Last year, I posted an English translation of an article written by Dr. José Barreto of Lisbon, Portugal, on the writings of Fr. Edouard Dhanis concerning Fátima.
While in Fátima this past June, I noticed that there was some discussion on Fr. Dhanis on an Internet forum. I am quite happy to see this discussion taking place as I discuss Dhanis in my book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima.
I noticed that Joachim Bouflet wrote a book about Fátima entitled Fátima: 1917-2017. I have found Bouflet, generally speaking, to be a good writer and I looked forward to reading his book. I saw that he, too, has written about Fr. Dhanis (pgs. 126-132). Overall, I think he wrote well of the situation with the Flemish Jesuit. I like how he appears to acknowledge the opprobrium to which Dhanis was subjected.
For your reading pleasure, I have worked-up an English translation (by no means a polished one) of Bouflet’s discussion. I hope he does not mind that I have done so.
On Friday, June 9th (2017), I was interviewed for the Kresta in the Afternoon talk program by Dr. Paul Kengor (click ahead to the 26:15 mark).
I would also like to make a plug for Dr. Kengor’s book A Pope and a President. I have been reading it and am quite intrigued by it. With respect to my interests with Fátima, the book provides the political angle to the story. It is a bit refreshing to see things from a new light.
I was also interviewed by Bob Olson for WCAT Radio the other day. It airs this Friday but is available in advance.
