The Secret of Fatima Revealed

What is the Secret of Fatima?

The Secret of Fatima is a prophetic vision of future world events delivered with a peace plan from Heaven, to 3 young shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal 1917.  The Children of Fatima together witnessed a series of apparitions of the Virgin Mary from May 13th 1917 to October 13th 1917.

It was during the third apparition of the Virgin Mary on July 13th 1917 that she bestowed the Fatima Prophesy to them, in trust, as a Secret.  The Secret of Fatima was to be revealed at a later time deemed appropriate by ‘Heaven’.

The Fatima prophecy was revealed to the world in 3 distinct parts.

The delayed public revelation of the Third Secret of Fatima has caused controversy for the Church, division between devotees, and accusations of a Vatican conspiracy to hide the true meaning and Message of Fatima.

The First Secret of Fatima

After a 25 year silence, the First Secret of Fatima was revealed to the Bishop of Leiria in a memoire, written by Lucia Dos Santos, the oldest of the Seers.  

The Bishop of Leiria had requested a detailed account of the short life of the youngest of the Children of Fatima, Lucia’s cousin Jacinta Marto, for the third edition of a published book, titled ‘Jacinta’, in 1941.

Lucia interpreted an internal compulsion as Heaven’s sign that the time was right for her to reveal the first part of the Secret of Fatima.

“This request penetrated to the depths of my soul like a ray of light, giving me to know that the time has come to reveal the first two part of the secret”.  Sr. Lucia (original translation)

The First and Second parts of the Secret of Fatima were publicly revealed as separate chapters in the book ‘Jacinta’, published in1942.

The Original Text of the First Secret of Fatima

Original Letter of the First Secret of Fatima by Lucia Dos Santos

Original Letter of the First Secret of Fatima by Lucia Dos Santos

Translation of the Original Text:

… What is the secret? It seems to me that I can reveal it, since I already have permission from Heaven to do so.

Well, the secret is made up of three distinct parts, two of which I am now going to reveal. 

The first part is the vision of hell

Our Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared us by promising, in the first Apparition, to take us to heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear and terror. 

We then looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so kindly and so sadly: 

“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.

The Fatima Controversy

The Fatima Controversy is Fuelled by Pope Francis’ Consecration

The Fatima Controversy, of a Vatican conspiracy to hide the real message of Fatima, has been fuelled by Pope Francis’ consecration of the World to Fatima, on October 13th 2013.

In his short time as Pope, Francis has made two public consecrations to Our Lady of Fatima (the Virgin Mary).  The most recent, on October 13th 2013, the 96th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun, fuelled the belief of the Fatima controversy devotees, the Fatima Network, that the message of Fatima has not been fulfilled.  The leader of this fringe group, Fr. Gruner, who was in Vatican City, was asked to leave by Vatican security four times whilst distributing propaganda materials.


What is consecration?

To consecrate is to dedicate an object or person to a specific purpose.  In this context, is a commitment to the meaning and message of Fatima. 


Fatima a Vatican priority

Hours after his election as Pope, Francis made a special request to the Portuguese Cardinal to dedicate his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima.  It was performed on May 13th 2013, the date of the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.  The last Pope to make such an act of devotion was John Paul II, who believed that he owed his life to Our Lady of Fatima after his failed assassination attempt on May 13th 1981.  John Paul II was also implicated in the Fatima controversy by his public revelation of the final part of the Secret of Fatima.


The Message of Fatima

The Message of Fatima is a peace plan delivered by the Virgin Mary to three young shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal in 1917.  The peace plan showed premonitions of catastrophic future world events, with instructions of how to avoid them.  Originally told as a Secret in three parts, the Message of Fatima was interpreted and revealed by the Vatican on instruction by the Virgin Mary, who continued to deliver messages to Sister Lucia (nee Lucia Dos Santos, the oldest shepherd) throughout her life.


The Secret of Fatima

It is the interpretation and revelation of the Message of Fatima that has caused the Fatima controversy.  Fringe groups of Fatima devotees capitalize on the belief that the Vatican has hidden the real Message of Fatima by holding back parts of the Secret of Fatima, and has not fulfilled the specific instructions defined by the Virgin Mary.


The Consecration of Russia

Part of the Secret was delivered in the Third Apparition of the Virgin Mary on July 13th 1917.  It revealed the end of the First World War but the threat of a second, worse war.  To prevent it, the Virgin Mary said that she would return to ask that the Pope consecrate Russia to her, for which reward would be a period of peace in the world.  At the time, Russia was embracing Communism and its associated Atheism.

The strong warning from the Virgin Mary was that if the consecration was not done, that Communism would spread throughout the world resulting in war, famine, and the persecution of the Church.

The Specific Request

The Virgin Mary appeared to Lucia in 1929 with the request for the Consecration of Russia to her heart.  She returned again in 1939 asking that the dedication should be extended to include ‘all the world’ with a special mention of Russia, and in union with all of the Bishops of the world.  This addition to the message adds to the Fatima controversy as not a part of the original message.


The Popes and Fatima

Four Popes have so far performed consecrations to the Virgin Mary at Fatima. However, it was not until John Paul II’s third attempt in 1984 that the dedication was confirmed by Sister Lucia as accomplished.

October 31st 1942

Pope Pius XII consecrated the world to Our Lady of Fatima.

July 7th 1952

Pope Pius XII consecrates the people of Russia to Our Lady of Fatima

November 21st 1964

Pope Paul VI renews the consecration of Russia in the presence of, but without the participation of the Vatican council.

May 13th 1982

Pope John Paul II invites the Bishops of the world to consecrate the world and Russia, but many did not receive the instruction in time.  Lucia confirmed that the consecration did not fulfill the conditions.

October 1983

Pope John Paul II renews the consecration at the Synod of Bishops.

March 25th 1984

Pope John Paul II, in union with the Bishops of the world, consecrates the whole world to Fatima.

On August 29th 1989, Lucia confirmed by letter that the consecration had been accomplished and that “God would keep his word”.

Sister Lucia, John Paul II, Fatima Controversy

Sister Lucia became a close associate of Pope John Paul II as he dedicated his papacy to Fatima.

Interesting Facts:   The End of the Cold War

On March 11th 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev was elected as the Soviet Chairman.

On November 9th 1989, the Berlin Wall fell.

On December 25th 1991 the Union of Soviet Social Republics was dissolved.

Fatima Controversy:  Consecration or Conspiracy?

Do you believe that the consecration was achieved? Or, do you believe in the Fatima controversy of a conspiracy to hide the real meaning of the message of Fatima?

The Fatima Controversy theorists say that the consecration has not been performed correctly, and base their arguments on the fact that we are not yet enjoying a period of peace, and Russia has yet to be converted.

Those that believe the consecration has been achieved base their acceptance on the fact that Sister Lucia made a personal confirmation by correspondence to the Pope.
