Kresta in the Afternoon – May 13, 2020 – Hour 2

+  John Paul II and the Secrets of Fatima (full hour)

  • Description: On this day in 1917, our Blessed Mother appeared to three shepherd children outside Fatima, Portugal. Our Lady revealed to the shepherd children a three-part secret, known as the Secrets of Fatima. There is concern by some that the third part of the secret has yet to be fully revealed, but Sister Lucia before her death testified that “no secret remains.” We look at the secrets and the links between Fatima and John Paul II with Dr Robert Fastiggi.
