Alleged Third Secret of Fatima Handwriting Attributed to Sister Lucy Appears to be a Forgery!

World Renown Speckin Forensic Laboratories, an international forensic firm specializing in forgeries and handwriting (famous for the JonBenet Ramsey case) states, "it is my opinion, based on the documents examined, that the Questioned Document 'Third Secret' can not be identified with the purported known writings of Sister Lucy."  (Speckin Report, p. 2)

The Bayside Prophecies 
on the Third Secret:

"I gave Lucy the Revelation as a temporary secret—as I revealed [the Third Secret] to you on two occasions. Make a concerted effort to bring its entirety to Our children on earth. The hierarchy have not listened to My counsel—thirty-two years lost in indecision and fear of exposure. The Faith is shattered for many." (locution from Our Lady to Veronica Lueken, April 29, 1992)

"How I warned and warned that Satan would enter into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome. The Third Secret, My child, is that Satan would enter into My Son's Church." - Our Lady, May 13, 1978


"Yes, Satan has gone into the highest positions in My House, but he will not triumph. In the final count the victory will be with Us, for he will only proceed as My Father deems." - Jesus, August 15, 1971

"Many cardinals, the Red Hats, have fallen, and they now mislead many of the Purple Hats, the bishops....
    "Pray for your bishops, your cardinals. Pray for your priests."
- Our Lady, April 1, 1978

"It will be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal."
- Jesus, June 1, 1978


"I counseled you at Fatima, and who gave My counsel to the world? Pride and arrogance anew! A secret was to be revealed, and who counseled and prepared the world for the onslaught of Satan into My Son's House? No one!"
- Our Lady, December 3l, 1977


"Satan was allowed to enter. Man chose to take Michael, the guardian of Faith, from My House; and the doors then swung wide open to admit the prince of darkness and his realm of corruption and evil."
- Jesus, September 28, 1977


"You will understand, My child, why Satan has entered My Son's home on earth, the Church. Because there was not enough prayer. Man talks, idly talks of worldly matters, when he should concentrate on the spiritual."
- Our Lady, December 28, 1974


"I wish at this time, My children, to repeat again the need to write, to speak, to meet with the Holy Father in Rome, and plead with him to have Lucy come forward and tell the Third Secret word for word."
- Our Lady, June 18, 1986

"Satan, Lucifer in human form, entered into Rome in the year 1972. He cut off the rule, the role of the Holy Father, Pope Paul VI. Lucifer has controlled Rome and continues this control now.*
"And I tell you now, My children, unless you pray and make My counsel known to all of the ruling fathers of the Eternal City of Rome, My Son's Church, His House, will be forced into the catacombs. A great struggle lies ahead for mankind. The eventual outcome is for good of all, for this trial in My Son's Church will be a true proving ground for all the faithful. Many latter-day saints shall rise out of the tribulation." - Our Lady, September 7, 1978

*It should be understood that Our Lady is merely expressing the horrid consequence of Satan's presence in the Vatican: the Holy Father is not a free agent and cannot do as he wills. Thus, we take serious Heaven's frequent exhortation to earnest prayer for the papacy and for the now reigning Vicar of Christ, John Paul II. Nevertheless, Our Lord's promise to be with His Church until the end remains intact. For despite this current debacle, Christ has preserved for the faithful the validity of the sacraments.


"Now this, My child, will bring much consternation from the clergy...."
Veronica - I see the picture of Jacinta 1972....But one part says:"A-C INTO, I-N-T-0, mitres 1972.... Anti-Christ into mitres 1972." - Jesus, October 2, 1989


"Because you did not prepare for Satan, whom I warned you years of earth's time before would enter into My Son's Church to do battle with His clergy—you did not prepare and guard yourselves for this onslaught.
"And now, what are the fruits of your labors: a loss of vocations, My children losing the knowledge of their Faith, all manner of sin, perversion and abominations being committed upon earth." - Our Lady, August 4, 1979


"The institution itself, as set up by Me, remains to be true....Satan has entered now with his armies in full regalia, appearing as humans. However, they are demons in disguise, and they have one ultimate aim: to try to destroy My Church, the Roman Catholic Church, with the Seat of Peter as the head."
- Jesus, March 18, 1989


"Yes, My child, even with Vatican II, it started out with the best resolves, but then Satan took over the scene. And with his agents he reached into the highest professions, the highest league of the hierarchy, until it saddens Me to say that many priests now are on the road to perdition and taking many others with them."
- Jesus, July 25, 1985


"The plan of...communism is to overthrow the rule in the Eternal City, gain control in politics in a manner to control the world. They seek to overthrow Rome, these agents of hell and atheism, My child; they seek to overthrow Rome and gain control of the power of the House of My Son throughout the world. They will subvert it from within."
- Our Lady, October 6, 1976

*It was with good reason that Our Lady specifically asked in the second part of the secret for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. Precisely because Her request has not been obeyed to date, Russia is perpetrating one of the cruelest hoaxes in history (i.e. the so-called failure and death of communism with the replacement of a free and democratic government) with its objective remaining, as always, the same: communist enslavement of the world (see also June 18th, 1992 message).

We know from Fatima historians and reliable witnesses that the real Third Secret is:

  • on a sheet of paper:  

    • Sister Lucy: On January 9, 1944, Sister Lucy wrote to Bishop da Silva: "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 is on a piece of notepaper..." (quoted by Father Joaquin Alonso, official archivist of Fatima, "Fatima 50," October 13, 1967, p. 11).  

    • Father Alonso and Cardinal Ottaviani: “Lucia tells us that she wrote it on one sheet of paper. Cardinal Ottaviani, who has read it, tells us the same thing: 'She has written on one sheet of paper (folha in Portuguese) what Our Lady told her to tell the Holy Father.'" (The Secret of Fatima: Fact and Legend, Fr. Joaquin Alonso, p. 65).;

    • Bishop Venancio:  He related that once he was by himself, he took the great envelope of the Secret and tried to look through it and see the contents. In the bishop's large envelope he discerned a smaller envelope, that of Sister Lucy, and inside this envelope an ordinary sheet of paper with margins on each side of three quarters of a centimeter. He took the trouble to note the size of everything. Thus the final Secret of Fatima was written on a small sheet of paper. (The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III, Bro. Michael of the Holy Trinity, p. 481)

  • approximately 23 lines.

The alleged "Third Secret":   



Heaven left Sister Lucy alive on earth to attest to the authenticity of the Third Secret. THIS HAS NOT BEEN DONE!

Our Lady specifically stated, "I wish at this time, My children, to repeat again the need to write, to speak, to meet with the Holy Father in Rome, and plead with him to have Lucy come forward and tell the Third Secret word for word, as I give to you each evening on My appearances upon the grounds of Bayside, and Flushing Meadows..." (Our Lady, June 18, 1986)

“But there is one incident that has appalled us all in Heaven that must be made known to mankind, because I feel in My heart for My Mother, Her great hurt and sorrow that Her Message at Fatima was not completely given to mankind. This evening I speak to you, My child Veronica, for you to tell the world that to hide a fact is often destructive. And this fact will be made known now, with or without Lucy, or others, who cannot speak out because they are under obedience to their elders.... My child and My children, this message will not be greeted gleefully by your clergy. But since Lucy has been silenced, it is necessary that the world knows the truth.  I will also send this message out through one more seer in the world, and if it is not abided by I have nothing to do but to allow the Chastisement to fall upon mankind." (Jesus, June 18, 1986)
