Updated | Claiming that some Americans are preparing for a coming war with Moscow, Russian state-owned television explained to the country’s residents how to stock their bunkers with water and basic foodstuffs in case a war breaks out.
Warning that the potential conflict between the two superpowers would be “catastrophic,” an anchor for Russia’s Vesti 24 showed off shelves of food, recommending that people buy salt, oatmeal and other products that can last a long time on the shelves if they plan to hide in a bunker. Powdered milk lasts five years, while sugar and rice can last up to eight years, the newscaster explained before showing videos of pasta cooking in a bomb shelter.
Time to call out Pope Francis’s disgraceful failure to consecrate Russia as detailed in the Fatima apparitions. Catholic Truth is urging all our bloggers and readers/visitors to this site to use the means of communication available to contact the Pope today to urge him to obey Our Lady’s exhortation to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. Below, a template letter for those who would appreciate some help in penning their email or letter. To contact Pope Francis either email theVatican’s press office at firstname.lastname@example.org [Ed: this doesn’t work – sorry] or write to him via the postal service, as follows: His Holiness, Pope Francis PP. 00120 Via del Pellegrino. Citta del Vaticano.
Your Holiness (or Dear Pope Francis),
In light of the increasingly grave geo-political situation, where the possibility of imminent nuclear war is currently the subject of much open commentary in the secular news outlets, I respectfully write to request that you set out the means by which the Bishops of the world will join with you in consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as Our Lady requested through the Fatima seer, Sister Lucia. As you will know, following the initial apparitions in 1917, Our Lady reappeared to Sister Lucy on June 13, 1929 at Tuy, Spain, when in a great and sublime vision representing the Blessed Trinity, she announced that “the moment has come for God to ask the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart. By this means, He promises to save Russia.” Our Lady promised that this Consecration of Russia would result in a period of world peace
Clearly, the previous consecrations of the world by your predecessors have not satisfied God’s plan of salvation. Far from enjoying world peace, we are increasingly threatened by the danger of nuclear war. God wishes Russia – the first nation on earth to publicly disown the very existence of God and to embrace atheistic communism – to be consecrated, by name, to His Blessed Mother, and if we are to avert the danger of all-out nuclear war, this Consecration must be fulfilled.
I urge you, therefore, Holy Father, to make the necessary practical arrangements to pray this Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in union with the world’s bishops, as a matter of the utmost urgency. You alone, out of all the prominent religious and political leaders in the world today, hold the key to world peace in your hands, by virtue of your unique office. Yours etc.
If enough letters/emails are received at the Vatican, it just might make a difference. Certainly, in supernatural terms, it will make a difference because God is never outdone in generosity and He will reward our efforts with grace, that’s for sure. So, feel free to use, amend or discard the above – but please DO write: we cannot simply lament the Pope’s neglect – we must make sure that we are not guilty of neglect of duty ourselves, and we do have a duty to do everything in our power, by prayer and all the practical means at our disposal, to remind him of the importance of the request from Heaven to consecrate Russia to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart. Over to you!
Apparently Russia is now a Christian country and Putin, the champion of Christian values, is in Syria solely to protect the Christian population. Putin is the Traditionalist’s friend because he has banned homosexuality. He should be supported simply by virtue of his enmity to our own godless Western leaders. Orthodoxy is a safe haven for the Traditional Catholic as the Catholic Church lurches towards apostasy in the form of liberal Protestantism, rampant Modernism and (soon) open schism. Fr. Malachi Martin said that “salvation will come from the east” so this means that Modernism in the Church and Vatican II will be swept away by Russia and then true religion will be restored. After all, according to Joanna Bogle and others, Russia has already been converted. (Funny that the period of peace doesn’t seem to have accompanied this conversion Joanna, but I suppose we can’t have everything).
Over the last eighteen months to two years these views have been heard more and more openly on some Traditionalist sites and blogs. Sadly, what these views have in common is that they are so full of factual inaccuracies, false assumptions and ignorant claims that this latest blip on the Traditionalist radar constitutes a material danger and really should be dismissed before it becomes an accepted part of the global Traditionalist mind-set.
The Remnant in the USA has on several occasions pushed the ideas in question. Although to be fair to him Michael Matt, the Remnant’s Editor, has in one or two recent articles rowed back somewhat from his earlier position (which tended to canonise Putin and ascribe to him a divine mandate of some sort), nevertheless he has led the way in promoting the trend in question, even banning posters who sought to balance his and others’ speculation and even pagan-like numerology (the 100 years meme) with a dose of Russian reality.
My objective is to show that these views about Russia are all false, resting as they do on a total lack of understanding of the current nature of Russia and of its so-called Christian revival. Suffering from a sense of helplessness and even despair at the vacuity of Western policy, and the state of the Church and society, it is my contention that those who hold these views are investing an inchoate hope in a “false Messiah” and that this hope will surely be dashed. Indeed, ultimately I hold that those who place their hope in Putin and Russia are guilty of a serious spiritual fault in that they are putting their trust in politics and in a man rather than in Jesus Christ.
My own interest in this subject comes from my own long association with Russia. Having been a student of its literature and history from my early teenage years, in the middle 1990’s I started what was to be a twelve-year plus period living in the former USSR. During that time I lived for nearly three years in Central Asia and then more than ten years in Moscow. I speak Russian, I am married to a Russian, I owned a business in Russia, I know the history of the country and of the Russian Orthodox Church. The years I spent there changed me profoundly. Russia will be part of me until I die. I therefore consider myself well-qualified, at least amongst Traditionalists, to comment on Russian affairs.
Since 1991, it’s true that around 6,000 churches have been built or rebuilt. Ancient monasteries and convents again contain many religious. It is normal for many Russian Orthodox to attend Easter and Christmas liturgies and popping into a church to light a candle is an unremarkable activity. Around 75% of Russians are now baptised. The country’s leadership appear with high prelates on TV on important feasts and all dutifully make the Sign of the Cross (albeit badly) at the appropriate moments. There is a genuine piety to be found among believers. And as everyone knows, Russia has enacted a law preventing the advertising or marketing of homosexuality. All this is of course to be applauded. But does it mean that Russia is now a Christian country? What is the state of Russian society? This should tell us how real is Russia’s Christian life.
State of Russian Society
According to a Moscow Times survey, only 1% of the population attends the Divine Liturgy on Sunday. This is almost exclusively the old, particularly the women. The same picture is found in another study (http://tinyurl.com/q5r8xvb).
Another Moscow Times survey from last year showed that both trust in the Moscow Patriarchate and support for the building of a new church in one’s immediate locality have plummeted. Has indeed the high-water mark of the restored Patriarchate been reached within twenty-five years of the fall of the Communist regime? It may be so: I am told by one Catholic religious in Moscow that the number of students in Russian Orthodox seminaries has drastically fallen in the last two or three years. (Source: http://tinyurl.com/hu365zo).
While the excellent law against homosexual “propaganda” certainly exists, so do gay clubs. Homosexuality is not criminalised nor is its practice restricted in any way. (Source: http://tinyurl.com/z56lzmd).
Abortions continue by the million. Both Ukraine and Russia have debated banning abortion in their respective parliaments but neither have done so. (Source: http://tinyurl.com/jm55enf).
AIDS cases are now in excess of one million and are rising fast. Drug-resistant TB has broken out of the prisons where it was nurtured for decades and is now rife among the general population. (Source: http://tinyurl.com/hbqgb6u).
Drug use is decimating the younger generations in the cities, particularly in Siberia and other places riven by poverty and is growing out of any control. (Source: http://tinyurl.com/zeq85q6).
The moral leadership of the government is nil. Putin and those close to him are thieves, knaves, plunderers and looters on a scale beyond the imagination. The very language they use between themselves is the colourful (and utterly vile) “blatnoi yezik”, or “thieves tongue” of the “vor v zakone” (thieves-in-law, aka the mafia).
Putin has not conducted any reform of Russia’s economy which would eventually benefit the poorest. The reason is that if he did, his entire system would be in danger of collapse and his power with it. The pigs with their snouts in the trough would get rid of Putin before they allowed other pigs to take their place. Battles between oligarchs are at the moment controlled by Putin as the top Godfather, but if too many pigs lost their place at feeding time that control might be lost. Billions upon billions of dollars are at stake. Some thoughtful Russians I know now worry about civil war conducted between rival oligarchic armies fighting for control of Russia’s natural resources.
Crime as ever pervades Russian life. Life expectancy, particularly for men, is static at around 60 due to alcoholism, a collapsed health service and hopelessness. Corruption pervades Russian life. There is no rule of law as understood in the West. Innocence is lost at a very young age (Source:http://tinyurl.com/zgkbch9).
Many Russians are turning to eastern sects, philosophies and religions. Buddhism, Indian “spirituality”, Siberian shamanistic paganism: all these are growing in popularity. (Sourcehttp://tinyurl.com/zdwfkjz).
State of the Orthodox Church
As ever, the Orthodox Church is the creature of the State. It has been so since even before the Church’s submission to Tsar Peter and his suppression of the Patriarchate. Imagining the Russian Orthodox Church without the crutch of the Russian State is impossible. In return for the State’s provision of tax benefits, cash, Presidential and Prime Ministerial time and constant TV exposure, the Church plays the part of chief cheerleader for the Russian regime. It has always been thus and it certainly is now. Both parties gain but one does wonder who or what the Russian Orthodox Church really worships. Is it the Holy Trinity or the Russian State?
For some, the Russian State undoubtedly comes in first place. For Father Vselovod Chaplin for example, America is Satan, Britain is his chief demon and God demands nuclear warfare against both. And, according to Chaplin, Russian women should have their reign of debauchery ended by the practice of universal female genital mutilation. This oaf has said so many mad things that the so-called philosophy of “Eurasianism”, as developed and taught by Alexander Dugin, seems almost sane in comparison. For Dugin, by the way, the SS was the perfect society and as usual for fanatics of Slav nationalism, the chief enemy for him is the Anglo-Saxon, which means Britain and America. Today’s Russia is semi-fascist and so is its national Orthodox Church.
There is much else that is deeply rotten in the Russian Orthodox Church. Apart from the very ugly nationalist ideology and greed for material reward (remember the Patriarch and his $450,000 watch?), anti-Catholic sentiment remains very high. As told directly to me by a Catholic priest in Russia (and confirmed by an Anglican), some years ago the Catholic Archdiocese in Moscow had to go through the local Anglican vicar to arrange meetings with the Patriarchate. The Catholic side would state what subjects it wished to discuss, the Patriarchate would say how many BMWs and Mercedes it wanted in return for the meeting. (Ecumenism Russian Orthodox style …).
No, the Russian Orthodox Church inspires no confidence. It is this body that is to save the West? I think not. In fact, despite its high position in State and society, it may well have already entered a period of decline only two decades after the fall of Communism.
Putin is lauded as a strongman who runs rings around Western leaders and makes them look foolish. There can be no doubt that he is a clever man. But consider: if you do not operate by the norms of international law, if you are prepared to lie and cheat your way to your objectives, it is an easy thing to surprise those who do operate by the norms of international law and those who do more or less, in their dealings with each other, tell the truth and act honestly. Thus Putin is a very strong tactician but no strategist. Russia may contain much of genius but in global terms, whatever its showing in Syria (a Russian success only possible because Obama reneged on his “red line” promise) its influence is that of a regional power.
Led by thugs and gangsters, Russia has no vision beyond its own preservation. This indeed is the real key to understanding Russian policy. Russia is an almost-failed State governed by serial liars, thieves and Secret Police operatives. I can personally confirm that FSB officers still, to this day, have a statuette of Felix Dzerzhinsky, the mass murderer who founded the CHEKA, on their desks.
Is Putin a believer? He may be, it’s truly difficult to say. I think he probably is, but that this belief does not prevent him from doing all manner of murder in the interests of his true god who is Mother Russia. God for the Orthodox is a strongly Slavic nationalist deity.
Did Putin ask the Pope to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart? I do not believe it for a moment. The Orthodox Church is extremely hostile to Fatima and Putin would not antagonise the Patriarchate unnecessarily. Nevertheless, does Russia have a role to play in the cosmic battle currently being fought? Yes, it does: Our Lady has told us so. If the Consecration does not come as Heaven wished it, then instead of being converted, Russia may well play the part of being the instrument of God’s punishment on an unfaithful, godless world which has long since been soaked in Russia’s own atheistic, Bolshevik errors. It is interesting that some pre-Revolutionary Orthodox prophecy supports a very old traditional reading of Scripture which states that Gog and Magog is Russia.
We can see I think that the real attraction of Putin to Traditionalists is that he provides clarity whereas our own leaders are mired in leftist social engineering (through mass immigration) and political correctness, and thus are imposing on us a revolutionary globalist ideology that is straining our system and very civilisation to the limit. Similarly, the attraction of the Orthodox Church to many Traditionalists is the beauty of its liturgy and music. But do either of them offer the West anything that we cannot better find by restoring what has been taken, both from our society and from the Church? I strongly believe not.
The waters have been badly muddied for the Traditionalist by those useful idiots in the modern Church who hold that Fatima is fulfilled and Russia has already converted. Aside from the asinine suggestion that Our Lady would be pleased by the conversion of Russia to a schismatic sect, the reality of Russian society today cannot but exclude the possibility of Fatima’s completion. I myself am not so hard on this question as many Traditionalists: I am quite able to accept that the 1984 Consecration might have led to the fall of Communism and a partial conversion of Russia; however, this was not what Our Lady requested, desired or promised. That there is no period of peace is self-evident. So the likes of Joanna Bogle not only fool themselves but sadly many others too and the popularity of Putin among so many Traditionalists is at least indirectly and in part due to this false Fatima propaganda.
Following Putin and trusting in Russia is a dangerous temptation and one that must be resisted. The true solution to our woes, which are real, is the restoration of a truly Catholic (= Christian) civilisation, not the adoption, out of despair, of a rotten schismatic and heretical Orthodox one.
Holy Father, The World Needs Your Intervention! Consecrate Russia as Our Lady Requested
Russia and the United States, both armed with nuclear weapons, are engaged in a growing conflict over events in Ukraine. Now is the time to honor Our Lady’s request for Russia’s consecration to Her Immaculate Heart in order to bring peace to the whole world.
As Our Lady promised at Fatima: “If My requests are granted, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.”
Most Holy Father:
Nearly one hundred years ago the Mother of God appeared to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal and told them Heaven’s plan for peace: “I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”
Some have heeded Our Lady’s request for the First Saturday devotion, but the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart remains undone. By this Open Letter we petition Your Holiness for the Consecration of Russia. The urgency and absolute necessity of this act cannot be overstated, as we hope to demonstrate to Your Holiness. Click here to read entire Open Letter from Fatima Center
On this, the 97th anniversary of the first Fatima apparition, we should pray especially for the situation in Ukraine and for the graces needed for the Pope to obey God’s wishes for the Consecration of Russia, as revealed through Our Lady of Fatima. Let’s pray, too, that Fr Gruner’s Open Letter bears fruit. If it can bring forward the glorious day when the Consecration will be performed, that is, perhaps, about all we can expect at this stage in the Fatima-prophesied “diabolical disorientation” afflicting the upper hierarchy.
Happy Feast Day to all our bloggers. Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us
The Sorrowful Madonna speaks: “People pay no attention to my motherly warnings, and thus the world is falling headlong evermore into an abyss of iniquity. Nations shall be convulsed by terrible disasters, causing destruction and death.
“Russia, spurred on by Satan, will seek to dominate the whole world and, by bloody revolutions, will propagate her false teachings throughout all the nations, especially in Italy. The Church will be persecuted and the Pope and the priests shall suffer much.”
Sister Elena Aiello speaks: “Oh, what a horrible vision I see! A great revolution is going on in Rome! They are entering the Vatican. The Pope is all alone; he is praying. They are holding the Pope. They take him by force. They knock him down to the floor. They are tying him. Oh, God! Oh God! They are kicking him. What a horrible scene! How dreadful!”
“Our Blessed Mother is drawing near. Like corpses those evil men fall down to the floor. Our Lady helps the Pope to his feet and, taking him by the arm, she covers him with her mantle saying: ‘Fear not!’
“Flagstaffs (flying the Red flag over St. Peter’s dome and elsewhere) collapse, and power is gone out of the clubs of those evil brutes. These atheists are ever shouting: ‘We don’t want God to rule over us; we want Satan to be our master!’
Our Blessed Mother speaks again: “My daughter, Rome will not be saved, because the Italian rulers have forsaken the Divine Light and because only a few people really love the Church. But the day is not far off when all the wicked shall perish, under the tremendous blows of Divine Justice.”
In April 2011, Pope Benedict XVI approved the petition allowing for the Beatification of Venerable Elena Aiello. She was declared Blessed on September 14, 2011 (Feast of the Exaultation of the Holy Cross) at 17.30 in Piazza dei Bruzi in Cosenza, Italy. The proclamation of the Blessed was made by Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, along with Archbishop of Cosenza/Bisignano, His Excellency SalvatoreSource– click to read entire article.
Are these prophecies, which are so clearly complementary to the Fatima prophecies, coming true before our very eyes?
One of our readers in England emailed me a link to a disgraceful article penned by Joanna Bogle on her blog. To say that she’s been nasty about Father Nicholas Gruner, well known Fatima priest, is to say that she’s remained silent about the dissenting priests who make up the apostate Association of Catholic Priests in Ireland and every other dissident priest you care to name. Oops! She has! Remained silent, I mean. Her (very posh) ire is reserved, it seems, for the one priest in the entire world who has not failed to publicly promote the Fatima Message in its entirety, despite the unpopularity he suffers as a result.
The Useful Idiots of Vatican II
Lenin, it was, who coined the term “useful idiots” to describe those who went along with and even sought to spread “The Party” ignorant of the fact that it militated against their own best interests.
In his book, The Great Façade (of Catholicism) Christopher Ferrara applied the term to Catholics who, during the current crisis in the Church, accept and spread the Vatican party line on just about everything, Fatima included.
But Joanna Bogle, who describes herself as a “Catholic journalist and author”, just has to be the Vatican II Useful Idiot Par Excellence. No offence intended, of course. Just saying…
Quoting the reader who sent me the links to Joanna’s latest attacks on Father Gruner: she seems to have an obsession with this priest. He angers her, as I’ve already intimated, in a way that all the dissenters in the Church put together, don’t.
Cardinal Burke Attacks Father Gruner
In a recent rant, she could scarcely contain her excitement, her utter jubilation, because no less than Cardinal Burke agrees with her about Father Gruner: on her blog, she quotes him, as follows, from their private correspondence:
“Now – and this is important: Catholics need to know the truth about things (Ed: but only when it suits Auntie Joanna). Cardinal Raymond Leo Buke, prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, wrote to me on September 24th:
‘You are correct that there is much confusion about the message of Our Lady of Fatima, caused especially by Father Nicholas Gruner, a priest who is not in good standing in the Church, and that this confusion is harmful to many good people who are being led astray about the important message of Our Lady of Fatima.'”
Well, I think Fr Gruner will be very interested, not to say puzzled, to read that he’s not a priest in good standing, after all. Not that it’s anything to boast about these days; all sorts of dissenters remain “in good standing” – there’s Monsignor (there was no physical resurrection, no physical Real Presence) Loftus, for example, and Bishop Conry, Arundel & Brighton (conscientious contraception’s just fine and dandy with me…) springs to mind, along with a couple of dozen others whom I could name off the top of my head. Quicker just to recommend any edition of The Tablet – which was sold and promoted, by invitation, at one of Joanna’s daft exhibitions somewhere in darkest London some years ago, take note.
To belittle the Message of Fatima under any pretext, is to attack Our Lady. It is to peddle lies about Fatima. So if you wish to read the source of this latest attack on Our Lady of Fatima under the guise of a nasty attack on Father Gruner – click on the picture of Joanna Bogle…
Now I could – but won’t – quote from correspondence I’ve received myself from a Cardinal in the Vatican, whose opinion on the combined episcopates of the UK is somewhat at variance with the breathlessly gushing views of Mrs Bogle, who is the original Pollyanna with bells on: always something to be glad about… I suspect, had I mentioned Fr Gruner, “my” cardinal would have been at least as supportive of him as Cardinal Burke has been hostile. But, then, who cares what Cardinal Burke thinks about anything? Did he, or did he not, promise Daphne McLeod to address one of her conferences and then, at the last minute, cancel due to his apparent weakness of character-through-to-downright- cowardice in the face of criticism from the Church establishment in England? Suffice to say, I value Cardinal Burke’s opinion of Father Gruner about as much as I’d value (multiple child-killer) Ian Brady’s opinion of high court judges were it ever to reach the public record.
Overwhelming evidence that Russia has been converted
Like all those who believe that, because Russia is “in the world” and popes have consecrated the world to Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, everything is as it should be and all’s well with our war-torn, disaster ridden, child abusing, murderous, inter-faith, multicultural, anti-Catholic world, Mrs Bogle has ducked the challenge of demonstrating to the rest of us where on earth (literally) we can find the period of peace promised by Our Lady after the Consecration of Russia carried out, as she asked, by the Pope in union with all the bishops of the world. I, for one, would like to buy a house there. Soon.
Kid yourself not, Joanna Bogle is not going to be worrying about daft details like that. Not at all. “The Vatican” says it’s all been done to order and that’s good enough for dear old Mrs Bogle, who was made a Dame of St Gregory by Pope Benedict – loyalty to the party line does, it seems, pay off, at least in this world. Ever the Queen of Superlatives, she posted the announcement of this worldly honour on her blog, adding: I am overwhelmed and can’t write any more at the moment… So was I – couldn’t believe it. Where’s MY dame-hood or whatever it’s called? And when it comes, as come it surely must (or I’ll cause a fuss) will Fr Tim Finigan so beloved of the neo-Catholic majority come onto this blog to write his congratulations to me, as he did on Auntie Joanna’s blog: adding that the award is “richly deserved”? No, I don’t think so either. Signed, Shocked & Disappointed, Glasgow…
Incredibly, Mrs Bogle continues her attack on Fr Gruner as follows: “The Fatimists have found the going a bit difficult in recent years (because) evidence of Russia’s conversion, which Mary promised would happen after the consecration, is now overwhelming.” Read more here (and try not to laugh)
Fatima: The Bogle Brush-off – A response…
Christopher Ferrara, the well known American lawyer, penned a first class response to Jeff Mirus of Catholic Culture, one of the better known “useful idiots” in the USA recently and since every word of it applies equally to Joanna Bogle, we suggest you read it. Like Joanna Bogle, Jeff Mirus believes that those of us who seek the Consecration of Russia and publication of the missing part of the Third Secret, are a mere lunatic fringe. Here’s an extract referring to the Third Secret: Ferrara writes –
“Knowing less than nothing about this subject, Mirus (Bogle) would be unaware that the “fringe” conspiracy theorist Archbishop Pietro Sambi, who was merely the Papal Nuncio to the United States, recognized the strength of the case for a missing text. The “fringe” journalist Robert Moynihan, editor of the “fringe” publication Inside the Vatican, reported as follows on a conversation he had with the Archbishop not long before his death concerning my “fringe” book The Secret Still Hidden, wherein I marshal the abundant proofs for the existence of a missing text:
We were discussing the Third Secret of Fatima, the allegations that the Vatican has not published the entire text of the Third Secret as revealed to Sister Lucia, and the response of Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State, in a book where Bertone states that there is nothing more to be revealed. Sambi said, “Excuse me.” He got up, went out of the room, and came back with a book. “Here,” he said. “Do you know this book? You should read it.” It was Christopher Ferrara’s The Secret Still Hidden.
“Wait,” I said. “You are the Pope’s representative in the US, and you are urging me to read a book that questions what the Secretary of State wrote?” Sambi replied, “All I am saying is that there are interesting things worth reading in this book. And in the end, we are all after the truth, aren’t we? The truth is the important thing…”
Yes, the truth is the important thing. But not for Jeffrey Mirus (or Joanna Bogle). END. Source
I’m reliably informed that hubby, (Mr Bogle) is of a quite different mindset to his wife on certain matters ecclesiastical. If he’s reading this, and would like to contribute to our “Fly on the Wall” series of reports, we’d love to hear from him. Well, you can’t blame a girl for trying…
Fatima: The Bogle Brigade Brush Off – what can we do about it?
Well, there’s absolutely no point in wasting time composing a comment to post on Auntie Joanna’s blog – anyone who disagrees with her just disappears into cyberspace. I know – I’ve tried in the past. You can, however, email her to give away a generous piece of your mind. email@example.com
Above all, however, we must all pray hard for Fr Gruner. It’s the faithful priests like him, who will not compromise with the modernist stranglehold on the Church at the present time, including the Fatima cover-up, who are persecuted and bullied, insulted and calumniated far and wide. Our Lady of Fatima, Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for him.
As for Joanna and the rest of the Bogle Brigade – pray to St Jude.
Image of Our Lady of Fatima will be taken to Marian Day at the request of the Pope in October, at the Vatican, Pope Francisco consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
What is going on? Where did this craze come from to consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, when Our Lord has made clear that he wishes RUSSIA to be consecrated – by name. What is going on?
