Art Bell: Now, I guess I would ask this. I understand you have taken an oath, but have you considered that the shock that is required to turn things
around, may be this very serious, it may be that … it should be revealed.
Fr. Martin: To your last sentence, I fully assent. It should be revealed, but here is my difficulty, Art. I’m one small little man. I have no public
authority to do that. I do not know if that will be the will of God. And since it would have such dire effects on much more than Christians, and many
others, I can’t make that decision. Do you understand what I am trying to say?
Art Bell: Father, in what manner were you shown the Third Secret?
Fr. Martin: The cardinal who showed it to me had been present at a meeting held by Pope John XXIII in that year, 1960, to outline, to a certain number
of cardinals and prelates what he thought should be done with the Secret. But John XXIII, Pope John XXIII, the pope in 1960, did not think that he
should publish the Secret. It would ruin his, at that time, ongoing negotiations with Nikita Kruschev, the boss of all the Russians. And he also had a
different outlook on life, which, in two years later, opening the Vatican council, he echoed very succinctly and almost contemptuously in the middle
of his speech on October 11, 1962 in St. Peter’s to the assembled bishops who had come to the Vatican council, and the visitors, the place was
crowded, huge basilica, he derided, contemptuously, that He was against the people he called “prophets of doom.” And there was no doubt in any of
our minds he was talking about the three prophets of Fatima.
Art Bell: There are those within the Church who minimize what is contained in the Third Secret.
Fr. Martin: Absolutely.
Art Bell: And then there are others who don’t minimize it at all.
Fr. Martin: They exaggerate.
Art Bell: They exaggerate. So without minimizing or without exaggerating, you’re telling me what’s in the Third Secret is more horrible than what
I just read.
Fr. Martin: Oh yes, Art, it is. Because, what you have just read, essentially, it is the onslaught of natural powers … sure, Satan is walking, etc,
like that amongst man…but essentially it is as if nature revolted against the human race. That’s essentially, through all these terrible
catastrophes a chastisement, and that’s not the essence of the Third Secret, not the frightening one.
Art Bell: Wufff!
Fr. Martin: Yes. It does stagger the imagination.
(A few minutes later)
Art Bell: Father, how much weight do you give to the entire Fatima revelations?
Fr. Martin: I consider it to be the key event in the climbing fortune of the Roman Catholic organization, and the defining event for the near future
of the Church in the next millennium, the third millennium. It’s the defining event. And that is why strong men, strong men but I mean…you see,
Art, when we speak about strong men, the amazing thing about this state craft, people, people who practice the craft of state, like Casaroli who just
died, or Pope John Paul II, its what people always remark about great figure in history, like Napoleon, like Hitler, like Stalin. They had a will of
indestructible power! And they could oppose the united wills of millions and make their point of view stick, to a certain degree anyway, until they
fell, till they became a cropper, as we say in England. And similarly, in Rome there are men with strong wills. They’re in state craft all their
lives. They are engaged in macro-government. Not merely a religion, but in fate. They’re up there amongst the greats. And THEY will not touch this
with a large pole.
Art Bell: In what way does the Church have role in what many see coming as a one world government, a one world control point?
Fr. Martin: Two responses to that, Art, very brief responses. One is, the response already chosen by the leaders, by the managers, by the prelates, by
the papacy, at the end of this millennium, and then there is what one sometimes thinks will be God’s response. The response of the present moment is
this: Beginning with John XXIII, and then with Paul VI, and now with John Paul II, the response is: Let us cooperate. It has joined, as Paul VI said
in his famous speech in December 1965: “Let’s cooperate with man to build his habitat.” And John Paul II is an ardent supporter of, the tendency
to one world government for geopolitical reasons. He wants to bring in his brand of Christianity, of course, and Catholicism, but he certainly is in
favor of it [one world government]. When he addressed the United Nations, in his last big letter to them, he salute was this: “I, John, bishop of
Rome, and a member of humanity.” Now this was no longer, let’s say, Pius IX or Pius X. Pius X would have said at the beginning of this century:
“I am the vicar of Jesus Christ. If you do not listen to my voice, then you are going to be damned forever. We will not participate in any
government behavior, in any government plans that do not recognize the kingship of Christ.” That is completely absent. There now is the policy of
cooperation with the formation of the European Union, cooperation with the United Nations, and the Vatican and the Church has entered the list in the
struggle amongst the general assembly of the United Nations, and in the non-governmental organizations.
Art Bell: So it is well under way?
Fr. Martin: Well under way! That is the response, and remember, the Vatican has, on Vatican hill, it has about, what, the figure varies, over one
hundred and forty ambassadors from the nations. It is an integral part, and has built itself into it over the centuries of our international life. And
it has ambassadors and representatives in over ninety countries, including Russia, including Israel, and it has its representative in Beijing, not
quite diplomatic status yet, but they will get to that.
Art Bell: Again, Fr. Martin, referring to what I read, which you said had a partial relevance,?
would you imagine that the person who wrote this had been privy in some way to the original text
Fr. Martin: Yes, yes, yes, certainly, at least by word of mouth, not by reading.
Art Bell: I understand.
(later in the program)
Art Bell: All right, here we go. Just a couple of things I want to quickly read, one from a friend in Australia, Father who says, “I had a Jesuit
priest tell me more of the Third Secret of Fatima years ago, in Perth. He said among other things, the last pope would be under control of Satan. Pope
John fainted, thinking it might be him. We were interrupted before I could hear the rest.” Any comment on that?
Fr. Martin: Yes. It sounds as if they were reading or being told the text of the Third Secret.
Art Bell: Oh my!
