Dear Father Gruner and all:
I wish to thank you for the most recent copy of The Fatima Crusader. Its coverage of the Holy Rosary renewed again my thirst for this devotion.
Right now, in these dangerous times we need to pray the Rosary more than ever. You did not need to inform me of the threats but did inspire me to call on my pastor (I'm in a Cathedral Parish here) to preach and push the Rosary and Scapular in these most dangerous times.
I even gave the clergy my copy of The Fatima Crusader, after reading it, along with a copy of St. Louis de Montfort's The Secret of the Rosary. Yesterday I started calling on friends to begin a Novena of the Rosary...
Thank you again,
A. Johnson, MI
Dear Father Gruner,
I most sincerely apologize for not having responded sooner... However, your work has not gone unnoticed. You have played a great part in my rediscovering the old Latin Mass. The Devil's Final Battle has brought into focus the many concerns that I've observed and felt at my own Catholic church. I've never felt comfortable with Communion in the hand. I felt it disrespectful. Recently, the Tabernacle has been moved to the rear of the church, next to the crying room. The final straw was (I did not attend this Mass, so I consider it 3rd hand information) when the celebrating priest, in his homily, said that too much devotion was given to Mary and Saints ... that less should be given to them and more to Christ! It was my understanding that devotion to Mary and the Saints is what leads you to Christ. My mother and I now attend one of only 3 Traditional Latin Masses still said here...
It was through daily recitation of the Holy Rosary (which I committed to you via e-mail at your web site, one year ago May) that has led me to what I believe to be the True Mass. Thank you very much for your persistence. I am 40 years old and have never seen the Tridentine Mass. I am truly amazed at the differences from that of the Novus Ordo. I am elated at finally finding the true presence of Our Lord and His Sacrifice.
I know you are a busy man. This letter became longer than I intended, but in no way expresses fully the influence you have had and still have on my journey. Thank you very much. You have my support and more importantly my prayers. By the way, at the end of each Mass, Father C. expresses the intention of the Consecration of Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart. Thank you Father Gruner and God Bless You!
