    Pope meets with ex- KGB agent Putin and I guess it's mere chance serendipity that the Pope issues statements attacking capitalism ! wasn't this revealed in the 4th 5 6,7,8,9,10.11.12 ,13th finale or whatever Secret of Fatima! no wonder Popes kept the finale secret to themselves it's the Vatican that converts to Marxism not Russia converting to Catholcism! there's plenty of people out there right now formulating conspiracies like this and they actually believe it !The last couple of Masses I attended the Priest for the first time I ever recall spoke of the plight of American middle class workers ,thank God for the new Pope .
