Making its rounds on the Internet is the intervention of the Mexican journalist Valentina Alazraki at the Holy See’s conference on The Protection of Minors in the Church. The Spanish original can be found here. A video of Alazraki delivering her intervention is on YouTube. A working English translation is available.
I noted that Alazraki made a reference to the words of Pope Benedict XVI in May, 2010 about sin existing within the Church. Here she is quoting him (Spanish):
This citation was poignant. Pope Benedict’s remark was in direct response to a question from Fr. Lombardi, then director of the Holy See’s press office, about the application of the third part of the secret of Fatima to the sexual abuse of minors.
For her other strong remarks, especially about journalists being the “worse enemies” (peores enemigos) of the Bishops, Alazraki received accolades from some of her colleagues:
Hello Everyone! I continue to be busy and have recently received some news of import to me that I might be sharing with you soon.
I discovered some rather fascinating videos available on the Internet about Fátima. They are in Portuguese, so those with a facility in the language will find these to be very enlightening. Go check them out!
Hello Everyone! Well, little did I think I’d have to write two articles of a similar theme in less than 24 hours but it looks like I am!
Matt Gaspers of Catholic Family News has responded to my July article Gaspers’ Interpretation of Fatima. He has done so in an article for CFN that was published on September 3. Gaspers was kind to notify me via Facebook of the article and I thank him for this gesture. We have subsequently spoken briefly also via Facebook.
“When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.”
On July 13, 1917, Our Lady predicted to the three seers of Fatima that there would be an unknown light that would illumine the sky. This sign, she further said, was to indicate that God was about to punish the world for its crimes.
On July 2, 2018, the publication Catholic Family News issued an article on the organization’s web site entitledSexual Abuse and the Third Secret—A Timely Reminder. The article was written by the managing editor of Catholic Family News, Matthew Gaspers. Among other aims, the article seeks to connect the third part of the secret of Fátima with some recent news on allegations of sexual abuse.
Hello Everyone! Spirit Daily linked to my Fátima and Apostasy article and a lot of attention has been drawn to the article. Michael Lewis issued a clarification under his article, and I also noted that Terry Nelson of Abbey Roads web site wrote a blog post in reply.
Several months ago, an elderly Fátima scholar was discussing with me the theology presented within Our Lady’s message at Fátima, making a distinction between “high” Fátima theology and “low” Fátima theology. In regard to current events within the Church—particularly those involving Pope Francis—I believe such a distinction can provide some instructive insight.
