Third Secret. Third Secret of Fatima
The Third Secret of Fatima is the final (third)
part of the Secret of Fatima entrusted by the Mother of God to three shepherd children on July 13, 1917. This part is a continuation of the words of the Mother of God:
“In Portugal, the dogma of faith will always be preserved, etc. …”,
as given in Lucia's Fourth
The content of the Third Secret remains in question. On the one hand, the Vatican claims that the text of the vision of the wrath of God and the murder of believers led by the Pope, which was published by the Vatican on June 26, 2000, recorded by Lucia, is the complete Third Secret of Fatima. On the other hand, independent researchers are finding more and more arguments in favor of the fact that this vision cannot be the full Third Secret, but only a part.
In the letter to the Pope written in 1982 Sister Lucy explains that “we have not seen yet the final fulfilment of this prophecy” (of the Third Secret), but that “we are going there little by little with big steps”? This letter has been written in 1982, i.e. one year after the assassination attempt on the Pope John Paul II (which took place on Wednesday, 13 May 1981, in St. Peter's Square at Vatican City). Therefore, the Third Secret is not about an attempted assassination of the Pope.
