theologian, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger said, A Those who expected exciting apocalyptic revelations about the end of the world or the future course of history are bound to be disappointed.@
In response to reporters= questions, Cardinal Ratzinger chided the world= s leading Fatima speculator, a Canadian priest named Father Nicholas Gruner, who for decades has accused the Vatican of concealing the secret because it foretold the end of this era and because the Vatican had disobeyed the Virgin= s call to A consecrate@ Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Russia, China Threaten United StatesBEIJING --- The presidents of Russia and China on July 18 attacked U.S. plans for a missile defense system as an attempt to dominate the world.
In a sharply worded statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Jiang Zemin accused the United States of undermining global strategic stability, and they warned of a new arms race.
The United States would use a national missile defense A to seek unilateral military and security advantages,@ the statement said.
China and Russia hope that by forming a A strategic partnership@ they can better resist what they perceive as expanding U.S. influence.
China= s chief arms negotiator, Sha Zukang, warned that deploying the systems could unravel nearly 30 years of efforts to control the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
Children of Mary Being Forced to Move.Our residence and place of business in a small apartment building is being sold to foreign investors at a very high price so that the low rent of $339 will almost double. We had the lowest rent in Ft. Lauderdale where rents average $650. Escrow is proceeding and if it fails, there are 4 other offers for the building. We have packed everything we do not use everyday and are using the last month= s rent and deposits to pay the July-August rent. We need to raise enough for a rental truck and rent in St. Petersburg as that city has more affordable housing although their rents are rising quickly also.
Our cash on hand is $181 which is insufficient to do any moving or renting a new place or finishing mailing this issue to all the subscribers..

Sister Lucia= s Handwriting Forged in Vatican= s Version of 3rd SecretThese Last Day= s Ministries hired a world renowned handwriting expert who determined that the letter from Sister Lucia detailing the Third Secret of Fatima was a forgery. While admitting that it is difficult to analyze documents from the web, the experts showed how the Vatican version used handwriting of a different person passing it off as Sister Lucia= s writing. The documents can be viewed on the web at: http://www.tldm.org
Since there are many communists and masons in the Vatican, you can not assume the truth is being given. Remember the altar girl fiasco where lower Vatican officials instituted altar girls against the wishes of the Pope.
Father Gruner will make his comments in the next issue of the Fatima Crusader.
Frank Albas also agrees the documents were forged. His website is: http://www.rosesfromheaven.com
There is another major problem that in October 1962 the Vatican released a Fatima message of October 13, 1917 that details a third world war and that Satan would rule the Church and world. The secrets were given on July 13, 1917. The October 13 message is next and details how Satan would enter the Church which is what the Vatican is trying to hide. This message was released by the Vatican in October 1962 during the Cuban Missile Crisis and given only to diplomatic circles. The message was published by Nues Europa newspaper.
Fatima Message of October 13, 1917The Mother of God revealed a special message to Lucy, which states in particular: A Do not be troubled, dear child. I am the Mother of God speaking to you and begging you to proclaim in my name the following message to the entire world.
A In doing so, you will meet with strong opposition. But be strong in faith and you will triumph over all opposition. Listen carefully and remember what I tell you: the good people must become better. They must implore God to forgive the sins they have committed and will in the future commit. You ask me for a sign so all may comprehend the words which I am addressing to mankind through you. You have just beheld that miracle of the sun. Everybody saw it----believers and unbelievers. And now announce in my name.
A A great chastisement will come over all mankind; not today or tomorrow, but in the second half of the twentieth century (by December 31, 2000). What I had already announced at LaSalette through the children Melanie and Maximin, I repeat to you now. Humanity has not developed as God desired. Mankind has been sacrilegious and has trampled underfoot the gifts of God.@ No longer does order reign anywhere. Even in the highest places Satan reigns and directs the course of events. Satan will succeed in infiltrating into the highest positions in the Church. Satan will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of scientists who will design weapons that can destroy great portions of mankind in a few minutes. Satan will gain hold of heads of nations and will cause these destructive weapons to be mass produced.
A If mankind will not oppose these evils, I will be obliged to let fall My Son= s arm. If the chief rulers of the world and of the Church will not actively oppose these evils, I will ask God my Father to visit His Justice upon mankind. Then will God punish mankind even more severely and harshly than He fid at the time of the great Deluge. The great and powerful will perish along with the lowly and weak.
A A time of very severe trial is also coming for the Church. Cardinals will oppose Cardinals and Bishops will oppose Bishops. Satan will enter into their very midst. In Rome also, there will occur great changes. What is rotten will fall, and what falls must not be retained. The Church will be obscured, and all the world will be thrown into great confusion.
A The great, great war will come in the second half of the twentieth century (by December 31, 2000). Fire and smoke will fall from heaven, and the waters of the ocean will turn to steam, throwing their foam to the very sky. Whatever is standing will be overturned. Millions of people will die. Those surviving will envy the dead. Distress, misery and desolation will be found the world over.@
A The time is drawing nearer, and the abyss is ever deepening. There will be no escape: the good will die with the wicked, the great with the lowly, the princes of the Church with the faithful, the rulers of the nations with their people. Death will reign everywhere, raised to triumph by erring men, the helpers of Satan who will be masters of the earth. These evils will come at a time when no one expects it: nevertheless, it must come as punishment and revenge in accordance with God= s plan.@
A The age of ages is coming, the end of all ends if mankind will not repent and be converted, and if this conversion does not come from rulers of the world and of the Church. Woe and greater woe to mankind if conversion does not occur.@
A Later, however, those who survive those trials, if they will repent and will call upon God in submission to His Will and become true followers of Jesus Christ, My Son, I will gather them and become their intercessor. But woe and more woe if that conversion does not occur. Go, my child, and announce it. I will assist you.@
Comet to pass near earthWASHINGTON--(AFP)--
Comet LINEAR -S4, discovered in 1999 and now visible to the naked eye, will come nearest to earth on July 23, at a safe 35 million miles, NASA says.
The relatively small core of rocks and ice with a vaporous tail of gas and dust is the most brilliant comet to visit our solar system since the spectacular Hale-Bopp comet in 1997.
LINEAR -S4 will cross the sky about 30 degrees above the horizon in the Northern Hemisphere, near the relatively star-poor area around the Big Dipper in late July.
The comet will be visible in the Southern Hemisphere in early August, but by then it will have lost much of its brilliance and will skirt a few degrees above the horizon.
The galactic visitor comes from the Oort Cloud, a giant reservoir of comets that astronomers theorize has been existing for around four billion years about 4.6 billion miles from the sun which is 90 million miles from the earth.
Every once in a while, astronomers estimate, a gravitational disturbance dislodges one of these comets, setting it on a collision course with our solar system.
Most likely, it is a warning from God that bigger comets may be coming if we do not do penance.

Sr. Lucia= s handwriting forged; handwriting experts determineReport by Robert D. Kullman, Forensic Document Analyst of Speckin Forensic Laboratories; 2105 University Park Dr; Okemos, MI 48864, the firm that analyzed the handwriting of the Jon Benet Ramsey case.
1. Analyzed text of third secret on website, pages 6-10.
Purported Known Writings by Sister Lucy
Letters of December 17, 1927; May 29, 1930; November 17, 1935; April 13, 1980; July 13, 1989.
My examination task is to determine if the A Third Secret@ writings and the purported known writings by Sister Lucy were written by the same person. My examination is limited to overall letter formations, proportions, spacing and the format of the writing.
The purported known writings by Sister Lucy, covering over 50 years, contain numerous relatively consistent and repetitive handwriting habits, which indicates the known writings are all of the same person.
When I attempt to integrate the repetitive handwriting habits in the purported known writings by Sister Lucy, spanning from 1927 to 1989, with the repetitive handwriting habits found in the Questioned Document A Third Secret@ , I find significant formative and proportional differences between many of the letters and letter combinations.
Many of these differences are visibly noticeable in the capital letters, such as the B, P & S; however, because of the quality of the copies, are less detectable in the lower case letters. The more definitive differences in the lower case letters is discoverable in the extensions below and above the base of the writings; such as the extension of the A g@ and the hump of the A h@ below the base and the A t@ and A I@ above the base of the writing.
I, also, find format differences between the margin and indentations of the purported known writings by Sister Lucy and the Questioned Document A Third Secret@ .
The criteria for the identification of handwriting is that the cumulative range of variation exhibited in the questioned writing and in the known writing contains substantial significant similarities with no fundamental or significant differences.
Since I find a number of significant differences between the writing in the Questioned Document A Third Secret@ and the purported known writings by Sister Lucy, it is my opinion, based on the documents examined, that the Questioned Document A Third Secret@ can not be identified with the purported known writings by Sister Lucy.
Further, it is my opinion that the number of differences noted in my comparison indicates that it is unlikely the Questioned Document A Third Secret@ was written by the same person who authored the purported known writings by Sister Lucy.
To render a more definitive opinion, it would be necessary to examine either the original documents or one to one photographs that accurately reproduce the original documents.
Very Truly Yours,
Robert D. Kullman
Forensic Document Analyst
Mr. Kullman, a state trooper from 1966, under went a three year residency training program beginning in Feb. 1972 in the Michigan State Police crime laboratory in the questioned document section examining handwriting, typewriting, printing, ink, paper, photocopy machines and dating of documents. Typical cases involved the authenticating of signatures in wills, personal guarantees, contracts and identifying the author of harassing handwritten or typewritten letters. The alteration of business and medical records most often take the form of exculpatory additions made at a time subsequent to the original entries. The dating of these additions can be proved through modern forensic document examinations. The equipment used in this field ranges from simply magnifying glasses to infra red scanning instruments and E.S.D.A.
During and after his three year residency he did additional study in forensic document analysis at Georgetown University, the U.S. Secret Service laboratory, the Federal Bureau of Investigation laboratory and Western Michigan University School of Paper Technology. He has testified as an expert witness in district courts, municipal courts, probate courts, circuit courts and federal courts, in excess of 150 times. Upon completing his training he was promoted to Detective Sergeant and worked full time in the crime laboratory system for nearly fourteen years until Dec. 1988. Since 1988 he has continued to work as a private consultant in civil and criminal cases. In June 1998 he contracted with Mr. Leonard Speckin= s firm as a full time document analyst.
Another handwriting expert determines Sr. Lucy= s handwriting forgedHaving examined and manipulated the items offered, it does seem as though the conclusion of forgery is valid, assuming that the handwriting offered in all cases is as warranted.
The hand that penned the presumed forgery appears to have left traces of the effort in the writing. Great care was taken in that article in that the > weight= of the stroke is almost flat, relative to the plane of the paper, throughout the whole document. Humans don= t as a rule write that way. As an expert on legibility (among other things), I can state with some confidence that except for persons trained in the ritual art of copying or caligraphy, humans leave impressions in the act of writing which betrays things like how the body was held at the time of the writing. Such things as whether there is something to act as a wrist brace and how far away from the writing surface, all leave impressions in the act of writing.
The offered document has none of these apparent. In fact, the absence of normal human writing > quavers= (as they are known in the trade) suggests with some certainty that this person was trained to penmanship as an adult. Such people are rare these days, except in the Catholic and Orthodox (Russian/Greek) Churches. I discount caligraphers even amateurs as their styles are not so clearly Roman.
So maybe a forgery. At least the writing is totally inconsistent from one to the next.
China receives 2nd Russian warship aimed at US Aircraft CarriersNewsMax.com, July 12, 2000
Communist China is receiving from Russia the second of four advanced warships armed with super-missiles aimed at knocking out United States aircraft-carrier battle groups.
It is a move aimed at countering any US move to honor its pledge to defend Taiwan against China= s threatened attack from the mainland. China has installed many missiles on the mainland opposite Taiwan for the future invasion.
Bipartisan members of Congress are so alarmed by this new weapon - which the Navy admits it has little ability to defend against - they are sponsoring legislation to cut off US aid to Russia unless it halts all further sales of A this 200-kiloton nuclear capable weapon.@
Citing its well-placed military-intelligence sources within the Pentagon, the Washington Times is reporting that the second Sovremenny-class advanced warship Beijing is buying from Moscow has been spotted undergoing sea trials in the Gulf of Finland.
What has American observers concerned even more, the exercises are expected to include at least one test launch of the Russian onboard SS-N-22 Sunburn anti-ship cruise missile, which is what makes the Russian vessel so awesome.
Even without the other two installments of the four-ship procurement, this latest acquisition from Russia---which is receiving billions in US aid to bolster its economy---will give the Communist Chinese People= s Liberation Army frightening new capabilities against US aircraft-carrier battle groups.
Operated by a mixed crew of Russian and Chinese sailors, the first cruise-missile ship, delivered from Russia in February, is currently going through test runs of the Chinese coast, within easy range of Taiwan.
Its arrival in the region was followed within weeks by a shipment of two dozen of the dreaded Russian-made SS-N-22 missiles this spring.
Those developments take on great significance when considered against the background of recent Russia-to-China sales of missile-equipped destroyers, Su-27 aircraft, Kilo-class submarines and satellite navigation systems for missile guidance.
Just recently, Moscow announced that it will begin sending to China the first 10 of 40 advanced Su-30 warplanes.
Those purchases are funded by cash, much of which China has been able to garner from its lopsided favorable balance of trade with the United States. Congress is considering legislation to grant China permanent normal trade status which would boost even more the communist regime= s global trading ability.
There is no longer any question that Russia, a direct recipient of massive aid in U.S. tax dollars, is embarked on a deliberate and extensive program to help bring the Chinese war machine up to world-class standards, or that Beijing= s ultimate target is the United States.
The Washington Times reports that the leader of concerned congressmen on both sides of the aisle, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., says, A The SS-N-22 is the most dangerous anti-ship missile in the Russian, and now the Chinese, fleet.
A Our Navy admittedly has scant ability to defend against this 200-kiloton nuclear-capable weapon@ according to the wording of Rohrabacher= s bill to rein in Russian missile sales by denying further U.S. financial bail-out assistance to Moscow.
A Currently the Russian and Chinese governments are discussing the sale of two additional Sovremenny destroyers.
A The supersonic Moskit [SS-N-22] missile, which can be mounted on a naval or mobile land platform, was designed specifically to destroy American aircraft carriers and other warships equipped with advanced Aegis radar and battle-management systems.
A The United States Navy considers the missile to be extremely difficult to defend against.@
As all this was going on, Defense Secretary William S. Cohen flew in to Beijing in July to hold talks with his Chinese counterpart, Defense Minister Chi Haotian.
Cohen= s arrival was greeted by an official Communist Chinese statement repeating its attacks on the U.S. for proposing a national missile-defense system which so far has failed most of its in-flight tests.
Calling it a part of American plans to dominate the world, the Chinese statement said: A We urge the United States to drop as soon as possible this plan which does not serve its interest and harms that of others.@
Cohen said earlier that part of the objective of his mission to Beijing was to assure the Chinese government that the limited U.S. missile-defense shield would not pose a threat to China.
Russia plans to conquer United StatesOur Lady at Flushing Meadows, New York said: A For it is Russia= s plan to subdue you once they get the billions that they need in aid, to bring up the economy and buy more armaments.@ Today, Russia may be conducting nuclear deception on a far vaster scale beneath Yamantau Mountain, where it has dug out a gigantic underground military complex designed to withstand a sustained nuclear assault. U.S. intelligence sources say that the Yamantau complex is but one of some 200 secret deep underground nuclear war-fighting sites in Russia, many of which have been significantly upgraded over the past six years at the cost of billions of dollars. Since 1991, U.S. intelligence sources believe the Russian government has pumped more than $6 billion into Yamantau alone, to construct a sprawling underground complex that spans an area as large as Washington, D.C., inside the Beltway---some 400 square miles...Russia is pouring money into this and other underground nuclear sites at the same time U.S. taxpayers have provided billions of dollars in aid to Russia to help dismantle nuclear warheads taken off line as a result of START I and START II treaties.
Our Lady: A They have not disposed of their armaments, my child and my children. They store them in other nations.@
It is now known that the Soviet Union used secret underground bases in Eastern Europe to conceal nuclear missiles at the end of the Cold War, as an integral part of its nuclear war-fighting strategy. In all, some 73 SS-23 missiles, packing a nuclear punch 365 times the bomb that detonated over Hiroshima, were hidden by the Soviets in violation of the INF Treaty, which went into force in June 1988.
Critique of alleged third secret textCONTENT:
C Alleged third secret is two pages, double-sided. Genuine Third Secret is written on one sheet of notepaper;
C Alleged third secret has 62 lines. Genuine Third Secret has approximately 23 lines.
C Alleged third secret does not include the first line of the genuine Third Secret, A In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved...@ , nor is it a continuation or explanation of this theme;
C Alleged third secret= s content fails to explain why its release to the public was supressed for forty years. The genuine Third Secret is terrible, frightening, and apocalyptic in content;
C Alleged third secret is a forgery (documentation provided earlier in this issue);
C Sister Lucy has been the victim of forgeries before.
ONE SHEET OF NOTEPAPER:
On January 9, 1944, Sister Lucy wrote to Bishop da Silva: A I have written what you asked me; God willed to try me a little, but finally this was indeed His will: [the text] is sealed in an envelope and it is on a piece of notepaper...@ (Quoted by Father Alonso, official archivist of Fatima, A Fatima 50,@ October 13, 1967, p.11).
A There is, in the first place, the marked brevity of the written Secret. Lucia tells us that she wrote it on one sheet of paper. Cardinal Ottaviani, who has read it, tells us the same thing: > She has written on one sheet of paper (folha in Portuguese) what Our Lady told her to tell the Holy Father.= @ (The Secret of Fatima: Fact and Legend, Fr. Joaquin Alonso, p.65.)
APPROXIMATELY 23 LINES
After an urgent interrogation of Sister Lucy by Cardinal Ottaviani in May 1955, the Holy Office rescinded its earlier rejection of the text of the Third Secret and requested it be delivered to Rome by the Nuncio in Lisbon. Just before the envelope was brought to the Nuncio, Bishop da Silva= s auxiliary, Bishop Venancio, held it up to the light: He could clearly discern the 23 lines in Sister Lucy= s handwriting which comprise one of the greatest mysteries in the history of the modern world.
Bishop Venancio related that once he was by himself, he took the great envelope of the Secret and tried to look through it and see the contents. In the bishop= s large envelope he discerned a smaller envelope, that of Sister Lucy, and inside this envelope an ordinary sheet of paper with margins on each side of three quarters of a centimeter. He took the trouble to note the size of everything. Thus the final Secret of Fatima was written on a small sheet of paper. (The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III, Bro. Michael of the Holy Trinity, p.481)
ALLEGED THIRD SECRET DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FIRST LINE OF THE THIRD SECRET AS WRITTEN IN SISTER LUCY= S FOURTH MEMOIRS, A IN PORTUGAL, THE DOGMA OF THE FAITH WILL ALWAYS BE PRESERVED...@ NOR IS IT A CONTINUATION OR EXPLANATION OF THIS THEME.
The great Fr. Joaquin Alonso, the official Fatima archivist, wrote the following concerning the Third Secret: A In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved= . This sentence in all clarity implies the critical state of the faith which will befall other nations. That is to say that there will be a crisis of faith, while Portugal will save its faith. Therefore, in the period which precedes the great Triumph of the Heart of Mary, the terrible things which are the object of the third part of the Secret, will occur. Which ones? If, > In Portugal, the dogmas of faith will always be preserved,= one can deduce from it with perfect clarity that in other parts of the Church these dogmas either are going to become obscure or else even be lost altogether. Thus it is quite possible that in this intermediate period which is in question (after 1960 and before the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary), the text makes concrete reference to the negligence of the pastors themselves.....One conclusion does indeed seem to be beyond question: the content of the unpublished part of the Secret does not refer to new years or political upheavals, but to happenings of a religious and intra-Church character, which of their nature are still more grave.@
The complete absence of any reference to a crisis of the faith in the alleged Third Secret text is another telltale sign that the text cannot be genuine. Pope Paul VI, who read the Third Secret, appears to have been alluding to the content of the genuine Third Secret in his Papal addresses:
June 29, 1971: A We are at a moment of a crisis of the faith, a crisis which has repercussions indeed on other domains, on our whole religious, moral and social life.@
THIRD SECRET IS TERRIBLE
On July 11, 1977, Cardinal Albino Luciani, the future John Paul I, celebrated Mass at Sister Lucy= s convent chapel in Portugal. Then, upon Sister Lucy= s request, he conversed with her for almost two hours. He appeared visibly shaken from the conversation. He was later heard to say, A The Secret, it= s terrible.@ Also, the late Fr. Malachi Martin, who had read the Third Secret, said that the Third Secret is your worst nightmare, multiplied exponentially.
U.S. Catholic Church abolishes some dogmas and forms a New ChurchFatima revealed that Portugal will preserve the Catholic faith but the same can not be said for the United States of America. The Sacrament of Marriage has been abolished in the U.S. through the institution of annulments for any frivolous reason especially if you are rich and famous and can contribute large amounts to the Church tribunals making the decisions. Thus, divorce has been instituted in the U.S. Church making a mockery of the indissoluble character of marriage. What God has joined together, let no man put asunder is a statement that our bishops ignore as they make their new church.
The Sacrament of Penance known as Penance or Reconciliation has been abolished in the U.S. Church. If there is no sin why bother to confess? No one goes to Hell so Hell is never mentioned in sermons. All go to Heaven whether or not you are a sinner, Muslim, protestant, Jew, atheist, abortionist politician, Hindu, Buddhist or communist. Catholics are leaving the Church in droves joining fundamentalist churches that stress biblical teachings, fire and brimstone. The Jehovah Witnesses are mostly former Catholics as are many Mormons. Most U.S. Catholic Churches never teach anything to their adult parishioners outside of their parochial school. Sermons are a comment on the Scripture reading of the day and rarely contain any dogma. A priest rarely hears more than six confessions a week in a parish of a few thousand people.
The Ten Commandments are never mentioned in the Church so Catholics have little idea of what is a sin. Catholics are more likely to get an abortion than Protestants and also twice as likely to vote for politicians who support abortion than Protestants. So the failure of the Church to produce good Christians can be laid at the failure of most of its leaders, the bishops. We can see clearly that the Church in the U.S. has failed in its mission overall and infiltrators have made a new Church with a new dogma that all are saved, divorce, altar girls, communion in the hand that mocks Christ in the Eucharist, lay people giving out communion, noise in Church, constant singing of Protestant hymns, no time for prayer. At our Church, the 71 year old priest screams: sing, sing, louder, bring your hymn book to communion. The Mass is one constant sing along from beginning to end. When Mass ends, bedlam ensues as the Priests talk to parishioners in a loud voice not permitting any quiet so that the few who remain may pray. Whatever happened to reverence? Such was the plea made by the former Archbishop Whealon of Hartford. No prayer in Church and the Bishop wonders why there are no vocations. Altar girls discourage boys from becoming clerics as anyone can be an altar server so what is so special. All the lay people giving out communion in the hand makes one wonder what need we have of priests except to consecrate hosts once in a while when the supply diminishes.. Lay people misreading the readings. Confession time for an hour a week at inconvenient time when people are working. Priest ridiculing the Rosary. No more benediction or novenas. Locked churches. Bishops ignoring most Papal directives. Yes, a new Church has been made which uses the name catholic as does the Church of England but in its outward form is not Catholic but pretends to be so that unsuspecting parishioners will keep contributing their money to this new church. You can still be a good Catholic as long as you try to instruct yourself in the faith, frequent the Sacraments, live a good life following the ten commandments and try not to follow modern practices. You should stick to your parish church and be an example of faith and tradition.

Q. Christina, you had a mystical experience of the Eternal Father and the Blessed Trinity according to a published account.
A. I was praying the Stations of the Cross with the meditations out of a prayer book.
While doing the Stations of the Cross, I became totally aware of seeing, with my eyes, a beam of light going up. Then I could see angels, and they were all like little babies. They were whiter than the light they were in. They ascended this beam of light, but they didn= t fly up with their wings, although they had little wings. They seemed to move up the beam of light at will. At the top there was the most enormous area of white light. I= ve never seen anything like it.
Then I saw a man sitting in a big wooden chair. This chair was very broad and powerful-looking. It was a chair of authority. This man who sat in it had white hair. Although he looked old, there wasn= t a line or blemish in his face. He was very beautiful. His face was identical to Jesus= , only Jesus had brown hair and he had white hair, but their faces were identical. When I saw them together, Jesus was on one side and the Blessed Mother was below Jesus on a step. I could see long steps, although they were nearly covered with light. And I remember saying, that is my Eternal Father, that is Jesus His Son, and that= s our Blessed Mother. I thought, where is the Holy Spirit? I then became aware, that very moment, that all of the light I could see was the Holy Spirit. Now during all of this there were clouds, white clouds of light. There were different clouds with angels on each of them. They floated over where the Eternal Father was sitting and Jesus and His Blessed Mother were standing. I could hear millions of little voices mingled together. They were singing, but their singing sounded like music. It was beautiful. It sounded as if children were singing from a distance. I could hear a lot of children singing and their voices were coming across as if on a breeze. It was like a beautiful sound from a distance, but it was softer, like music. I didn= t know what they were singing, but it was so beautiful, all mingled together. It sounded so soft, like the wind itself, yet a beautiful sound came from it
The Irish mystic saw three levels of Purgatory. In each of them, she saw souls imprisoned. She especially shuddered at seeing a lower level of Purgatory, a place she was told was not the lowest. The lowest was called the Chamber of Suffering. It is a place St. Lydwine of Schiedam who died in 1443 saw what appeared to be walled pits in an immense prison of fire. She inquired of her guide, an angel, A Is this then Hell, my brother?@
A No, sister,@ replied the angel, A but this part of Purgatory is bordering on Hell.@
Another of Christina= s experiences of purgatory was being taken through a dismal passageway with a series of doorways on either side leading at the end to a wider door space from which Christina= s soul recoiled, but toward which she was relentlessly impelled. Christina had to stop at each doorway where she experienced the inner agonies being endured by the various souls in these different caverns. The final one was the most horrific. Yet as soon as she surrendered to go there she was instantly consumed in a ball of light.
Like other witnesses to Purgatory, Christina remembers it as a dismal place of A gray ashes and little light,@ with all types of people, even priests, in great distress. Those she saw were in constant torment and hungered to see God. Purgatory even emitted a horrid smell. Christina said, A It was horrible; really, really horrible.@
On Nov. 2, 1992 Christina described: A The souls in Purgatory---I can see them in a sea of gray cloud, reaching up to me and calling me by name saying, A Christina, pray for me, pray for me,@ and reaching up for my Rosary beads. I saw demons playing with fire which they took in their paws and which they threw toward me in my helpless state. It was more painful than when earthly fire burns the flesh. Then after this, an enormous ball of white light came and I was taken into it. Then it was all over.
