Issue 24M
 

Only "BY THIS MEANS" Will You Avoid World Enslavement
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
In this article we give the actual words (and an explanation) of Our Lord and Our Lady to Sister Lucy concerning the most urgent request of the consecration of Russia. We must do all we can to see that the Pope and the bishops consecrate Russia in a solemn and public way in the immediate future.

by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
The world stands at a crossroads in 1988, and Father Gruner reminds us that Russia is in a position to and indeed plans to carry out the annihilation of nations, as Our Lady of Fatima warned. Father Gruner defends himself against some of the early propaganda spread against him.

Russia is Not Yet Properly Consecrated
by Robert A.S. Sullivan

Petition to the Pope
Reproduced here is a petition designed and hand-painted by a woman who is working to bring about the Consecration of Russia. A number of hand-painted originals of this petition have been circulated around the world and thousands of signatures have been gathered, which have been sent to Pope John Paul II.

The Pope's Heavy Responsibility
The Pope, if he had more public opinion support, could order all the Catholic bishops to join him on one day to consecrate Russia in a solemn and public way. Asking for the grace for the Pope to do this should be always in our prayers.

Jesus Asks "... What are You Doing to Promote Devotion to My Mother?"

On December 10, 1925, Our Lady and the Child Jesus asked Sister Lucy for the devotion of the Five First Saturdays, in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This article is devoted to the First Saturday devotion.
