This week, the Church is engaged in the International Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. A few months ago I composed an article about Fátima and ecumenism that I would like to share with you.
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.
