The Third Secret
is Important to YOU!
by Coralie Graham, Editor
We cannot exaggerate the importance of the Third Secret because it concerns the salvation of your very own soul.
How can we know that it is about your salvation? How can we know that souls, maybe even yourself personally, need to know it. The answers to these questions are very simple.
One, it is about our salvation because Our Lady said: “If My requests are heeded, many souls will be saved.” She requested Her Third Secret to be revealed no later than 1960. Her requests to us in this generation are specified in the Third Secret. The clear implication is that if Her requests are not heeded, many souls will be lost.
Back in 1917
Already in 1917, Our Lady showed the children the vision of hell with many human souls in hell. She told them, “Many souls go to hell because they have no one to make sacrifices and pray for them.” That was back in 1917 — things were much better then than today.
There was no “legalized” abortion, no “legalized” homo-sexuality, there was no “legalized” contraception; there was not divorce as there is today. In 1951, Pius XII said, “Today the world is worse than before the flood.” Still, in 1951 there was no legalized abortion, etc. in the West.
Today it is many times worse. Who of us can be certain he will stand strong? Which one of us can claim he will resist what is still to come?
Our Lord asks: “When the Son of Man returns, do you think He will find faith on the earth?” He seems to refer to the time of the “Great Apostasy” predicted in Sacred Scripture in which St. Paul tells us that masses of former Catholics will leave the Church, leave the Faith, leave the law of God, because they have not loved the truth. (2 Thess. 2:1-12)
Can We Be Certain?
Can we be certain that the world, the flesh and the devil all around us will not also drag us down — drag us down with the third of the stars of Heaven — the former good Catholic priests, bishops and Cardinals who are dragged down from Heaven to the earth, dragged in the mud and put at the service of the devil?
Can we be so certain we’ll not be taken down too? It is often the saints who fear for their own virtue. It is often the fallen, who are much worse than they think, who have no fear of these things.
The Third Secret Gives Solutions
Let us be convinced the Third Secret — which predicts the present “Great Apostasy” we are now in — will also give us remedies against these evil days. We know this because the Blessed Virgin Mary came primarily to save our souls, not to simply tell us of a terrifying future with no solutions offered.
The Third Secret warns us of specific dangers that the majority of our clergy have not succeeded in effectively telling us about.
The Third Secret concerns each of us, it is addressed to each of us. Pope John Paul II said: “The Message of Fatima is addressed to every human being.” Some of us may well perish for all eternity unless we know the Third Secret in time. Perhaps you personally can do without it — but then again, perhaps not. God knows, Our Lady knows — but you and I do not. So is this Third Secret important to you? Absolutely yes!
That is why we have presented so much material on the Third Secret in this issue of The Fatima Crusader. Read it all. Get extra copies to pass out to all your loved ones, to your priests.
The Catholic Church tells each of us that we the Faithful should indeed ask for the spiritual riches which are meant for you personally. Our Lady addressed the Third Secret to you for your salvation! Ask for the spiritual riches that are contained in the Third Secret. The riches of Good Counsel, the riches of Our Lady's hidden promises. Ask for the Third Secret to be fully released. All of this will be clearer once you read this whole magazine.
The Secret is not “strictly reserved to the Holy Father” (Declaration of Cardinal Ottaviani, February 11, 1967), it does not just concern Portugal … I will spell it out: “We are running out of time, if we are not coverted soon, we will fall into apostasy and we will die in terrible chastisements, which will already be among these cataclysms, wars, famines, and persecutions which the Holy Books announce for the coming of the End of Time.” The Third Secret — by Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité (page 830).
