Archbishop Viganò, Fatima and Civitavecchia

Dr. Maike Hickson emerged in 2016 as a leading controversialist in discussions about Fatima, when, on Pentecost Sunday of that year, she wrote an article about a telephone conversation she had with the late Father Ingo Dollinger.  On various occasions Father Dollinger, who had personal contact with Cardinal Ratzinger, stated that he had been told by the future Benedict XVI that there was more to the Third Secret than what had been published by the Vatican.  On Saturday of that week the Vatican published a denial, quoting Benedict XVI himself. Then in 2019 Bishop Athanasius Schneider stated in his book Christus Vincit that one could not adhere to the theory of a missing document of the Secret, because it would call into question the honesty of Benedict XVI.  However, in 2020, the highly respected Archbishop Viganò made statements supporting the theory of a missing document, and Maike Hickson and others cited his comments to support their thesis.

More recently Dr. Hickson has added another detail to her analysis, this time in an article about statements of Archbishop Viganò relating to reports of revelations of Our Lady beginning in 1995 in Civitavecchia, near Rome, to the young girl Jessica Gregori and to her family.  According to Archbishop Viganò’s account, this event is related to the Third Secret of Fatima. Read More.

Episcopal Leaders in the Face of the World Crisis

Eight months before his death on January 8, 2011, Bishop Manuel Pestana Filho of Anápolis, Brazil addressed an international Fatima conference in Rome organized by Father Nicholas Gruner.  Bishop Pestana told his audience that during the Second Vatican Council a committee went to see Sister Lucia, and he had the opportunity to submit to her the following question: Was there a relationship between the Third Secret of Fatima and the Council?  Although Sister Lucia had to respond by saying that she was not authorized to speak on this matter, she was able to do so indirectly years later, on May 12, 1982, in her letter to Pope John Paul II.

Liturgical Law in the Midst of the Pandemic

When the bishops in the State of Minnesota decided to open their churches without accepting the state’s restrictions on public worship, concerned Catholics rejoiced at this defense of the rights of the Church against government interference.  The action of the Minnesota bishops followed the example of the former papal nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who had called attention to similar interference by the Italian government with the Church’s authority, in violation of the Lateran Treaty.

While these recent developments in Church-State relations remind us of the proper role of the Church in society, there has been a parallel development within the Church herself, concerning the Church’s laws regarding the reception of Holy Communion during the coronavirus pandemic. Read More.
