Benedict XVI insists: The Secret of Fatima has already been fully published

2016-05-23

The third secret of Fatima is making the news headlines once again.

Last week, some media and web experts on rumors collected in an interview from onepeterfive.com with Benedict XVI theologian friend, Ingo Dollinger.

The elderly theologian assures that in 2000, the then Cardinal Ratzinger said that the secret of Fatima had not been fully published, as it allegedly mentioned a future of "bad Council with a bad Mass,” a criticism expressed by the Second Vatican Council and the subsequent liturgical reform.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has broken his silence to deny it radically.

Benedict XVI says in a statement that he "never spoke with Professor Dollinger about Fatima” and clearly states that attributed to Professor Dollinger on the subject phrases are "pure inventions, absolutely untrue.” Moreover, Ratzinger insists that "the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete”.

With some regularity, some sectors continue to claim that the third secret of Fatima has yet to be published.

One reason is that the Pope emeritus Benedict XVI said that during his trip to Portugal, the vision they had on the persecution of Christians continues.

Benedict XVI
May 11, 2010
"... it is true that, in addition to the moment indicated in the vision, there is a mention, there is the need for a passion of the Church, which naturally is reflected in the person of the Pope, yet the Pope stands for the Church and thus it is the sufferings of the Church that are announced.”

Moreover, John Paul II decided to publish the third secret of Fatima in 2000, when one of the oldest, Sister Lucia was still alive.

If it had not been fully published, perhaps she would have said something. However, she did not. She died five years later without insinuating anything.
