Valentina Alazraki

Hello Everyone!

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:

We live in interesting times, a time for great saints!!

Matt Gaspers Responds

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.

An Intriguing Phenomenon and a Fatima Connection?

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.”
