The Pope Proclaims May 13
Feast of Our Lady of Fatima
By Father Paul Kramer, B.Ph., S.T.B., M. Div., S.T.L. (Cand.)
Pope John Paul II made May 13 the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. This is the highest form of approval that the Fatima apparitions have yet received. The feast commemorating the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima is a Feast of the Universal Church.
Putting the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima on the calendar of the Universal Church gives us the assurance that there is nothing contrary to faith and morals in the message of Our Lady of Fatima, in accordance with the teaching of Pope St. Celestine I, "the law of prayer establishes the law of belief" (lex orandi lex credendi).
The apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima are, in fact, as the late theologian Joseph de St. Marie explained, the fulfillment of biblical prophecy. Specifically, as Pope John Paul II indicated in his sermon of beatification of Francisco and Jacinta, citing the Apocalypse (Apoc. 12:4) and Pope Paul VI indicated in his encyclical, Signum Magnum, Fatima is the fulfillment of apocalyptic prophecy.
Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II, declared on May 13, 2000: "The message of Fatima is a call to conversion, alerting humanity to have nothing to do with the ‘dragon’ whose ‘tail swept down a third of the stars of Heaven, and cast them to the earth’ (Apoc. 12:4)." This is, in fact, what is revealed in the Third Secret of Fatima.
As Cardinal Luigi Ciappi plainly stated in his message to Professor Baumgartner of Salzburg, "In the Third Secret it is foretold, amongst other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top."
In 1999, the late Malachi Martin stated on the Art Bell Show that, while he was secretary to Cardinal Bea, he was given to read the Secret of Fatima in early February 1960, which he described as written on a single sheet of paper.
He stated that Our Lady’s words were very dry and specific and they foretold of a future "pope" (not the true Pope, but an heretical antipope) who would be completely under the control of the devil. It is clear then, that the Third Secret of Fatima reveals the "mystery of iniquity" (2 Thess. 2:7), the mystery of the red dragon, whose tail swept down a third of the "stars of Heaven", i.e. one third of the Catholic hierarchy.
The "mystery of iniquity" is the ancient mysteries of masonry: the pagan Luciferian sect which declares itself to be the counter-church and the anti-church. The Freemasons proclaimed during their two-hundredth anniversary celebration in Rome in 1917: "satan will rule from the Vatican. The Pope will be his slave."
The Third Secret of Fatima reveals this "mystery of iniquity": a counterfeit Pope will rule from the Vatican. A great portion of the Catholic hierarchy will follow him into apostasy. The true Pope will be hunted down and killed, along with many prelates and laypeople.
One can understand why Sister Lucy had such great difficulty even writing the Secret down. The very idea that the Roman Curia could be taken over by the forces of iniquity, which will take complete control of the Vatican, is a thought most horrifying to any Catholic.
Yet, as Cardinal Ratzinger stated in November 1984, the Secret of Fatima corresponds to what is written in Sacred Scripture and is revealed in many other Marian Apparitions.
We see the Third Secret of Fatima in the Book of Lamentations (Ch. 4, Vs. 12): "The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world would not have believed, that the adversary and the enemy should enter in by the gates of Jerusalem." Our Lady of La Salette said: "Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist."
The Secret of Fatima and the Sacred Scriptures foretell the fulfillment of the "mystery of iniquity" in the masonic occupation of the Roman Curia and the great apostasy in the Church that will result from it.
Pope Leo XIII declared: "To unmask masonry is to defeat it." By thwarting the Pope’s intention to reveal the Third Secret of Fatima, Cardinal Sodano prevents the unmasking of masonry, and thereby prevents the defeat of masonry. One wonders to whom does he owe his obedience — to the Holy Father or to the Grand Lodge?
The policy of concealing the Third Secret does not serve the interest of the Catholic Church. If the Catholic faithful would be sufficiently forewarned about the apostasy revealed in the Third Secret, they would be immunized against it.
The full disclosure of the Secret would do much to accomplish that. Keeping the Secret hidden will leave the faithful insufficiently informed about the impending apostasy with the foreseeable result that millions of souls will be led astray, will fall into apostasy. This is what Bishop Cosme do Amaral alluded to on September 10, 1984 when he spoke of "the loss of faith in entire continents" in his well-known discourse at the Technical University of Vienna. This, quite obviously, serves the interests of the devil and his minions, the Freemasons.
Father Hubert Jedin, one of the premier historians of the modern era, pointed out to the German bishops in 1968 that the situation in the Church today is parallel to the situation of the Church at the time of the Reformation: "... One must, therefore, maintain the schism of the Church succeeded by nothing so much as the illusion that it did not exist ... the parallels between now and then are obvious ..."
The revelation of the Third Secret will destroy the illusion of the "mystery of iniquity". It is the apostasy foretold in Scripture. It is not the Church of Christ. It is not of God. It is the counter-church. It is the anti-church. It is the Masonic Temple: "A mystery; Babylon the Great, the mother of the fornications, and the abominations of the earth." (Apoc. 17:5)
