More Cardinals Concur Consecration Never Done! 
(See "Special Bulletin From Rome")

Good News!
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
In this introduction to The Fatima Crusader Issue 33, Father Nicholas Gruner reports that, although the Holy Father has not consecrated Russia primarily because he fears the bishops' open rebellion, 400 Bishops and 10% of the Cardinals have expressed their agreement that the Consecration of Russia is not done. They are also willing to do the Consecration with the Pope when the Pope so orders it to be done.

You Have a Right to Know

In this brief note introducing the contents of The Fatima Crusader Issue 33, the editors explain the reason for the disinformation about Father Gruner, and remind us of our rights and duties as faithful members of the Church.

Dear Friend of Our Lady 
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.) 
Father Gruner here outlines some of the great accomplishments of the Apostolate over the previous year and a half, and some of the difficulties encountered in doing so, including the piling up of huge debts and pernicious, but effective attacks from foes of the Apostolate. He appeals for the help and support of his friends at this time.

Like the 3 Shepherds of Fatima …
We Must Love the Pope; We Must Love the Bishops
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
The Holy Father suffers greatly because the Consecration of Russia is not yet done, as he himself acknowledges. Our Lord said, "Pray a great deal for the Holy Father, he will do it but it will be late." This article discusses the punishments that Our Lady of Fatima warned would befall the world if Her requests are not heeded. It also explains how the persecution of the Church is a punishment of the world.

A "Pro-Vatican-Moscow-Agreement" Newspaper Attacks The Fatima Crusader
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
This is the complete text of Father Gruner's formal protest sent to various Directors and Officers of Our Sunday Visitor against the gross and unjust lies about him published by that newspaper.

Did Our Lady Speak to You of the Consecration of the World?
"NO, Never" ... Sister Lucia of Fatima
Taken from the L'Osservatore Romano
This testimony of Father Umberto Pasquale, an Italian parish priest who has visited and written Sister Lucy many times, was published in the Pope's own newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano on May 12, 1982. Included here is a photographic reproduction of Sister Lucy's original handwritten letter and the English translation of this letter. This evidence demonstrates beyond any reasonable doubt that Sister Lucy has affirmed that Our Lady of Fatima never asked for the consecration of the world, but only the Consecration of Russia.

The Third Secret Regards …

by Coralie Graham, Editor
This brief article demonstrates that, through her own testimony to Father Caillon, Maria do Fetal admits to inventing reports on the Consecration of Russia.

The Communist Infiltration of the Roman Catholic Clergy
by J. Vennari
Since the Catholic Church is such an effective opponent of Communism, it is obvious that the annihilation of the opposition would be top priority for the Marxist-Leninists. They want to destroy it, if not by direct destruction, then by infiltration and subversion. This article details the order from the communist leadership to KGB agents to infiltrate the Roman Catholic Church.

The Third Secret:
Our Lady Requested It to be Officially Revealed to the Faithful by 1960
by Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité
This extract about the revelation of the Third Secret is taken from Volume III of The Whole Truth About Fatima by Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité. It explains why the Third Secret was not disclosed to the world in 1960.

The Third Secret of Fatima Revealed ...
"Save Yourselves from this Perverse Generation" (Acts 2:40)

To the extent we are able, we must publicly defend the Faith against those who attack it. In this "Open Letter" (published in the New York Times) we seek to reaffirm all our cherished traditions and values inspired by the Gospel, and proclaim our unfailing allegiance to Our Lord Jesus Christ and therefore to the Catholic Faith as it has been handed down to us from the Apostles.

Mesmerized by the Bear:
The Great Soviet Deception (Part II)
by Donald S. McAlvany
America and the West are being massively deceived in the current atmosphere of peace, disarmament and partnership between East and West. We face incredible danger if current trends are not reversed. Part II of this two-part article provides further insight into the deception that Communist Russia is perpetrating by glasnost and perestroika.

Rendering Unto Glasnost the Things that are Mary's
by J. Vennari
Until the Consecration of Russia takes place, there will be no conversion of Russia, for its conversion belongs to the Blessed Virgin Mary alone. Accepting the latest Communist deception as an apparent conversion is a suicidal illusion.

by Father F.X. Schouppe, S.J.
The dogma of hell is the most terrible truth of our faith. Nothing is more clearly revealed than the dogma of hell, and Jesus Christ proclaims it as many as fifteen times in the Gospel. This article is an extract from the book Hell, and it proves that hell does exist.

Frère Michel Proves "Sister Lucia's Letter" is a Fake

In this brief analysis of one of the alleged 1989 letters from Sister Lucy - which contradict what she has consistently said and written for 60 years on the Consecration of Russia - Frère Michel proves from the content of this computer-generated letter that it is fake and cannot have been composed by Sister Lucy.
