Art Bell asked Malachi Martin in an interview dated 1998-07-13 if that particular well publicized version of the Secret was the same as the original
text of the Third Secret of the Vatican archives.
Malachi Martin's various responses to Art Bell were:
-"It is not the text which was given to me to read in 1960."
-"There are elements in it, which belong in the text."
-"Yes, there are elements which do belong in the third secret. That's about the most measured response I could give to it."
-...Art Bell: Alright, Fr Martin, again, referring to what I read, which you said had partial relevance, would you imagine that the person who wrote
this had been privy, in some way, to the original text?
M.Martin's answer: "Yes, certainly, at least by word of mouth, if not by reading."
-"it's not the text. It's not specific enough. The text is very dry, and specific. All that is there, it's very accurate, as regards the general
Fatima interpretation of modern history. But it is not the text of the third secret that I know."

As far as the Third Secret predicting a massive war breaking out in the 2nd half of the 20th century: I would say that it's partially accurate. I
would say also that the major Serbia-Kosovo-NATO war that broke out in 1999 is a conflict that is about to enter its next major phase around August
2010 has the characteristics of a conflict that could ignite WWIII....thus allowing the Fatima Prophecy to, in the end, be accurately fulfilled and
Malachi Martin said the true text of the 3rd Secret was more specific and precise then that publicized version. I would suggest that the Third Secret
of Fatima more precisely foretold that "the commencement of world war III will break out near the end of the 20th century."
The Pope of 1960 (John XXIII) is widely reported to have stated that the Third Secret does not pertain to his lifetime....which indicates the Prophecy
mentions a date several decades out or further(the end of the 20th century rather then "second half of the 20th") which is a date that would allow
the 1960's Pope to rule out the possibility of the great war occurring in the 1960's or early part of the second half of the 20th century.
Pope John Paul II remarked in 1995 in his own book crossing the Threshold of Hope(pg 221) that the words of the Third Secret "now at THE END OF THIS
(20th) CENTURY, SEEM TO BE CLOSE TO THIER FULFILMENT" =>
At the current moment I feel obliged to warn of significant possibility that the Fatima Events may be a demonic deception: the number 13 is ingrained
in the Fatima events. The Book of Revelations chapter 13 verse 13 warns of a false prophet powered by demonic forces capable of making "fire come
down from the sky as men watched on." The Miracle of the Sun performed on the 13th at Fatima is eerily reminiscent of Revelations 13:13. The only
thing that makes sense to me right now about the True God associating the Fatima events with the number 13, despite what is written in Revelations
13:13, is that the number 13 is in itself a prophecy that points to the 13th year of the 3rd millennium(2013) for a major element within the
prophesied Third Secret to occur.
Would God choose a prophet named Lucia or would Lucifer choose a prophet with the name of Lucia(ie: Lucia-fer)? Or do such things not matter to
At the very minimum for the current Serbia-Kosovo conflict to spark world war III, I would expect the Serbian hardliners(that speak more aggressively
about Kosovo) to win elections in Serbia in mid-2012...at minimum!! In that case it would be the Serbian hardliners that would crackdown on kosovo at
a latter period.
Though, I find the most likely scenario involves the Russians taking the initiative and bombing Kosovo into submission, on behalf of Serbia, in the
period after the World Court's "Kosovo independence" ruling is released around August 2010 and before the Russian presidential elections in early
2012. With such actions being motivated by Medvedev(Russia) and Tadic(Serbia) wanting to act tough in order to secure victory in the 2012 elections.
If Medvedev doesn't do this, he must tell his wife he is stepping down so Putin can take his place to rule for the next 12 years(2012-2024)(Medvedev
increased the terms to 6 years). There are some signs that Medvedev is itching to step out of Putin's shadow and become the real leader of Russia
after the 2012 elections or in the run-up to those elections.
