100th Anniversary of the Fatima Delays
by Coralie Graham, Editor

This year's centennial anniversary of the Fatima apparitions is a landmark in the history of the Church — but alas, it does not come as an occasion of rejoicing, and if the delay in the Church's obedience to the Queen of Heaven is continued, the consequences will be too terrible to contemplate.

The Consecration:
Why Russia's Intentions Don't Matter As Much As Our Lady's

by Suzanne Pearson

Some people argue against the Consecration of Russia, as Russia does not appear ready to convert to the Catholic Faith. But this argument places human intention above the power of Providence. We have a promise from Heaven, and it is Heaven's intention that matters.
