Manuel Gonçalves Cerejeira, Patriarch of Lisbon.
The Salvation of the World has been placed in the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Cardinal Cerejeira was in Brazil, where the Marian Congress of Campinas took place.
From the two parts of the Secret already revealed — the third part has not been made known, but it has been written and placed in a sealed envelope and will be opened in 1960 — we know enough to enable us to conclude that the salvation of the world, in this extraordinary moment of history, has been placed by God in the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The Fatima Apparition was for Portugal like the Rainbow after the Flood
I note first of all the fact — for which we can never give enough thanks — of the peace, freedom, and renewal of the Church in Portugal… Those who half a century ago applied the axe of persecution to the old tree in whose shadow all those who believed, hoped and loved took refuge, will never understand how the old, stripped-down trunk grew green once more, was covered with branches, flowers and fruits, and shelters its own children anew. I will add that we ourselves do not understand very well. One cannot speak about this wonderful renewal without bringing up at the beginning the miracle of Fatima in 1917. Indeed the apparition of Our Lady of Fatima was for Portugal like the rainbow which, according to the biblical account, appeared in the sky after the flood: a new era of peace was going to begin.
