The Heart of the Third Secret of Fatima

"From some fissure the smoke of Satan
entered into the temple of God."

Pope Paul VI, June 29, 1972
On the occasion of the ninth anniversary of His Coronation


Satan entered into the Church hierarchy -- infiltration

Because of the nature and government of the Church, Lucifer's accomplishment is deadly, virtually neutralizing the papacy. Satan's deceptive measures, cunning ways, and subtleties are then filtered down unchecked through the ranks and ultimately throughout the universal Church.


During World War I, beginning on May 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared at Fatima, Portugal, on the 13th day of six successive months to three shepherd children, Jacinta and Francesco Marto, and Lucia (Lucy) dos Santos. The apparition was officially declared authentic by the Roman Catholic Church on October 13, 1930.

The seers of Fatima

On July 13, Our Lady delivered to the children a great secret comprised of three distinct parts, the first two of which were released by the Church in 1941.

However, it is the third part, commonly referred to as the Third Secret of Fatima, which has long been the subject of great intLucy, a Carmelite nun residing in Coimbra, Portugal, was visited by Our Lady on January 2, 1944. The Virgin said that the Bishop's command to Lucy to write down the text of the Third Secret was indeed the will of God, and that the grace and light would be given to the anguished nun to perform the difficult task.

Sister Lucy understood that the contents were to be read and disclosed to the world by the hierarchy (of Portugal or Rome) no later that 1960, or upon her death, whichever came first. Not surprisingly, it would be 1960 that Sister Lucy would be officially silenced on this matter.

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, the Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in an interview with an Italian journalist in August 1984, acknowledged reading the Third Secret, explaining that it contains "the dangers threatening the Faith and the life of the Christian, and therefore the world. And also the importance of the last times."

In hindsight, we can see clearly the significance of the 1960 deadline. Just 2 years later the Second Vatican Council would be convened, setting in full motion an insidious revolution and departure from tradition unmatched in the history of the Church.

And leading up to what we now know through the message of Our Lady of the Roses is the heart of the Third Secret and the tragic consequences of our grave omission: namely, that satan himself would enter into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome in 1972. This demonic master stroke would entrench the change, turmoil and self-destruction that characterizes the post-conciliar Church and world.

The excerpts below are culled from the vast compilation of messages (over 300) given by Heaven to the world in these latter days.  They indicate the proper conduct and perception we should have as Roman Catholics--and that Heaven demands.

Temporary secret
"I gave Lucy the Revelation as a temporary secret--as I revealed to you on two occasions.  Make a concerted effort to bring its entirety to Our children on earth.   The hierarchy have not listened to My counsel--thirty-two years lost in indecision and fear of exposure.  The Faith is shattered for many."
Our Lady, April 29, 1992

Lucifer's tour de force
"They converse of the secret that I gave at Fatima. It is a simple explanation. It could not be fully revealed because of the drastic nature of My message. How I warned and warned that satan would enter into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome.  The Third Secret, My child, is that satan would enter into My Son's Church."
Our Lady, May 13, 1978

Should have been revealed
Veronica: And the fact that it [the Third Secret] was kept hidden has brought about so much chaos in the world and the Church today.  It should never have remained hidden, Our Lady said.
March 31, 1980

"These men and women of satan, known as communists . . . have been allowed to enter . . . into My Son's Church upon earth.
       "Yes, My child, I want you to let the world know that Our seminaries were not pure.  Many had entered for this very day to try to destroy the Faith and the Church of My Son."
Our Lady, May 17, 1986

Heaven's Triumph
"Yes, satan has gone into the highest positions in My House, but he will not triumph. In the final count the victory will be with Us, for he will only proceed as My Father deems."
Jesus, August 15, 1971

Prayers for clergy
"Many cardinals, the Red Hats, have fallen, and they now mislead many of the Purple Hats, the bishops. . . .
       "Pray for your bishops, your cardinals.  Pray for your priests."
Our Lady, April 1, 1978

"It will be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal."
Jesus, June 1, 1978

Pride in the Hierarchy
"I counseled you at Fatima, and who gave My counsel to the world?  Pride and arrogance anew!  A secret was to be revealed, and who counseled and prepared the world for the onslaught of satan into My Son's House?  No one!"
Our Lady, December 31, 1977

St. Michael ousted
"Satan was allowed to enter. Man chose to take Michael, the guardian of Faith, from My House; and the doors then swung wide open to admit the prince of darkness and his realm of corruption and evil."
Jesus, September 28, 1977

Not enough prayer
"You will understand, My child, why satan has entered My Son's home on earth, the Church.  Because there was not enough prayer.  Man talks, idly talks of worldly matters, when he should concentrate on the spiritual."
Our Lady, December 28, 1974

Lucy come forward
"I wish at this time, My children, to repeat again the need to write, to speak, to meet with the Holy Father in Rome, and plead with him to have Lucy come forward and tell the Third Secret word for word."
Our Lady, June 18, 1986

"Satan, Lucifer in human form, entered into Rome in the year 1972.  He cut off the rule, the role of the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI.  Lucifer has controlled Rome and continues this control now.*
       "And I tell you now, My children, unless you pray and make My counsel known to all of the ruling fathers of the Eternal City of Rome, My Son's Church, His House, will be forced into the catacombs.  A great struggle lies ahead for mankind.  The eventual outcome is for good of all, for this trial in My Son's Church will be a true proving ground for all the faithful.  Many latter-day saints shall rise out of the tribulation."
Our Lady, September 7, 1978

*It should be understood that Our Lady is merely expressing the horrid consequence of satan's presence in the Vatican: the Holy Father is not a free agent and cannot do as he wills. Thus, we take serious Heaven's frequent exhortation to earnest prayer for the papacy and for the now reigning Vicar of Christ, John Paul II. Nevertheless, Our Lord's promise to be with His Church until the end remains intact. For despite this current debacle, Christ has preserved for the faithful the validity of the sacraments.

Also, an illustration to aid you in following the message of Jesus as repeated below. The bold letters state "a-c" "i-n-t-o." The mitre (turn counterclockwise) is formed by the tail of the "o" and the number "2."

Antichrist bishops
"Now this, My child, will bring much consternation from the clergy...."

       Veronica: I see the picture of Jacinta 1972. . . .  But one part says:

       "A-C INTO, I-N-T-0, mitres 1972. . . .  Anti-Christ into mitres 1972."
Jesus, October 2, 1989

"Because you did not prepare for satan, whom I warned you years of earth's time before would enter into My Son's Church to do battle with His clergy--you did not prepare and guard yourselves for this onslaught.
       "And now, what are the fruits of your labors: a loss of vocations, My children losing the knowledge of their Faith, all manner of sin, perversion and abominations being committed upon earth."
Our Lady, August 4, 1979

One aim
"The institution itself, as set up by Me, remains to be true. . . .  Satan has entered now with his armies in full regalia, appearing as humans.  However, they are demons in disguise, and they have one ultimate aim: to try to destroy My Church, the Roman Catholic Church, with the Seat of Peter as the head."
Jesus, March 18, 1989

Highest league
"Yes, My child, even with Vatican II, it started out with the best resolves, but then satan took over the scene.  And with his agents he reached into the highest professions, the highest league of the hierarchy, until it saddens Me to say that many priests now are on the road to perdition and taking many others with them."
Jesus, July 25, 1985

"The plan of . . . communism is to overthrow the rule in the Eternal City, gain control in politics in a manner to control the world.  They seek to overthrow Rome, these agents of hell and atheism, My child; they seek to overthrow Rome and gain control of the power of the House of My Son throughout the world.  They will subvert it from within."
Our Lady, October 6, 1976

*It was with good reason that Our Lady specifically asked in the second part of the secret for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. Precisely because Her request has not been obeyed to date, Russia is perpetrating one of the cruelest hoaxes in history (i.e. the so-called failure and death of communism with the replacement of a free and democratic government) with its objective remaining, as always, the same: communist enslavement of the world

The Virgin Mary appears in America

This beautiful story of grace, peace and redemption opened publicly on June 18, 1970 when the Mother of God visited Veronica Lueken on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside, New York and later at the Vatican Pavilion site (blessed by Pope Paul VI) in Flushing Meadows Park, New York. Beginning in 1968, St. Theresa the Little Flower prepared Veronica for these Heavenly apparitions.

For 25 years, the Virgin Mary and Her Divine Son would appear to this mother of five children during Rosary Vigils on these sacred grounds until her passing in 1995. Our Lady asked that this Shrine be called “Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers” and that a Sunday Holy Hour offered for the Pope and priests be held.

Over 300 comprehensive messages packed with wisdom and guidance for these latter days were transmitted through this seer named by Heaven, Veronica of the Cross.

Our Lady of the Roses Shrine is under the stewardship of the lay Order of St. Michael (est. 1977), a vibrant community of dedicated, celibate men who have been appointed by Heaven to lead this global mission. Our Lady has prophesied that this lay Order will bring forth the full-fledged religious Order of St. Michael, an order founded on tradition, which will also include a cloistered convent.

Our Lady has also stated that curative waters will erupt and a magnificent basilica will be erected at the original site of St. Robert’s.

The Vigils and Holy Hours continue to this day at the Vatican Pavilion inspired by Our Lord’s promise: “We have made Our home upon these grounds.” Cures and conversions abound and for countless pilgrims, faith and hope have been restored. We invite you to join us.
