There was an unfortunate oversight in the editing of On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima. The “About the Author” page was accidentally left out.
I was notified that a picture of me was placed in my Diocesan newspaper, the U.P. Catholic.
I made it up to Marquette for the Diocesan Fatima celebration. Someone snapped a photo of me whilest venerating the relics of Sts. Francisco and Jacinto Marto. I thought the photographer was taking pictures of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima….
In your charity, please pray for Dustin who is mentioned on page three. He is being ordained to the Diaconate in a week.

A relatively little-known aspect of the history of Our Lady’s apparitions in Fátima, Portugal concerns a comment made to Sr. Lúcia about a “seventh” apparition. On May 13, 1917, in her first apparition to the three shepherd children, Our Lady stated, “I have come to ask you to come here for six months in succession, on the 13th day, at this same hour. Later on, I will tell you who I am and what I want. Afterwards, I will return here yet a seventh time.”[i] Has this seventh apparition already occurred? We shall look at this matter presently.
Catholic News Service carried an article with an interview from Cardinal Bertone and the third part of the secret of Fátima.
Pity that I did not have this available prior to the publication of my book!

.- The third secret of Fatima deals with past events, but at the same time its call to conversion is always current, always up to date, said Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State emeritus.
In an interview with CNA, Cardinal Bertone spoke about the third secret of Fatima, how the decision to release the secret was made, and his memories of his three meetings with Sr. Lucia, the longest-living of the three shepherd children who had been the custodian of the secret until it was released by the Vatican at the request of Pope John Paul II.
