News from the Apostolate
Apostles of the Green Scapular:
The many miracles of conversion worked by God through Mary’s Green Scapular are positive proof that we can save millions of souls simply by using prayer and this unique sacramental. Heaven is inviting us to work miracles in our lives and those of our loved ones.
All members of the Apostles of the Green Scapular have a special commitment to glorify Our Lady by converting and saving souls through Her Green Scapular. To help us achieve our goal, we have set our number one priority this year as putting together a Green Scapular Workshop where volunteers can produce thousands of Scapulars per week at a fraction of the cost of buying them from outside sources. We have the volunteers ready and waiting to do the work, but we need to raise the funds necessary to buy the machinery and materials to produce and distribute these miracle makers by the millions.
We have many helpers who will distribute the Green Scapular and over 300 people who will make Green Scapulars, and we are grateful to each and every one of you for your assistance.
If you have not already joined the Apostles of the Green Scapular, please do so now by calling us at 1-800-263-8160 or writing to us at the address in “Reader Mail” in this Newsletter.
Green Scapular Miracle:
Dear Father Gruner,
I would like to tell you of our devotion and experience with the Green Scapular.
Our three boys attended a boys’ school in New Orleans. The school roof was being repaired and something minute blew off and hit our eight-year-old son on the eyeball. The eye looked fine when he got home, but he complained of a headache. I gave him an aspirin and he took a nap. He said that his eye hurt when he awoke. I checked his eye and the iris was all black. We took him to emergency. He was admitted to the hospital and immediately sedated. We were told they would try to save his eyeball, that was all we could hope for. He was blind in his eye. It was hemorrhaging from behind the eye, and the sight was completely gone.
The next morning when I dropped our other two boys at school, I went in the convent to tell Sister what had happened and that he would be out of school for some time. She asked me to wait a while, when she returned, she gave me a Green Scapular and the brochure that accompanies it. She told me to put the Scapular on his bed post and say the prayer on it and that the nuns would pray for him too. I promised the Blessed Mother I would distribute the Green Scapular if She would please save my child’s eye. He was hospitalized for over a month.
On April 7, 2001, he was 51 years old. He has both eyes, has never worn glasses and he sees out of both eyes. He may need reading glasses soon. He carries his Scapular on his person all the time.
I have been distributing the Scapular ever since he was eight years old at the time.
The first Green Scapulars I purchased were 5¢ each, including the brochure. Over the years they have increased in price. The last ones I bought in December were 40¢ each.
I will be delighted to help in making the Scapulars. I am hoping to get the help of some of the ladies at our parish center.
Please accept my check in the amount of twenty five dollars for the kits - send me 4 please. Use the remaining $15.00 to send kits to someone who doesn’t have the funds to pay for them. Thank You. Mrs. S, Louisiana

Chronology of a Cover-Up:
The booklet Chronology of a Cover-Up has been updated to include the latest events in the silencing of the Fatima Message. It is currently being formatted and will be sent to be printed shortly. We continue to pray that funds will be available to mail this out to you and other members as soon as it is available.
Seminaries Receive Books:
Nothing is ever perfect, and that includes the condition of books shipped to us by both publisher and printer. Sometimes it is the discoloration of water damage on the page edges. Other times it is a torn or marked cover. However, we did find a good use to put them to. Again, through the wonderful help of others, these books are shipped to seminaries in Third World countries for their libraries. Recently, a call for help from a retreat center in Nigeria gave us another opportunity to pass on the traditional teaching of the Church by supplying some of these books for a library there.
As Rally attendance continues to soar, so does devotion to our Blessed Mother. Recently, we traveled to New Hampshire where hundreds met and prayed with Father Nicholas Gruner. All bowed their heads in silent contemplation as they prayed for the Blessing of Our Lady.
Both young and old alike held the Rosary that was so dear to their heart, tightly, as they prayed in unison. Do not miss Father when he comes to your area. This summer and autumn we plan to travel to Toronto, Ontario; San Antonio, Texas; New Orleans, Louisiana; Pittsburg, PA, and other locations not yet finalized! Come and join us as we pray the Rosary, listen to talks by Father Gruner and special guests, and get enrolled in the Brown Scapular.
