Catholic Bishops 2nd World Peace Conference

Pray for the Success of
the Catholic Bishops 2nd Conference
On World Peace
Guadalupe, Mexico - Nov. 8-13, 1994
In response to the request of many bishops who were unable to attend our First Fatima Bishops Conference for Peace, below are plans for our Second Conference.
After personally visiting Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Shrine and meeting with Abbot Schulenburg of the Guadalupe Shrine, and after conferring with the Secretary-General of the Mexican Bishops Conference, Bishop Roman Godinez Flores, and Bishop Braulio Sanchez Fuentes and with Father Jeses Moreno Acosta, the administrator of the Bishops Conference Hall and Retreat Center at Lago de Guadalupe, we shall host the Second Fatima Peace Conference for Bishops in the same Aula Maga where the Mexican Bishops hold their annual meetings.
This beautiful new facility owned by the Mexican Bishops, is ideally suited for our Peace Conference from November 8th to November 13th, 1994. I am sure every bishop will receive many marvelous graces for their dioceses by coming to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Monsignor Schulenburg, the Abbot of the Shrine for 31 years, told me recently that 10 million pilgrims come there every year. It is truly a holy place! Indeed, it is a most appropriate place to hold Our Lady of Fatima’s Second Bishops Conference for Peace.
At the Conference itself we will discuss the link between these two great Marian apparitions.
Conference topics will be centered around these simple, yet prophetic and critically profound facts:
At Fatima in 1917, Our Lady gave three children a message of love, hope and peace for all mankind. However, Our Lady’s promises of the conversion of Russia and a period of peace have not been fulfilled. Yet we know that Our Lady keeps Her promises!
What in our behavior and attitude prevents our receiving this wonderful grace from Heaven? The truth is that many — including some bishops — have never heard the whole message of Our Lady of Fatima. Our Lady’s urgent appeal must be known, understood and obeyed before Her promises can be realized.
Each bishop will gain the special graces of visiting the very blessed Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It was there, in 1531, that the Patron of the Americas and Mother of all appeared to Juan Diego, a poor man. She requested that a church be built where:
I will show My compassion to your people and to all people who sincerely ask My help in their sorrows. Here I will see their tears; I will console them and they will be at ease.
Since Our Lady made that promise, many, many miracles have taken place at Her Shrine. Where better can we go to ask Her help? Surely She will show Her compassion for Her bishops and all of us when we implore Her aid to help us all fulfill Her Fatima requests.
