Our conclusions about the Third Secret of Fatima can be expressed in the following way - starting with the words that lead into the Secret - and ending with the words that close it:
'In Portugal the doctrines of the faith will always be preserved, but elsewhere Russia through a linking with Freemasonry will undermine those same doctrines and so bring about the emergence of the Antichrist, an agent of Russia. He is the one foretold by Scripture and will abolish the Mass and erect an idol for the worship of all mankind, and then Russia will invade all nations, forcing people to worship the idol on pain of death. Men will no longer be shielded by the presence of Christ in the Mass from the deceptions of Satan, who will display miracles to suggest that Antichrist is God, and these will lead many into following him and so abandoning the faith.. But Christians must refuse and hold firm under persecution. will be predisposed by Antichrist’s intervention in a Mass. It is Satan's attempt to set up his own kingdom on earth, in place of the Church. But in the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and it will be saved and a time of peace will be granted to the world'.
If this indeed is what is contained in the Secret, as evidence indicates, this may be a warning that is timely. But if that is the case, why is the Vatican claiming something different, namely that it was all fulfilled in the events of recent history?
