A representative of Icon Films has confirmed that Mel Gibson has purchased the rights to 'Stealing from Angels' by Irish writer Brian Dullaghan. The book is creating waves in Rome for what appears to be proof that the Vatican's version of Lucia's letter (known as the 3rd secret of Fatima) is false. Dullaghan has included a graphic image on the books cover of what he says is the actual note written by Lucia Dos Santos in Tuy Spain in 1944. You don't have to look far to see which version is or may be authentic. In Lucia's own biography she clearly says, "I wrote the words in my own hand on simple plain un-ruled notepaper." The Vatican were clearly embarrassed that none of their officials had actually read Lucia's book. If Gibson does make a movie based on the Fatima story then the 3rd secret will surely be the main focus. If Dullaghan has seen this letter then he may be the only person alive to know of its contents.
The history of Fatima
Lucia Dos Santos was 10 years old when on May 13, 1917, while tending the sheep in the Cova de Iria, a woman, who later identified herself as the Blessed Virgin Mary, appeared to the children. The apparition would continue monthly on the 13th of the month until October 1917 (save August, when imprisonment by the anti-clerical authorities prevented it). During each month's apparition, the Virgin encouraged prayer, especially the rosary, and sacrifice. She also communicated certain prophecies of the future (the end of World War I, the rise of terror in Russia (communism) and its propagation throughout the world, the annihilation of nations, another war preceded by a heavenly sign if men did not convert, and the suffering and persecution of the good, especially the Holy Father. On Oct. 13, 1930, the bishop of Leiria-Fátima, José Alves Correia da Silva, declared the apparitions of Fátima worthy of credibility and allowed public devotion to the Virgin under the title of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fátima.
After the prophesied death of Jacinta and Francisco, during the flu pandemic of 1919, Lucia alone remained to carry on the mission assigned by the "woman from heaven." At 14 she was admitted as a boarder to the school of the Sisters of St. Dorothy in Vilar, near Oporto in the north of Portugal. On Oct. 24, 1925, she entered the Institute of the Sisters of St. Dorothy as a postulant in the convent in Tuy, Spain, not far from the Portuguese border. It was here that Lucia committed to paper the final part of Our Lady’s message. (now called the 3rd secret of Fatima) The letter was sent to Rome with instructions from Lucia that the message be revealed to the world on the first day of 1960 or upon Lucia’s death (which ever occurred first). The Vatican decided against revealing the contents of the letter.
Dullaghan claims that the letter was stolen on September 27th 1978 from the apartment of the Holy Father Pope John Paul I. The following day the 28th of September 1978 the Vatican announced that Pope John Paul was dead. No reason has ever been given for his death.
