Heart of Third Secret Missing

June 29, 2000

Dear disciple of the latter days,

On Monday, June 26 the Vatican issued the Third Secret of Fatima and other related documents. After diligent research, careful study of the documentation, and consultation with other Fatima authorities, not surprisingly, we arrived at the sad but inevitable conclusion that this could not be the whole and entire Third Secret written by Sister Lucy on January 3, 1944—perhaps in part, but plainly the heart, the essence, of the Secret is missing:

"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)

"Satan, Lucifer in human form, entered into Rome in the year 1972."
(Our Lady, September 7, 1978)

Indeed, there is something rotten in Denmark—er—Rome.  This Vatican debacle proves precisely the very Third Secret as frequently given by Heaven through the years to Veronica of the Cross (June 18, 1986).

In these Apocalyptic times when even the elect are deceived (Matt. 24:24), expecting the Vatican hierarchy to release the authentic Third Secret is as likely as a gallon of gas going down to a dollar.  It’s not going to happen. Lucifer does not want to expose himself: “His greatest armor is to be not believed in. His greatest defense is that you do not know he is there; for then, like the invisible agent of hell he is, he can then wreak havoc among you” (Jesus, August 14, 1979).

Please understand this is no reflection on our good Pope who above all wanted its public release, and who is presently “under the domination of his bishops and cardinals” (Jesus, October 2, 1989).  Undoubtedly, that is why Our Lady wanted Lucy to “come forward and tell the Third Secret word for word” (June 18, 1986).

It seems the Vatican version of the Third Secret has produced in many of the Catholic faithful nothing but bewilderment, suspicion, more questions and even scorn, sure signs of—not the Holy Spirit—but a diabolical influence and certainly effects contrary to the characteristics of the first two secrets which were marked by their clarity and directness.

Being brief at this time, we will not detail all the questions and objections we have.  However, for example, where are the words of Our Lady of Fatima that follow Sister Lucy’s statement, “In Portugal, the dogma of faith shall always be preserved, etc.”?  Why did the Vatican say in 1960 that “the words of Our Lady” would not be released if the Third Secret contains no words of Our Lady but only a vision?  Also, they claim that the consecration of the world in 1984 fulfilled the request of Our Lady of Fatima, that Sister Lucy confirmed this, and that “any further discussion or request is without basis.”  On the contrary, Jesus said on June 17, 1989: “Go forward and besiege, if necessary, the Holy Father and the bishops with a request for this consecration of Russia. We do not mean the world, My children, We mean Russia!”

For more information and facts, an excellent outside source would be the trilogy, The Whole Truth About Fatima, by Brother Michael of the Holy Trinity.   In 1991, Veronica of the Cross was inspired by Heaven to consult this authoritative work on Fatima.

Further indicative of satan’s penetration into the Holy City of God is the day after the release of the Third Secret, Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Russian president, who, Jesus said, was “a two-legged demon” (June 17, 1989), was a guest at a Vatican news conference with Secretary of State Angelo Cardinal Sodano.  Gorbachev recently stated that he remains an avowed Leninist and the Gorbachev Foundation promotes worldwide abortion and contraception.

Gorbachev and Cardinal Sodano were endorsing the memoirs of the late Agostino Cardinal Casaroli, former Secretary of State.  You may recall that Casaroli was mentioned by Our Lady as one of the triumvirate at the Vatican where they laid low Pope Paul VI and replaced him with an impostor pope (September 27, 1975).  Casaroli’s book defends the passive relations between the Holy See and the communist regimes in Eastern Europe from 1963 -1989, a tragic consequence of the Vatican-Moscow agreement that Our Lady asked to “be rescinded” (July 1, 1985).

The long-suffering Pope Paul VI hit a bulls-eye when he said on October 13, 1977: “The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world.  The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church even to its summit.  Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.”  And again on June 29, 1972 with his famous admission: “From some fissure the smoke of satan entered into the temple of God.”  It was this Holy Father who Jacinta of Fatima saw in vision being abused by people who were stoning and cursing him (Our Lady, June 1, 1978)

And so, to this day we continue in all kinds of weather to pray the Sunday Holy Hour for priests that Our Lady requested on September 14, 1972: “This hour will be for your Vicar and the fallen hierarchy in the House of God.”  We pray, too, that St. Michael, “the greatest Warrior of Heaven” (Jesus, June 9, 1979), may be restored to his rightful place so he may vanquish the infernal forces that have left the Church “a shambles” (Our Lady, March 18, 1983).

We’ll be commenting again on this shortly, especially as this story develops and new truths and facts unfold.  Please keep posted to our website:

As you well know, this Mission is not for the faint-hearted.  And so, we pray to Mary, Queen of the saints, that under the glorious title of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers, graces of strength and forbearance will be given to you as a disciple of the latter days (Jesus, October 2, 1989).

May God bless you through our courageous mentor, Veronica of the Cross,

Michael Mangan

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.
