One day the 10 secrets will belong to the past. At that point the world will be very different, for the better.
Secrets mark the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. This new era will be an era of peace, and therefore it will be much more widely understood why the Virgin Mary herself called herself Queen of Peace, when the first time in Medjugorje.
But in its present state of sin, humanity is not ready for it. And so the ultimate goal of the whole sequence of secrets is to cleanse, purify and humble men, bringing humanity back to its purpose and restoring the true proportions of the relationship between God and man.
in the early years Mirjana had more to say about the secrets in 1982 she had this to say about the 7th secret.
Concerning the seventh secret, Mirjana is frightened and prays to Our Lady for mercy on mankind:
“I have prayed; the punishment has been softened. Repeated prayers and fasting reduce punishments from God, but it is not possible to avoid entirely the chastisement. Go on the streets of the city, count those who glorify God and those who offend Him. God can no longer endure that.”
Concerning Purgatory: “There are many souls in Purgatory. There are also persons who have been consecrated to God – some priests, some religious. Pray for their intentions, at least the Lord’s Prayer, the Hail Mary, and the Glory Be seven times each, and the Creed. I recommend it to you. There is a large number of souls who have been in purgatory for a long time because no one prays for them.

Concerning Fasting: “The best fast is on bread and water. Through fasting and prayer, one can stop wars, one can suspend the laws of nature. Charity cannot replace fasting. Those who are not able to fast can sometime replace it with prayer, charity, and a confession; but everyone, except the sick, must fast.”

“You go to Heaven in full conscience: that which you have now. At the moment of death, you are conscious of the separation of the body and soul. It is false to teach people that you are reborn many times and that you pass to different bodies. One is born only once. The body, drawn from the earth, decomposes after death. It never comes back to life again. Man receives a transfigured body.”
Regarding a question asked about being bad all ones life and asking forgiveness: “Whoever has done very much evil during his life can go straight to Heaven if he confesses, is sorry for what he has done, and receives Communion at the end of his life.”
