Fatima. Third Secret. About. John Paul II, Pope
“… the sea and the waves roaring …”
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Isa 13:10. Eze 32:7. Joel 2:31. Joel 3:15. Amos 5:20. Amos 8:9. Zech 1:15. Matt 24:29. Mark 13:24.
26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Dan 7:10. Mark 13:26.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Rome 8:23.
“… if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth …”
The Holy Father was asked, "What about the Third Secret of Fatima? Should it not have already been published by 1960?"
Pope John Paul II replied: "Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves.
“On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired.”
The Pope continued: “Many wish to know simply from curiosity and a taste for the sensational, but they forget that knowledge also implies responsibility. They only seek the satisfaction of their curiosity, and that is dangerous if at the same time they are not disposed to do something, and if they are convinced that it is impossible to do anything against evil.”
At this point the Pope grasped a Rosary and said: “Here is the remedy against this evil. Pray, pray, and ask for nothing more. Leave everything else to the Mother of God.”
The Holy Father was then asked: "What is going to happen to the Church?"
He answered: “We must prepare ourselves to suffer great trials before long, such as will demand of us a disposition to give up even life, and a total dedication to Christ and for Christ … With your and my prayer it is possible to mitigate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only thus can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church sprung from blood! This time, too, it will not be otherwise. We must be strong and prepared, and trust in Christ and His Mother, and be very, very assiduous in praying the Rosary.”
“Supposing I was to tell you that … one huge block of the American continent would be washed away … ”
Supposing I was to tell you that there would be three days of darkness… and if I told you that one whole nation would be wiped out overnight, If I told you that one huge block of the American continent would be washed away, and if I told you of an earthquake in such and such…
Besides there is one other factor. There are 2 elements in the letter, which, if they got into the hands of America's enemies, would be strategically useful.
“ … the Third Secret was no longer a secret, because it had already been revealed many times.”
He received this reply from Oddi: “The Holy Father replied that he had done everything he could for Fatima and did not consider it necessary to intervene any more, since the Third Secret was no longer a secret, because it had already been revealed many times.”
