Time for me to eat crow and admit I was wrong; there was only 1 Sr. Lucia. The reason for this change follows:
Just had a long phone conversation with Richard Salbato of www.unitypublishing.com and when I asked him about the 2 Lucias theory he made it very
clear that there was only one Sr. Lucia. His reasons for this stance is based on:
1. He has met with Sr. Lucia 8 times and though the meetings were in her final years he feels strongly that it was the original Lucia due to his
friendship with the nuns, several of whom knew Lucia from long ago. He specifically named Sr. Isabel, the porter for the convent who is in her
nineties now but is still very sharp, who knew Lucia for many, many years;
2. Mr. Salbato who lived in the village of the children for several years would on occasion bring some of Lucia’s family members to visit her.
They knew it was Lucia they were speaking with and they definitely would know if it were an impostor;
3. Mr. Salbato knew Sr. Lucia’s personal physician.
Based on this information I am convinced that there was one Sr. Lucia and I apologize to anyone who I have misled. I hope if ever anyone brings this
theory out again that you share this post with them or have them visit Mr. Salbato’s site or email him.
Now on to the good news, Mr. Salbato is willing to visit the board and on occasion post some of his insights on the conspiracies we are discussing.
His background is such that he has first hand knowledge in several conspiracies; also he has had contact with insiders on other conspiracies and has
then followed through with a lot of research.
The main areas that he is following are: Religion/Visitations, Conspiracies in Religion and also a great deal of research on the Masons and their
infiltration within the Church as well as the Mason’s/illuminati directing of world events.
Mr. Salbato was also a friend of Malachi Martin’s, he even sustains Martin’s website for him. They had some differences of opinion, for example
Garabandal is not a valid visitation in Mr. Salbato’s view. He bases his opinion on meeting with Conchita of Garabandal many times.
He also told me that the book that Malachi was writing at the time of his death was on the Mason's infiltrating the church and believes his death was
not natural, that he had been pushed down the stairs.
I asked him about the Satanists within the Vatican that Malachi had written of in his novel, “Windswept House” and that Malachi had said in
interviews were actual events. Mr. Salbato agreed that the rituals had occurred and that according to his inside sources at the Vatican the Church
had dealt with the perpetrators quietly. Some (including the leader) had been sent to serve the church in Iran. The leader had died after four years
there. Others were sent to places just as unpleasant.
Also, the pedophilia within the church was discussed and he told me how the church handles that within their ranks, though I don't agree with their
methods. He said that when they discover a bishop or priest that is a pedophile they usually promote them to the Vatican so that the Vatican can
monitor who they have dealings with and uncover the whole network. He said that they moved too slowly to pull in the net and regret that. Their reason
for the slowness is that they run what is larger than any govt. on the planet and it's difficult to work quickly. Mr. Salbato feels that this is
still an ongoing problem.
As you can tell our discussion went on for quite a while, and I hope to continue our discussions for many years, he is a fascinating person who works
diligently to get to the truth and I hope one day he publishes the information he has uncovered in a book. His site in the meantime is an excellent
resource for conspiracies and he welcomes emails and will do his best to answer though he is a very busy man as you can tell.
We discussed much more, mainly on the chastisement that will come one day and he feels that the church will make it through to the years of peace that
Here is one of the visitations that he is certain of:
Once again, I apologize, and if I have left out any detail or am inaccurate in any way in the description of our discussion hopefully Mr. Salbato will
step in to help.
