All was revealed about Third Secret of Fatima: Benedict

Vatican, May 23, 2016: Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has issued a rare public statement, via the Vatican Press Office, to insist that claims the famed Third Secret of Fatima has not been revealed in full “are pure inventions, absolutely untrue.”

Benedict’s statement came in reply to claims made by German professor Ingo Dollinger, who said recently that in 2000, then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger told him in confidence the third message transmitted by Our Lady of Fatima had not been completely released.

What is generally called the “Third Secret” represents the third and final part of the full prophetic Secret revealed by Our Lady of Fatima to three shepherd children in Portugal on July 13, 1917. The first two sections were revealed by one of the children, Sister Lucia, in 1940s, when she wrote her memoirs.

Professor Dollinger spoke with blogger Maike Hickson of One Peter Five, and confirmed that Cardinal Ratzinger, who at the time was prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), which released the “Third Secret” in 2000, had told him; “There is more than what we published.”

According to the German scholar, before becoming Pope Benedict, the Cardinal also said that the unpublished part of the secret speaks about “a bad council and a bad Mass” that was to come in the near future – presumably a reference to the Second Vatican Council and its liturgical reforms, since the secrets are believed to have been entrusted by Mary to the Fatima visionaries in 1917.

Professor Dollinger’s words were then picked up by other news outlets, which prompted the Emeritus Pope to respond.

“In this regard, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI declares ‘never to have spoken with Professor Dollinger about Fatima,’ clearly affirming that the remarks attributed to Professor Dollinger on the matter ‘are pure inventions, absolutely untrue’, and he confirms decisively that ‘the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete’,” the Vatican statement says.

The statement was released in Italian, English and Spanish, typically an indication the Vatican wants it to have a wide distribution.
