Father Nicholas Gruner, RIP
April 29: It is my sad duty to announce the sudden death of Father Nicholas Gruner
He died suddenly late today of a heart attack while working at his Fatima Center office.
At the moment, I do not know more than this. Please re-visit our page for updates.
He was truly the world expert on Fatima. He was more knowledgable on this subject, and on the true nature of the Fatima Message than anyone else.
Please remember Father Gruner in your prayers, a good friend and a true Catholic Crusader.

A great Crusader for the Church and the Mother of God at Fatima has met his Judge. May God have mercy upon him and reward him eternally for his faithfulness to the message of Fatima and the requests of the Mother of God, most importantly the Consecration of Russia and the Five First Saturdays.
Could the death of Fr. Gruner symbolize the eclipse of Fatima, for now there is nobody to cry out in the wilderness of the Church for Our Lady to be heeded and obeyed before it is too late?
A comment on Fr. Paul Nicholson’s condemnation of Fr. Gruner:
Fr. Paul Nicholson,
Is this the way you are to treat the dead? What does “Now he knows the truth” mean? Are you implying that this faithful Priest of Our Lord went to hell? And, praytell, what is his crime that warrants attack from so many sides of the Church? Crying out that the Mother of God has not been obeyed? You cry out for obedience, but you don’t explain why Our Lady of Fatima has not been obeyed by the Pope and the Bishops. Since obedience is as important as you say, how come it has been almost a century and Our Lady of Fatima is ignored and her requests brushed under the rug, only left in the light by one brave Priest, Fr. Nicholas Gruner, who saw it as his rightful duty to continue bringing to the attention of the Church, the answer to the problems of not only the world, but the Church?
“Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God, Which he had promised before, by his prophets, in the holy scriptures, Concerning his Son, who was made to him of the seed of David, according to the flesh, Who was predestinated the Son of God in power, according to the spirit of sanctification, by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead; By whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith, in all nations, for his name;” ~Roman 1: 1-6
Do you not realize that if it was not for Fr. Gruner the message of Fatima would have long been forgotten in the heap of Modernism? Do you not believe that the Mother of God at Fatima asked for the Consecration of Russia for world peace? Why do you wish to destroy the messenger, if not to destroy the message? Fr. Nicholas Gruner was an Apostle of the Latter Days, a valiant defender of Our Lady. May she intercede for him. For the love of God, Fr. Nicholson, please reflect upon the situation of the Church and pray that Our Lady of Fatima be soon obeyed and the fruits of the Apostolate of Fr. Nicholas Gruner brought forth by the eventual Consecration of Russia and triumph of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart.
A final word on Our Lady of Fatima: She is the Woman of the Apocalypse, the Woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Eternal rest grant unto Fr. Nicholas Gruner, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.
“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”
~Our Lady of Fatima
