Controversy and the Third Secret

While many people appear to be content that the full text of the Third Secret of Fatima was released by the Vatican on June 26, 2000, a growing number of Catholics worldwide — including such notable people as Mother Angelica (founder of EWTN); acclaimed Catholic Italian journalist and television personality Antonio Socci (one of Italy’s most respected Catholic intellectuals as well as a personal acquaintance of Cardinal Bertone and the former Cardinal Ratzinger); and former papal nuncio to the U.S, Archbishop Pietro Sambi — have become convinced that something is missing and are challenging this official version.

Even the secular Washington Post expressed its doubts about the official Vatican interpretation of the Third Secret when it ran the story, “Third Secret Spurs More Questions: Fatima Interpretation Departs from Vision,” in its July 1, 2000 edition.

There is every reason to believe that the Vatican is hiding a text of the Third Secret — the words of Our Lady which would explain how the Pope in the vision comes to be executed by soldiers outside a ruined city filled with corpses — which, when revealed in full, has the power to bring about the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

And so the effort to have the full text of the Third Secret of Fatima released continues to this day. Below are suggested links for further reading.
