Still Lookin' For the Light Switch? Cardinal Bertone Seemed to Have a Night Light in the Room of "Diabolical Disorientation" When He and "Sister Lucy" asserted that there was NO Distinct Third Secret, but only a Vision that Portrayed the Second Secret.
No more need to Cut and Paste, She's Just Fake!
Here is a part of the text presented by Cardinal Bertone --- at the time, Vatican Secretary of State --- in his official "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Commentary on the Message of Fatima." He says in this that the Third Secret is really no more than a Vision that symbolically portrays the contents of the Second Secret. As presented by the, by no means "disoriented" Cardinal Bertone, "Sister Lucy" fulfills her "mission" --- in the most PERVERSE WAY IMAGINABLE --- by denying that there IS ANY THIRD SECRET. The most characteristic moment in the life of the Sole Messenger of the Third Secret is TO DENY THAT THERE IS A THIRD SECRET! Silly old fuddy duddy Catholic world who believed that Our Lady meant to convey something distinct to us, thinking for all those decades it was being held back from us. Lame John XXIII who said that, "This is not for my pontificate." Paul VI and John Paul II put it aside even though it was ONLY a vision describing EXACTLY what was already in the Second Secret, that had been released some 60 years before. So, whereas the First Secret and the Second Secret HAD distinct messages to the world, the Third Secret does not; in fact, it is just a pious illustration of the content of the Second Secret. NOTHING TO SEE HERE! Looks like we changed "Sister Lucys" just to keep from public release a holy card illustration of the Second Secret that anyone could have read back in the 1940s.
Here is the relevant part of Cardinal Bertone's text written in 2000:
Sister Lucia had already given an indication for interpreting the third part of the “secret” in a letter to the Holy Father, dated 12 May 1982:
“The third part of the secret refers to Our Lady's words: ‘If not [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated' (13-VII-1917).
The third part of the secret is a symbolic revelation, referring to this part of the Message, conditioned by whether we accept or not what the Message itself asks of us: ‘If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, etc.'.
Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors. And if we have not yet seen the complete fulfilment of the final part of this prophecy, we are going towards it little by little with great strides. If we do not reject the path of sin, hatred, revenge, injustice, violations of the rights of the human person, immorality and violence, etc.
And let us not say that it is God who is punishing us in this way; on the contrary it is people themselves who are preparing their own punishment. In his kindness God warns us and calls us to the right path, while respecting the freedom he has given us; hence people are responsible”.(5)
Just like a magic act, the "ball" of the Third Secret, is shuffled around under the cups by Cardinal Bertone and "Sister Lucy" and then IT DISAPPEARS. Boiled down, what the Vatican said and what "Sister Lucy" EXPLICITLY AFFIRMED was that there was no Third Secret. A mere illustration is not a secret.
