Some "former" novus ordo catholic said they based their faith on fatima, and said something about "UFO people" getting their hands on the "original testimony" of the children, and something about the children being coached, and something about the lady they saw was "wearing a short dress and earrings." :confused1: :confused1: :confused1:
Sounded really nutty to me. Proceeded to prove he was totally a victim of insipid modernity, and that he has no faith at all.
I reiterated the same thing to him though, "Well, it's private revelation, you don't have to believe it to be a Catholic."
I don't know why people would base the entire foundation of their faith on a visible sign that they weren't there to see. I mean, Christ was here, and we believe, and that's more miraculous than Our Lady (and I'm sure she would agree) appearing at Fatima.
I would point to Malachi Martin (deceased in 1999) and ask you to listen to what he had to say about the secret. If you go on YouTube, you can hear his interviews by Art Bell (yeah I know, the UFO guy, but he has multiple interviews with Father Martin, including one about demonic possession, that is quite valuable, and the one on Fatima.) He personally was allowed to read it, and explained that the message "wasn't meant for the pope. It was meant for the people!" Sadly, his silence followed him to the grave. He did answer questions about it though, he just couldn't read or say verbatim what the prophecy was, only could answer questions (of course, and be unable to lie) about whether they were relevant to the secret or not. I bet he was dying to tell what it said, and wished people would ask him more specific questions.
I think you'll find a lot of what the message contains if you listen to what he's said on the matter. Incidentally, at the end of his life, he was writing a book called: "Primacy:How the Institutionalized Roman Catholic Church Became a Creature of the New World Order." Not kidding, that was the title of the book.
He coined the term "FACTion," as opposed to "Fiction." A few of the more popular novels he wrote were written as fiction, but were based completely on fact. He said that 90% of "Windswept House" was completely true, one of his very controversial books, and one of the last (if not the last one) works that was published of his.
I would strongly question anything pertaining to Fatima coming out of the Vatican.
First, (and as Malachi Martin affirmed) "John XXIII" claimed the children were lying, and that they didn't know what they were talking about, and that they were "prophets of gloom,' in the opening statement of "vatican II."
Second, the secret was supposed to be revealed, contrary to the popular myth "NO LATER than 1960."
Third, the stuff pertaining to Fatima coming from the vatican, stinks of a cover-up. The secret "meant for the people!" as said by Sister Lucy herself back when she originally wrote it down in the 1930's, was not given to the people, indicative that whatever happened in the secret already was going on, and that probably the culprits mentioned in the secret were in power and had control of said secret.
Lastly, and I think the most damning, was the fact that Sister Lucy was murdered (IMO) according to the pictorial evidence listed here, in 1958, and if you haven't already seen the fraudulent Sister Lucy, put in her place, who mysteriously emerged after a "silence" of 16 years.http://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/g12htArt2_TwoSisterLucys.htmhttp://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/g11htTwoSisterLucys_Horvat.htm
It's not difficult to see anymore that Russia is still a huge threat to the world. In 1987, an ex-KGB agent came out and said this:(Keep in mind that their agenda is usually 20+ years in advance of their goal, and they are always moving forward with it.)
I'll go into more detail later, but I think this is enough to swallow for those unfamiliar with the goings on.
