A Special Report
The Apostasy Within the Church Accelerates
by Coralie Graham, Editor
This special report illustrates the rapid and accelerating decline of the Catholic Church around the world, evident in statistics on the loss of faith, even in once-Catholic countries, and the betrayal of the work of the missions by powerful and influential Churchmen. This apostasy and decline of the Church, the article concludes, reminds us of the Third Secret of Fatima, and that we must continue to pray for the Consecration of Russia so that this crisis will end.

The Third Secret for our time gives:

Incardination Offered on Condition of Silence
by Father Paul Kramer, B.Ph., S.T.B., M.Div., S.T.L. (Cand.)
In this article, Father Paul Kramer explains the political maneuvers of certain Vatican bureaucrats who are trying to silence Father Gruner and the Message of Our Lady of Fatima, simply because it has become a source of embarrassment and reproach for those ecclesiastics and prelates whose programs and policies are at variance with Our Lady's Message. Father Kramer further explains why, though Father Gruner has been pressured to abandon his apostolate work so that a bishop will incardinate him, he cannot abandon the mission that Our Lady has entrusted to him.
