Fr. Joaquin Alonso, Chief Archivist of Fatima, insisted in1980 that Fr. Formigao was correct and that the word "alminhas" in the Fatima Rosary Prayer does not refer to "all souls" but to the Poor Souls in Purgatory. Even Frere Michel acknowledges this.

Footnote #378 from Frere Michel of the Holy Trinity's The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. 1: Science and the Facts

(378) Let us point out that Father Alonso believed the theological interpretation of Canon Formigao could be justified, by insisting on the ordinary meaning of the word “alminhas”. According to him, the word “alminhas” settles the question: it refers to the souls in Purgatory. (Fatima, escuela de oracion, p. 105; 1980.)

Who was Fr. Joaquin Alonso? He was the chief archivist of Fatima for 16 years and wrote a monumental work on the Fatima Message entitled, Fatima Texts and Critical Studies consists of 24 volumes and contains 5,396 documents. This text was withheld from publication, after it was completed in 1975, by the bishop of Leiria-Fatima, Alberto Cosme do Amaral. Since then, only TWO of the 24 volumes have been published and these two have been heavily edited. Why? Notice that the book, Fatima, escuela de oracion (Fatima, School of Prayer), in which he made the judgment about the Fatima Rosary Prayer was published in 1980, long after the "clarifications" of the 1940s. Also, question, Why is "the souls in purgatory" a "theological interpretation," rather than just a rendering of what the 3 Children of Fatima actually said and referred to when they were interviewed about this question in September 1917? What is going on here? 

See Sister Lucy Truth's original finding on this matter at:


  1. That rendering makes no logical sense. ALL SOULS in Purgatory go to Heaven.

    1. The original prayer is clearly praying for the relief of the punishment suffered by the Poor Souls. It is especially praying those who are "most abandoned," meaning those who suffer and have no one to pray for them. The original prayer was "Oh my Jesus forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, relieve the Poor Souls in Purgatory especially the most abandoned."
