Carmelite nun Lucia Dies

Many probably never heard of her. Born Lucia Dos Santos, the 97-year-old Carmelite nun was the last of the three visionaries who saw and spoke with the Virgin Mary. So they say. The other two, her cousins Jacinta and Francisco, died during the influenza pandemic in 1919 and 1920. In a little village called Fatima during World War I, the three children saw the virgin Mary next to a small evergreen tree. Who asked that they come back on the 13th of each month for the next six months, at which times she would tell them who she was and what she wanted.

During the apparitions, Mary made several prophecies, telling the children that if man did not stop offending God, a second great war would begin during the reign of Pope Pius XI. Twenty-Two years later, World War II broke out in Europe. She also warned that Russia, unless converted, would wreak havoc upon the world. This was before the rise of the Soviet Union.

Mary also confided to the children the so-called Third Secret. The contents of the Third Secret were shared with John XXIII's successors. In June 2000, Pope John Paul II released the Third Secret. The message, as recounted by Lucia, warned of tribulation for the world and persecution of the Catholic Church, including the shooting of the pope.

Why did the Virgin Mary never confided me any secrets?
