Fr. Gruner's Fatima Crusade QUESTION from Paul Bartelson October 15, 2000 I have been on Fr. Greuner's Mail list for almost a year and receive his magazines and newletters. I have even sent money to his crusade. Recently,his newsletters indicate that he is having problems with the Vatican. And I have concerns about his cause and crusade. Can you tell me more about him? About all I know is what I read in his newletters.
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, O.L.S.M. on Sunday, December 17, 2000 Dear Mr. Bartelson:
My own opinion is to avoid Fr. Gruner and his magazines. I have had all reference to the Fatima Crusader and other materials from Fr. Gruner taken off this website.
The reason is that Fr. Gruner has been, in my opinion, arrogant and divisive over the issue of the Consecration of Russia. Although the Pope and Sr. Lucia say it was accomplished, Fr. Gruner has taken it upon himself to think he knows more than the Pope and Sr. Lucia and refuses to believe that the Consecration has been done.
This kind of arrogance anc devisiveness is not Catholic.
