Remember what Cardinal Ratzinger said about Akita?
Howard Dee, former Philippine ambassador to the Vatican, stated that "Cardinal Ratzinger personally confirmed to me that these two messages, of Fatima and Akita, are essentially the same. (Inside the Vatican magazine, 1998)
And don't forget what Pope JPII said:
Published Testimony:And given JPII's highlighted quote above, it might be worth reviewing (perish the thought!) Quix's recent thread.
Pope John Paul II
in Fulda, Germany (1980)
The October 1981 issue of the German magazine Stimme des Glaubens reported on a discussion that Pope John Paul II had with a select group of German Catholics, in November of 1980. The following is a verbatim report of the discussion:1
Text of the Published Report
The Holy Father was asked, "What about the Third Secret of Fatima? Should it not have already been published by 1960?"
Pope John Paul II replied: "Given the seriousness of the contents, my predecessors in the Petrine office diplomatically preferred to postpone publication so as not to encourage the world power of Communism to make certain moves.
"On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this: if there is a message in which it is written that the oceans will flood whole areas of the earth, and that from one moment to the next millions of people will perish, truly the publication of such a message is no longer something to be so much desired."
The Pope continued: "Many wish to know simply from curiosity and a taste for the sensational, but they forget that knowledge also implies responsibility. They only seek the satisfaction of their curiosity, and that is dangerous if at the same time they are not disposed to do something, and if they are convinced that it is impossible to do anything against evil."
At this point the Pope grasped a Rosary and said: "Here is the remedy against this evil. Pray, pray, and ask for nothing more. Leave everything else to the Mother of God."
The Holy Father was then asked: "What is going to happen to the Church?"
He answered: "We must prepare ourselves to suffer great trials before long, such as will demand of us a disposition to give up even life, and a total dedication to Christ and for Christ With your and my prayer it is possible to mitigate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only thus can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church sprung from blood! This time, too, it will not be otherwise. We must be strong and prepared, and trust in Christ and His Mother, and be very, very assiduous in praying the Rosary."
What it Means
When Pope John Paul II spoke at Fulda, he had not yet been the victim of the 1981 assassination attempt. Speaking of the Third Secret of Fatima, he did not allude to anything resembling a future assassination attempt (which in 2000 the Vatican announced to be the subject of the final part of the Secret that Our Lady revealed at Fatima in 1917), but rather to imminent chastisement and worldwide tribulation.
The Holy Father implied that evil is the force behind the elements contained in the Third Secret. The themes alluded to here by the Holy Father are consistent with those considered by leading Fatima experts to be the substance of the real Third Secret of Fatima, and are discussed in detail in the article "The Real Third Secret".
1. This report was originally published in German in the October 1981 issue of Stimme des Glaubens. It is given as a verbatim report of the meeting between His Holiness John Paul II and a select group of German Catholics at Fulda during his visit to Germany the previous November. The preface to the article states, "We know the name of the reporter and also that the document is authentic." This translation was made by Rev. M. Crowdy for Approaches Magazine, edited by Mr. Hamish Fraser of Scotland. It was translated from the Italian magazine published in Rome by Father Francis Putti. Both magazines are worthy of our trust.
Why? Only because of this curiosity. I personally know two people who were told by Mother Angelica, years apart, that she sincerely believed that some day her Shrine in Hanceville would literally become oceanfront property someday. She knew about the map in Quix's thread and actually believed it, and apparently took it into consideration when she located her Shrine.
One of the two people who related this to me was a dear friend, an old Carmelite brother. He told me about this in 1991, while chatting outside the Perpetual Adoration Chapel in Haddonfield NJ at St. Rose of Lima Church. (Yes, I remember it that well! Its not something you hear every day.)The other individual is my best friend, who was doing some contract work for her in the late 1990s. He told me about this in 1999.
Take it for what its worth.
I made that fast last year..it was worth it.
Thanks for your humble invitation to this Caucus thread. I will endeavor to post fittingly in respect for your thread and your kind invite.
I’m not sure how to ping those on my ping list in a safe way but I will note here. So I won’t. They can see it on the link below.
I believe that Brian Kopp’s post is very timely and must be taken seriously. I believe that God in His mercy is using all manner of channels to alert us to what is seriously and very truly ahead.
This thread here can be used to discuss the above—actually—I’ll copy the OP and paste it into that thread so we can disturb the Caucus thread as minimally as possible.
QUAKE AND END TIMES RELATED THREADS.
MAY ALL OF GOOD HEART WITH A HEART TRULY AFTER GOD SEEK HIS FACE, HIS LOVE, HIS PROVISION, HIS SAFETY, HIS ARMS—COVERED IN THE SALVATION THAT ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS AFFORDS. MAY WE ALL KEEP OUR MINDS FIXED ON HIM AND THEREBY EXPERIENCE HIS PEACE THAT PASSES ALL UNDERSTANDING.
Thank you Dear Brother for posting this timely thread and for your vulnerable invitation of me to it.
BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE WORD OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE WAYS OF THE LORD.

I’m having trouble getting your link to the The Real Third Secret to work.
Is anyone else having trouble with it?
I believe this Roman Catholic site may offer you some affirmation for your assertions, Bro.
