Father Nicholas Gruner,
May 4, 1942 — April 29, 2015

The Management Team of the Fatima Center sadly announces the death of Father Nicholas Gruner, who passed away suddenly this evening. Father died at his office, working to his last breath on the goals to which he dedicated his 38 years in the priesthood — the promotion of the Message of Fatima, especially the release of the full Third Secret and the Consecration of Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.

Details concerning the wake/visitation and funeral for Father will be announced in the upcoming days. For now, in your charity, please pray for Father and for his Apostolate, which will continue to seek to bring his life's work to a successful conclusion.

GRUNER, Father Nicholas Nightingale - Passed away suddenly on April 29, 2015 at his office in Fort Erie, Ontario. He was the beloved son of the late Malcolm and Jessie (Mullally), the dear brother of the late Michael (Violet), the late Peter (Gay), the late Christopher (Ruth), the late Anthony (Wendy), Cecilia (Richard), and Jennifer (John), and the cherished uncle to 16 nieces and nephews and 27 grand nieces and nephews.

Father was born on May 4, 1942 in Montreal, Quebec. He graduated from McGill University with a degree in Commerce and earned post-graduate degrees in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (The Angelicum) in Rome. He was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in Avellino, Italy on August 22, 1976 and, in 1978, launched The Fatima Crusader - a magazine dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. Over the next 37 years, he and his apostolate, The Fatima Center, promoted the complete Fatima message worldwide through books and other literature, conferences, Rosary rallies, television programs, websites, and the distribution of millions of Rosaries and scapulars. He worked to his last breath to try to convince the Holy Father to release the entire Third Secret of Fatima and to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Father was a kind-hearted person with a warm laugh, who will be greatly missed by his family, the staff of the Fatima Center, and the countless souls all over the world whom he touched and whose faith he helped deepen.

Scenes from Father Gruner's Funeral

Father Gruner & The Message

The general Message of Fatima is not complicated. Its requests are for prayer, reparation, repentance, and sacrifice, and the abandonment of sin. Before Our Lady appeared to the three shepherd children, Lucy, Francisco and Jacinta, the Angel of Peace visited them. The Angel prepared the children to receive the Blessed Virgin Mary, and his instructions are an important aspect of the Message that is often overlooked.

Another Peculiar Friend of Francis

by Christopher A. Ferrara

In my column of May 19 I discussed the strange case of the Pope’s trusted ghostwriter and friend, Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernández, who wrote a book on “the art of kissing” as well as all or most of an apparently withdrawn draft of the upcoming papal encyclical on “climate change” - a matter on which the Pope has absolutely no competence or authority to pronounce in the first place.

The Cardinal’s remarks appeared in several prominent Catholic publications and media outlets, including Catholic News Service, The Catholic Herald in the United Kingdom and the online edition of the newspaper of the Holy See, L’Osservatore Romano

The Log in Fr. Paul Nicholson's Eye

May 18, 2015

The so-called "Missionary Preacher of the New Evangelization" from Canada, Fr. Paul Nicholson, a man who is perhaps best known for calling attention to himself by hurling outrageous invectives at sincere Catholics, has descended to new a low. Lately, he's been working overtime trashing the memory of Fr. Nicholas Gruner, a good and holy priest whose sudden passing apparently struck Fr. Nicholson as a golden opportunity for a little shameless self-promotion.
