Holy Father, "Do Not Abandon Russia!"
by Father V.

This article is an urgent appeal to the Holy Father from a Russian priest, asking the Pope not to abandon Russia. It was sent to The Fatima Crusader so that it could get to the Holy Father, and our office in Rome was able to accomplish this task.

A Missed Opportunity
by Mark Fellows

In October 2000 the largest concentration of bishops since the Second Vatican Council came to Rome to observe the Great Jubilee. Though the Pope and 1500 bishops prayed the Pope's "Act of Entrustment" of the future to Mary, absent were the words "consecration," "Russia," "Immaculate Heart," "conversion," "Fatima," and "eternal salvation," thus dashing the hopes of thousands around the world that the Pope and his bishops would finally consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Mary Our Queen, Our Mother of Mercy
by St. Alphonsus de Liguori

Our confidence in Mary should be great because She is the Queen of Mercy. There is no doubt that Mary is a Queen. But are we aware that She is a most sweet, a most merciful Queen, dedicated to the well-being of sinners by seeking their conversion?

China: Present Day Threat to World Peace
by Andrew M. Cesanek

Is the world enjoying that period of peace that is to follow the Consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart as Our Lady promised? Or does the threat of world war loom on our horizon, with the real potential of various nations being "annihilated"? This article provides evidence that a growing threat of world war is coming from China, as that country makes extensive military preparations (with Russia's assistance).

Fatima Revered or Reviled?
by John Vennari

This article is an analysis of what was released on June 26, 2000 regarding the Third Secret of Fatima, especially concerning the points that don't seem to make sense. This article also examines the section of the Vatican's June 26 document on the Message of Fatima which states that the Consecration of Russia has been accomplished and that, "... any further discussion or request is without basis."

Father Gruner's Case now in the Hands of the Holy Father
by Christopher A. Ferrara

Readers of The Fatima Crusader know that for the past several years certain members of the Vatican bureaucracy have been illegally attempting to silence this apostolate by forcing Father Nicholas Gruner to live in the diocese of Avellino, Italy. This underhanded strategy included the offer of finding another bishop to incardinate him, while at the same time actively seeking to prevent any other bishop in the world from incardinating him. On November 22, 1999 Father Gruner submitted to Pope John Paul II a formal canonical recourse and complaint against these bureaucrats, along with a cover letter. These two documents, and further letters to the Holy Father, are now presented for your review, as faithful supporters of The Fatima Crusader.

Letter to His Holiness Pope John Paul II

Reprinted here is the letter that Father Gruner sent to Pope John Paul II on November 22, 1999, along with his "Recourse to the Supreme Pontiff and Canonical Complaint". The submission of this letter and the accompanying legal document to the Pope now places the case of the unjust and continuous persecution of Father Nicholas Gruner, by six Vatican bureaucrats, in the hands of the Holy Father.

Recourse to the Supreme Pontiff

This is the "Recourse to the Supreme Pontiff and Canonical Complaint", against six Vatican bureaucrats involved in the unjust and continuous persecution of Father Nicholas Gruner, sent by Father Gruner to the Holy Father.
