The interview conducted by journalist Jose Maria Zavala with the now deceased Roman exorcist Fr. Gabriel Amorth is becoming more and more relevant. 

We are in the last time when we have to think carefully about our life today, how we live and whether we have recognized the Lord in our life. 

His arrival is very close and he will come like a thief in the night when you least expect it, are you ready for that meeting? Reverend Amorth personally knew St. Padre Pio for 26 years and often talked with him. 

Conversations with Padre Pio Zavala interviewed Father Amorth in 2011 and did not publish the interview until the exorcist’s death, when he published it in his book on Fatima. Here are some parts of the interview: “Forgive me for insisting on the Third Secret of Fatima: did Padre Pio connect the secret with the loss of faith in the Church itself?” 

Gabriela’s father furrowed his brows and stuck out his chin. He seemed hurt. “Indeed, he said, one day Padre Pio said to me very sadly: Do you know what, Gabriel? Satan has entered the very bosom of the Church and within a short time he will begin his rule over the false Church.”

 “Oh my God! Some kind of antichrist! When did he prophesy this to you?” “Probably around 1960, because I was already a priest then,” answered Amorth. ” Is that why John XXIII panicked so much about the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima so that people wouldn’t think he was some kind of antipope or something?” 

A faint smile appeared on Father Amorth’s face. Apostasy in the Church and the Third Secret of Fatima ” Did Padre Pio tell you anything else about coming disasters: earthquakes, floods, wars, epidemics, famine? 

Was he pointing to the same evils prophesied in the Holy Scriptures? “He didn’t care about such things, no matter how terrible they turned out to be. He attached importance only to the great apostasy in the Church. 

That question really bothered him and he prayed for it and showed a lot of his sufferings. He was crucified for that love,” Father Amorth said. “Third Secret of Fatima?” (contents at the end of the text, note a) “That’s right.” “Is there any way to avoid something so terrible, Father Gabriel?”

 “There is hope, but it is useless if it is not accompanied by actions. Let’s start with the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We pray the Holy Rosary, we pray and do penance, said Amorth.

Content of the Third Secret of Fatima (persecution and crucifixion of the Church), writes sister Lucija: “After the two parts that I have already explained, to the left of Our Lady and a little higher, we saw Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand. 

Flashing, it emitted flames that looked like they were going to set the world on fire. But the flames were extinguished in contact with the radiance that Our Lady radiated from her right hand. Pointing to the ground with his right hand, the Angel shouted in a strong voice: “Penance! Penance! Penance!” 

And we saw in the immense light that is God: ‘something similar to what people look like in a mirror when they pass in front of him’ a Bishop dressed in White ‘we had the impression that it was the Holy Father’.

The other Bishops, Priests, Monks and Nuns climbed the steep mountain, on the top of which was a Cross made of rough logs, like cork oak with bark. 

Before reaching there, the Holy Father passed through a large city half in ruins. Half-shaking, with a broken step, under the impression of pain and grief, he prayed for the souls of the corpses he met along the way. 

Having reached the top of the mountain, while he was kneeling at the foot of the great Cross, he was killed by a group of soldiers who shot bullets and arrows at him. And in the same way, Bishops, Priests, Monks and Nuns, and various laymen of different classes and positions died there one after the other. 

Under the two bars of the Cross were two Angels, each with a crystal sprinkler in his hand, in which they collected the blood of the Martyrs and sprinkled it on the souls that were moving towards God.”
