This article is on the Third Secret - As we all know - The Vatican "revealed" it to us in the year 2000. Many speculate that this was not it at least in its entirety. Even Mother Angelica stated that there must be more.
Pope John XXIII was suppose to reveal it in 1960 but did not - He stated that it may never be revealed. Therefore - it must be pretty terrible. Some speculate that since Our Lady wanted it revealed in 1960 and Lucia said it would then be more understood at that time, that it must pertain to the troubles in the Church since the Second Vatican Council. No one can deny the great loss of faith, vocations, seminaries, convents, churches all over the world - priests, sisters - faithful!
Below is taken from the writings of the late Professor Plinio Correa de Oliviera. Some food for thought and I hope it is helpful - God bless!
"In 1917 Our Lady could have told Lucy to reveal the secret at that time. But she did not, because this would have damaged the Church. So, in the secret is something that was harmful to the good then, and is harmful to the evil today. What would that be?
A probable answer to this question could be the decadence that has entered the Catholic Hierarchy today as a chastisement of mankind. If this situation would have been revealed in 1917, it would have caused scandal and countless apostasies. But if it were revealed now, it could certainly damage Progressivism.
Imagine if this were the secret:
“My children, in the near future a time will come when a weakened and disoriented Communism will lose its influence over public opinion, but it will be supported and re-installed by the Pope, Cardinals, countless Bishops, priests, and religious men and women. You must resist them! To fight for the Papacy and the Hierarchy is to fight against the bad orientation they are giving the Church.”
This could be the secret.
Isn’t it true that this could produce an extremely healthy reaction among Catholics and in Russia that could change the situation? I certainly think so.
A mystery shrouds the Fatima secret
...... I think the enemies could very well invent a false secret. The only guarantee we have for this not to happen is Sr. Lucia's witness. (We must add here to his writing that we now have speculation that an imposter Lucia was put in place to support the Second Vatican II changes - See "Tradition In Action" website about two Lucias)
In one of his famous dreams, St. John Bosco saw the enemy entering the Vatican; the Pope, followed by a multitude of Bishops, priests, religious men and women were leaving the Vatican, immersed in a cloud of smoke that became increasingly dense. The Pope was acting like a mad man in the dense fog of smoke. Then, an Angel appeared and spoke to the Pope, advising him to fight against the invading enemy. The Pope followed the counsel and returned to the Vatican. The smoke disappeared, and the enemy was defeated.
One is induced to ask if this dream has a symbolic sense. Does it represent a Pope who abandons the Catholic cause, and the Church that enters a period of confusion and obscurity?
The question is: Is the secret of Fatima related to such a situation? If it is, then instead of a policy of flight and conciliation, shouldn’t the Vatican adopt a strategy of a strong fight against the enemies of the Church who are within?
You can see how the dream of St. John Bosco and the secret of Fatima may be harmoniously linked.
I end these comments on the mystery of Fatima by suggesting that you pray to Our Lady to find a way to reveal her secret." Professor Plinio Correa de Oliviera
