Third, December 17, 1927
Lucia was unsure about how much of the three secrets, if any, she could make known without going contrary to our Lady’s directive not to reveal them. Lucia wrote, “Jesus made her hear very distinctly these words, “My daughter write what they ask of you. Write all that the most holy Virgin revealed to you in the [July 13] apparition in which she spoke of devotion. As for the remainder of the Secret, continue to keep silence.” Lucia was permitted to reveal the First & Second secrets but NOT the Third.
Revelations at Tuy, Spain Two conditions to avoid wars, persecutions of Church, spread of Communism
May 29-30, 1930 Received further understanding of the First Five Saturdays. Laity part.
June 13, 1929 last vision of Fatima
Our Lady appeared to Sr. Lucia and repeated her request for the consecration of Russia (papal act) to Her Immaculate Heart, as she had requested during her Third Apparition on July 13, 1917.
Sr. Lucia saw a magnificent vision of the Most Holy Trinity and Our Blessed Lady. Our Lady said, “The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father in union with all the Bishops of the world, to make the consecration to my Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means. There are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me, that I have come to ask reparation: sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.”
1941 in her memoirs at request of the Bishop of Leiria to assist with a book on Jacinta, Sr. Lucia reveals the First & Second Secret. She does not reveal the Third Secret as it was not time.
Sr. Lucia wrote the Third Secret down, but put it in an envelope labeled to be read in 1960 or after her death whichever comes first. Disgraced Cdl Angelo Sodano & Cdl Bertone announced the release of the Third Secret, gave an interpretation. The Vatican published the Third Secret June 26, 2000.
Lucia died Feb 13, 2005 at 97yrs Coimbra, Portugal
Triumph of Immaculate Heart hastened by Two Things
God wins but not without our Free Will/consent evidenced by our actions
Fides is buttressed by reason informed by Truth
- Hierarchical/Papal Consecration of Russia
- Laity First Saturdays & Daily Rosary with a view towards Reparation
There is something concrete we can do. Not mystical. We can pray the rosary every day. We can acts of reparation. Hell is not a figment of our imaginations. Our Lady wouldn’t show a terrifying vision unless good cause to do so.
Reincarnation making the rounds. Love second chances. Toleration of sinful behavior. Excuse for sin. Human nature cannot perfect itself no matter how many chances. Vast number people want to be good but make sinful choices.
Dante vision of hell. Sees pity for them. Until he gets far enough that the punishment is perfectly just, long for justice to be meted out. No sorrow of people in hell by those in heaven. Perfectly justified.
By our own suffering, reparation, prayers, permitting share in His salvific history. We can change lives eternally of certain people. Our Lord lets us. Our Lady, they have no wine. He changes time for her request. When we ascent, Triumph of Immaculate Heart comes quicker.
