The Message of Our Lady and Our Lord to Veronica of the Cross


 Jacinta told Mother Godinho the famous Third Secret
A momentous Fatima breakthrough

October 3, 1991
Feast of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus

          Early this afternoon at 12:12 p.m., as Veronica lay on her living room couch resting from her debilitating health problems that have plagued her for years, St. Theresa the Little Flower suddenly appeared to her.

          The popular French Carmelite nun, who was declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church in 1925, and whose feast day is traditionally celebrated today, revealed only her face to Veronica. She was bathed in a brilliant light, with a youthful, contented, yet serious appearance about her.

          "Honor the salutation at all times: Glory be to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

          "The peoples of the earth have not progressed satisfactorily in the plan for the salvation of their souls. Prayer, penance, atonement we ask of all. The time grows short.

          "All honor and glory must be given to the Trinity. Hasten, harken, and listen, for I shall not repeat this call again."

          Theresa of Lisieux

St. Theresa then proceeded to reveal a great secret to Veronica.


Third Secret: Satan entered Church diagram
          A simple illustration showing the tremendous import of the Third Secret of Fatima. Lucifer and his cohorts, 666, executed a masterstroke when they penetrated and then possessed cardinals from the highest levels in Rome. Surrounded then by many evil agents, the Pope's power and influence is virtually negated.
          Because of the nature and government of the Church, Lucifer is able to implement and set in motion his plan of destruction. His deceptive measures, cunning ways, and subtleties are filtered down through the ranks and throughout the universal Church causing confusion and discouragement with many and a false sense of progress and enlightenment with others.
          In the name of peace, love, and brotherhood, faith and morals are questioned, compromised, and even rejected. And much of this under the appearance of the Pope's approval and blessing.
          Our Lord on August 15, 1971: "Satan has done his work of folly well. 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."


          Now as we are in the latter days, when many things hidden are to be revealed, St. Theresa has made known through Veronica an astonishing revelation: little Jacinta actually confided the famous Third Secret of Fatima to Mother Godinho, a pious lady who was caring for her during her final illness. Mother Godinho was instructed by Jacinta to pass a message on to a certain priest designated by Our Lady, but tragically failed in the mission entrusted to her for reasons disclosed by St. Theresa to Veronica. (Actually, Veronica is not permitted to release all that St. Theresa revealed to her, but the report below represents a significant portion.)

          Two nights later, restless and unable to sleep, Veronica was pondering the startling facts which St. Theresa had brought to light, when she was inspired to seek out Brother Michael of the Holy Trinity's monumental and authoritative work on Fatima, The Whole Truth About Fatima.


Volume II contains a detailed account of the little seer's painful illness and her death. Much of the information that follows is taken from this source.

          In Appendix II of Chapter IV is the text of a message given to Canon Manuel Formigao by Mother Godinho at Jacinta's request. Canon Formigao was Jacinta's confessor, a very holy priest, and he believed wholeheartedly in the apparitions.

          Appendix III lists what the author calls an "apocryphal message," one which he and other Fatima experts believe may not be authentic. It is in the form of a letter sent by Mother Godinho to Pope Pius XII in 1954. The letter does exist, and was actually sent to the Holy Father, but Brother Michael in his commentary lists several reasons for doubting the truth of the message.


The clarification given by St. Theresa sheds new light on both of these messages from Mother Godinho, and shows that instead of two separate messages, there was really only one message and it was to have been given in its entirety to Canon Formigao, who would then pass it on to the Holy Father.

          Maria of the Purification Godinho was the directress and foundress--hence referred to as Mother--of the orphanage of Our Lady of Miracles in Lisbon, where Jacinta stayed for some time during her final illness prior to entering the hospital for surgery. Mother Godinho had gathered a community of women around her who lived as religious but without the habit and without official recognition.


She had hoped to found an order of nuns, a dream she clung to with tenacity all her life, despite the fact that her bishop repeatedly refused to grant her the necessary authorization. Apparently, he felt that despite her obvious good intentions, she did not possess the qualities needed to carry out such an undertaking.

          Shortly before her death, Jacinta had asked repeatedly that Canon Formigao be called to her bedside, explaining that Our Lady had appeared to her and given a message to be related to him. Unfortunately, the good priest was unable to come at once, and arrived a few days after her death.

          Meanwhile, Jacinta, knowing she was to die, gave the message to Mother Godinho, asking her to relate it to the Canon.

          Upon the arrival of Canon Formigao, Mother Godinho met with him and repeated to him the first part of little Jacinta's message. It concerned a chastisement predicted for Portugal, especially the city of Lisbon, in punishment for the sins and crimes committed in that country.

          As Mother Godinho later testified, Jacinta explained that the prophecy of the Blessed Mother was conditional: "If there were souls who would do penance and make reparation for the offenses done to God, and works of reparation were instituted to make satisfaction for crimes, the chastisement would be prevented."


How these words must have rung in her ears, and fueled her burning ambition to found a religious order! There would be no problem with Mother Godinho in relaying the first part, as it fit neatly into her plans. However, the remaining part of the message would be a different story. She kept that part as her own secret, seeking all the while her bishop's approval.

          Finally, in 1954, at the age of seventy-six, she wrote to the Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, daring to present her proposed order of Franciscan nuns as the express wish of the Blessed Virgin Mary, tailoring the remainder of the secret message to fit her dreams.

          The first two paragraphs of her letter were devoted to an ardent appeal to the Holy Father for the authorization she so anxiously sought. When we omit all of the many references to herself and her proposed religious order, what remains--from what we have learned now--is a distorted message undoubtedly mingled with truths, but definitely devoid of the heart of the Third Secret.


We know that the little seers of Fatima were subjected to all sorts of ridicule and disbelief, as well as endless questioning from the authorities. Mother Godinho realized this and knew that to make public all of the very startling message Our Lady gave to Jacinta might make her the object of similar scrutiny, jeopardizing her goal of founding an order of nuns. Therefore, according to St. Theresa, she omitted the most crucial part of the message.

          We all know that the famous Third Secret of Fatima was supposed to be publicly revealed in 1960, but to this day lies buried in the Vatican archives. Unknown until now is the fact that it was also buried in the ground in 1960 when Mother Godinho went to her grave!

          Yes, according to the revelation of St. Theresa, the Third Secret was an integral part of the final message Our Lady gave to Jacinta for Canon Formigao. Knowing she would die soon, Jacinta revealed it to Mother Godinho to pass on to Canon Formigao.

          Mother Godinho was only an intermediary; the message was not intended for her at all. However, grasping at a chance to further her own ambitions, she gave the good priest only the part concerning Portugal and kept the rest to herself.


For Our Lady once more revealed to Jacinta, shortly before her death in February 1920, what is really the essence of the Third Secret of Fatima: that 666, satan, the forces of antichrist, would enter the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome beginning in the year 1972!

          Given human weakness and Mother Godinho's obsession, it would seem that this prediction of an event which was unlikely to be fulfilled in her lifetime actually served to increase her delusion. Of course, she never did get her religious order.

          Our Lady told Veronica that for this infidelity Mother Godinho suffered in purgatory for eight years, until the year 1968.


Now we know from Our Lady's messages that beginning in 1972, Pope Paul VI was kept a virtual prisoner in the Vatican. Some ecclesiastics in the highest positions of the hierarchy, being infiltrators or having fallen from grace, drugged the good Pope, censored his mail, forged his documents, and finally staged an impostor to complete their sinister plan.

          Pope Paul himself gave the world an indication of this terrible situation on June 29, 1972, when he said: "From some fissure the smoke of satan entered into the Temple of God." Though it was generally unknown at the time, he truly had much to suffer. 

          While Fatima watchers were waiting to see a great catastrophe in the world in the year 1972, as predicted in Mother Godinho's letter, Pope Paul was beginning his silent, heroic martyrdom as he watched Jesus' beloved Church being demolished from within.


It is precisely a horrible situation like this that underscores the importance and necessity of prayer and more prayer for cardinals, bishops, and clergy of all ranks. And so it is since September 1972--not coincidentally--we have conducted a Holy Hour for priests every Sunday.

          In conclusion, one can only wonder what the scenario would be today if only Mother Godinho had followed through correctly. Would the Third Secret have been publicly released by now? Would this knowledge have thwarted or at least hampered the evil designs of those who sought to destroy the Church--a Church which today lies in shambles? Would the Second Vatican Council have been even considered, much less convened? Or if it were, with a different agenda?

St Theresa, October 7, 1991 1 PM
     "You shall carry this Secret, unveiled now, to all the world. It is not by chance that you were given this Mission.

     "Remember Action Saints' Renewal
Veronica was directed to make an exclamation point using a bishop's mitre and a ball.

Jesus of the Trinity, October 8,1991 3:10 PM
     "You have received now the facts in truth. Give this message to the world. It is already late for the redemption of mankind. Only those who carry the Banner of Faithful and True shall be saved!
     "Will you be counted in the few?!
     "Prayer, penance, and atonement we ask of you!"

   Artistic drawing of message inside Jacinta 1972

Instant Polaroid photo taken of Shrine statue on September 14, 1971, in which Jacinta from Heaven miraculously--during development--writes "Jacinta 1972." After snapping the photo, Robert F. stated that as he awaited development, he heard a snap, a crack, and then felt like his fingers that were holding the picture had been hit by an electrical current.
          For additional information on the "Jacinta" photo, see our miraculous photo library.
          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 counter clock-wise to the left) is formed by the tail of the "a" and the number "2. " It was God's will that this most important message be made known, and so be-cause Mother Godinho failed to divulge it, Jacinta had to come and reveal it herself.



Following are a few excerpts from the messages of Bayside which shed a bright light from Heaven on this cataclysmic situation in the Church:

Jesus: "Now this, My child, will bring much consternation from the clergy. Look upward, My child, and tell the world what you see."

Veronica: I see the picture of "Jacinta 1972."

Jesus: "And what is in this picture, My child? Repeat."

Veronica: I see the letters very heavily penciled over by Jacinta when she wrote this message. It says-one part of the message-- there are five parts to the "Jacinta 1972" picture, but one part says: "A-C INTO, I-N-T-0, mitres 1972."

Jesus: "Repeat that well, My child."

Veronica: "Antichrist into mitres 1972."
October 2,1989


"I gave you the picture. I wrote on your picture. I did not know how to write much on earth, but I wrote. Our Father showed me how to write. Won't you give everyone my picture? I want them to remember what I tried to tell them."
Jacinta, Feb. 1, 1973


"You will stand behind your Vicar. The agents of hell surround him."
Our Lady, May 30, 1973


"Jacinta has been forgotten. They have buried My message as they will try to bury My message here on these sacred grounds."
Our Lady, July 25, 1974


"The Third Secret, My child, is that satan would enter into My Son's Church."
Our Lady, May 13, 1978


"Pray for your bishops. Pray for your priests. Obedience has now been distorted even to cover sin. . . . Michael was cast out, and now satan has free reign to roam."
Our Lady, May 13, 1978


"Satan and his agents, the band of 666, has entered into the highest places of the hierarchy and therefore he has captured some of Our formerly noble hierarchy to do his bidding."
Our Lady, June 1, 1978


"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."
Our Lady, Sept 7, 1978


"In the Holy City of Rome, many Red Hats have now be-come the Judases in the hierarchy. As men of the cross they have now won for themselves the title of 'evil men of the cross.' "
Our Lady, Sept. 13, 1978


"Awaken from your slumber, clergy in My Son's Church, for you will also be counted among the least. In pride and arrogance you have refused My counsel from Heaven. You have turned away from Me. You have persecuted those I have sent to you."
Our Lady, June 18, 1981
