Our Lady of Fatima
Is the Antichrist Coming Next?
by Fr. Nicholas Gruner
TAKEN FROM THE AUTUMN 2010 ISSUE OF THE FATIMA CRUSADER
Sister Lucy of Fatima told us that the devil is in the
mood for a final battle. We can see evidence of Satan operating here
and there on television, in Hollywood, in the corruption of morals and
standards of dress, in dishonest business practices, in over-reaching
government, and in numerous other ways, too many to list here.
But now we have evidence that the devil is showing
himself more openly. His trick, for the longest time, was to pretend
that he doesn't exist and that we can just have a secular humanist
society, a society that doesn't acknowledge God or any Supreme Being or
any spiritual power.
Dominating the city is a huge pyramid, a long-recognized symbol of Freemasonry. The pyramid houses a conference center as well as the offices of the institute, which is dedicated, as the London Mail reported, to "building bridges of friendship, understanding and mutual cooperation between the great religions of the world," which is another long- established Masonic theme.
The new Presidential Palace is flanked by two gigantic pillars, which appear to be thematically connected to the two pillars Boaz and Jachin found in Masonic symbolism. ... With such a diabolic collection of architecture hailed as a model "city of the future", can the Antichrist be so far behind?
The coming of the Antichrist is predicted in Sacred Scripture as well as in the Third Secret of Fatima. And the Message of Fatima tells us that the only way to prevent the Antichrist from ruling over all of us in a global slave labor camp---here in North America as well as in the rest of the world---is by obeying and getting others to obey the requests of Our Lady of Fatima.
As Sister Lucy tells us, the devil is in the mood for a final battle and we must choose sides. We are either for the devil or for Jesus and Mary. There is no middle ground. There is no fence to sit on. We have to choose one side or the other.
We do know that in the end the Blessed Virgin Mary will win. She will triumph over the devil; but the question for us is, will we be on Her side or will we end up serving the devil in this life and in Hell?
There is still time to prevent disaster from taking place---disaster and chastisement such as the world has never seen before---even worse than the Flood.
The Benefits We Will Receive From the Consecration of Russia
As you will see ... we are focusing on the Consecration that the Blessed Virgin Mary specifically asked for, to which obedience by the Pope and the bishops is guaranteed peace and prosperity for the whole world. And to its disobedience, is guaranteed enslavement, death, destruction and annihilation of "various nations".
For the longest time, I have wondered why the Pope and the bishops just don't do it---that is, do it properly as Our Lady requested. When I asked that question of Father Kramer, he said: "The fact that they don't do it is proof that the devil exists," that "there is the mystery of iniquity at work."
How can we draw such a conclusion? It is very simple. There is every benefit---natural and supernatural---we can obtain by this act of obedience by the Pope and the bishops:
Instead of spending over one hundred billion dollars a year worldwide on arms; on military might; on soldiers, navy and air force and all the wasted fuel and resources and material going into the industrial military complex (as Eisenhower called it); instead of the trillion dollars a year going to military spending, they would be used to feed and clothe and educate the peoples of the world so that there would be no more extreme poverty.
The health care for problems that can only be solved with huge sums of money would then be available to all the needy.
A period of peace given to all of mankind. People would not be fighting and nations would not be fighting. There would not be riots or food riots.
All these benefits that mankind yearns for, longs for; anyone of good will towards his fellow man would want them all to live in peace and prosperity. All this could be had by a simple act of obedience by the Pope and the Catholic bishops which would take approximately ten minutes of each one's time.
In other words, 5000 men would say a common prayer, solemnly and publicly, either together or in their own Cathedrals, at the same time, and on the same day. The prayer would last anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes and that is all that would be required to achieve this goal of world peace, harmony, prosperity and goodwill. It would make everyone's eternal salvation easier to achieve and it would give everyone the benefits of natural prosperity in this life.
It would not be paradise on earth such as Adam and Eve had before they sinned, but it would be hundreds, if not thousands, of times better than what this world is groaning under today. The Message of Fatima also says: If you don't obey, if My requests are NOT granted, that the whole world---every country in the world, with no exception---would be enslaved; not in a benign slavery, but under the rule of the Antichrist.
Big Brother of the New World Order Would Control
Every Aspect of Your Life and Your Loved Ones
It would be a cruel slavery, one to drive many, if not all, to despair, to give up all hope of life and freedom and goodness towards their oppressors and even towards their neighbors. Everyone could be a potential spy against everyone else---their friends, their neighbors, their children, their parents. Big Brother of the New World Order (NWO) would dictate every aspect of your life---if you live, where you live, if you eat, what you eat, if you work, where you work, if you travel, how far and where you can travel to, if you can associate with anyone else and who you can or cannot meet or speak to, and that only touches the tip of the iceberg.
Big Brother would also decide if you lived or died, how you died and when you died. It would be oppressive and cruel, the NWO would be constructed to last forever.
Big Brother would have you believe that the only way for you to get out of the worst of this hell hole would be to sell your soul to the devil, and even then you would not escape entirely.
Why Do They Not Obey?
Faced with such a choice, why is it that the Pope and the Popes before him, and the bishops and, for that matter, the priests have not done their part to bring this peace and prosperity promised by Our Lady? The priests could, in a major way, promote this by either preaching or teaching it. But they have not put their shoulders to the wheel, have not put their noses to the grindstone, have not shouted this from the rooftops in season and out of season.
In short, they (priests, prelates and Pontiff) have not done all that they could by leading a crusade of prayer, of sacrifice, of conversion for the faithful who look to them for leadership.
Instead, much of the clergy have given up or told themselves that they have to wait until they become the Pope or a Cardinal or a bishop and have delayed and temporized and not stood up for the truth.
Neither have they spoken out and tried to encourage their brothers in the episcopate or in the College of Cardinals, or encouraged their fellow priests to do their little bit of spreading the word of making the Fatima Message known, of praying themselves and getting others to pray the Rosary.
From amongst many of the clergy is heard the excuse: "I can do nothing. It is not my job. Go and talk to this person or that person. Don't expect me to do anything."
What is the Real Obstacle?
What is it that prevents this movement of prayer, of knowledge of Fatima, of conversion from welling up from the grassroots, from coming down from the top? What is it that prevents them from simply obeying the specific command to consecrate Russia in the manner specified?
There are a number of reasons. The first reason is that all of us have been affected by the age we live in. I am talking about those faithful, those fervently faithful Catholics who, themselves, are the best of our time but nevertheless are somewhat touched by the apostasy of the age.
As Sister Lucy said: "The Blessed Virgin Mary is very sad because neither the good nor the bad pay any attention to Her Message."
And so it is also the good that need to convert, that need to listen, that need to obey, that need to embrace the truth of Fatima; and even those who already do that, need to do it better than they are doing up until now, including myself.
Some of the faithful say: "What can I do?"
"I am not a Cardinal, a bishop or a priest. I am not important, I'm so small, I don't count. I don't have any special abilities. I haven't gone to grade school, high school, university. I don't have a post-graduate degree. I am not anything special. I am not a captain of industry or of commerce or in the government or in the bureaucracy of the Church or State. What can I do?"
So they do nothing---even if they are informed!
First of all, we all need to pray more, all of us have to do our own praying. No one can do it for us. It is true that others can pray for you but then you are not contributing to the need for prayer, and as the Angel of Fatima said: "The Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary are attentive to the voice of your supplication."
They want you, you personally. Please do your part. Help us by your prayers.

Perpetual Help ---We place our trust
Continuing Plot to Silence Our Lady
There is, of course, a plot to silence Our Lady and Her
requests. We have exposed this time and time again over the years.
(1) Silencing Our Lady
The first plot to silence Our Lady is, of course, to not
talk about it,
to tell no one about it even in our Catholic schools including
universities; to tell no one from our pulpits; or from our so-called
Catholic newspapers; to basically treat it with the silent treatment.
If no one hears about it, talks about it, learns about it, then no one
will know that the only solution to the problems in the Church and the
world is by obedience to Our Lady of Fatima.
(2) Causing Confusion
The second line of attack against Our Lady of Fatima by
Satan is to
cause confusion and disunity among those who do know the Fatima story
and the Fatima requests. There are several groups of people who, in
good faith or not (only God knows), think or claim that they are
serving the Blessed Virgin Mary of Fatima by claiming that the
Consecration of Russia is done, by claiming that the whole Third Secret
of Fatima has been released.
Clearly, their claims are false and we have answered them
over and over
again. But, for some people, they think that they must promote and
stand by these false claims rather than promote and stand by Our Lady
I have written a short essay on False
Obedience ... It is a very important article for you to read
part of the confusion, part of the disinformation that endangers us
all is the misunderstanding of the difference between true obedience
and false obedience. ...
Manipulates the Vatican
It is important for us to understand how, in fact, Satan
has managed to manipulate the Vatican---the Pope's advisors and
others---into avoiding and even obstructing obedience to Our Lady of
We might ask, why is it important for us to understand this?
Let us take a recent example in the Church. On the 7th
day of the 7th
month of the 7th year of this millennium, Pope Benedict XVI decreed
and declared, by his own hand, that the Latin Mass was not forbidden,
that the Latin traditional Mass had never been forbidden and
that no bishop or Cardinal or religious superior could prevent a
Catholic priest in good standing from offering the Holy Sacrifice of
the Mass in the
Latin Tridentine rite.
That is a matter of public record even though some people
ignore this fact. In the last three years since that decree, most
priests are still not saying the Latin Tridentine Mass---the one they
are bound to offer , the one that has a definition
of Faith which says
that there are no errors in the Liturgy of that Mass. Whereas, in the
new "Mass" there are significant errors and there is no definition that
says there are no errors.
The truth is---in English, Italian, and Spanish, among
vernacular translation of the consecration of the wine makes it
of doubtful validity---in other words, it is doubtful that there really
is the change (the transubstantiation) of the wine into the Blood of
Jesus Christ, as has been demonstrated by Father Paul Kramer in his
book, The Suicide of Altering the
Faith in the Liturgy, available from
the Fatima Center. 
We know that the Third Secret warns against the changes
Liturgy;  yet everyone goes along as if it makes no
everyone goes along even after it has been clarified by the Pope that
the old Mass has not been forbidden and never was forbidden---and, in
fact, could never be forbidden, in the past nor in the future!
Why is it then? Is it because the people have no
people perish," says God, "because no one reflects in their heart."
Sacred Scripture also tells us: "The lips of the priest
are to guard
wisdom." That means the priest must know the truths of the Faith and
must defend the truth and rebuke error. But most priests today are not
doing that. As St. John Eudes tells us: "When God is thoroughly
angry with His people, His worst chastisement He can send is to send
So, in this time of the worst apostasy the Church has
ever seen, which
is just apparently before the coming of the Antichrist, when even the
elect would be deceived if that were possible, Our Lord says we must
inform ourselves. We must listen to the prophetic Message of Fatima
because it is God's mercy for our time---to send His Mother to explain
to us what must be done in order to save our souls at this time.
The full truth of the Message of Fatima is being blocked
Chancery offices, in the so-called Catholic School Boards, in the
so-called Catholic journals and newspapers and magazines, in the
universities and high schools, and in the parishes.
We Must Love the Truth Ourselves
We are told in Sacred Scripture, "The truth will make ye
free." Obviously, lies and falsehoods enslave you. We are also told by
God in Sacred Scripture (2 Thess. Ch. 2) that the Antichrist comes
because of one fundamentally wrong attitude of the people which leads
to thousands of other sins. That fundamental crime is that they do not
love the truth. We must love the truth. We love the truth by seeking to
know the truth, by living by the truth that we have, by defending the
truth when we can, by passing it on to others who are seeking the
We must realize that in our time, in places and
institutions around us,
the truth is not always loved. Seemingly good people profess to be
promoting the truth when, in fact, they knowingly spread lies,
falsehoods and half-truths. Then there are truly good people who really
well but are deceived, but we should not be taken in when they become
conduits of falsehood.
Can We Do?
What everyone can do is to pray. Jesus tells us it is
never too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary. In other words, even
though today, it is very late (more than 80 years since the
Consecration of Russia was requested and still not obeyed), we are not
abandoned. We are not powerless. We can do what Jesus said: "Pray, pray
a great deal for the Holy Father." We can take to heart the words of
Our Lady at Fatima when She said: "Only the Lady of the Rosary can help
In other words, we must pray the Rosary---frequently and
Sister Lucy tells us that there is no problem in the world, either
natural or supernatural, whether local or international, in our Church,
in our community, in the world, that cannot be solved by the Holy
Join us in our 12 Million More Rosaries Crusade.
We have seen the effect of the more than 19 million
Rosaries prayed for
the Holy Father. He has already reversed himself from what he said in
And so, in summary, what can we do?
Start today if you have not already. There is always one
we can do, something we can do better for love of the truth and Our
Lady. We can all take a very active part in bringing about the
triumph of Our Lady of Fatima---no matter who we are. God bless you and
Our Lady keep you.
