Father Joaquin Alonso (left), who held doctorates in theology and philosophy from the Gregorian University in Rome and who was professor of theology in Rome, Madrid and Lisbon, was the official archivist at Fatima for 16 years, having been appointed by the Bishop of Fatima to prepare the critical and definitive study of Fatima.
He is probably the foremost expert on Fatima of our time. Yet Father Edouard Dhanis, one of the authors of the infamous, notorious and scandalous Dutch Catechism, and who made a veritable career out of trying to debunk the Fatima message, was the only Fatima “expert” mentioned by the former Cardinal Ratzinger in the June 26, 2000 document, The Message of Fatima.
Father Alonso († 1981) had many interviews with Sister Lucy, the lone surviving seer of Fatima. (She died on February 13, 2005.) He tells us that according to Sister Lucy, “The conversion of Russia is not to be limited to the return of the Russian Peoples to the Orthodox Christian religion, rejecting the Marxist atheism of the Soviets, but rather, it refers purely, plainly and simply to the total, integral conversion of Russia to the one true Church of Christ, the Catholic Church.”
The Deceptive Announcement of June 26, 2000
The “New” Third Secret
In Chapter 8 we discussed how, in keeping with the Church’s new post-conciliar “orientation,” the Vatican Secretary of State has established a “Party Line” on Fatima according to which a “new” version of the Fatima Message has been substituted for the authentic Message, which is at odds with “ecumenism,” “dialogue,” “interreligious dialogue,” the Vatican-Moscow Agreement, and the “updating” of the Church in general, with all the disastrous results these compromises and departures from Catholic Tradition have produced.
