The below article written by Father Andre M. Greeley in his book, “The Making of the Popes,” states that the Fatima secret had to do with World War III has some credibility as you will recollect that Pope John 23 did open the door for dialogue with Communist Russia, and during the Cuban crisis it was reported that Pope John 23 intervened with helping cool Russia down. You can think what you want, but this story is more credible than all the other “leaked” out stores that pertain to the Fatima secret. In as much as we also had the beginning of the Vatican II Council, the Fatima secret could not have predicted it because it was the start of the Great Apostasy and the Antichrist system listed in the Bible.. The 5th Lateran Council forbids anyone to predict when these events will occur. However once they do occur, it would be sinful not to point it out.

Fr. Andrew M. Greeley, RIP, and the Fatima Secret
“Outspoken Catholic priest, sociologist and sometimes steamy novelist Andrew Greeley RIP
In his book, “The Making of the Popes,” 1978. Quoting Fr. Greeley
I’m especially depressed by the gloom that seems to be gripping Rome this lovely October. The death of John Paul I was a terrible tragedy, but scarcley enough to account for the pessimism. Cardinal Ursi said earlier in the week that the next pope would have much to suffer. (Ha. JP-2 had a ball as pope until he got shot) Osservatore della Domenica has an article predicting a nuclear war during the reign of the next pope, a prediction based in part of St. Malachy (which responsible scholars consider a sixteen-century forgery) and partly on a very dubious text linked with the shrine of Fatima. (The Fatima “secret” at one time was supposed to be that the world was going to end in 1960. Indeed, I remember one affluent and pious Catholic matron at a New Year’s Eve party on December 31, 1959, suggesting that we enjoy the party because it would be the last one. The world wound end before the beginning of 1961. It Didn’t)
Osservatore della Domenica doesn’t normally fall back on pseudopropecies and private revelations to fill it’s pages. Maybe the pessimism is a curial manipulation, too. Still, I will confess that right now., although maybe it’s just fatigue, I feel very pessimistic indeed.
