3rd Secret of Fatima • Apparitions of the Virgin Mary
 
 

Sent to Kennedy, MacMillan and Krushchev
The German magazine Neus Europa published the following extract of the Third Secret (below) in their October 1963 issue. Cardinal Ottovanni, the Vatican Secretary of State, has endorsed its release. It had been released through diplomatic channels by Pope Paul VI, and had been sent to President Kennedy, Prime Minister MacMillan of Great Britain, and Mr. Khruschev (The Vatican has never denied the authenticity of this document).

The Third Secret
The Mother of God revealed a special message to Lucia, on October 13, 1917, following the Miracle of the Sun, at the Cova da Iria in Fatima, which states in particular:

“Do not be troubled, dear child. I am the Mother of God speaking to you and begging you to proclaim in My name the following message to the entire world.

“In doing so, you will meet with strong opposition. But be strong in faith and you will triumph over all opposition. Listen carefully and remember what I tell you: the good people must become better. They must implore God to forgive the sins they have committed and will in the future commit. You ask me for a sign so all may comprehend the words which I am addressing to mankind through you. You have just beheld that miracle of the sun. Everybody saw it—believers and unbelievers. And now announce in My name.

Great chastisement to come
A great chastisement will come over all mankind; not today or tomorrow, but in the

 

second half of the twentieth century. What I had already announced at LaSalette through the children Melanie and Maximin, I repeat to you now. Humanity has not developed as God desired. Mankind has been sacrilegious and has trampled underfoot the gifts of God.

Highest positions in the Church
“No longer does order reign anywhere.
Even in the highest places Satan reigns and directs the course of events. Satan will succeed in infiltrating into the highest positions in the Church. Satan will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of scientists who will design weapons that can destroy great portions of mankind in a few minutes. Satan will gain hold of heads of nations and will cause these destructive weapons to be mass-produced.

“If mankind will not oppose these evils, I will be obliged to let fall My Son's arm. If the chief rulers of the world and of the Church will not actively oppose these evils, I will ask God My Father to visit His Justice upon mankind. Then will God punish mankind even more severely and harshly than He did at the time of the great Deluge. The great and powerful will perish along with the lowly and weak.

Cardinals will oppose Cardinals
“A time of very severe trial is also coming for the Church. Cardinals will oppose Cardinals and Bishops will oppose Bishops. Satan will enter into their very midst. In Rome also, there will occur great changes. What is rotten will fall, and what falls must not be retained. The Church will be obscured, and all the world will be thrown into great confusion.

 

The Great War
“The great, great war will come in the second half of the twentieth century. Fire and smoke will fall from heaven, and the waters of the ocean will turn to steam, throwing their foam to the very sky. Whatever is standing will be overturned.
Millions of people will die. Those surviving will envy the dead. Distress, misery and desolation will be found the world over.

The good will die with the wicked
“The time is drawing near, and the abyss is ever deepening. There will be no escape: the good will die with the wicked, the great with the lowly, the princes of the Church with the faithful, the rulers of the nations with their people. Death will reign everywhere, raised to triumph by erring men, the helpers of Satan who will be the masters of the earth. These evils will come at a time when no one expects it: nevertheless it must come as punishment and revenge in accordance with God's plan.

“The age of ages is coming, the end of all ends if mankind will not repent and be converted, and if this conversion does not come from rulers of the world and of the Church. Woe and greater woe to mankind if conversion does not occur.

Those who survive
“Later, however, those who survive those trials, if they will repent and will call upon God in submission to His Will and become true followers of Jesus Christ, My Son, I will gather them and become their intercessor. But woe and more woe if that conversion does not occur.
Go, My child, and announce it; I will assist you.”
