Sister Lucy wrote to Bishop da Silva on January 9, 1944:
I have written what you asked me; God willed to try me a little, but finally this was indeed His will: [the text] is sealed in an envelope and it [the sealed envelope] is in the notebooks …3
Before a little wooden safe placed on a table and bearing the inscription ‘Secretum Sancti Officii’ (Secret of the Holy Office), the journalist, Robert Serrou questioned the Mother, Pasqualina : ‘Mother, what is in this little safe?’ Pasqualina, answered: ‘The third Secret of Fatima is in there …’
The Third secret of Fatima was written on January 4 1944.
Text in Portuguese:
Sister Lucy wrote 2 copies of the Third Secret and
sent them to the Bishop da Silva, one was in the envelope,
the other inside a notebook. 1
Agora vou revelar o terceiro fragmento do segredo; Esta parte é a apostasia na Igreja!
Nossa Senhora mostrou-nos uma vista do um indivi- duo que eu descrevo como o
‘ Santo Padre ‘, em frente de uma multidão que estava louvando-o. Mas havia uma diferença com um verdadeiro
Santo Padre, o olhar do demonio, êste tinha os olhos do mal. Então depois de alguns momentos vimos
o mesmo Papa entrando a uma igreja, mas esta igreja era a igreja do inferno, não há modo
para descrever a fealdade dêsse lugar, parecia como uma fortaleza feita de cimento cinzento,
com ângulos quebrados e janelas semelhantes a olhos, tinha un bico no telhado do edificio.
Em seguida levantamos a vista para Nossa Senhora que nos disse Vistes a apostasia na Igreja,
esta carta pode ser aberta por O Santo Padre, mas deve ser anunciada depois de Piu XII e antes de 1960.
No reinado de Juan Pablo II a pedra angular da tumba de Pedro deve ser removida e transferida para Fatima.
Porque o Dogma da fé não é conservado em Roma, sua autoridade será removida e entregada a Fatima.
A catedral de Roma deve ser destruida e uma nova construida em Fatima. Se 69 semanas depois de que esta ordem é anunciada,
Roma continua sua abominação, a cidade será destruida. Nossa Senhora disse-nos que êsto está escrito, Daniel 9 24-25 e Mateus 21 42-44
Translation to English:
Now I will reveal the third part of the secret; This part is the apostasy in the Church!
Our Lady showed us a vision of someone who i describe as the ‘ Pope ‘,
standing in front of a praising multitude. But there was a difference with a real Pope, the evil
look, this one had eyes of evil. Then after a few moments we saw the same Pope entering
a church, but this church was like the church of hell, there is no way to describe the ugliness of this place,
it seemed like a fortress made of gray cement, with broken angles and windows like eyes,
there was a beak on top of the building. We then looked up at Our Lady who said to us
you have seen the apostasy in the Church, this message can be opened by The Holy Father,
but must be announced after Pius XII and before 1960. During the pontificate of John Paul II
the cornerstone from Peter’s tomb must be removed and transferred to Fatima.
Because the Dogma of faith is not preserved in Rome, her authority will be removed and given to Portugal.
The cathedral of Rome must be destroyed and a new one built in Fatima. If 69 weeks after this command is announced
Rome continues it’s abomination, the city will be destroyed.
Our Lady told us this is written, Daniel 9 24-25 and Mathew 21 42-44
Mathew 21: 42-44
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures,
The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner:
this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you,
and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:
but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
Daniel 9: 24-25
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression,
and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
