Hello Everyone! This is the second video of my series responding to Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon.
The present video begins the actual content-review of the Marshall/Gordon podcast. It covers the first twelve or so minutes of the podcast, which largely surrounds a discussion of Pope Leo XIII and the vision he had that led to his composing the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel.
Below is a transcript of the video. Please remember to watch the videos consecutively.
Hello Everyone! This post is the first entry to introduce my video series responding to Taylor Marshall and Timothy Gordon on Fátima. I announced the series here on the site recently.
In September of 2018, Marshall and Gordon made a podcast entitled Third Secret of Fatima & the Smoke of Satan in the Church. I was quite interested to see the direction in which they took the discussion. There were good points during the podcast. There were also some questionable moments.
In 2017, I had the opportunity to read Fr. Charles Theodore Murr’s bookThe Godmother: Mother Pascalina, a Feminine Tour de Force.
For those who do not know, Mother Pascalina was the right hand of Pope Pius XII. She was, arguably, the most powerful woman in the Vatican during Pius’ pontificate. There has been much written about her over the years, some good, some not so good. I do not pretend to be an expert on Mother Pascalina’s life, but I am interested in learning more about her. Enter Fr. Murr’s book.
While reading, I was struck by a quote that Fr. Murr attributed to Mother Pascalina. The two were talking about the infamous alleged private revelations at Bayside, New York. Fr. Murr attributed to Pascalina the following quote:
In the light of various ideas that arise over the years about private revelations (authentic or alleged), I think we could all learn from Mother Pascalina’s wisdom.
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.
