The Pope at Fatima

I'm not a big Fatima devotee, but I am following the Pope's visit to Portugal as closely as my work allows. Already in his impromptu remarks to journalists on the plane, the Holy Father has given some hints. Even more, he seems to be saying that the part of the famous "third secret" which predicted "the Holy Father will have much to suffer" referred not only to the assassination attempt on John Paul II's life, but on the sufferings the present Holy Father is undergoing because of the "sins that exist inside the Church" (Benedict's words), an experience the Pope says is "terrifying."
My prayers continue to follow him.
