I translated it via Google Translator; so it's very very stilted and a rough translation (not terribly good; but "too literal" and not enough dealing with correct phraseology).

Thank you Rosarium, glgas and RavenontheCross for your assistance. The quote, according to the "internet documentation" suggest it is from an adrress given on 10/13/1977 on the 60 Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions. But I couldn't find it on www.vatican.va. Any one know where those might be kept on the Vatican website?
It was posted earlier: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/paul_v...29_it.html

Quote:Riferendosi alla situazione della Chiesa di oggi, il Santo Padre afferma di avere la sensazione che «da qualche fessura sia entrato il fumo di Satana nel tempio di Dio».

Quote:Referring to the situation of the Church of today, the Holy Father says that you have the feeling that some crack has entered the smoke of Satan in the temple of God. "

The Vatican link refers to Pope Paul VI's speech given on 29 June 1972 and therefore is not the same as the one the thread starter referred to.

We all agree. It's just too bad His Holiness didn't do anything about it.

Or ask how did this apostasy come about.

I can't find the document

I don't think so. According to the Vatican site he did not make an address on Fatima in October. Using the wayback machine I did find a speech of his to Fatima pilgrims in May of 1977 but it 's only in Portuguese. Using google translate that comment doesn't seem to be anywhere: http://web.archive.org/web/2004082516084...ma_po.html
