Nothing gets the Vatican Press Office stirred up more than the Fatima message.

The link above is a follow up to the original story after the Vatican Press Office denied it. But why should we believe what comes out of the spin center at the Vatican? Fr. Thomas Rosica, English-speaking Vatican P.R. aide, has a distinctive m.o.: to attack (and even sue) writers and bloggers who express concern about the scandals emanating from the Vatican on an almost daily basis. His latest shotgun blast was so over the top he seemed to be foaming at the mouth:
“Often times the obsessed, scrupulous, self-appointed, nostalgia-hankering virtual guardians of faith or of liturgical practices are very disturbed, broken and angry individuals, who never found a platform or pulpit in real life and so resort to the Internet and become trolling pontiffs and holy executioners! 
“In reality they are deeply troubled, sad and angry people....We must pray for them, for their healing and conversion!”
Wow! Take that you rigid pharisees who only care about unborn babies!

When this first came out my friends and I were joking about it because we assume we are among those being called "deeply troubled, sad and angry people." This name-calling is the same strategy used by pro-aborts and homosexuals. It's called "jamming." You slam your critics instead of addressing their concerns.

That's exactly what is happening with the latest revelations about Fatima. It is becoming crystal clear that the Vatican has stonewalled for decades. As more evidence comes out, people continue to talk about it and write about it. Why? Because Mary's message to the three little shepherd children represents one of the most important events of the 20th century that still impacts us today. The Blessed Mother doesn't come down from heaven for nothing and make a miracle witnessed by 70,000 people and reported around the world. But those who express skepticism that all has been revealed must be discredited, even a personal friend of Pope Emeritus Benedict.

Frankly, after studying these articles I think it's obvious that the Vatican Press Office "doth protest too much." Their story is unraveling. I stand with the folks at 1 Peter 5 when they say, "The filtered words of the Vatican Press office do not suffice" to discredit Maike Hickson's conversation with Fr. Ingo Dollinger.

Pope Emmeritus Benedict also said this "I would say that, here too, beyond this great vision of the suffering of the Pope, which we can in the first place refer to Pope John Paul II, an indication is given of realities involving the future of the Church, which are gradually taking shape and becoming evident"

I believe he could have added to this for more clarity...........
"The Blessed Mother of God mistakenly thought Pope JP2 died in the vision She showed the children of Fatima. We clarified it for Her because he made the Consecration to Her Immaculate Heart that She had requested at Fatima and all the Bishops of the world joined him. As a result, today we are living in the Period of Peace She promised! Pope Francis sees Isis as the Apostles of Evangelization for this time."

You have to just love this: Benedict is SILENT about Amortis Latitia, and the million and one errors coming from this Papacy to date, (in fact, errors that we can hardly keep up with almost daily) but he comes out publicly for the first time on an article written by a U.S. Catholic blogger about FATIMA?? Oh, and btw, we have yet to find out the journalist who published this. Oh, and he calls Fr. Dollinger (a dear friend of his) and respected journalists LIARS? i think it may be safe to say that um.....this doesn't really sound like Benedict. It's obvious that the Vatican is on the warpath for faithful Catholic bloggers, as we've witnessed by the lovely and oh so charitable statements from Fr. Rosica. (the priest who likes to SUE Catholic bloggers) I think we may be hitting a nerve or two.

I am now keeping all the faithful Catholic bloggers in my daily Rosary.

Thanks for the insights. I have a hunch it is the possibility that our blessed Mother warned about Vatican II and the Novus Ordo Mass than anything else that is troubling certain folks in the Vatican as that would certainly discredit the entire post-conciliar experiment.

In fact Anonymous, I did read this somewhere. I do believe it was in one of the blog posts at 1Peter5, that Pope Benedict said (before he was Pope I do believe) that it had to do with 'a bad counsel and a bad Mass'. I think indeed, there is something to this.

From Rome all sorts of confusing details keep arriving about Pope Benedict XVI. Though the details vary, all point out that he died BEFORE the press office communication. And that news about this is being put off in order to give credit to the communication.

Reports of Benedict's death were a hoax. He's still very much alive.
