Without "beating around the bushes"
or formal talk we will go straight to the heart of this latest
travesty of the truth.
In the spring of 2005, miguel de Portugal was in Fátima, celebrating his real birth in 1985, 20 years previously. During this visit, he stumbled across the latest edition of Sister Lucia's Memoirs. With one quick glance at the alleged "original" handwritten text of the long ago published first and second parts of the Secret of Fátima, the spiritual warning alarms went off. What he was seeing did not look right.
The book was acquired and, upon return to home base, carefully compared with the real original handwritten text which appeared in Sr. Lucia's earlier Memoirs, Memoirs which were published when the need for a cover up and conspiracy was yet to be felt by The Vatican.
In this document we report the findings of such comparison.
We have reproduced both versions of Sr. Lucia's handwritten texts and highlighted a few items.
But first, let us look at the generalities.
(a) Those texts are supposed to be photocopies of her originals.
However, we must keep in mind that photocopies:
(1) Will always show that each line ends with the same word;
(2) The punctuation will be the same; and
(3) The handwriting will be the same.
A quick look at the Original Version and the New Version will prove to the most naive reader that they are not the same in any of the above referred to accounts.
(b) Even if The Vatican would claim that they were rewrites - which they do not - there would not be some variations in parts of the text of the New Version of the secrets while others would be exact as the Original Version.
For the specific details the reader should review:
(a) A line by line comparison presented in a Spread Sheet format. We have highlighted in red the areas where the texts differ; and
(b) The Blocks labeled A, B, C, D and E of the scanned texts. We have underlined, as examples, some of the supposedly identical phrases in both texts.
In either case, even though the reader may not understand Portuguese, it should be obvious that the text is not even the same in some cases although it is claimed that the photocopied pages are the same.

Brethren - this shows how stupid the Church Administration think the Faithful really are.
Now that you know how far those who are
pulling the strings will
go in their betrayals to God...
+ What is each one of us doing to put in practice and share the gift Heaven gave to the world through Fátima?
+ How many rosaries do we offer a day?
+ Do we pray the ViaCrucis frequently?
+ Do we frequently partake of The Sacrament of Reconciliation? Only Mary was Immaculate, the rest of us are sinners and need frequent Sacramental reconciliation with God.
+ Do we make it a practice to offer reparation to the Eucharistic Presence of Our Lord, so abandoned in all Tabernacles of the earth?
+ How about offering acts of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of His Mother?
+ Do we think that we are really special and better than this or that individual? We will only be really special when we do not feel that way!
+ Are we praying enough to spiritually assist the priests and members of the Hierarchy? If they fall, do not blame God. It is our responsibility!
+ How about praying for the murderers, rapists, child abusers, abortionists? Are we praying enough for them as Our Lord Jesus Christ clearly instructed us to do?
