Benedict XVI denies latest rumours about Fatima ‘secret’

The retired pope responded to claims made in a blog via a Vatican statement

Sixteen years after the Vatican released the text of the so-called Third Secret of Fatima, rumours cyclically arise claiming that the Vatican still is keeping part of Mary’s message to three children in Fatima, Portugal, secret.

The Vatican press office on May 21 took the unusual step of publishing a communique with reaction from Benedict XVI, who — as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith — oversaw the secret’s publication in 2000 and personally wrote a commentary on it. He insisted at the time that the complete text had been published.

In mid-May, a blog published a story claiming a German priest, Fr Ingo Dollinger, said that then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had told him soon after the publication in 2000 that part of the message was still secret.

The Vatican communique said: “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.’"

    there is speculation also that St Lucia was replaced with an imposter and the real St. Lucia was silenced and perhaps killed by masonic elements within our church.
    It would break my heart if the church was infiltrated by Masonic
    Also I have seen critisims of our Rosary, whereby some are saying that the Rosary of St. Dominic was 150 beads of consecutive Hail Mary’s and that we should refer to her as Our Lady of the Rosary in the prayer instead of Mary as this is a masionic name. They claim that the rosary was corrupted into a 5 decades like the masonic 5 pointed star. Could you do an article on this as i find it troubling?
