- Cardinal Capovilla served as the Secretary to Pope John XXIII from 1958 to 1963, known also to be one of the few in the world to have read the Fatima 3rd secret, said in 1997, Providing an insight to its actual contents, he responded that it concerned “an extraordinary event,” a “manifestation of the supernatural. His quote can be read below, the rest within his quote does not matter, we all know what Ewtn thinks about the Fatima 3rd secret :
2. To a question regarding the Warning some saying the Warning may be a natural phenomenon but will be used by God to speak to mankind, is this true ?
Conchita replied : The Warning is something supernatural and will not be explained by science.
3. Father Malachi Martin has told us that he has read the Third Secret — he announced that on the Art Bell radio program, which we have on audio tape. In addition, in answer to a number of questions, Father Malachi Martin stated that Our Lady came to Garabandal, Spain, because the Third Secret was not released in 1960 as She had requested. As a result, Our Lady appeared in 1961 — one year after the Vatican failed to release the Third Secret — and She basically released the Secret to the four children at Garabandal, or at least within the message of Garabandal. And the most striking thing of all in that message is “many Cardinals, bishops and priests are going to hell and dragging many souls with them” and that a great chastisement awaits mankind because of the sins of this time.
One of the most essential — as well as very striking — parts of what Our Lady is reported to have said in Her message of Garabandal is “to the Eucharist is being given less and less importance.” She also said “many Cardinals, bishops and priests are on the road to hell and that they are dragging many souls with them”. That, of course, ties in with Pope John Paul II in effect telling us on May 13, 2000 that one-third of the Catholic clergy are working for the devil, and that ties in with the Pope telling us on May 13, 1982 that the dogma of the Faith is being undermined from within the Catholic Church. Father Malachi Martin has said that the message of Garabandal is what the Third Secret is about. Although the reported apparitions of Our Lady at Garabandal have not been approved by the Church, the Bishop of Garabandal — that is, the Bishop of Santander, Spain — officially published in July 1965 that the message of Garabandal is not contrary to the Faith. And, of course, it ties in with the Church-approved message of La Salette which predicted that Rome would lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.
4. Father Combe to the former Bishop of Fatima :
« Sister Lucia asked you to Visit Conchita in New York »
Father Combe : On July 5 of the last year, I was at Fatima with an important group of Piligrims as a spiritual guide. While there, I asked to be received by the former Bishop of Leira (Bishop of Fatima). He agreed, at 8.30 Pm, I was received and we met together, just the two of us, for three quarters of an hour. I knew that this Bishop who often saw Sr Lucia, not now but sometime ago, had been asked to go and see Conchita twice.
I had met the Bishop in 1961, Here are the main points of what we discussed.
The first thing I said was :
« This is the second time I have seen you. The first was in 1961 »
I reminded him of our encounter. At that time he had given me a Piligrim Virgin Statue of our Lady of Fatima which eventually landed in my Church at Chazay d’Azergues. Then I said
« The second time I saw you was on a photo in the home of a lady Sr LUCIA ASKED YOU TO VISIT WHO LIVES VERY FAR FROM HERE – CONCHITA IN NEW YORK. »
5. Conclusion :
So, According to Cardinal Capovilla about the Fatima 3rd secret, it concerns (among other) “an extraordinary event,” a “manifestation of the supernatural, let’s read again :
An extraordinary event, a manifestion of the Supernatural, in other words and probably The Warning (what else ?) which is itself an extraordinary event and something also supernatural according to the Garabandal seer as well, a manifestation of the supernatural which will not be explained by Science. This explains why Father Malachi Martin has said that the message of Garabandal is what the Third Secret is about and why Sister Lucia, herself advised Bishop Venancio, the Bishop of Fatima to visit Conchita, the main Garabandal seer in New York twice, why a Bishop of Fatima will travel to the other Part of the world to visit someone he does not even know, especially someone linked to a Marian Apparition not yet approved by the Church, if he was not told that the messages of Garabandal as its prophecies were also what the 3rd secret is about, so let’s not be also surprised knowing that Conchita has and since years a second home precisely in Fatima as well.
If someone did in fact leak info to you from the Commission, that was very irresponsible of them. Shame on them. You should not have accepted information that is under Vatican embargo.
Thanks Basto for this beautiful testimony, I will try to find out if our Lady appeared as our Lady of Mount Carmel in Garabandal only or somewhere else ?
I was just on the face book page for Medjugorje…
CARDINAL: MEDJUGORJE IS BEING SOUGHT UNDERMINED
It is “unacceptable” when the Pope’s recent statement on seers is being interpreted as his final ruling on Medjugorje, says Cardinal Vinko Puljic of Sarajevo. He thinks certain media misinterpret Pope Francis in order to undermine the good relations between the Pope and Medjugorje pilgrims.
Again…purposeful misinterpretation of the Pope’s words to tip the scales in the wrong direction.
some leaks from the commission have been given to me few weeks ago as below :
1. The CDF has not recognized the apparitions as supernatural
2. Medjugorje will be recognized as a Place of Prayer
3. Medjugorje will not be recognized as a Marian Sanctuary
4. The seers of Medjugorje, all of them, have refused to disclose the so call “10 Secrets” to the CDF
5. The seers will be forbidden to divulge any new message with the risk of excommunication
6. Pope Francis will confirm the conclusion of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF)
7. The Medjugorje commission formed by Pope Benedict has been also able to get the bank account statements of the seers, their refusal to divulge the so call “10 Secrets” has not been well received according to some.
I suggest to anyone to follow the commission Conclusion, if these leaks are confirmed, which I think so, no place for Medjugorje on this blog anymore, thank you.
We should come back to the faith that these people had in your video. This is beautiful. We must get the word out in the towns and Churches. The young people today don’t even know what Fatima is; nor Medjugorje, nor Garabandal, nor Akita, nor the Bayside apparitions.. The Church has suppressed apparitions of Our Blessed Mother and Jesus, since 1917, although both have come many times since then, to help us.
New Age Christians whom I speak with, won’t even talk about the Blessed Virgin Mary because they think she is evil… they won’t look at a video or youtube about Our Blessed Mother.
It makes me angry, what Satan has done in the name of Jesus.
Please say the rosary daily,
– “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 of the Roses, September 7, 1978
-“. . . You are truly in the days of the Apocalypse. Read the Revelations, My children, and know what lies ahead. . . . ” – Our Lady of the Roses, August 21, 1975
-Our Blessed Mother also appeared in Medjugorje and told Ivan, that Satan was allowed to infiltrate the Church and Vatican for 100 years. This started with Fatima 1913. She has now appeared in Medjugorje to tell her people to come back to the Church, because the period of Satan in the Church has ended. But, she warns us that Satan couldn’t destroy the Church of her Son from within, so he will now attempt to destroy it from without.
-Next: Our Blessed mother gave the third secret to Lucia. In 1958-59 Sister Lucia was gravely ill and her Bishop encouraged her to write down the third secret. She did. the Bishop said that it was only one sheet of paper and the envelope was thin. He could read through part of it. He gave the envelope to Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) who held it for a time. Subsequently, Sister Lucia died in about 1959 and was substituted with an impostor nun. (Pictures of both nuns can be seen on the internet, and it is obvious that they are not the same person.) This was so diabolical that people cannot understand what happened.
-The secret was given to three of the Popes, only to be tucked away for the future.
-There ended up being two envelopes, one white and one orange and by then the letters were totally polluted. The impostor sister Lucia confirmed what was written, but when it was photographed, we could see that it was not in Sister Lucia’s handwriting..
-I believe that Pope Benedict XVI was found out… and had other things going on at the time that were not of God, (and which I won’t get into) and he was forced to resign.
I believe that Pope Francis renews the Catholic Church in it’s pure state. He cleaned house and got rid of the gay lobbyists from the Vatican for starters, telling them that they had no place in the Vatican. Then he demoted those Cardinals and Bishops, who twisted his words in translation on his first statements on ‘marriage’ in the Church. The gay lobbyists had their hand in that one. But, in his second correction statement, he said:
(CNSNews.com) – Pope Francis reasserted the Catholic Church’s teaching on marriage on Monday, stressing the “complementarity” between man and woman – the two complete each other – and adding that “children have a right to grow up in a family with a father and a mother. . . . .The “complementarity of man and woman” is a “root of marriage and family,” said Pope Francis. “Do not fall into the trap of being swayed by political notion. . . . ”
Thank you for reading, and please continue to say the rosary,
Exactly 98 years ago from today was like this:
“It must have been 1:30 p.m when there arose, at the exact spot where the children were, a column of smoke, thin, fine and bluish, which extended up to perhaps two meters above their heads, and evaporated at that height. This phenomenon, perfectly visible to the naked eye, lasted for a few seconds. Not having noted how long it had lasted, I cannot say whether it was more or less than a minute. The smoke dissipated abruptly, and after some time, it came back to occur a second time, then a third time.
“The sky, which had been overcast all day, suddenly cleared; the rain stopped and it looked as if the sun were about to fill with light the countryside that the wintery morning had made so gloomy. I was looking at the spot of the apparitions in a serene, if cold, expectation of something happening and with diminishing curiosity because a long time had passed without anything to excite my attention. The sun, a few moments before, had broken through the thick layer of clouds which hid it and now shone clearly and intensely.
“Suddenly I heard the uproar of thousands of voices, and I saw the whole multitude spread out in that vast space at my feet…turn their backs to that spot where, until then, all their expectations had been focused, and look at the sun on the other side. I turned around, too, toward the point commanding their gaze and I could see the sun, like a very clear disc, with its sharp edge, which gleamed without hurting the sight. It could not be confused with the sun seen through a fog (there was no fog at that moment), for it was neither veiled nor dim. At Fatima, it kept its light and heat, and stood out clearly in the sky, with a sharp edge, like a large gaming table. The most astonishing thing was to be able to stare at the solar disc for a long time, brilliant with light and heat, without hurting the eyes or damaging the retina. [During this time], the sun’s disc did not remain immobile, it had a giddy motion, [but] not like the twinkling of a star in all its brilliance for it spun round upon itself in a mad whirl.
“During the solar phenomenon, which I have just described, there were also changes of color in the atmosphere. Looking at the sun, I noticed that everything was becoming darkened. I looked first at the nearest objects and then extended my glance further afield as far as the horizon. I saw everything had assumed an amethyst color. Objects around me, the sky and the atmosphere, were of the same color. Everything both near and far had changed, taking on the color of old yellow damask. People looked as if they were suffering from jaundice and I recall a sensation of amusement at seeing them look so ugly and unattractive. My own hand was the same color.
“Then, suddenly, one heard a clamor, a cry of anguish breaking from all the people. The sun, whirling wildly, seemed all at once to loosen itself from the firmament and, blood red, advance threateningly upon the earth as if to crush us with its huge and fiery weight. The sensation during those moments was truly terrible.
“All the phenomena which I have described were observed by me in a calm and serene state of mind without any emotional disturbance. It is for others to interpret and explain them. Finally, I must declare that never, before or after October 13 , have I observed similar atmospheric or solar phenomena.”
Dr. José Almeida Garrett, Professor from the University of Coimbra (eye witness of the miracle)
“(…) and I saw Our Lady once more, this time resembling Our Lady of Mount Carmel.”
Lúcia dos Santos (from sister Lucy’s 4th memoir)
That was the very last vision that Lucy had in Fatima at 1917, just after the miracle of the sun. That’s the best link between Fatima and Garabandal.
