In 1910 Pope St Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique made a very prophetic statement: "Alas! This organisation which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable effluent of the great movement of apostasy being organised in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions."
The Portugal News of 1 November 2003 reported on a Vatican/UN pan-religious congress, "The Present of Man - The Future of God: The Place of Sanctuaries in Relation to the Sacred", held at Fatima between 10-12 October 2003. The report is confirmed by John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News.
This congress was presided over by the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, and attended by the Bishop of Leira-Fatima and Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald, Prefect of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, Msgr Guerra, the Rector of the Shrine, Fr Jacques Dupuis SJ, as well as Buddhist, Hindu, Islam, Orthodox, Anglican and African pagans.
* Fatima is to be turned into a pan-religious site where all religions, pagans included, can come to pray to and worship their respective gods.
* Every 25 years this and all shrines are to be revamped to reflect the then modern day trends and beliefs.
* Msgr Guerra states that all this must be assumed to be the will of Our Lady of Fatima.
* According to Fr Dupuis SJ: "The religion of the future will be a general converging of religions in a universal Christ that will satisfy all."
* The congress issued a statement claiming that "No one religion can eradiate another or strengthen itself by downplaying others and an open dialogue is the way to building bridges and tearing down centuries of hate."
* Those opposing this new orientation of Fatima are "old-fashioned, narrow-minded, fanatical extremists and provocateurs", says Msgr Guerra.
