Hi Everyone! I have made a short supplemental video for my MOOC course on Fátima. The video is about how Sr. Lúcia came to fulfill Our Lady’s command to write down the third part of the secret:
In their 2013 biography Um caminho sob o olhar de Maria, the Carmelite Sisters of the St. Teresa convent in Coimbra (Portugal) authenticated Sr. Lúcia’s May 12, 1982 letter to Pope John Paul II.
Matthew Hoffman has interviewed me for Catholic World Report. The topic is my book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima.
This is one interview that you are not going to want to miss!
I would like to provide to the general public the text that I had prepared for the debate. The event was a little late and so some things had to be shortened, unfortunately. Nevertheless, I present what I had prepared, with some slight editing for online format.
The other day I came across an old interview with Cardinal Ratzinger that was conducted by the Italian journalist Orazio La Rocca in May, 2000. It was published in La Repubblica on May 19.
Not a week prior to the publication of this interview, Cardinal Sodano had announced the impending publication of the third part of the secret of Fátima. La Rocca took the opportunity to speak with Ratzinger about the matter.
Marco Tosatti was kind to help me in the research with my book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima. Today I saw this video:
If your spoken Italian needs brushing up, thankfully, YouTube’s closed caption feature is working (albeit not at 100%).
Tosatti advances the 20-25 lines story, among other things. I hope he has had the opportunity to read my book…. I understand that he published a book back in April entitled Fatima e il segreto non svelato.
