Letters from Our Friends
Dear Father Gruner:
On September 20, our daughter, age 25, was admitted to the hospital. She was put in ICU - dying of Cystic Fibrosis (a terminal disease without a medical cure). On Sept. 21, she was taken out of ICU and put in a regular hospital room. She is now with us and each day signs of her Cystic Fibrosis disappear.
This is the great news: before going to the hospital, she, her husband and in-laws said the Rosary wore their scapulars and took the Saint Benedict medal along.
She prays a lot to Padre Pio and also Saint Therese, the Little Flower. You too, Father Gruner, have been included in this miracle, because of the Masses you have done and Our Lady of Fatima water.
Our daughter drank this water before she left the hospital and it is miracle water.
Through Our Lady of Fatima, God has answered our prayers.
Padre Pio says the way we can show our love for him is by thanking the Blessed Virgin Mary.
In thanks to you, we are praying for wonderful miracles to happen ...
Please send more Holy water (Fatima water). We surely are going to continue praying for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. J.M.J.

Dear Father Gruner,
I truly know how important the Fatima Peace Plan is. We love Our Dear Lady of Fatima with all our hearts. My family says the Rosary every day and has relied on Our Dear Lady of Fatima in all we do. She sold our home for us and She bought the new one for us through the 54-Day Rosary Novena. The 54-Day Rosary Novena really and truly works. I have had it proved to me over and over.
I ask you dear Father Gruner, to put in a special prayer for the family of my brother.
One more request. Two years ago my daughter went to Fatima with your Apostolate and brought back some Scapulars from the Convent of the Carmelite Nuns where Sister Lucy lives. My granddaughter received one of those Scapulars and wears it constantly. The problem is that the Scapular is almost non-existent at this point. Could you please send me a couple or have someone buy some on the next Fatima trip? She loves the little ones that the Sisters made.
Thank you for the time that you took to read this letter. Thank you for your great Apostolic work. If it wasn't for The Fatima Crusader and the Catholic Family News, I don't know where I would get my true information. We pray every day for you and the Fatima Apostolate to remain strong. St. Athanasius did it, Father, and so can you, with Our Dear Lady of Fatima.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Joyce K., Lake Ariel, PA
From the Editor:
We continue to pray for Frank and Evelyn's daughter's full recovery. As soon as we read Joyce's letter, we placed her intentions in the Chapel at the Fatima Center where Father remembered them during his Masses, and we sent her Brown Scapulars.
We Would Like To Hear From YOU!
