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 itbelievers and unbelievers. And now announce in My name.
Great chastisement to come
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.
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.
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, 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.
