Arga Writes Letter to Pope in Hospital

Wishing him a recovery, thanking him for revealing the third secret of Fatima and warning of the end of the world.

From HoustonChronicle.com - Pontiff's 1981 attacker offers cryptic wishes for his recovery:

"In a brief, handwritten letter in Italian, Agca wished the pope well.

But he also made apocalyptic references, referring to the end of the world.

'You and I suffer for the realization of a universal divine plan,' Agca said. 'I wish you a speedy recovery.'

Agca also thanked the pope for revealing the so-called 'third secret' of Fatima in 2000, a 1917 vision of a pope struck down by bullets and arrows but spared from death.

'I thank you for having revealed on May 13 the third secret of Fatima. Dear Pope, now you have to confirm the Divine Truth that we are at the end of the world,' Agca wrote.

'This is the last generation of humanity on planet Earth. Only like this will God give you health and miraculous strength for the coming years,' the letter says."
