The three "prophecies" of the Holy Mother's apparition from Fatima were written after
a majority of the events the Holy Mother prophesied
had already occurred. Sister Lucia wasn't asked to write down her memoirs and reveal the three secrets until the forties (I believe, it's been a
while since I looked at this case).
So, in "secret 1" when the end of WW1 and the start of WW2 were predicted... how is that "amazing" when WW2 was already in progress? It also lists
that children will be taken to Heaven, and that Christians will be persecuted. Now, I don't recall any children's crusade in WW2, and, if I remember
correctly Hitler and his regime were Christians who persecuted Jews, Communists, the disabled, gypsies, homosexuals, and other non-Christians. So,
quite a whiff with that swing-and-miss on secret # 1.
Secret # 2 talks about devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary... which, ummm, means, well... something. It's a rather cryptic, poorly written
secret which seems to have something to do with the spread of Communism, Russia's threat as a world super-power, and, well, not much else. This was
wonderful in the 40s and 50s when the Red Scare was gaining power. But... well, Communism as a threat kind of died out and was replaced by... uh...
religious extremists, fundamentalist Islamic terrorists, Christian missionaries, America's Police State policies, and oil wars.
So, yeah. "Secret 2" kind of fell short of it's promise as well.
Fatima was a joke. Nothing serious, or prophetic.
