Bertone shows original Third Fatima Secret letter on TV

Appearing on an Italian TV station, Holy See Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, has shown the original copy of Fatima Sister Lucia's letter detailing the so-called Third Secret revealed to her by Our Lady.

Catholic News reports that Cardinal Bertone showed the letter, which was first revealed in 2000, on the program "Port a Porta" on the Rai Uno network.

He first opened an orange envelope with a translation in Italian of the letter, and then he opened a white envelope and showed the original letter written in 1944.

The cardinal read the phrase that appears on the outside of the envelope: "Through express order of Our Lady, this envelope can be opened in 1960". Inside is the letter in which Sr Lucia revealed the Third Secret of the Fatima apparitions of 1917.

In 2000 Pope John Paul II decided to reveal the secret, which did not refer to any worldwide catastrophe, but rather to the attempt on his life on 13 May 1981
