History and a Historian

     How history can be found

     There came to me a small window of opportunities during my early years of research, and it involved a man who had read the Third Secret of Fatima and knew about Garabandal. 

      The life of Rev. Malachy Martin has come to me in bits and pieces.  Some of the tidbits of information were a result of interviews with Bernard Janzen or his dialogues with radio host Art Bell, and my luck to be able to record what was said on Coast To Coast AM.  That’s over twenty years ago.  In my discovery while researching Fatima and Garabandal, which required diligent research and at times a bit of detective work, I was able to garner information that helped me put things in some order because of some of these radio recordings made.  

     The order is complex.  At that time, I was not even sure why I was doing the recordings by radio.  It seemed interesting to me at that time, and nothing more.   But, I believe it was worthwhile, although at the time, it did not even seem logical.  There were times when something hits you out of the blue and an idea or connection was in the offering.    One such time occurred in 2006. 

      I had the privilege to hear live Art Bell interview Rev. Malachy Martin several times.

Let us first start with a radio recording I made on March 5, 2006  that I would like to share with you, in which Art interviews a good friend of Rev. Martin (2mins 52 sec).  The following historical information is divided into 5 clips.  The friend is a former surgeon, graduate of Harvard, turned to a priest in 1997, Rev. Rama Coomaraswamy. 

      I had no idea what I was to hear, and it is stunning.  Clip #1.  Clip #2.

     The next clip revolves around the story that Rev. Martin was knocked down. Note, not pushed down the stairs.  Clip #3: Art interviewed Kathleen Keating.  This revealed interview occurred before Art Bell interviewed Rev. Coomaraswamy. Incidentally, I have in my possession over 1000 audio cassettes, some concern other topics like sono-luminance or the weather; it will come suddenly, "like a thief in the night."  But as the Book says, "know not when, for it will come suddenly, like a thief in the night."  Only the fools say there is no God.

     Here again is the voice of Rev. Coomaraswamy ( 1min39 sec) who makes an impressive yet enfolding anecdote about how Malachy Martin got to read the 3rd Secret.

Book of the Apocalypse? We are talking about an event of some 60 years ago.  The Pope was Pope John XXIII and the time the Third Secret was read in secret some 60 years ago.  As newly elected Pope, Pope from Oct. 28, 1958-June 3, 1963, John XXIII on August 17, 1959 opened an envelope written by Sister Lucia, ahead of instructions entrusted by her to open it in 1960.  Inside the enclosed room, he allowed his most trusted Cardinals to see it. Jesuit Cardinal Augustin Bea, former personal confessor to Pope Pius XII but did not become Cardinal until Dec. 14, 1959, was one of them.  Outside the room was Malachy Martin. If this was the date in 1959 that Rob Morro was told by Malachy that he was asked to wait outside, Malachy heard loud debates from inside; among them were also Ottaviani, Secretary of the Holy Office, Bacci, Lercaro, Monsignor Philippe, Monsignor Capovilla, Belgium Suenens, who advocated for modernization of the garb of Catholic nuns and ordination of married men as deacons, beside Bea. They argued for the next 45 minutes to an hour.  When the doors opened, Cardinal Bea rushed out and in an angry tone told Malachy, “Kommen Sie,” in German, come with me.  According to Morro, inside a waiting car downstairs is when Bea passed to Malachy to read the 3rd secret, only after he made an oath not to reveal it.


Tracing information as to when Fr, Malachi Martin was given the contents of the Third Secret to read is both difficult and easy.  Also, which version of the Secret was he handed?  From our investigations, there are two parts to the 3rd Secret, and whether he was given one in 1959 or both is not certain, but it is without a doubt, he was before he was passed on the Secret made to swear an oath of secrecy, which to his last days was kept.  He never revealed it to anyone.  From the words of both Rev. Rama Coomaraswamy and his friend Robb Morro, the secret was passed to him in a car.  That is easy to assert, but there is a discrepancy as to the date.  According to Rob Morro, as told by Malachi to him, it was 1959 when he was passed on the Secret from Cardinal Bea.  From the interview from Coomaraswamy, Malachy was in the car when he was passed the Secret, but not from Bea but from JohnXXIII.  Whether he had meant given to Bea from the Pope then Malachy or, whether it was an entirely different vehicle and timeframe, one cannot be certain.  Was everything  just from 1959, and involved only 1 version?  Or, were there two times Malachy Martin got to read the Third Secret, one in 1959 and one version, and another time involving another time, another car, and perhaps the other version?  In any event, the timeframe is from 1959-1960, when the whole world was awaiting the release of the Third Secret by the Pope.  It was never released or published to the Public in 1960, and neither was the Consecration exacted as requested.  This 2023, it is worthwhile to note that Robb Morro, whom knew first-hand Rev. Malachi Martin, will be publishing a new book with the working title Malachi Martin, Setting The Record Straight.   It will shatter various myths about Malachi Martin.  He also released a biographical documentary on exorcism called Hostage To The Devil.  Check them out.  The following link is included for the historical value that it contains about both Robb Morro and John-Henry Weston, who interviewed him on April 18, 2023.
