Summary: Christopher Ferrara continues to explain the points made by Antonio Socci in his new book The Fourth Secret of Fatima.

Acclaimed Italian Journalist Challenges Cardinal Bertone on the Third Secret: Part 1

Experts: Christopher A. Ferrara (Catholic attorney and author; President: American Catholic Lawyers Assoc.), John Vennari (Editor: Catholic Family News); on Truth in Crisis television program, #204 (30 minutes).

Summary: On June 26, 2000, the Vatican released a portion of the Third Secret claiming that it was a prediction of the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II in 1981. Antonio Socci, an acclaimed Italian journalist and television personality, originally sided with the Vatican’s interpretation of the Third Secret; but upon closer investigation of this matter the evidence led him to the same conclusion as to what Father Nicholas Gruner and the Fatima Center has been saying all along — that there is more to the Third Secret than what the Vatican has released.



Mr. Ferrara explores and analyzes the continuing deceptive public declarations of Cardinal Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State, regarding the Third Secret of Fatima, demonstrating again and again that the Cardinal is deliberately hiding part of the Third Secret and that the Cardinal's own statements on Italian TV acknowledge de facto that there's more to the Third Secret than what he insists is all there is.

An investigation into the private
campaign of the Vatican Secretariat of State
to conceal the words of the Virgin Mary in the
Third Secret of Fatima

This book is the first full-length examination of the grounds for rejecting Cardinal Bertone's version of the facts in the Third Secret controversy. The Cardinal's own statements, including his book and radio and television broadcasts in 2007, are shown to demonstrate beyond any doubt that a text of the Secret has been suppressed, evidently under an unjustifiable mental reservation that the text is not "authentic."


Among other things, the evidence presented here demonstrates that:

  • The Secret has two parts, as Pope Pius XII's own investigator revealed, one which contains the words of the Virgin that are not found in the published vision.


  • There are two different Third Secret envelopes, each bearing its own warning, in Sister Lucia's handwriting, that by "express order of Our Lady" the envelope is not to be opened before 1960.


  • There are two different locations for these envelopes: the Holy Office archives for one, the papal apartment for the other.


  • The text of the Secret was inside an outer envelope bearing dictation by Pope John XXIII and kept in the papal apartment — an envelope the Secretary of State has never produced even though he now concedes that the envelope exists.


  • There are two different Third Secret translations in Italian, neither of which has been made public by the Vatican.


  • Three different Popes since 1959 read texts of the Secret on two different dates — years apart — even though the Vatican's official explanation claims there was only a single reading by each Pope.

And yet the Catholic faithful are still being asked to believe that there is only one text of the Third Secret, and that the Virgin had nothing to say about the meaning of the ominous vision she herself confided to the Fatima seers. Whoever still believes this will have no good reason to continue believing after reading this book. And, given the absolute urgency of the Secret for every inhabitant of the planet, the case presented here should motivate Catholics and non-Catholics alike to demand that the Vatican reveal the hidden words of the Virgin to the whole world — before it is too late.

Overview: Socci Accuses Bertone

Expert: Antonio Socci (Italian journalist and author of Il Quarto Segreto di Fatima [“The Fourth Secret of Fatima”] published in Italy in November 2006).

Summary: On May 12, 2007, Antonio Socci, one of Italy’s most respected Catholic intellectuals, published in his widely read column this astonishing challenge to Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State: “Dear Cardinal Bertone: Who — between you and me — is deliberately lying?” Socci was responding to the Cardinal’s suggestion, in a book the Cardinal had published days before, that Socci has misled the Catholic faithful in his own book, Il Quarto Segreto di Fatima (The Fourth Secret of Fatima).
