Does the official Vatican newspaper count as a sound source???
Or will you have to have tea with him at the Vatican with an E.T. to believe his credentials??
The Curious Article in the Vatican Official Newspaper
I quote the following from Brother Michael, TWTAF, Vol III, pg 657. I show his remarks
in yellow background.
On October 15, 1978, L'Osservatore della Domenica, the Sunday supplement to the
L'Osservatore Romano, the official Vatican Newspaper, contained an article signed by a
Vatican prelate, Msgr. Corrado Balducci, a member of the Congregation for the
Evangelization of Peoples. Coming from a member of the Curia, and published in an
official Vatican journal, this article gave considerable credence to the fact of an
Apocalyptic Third Secret. Following are excerpts from it, quoted by Documentation
Catholique of January 7, 1979.
We do not want to get lost in the many texts and so-called prophetic messages, due
often to sick people, who more easily find an echo in times of discouragement and
skepticism. There is, however, a text which causes us to reflect and whose authenticity
seems acceptable: it is the one called "the third Secret of Fatima" (1917). The rumors
had been that it would be made public in 1960; then it was thought it would be for the
Holy Year of 1975. If it had been a question of good news, consoling things, there
would have been no reason not to divulge it. Unfortunately, it seems to contain painful
and very tragic predictions. Some indiscretions on this subject appeared in the press
about 1963, at a moment when, it was said, this text had been brought to the
knowledge of the President of the United States and the leader of the Soviet Union. It
is also found in Renzo Basehera's book Le Profezie, from which it was reprinted by
Neues Europa at Stuttgart on October 15, 1963.
True or not, I quote a few sentences from it:
"A great punishment shall come to all mankind . . . in the second half of the 20th
Century . . .
There is no order in anything, even in the highest positions, it is Satan who
governs . . .
He will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of the great scientists who
invent arms, with which half of humanity can be destroyed in a few minutes (in
1917, atomic energy was still unknown). He will have in his power the mighty
who govern peoples, and he will push them to produce these weapons in great
"There will also come a time of the hardest trials for the Church."
The greatest World War will happen in the second half of the 20th Century . . .
Millions and millions of men will envy those who are dead".
Leaving it thus “to the reader what judgment to make on Fatima”, the author
concludes on a note of optimism after the death of John Paul I who, “by his smile gave
hope and optimism to life.”
This article, which tended to give credence to the "false secret" of Neues Europa, in fact
had no other authority than the Vatican clerk, who moreover had made sure his article
appeared during the interregnum between the death of John Paul I and the election of
John Paul II
Balducci quoted on an Italian T.V. programme
"Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. The Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans
from its Nuncios (embassies) in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela."
-- Monsignor Corrado Balducci As stated 5 different times on Italian TV** (Vatican theologian insider close to the Pope,Monsignor Balducci said that
he is on a Vatican commission looking into extraterrestrial encounters, and how to cope with the emerging general realization of extraterrestrial
so in his own words, he fronts a Vatican commision lookin in to e.t. encounters.
My theory is that he found evidence.. and what he is doing is helping the Catholic Church to "cope" by releasing info before a worldwide official
disclosure to soften up the Catholics into incorporating this disclosure into the Catholic doctrine.
