re: “Fatima: Your Last Chance!”
“Education is a crucial theme for every generation, for it
determines ... THE FUTURE OF ALL SOCIETY.”
-Pope Benedict XVI in his Jan. 9, 2012 World Day of
Peace Message to the diplomatic corps in Rome.
Conversion of Saint Paul
Dear Friend of Our Lady,
The future of the world turns on what the young are taught.
So says Pope Benedict.
The future of the world turns on whether Russia will be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
So says Our Lady of Fatima.
The crucial question then becomes ...
IS THE MESSAGE OF FATIMA BEING TAUGHT
AND WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?
Young people are taught many things. They are taught that pleasure is all. That pornography is entertainment. That life is a brutal contest to see who can grab the most stuff and keep it.
But who is teaching the young about the most urgent thing they have to know? That their future will be determined by whether the Message of Fatima is obeyed!
And of all the young people whose minds are being shaped by their teachers, those who have the greatest potential for doing good or doing harm are those who will become priests and bishops.
This is why we are going to Rome
with “Fatima: Your Last Chance!”
This conference will be a trumpet blast in the halls of seminaries and Catholic colleges. We want the Message of Fatima to start resonating in the deepest recesses of the academic world until there is no student or seminarian who hasn’t heard it!
Why is this important? Because in those classrooms, the men who will stand at the altar in the person of Christ are having their Faith formed. And they in turn will form the faith of the millions of souls placed in their care!
THE POPE IS RIGHT. EDUCATION DETERMINES THE FUTURE!
And it is in Rome that those who govern Holy Mother Church are taught, and what they in turn will teach. It is the pontifical colleges of Rome that give us our theologians, our future Bishops and Cardinals - and Popes!
So we are going to Rome. We are inviting all the heads of the pontifical colleges to come to “Fatima: Your Last Chance!”
But we aren’t stopping there!
WE WILL INVITE STUDENTS - EVERY STUDENT WE CAN REACH!
IN ROME AND THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!
We want to place posters, advertisements, radio spots - use every means of publicity at our disposal - until Fatima becomes the talk of every seminary, college and campus in Rome!
But I can’t do this without you! I need your prayers. I need your alms. I need your faith and hope and determination!
For 34 years, Our Lady’s Apostolate has fought to make Her Fatima Message known and obeyed. In 2012, we will go to Rome for the 3rd year in a row with “Fatima: Your Last Chance!”.
The title of the conference is telling - time and opportunity are slipping away from us.Our last chance is here! Action is needed NOW!
And who is more ready to act than the young? Whose minds are more open to truth than those who are seeking it daily in their studies? And who influences the young more than their teachers?
This is why the Holy Father titled his speech to the world’s diplomats “Educating Young People in Justice and Peace.” This speech is the Church’s version of the State of the Union. In it, the Holy Father gives his vision for the world and its future.
Pope Benedict is a teacher at heart. And he knows the hearts of the young - so impressionable, so eager to learn what is true and good, and so eager to act on it.
And Our Lady knows the hearts of the young as only a mother can. She has almost always chosen to give Heaven’s message to children, rather than to the so-called wise of this world. Why?
Because children still love the truth more than their own vanity! And we all must become as little children before we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven!
Children are open to the truth, but they are also vulnerable to deception. Teachers have tremendous power over them, especially when they reach the universities and are away from the influence of home and family.
How many of you have watched the Faith of your children and grandchildren fall away under the influence of college teachers who mock the truths you taught them?
How many of us older priests have watched with heartbreak good young men enter seminaries as devout Catholics and leave these halls of learning full of doubt and wrong ideas?
During my years of traveling the world to make the Message of Fatima known and loved, I have had priests - young and not so young - say to me, “Father, I had no idea Our Lady of Fatima told us all of this. Why wasn’t I ever taught these truths?”
Because, as our good friend Bishop Mata has said in his enclosed letter, “All the forces of hell and the dark powers of this world have warred against it (Fatima). There has been a campaign to keep people from knowing about this plan.”
Nowhere has satan’s wall of silence about Fatima been more effective than in our seminaries and colleges. THIS MUST END!
We all cheered to see the Berlin Wall come down, ending years of oppression and virtual imprisonment. Help me tear down Satan’s Wall - the barrier that he uses to keep the Message of Fatima sealed off and unknown!
THIS IS WHY WE ARE GOING TO ROME
WITH “FATIMA: YOUR LAST CHANCE!”
WE ARE GOING TO TEAR DOWN SATAN’S WALL!
ARE YOU WITH ME?
The year 2012 has begun. How it will end, no one knows. It will mark the 95th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima. The year 2012 will bring us nearer to the fulfillment of Her requests, or the realization of Her dire prophecies!
We have the means for world peace! We have Our Lady’s promise. We have no alternative but misery, destruction, the loss of souls and the annihilation of nations. WHY DO WE DELAY?!
Come with me to Rome, if you can. Give all you can for the success of “Fatima: Your Last Chance!” Let’s not hold back! We can, with Our Lady’s help, save our children and save ourselves!
Yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Father Nicholas Gruner
|P.S.||I want to invite all the teachers, seminarians and students I can reach to “Fatima: Your Last Chance!” A massive - and massively expensive - campaign is needed to do this. It cannot be done without your help. Please, seize this opportunity with me! Fatima is your last chance, my last chance, the last chance for the world to avert the annihilation of nations Our Lady foretold!
|P.P.S.||Please join in our 12 Million Rosary Crusade for the Consecration of Russia especially asking Our Lady to bless and help our efforts with the conference in May.
