About the Authors

John Salza, J.D. is an attorney and acclaimed Catholic apologist, author and speaker. He lectures internationally about the Message of Fatima. In May 2010 at the Fatima Challenge conference in Rome, Salza publicly cross-examined Vatican journalist Giuseppe De Carli, co-author with Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, of the book The Last Seer of Fatima. This historic confrontation resulted in additional evidence that there is a missing text of the Third Secret of Fatima which the Vatican, under the leadership of Cardinal Bertone, has suppressed (more in this book). Salza, who is fluent in Italian, has also interviewed Andrea Tornielli, Paolo Rodari, and other respected Vatican journalists in connection with the ongoing cover-up of the Third Secret.

Mr. Salza is a chief contributor to Fatima TV, a 24-hour Catholic television station located in Rome and broadcast throughout Italy and northern Europe, where he hosts in the Italian language the daily apologetics series Apologetica in Breve, as well as programming and interviews about Fatima, Freemasonry, Vatican II and other Catholic topics.

He has been a featured guest on Catholic Answers Live, Kresta in the Afternoon, The Voice of Catholic Tradition, Sacred Heart Radio, Spirit Catholic Radio, In the Spirit of Chartes, and Relevant Radio's The Drew Mariani Show, The Morning Air, and Searching the Word, where he has featured many series on biblical apologetics and also served as program host. Salza has also had a daily apologetics program on Relevant Radio called "Relevant Answers" and EWTN Radio called “Catholic Q&A.” Salza has also appeared on the Eternal Word (EWTN) to discuss a variety of apologetics topics. Mr. Salza is a columnist for The Remnant Newspaper, Catholic Family News, The Fatima Crusader, and also serves as President of Apologetics for the American Catholic Lawyers Association.
