History and a Historian

Title: Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets

     Hollywood star and Legend, Humphrey Bogart, star from movies such as Casablanca, The Roaring Twenties, The Maltese Falcon, and Key Largo, played Jean Matrac, escapee of Devil’s Island, who in the final scene of Warner Brothers’ Passage To Marseille, never made it alive after his air squadron made it back to WW II England. 

     But, he left a little letter to his son, his last words read at his funeral, of together they will walk someday, in a better world, where we will “walk hand in hand.  We walk and we look; some of the things we see are wonderful, and some are terrible.  On a green stretch of ground, of 10,000 graves and you feel hatred welling up in your heart, this was, that it will never be again. The world has been cured since your father treated the terrible abyss on it’s body….

     “There are millions of healers who worked with him to make sure there is no recurrence. That deadly conflict was waged to decide your future…you are the heir of what your father and your friends won for with their blood.  From their hands, you have received the flag of happiness and freedom. My son, be the standard bearer of the great age they have made possible. It would be too tragic if the men of good will should ever be laxed or fail again to build a world where youth may love without fear, or where parents may grow old with their children….May God keep you in love as I do.”

      The present world has lapsed into a mysterious, nebulous void, where history is lost and ideals such as presented in the above and a great vision of the future are things from another planet.  Within this commentary, are things associated with Fatima.  Is there a missing text?  Is there a message?  No there is.  Yes there is. No great mystery is unveiled; actions are symbolic, actions are hidden; actions this, actions that.  What is a poor historian to do? 

      While actions are met by counteractions, history proceeds along, and I remember when I first started this book, I asked myself why I was given the urge to write this book, and the compulsions to include the persons, things and events that make up my chapters.  It was so strange.   My bag of knowledge was composed of World War Two history, with the lucky sense of being able to be at the right place at the right time when it came to pull out historical facts.  I possess no agenda and no connections with any political sphere.

       All I know is that I like history, love to share history with my fellow man and woman, and enjoy the nature of putting it all together so that my readers may come to a better understanding.  This book was a challenge because I wasn’t sure which changes nor how big my portfolio of information was going to be. 

      The very nature of this book is about the varied things that connect to you, the nature of the recent climate cycle, or Sister Lucia, Fulda, and the theme of the immediate future.  As earthlings, we repose in nature, but as part of a new millennium, we feel resolved to undertake changes which can circumvent the normal fear we have when we read about Fatima, remote viewing and prophecies.  Fatima is indeed a touchy subject if you go beyond the bounds of what is normally understood.  It is, or should I say was, surrounded by a cloak of mystery.  I am no Rhodes Scholar, scientist or famous best selling author, only a humble historian—fastidously, so when it comes to history, developing a path that can help better understand history—developing a path that runs between the past and the momentous future.  

     In May of 2009, Pope Benedict XVI exclaimed, “You promised the three children of the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. May it be so!” 

      The following year, two more exclamations of fact were thrust on the world, taking many people by surprise.  

       For the past 4 decades or so, it should be again noted, the actions associated to the Vatican were thrust more by what the Secretary of State wanted, and since the late 1990s, certain higher-ups held no mountain of love for Our Blessed Mother.   Then came the mini-bomb shell in 2009, and then followed a greater explosion:

     On May 11, 2010, Pope Benedict XVI, conducted a small tug of war outside Vatican confines when he made further stunning exclamations by warning the Third Secret is not just of past events, he also stated, the greatest persecution against the Catholic Church arises from sins within the Church and not from enemies outside. 

     This flashed less than a week after author and noted spokesman De Carli made his stunning announcement (see LINK and also Historical Keypoint 213.)  All this hints on internal affairs of the Vatican but of which occurred outside the Vatican.

    When Sodano was Secretary of State in 2000, the release of the Third Secret was fashioned in such a manner that anyone with half a brain could figure out something was not right; in fact, it is full of generalities and incompleteness as shown by the author’s research.   

     Yet, in a surprise exclamation by then Pope Benedict XVI (above), a small tug of war within Vatican confines began to leak out, starting with his exclamation on May 13, 2009, when he said, “You promised the three children of the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. May it be so!” 

     The following year, another two exclamations of fact were thrust on the world, taking more people by surprise.  


        Pope Benedict XVI was in his jet on his way to Fatima for a pilgrimage on May 11, 2010, European time.  He chose his warning in very well chosen words, about the persecution against the Catholic Church. 

       He was speaking calmly to reporters in a jet airliner, saying the “attacks on the Pope and the Church do not come only from outside, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from within the Church, from sins that exist in the Church.” That is not exactly nice.  He added, “This has always been known, but today we see it in a really terrifying way: that the greatest persecution of the Church does not come from enemies outside, but arises from sin in the Church.”  

       According to the National Catholic Reporter, May 11, 2010 issue by correspondent John Allen, the Pope had been submitted questions ahead of the flight by reporters, several days in advance, hence the Pope had plenty of time to ponder what he would answer.   The Pope’s session with the press lasted about 15 minutes, with items hovering between sexual abuse and the presence of secularism.  Pope Benedict also spoke about the presence of faith in Fatima, where from the little ones a new force of the faith was born.   A theme totally opposite of Pope John XXIII who spoke often of the little children of Fatima in derisive tones.  

      “The faith is not limited to the little ones,” Pope Benedict XVI had also said.   The message he stated, “illuminates this history,” a history for the whole world and all epochs of history.

       Author De Carli also reiterated, as found in this book, what Pope Benedict stated, that the Third Secret is not limited to “the past”. 


Author Giuseppe De Carli

     From May 3 to May 7, a conference titled “The Fatima Challenge,” was held at the famous Ergife Palace Hotel in Rome.  Many bishops, priests and lay people from throughout the world filled the conference room.  On May 4, 2010, author Giuseppe De Carli, a man who in the past was in charge of TV coverage of Pope Benedict's talks and travels for the Italian national TV network, took time from his busy schedule to address the conference.  He admitted several things during the conference which were covered elsewhere in this book.  Of all his statements, I feel the following that he stated is important: that the Third Secret is valid today.  

      This may seem trifle, but by saying that, as author, or should I say co-author with Sec. of State Bertone, he stressed something in a non-trivial way.   For until then, if you study the history of Fatima and what numerous Vatican sources were saying, Fatima was something to be dustpanned away.

     However, the acknowledgment by De Carli suggested the Third part of the Secret, like all of the Fatima story, is not to be relegated to the last century to disappear into a microcosm of only prayer and down and out of history.  There used to be a link on the internet of what he actually said in a cool audio, but that has since disappeared.  Perhaps, someday it can be posted back.  There is this this two minute link explaining a few circumstances at the conference on May 6, 2010 by Mr. Chris Ferrara. 

      Following this, Pope Benedict made another intense exclamation, when before an audience of 500,000 people in Fatima, he stated, “One would be deceiving himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.”  He said this during a most solemn occasion, during the homily of the Mass at the Fatima Shrine.

      There was little doubt left when he stated one would deceive himself, namely individuals who espoused that the Fatima mission is fulfilled.  Whether a prophetic mission entails plural events, one of them chiefly being the assassination attempt on a Pope “dressed in white”, another being the consecration of Russia or, only an event meaning the assassination enumerated in the Fatima vision module released on June 26, 2000, he strongly hinted it is not over.
      Again, it must be reminded, the Vatican curia in the recent past took special care to show, or should we say by virtue of careful omittance, the making of a mockery of relevant data concerning the release of the Third Secret that it was mainly a vision which pertained to John Paul II.   But now, that was not true. One must remember, as stated in chapter 7 of the ebook, when the 3rd Secret was released, Benedict, who was Cardinal Ratzinger, had in his commentary regarding the June 2000 release, explicitly stated that “we must affirm with Cardinal Sodano...” that the pronouncements related to the Third Secret refer to past history.  


     However, as Pope Benedict he made his first declaration that in the end, the Blessed Virgin would be triumphant (in 2009).  The word would denotes the future. This seemed to contradict what was formerly stated that the Third Secret of Fatima was for the past, well, was now, thrown out the window.   He who thought so was engaged in self-deception, pronounced Benedict.   

     “May the seven years which separate us from the centenary of the apparitions hasten the fulfillment of the prophecy of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity”.  

     It is curiously funny that after the Pope made his homily statement, the Vatican tried to change a bit of the words by saying he had said: “We would be mistaken to think that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.”  Being in a state of self-deception is not like a little oops, mistake.  

     That is a big difference.  

     From the May 13, 2010 revelation, the prophetic mission of Fatima, or the foretelling of future events, is not finished, according to Pope Benedict XVI, and anyone thinking so would be engaged in self-deception.

Fr Gruner Sept 9, 2013.png

     Fr Gruner on September 9, 2013, addresses the “Fatima: The Path to Peace Conference”.  He was a learned prelate who always spoke about Our Lady of Fatima positively, and oftentimes provided assessments on the Communist Party and Masonry, a bit beyond the scope of this book.   Ever since 1917, when Leon Trotsky left America that year and sailed for Russia with 300 select men and $25 million in hidden real gold  (in today’s currency would be worth $2 BILLION) who IMPORTED the powers of international Freemasonry into Russia, the convoluting errors of Russia has spread.  An interesting book to read is one written by Rev. Denis Fahey CSSP, The Rulers of Russia, Today! that documents the story of the Communist Party, a 96-page book from 1938 that names names. 


Do a google, you can still find it.


Rev. Enzo  Bianchi

     Now, for two tidbits of disconcerting information regarding the importance of Fatima.  About 8 years ago, something unusual took place that leaves one to wonder what is going on. Pope Francis named an anti-Fatima heretic monk Enzo Bianchi as Consultor of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity in July of 2014.   Bianchi (above) thinks the Mother of Jesus is “not a suitable model for the promotion of women in the Church.”  He twists the importance of Our Lady as a “stupid idea.” And, he pronounced Our Lady of Fatima’s apparitions a “swindle” to again use his words, in the sense that a God “who talks about the persecuted Christians, but forgets the six million Jews annihilated in Germany (during WW II) is not a credible God.” He denounced Fatima as an expression of  “a God of Catholic racism”.

     Tidbit number two takes us back to 2004-2005
