Bertone-not a great response

  • That's absolutely crazy. Look, are you claiming that the prophecy of Fatima is about the apostasy of the Church of Rome? That Fatima is a prediction of Rome's transformation into the throne of the Antichrist? Despite the love Our Lady has for the pope and the popes for Our Lady? ...Anyone can write books based on conspiracy theories, on biased interpretations. Anybody can take sentences out of context and present them as clues to some supposed plot to avoid divulging the truth and to transmit it in a code that only the initiates can understand. No, the whole theory you allude to is a fabrication. And this supposedly factual account [...], is actually the sort of device the Masons used to invent to discredit the Church. I'm surprised that journalists and writers who claim to be Catholic let themselves be taken in."

    Sorry Belloc, but I don't understand your post.  Are you discussing the book?  It seems to me like I've walked into the middle of a conversation and missed the beginning.  Could you clarify what your post is about?  I've read many books about Fatima, but passed on the one you mentioned in your post.  One of the reasons for not reading it was a search around the net didn't find many good reviews about Bertone's book.  I'm currently reading, The Fatima Priest, by Francis Alban and Christopher Ferrara.  It's about Fr. Nicholas Gruner and his apostolate to get a pope and all the bishops of the world to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The purchase of the book is the best $2.50 I've spent in a long time.
