|Dear Father Gruner,
No matter what those who seek to destroy you do, I know that you will continue in the Lord's will. Your suffering is doing more good than I can imagine.
Your life, by its example, is a source of inspiration for me and I'm sure for many others. Satan's tricks will, in the end, avail him nothing.
Thank you for your efforts to spread the truths of Fatima and the true Church. My life and the lives of my wife and children have been made much more Catholic due to your crusade. Saint Mary's love for you must be beyond our understanding.

Dear Father Gruner,
I was delighted to receive your letter and Fatima booklet.
I have always been a devotee of Our Lady of Fatima. In 1971 my sister Joan, who had married in a Registry Office, was dying of cancer and we could not get a priest in to her. However, on the 13th of May, a new nurse came to look after her. Lying on the bedside table was a book A Guide to the Vatican. The only sign. Her husband had put it there in case she would like to look through it in her lucid moments. The nurse told the priest of the parish where Joan lived about the book. He called the following day, only to be told by her mother-in-law that they didn't want any Catholic Priest. We felt very encouraged and prayed the Rosary. On the 17th of May, we were able to get a priest in and my sister was able to receive all the Last Rites. She had looked so sad and Dad said he thought the sadness was worse than the cancer.
She was totally transformed afterwards, and had a very big smile on her face. She went into a Nursing Home and actually died with a rosary in her hand.
On May 13th, a Statue of Our Lady of Fatima was brought to Walsingham, our National Shrine to be crowned by the local bishop and I just felt that Our Lady had arranged everything.
I might add that I was very pleased to find that there was someone who was fighting for Our Lady's Message and am very sorry that you are so persecuted by those who should know better.
My other sister and I say 15 decades of the Rosary every day. I look forward to hearing from you in the future and can assure you of prayers.
Bye for now, God Bless,
