- WHY FATIMA
- FATIMA CENTER
- PRAYER & DEVOTION
|The Fatima Message is a restatement of the dogma of the Blessed Trinity. The Angel at Fatima taught the children to offer prayers of reparation to the "Father, Son and Holy Ghost".

An Explanation of the Current-Day Crisis:
by Father Nicholas Gruner
Most people have experienced disorientation but are they aware of “diabolical disorientation”? Sister Lucy coined this term in her writings between 1969 and 1971 and it may even be part of what is in the Third Secret. In this article Father Gruner warns of the devil’s attempts to make people think that a lie is the truth. The first line of defense is prayer, especially the Rosary, as both Sister Lucy and Our Lady of Fatima stressed so often.
Confession of a Eucharistic Minister

The Miracle of the Spiral Staircase
by Carl R. Albach

A New Booklet, Allegedly by Sister Lucy,
Raises Serious Questions
by John Vennari
In this article Mr. Vennari raises serious questions about the authenticity of “The Message of Fatima”, a small booklet allegedly of unpublished writings by Sister Lucy. This booklet muddies the waters between the religion of the Israelites of the Old Testament and the present-day Jewish religion which is based on the Talmud. It also claims that Sister Lucy said the March 25, 1984 consecration of the world fulfilled the conditions for Our Lady’s request of the Consecration of Russia. Once again we are supposed to believe that the war against terrorism is really a period of peace.

EWTN: No Longer a Channel of Grace
A Book Review of EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong by Edwin Faust
This book review of EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong was written by someone who discovered EWTN by accident. His first observation was that it lacked the sensus catholicus. And then things got worse. A Catholic television network that praises the introduction of pagan rites into papal Masses should be held accountable, and, in the opinion of Mr. Faust, Chris Ferrera (author of this book) presents his case against the current direction of EWTN very well and with provable fact.
