I noticed today that Dr. Maike Hickson has written yet another article pertaining to Fátima. She is claiming that unnamed sources of hers in the Vatican have “indirectly” told her that there is a second text.
Dr. Hickson’s continued support and promotion of the “fourth secret of Fátima” is causing grave injury to the unity of the Church.* Thus, a question for her consideration:
At what point in time did Our Lady rescind her command of January 3, 1944 to Sr. Lúcia not to reveal the meaning of the third part of the secret?

*I am here using the term “fourth secret of Fátima” to refer to an alleged second text that is said to remain covered-up by the Holy See.
Silence can be deafening and profound is the sound it makes. When Pope John XXIII read the third part of the secret in August, 1959, he “preferred silence” on the text.[i] It seems strange, almost cruel, that something so anticipated by the Catholic world would receive such treatment.[ii] We are, however, in a better position to understand John’s silence so let us listen to its echoes.
