Edit: to put it bluntly, OnePeterFive has a lot more credibility than the Vatican Press Office. There's no mention of Bishop Kurt Krenn's allegation that Benedict said that the Secret wasn't complete, either. If it really were Benedict, he probably would have denounced Krenn as well. Some might remember that we were one of the first to mention this issue in English way back in 2014.
Here's the Neoconservative commerce website Kath.net's report:
Emeritus Pope responds to speculation of US and Italian media - "The publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete"
Vatican City (kath.net/KAP) In an unusual move, Benedict XVI. has [allegedly] reacted to speculation about secret parts of Our Lady of Fatima messages being rejected. Allegations that he had personally spoken of unpublished passages of the "Third Secret of Fatima", were "pure invention" and "absolutely not true", said the Pope Emeritus on Saturday through the Vatican Press Office. [If anyone has a record of fabrication, it's them.]
A week ago, the US website OnePeterFive had reported, citing the earlier moral theologian Ingo Dollinger, that Joseph Ratzinger had acknowledged as prefect of the CDF shortly after the release of the "Secrets of Fatima" in 2000 in a telephone conversation with Dollinger that the book is not complete. Among the suppressed portions were parts of the vision that took place in 1917 in Fatima, which concern "a bad council and a bad Mass" which were imminent in the near future.
OnePeterFive's story had been taken up in the last few days by individual Italian media. Benedict XVI. now denies having ever spoken with Dollinger about Fatima. To the question of the Vision report he stated verbatim: "The publication of the third secret of Fatima is complete."
There are always speculations as to the scope and interpretation of the messages that were received by the three Portuguese child seers in several visions in 1917. The minutes of the first two apparitions were published in 1941. The third part, which was initially secret, remained so and was sent to the pope personally, which had been published in 2000. It contained visions that have been associated with the Pope's assassination in 1981 and the communist dictatorships in Eastern Europe.
In the first "secret" the Mother of God calls humanity to repentance in view of serious threats. In dark pictures war, famine and persecutions of the Church, in particular attacks of militant atheism against the Church are portrayed.
The third text speaks of a bishop dressed in white, who was shot by soldiers. This vision was associated later with the assassination attempt on John Paul II. May 13, 1981st The Pope himself had attributed his miraculous rescue of Our Lady of Fatima and the bullet that had injured him, given to the Portuguese pilgrimage site.
