The 3rd Secret of Fatima --1960 -- and Today’s Clergy Abuse Crisis is there a Connection?

The 3rd Secret of Fatima --1960 --

Today’s Clergy Abuse Crisis

Is there a Connection?

In light of this new wound added to the mystical body of Christ in the ongoing  Fr. Corapi  scandal I decided to revise this post from a year ago. I am not taking sides in the present controversy waiting for all the truth to be manifest over time.  I only hope to shed light on WHY it is happening!  What is going on in the church in the world today in the light of the Fatima Message

The recent attacks on the papacy by the liberal media made me wonder if there was a connection with Fatima and the 3rd Secret. See: Unprecedented Media Attacks on the Pope-Fueled by the Devil?  How could this crisis have happened? Evidence in light of this current crisis suggests that there is some infiltration into the church by a network; if not communists then homosexuals even those who practice the occult in order to destroy the church from within.

This  heartbreaking scandal concerning Fr. Corapi. culminated again today,  with  the Catholic News Agency article on line Fr. Corapi's order finds him guilty!  

Father John Corapi’s religious order has found him guilty of substance abuse, sexual activity and violating his promise of poverty. A July 5 press release from the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity (SOLT) said that while Fr. Corapi was involved in public ministry he had “sexual relations and years of cohabitation with a woman known to him, when the relationship began, as a prostitute.”

 I am attending a parish that allows the Tridentine Mass so I am secluded very much from all the shenanigans that take place in many of our more progressive parishes. Non-the-less there are times I have to attend Mass somewhere outside the protective arms of a faithful parish. I recently attended Mass at a Catholic Hospital in my Archdiocese and the chaplain gave me indications of his poor state of soul by his actions during the sacred mysteries. He stopped the Mass at various points to tell a joke and comment on our singing. Completely irrelevant to the sacred mysteries he was about to or had already conferred. The last irreverent distraction from him took place after we sang the Agnus Dei Lamb of God he stopped the Mass to Joke about our singing! This happened at three different Masses I attended. The last time I was so upset I did not even pay attention to what he was saying just shook my head no as he was looking at me and smiling. I could not receive communion then because of the angry feelings I had and attended another Mass somewhere else that day. I did let him know before I left that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was not the time to do stand up comedy. Alas another place I cannot go for Mass! 

The Devil Mirrors the Communion of Saints

Recent events during the current clergy abuse crisis suggests to me that the evil spirit has a mirror for the communion of saints.  St. Thomas Aquinas calls it the communion of evil. It works like our communion of saints church triumphant in heaven and militant on earth. Only we have souls in hell and souls in this life in deliberate mortal sin who are under the power of the evil one. Much can be said about this but it will have to wait for another future post. We have an indication of this battle in the church in the Locution of Pope Leo XII when Satan was given permission by Jesus to try to destroy the church in a 100 years time. Some accounts state that the locution or vision took place on October 13, 1884 exactly 33 years to the day of the miracle of the sun at Fatima! See: Locution of Pope Leo XIII 

St Thomas wrote on these mystical bodoes "The Mystical Body of Christ and the mystical body of the Devil or of the Antichrist. To one or another every man belongs. The Mystical Body of Christ is the Holy Church, His pure and faithful Spouse …. The mystical body of the Devil is the ensemble of impious men. Like an adulterous wet nurse, it nourishes this ensemble. The Devil is its head, and the evil persons are its members …. “The body of the Devil,” says St. Gregory, “is composed by all the impious men.”

Just as Christ, in Himself and through His disciples, always seeks to cut off the members of the Devil and incorporate them to Himself .… so also does the Devil. By his efforts and those of his cohorts, the Devil aims to amputate the members of Christ to unite them to the sordid members of his prostitute ….

“Know you not, that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I, then, taking the members of Christ, make them the members of a harlot?” (1Cor 6:15)  And St. Paul answers: “God forbid.”

St. Augustine writes: “They cannot be at the same time members of Christ and members of a prostitute. Many receive the Body of Christ in the Sacrament, but not in their souls. By failing to receive Christ spiritually and leading bad lives, they reduce the members of Christ, making themselves members of the Devil, so they greatly diminish the Body of Christ.
(St. Thomas Aquinas, De venerabile Sacramenti Altaris, Marietti, 1931, p. 114)

 I am amazed at how quickly this spirit of evil has permeated the world and the church. In less than one generation! The generation that permitted contraceptives and abortion on demand! When I was growing up decent people never mentioned sodomy today we watch it on TV.
The Anti-Priests?

The following book exposing the infiltration of the church is titled the Anti-Priests. I read the book in the early 1980s and dismissed it. But in light of the priest abuse crisis I think the contents of the book have merit for us to consider today. I am not suggesting that Fr. Corapi is an antipriest. I am just making you aware of an organized attack on the church from Lucifer head of the mystical body of the devil who has the capabilities to mimic the Holy Spirit. Remember that he is the father of lies! 

A Communist/Homosexual Subversion?

Sadly, the state of the Catholic Church today in light of the abuse scandals shows the success of some sort of Communist/Homosexual subversion. Incredible as the current crises may have seemed some 30 years ago, it is here now!  An open book for everyone to see. 
Priesthood a permanent mark of Christ placed on the soul of those ordained-It cannot be left  it will go to Heaven or hell with them  

God also saw this crisis in the church and sent his angel with his Mother to Fatima as the Remedy. Knowing this gives us courage! I did not want to give the on line link for the book below because I disagree with some of the comments made by the editors who reprinted the book on line. They are stating that the Consecration of Russia still has not been accomplished. It is disheartening to see all these divisions in the body of Christ. Everywhere that God Performs a Miracle or Work of Grace, the Devil is at Work to Defuse, Confuse and Disillusion!

(Communism in the Church) WORLD TRENDS - December 1972
Postal Address: P. 0. Box 180,
Hawthorn, Vic. 3122, Australia.
Editor & Publisher, Y. L. Dupont

It is a diary of a Communist agent who became a Catholic priest to better destroy the Church. He was ordained in the early forties, and died in the late sixties, and his confessions survived him. He had overlooked one very important fact, however, that no man is master of his own life. He died in hospital as the result of a car accident. His papers were found in his briefcase, and read by the Catholic nurse who looked after him.

His diary indicated that as early as 1938, there were over one thousand Communist agents ordained as Catholic priests or studying for the priesthood. They formed an efficient network of Anti-Priests whose main function was the infiltration, subversion and control of the Catholic press and Publishing Houses with the aid of Soviet money. New ideas were to be spread; a new religion was to be promoted. How well they have succeeded can be seen in a comparison of their avowed aims with the state of the Church since the Council. The reader will be able to judge for himself. Today looking back we can see the enemies within the church were in their places hard at work decades before 1960. We can also take consolation in knowing that...

God also saw this Crisis in the Church!  
He Sent His Angel and Mother
to Fatima as the Remedy!

Pray for the Means to Unmask the Deceivers!

Reclaim and

Purify our Seminaries

This is an important reality for us to come to terms with. We cannot pretend it is not happening!  We have to acknowledge the reality if we wish to reclaim and purify our seminaries from those who follow and promote ideologies incompatible with the tenants of the faith we profess!  We must pray for the means to unmask the deceivers before they are ordained. Because we are dealing with principalities and powers some of the means must include spiritual discernment and prayer employing the rules of the saints and doctors of the Spirtual Life in the Church.  Saints such as St. Ignatius of Loyola and his spiritual exercises with Rules for Discernment of Spirits. The works on Ascetical And Mystical Theology by Adolphe Tanqueray, Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Catherine of Siena should be studied with the same diligence as the works on Moral Theology, Philosophy, and Apologetics.

Our neglect of a rounded in depth instruction for future priests in the principals of Ascetical and Mystical Theology have left us with priests unequipped to guide their people into a deeper relationship with God and protect them from the artifices of the devil.  Keeping priests in the dark they themselves will find it difficult to to discover and walk the path to union with God that was revealed to his church through the saints.

Ignorance of the principals of Ascetical and Mystical Theology has blinded us to a common sense approach in the simple discernment of spirits in observing if individuals are fit for ordination.

For example: People influenced by an evil spirit will have great difficulties praying the Rosary and distaste for Eucharistic Adoration unable to stay in front of the Blessed Sacrament for long periods without feeling some sort of affliction or agitation ect. On the other hand the devil will allow them to celebrate or attend Mass and receive Holy Communion if they are in mortal sin and their Communions are sacriligious.

I believe this was why the secret of Fatima was specifically asked to be opened in 1960. Sr. Lucia was told that at that time the secret would me more relevant.

In October 1943 the bishop of Leiria ordered Sr. Lucia to put the Third  secret in writing. Lucia after much prayer in obedience to the bishop wrote the secret down and sealed it in an envelope not to be opened until 1960, when "it will appear clearer.” The text of the third secret was officially released by Pope John Paul II in 2000.  Some like Fr. Gruner and the Fatima Crusader have made claims that it was not the entire secret revealed by Lucia, despite assertions from the Vatican to the contrary. I want to clarify that the secret was to be opened and read by the pope in 1960. Sr. Lucia never said that the secret was to be revealed to the entire church. Some like Fr. Gruener with the Fatima Crusader have maintaind that position. The decision was always up to the pope weather or not to make it public. The pope has the keys from Jesus and he was inspired not to reveal it at the time for good reason. I question anyone who puts his judgements over the popes.

What was so Important about 1960?
Looking back we see many Historical Events took place in the 1960s with regards to the Catholic Church, Fatima and the Conversion of Russia. The escalation of the Vietnam War to stop the spread of Communism; the Civil Rights Movement; the change in culture and the creation of a new counterculture that changed the world.  On July 13, 1960, another Fatima date the Democratic convention nominated John F. Kennedy as its candidate for president and he became America's 35th president and the first Catholic president. He served until his assassination November 22, 1963. We are still dealing with the effects of the social and political problems that arose during his short administration. 

Events during Kennedy's administration include:
The Bay of Pigs Invasion, 1961, an unsuccessful invasion of Cuba by Cuban exiles, supported by the U.S. government.
The Cuban Missile Crisis, (known as The October Crisis in Cuba) advanced to a critical confrontation between the Soviet Union, Cuba and the United States. The Kennedy administration held a slim hope that the Kremlin would agree to their demands, and expected a military confrontation. On the Soviet end, Nikita Khrushchev wrote in a letter to Kennedy that his quarantine of "navigation in international waters and air space to constitute an act of aggression propelling humankind into the abyss of a world nuclear-missile war."
The building of the Berlin Wall, Summer of 1961, Berliners awoke to a makeshift barricade separating the two sides of the city. The first barbed wire fences were rapidly followed by even more sinister concrete structures, isolating Berlin’s symbol, The Brandenberg Gate.
 The Space Race with Russia: An on going  technological war,  The Civil Rights Movement as well as the beginning of the Vietnam War all took place during John Kennedy's administration.

Second Vatican Council 

During this time of political and social upheaval preparations were underway for the twenty-first Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church was in progress. The second Vatican Council opened under Pope John XXIII on October 11, 1962, and it was closed under Pope Paul VI on  December 8, 1965.

1968 Humanae Vitae
A Sign of Contradiction
"So controversial, yet so crucial for humanity's future."
Pope Benedict XVI

Three years after the closing of the Second Vatican Council On July 25, 1968.  Paul VI issued the encyclical Humanae Vitae  on Human Life.  Subtitled "On the Regulation of Birth", the encyclical re-affirmed the traditional teaching of the Catholic Church regarding abortion, contraception, and other issues pertaining to human life. The encyclical has been controversial because of its prohibition of all forms of artificial contraception, and did not set will with the new cultural revolution taking place. Pope Paul VI did not issue any additional encyclicals in the remaining ten years of his pontificate. In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI called this topic "so controversial, yet so crucial for humanity's future." Humanae Vitae became " a sign of contradiction but also of continuity of the Church's doctrine and tradition... What was true yesterday is true also today.

Undoubtedly these historical events taking place during were a great cause of concern for all those who read the contents of the secret of Fatima at that time.  Knowing that Our Lady warned that several nations may be anhillated. It is no wonder why the popes were hesitant to make it public during years of the cold war!

We are suffering in our time the fruits of the bad seeds that were sown during these historical events. Their coinciding togethor during the same period and analyzed in the light of Our Lady's appearances at Fatima is a wonder for us who have lived through them.  The finger of God writing in Providence through an Angel in 1916 and a beautiful Lady in 1917 asking for prayers for the conversion of Commuist Russia from spreading her atheistic errors throughout the world.

We can and must take Hope

Are we doing our part to heal the rifts or are we tearing away at the wounds by our own lack of fidelity to the truth? Let us follow the simple requests of Out Lady and pave the way for the triumph of the Heart of Mary? When Mary’s Heart triumphs it will reflect the triumph for the Blessed Sacrament so ardently desired by saints such as St. Peter Julian Emyard.  He obtained permission for his order to have a feast in honor of Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament in 1868 on May 13.  Then on May 13 in 1917 the Holy Trinity sent Our Lady for her first apparition at Fatima. Is not the voice of God speaking again in His providence? The triumph of Mary’s Heart will also be the Triumph of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus! Let us pray!

Disobedience to Church Authority Tool of Devil Causing Controversy and Confusion Within Church and its Members.

In disobedience we repeat the first sin of pride by the fallen Angels and later by Adam and Eve. The video below depicts another flagrant act of disobedience another slap in the face for Christ in his passion.  The excerpt below is a portion of a homily by a Fr. Pfleger from the Chicago Archdiocese that was given on Divine Mercy Sunday April 11, 2010. Fr. Pfleger openly calls for female ordinations and for female bishops and cardinals. The Video below gives an excerpt from the homily he delivered on Mercy Sunday 2010.  The priest is seen parading back and forth in the sanctuary. In case you cannot make it out he is saying in this segment..."That's why there should be woman priests! That's why there should be married priests! That's why there should be woman Bishops and women Cardinals!"  Note some members of the congregation were holding their hands over their heads and clapping. You may view entire homily if you can stomach it by clicking on video and follow link to U-tube.
