Fatima and the Current State of the Church
by Bishop Bernard Fellay

Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, tells us there is much we have yet to learn about Fatima, as many volumes written by devout and learned friends of Sister Lucy remain under lock and key. He reminds us also that Fatima is our only hope at this point in history.

The Fatima Epoch: Has It Finished?
by Stanislav Protasenko

On the contrary, he explains, there has been a resurgence in Russia of enthusiasm for the old Soviet state, and the Russian Orthodox Church is still the servant of its political masters.

Why God Asks For This Act of Consecration of Russia
by Father Nicholas Gruner

When the Pope and bishops consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, She will bring about the conversion of that nation, and thus Our Lady's exalted place in the economy of salvation will at last be properly recognized and honored. At the same time, the Pope's unique role as supreme Head over all the other bishops of the world will be made manifest.

BEWARE: Our Lady of Fatima Has Warned Us, Hell Is Real!!
by Father Isaac Mary Relyea

Father Relyea reminds us that Our Lady of Fatima showed the children-seers a vision of hell, which Sister Lucy faithfully described in vivid detail, in order to fortify us with an antidote to the skepticism of our age. Our actions will have eternal consequences. Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell are not pious fantasies, but REAL!
