Vatican Cardinal: Sr. Lucia Wrote Me

Cardinal: “What Sister Lucia told me: Final Confrontation between the Lord and Satan will be over Family and Marriage.”

A Cardinal tells: Sister Lucia wrote me…

On Feburary 16, 2008, Cardinal Carlo Caffara (Archbishop of Bologna), after a Mass celebrated at the tomb of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, granted an interview to Tele Radio Padre Pio, which was subsequently reported in the monthly magazine “Voce di Padre Pio” March, 2008 . Here are some significant excerpts.

Q. Your Eminence, recently in Corriere della Sera you said that you had always had a great devotion to Padre Pio. Please tell us why.

I have had great devotion to him since the beginning of my priesthood as a result of a rather unique experience. I had been a priest for some months and a brother-priest came to see me. He was quite a bit older than me and was going through a serious crisis of faith. It is difficult to describe what a crisis of faith is for a priest: a terrible thing! I told him “Brother, I’m too little, and sense that I can’t carry such a burden. Go to Padre Pio.” So he went, and while he was talking to Padre he had a great mystical experience, touched profoundly by the mercy of God. Now he is one of the best priests I know. There you have it, it all began like that.

Q. Did you ever meet Padre Pio personally?

No, I didn’t. I never had the courage to go to him, thinking that I would be wasting his time! […] I retain that Padre Pio belongs to the series of great mystics who have this characteristic: the most profound sharing in the Cross of Christ, as they carry upon themselves the great tragedy of mankind today – atheism. Padre Pio, St. Gemma Galgani, St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross , Mother Theresa, the Curé d’Ars all had the experience of sitting round the table with sinners, living their experiences, of carrying, in a different way, the weight of the Agony in Gethsemane; they testified to the love of Christ Who takes upon Himself, the pain of the man who has left his Father’s house and doesn’t want to go back, even if he knows in his heart that he is better off in his Father’s house rather than tending to pigs. Man today continues to imagine that he can live as if God didn’t exist; and we see the devastation this has caused.

Q. There is a prophecy by Sister Lucia dos Santos, of Fatima, which concerns “the final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan”. The battlefield is the family. Life and the family. We know that you were given charge by John Paul II to plan and establish the Pontifical Institute for the Studies on Marriage and the Family.

Yes, I was. At the start of this work entrusted to me by the Servant of God John Paul II, I wrote to Sister Lucia of Fatima through her Bishop as I couldn’t do so directly. Unexplainably however, since I didn’t expect an answer, seeing that I had only asked for prayers, I received a very long letter with her signature – now in the Institute’s archives. In it we find written: the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid, she added, because anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. And then she concluded: however, Our Lady has already crushed its head.

Talking also to John Paul II, you felt too that this was the crux, as it touches the very pillar of creation, the truth of the relationship between man and woman among the generations. If the founding pillar is touched the entire building collapses and we see this now, because we are at this point and we know it. And I’m moved when I read the best biographies of Padre Pio , on how this man was so attentive to the sanctity of marriage and the sanctity of the spouses, even with justifiable rigor on occasion.

  1. If the “climate change” encyclical is accepted and the “global authority” is implemented, every person on the face of the earth will be affected by its insidious regulations and imposed de-population mandates. Forced abortion, sterilization, euthanasia, same-sex coupling, ban on marriage between one man and one woman, etc., etc., etc. will necessarily be widespread. If almost 7 billion become between one half billion to a billion people on the planet due to enforced de-population planning, these and other atrocious measures like mandatory vaccines, rationing of food, water, shelter, etc., will also be used to reduce sustainable life. Disease will increase because access to health services will also be rationed as well. Wars and insurrections will become common occurrences because people will be starving and that will result in even more violence than what we are experiencing today. In other words, life will be hell on earth…except for those who control the rest of us. Ignorance is the mindset of those who allow themselves to be deceived because they think they are going to get something for nothing.


    I’ve learned of some potential problems as to the likelihood of Sr. Lucia writing such a letter only within the past hour, from a very careful, literate student of Fatima.

    • What are you inferring by this comment? Unless you reveal the contradicting source and he/she can factually substantiate that this declaration by Cardinal Ottaviani is not based on fact, then Cardinal Ottaviani’s statement becomes suspect. A hornet’s nest for sure.

  3. Exceptional, I saw no reference to Cd. Ottaviani in what I posted?

    The point was raised by a student of Fatima that at the time Cardinal CAFFARA refers to, the bishop in Fatima was (allegedly) working with Msgr. Guerra, SJ, whose reputation as a severe critic of Fatima is well documented. Thus, there is the prospect that what the cardinal “received from Sr. Lucy” was bogus. There are a number of other “letters and statements” attributed to the seer in later years, to which Patrick correctly points, that were obviously more than suspect.

    Quite simply, I thought with my emotions instead of my reason and may have not only been fooled – if the letter the cardinal believed came from the seer was bogus – but went to the trouble of broadcasting it others, as well.

    I simply do not know and have no reasonable way of knowing whether any of the claims by the cardinal (which I do think are entirely sincere, even if based on a ruse about which he knew nothing) are valid or not.

    My apologies to one and all. I will endeavor to avoid following the sequence…

    Ready! Fire! Aim! …..

    in the future.
