What is missing are the words of the Virgin Mary which would explain how the pope in the vision comes to be executed by soldiers outside a ruined city filled with corpses. In this book, lawyer and Catholic commentator Christopher A. Ferrara conducts a meticulous examination of a mass of evidence - including many recent admissions, inadvertent disclosures, inconsistencies and sudden about-faces on the part of the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone - to arrive at the inescapable conclusion that a text of the Virgin's words in the Third Secret has yet to be revealed.
This book was the first full-length examination of the grounds for rejecting Cardinal Bertone's version of the facts in the Third Secret controversy. The Cardinal's own statements, including his book and radio and television broadcasts in 2007, are shown to demonstrate beyond any doubt that a text of the Secret has been suppressed, evidently under an unjustifiable mental reservation that the text is not "authentic".
Antonio Socci, a well-known, mainstream, Italian author and television reporter, not associated with any 'traditionalist' group began his own investigation into the Third Secret of Fatima convinced that the Vatican had released the entire Secret on June 26, 2000.
Yet the more he investigated, the more he became convinced that the entire Secret was not revealed.
An extraordinary investigation into this on-going mystery, a clear indictment of the Modern(ist) Vatican, and firm evidence of a cover-up.
