Chronology of a Cover-Up
In October our Fatima office staff, with the help of a few volunteers, did a mailing of the Chronology of a Cover-Up booklet, which was translated into Portuguese. It was mailed to over 5,000 Catholics in Portugal.
Father received an especially warm welcome in the state of California on two Rosary Rallies in September. Approximately 800 people came to venerate the Miraculous Virgin Statue and hear Father Gruner’s words on Our Lady of Fatima’s Message.
Volunteers in the California area graciously donated their time and money to make Father’s visit a most special one. In the city of Ontario, the conference hall was donated and large fresh flower urns were placed beside Our Lady to accentuate Her beauty. And, in San Diego, Our Lady was greeted with a large choir who sang angelically the Fatima Avé as all participants sang with them. It was a great success!
During the month of September, our Volunteers distributed over 70,000 pieces of literature and sacramentals. Among these were a new prayer card, Our Lady’s Seven Sorrows, and the leaflet The Devotion of the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
If you are interested in becoming one of Our Lady’s Volunteers, or if you want more prayer cards, please call our volunteer hotline at 1-866-871-7723.
The Year of the Most Holy Rosary
We commend the Holy Father for declaring the 25th year of his pontificate the year of the Most Holy Rosary. We promote the Fatima Rosary which is the original 15 mystery Dominican Rosary with the addition of the Fatima prayer “O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need.” Our Lady of Fatima promoted the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary; in keeping with the Fatima Message, we do the same.
