On 25th June I received an email with permission to print the contents - to do with the Third Secret of Fatima. Mr Franco Adessa - secretary of the late Fr Luigi Villa - has given the go-ahead to publish this.

It isn't long and won't take you long to read.

Sorry I could not attach the link properly so I had to copy and paste it - so it doesn't look as neat as the original.


Our Lady revealed the Third Secret to Lucy, on July 13, 1917, at the Cova da Iria (Fatima).
Lucy wrote down the Third Secret of Fatima on January 3, 1944. She gave it to the Bishop of
Leiria in 1957, and he handed it over to the Vatican. After reading it, John XXIII gave it to the Prefect
of the Holy Office, Card. Ottaviani, to read, and then he filed it. In 1963, Paul VI read the Third
Secret, and filed it away. And so did all his successors.
In the same year, 1963, Card. Ottaviani wrote a “diplomatic version” of the Third Secret which
he sent to the authorities in Washington, London and Moscow, with the intent to put an end to nuclear
testing. This text was published by the German periodical of Stuttgart, “Neues Europa,” on October
15, 1963, with Card. Ottaviani’s authorization.
The text of this “diplomatic version” was about three times longer than the Third Secret, and
therefore, it was a “fake.” However, this “diplomatic” text also had a “secret”: It contained all the
sentences of the Third Secret of Fatima, written by Lucia! But who knew these sentences?
Cardinal Ottaviani and ... Fr. Luigi Villa!
In 1956, Fr. Luigi Villa, was commissioned by Padre Pio to dedicate his life to defend the Church
of Christ from the work of Ecclesiastical Freemasonry and, via the Archbishop of Chieti, Msgr. Bosio,
he received a papal mandate from Pope Pius XII to carry out this delicate task. Pius XII entrusted
Fr. Villa to Card. Ottaviani to be trained and instructed on all the secrets of the Church pertaining to
his mandate. So it was that, for many years, Fr. Villa became Card. Ottaviani’s secret agent.
Among the secrets that Fr. Villa had to know was the Third Secret of Fatima.
Fr. Villa knew all the sentences of the Third Secret contained in Card. Ottaviani’s “diplomatic version.” It was Father Villa, who one day told me all these sentences, one by one. It was
he, shortly before his death, who gave me the permission to publish them in my “testimony”!
Brescia, June 24, 2013 In Faith, Mr. Franco Adessa


A great chastisement will fall on the entire human race; not today as
yet, not tomorrow, but in the second half of the Twentieth Century.
No longer does order reign anywhere and Satan will reign over the
highest places directing the course of events. He (Satan) really will
succeed in infiltrating to the top of the Church.
Also for the Church a time of Her greatest trials will come. Cardinals
will oppose Cardinals; Bishops will oppose Bishops and Satan will
march amid their ranks, and in Rome there will be changes. What is
rotten will fall, and what will fall will never rise again.
The Church will be darkened and the world deranged by terror.
A great war will break out within the second half of the Twentieth
Century. Fire and smoke will fall from Heaven, the water of the
oceans will become vapors and the foam will rise up flooding and sinking everything. Millions and millions of people will die by the hour
and the survivors will envy the dead.
Death will reign everywhere for the errors committed by the foolish
and by the partisans of Satan, who, then and only then, will reign
over the world. At last, those who will survive all of these events will
once more proclaim God and His Glory and serve Him like before, when
the world was not so corrupted.

Praying outside an abortion clinic - worth every horrid minute!

American pro-lifers are having some modest success with their prayer vigils outside abortion clinics. The "40 days for Life" is particularly successful and I am reading the book on how it all started - it is on ibooks or hard copy - called "40 Days for Life" by David Bereit & Shawn Carney - gripping. See

Slowly but surely abortion clinics are toppling one by one - I believe there is one state which has no abortion centres left! That is the result of prayer. God is all-powerful!

The power of prayer is more powerful than governments. We are NEVER going to get rid of abortion through the law. But prayer vigils are doing something - oh yes! This week, the main BPAS abortion centre in Bedford Square, London is going to stop doing abortions from the end of June 2013. The prayer vigils have been taking place there for a number of years by a couple of pro-life groups - "The Good Counsel Network" and the "40 Days for Life". Twitter is awash with it. Just type in BPAS Bedford Square and a number of articles come up. 

I did it once - a year ago - as I wanted to see how practical it was for me to get to London and back in time for school pick-up time. I was also struck by the life of pro-life activist Ruth Pakaluk (RIP and I saint I should think). She said that she hated picketing and leafleting outside abortion clinics, BUT as a Catholic she did not have a choice to do NOTHING. After all it only takes for men to do nothing for evil to flourish. If we do nothing to stand up for the unborn then we will have to answer to God when the time comes. The people who favour abortion were all allowed to be born!

I did not want to go to London and pray outside the BPAS - of course I didn't! It was a cold day and I was nervous - deadly nervous. For I hate  confrontation of any sort. 

When I got to the prayer spot, there was a young man who was in charge - he was alone. This was the middle of the day so not many volunteers available. Then a young girl joined us as we started saying the rosary. One man on a bike stopped by and looked at all the posters of the campaign and said an expletive, then rode off. A man in a car stopped and said a swear word. But apart from that it was trouble-free. Unlike on one occasion (I wasn't there) - when the bishop joined the prayer group which was quite large, and some protestors started screaming abuse. 

I only did it the once. It isn't practical for me to get to central London and back for school run as it is a 3.5 hour round trip, and we live in a rural location which only has one train an hour to London. I did try and find a nearer clinic to my house - which would be suitable for a prayer campaign, but can't find any, or they just don't advertise. Or they take place in hospitals - I don't know. 

This news is significant I feel. The prayer vigils are going to continue and hopefully hearts and minds will change even if the law doesn't. Fewer and fewer doctors of all religions and none are prepared to do abortions. They can see the humanity of the child from as early as a few weeks after conception. The DNA is all there at the moment of conception.

But the praying to end abortion goes hand in hand with living life purely and chastely and with self-control. If society can master temperance and self-control - then miracles will happen. Single adults need to have self-respect and treasure their virtue.

STREET PASTORS - a phenomenal success!

On Sunday our parish took part in the annual joint ecumenical 'service' with the "Churches Together" outfit. Our priest had to re-arrange the usual 11am mass to 6pm on the Saturday evening. He said a 9am mass at the sister parish.

Anyway I don't usually take part in these events but this year I was curious to know what it was all about.

It was in a large community centre in the local market town and it was interdenominational. In this part of Sussex we have a lot of 'strict Baptists' and Methodists and there are off-shoots of the CofE such as the Union church and King's Church.

The average age was 60+ and there were about 10 teenagers and one child in a pushchair.

The main 'speaker' was a deacon from Chichester Cathedral and he was pop star confident. He calls himself Ishmael and makes CDs with happy clappy songs. Plus he had a stand with his book of meditations and daily thoughts. The CDs were for sale and a new one was about to come out! He was very slick and polished. There was also a huge poster of himself promoting his new CD.

He went on stage and called out for young participants - as he wanted them to do the actions to one of his 'songs'. These poor youngsters were dragged out and told to do certain hand  and body gestures to his songs. He told the oldies to pretend to be children and do the actions. The 2 songs were "Woolfie Woolfie' and "Build a bigger barn". The words were on a screen in large print so the oldies could see it. There was a man playing some sort of musical instrument. The teenagers looked suitably embarrassed but did what they were told. The audience did their best.

The songs had a very strong message - about not putting your wealth in bigger barns and about knowing who the wolves are in sheep's  clothing.

Apart from this 'knees up' there was an excellent speaker for "Street Pastors". This is an interdenominational organisation which goes out into the streets, in all weathers at night, to help drunks and druggies - plus wayward teenagers. It is a truly good thing working in partnership with the parish council and the local police. After 5 years our little town has no more anti-social behaviour. Street Pastors has been in the UK for 10 years.

They wear a navy uniform with large white lettering on the back "STREET PASTOR". There are now 10,000 pastors in the UK and growing. It is now international. The website is

Our parish priest decided we probably wouldn't take part in this event again. He said it wasn't worth swapping his 11am mass around. He felt rather uncomfortable with the whole thing.

Never sure what "Churches Together" are for anyway.

Fatima and the on-going controversies

I am very attached to the Fatima story. I grew up with it - I knew the story off by heart as granny re-told it so many times. I learnt about the the miracle of the sun which spun off its axis and zig-zagged towards earth - and how 70,000 people witnessed this event on 13th October 1919. Their eyes were not damaged and having sodden wet clothes before the sun episode, their clothes were bone dry afterwards. All the press reported this event.

The secrets fascinated me - especially the vision of Hell - which Our Lady showed the little seers - to show them how many souls go to Hell because no one prays for them. They saw a hideous vision of blackened humans screaming out and demon-like figures. Jacinta - the youngest of the visionaries was only 6 or 7 when she witnessed this event.

Granny was also a member of the "Blue Army" of Fatima. She had a statue of Our Lady of Fatima in a wooden box with doors. On each of the doors is a list of what Our Lady wants us to do - things like saying the rosary daily, doing the First Five Saturdays and other devotions. The prophecies are also on the doors.

I also had my 'funny turn' on the Feast of Fatima - 13th May. So, Fatima is a big part of in my life.

But I didn't realise about the 'controversies' surrounding Fatima until I started studying more deeply around 10 years ago - especially about the 3rd secret. Our Lady wanted the Third Secret to be read out to the world in 1960. The world waited with baited breath as 1960 approached. The Pope read the secret to himself and said it wasn't "for now". The world did not get the Third Secret. There must have been something dire in that secret which was then put in a vaulted safe. What is so terrible in that secret?!

Also - was the consecration of Russia done properly? Some say yes, others say definitely not. Fr Gruner of the Fatima Apostolate in Canada is in the latter camp - he has done endless studies of it. Fr Gobbi (RIP) also said the 1984 consecration was not done in full as Pope John Paul II consecrated the world - although there is evidence to suggest he wanted to mention Russia but the iron 'powers in the Vatican' stopped him.

Well we can study the fruits of that 1984 consecration of the world - yes Communism did start falling and that is good. But have we had the period of peace which Our Lady said we would have once Russia was consecrated? A sort of false peace maybe. Trouble is - Communism might have 'died' but it started rearing its head under another name - secular humanism. The EU is a case in point - it has become very dictatorial of late. Our Lady also said Russia would become Catholic - well we are still waiting.

We know a Pope will consecrate Russia because Our lady said - "The consecration will happen, but it will be late - once the bloody events are under way". Well I think we are at that point - there are bloody events all over the world - in Nigeria - Christians are being burnt - their churches burnt down - look at Syria - look at the Middle East. The world is in a deep state of unrest - the EU and America are bust - the unemployment rate in places like Spain is leading to youth unrest. In London - a young officer gets literally macheted by a nutter. Abortion continues unabated and real horror stories such as the Gosnell Trial have come to light (there are many Gosnells out there apparently). A baby was rescued from a sewer pipe in China last week. Every other day there is yet another case of child abuse - this time a 4 year old boy - Daniel Pelka starved to death   by his evil parents and fed salt - it made me sob. Is this peace?! The Hell it isn't! The world seems to have lost its moral compass - the 10 Commandments are ignored at its peril.

Back in 2000 or thereabouts the Third Secret was read out to the world - apparently. But it was actually so bland and mild that you wonder why it was hidden for so long. No there has to be another part which is too dire - and yes - like Mother Angelica of EWTN, I too think it's scary.

Antonio Socci - the well respected Italian journalist - was asked by the Vatican to research the Fatima  story and toe 'the party line'. He agreed to work with the Vatican. But he came out with a different viewpoint - so much so, that he wrote a book called "The Fourth Secret of Fatima". He had been happy to 'toe the party line' but what he uncovered was a very different story. It's a jolly good read and I recommend it - now translated in English.

I came accross a very interesting website written by Iain Colquhon. It contains useful information on the Fatima controversies.
