Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

“On July 13th, at the end of the apparitions, when the little shepherds were asked, what happened today?, Lucia said, I can’t say everything, it’s a secret.”

Two of the three secrets were revealed in 1917, while the apparitions were still taking place. The shepherds witnessed a vision of Hell. The Virgin also called for the consecration of the world to the her Immaculate Heart, in order to avoid a war worst than the one that was already taking place. Shortly after, World War II began in 1939.

“The Virgin said that if humanity didn’t not convert by July 13, 1917, there would be a war worst than the one that was already underway.”

83 years went by before the third secret was revealed. Lucia wrote it down in 1941 but it was kept under seal in the archives at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith inside the Vatican, until the year 2000.

On May 13th of that year, during the beatification of Jacinta and Francisco, and in the presence of Sister Lucia, the pope revealed the secret.

The third secret spoke about the vision of martyrs in the twentieth century and revealed the late pontiff was destined to be one of them.

John Paul II connected the secret to the attempt on his life in 1981 at St. Peter’s Square. Exactly one year later, John Paul II visited Fatima to thank the Virgin for saving his life and placed the bullet the shooter fired in the Virgin’s crown.
