Dear Friend of Our Lady 
by Father Nicholas Gruner

Letter of Padre Francesco Veras Pacheco
Here is the smoking gun to The Fatima Crusader's claim that Carlos Evaristo's booklet on the purported meeting with Sister Lucy on October 11, 1992 was a fraud: Father Pacheco, the official interpreter for the alleged interview, and the only one present who could understand Sister Lucy's Portuguese besides Evaristo, exposes that Evaristo's booklet contained "lies and half-truths and is not to be believed." This is Father Pacheco's actual letter.
