S. Cardinal Ottaviani:
The message was not to be opened before 1960. I asked Sister Lucia, “Why this date?” She answered, “Because then it will be clearer.”
Cardinal Ottaviani was the head of the Holy Office. He interrogated Sister Lucia in 1955.
Fr. J. Schweigl:
I cannot reveal anything of what I learned at Fatima concerning the Third Secret, but I can say that it has two parts: one concerns the Pope; the other logically (although I must say nothing) would have to be the continuation of the words: 'In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved' (The Whole Truth about Fatima, Vol. III, p. 74).
Pope Pius XII personally sent Fr. Schweigle to interrogate Sr. Lucia about the Third Secret in 1952.
Fr. Joaquin AlonsoIn the period preceding the great triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, terrible things are to happen.
These form the content of the third part of the Secret.
What are they? If 'in Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved' it can be clearly deduced from this that in other parts of the Church the dogmas are going to become obscure or even lost altogether.
Perhaps it even refers to the failures of the upper hierarchy of the Church.
Fr. Alonso was the official archivist of Fatima, 1965
J. Cardinal Ratzinger:
Yes, I have read [the Third Secret]. [It refers to] a radical call to conversion; the absolute seriousness of history; the dangers which threaten the faith and the life of the Christian and therefore (the life) of the world (Jesus, November 11, 1984).
Cardinal Ratzinger became Pope Benedict the XVI in 2005.
St. Nicholas von Flue (15th century)
“The Church will be punished because the majority of Her members, high and low, will become so perverted. The Church will sink deeper and deeper until She will at last seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other Apostles to have expired. But, after this, She will be victoriously exalted in the sight of all doubters.”
St. John Bosco (19th century)
“There will be an Ecumenical Council in the next century, after which there will be chaos in the Church.” [1862 Prediction]
