Phew!It turns out the fall of Communism was predicted by La Mamasantisima

Vatican Discloses 'Third Secret' of Fatima

          By ALESSANDRA STANLEY

               FATIMA, Portugal, May
               13 -- The Vatican today
          disclosed the so-called Third
          Secret of Fatima, which for
          decades has kept this shrine of
          the Virgin Mary at the center
          of conspiracy theories and
          doomsday cults, describing the
          secret as a vision of the 1981
          assassination attempt on the
          pope.



          The Virgin of Fatima was said to have appeared before three shepherd
          children on May 13, 1917, and on five later occasions. Lucia was 10.
          Her cousins, Francisco and Jacinta, who were 8 and 7 at the time
          of           the
          first apparition, died of influenza a few years later. Believers
          say           two of
          the Fatima secrets were revealed in writing by Lucia de Santos in
          the
          1940's.

          The first foretold the end of World War I and the start of World
          War           II,
          the other predicted the spread, then the collapse of Communism
          and           the
          conversion of Russia.

          That prophecy, which came with a request that the church consecrate
          Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary -- John Paul II finally
          consecrated the whole world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1984
          -- made Fatima an ideological shrine for anti-Communists
          throughout           the
          cold war.
