In 1917, the Virgin Mary appeared to three simple village children in Fatima, Portugal. The apparitions spanned a six month period, were witnessed by upwards of 100,000 people and in due course received official recognition from the Catholic Church. The Virgin revealed certain secrets to the young seers, two of which foretold the Second World War and the spread of Communism. The Virgin stipulated that the so-called Third Secret should be released to the world no later than 1960, but when the time came the Church refused to do so.

The refusal provoked decades of controversy and speculation among the faithful, met by a confused web of disinformation on the part of the Catholic hierarchy. It was not until the year 2000 that a highly questionable version of the Secret was finally released, one that was easily debunked by two meticulously researched books by leading Italian commentators. It is one thing to prove that the Secret still remained a mystery however; it is quite another to explain why should this be so.

 

What is the Secret? Why should the Church feel so threatened by it? Until now, no-one has been able to offer satisfactory answers to these questions.

With the publication of The Dawning, Emmanuel Elliott puts forward what must have seemed to the Church to be a shocking explanation. According to this book, the essential message of the Third Secret of Fatima is that the Second Coming of Christ is imminent and that it will come from outside the Church – has in fact already happened - a scenario that would indeed have dismayed successive Vatican administrations.

Drawn to the search for spiritual Truth from the age of 16, Emmanuel frequently found himself overtaken by a force that felt like ‘a charge of high voltage electricity.’ This phenomenon often accompanied a series of extraordinary spiritual events and out-of-body experiences. His search intensified in his mid-fifties when he withdrew from his business interests to embark on a quest that took him to Indonesia, Bosnia- Herzegovina, Portugal, Spain, Mexico and the United States.

It was in America that he met Mark Week, a wealthy businessman with a not dissimilar life path. He too had been subject to powerful spiritual experiences. He too felt impelled to give up his business interests and travel the world in search of an explanation.

In Fribourg, Switzerland, Mark Week met the man who was to provide the missing piece of the puzzle. Bernard Fay was a former Director of the French National Library, now living the life of a Catholic lay contemplative. Monsieur Fay was a close friend of Pope Pius XII and had just returned from a stay of three months with the Pontiff at Castel Gandolfo. M. Fay proved to be one of the few men on earth able to corroborate the insights that had brought Mark to his door.

“We know that we are about to see the Second Coming of Christ,” he divulged, “We know that it will come from outside the Church, and we know that it will come from the East.”

He went on to tell Mark that all four of the acknowledged mystics within the Church at that time were receiving indications that pointed to the same conclusion. These included Sister Lucia, the only surviving seer of Fatima.

What Mark had to say dovetailed perfectly with one of Emmanuel’s own experiences: a revelation that all that had happened to him was ‘a manifestation of the Second Coming.’

The Dawning penetrates to the core of the enigmatic Third Secret and to the truth of the Virgin Mary’s message to the children of Fatima. It includes copies of letters to Pope John Paul II and to the then Cardinal Ratzinger. It includes a personal testimony from a Benedictine monk who had also been exposed to the same spiritual phenomenon.

This book is a searing account of one man’s search for Truth as he battles with fear and human frailty in the face of overwhelming spiritual experiences. In the words of one reviewer, a biblical scholar, “this is a compelling first-hand account evoking aspects of The Da Vinci Code.” Another writes, “Emmanuel has written a real life spiritual adventure story that reveals the amazing possibilities of change within each of us.” Yet another states, “This is a message that could change the world.”
