  The Third Secret remains a Secret
  by David Martin
"The Third Secret is that satan would enter into My Son's Church."
Our Lady, May 13, 1978

           In a recent interview, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former papal nuncio to the United States has publicly expressed his belief that the Vatican to date has not published the full Third Secret of Fatima.
         Speaking to Dies Irae, a Portuguese website, Archbishop Viganò recently said, "The third part of the message that Our Lady entrusted to the shepherds of Fatima, so that they could deliver it to the Holy Father, remains a secret today."
         To recap briefly, the Blessed Virgin appeared to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal on July 13, 1917, and disclosed to them a Secret consisting of three parts, the first two of which have been released by the Church. However, the third part, commonly known as the Third Secret, was to remain a secret until 1960, at which time it was to be publicly disclosed.

         Unfortunately, the Third Secret was not released in 1960 because a number of Vatican cardinals pressured Pope John XXIII into keeping it hidden. Concerning this, Archbishop Viganò says in his interview: "With this departure from the Queen of Heaven's message, a cover-up operation was initiated, evidently because the content of the message would reveal the terrible conspiracy of her enemies against the Church of Christ."
         Consider now this excerpt from Our Lady’s message at Bayside concerning the cover-up:
  "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 to the onslaught of satan into My Son's House? No one!”  
  Our Lady, Dec. 31, 1977  
"From some fissure the smoke of satan entered into the temple of God."
Pope Paul VI
June 29, 1972
           Unfortunately, this cover-up reached alarming heights in June 2000. Pope John Paul II had attempted to release the Third Secret on June 26, 2000, but then his archenemy Cardinal Sodano--who many times had insulted and blasted John Paul in the press--hijacked the project and turned it into a master cover-up job.

         What the Vatican released in June 2000 was not the Third Secret of Fatima but a vision given to Sister Lucy in conjunction with the Third Secret. The vision is a symbolic picture of the Church being put to death by its enemies. After giving the vision to Lucy, Our Lady explained in a few words the meaning of the vision. This verbal explanation by the Blessed Virgin--written out in one page of text of approximately 25 lines--is the Third Secret of Fatima.
         On May 13, 1978, Our Lady at Bayside gave us the gist of the Fatima Third Secret.
  "My child, 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  
             Pope Paul VI had echoed this very point on June 29, 1972, when he declared to the world: "From some fissure the smoke of satan entered into the temple of God."
         The pope on that occasion was speaking on the turbulent aftermath of Vatican II and how it had turned out to be a disaster because “the devil” had come along “to suffocate” the Council. He was confessing that Vatican II was this fissure through which satan entered the Church.
    A Bad Council  
             More than once it has surfaced that the Third Secret of Fatima spoke of a bad council and a bad Mass. This was reported by The Fatima Crusader in May 2009 and again by One Peter Five in May 2016. According to the first report, Cardinal Ratzinger in 1990 had told his friend Fr. Ingo Dollinger--a long-time friend and spiritual child of St. Padre Pio--that Our Lady in the Third Secret warned not to change the liturgy.
         Upon the supposed publication of the Third Secret by the Vatican in June 2000, Fr. Dollinger noted that it did not contain those elements that Cardinal Ratzinger had revealed to him ten years earlier, whereupon he confronted the cardinal about this. Not knowing quite what to say he blurted out to Dollinger in German, “Wirklich gebt das der etwas,” which signifies that “really there is something more there.” Ratzinger, who had read the Third Secret, was confessing that there is more to the Secret than what was released in June 2000, all but confirming that it did warn about not changing the liturgy as he had previously told Dollinger.

         Consider now the prediction of the nineteenth century Freemason Canon Roca, who said that “the liturgy of the Roman Church will shortly undergo a transformation at an ecumenical council … to deprive the Church of its supernatural character.” This certainly seems to gel with the prediction of “a bad council and a bad Mass.”
         Among the instructions that accompanied this “bad council” was the September 26, 1964, Vatican II Instruction on the Liturgy, Inter Oecumenici, which outlined the new ruling for the Mass and sanctuary. Section 91 says: "The main altar should preferably be freestanding, to permit walking around it and celebration facing the people."

         This unprecedented change was calculated to bring about a shift of focus where the emphasis is on the community. What has resulted is a heightened regard for the world and a distorted view of holy doctrine.
         According to first-hand witnesses who were present at Vatican II, a number of progressives hijacked the Council during the opening session. At the center of this coup d’etat were Cardinals Alfrink, Frings, and Liénart of the Rhine Alliance. Their objective was to gain control of the conciliar drafting commissions. A crucial vote was to be taken to determine the members of the commissions when Cardinal Liénart, a suspected Freemason, seized the microphone during a speech and demanded that the slate of 168 candidates be discarded and that a new slate of candidates be drawn up. His uncanny gesture was heeded by the Council and the election was postponed. Liénart’s action deflected the course of the Council and was hailed a victory in the press. The date was October 13, 1962, the 45th Anniversary of Our Lady’s last apparition at Fatima. (Fr. Ralph Wiltgen, The Rhine Flows into the Tiber)
         Consider now this excerpt from the Bayside message.
  "On that date, as promised at Fatima, satan entered My Church upon earth. He brought with him his agents. And satan himself, the deceiver of all mankind, sat in on Vatican II and maneuvered all the outsiders to come in and distort My doctrines and distort the truth."  
  Jesus, June 18, 1986  
             In this message, Jesus made it clear that what He had just revealed was the heart of Third Secret. He added, “You will speak out for Me and My Mother and the Eternal Father in the Holy Spirit; you will speak out and say that satan is in the Church, My Church upon earth.”  
    Latter Day Apostasy  
             Among those who have read and commented on the Third Secret, we find a common thread in that it concerned the great apostasy of the last times and how this satanic infiltration of heresy would begin at the highest levels of the Church and filter down through the hierarchical ranks.
         Cardinal Mario Ciappi, who read the Third Secret and who was personal papal theologian to Popes John XXIII, Paul VI, and John Paul II, told a Professor Baumgartner of Salzburg: "In the Third Secret it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top."
         Our Lady at Bayside accentuated and shed light on this point, when She said:
  "He [satan] knows that his time is growing short. His plan, My children--and listen well--is to capture the ruling body within My Son's Church."  
  Our Lady, April 10, 1976  
             The Third Secret warned that Satan would capture bishops and cardinals at the highest levels of the Church and would use them to misguide the Church. Under the illusion of divine guidance, the wide body of the church would be led by temptation. Only a remnant of faithful priests and laity--those dedicated to Mary and Tradition--would remain faithful to the promptings of the Holy Spirit while the church at large would plunder to its own destruction. The devil would manage to sow disobedience into the Church through obedience to errant priests so that those who remained obedient to Christ would be marginalized and sent out of the Church.
         This indeed has come to pass. Since Vatican II we have seen the formation of a new church of man that is not the Church that Christ left us. Rules, regulations, dogma, and tradition have been cast aside while modernists have opened the doors of the Church and made it a meeting place for heretics, schismatics, and unbelievers. Like the idolaters of the Old Testament, we have seen the proponents of a so-called charismatic renewal running after strange gods and spirits that our forefathers knew not.

         Worse yet, a number of Vatican cardinals along with Pope Francis offered incense to the pagan idol Pachamama during a pagan ceremony dedicated to the idol. This occurred during the historic Amazonian Synod that convened in Rome Oct. 6-27.
         This Abomination of Desolation committed in Rome is the culmination of fifty years of change that was generated by Satan. According to a number of noteworthy Catholics including former EWTN president Dan Burke, our modern-day sins against the Faith--e.g. Communion in the hand, the use of lay Eucharistic ministers, contemporary “guitar Mass,” interfaith worship, ecumenism, socializing in church, allowing women on the altar, bowing to Pachamama, appointing homosexuals to clerical positions--are what have brought the recent COVID-19 plague upon the Church and the world.
         According to Bishop Athanasius Schneider, the Eucharist has been trampled underfoot for the past fifty years through the pestilent practice of Communion in the hand. Is it any wonder that we have been punished with the plague?
    The Significance of 1960  
             Hence we can understand the significance of 1960 as the appointed year for disclosing the Third Secret, since it was only two years later that they would convene the Second Vatican Council, setting into motion this insidious departure from tradition that would leave the Holy City "half in ruins." Our Lady was attempting to avert this disaster to the Church.
         One ray of hope we have is that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI could disclose the Third Secret of Fatima before his death, since this would confirm to all that the post-conciliar "reform" wasn’t the work of God after all. This would vindicate restorationists and motivate the Church Militant to come forward with more vigor to fight these changes.
         In the meantime, we have the consolation and light of Our Lady’s message to carry us through these dark times. She has repeated time and again that those who take Her on Her word and follow her counsel will be protected and cared for in the coming days and will be saved.
  "I bless all My children with graces, graces for cures and graces for conversion. All who hear My words, they are words of encouragement and perseverance; they are words of confidence, for Jesus, My Son, will be your confidence."  
  Our Lady, May 14, 1977
