Overview

With an introduction by Pope Benedict XVI and including information previously suppressed, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Bertone, definitively reveals and explains one of the most controversial events in twentieth-century Catholicism—the 1917 apparition of the Virgin Mary at Fatima.

During World War I, three Portuguese children received a vision in which Mary, the Mother of Jesus, foretold great global turmoil. The first part of their vision—warnings about World War II, communism, and the spread of atheism—were widely publicized, but Vatican officials were hesitant to reveal the vision’s concluding images, thus creating the "secret" of Fatima. Speculation about this secret gripped many Catholics, and the aura of intrigue surrounding Fatima grew when the Church hierarchy barred the last surviving visionary from speaking publicly.

In THE LAST SECRET OF FATIMA, Cardinal Bertone, the Vatican equivalent of prime minister and a top advisor to Pope Benedict, breaks the Vatican’s official silence on the last secret. Rather than Armageddon, he claims, the final prophecy envisaged the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. Bertone argues the apparition at Fatima was a call to renewal for the Church, and he was assigned the task of promulgating this message by the Pope.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The apparition of Mary, the mother of Christ, to three children in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917 has long fascinated Roman Catholics and others intrigued by the vision's prophetic messages, particularly the so-called "Third Secret." Journalist De Carli explores the meaning of the visions and puts them in historical context in this extended interview with Bertone, the Vatican official charged with verifying the last secret. Before its release in 2000, Bertone met with the only surviving visionary, Sister Lucia, for confirmation. In subsequent meetings before her death, Bertone gained her assurance that no further secrets remained. This book also discusses the significance of the visions to the late Pope John Paul II, who believed his assassination attempt was foretold in the last secret and emphasized the visions' essential purpose of calling people to conversion. Included are a chronology, theological commentary written by Pope Benedict XVI when he was head of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the last secret's text. This guide will be of special interest to Fatima devotees. (May 6)

CARDINAL TARCISIO BERTONE is the Secretary of State for the Holy See. Prior to his current position, Bertone was Archbishop of Genoa, Italy, and during the papacy of John Paul II, he was the number-two figure in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

The book is translated by ADRIAN WALKER, an American theologian living in Europe, who has served as translator for Pope Benedict XVI's Jesus of Nazareth.

    Somewhat Informative

    Information coming directly from Cardinal Bertone and Sister Lucia is very interesting but when the book digressed into political discussions about relationships with the Muslim world it lost me.

    History needs much more

    More than the subjective value that this book has, would be needed a frontal exposition of the late Lucia's Memories with the original reports witnesses of the Fatima 1917 events. If this book satisfy the believers the same can not be said by others that know well the first original descriptions of the 'Lady' and the experiences contents of the visionary kind. Pope Benedict XVI is correct when he says that ' ion this matter ' we must take account of the cognitive and cultural limits of the seers, their human possibilities and distortions from the memory and senses, as modern sciences tell us. So, our author-biographer should taken this advice. We can accept this subjective confession but not its historical value.
