Issue 20



He suffers due to the crisis in the Church and the world.
Eternal salvation of countless souls is threatened because serious errors in doctrine and morals are taught in some Catholic Universities, books and parish programs.
The only way out of these problems facing the Pope, the Church and the world is the full proper obedience to Our Lady of Fatima.
The part of the Message that has been reported is too often deliberately distorted (See "The Plot to Silence Our Lady, Part I"). Attempts are made to silence those who tell you the truth (See "The Plot to Silence Our Lady, Part II"). The full Message addressed to all of us has never been officially revealed (See "The Third Secret Revealed ...").

The Great Jubilee of the Immaculate Conception

The Apostle in Love with the Immaculata
St. Maximilian Kolbe (Part VII)
by Father Stefano Manelli, S.T.D.
This segment, Part VII of a brief biography of St. Maximilian, explains the saint's publishing venture, his "Knight of the Immaculata". Saint Maximilian Kolbe, whom Pope John Paul II has declared "the patron of our difficult century", sets an example for us of how to truly love Our Lady.

Sister Lucy Has Been Silenced!
The facts given in this article prove how Sister Lucy has not been allowed to tell the world the full Message of Our Lady of Fatima since her famous interview with Father Fuentes on December 26, 1957. The silencing of Our Lady's message at Fatima begins with the silencing of Sister Lucy because Father Fuentes published a true report from her, for which he was persecuted.
