    Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary

    Dear Friend of Our Lady,

    We are close — so close — to the consecration of Russia! The stage is set! The players are in position! All we need is for Pope Francis to realize exactly what Our Lady requested!

    ON OCT. 13, 2013, THE HOLY FATHER INTENDS TO CONSECRATE THE WORLD TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY!

    WE MUST LET POPE FRANCIS KNOW —

    OUR LADY WANTS HIM TO CONSECRATE RUSSIA!

    THIS MAY BE THE MOST CRUCIAL TASK OUR LADY HAS ENTRUSTED TO US!
    WE MUST DO ALL IN OUR POWER TO MAKE IT CLEAR — BEYOND ANY DOUBT — THAT THE POPE MUST CONSECRATE RUSSIA — BY NAME!!!

    We have several bishops who are willing to go to Pope Francis — together — and ask him to make the consecration as Our Lady requested, with all the bishops participating!

    We may add to the number of these bishops. But we must act fast! We have only weeks before the original statue of Our Lady arrives from Fatima, Portugal in Vatican City for the consecration on October 13. THE CLOCK IS TICKING!!!

    WE HAVE AN ACTION PLAN!
    YOU ARE PART OF IT!

    Listen: we intend to bring all the bishops mentioned above — and most likely more — to Rome, where they will seek an audience with the Pope! This requires planning — and money!

    These bishops are from around the world. Our representatives must travel to them and coordinate the logistics and details of the joint delegation to Rome. We must have everything in place!

    Our Lady’s Apostolate will offer to pay for all travel expenses, all accommodations and meals, for the bishops as well as for any staff members they require. We must also have our own people on the ground, in Rome, to handle all contingencies.

    The stakes are high! World peace, or the annihilation of nations! We cannot afford the slightest slip-up!

    We are confident Pope Francis can be reached. He is the most accessible Pope in modern times! For one thing, he lives in the guest house where visiting bishops stay in Rome! Our bishops may be staying under the same roof as the Pope! There is little formality about the Holy Father. This is all to Our Lady’s advantage for the success of this mission.

    And there is a development of immense importance that favors the success of our mission: SECRETARY OF STATE CARDINAL BERTONE, ARCH-ENEMY OF FATIMA AND THIS APOSTOLATE, IS ON HIS WAY OUT!

    For years, Bertone tried to bury the Fatima Message — and failed! His last day in office will be Oct. 15, but his influence is finished as of now! Bertone won’t be able to sabotage our mission! We have a clear field to reach the Pope!

    Andwe know the Pope loves Our Lady! In a way, we made sure of it! When we went to Rome before the papal conclave, we lobbied all the Cardinals, stressing how important it was that we have a Marian Pope who would do as Our Lady of Fatima asked!

    The Cardinals elected Pope Francis. The day after his election he made a surprise visit to St. Mary Major, where he knelt before the Icon of Our Lady. We had reason then to believe that our prayers had been answered!

    Within weeks of his election, Pope Francis asked Cardinal Archbishop of Lisbon — twice! — to consecrate his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima!

    This consecration took place on May 13, at the Shrine of Fatima, with all the bishops of Portugal participating! No Pope had ever done this — not in the almost 100 years since the apparitions of Fatima! What could it mean?

    IT COULD ONLY MEAN THAT WE HAVE IN POPE FRANCIS THE HOLY FATHER WE HAVE WAITED AND PRAYED FOR!

    The Holy Father’s devotion to Our Lady swept like a fire of love through the world. Listen —

    - On June 8, the bishops of the Philippines consecrated their nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

    - On June 16, all the Eastern Catholic Patriarchs of the Middle East, along with Lebanon’s bishops consecrated Lebanon and the Middle East to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

    - On August 15, the Cardinal Primate of all Ireland in the name of all the Irish bishops at the National Shrine of Our Lady at Knock consecrated Ireland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

    Then, Pope Francis announced he intends to consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a solemn ceremony in Rome on Oct. 13, 2013 — the 96th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun!

    Perhaps we will see another miracle on that anniversary: the fulfillment, at long last, of Our Lady of Fatima’s request for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart!

    We know that the Pope wants to do all he can to honor Our Lady. We also know that the Pope is not controlled by the old-line Vatican bureaucracy that has been trying to bury Fatima.

    The very fact that the Holy Father had his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima must be seen as a rejection of the party line that has tried to consign the Message of Fatima to the past through a campaign of falsehoods and suppression.

    But why the world? Why not Russia?

    We don’t yet know. Perhaps our delegation of bishops can find out. What we do know is that a consecration has been arranged and this provides us with a golden opportunity!

    It may be that the Holy Father has been persuaded that a consecration of the world may honor Our Lady more. Perhaps he has been told this by those around him who may mean well — or not!

    But Sister Lucy made it abundantly clear, Our Lady never asked for a consecration of the world! The documentary evidence is there! We have included excerpts of key interviews of Sister Lucy in this letter.

    Once you read these statements, you will no longer be able to think that a consecration to the world will satisfy Our Lady’s demands. The Pope must see this information, too. Our bishops will make sure he sees it!

    When the Holy Father realizes that only a consecration of Russia will win for us the graces Our Lady promised, we believe he will take the appropriate action.

    And you can help, both financially and by sending the enclosed petition to the Holy Father. Along with the visitation from our bishops’ delegation, Pope Francis will be told by you, one of the souls whose care he has at heart, what Our Lady wants!

    Please send us a copy of the petition you send to the Holy Father. If you prefer, you can e-mail Pope Francis to request the consecration. We have enclosed his e-mail address. Please copy the email to us atconsecraterussianow@thefatimacenter.com so we can keep track of how many are contacting the Holy Father.

    Once Pope Francis knows the facts, it could be a simple matter to change the consecration of the world to a consecration of Russia! Then, the graces Our Lady has longed to give us will begin to rain down on our spiritually parched and war-torn world!

    Thebishops, we believe, will obey the Holy Father and join him in this consecration, as Our Lady asked. Already, without any prodding, in nation after nation, bishops are consecrating their countries to the Immaculate Heart! This must be a sign!

    And never has the Russian Orthodox Church shown itself more open to the consecration! In fact, Russia has been one of the only nations to stand up against the homosexual agenda and defend the sanctity of marriage, no matter what the cost!

    The entire international community, with all the powerful political and business interests in the West threatening to boycott the Olympics in Russia, have not been able to pressure the Orthodox Church into a moral compromise!

    THE TIME IS SHORT! BUT THE TIME IS RIGHT!
    WE MUST ACT NOW!

    Are you with me? Will you stay the course with Our Lady’s Apostolate for what may be the greatest moment in modern history — the dawn of peace under the mantle of the Immaculate Heart?

    Please, pray for the success of our delegation! Join with us in petitioning the Pope. And do all you can now to support this apostolate.

    Yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

    Father Nicholas Gruner

    P.S. We must act to let the Pope know that his planned Oct. 13 consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary must be a consecration of Russia! We need your alms to pay for our bishops’ delegation to Rome and for organizing that delegation. We also need everyone to send the enclosed petition to the Holy Father (at pcpl@laity.va). This is an all-out, no-holds-barred effort. Please, be with us now as never before! See “What Our Lady Wants Is the Consecration of Russia” for more information.
    P.P.S.  Pray a 9-day novena for Pope Francis in union with all the Catholic bishops of the world to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as requested by Our Lady of Fatima.
