In a recent letter from Father Gruner he said things are changing in Rome. While in Rome Father Gruner said a high ranking Vatican prelate came up to him and told him to keep up the good work. It turned out that it was Cardinal Sodano's secretary. Father Gruner said before the Consecration Now conference in Rome this past May Pope Benedict said there will be no consecration this time. For some reason after the Consecration Now conference the Pope changed his mind and decided to consecrate Italy to Our Lady.
In the most recent letter that accompanies the Summer 2011, Issue 99 of The Fatima Crusader Father Gruner again says things are changing in Rome and writes;
After his address, Pope Benedict passed our group and blessed Our Lady's Statue. Amazing! Nothing happens by accident. Providence is always at work.
The Pope Has Blessed Our Statue And Our Efforts!
Now we must help the Holy Father in every way we can. He wants to perform the consecration. He even consecrated Italy to Our Lady after our conference - with the bishops of Italy.
In this letter Father Gruner is asking us to get Issue 99 of The Fatima Crusader into the hands of every bishop in the world. Father Gruner also says, "Along with The Fatima Crusader, I want to offer every bishop free DVDS of the conference talks. At the very least, if you will help me, I can offer them the talks by their fellow bishops."
Father Gruner is referring to the three bishops that spoke at the Consecration Now conference.
Father Gruner highlights some of what is in this issue of The Fatima Crusader including talks from the conference by himself, Bishop Khoarai, Bishop Mata Guevara, Bishop Fortunatus Lukanima, Coralie Graham, Father Paul Kramer and Christopher Ferrara, all ending with: CONSECRATE RUSSIA!
Father Gruner ends the letter by saying;
So, please, stay with Our Lady's Apostolate a little longer. Her triumph is close - very close. Let's not rest until every bishop in the world is ready to join the Pope in the one simple act that will save the world and countless souls.
There is not a person on the planet that has worked as hard as Father Gruner to see the Consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart. He truly deserves our support.http://www.fatima.org/
