Who should we believe? (06/18/2006)
From: John Schreiber

How many Catholics noticed in the May, 2006 issue of the Winona Diocese newspaper, it never mentioned the 89th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima (May 13, 1917), further proof of the downplaying of Mary's role in today's modern Catholic Church (see "Time" magazine's cover story "The Search for Mary" Dec. 30, 1991). That downplaying has resulted in a church not about the truth, but about cover-ups. Cover-ups of sexual abuse of children by its priests, which for so many years it succeeded in doing until it was forced to tell the truth, cover-up of serious pastoral negligence, cover-up of internal strife within the church, cover-up of the true third secret of Fatima - "a crisis of faith in the church," not the assassination of the pope, as the church claimed.

There are two reasons for this. Pope John XXIII's 1960 policy of "optimism at all costs" (see "Soul" magazine Mar-Apil 1998, page 4), and the 1962-65 Second Vatican Council in which Father Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) took part in downplaying Mary's role in the church (see Winona Daily News April 20, 2005, page 11A). Perhaps this is the reason why Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) chose to overrule Our Lady when he downplayed her Fatima message in an interview with Portuguese Catholic Radio on the afternoon of October 12, 1996, when he made this statement. (See "Soul" magazine Jan.-Feb. issue 1997, page 8). "To all the curious, I would say I am certain that the Virgin Mary does not engage in sensationalism, she does not create fear, she does not present apocalyptic visions, but guides people to her Son, and this what is essential."

Our Lady, July 13, 1917 (part of her message). "If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church, the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated."

Perhaps someone in today's modern Catholic Church would be willing to tell us who we should believe?
