See " The Requests of Our Lady of Fatima Are Being Deliberately Hidden" . From every side we are swamped by error and propaganda (Glasnost and Perestroika) but we respond in this issue, see "The Plot (To Silence Our Lady) Thickens", "Jumping The Gun", "The Great Soviet Deception", "Modern Ecumenism Is a Fraud".
Like the Blessed Virgin at the Incarnation, the Pope and Bishops are challenged to believe that despite the obstacles, their obedience to God's Command to Consecrate Russia will bring about His Reign through the Triumph of His Mother's Immaculate Heart.

Dear Friend of Our Lady
by Father Nicholas Gruner, S.T.L., S.T.D. (Cand.)
Father Gruner went to Rome to have a private audience with the Holy Father, in order to make known to him some of the dishonest and shameful means his enemies have used to harass him and the Fatima Apostolate.

Modern Ecumenism is a Fraud

Sister Lucia Confirms Consecration of Russia Not Done!
Write to the Pope, Cardinal Ratzinger,
