                While he was in the hospital, Pope John Paul reviewed the Church’s documentation of Fatima and the Third Secret of Fatima. He was convinced that Our Lady of Fatima had saved his life. Later that year, he had a mosaic of the Virgin Mary (Mater Ecclesiae — Mother of the Church) installed on St. Peter’s Square. He went three times afterwards to the shrine of Fatima in Portugal (1982, 1991 and 2000) — to thank the Virgin Mary. On March 25, 1984, to fulfill the request of Our Lady of Fatima, the Pope consecrated the world — including Russia — to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Communism collapsed soon afterward.As a measure of his gratitude, John Paul gave the bullet that was extracted from his abdomen to the shrine; the bullet today forms part of the crown of the statue of the Virgin of Fatima. During John Paul’s 2000 visit to Fatima, the third part of the message the Virgin gave to the three children in 1917 was revealed; it was a description of the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul: the “bishop clothed in white” who prays for all the faithful is the Pope. As he makes his way with great effort towards the Cross amid the corpses of those who were martyred (bishops, priests, men and women religious and many lay persons), he too falls to the ground, apparently dead, under a burst of gunfire.

    • What truly matters is that one has done so in the Spirit of Jesus Christ
    • It can not be felt from outside, but only when truly lived
    • We may not fully grasp the decisions made by those who have dedicated themselves to an intense spiritual life, but perhaps that is the point; that it should remain a mystery.
    • And, to truly understand such a life, one must live it
