There has been a bit of a dust up in the last days about the Third Secret of Fatima. Was the whole of the Third Secret truly released? Some say that it wasn’t.
One blog recently posted some claims about what Joseph Ratzinger told a German professor about the Third Secret.
Now it seems that Benedict XVI has said he never told anyone that the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima in the year 2000 was incomplete, and he confirmed the document was published in its totality.
A Communiqué was published Saturday by the Holy See Press Office on various articles regarding the Third Secret of Fatima:
“Several articles have appeared recently, including declarations attributed to Professor Ingo Dollinger according to which Cardinal Ratzinger, after the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima (which took place in June 2000), had confided to him that the publication was not complete,” – the Communiqué reads – “In this regard, Pope emeritus Benedict XVI declares ‘never to have spoken with Professor Dollinger about Fatima’, clearly affirming that the remarks attributed to Professor Dollinger on the matter ‘are pure inventions, absolutely untrue’, and he confirms decisively that ‘the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete’.”
Take that for what it’s worth.
