Title: Alert: For The Times, Book of Secrets
Frozen in time, are six recent events that blow to smithereens the past posture of the Vatican on Our Lady of Fatima.
Undoubtedly, for the past 3 decades or so, the number two man behind the Pope with power has been the Secretary of State. And, since the era of Casaroli, the actions associated to the Vatican have adjudicated the same stance since the Metz Pact of 1962, namely the story of Fatima the way some people interpret it, should disappear, as the events of 2004-2005 (the Hindu sacrilege and the acts against prayer on Aug. 22) as enumerated in the ebook.
It was as if saying Fatima should not only take a back seat, it should disappear except inside the shrine of Fatima where Pilgrims come and provide some monetary substance to the locals, harsh as that may sound. For the rest of the world, it can jump in the lake. See what the heck happened in 2004-2005.
When Sodano was Secretary of State in 2000, the release of the Third Secret was fashioned in such a sense 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. It is no mistake to point out certain prelates in the Vatican since 2000 hold no mountain of love for Our Blessed Mother.
Yet, in a surprise exclamation by then Pope Benedict XVI, 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 Fatima ...in 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.
Is 9d a repeat of 8a?????
On May 11, 2010, he made stunning exclamations by warning the Third Secret is not just of past events, and, 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 DeCarli made his stunning announcement (see below and also Historical Keypoint 99.) This one hints on the internal affairs of the Vatican. Pope Benedict XVI was in his jet on his way to Fatima for a pilgrimage on May 11, 2010, European time, when he warned in very well chosen words, the greatest persecution against the Catholic Church arises from sins within the Church and not from enemies outside.
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.
In past announcements by the Vatican had the Vatican ever mentioned about crisis involving attacks on the Catholic Church from within? No, not really. The sufferings of the Church is what is announced. Author De Carli also reiterated what Benedict stated, that the Third Secret is not limited to “the past”.
Author Giuseppe De Carli
On May 4, 2010, author Giuseppe De Carli in the famous Ergife Hotel in Rome during the conference titled “The Fatima Challenge,” admitted that the Third Secret is valid today. This may seem small, 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.
For your edification, here is a link to what he actually said, and when. The link was composed of five persons who participated in the 2010 conference in Rome. The original link is now gone and was in English, whereupon before you could click on the third video from the left (top row), and were able to advance to around 31 minutes to what he actually said; if only you would see what I mean. Well, maybe some day, it can be posted back.
Mr. Chris Ferrara explains the circumstances at the conference on May 6, 2010.
Then on May 13, 2010, Pope Benedict before an audience of 500,000 people in Fatima 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 6 of the ebook, when the 3rd Secret was released, Benedict, who was Cardinal Ratzinger, 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, after he made his first declaration that in the end, the Blessed Virgin would be triumphant (in 2009) what was formerly stated that the Third Secret of Fatima as all 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. With 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.
Rev. Enzo Bianchi
About 6 years ago, something unusual took place that leaves one to wonder what is going on. Pope Francis I named an anti-Fatima heretic monk Enzo Bianchi as Consultor of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity in July of 2013. Bianchi 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” 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”.
