The two Third Secret envelopes.

Top and middle: The front and back (showing wax seals) of the Third Secret envelope #1, bearing Sister Lucy’s handwritten notation of the “express order of Our Lady” that this envelope can only be opened in 1960. Bottom: Third Secret envelope #2, also bearing Sister Lucy’s handwritten warning “by express order of Our Lady” that also this envelope can only be opened in 1960.

Cardinal Bertone failed to mention the existence of these two envelopes, and the “express order of Our Lady” written on each, at any time from June 26, 2000 until he showed them on camera during the telecast of May 31, 2007. Bertone had always represented before May 31, 2007 that there was only one envelope and that Lucy had never received an order from the Blessed Virgin regarding 1960.

Note the differing lineation of the Portuguese words “Nossa Senhora” (Our Lady) in the first two lines of each envelope.
