About the Second Vatican Council
Its Clear Relation with the Third
Secret of Fatima
The purpose of Part II of this two-part document (1) is to illustrate close
relation of the purpose and intent of the Second Vatican Council to the
Third Part of the Secret of Fatima.
Quoting from Part I of this two-part document:
Second Vatican Council was called to order by H.H. John XXIII on
October 11, 1962 and was concluded by H.H. Paul VI on September 8,
1965. Its intent was to open the proverbial windows of the church and
let some fresh air in. Our interpretation of said intent was to salvage what was left of the
which had turned into an idolatrous pagan religion.
We stated in an earlier document published on February 11, 2000, (2)
If we stand back and take a good look at the events in the Roman
Catholic Church and the world since H.H. John XXIII ascended to the
Throne of Peter, one can almost guess with great certainty the contents
of what they
to be the full Third Part of the Secret of Fatima
* H.H. John XXIII and H.H. Paul VI
tried to prepare the Church, by means of the Second Vatican Council,
for what they knew was to come .
* H.H. Paul VI declared that the smoke of satan had entered in the
Church and quickly abrogated the canon requiring official approval for
the publication of documents relating to Marian Apparitions which were
not yet approved by the Church Administration. By doing so, he opened
the doors for Heaven to speak freely and undisturbed to the faithful in
spite of the fact that the enemies of God were already well entrenched
within the Hierarchy.
* H.H. John Paul II, symbolically wrapping up the work of John XXIII
and Paul VI, thus the name John Paul,
did not stop traveling the world, personally Evangelizing it. He knew
how serious the situation was, how little time is left and that most of
the clergy and Hierarchy continues to occupy itself with worldly
matters while neglecting the flock.
If one studies all Encyclicals published by H.H. John XXIII, Paul VI
and John Paul II (up to his 10th Encyclical) and try to visualize what
the Roman Pontiffs were attempting to remedy with most of them, one
would then come to know what they believed
to be the
full Third Part
of the Secret of
Therefore, for satan's plan to continue, as it was intended, a great
effort has been made to denounce the Vatican Council II and blame all
on it - openly or subtlety.
The backdrop of this document will be the Vatican Council II Opening
Speech delivered by H.H. John XXIII on October 11, 1962 (4).
It should be noted at this point that said opening speech was published
by the Vatican (4a)(4b)
only in Latin, Italian
and Portuguese - the mother
tongue of Fatima.
For the convenience of the reader we will reproduce below the English
translation of the full text of the speech, highlighting in bold script
what we consider relevant key portions. Our comments will be
interspersed within the text using italic script.
We realize that the text contains many points that could be discussed
and commented upon, however, we are focusing on the items that may have
a relation to the Secret of Fatima.
Opening Speech to
the Vatican II Council
Pope John XXIII
October 11, 1962
Mother Church rejoices that...
I. Mother Church rejoices that,
by the singular gift of Divine
Providence, the longed-for day has finally dawned when - under the
auspices of the virgin Mother of God, whose maternal dignity is
commemorated on this feast - the Second Vatican Ecumenical
being solemnly opened here beside St. Peter's tomb.
Notice that the
Holy Name of Mary appears in the first sentence. It is
obvious what he has in mind. That is further underscored by the
exclusivity granted to the Portuguese (the language of Fatima) as we
The Ecumenical Councils of the Church
1. The Councils - both the twenty ecumenical ones and the numberless
others, also important, of a provincial or regional character which
have been held down through the years - all prove clearly the vigour of
the Catholic Church and are recorded as shining lights in her annals.
2. In calling this vast assembly of bishops, the latest and humble
successor to the Prince of the
Apostles who is addressing you intended
to assert once again the magisterium (teaching authority), which is
unfailing and endures until the end of time, in order that this
magisterium, taking into account the errors, the requirements, and the
opportunities of our time, might be presented in exceptional form to
all men throughout the world.
We can easily discern the obvious intent
of "letting some air and light
in" - a period of deep introspection to then proceed to make the
necessary amends.... while keeping in mind the concept of "end of time"
(although the Pope incorrectly referred to "the end of time", rather
than "the end of these times").
3. It is but natural that in opening this Universal Council we should
like to look to the past and to listen to its voices whose echo we like
to hear in the memories and the merits of the more recent and ancient
Pontiffs, our predecessors. These are
solemn and venerable voices,
throughout the East and the West, from the fourth century to the Middle
Ages, and from there to modern times, which have handed down
witness to those Councils. They are voices which proclaim in perennial
fervour the triumph of that divine and human institution, the Church of
Christ, which from Jesus takes its name, its grace, and its meaning.
"...from the fourth
century to the Middle Ages"? Do note that he is
clearly highlighting the moment when the Church went off the track and
became the Imperial Church as the beginning of the errors needed to be
taken into account.
4. Side by side with these motives for spiritual joy, however, there
has also been for more than nineteen centuries a cloud of sorrows and
of trials. Not without reason did the ancient Simeon announce to
the mother of Jesus, that prophecy which has been and still is true:
"Behold this child is set for the fall and the resurrection of many in
Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted" (Lk. 2:34). And
Jesus Himself, when He grew up, clearly outlined the manner in which
the world would treat His person down through the succeeding centuries
with the mysterious words: "He who hears you, hears me" (Ibid. 10:16),
and with those others that the same Evangelist relates: "He who is not
with me is against me and he who does not gather with me scatters"
Do note that in
this case - when accounting for sorrows and trials - he
does take into account the full nineteen centuries and not only the
post Constantine fifteen century period.
5. The great problem confronting the
world after almost two thousand
years remains unchanged. Christ is ever resplendent as the
history and of life. Men are either
with Him and His Church, and then
they enjoy light, goodness, order, and peace. Or else they are without
Him, or against Him, and deliberately opposed to His Church, and then
they give rise to confusion, to bitterness in human relations, and to
the constant danger of fratricidal wars.
Here John XXIII
shows a very selective memory or does not want to "show
his hand" so early in the proverbial game. Who could be guiltier
of "fratricidal war" than the "Christian" Crusaders, who, with
Blessing of Rome, pillaged and plundered Constantinople while
slaughtering all Christians in sight? How could the organization John
XXIII heads be "His Church" when it has slaughtered anyone who would
oppose the dictatorial powers of his predecessors? [May those who
believe we are John XXIII-philes take note that he is not exempt from
severe criticism when it is called for.]
6. Ecumenical Councils, whenever they are assembled, are a solemn
celebration of the union of Christ and His Church, and hence lead to
the universal radiation of truth, to the proper guidance of individuals
in domestic and social life, to the strengthening of spiritual energies
for a perennial uplift toward real and everlasting goodness.
7. The testimony of this extraordinary magisterium of the Church in the
succeeding epochs of these twenty centuries of Christian history stands
before us collected in numerous and imposing volumes, which are the
sacred patrimony of our ecclesiastical archives, here in Rome and in
the more noted libraries of the entire world.
The Origin and Reason for the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council
1. As regards the initiative for the great event which gathers us here,
it will suffice to repeat as historical documentation our personal
account of the first sudden bringing up in our heart and lips of the
simple words, "Ecumenical Council." We uttered those words in the
presence of the Sacred College of Cardinals on that memorable January
25, 1959, the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, in the
dedicated to him. It was completely
unexpected, like a flash of
heavenly light, shedding sweetness in eyes and hearts. And at
time it gave rise to a great fervour throughout the world in
expectation of the holding of the Council.
It seems that Mary
helped him understand the purpose and meaning of
such "heavenly flash" on August 17, 1959 when, according to the
Cardinal Bertone's book on Fatima (5) : "Alfredo Cardinal
Ottaviani, brought the envelope containing the Third Secret to the
papal apartments, where John XXIII opened it..." Of course,
believe what we read about this in Bertone's book because it is
coherent with what we know and
certainly not because it was in a book,
allegedly written by a Cardinal and Blessed by Benedict XVI.
2. There have elapsed three years of laborious preparation, during
which a wide and profound examination was made regarding modern
conditions of faith and religious practice, and of Christian and
especially Catholic vitality.
3. These years have seemed to us a first sign, an initial gift of
4. Illuminated by the light of this
Council, the Church - we confidently
trust - will become greater in spiritual riches and gaining the
of new energies therefrom, she will look to the future without fear. In
fact, by bringing herself up to date where required, and by the wise
organization of mutual co-operation, the
Church will make men,
families, and peoples really turn their minds to heavenly things.
minds to heavenly things" as opposed to what had become
the practice of Catholicism (not its "teaching" but its "practice")
which had become closer to Santeria or even Voo Doo - something that
can still be readily seen in many places in allegedly "Super Catholic"
5. And thus the holding of the Council becomes a motive for
wholehearted thanksgiving to the Giver of every good gift, in order to
celebrate with joyous canticles the glory of Christ our Lord, the
glorious and immortal King of ages and of peoples.
The Opportunity to Hold the Council
1. The opportuneness of holding the Council is, moreover, venerable
brothers, another subject which it is useful to propose for your
consideration. Namely, in order to render our Joy more complete, we
wish to narrate before this great assembly our assessment of the happy
circumstances under which the Ecumenical Council commences.
2. In the daily exercise of our
pastoral office, we sometimes have to
listen, much to our regret, to voices of persons who, though burning
with zeal, are not endowed with too much sense of discretion or
measure. In these modern times they can see nothing but prevarication
and ruin. They say that our era, in comparison with past eras,
getting worse, and they behave as though they had learned nothing from
history, which is, none the less, the teacher of life. They behave as
though at the time of former Councils everything was a full triumph for
the Christian idea and life and for proper religious liberty.
3. We feel we must disagree with
those prophets of gloom, who are
always forecasting disaster, as though the end of the world were at
This is a clear
message that the end of the world is not at hand and
that in these modern times, just as before, most of what can be seen is
prevarication and ruin. It is really a message of hope which, using
common American English slang, states: "We are up to our necks in
alligators, but, if we finally get our act together, by learning from
history, there is indeed hope." What the poor man maybe had not
realized was that it was too late to stop what was to come, but, the
suffering could certainly be mitigated by letting "some fresh" air in.
4. In the present order of things,
Divine Providence is leading us to a
new order of human relations which, by men's own efforts and
beyond their very expectations, are directed
toward the fulfillment of
God's superior and inscrutable designs. And everything, even
differences, leads to the greater good of the Church.
Read: Our function is not to glorify
(auto-sanctify) ourselves; our
function is to serve God so that His superior and Inscrutable designs
5. It is easy to discern this reality
if we consider attentively the
world of today, which is so busy with politics and controversies in the
economic order that it does not find time to attend to the care of
spiritual reality, with which the Church's magisterium is concerned.
Such a way of acting is certainly not right, and must justly be
disapproved. It cannot be denied, however, that these new conditions of
modern life have at least the advantage of having eliminated those
innumerable obstacles by which, at one time, the sons of this world
impeded the free action of the Church. In
fact, it suffices to leaf
even cursorily through the pages of ecclesiastical history to note
clearly how the Ecumenical Councils themselves, while constituting a
series of true glories for the Catholic Church, were often held to the
accompaniment of most serious difficulties and sufferings because of
the undue interference of civil authorities. The princes of
indeed, sometimes in all sincerity, intended thus to protect the
Church. But more frequently this occurred not without spiritual damage
and danger, since their interest therein was guided by the views of a
selfish and perilous policy.
It should read: "...with which the Church's magisterium
been concerned" ....
If they had
been sincerely concerned with what Jesus Christ intended,
the "undue interference" of civil authorities would not have been a
problem as it was in France, for example (6). We must - once
and a thousand times if necessary - remind all that John Bosco launched
a major Religious Order from Italy in the 19th Century with the
complicity of the Italian Minister who could be labeled "Mr.
AntiClericalism" while, at the same time Bosco had to fight the Roman
Curia to approve it. (7)
6. In this regard, we confess to you
that we feel most poignant sorrow
over the fact that very many bishops, so dear to us are noticeable here
today by their absence, because they are imprisoned for their
faithfulness to Christ, or impeded by other restraints. The
them impels us to raise most fervent prayer to God. Nevertheless, we
see today, not without great hopes and to our immense consolation, that
the Church, finally freed from so
many obstacles of a profane nature
such as trammeled her in the past, can from this Vatican Basilica, as
if from a second apostolic cenacle, and through your intermediary,
raise her voice resonant with majesty and greatness.
Exactly what did he
expect? "Faithfulness to Christ" does not mean
meddling in local politics or preaching revolt from the pulpit. Even
illuminated John XXIII could not intellectually process the fact that
the Romans did not interfere with Jesus Ministry - as a matter of fact,
if anything it was welcome for He was preaching Peace and submission to
the legitimate authorities.
Main Objective of the Council: The Defense and Advancement of Doctrine
1. The greatest concern of the
Ecumenical Council is this: that the
sacred deposit of Christian doctrine should be guarded and taught more
2. That doctrine embraces the whole of man, composed as he is of body
and soul. And, since he is a pilgrim on this earth, it commands him to
tend always toward heaven.
John XXIII appears
to have not yet realized that what needed to be
taught more efficaciously was the Holy Word of God. The Evangelization
failed - from the 4th Century on - because teaching the Church doctrine
became their objective at the expense of the Supreme and Holy Word of
God - even in its adulterated form (8).
3. This demonstrates how our mortal life is to be ordered in such a way
as to fulfill our duties as citizens of earth and of heaven, and thus
attain the aim of life as established by God. That is, all men, whether
taken singly or as united in society, today have the duty of tending
ceaselessly during their lifetime toward the attainment of heavenly
things and to use, for this purpose only, the earthly goods, the
employment of which must not prejudice their eternal happiness.
Hallelujah! If all
efforts of the Church Administration could be
effectively directed to that end, we would be transported to Paradise
in the proverbial "blink of the eye". Unfortunately, the
"Princes" of the Church are not about to give up their Princely life,
with its very worldly benefits (9).
4. The Lord has said: "Seek first the kingdom of Cod and his justice"
(Mt. 6:33). The word "first" expresses the direction in which our
thoughts and energies must move. We must not, however, neglect the
other words of this exhortation of our Lord, namely: "And all these
things shall be given you besides" (Ibid. ). In reality, there always
have been in the Church, and there are still today, those who, while
seeking the practice of evangelical perfection with all their might, do
not fail to make themselves useful to society. Indeed, it from their
constant example of life and their charitable undertakings that all
that is highest and noblest in human society takes its strength and
5. In order, however, that this doctrine may influence the numerous
fields of human activity, with reference to individuals, to families,
and to social life, it is necessary
first of all that the Church should
never depart from the sacred patrimony of truth received from the
Fathers. But at the same time she must ever look to the present,
new conditions and new forms of life introduced into the modern world,
which have opened new avenues to the Catholic apostolate.
Do notice - Now the
"truth" came from the Fathers.... not from Jesus or
the Sacred Scriptures. And even John XXIII still wondered why God has
allowed them to be persecuted over and over again throughout the
6. For this reason, the Church has
not watched inertly the marvellous
progress of the discoveries of human genius, and has not been backward
in evaluating them rightly. But, while following these developments,
she does not neglect to admonish men so that, over and above
sense - perceived things - they may raise their eyes to God, the Source
all wisdom and all beauty. And may they never forget the most
command: "The Lord thy God shall thou worship, and Him only shall thou
serve" (Mt. 4:10; Lk. 4:8), so that it may happen that the fleeting
fascination of visible things should impede true progress.
Then we ask, if you
recognize God as the Source of all wisdom and
beauty... Why in, His Holy Name we ask, don't you and your Princely
predecessors obey Him?
and Hypatia of Alexandria (10) could answer that.
How Should the Truth Be Promoted
1. The manner in which sacred
doctrine is spread, this having been
established, it becomes clear how much is expected from the Council in
regard to doctrine.
2. That is, the Twenty-first Ecumenical Council, which will draw upon
the effective and important wealth of juridical, liturgical, apostolic,
and administrative experiences, wishes to transmit the doctrine, pure
and integral, without any attenuation or distortion, which throughout
twenty centuries, notwithstanding difficulties and contrasts, has
become the common patrimony of men. It is a patrimony not well received
by all, but always a rich treasure available to men of good will.
all the doctrine coherent with the teachings of
3. Our duty is not only to guard this precious treasure, as if we were
concerned only with antiquity, but to dedicate ourselves with an
earnest will and without fear to that work which our era demands of us,
pursuing thus the path which the Church has followed for twenty
4. The salient point of this Council
is not, therefore, a discussion of
one article or another of the fundamental doctrine of the Church which
has repeatedly been taught by the Fathers and by ancient and modern
theologians, and which is presumed to be well known and familiar to all.
Now he is speaking
about the fundamental
doctrine of the Church, and
that is another story. Such fundamental
doctrine, as we have expressed
is coherent with the Holy Word of God, thus unchangeable.
5. For this a Council was not necessary. But from the renewed, serene,
and tranquil adherence to all the teaching of the Church in its
entirety and preciseness, as it still shines forth in the Acts of the
Council of Trent and First Vatican Council, the Christian, Catholic,
and apostolic spirit of the whole world expects a step forward toward a
doctrinal penetration and a formation of consciousness in faithful and
perfect conformity to the authentic doctrine, which, however, should be
studied and expounded through the methods of research and through the
literary forms of modern thought. The
substance of the ancient doctrine
of the deposit of faith is one thing, and the way in which it is
presented is another. And it is the latter that must be taken into
great consideration with patience if necessary, everything being
measured in the forms and proportions of a magisterium which is
predominantly pastoral in character.
Finally! The crux
of the problem! The problem is not - and has
never been - the Faith, it is how it has been taught - by word and deed!
How to Repress Errors
1. At the outset of the Second Vatican Council, it is evident, as
always, that the truth of the Lord
will remain forever. We see, in
fact, as one age succeeds another, that the opinions of men follow one
another and exclude each other. And often errors vanish as quickly as
they arise, like fog before the sun.
2. The Church has always opposed
these errors. Frequently she has
condemned them with the greatest severity. Nowadays however, the Spouse
of Christ prefers to make use of the medicine of mercy rather than that
of severity. She considers that she meets the needs of the present day
by demonstrating the validity of her teaching rather than by
condemnations. Not, certainly, that there is a lack of
teaching, opinions, and dangerous concepts to be guarded against and
dissipated. But these are so obviously in contrast with the right norm
of honesty, and have produced such lethal fruits that by now it would
seem that men of themselves are inclined to condemn them, particularly
those ways of life which despise God and His law or place excessive
confidence in technical progress and a well-being based exclusively on
the comforts of life. They are ever more deeply convinced of the
paramount dignity of the human person and of his perfection as well as
of the duties which that implies. Even more important, experience has
taught men that violence inflicted on others, the might of arms, and
political domination, are of no help at all in finding a happy solution
to the grave problems which afflict them.
The Church: "Mother
Church", "Spouse of Christ", "Body of Christ" and
eventually "Daughter of Mary"; and
"The truth of
the Lord remains forever" - a truth that includes Mercy -
but, before, the medicine used was severity and not Mercy.
wonder: Do these gentlemen listen to what they say - H.H. John
However, if we
take them as Catholic "buzz words" we will understand
why H.H. John XXIII has loaded his opening speech with them - he does
not want to antagonize any of the participants in the early stages of
the Council - particularly the traditionalists who have the backing of
3. That being so, the Catholic Church, raising the torch of religious
truth by means of this Ecumenical Council, desires to show herself to
be the loving mother of all, benign, patient, full of mercy and
goodness toward the brethren who are separated from her. To
oppressed by so many difficulties, the Church says, as Peter said to
the poor who begged alms from him: "I have neither gold nor silver, but
what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise
and walk" (Acts 3:6). In other words, the
Church does not offer to the
men of today riches that pass, nor does she promise them merely earthly
happiness. But she distributes to them the goods of divine grace which,
raising men to the dignity of sons of God, are the most efficacious
safeguards and aids toward a more human life. She opens the fountain of
her life-giving doctrine which allows men, enlightened by the light of
Christ, to understand well what they really are, what their lofty
dignity and their purpose are, and, finally, through her children, she
spreads everywhere the fullness of Christian charity, than which
nothing is more effective in eradicating the seeds of discord, nothing
more efficacious in promoting concord, just peace, and the brotherly
unity of all.
Although we take
issue with the wording "fountain
of her life-giving
doctrine" since it should be
"fountain of her
we cannot but agree fully with such lofty ideals. The question that
should be answered is: Why has that not been done for the last sixteen
centuries?.... and that is precisely the underlying subliminal question
H.H. John XXIII is raising at the opening of the Council. Almost
as if he were saying: "Exactly
what part of what Jesus Christ charged
us to do you not quite understand?"
The Unity of the Christian and Human Family Must Be Promoted
1. The Church's solicitude to promote and defend truth derives from the
fact that, according to the plan of
God, who wills all men to be saved
and to come to the knowledge of the truth (l Tim. 2:4), men
assistance of the whole of revealed doctrine cannot reach a complete
and firm unity of minds, with which are associated true peace and
2. Unfortunately, the entire
Christian family has not yet fully
attained this visible unity in truth. The Catholic Church, therefore,
considers it her duty to work actively so that there may be fulfilled
the great mystery of that unity, which Jesus Christ invoked with
fervent prayer from His heavenly Father on the eve of His sacrifice.
She rejoices in peace, knowing well that she is intimately associated
with that prayer, and then exults greatly at seeing that invocation
extend its efficacy with salutary fruit, even among those who are
outside her fold.
In case the
attendants missed the "underlying subliminal question"
alluded to in our prior comment - H.H. John XXIII is spoon feeding it
Indeed, if one considers well this same unity which Christ implored for
His Church, it seems to shine, as it were, with a triple ray of
beneficent supernal light: namely, the unity of Catholics among
themselves, which must always be kept exemplary and most firm; the
unity of prayers and ardent desires with which those Christians
separated from this Apostolic See aspire to be united with us; and the
unity in esteem and respect for the Catholic Church which animates
those who follow non-Christian religions.
3. In this regard, it is a source of considerable sorrow to see that
the greater part of the human race - although all men who are born were
redeemed by the blood of Christ - does not yet participate in those
sources of divine grace which exist in the Catholic Church. Hence the
Church, whose light illumines all, whose strength of supernatural unity
redounds to the advantage of all humanity, is rightly described in
these beautiful words of St. Cyprian:
"The Church, surrounded by divine
light, spreads her rays over
the entire earth. This light, however, is one and unique and shines
everywhere without causing any separation in the unity of the body. She
extends her branches over the whole world. By her fruitfulness she
sends ever farther afield he rivulets. Nevertheless, the head is always
one, the origin one for she is the one mother, abundantly fruitful. We
are born of her, are nourished by her milk, we live of her spirit' (De
Catholicae Eccles. Unitate, 5).
4. Venerable brothers, such is the
aim of the Second Vatican Ecumenical
Council, which, while bringing together the Church's best energies and
striving to have men welcome more favourably the good tidings of
salvation, prepares, as it were and consolidates the path toward that
unity of mankind which is required as a necessary foundation, in order
that the earthly city may be brought to the resemblance of that
heavenly city where truth reigns, charity is the law, and whose extent
is eternity (Cf. St. Augustine, Epistle 138, 3).
- do you finally understand the purpose of the Council?" It seems
that he is asking the audience.
1. Now, "our voice is directed to you" (2 Cor. 6:11 ) venerable
brothers in the episcopate. Behold, we are gathered together in this
Vatican Basilica, upon which hinges the history of the Church where
heaven and earth are closely joined, here near the tomb of Peter and
near so many of the tombs of our holy predecessors, whose ashes in this
solemn hour seem to thrill in mystic exultation.
2. The Council now beginning rises in the Church like daybreak, a
forerunner of most splendid light. It is now only dawn. And already at
this first announcement of the rising day, how much sweetness fills our
heart. Everything here breathes sanctity and arouses great joy. Let us
contemplate the stars, which with their brightness augment the majesty
of this temple. These stars,
according to the testimony of the Apostle
John (Apoc. 1:20), are you, and with you we see shining around
of the Prince of the Apostles, the golden candelabra. That is, the
Church is confided to you (Ibid.).
There is another
point of view regarding the mentioned stars, also
brought to our attention by John:
And his tail drew the third part
of the stars of heaven, and cast them
to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to be
delivered; that, when she should be delivered, he might devour her son.
We can almost
hear John XXIII think "If the shoe fits, wear it!"
We see here with you important personalities, present in an attitude of
great respect and cordial expectation, having come together in Rome
from the five continents to represent the nations of the world.
3. We might say that heaven and earth are united in the holding of the
Council - the saints of heaven to protect our work, the faithful of the
earth continuing in prayer to the Lord, and you, seconding the
inspiration of the Holy Spirit in order that the work of all may
correspond to the modern expectations and needs of the various peoples
of the world.
This requires of you serenity of mind,
brotherly concord moderation in
proposals, dignity in discussion, and wisdom of deliberation.
the way in which we have not conducted ourselves in the last
sixteen centuries" - we could hear him
say under his breath.
4. God grant that your labours and your work, toward which the eyes of
all peoples and the hopes of the entire world are turned, may
abundantly fulfill the aspirations of all.
5. Almighty God! In Thee we place all our confidence, not trusting in
our own strength. Look down benignly upon these pastors of Thy Church.
May the light of Thy supernal grace aid us in taking decisions and in
making laws. Graciously hear the prayers which we pour forth to Thee in
unanimity of faith, of voice, and of mind.
6. O Mary, Help of Christians, Help
of Bishops, of whose love we have
recently had particular proof in thy temple of Loreto, where we
venerated the mystery of the Incarnation dispose all things for a happy
and propitious outcome and, with thy spouse, St. Joseph, the holy
Apostles Peter and Paul St. John the Baptist and St. John the
Evangelist, intercede for us to God.
He opened the
address with the Holy Name of Mary in his lips and he
also closes it with Her while reminding all that not all Bishops are
7. To Jesus Christ, our most amiable Redeemer, immortal King of peoples
and of times, be love, power, and glory forever and ever.
It is quite obvious that H.H. John XXIII had very clear in his mind
what to accomplish with Vatican II - (he thought he could) avert the
fulfillment of the Third Part of the Secret of Fatima by bringing the
Church Administration in line with the Will of God.
