One of the best aspects of researching and writing my upcoming book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima was the restricted nature of the work. As my focus was strictly upon the third part of the secret, I left out questions over the 1984 consecration made by Pope St. John Paul II.
While I make no definitive statement on the matter of the consecration here or in my book, I did come across an interesting video about the consecration. The video shows Sr. Lúcia talking with a Cardinal who I believe to be Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, the retired Cardinal-Archbishop of Cebu, Philippines. Between them is Carlos Evaristo, who, given his position between them, appears to be serving as translator for the Cardinal.
