  • Does anyone know much about this?  Anything Ferrara is involved with makes me wonder.  What about the two EU statesmen?


    PRESS RELEASE

    FATHER NICHOLAS GRUNER and
    CHRISTOPHER A. FERRARA
    INTERVENE AT EUROPEAN UNION PARLIAMENT
    CONCERNING CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA


    Strasbourg, October 24, 2012 — On October 23, 2012 Father Nicholas Gruner of the Fatima Center in Canada and Catholic attorney and author Christopher A. Ferrara of the United States appeared at the headquarters of the EU in Strasbourg, France to speak in support of a motion for a declaration by the EU Parliament calling upon Pope Benedict XVI to carry out the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    The motion is being sponsored by two members of the Parliament of the European Union, the Honorable Mario Borghezio and the Honorable Lorenzo Fontana, who invited Father Gruner and Mr. Ferrara to speak in its support at the time of its official introduction.

    The motion refers to the threat of "great danger at the present time to world peace and the serenity of all European peoples" and notes that "the Blessed Virgin Mary has promised a long period of prosperity and peace, if and only if, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia in a solemn and public manner, as precisely specified by Her in the Message of Fatima."

    The motion provides for a declaration by the EU Parliament formally requesting that "His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI... fulfill the will of the Queen of Heaven" by performing the Consecration in order to address European and world problems.

    Speaking before the international press corps in the press hall of the EU Parliament headquarters in Strasbourg, Father Gruner and Mr. Ferrara made presentations in support of the measure, including a discussion of the content, undeniable authenticity, and absolute urgency of the Fatima Message for the Church and humanity at large. They were introduced by MEPs Borghezio and Fontana, who appeared with them at the press conference.

    "This was a God-given opportunity to advance the cause of Our Lady of Fatima in a forum whose deliberations will have considerable impact at the Vatican. MEPs. Borghezio and Fontana are to be commended for their courageous defense of the Blessed Virgin before a hostile world. I pray the motion passes and the EU Parliament calls upon the Pope to do his duty," said Father Gruner.

    "I believe we succeeded in making a case for the Consecration of Russia that would appeal even to rational non-believers, who have nothing to lose by voting in favor this measure," said Mr. Ferrara.

    The motion has been lodged with the EU Parliament as an official legislative document and will become part of the public record of EU proceedings. It has already attracted the signatures of a growing number of additional sponsors in the Parliament, including members from Italy, Austria and Ireland.

    Press inquiries should be directed to:

    Europe: Monica Tomassini, The Fatima Center, 011 39 06 39 73 5296, Rome

    North America: Joseph Paonessa, The Fatima Center, 905 871-7607, Canada

  • Nice ironic subversion of a masonic entity.

    However, I cannot help but think it is a dangerous game to play. Analogous to Frodo using the ring except for 'good purposes'.

  • What is it exactly about Ferrara that "makes you wonder?"

    Did he do something to you?

    Very unlifting news! This was quite an undertaking. They had to convince Borghezio and Fonatana, and now it is in the public eye. Very good. Fr. Gruner is quite a mover and shaker. Now, we'll see if we are worthy before God. Ten just men would have saved Sodom and Gomorrah.

    He's got my donations coming for this one.

     Father Gruner, if hyou have the idea that sedevacantists are obstructing or delaying the consecration of Russia to Mary’ Immaculate Heart by a Pope, that is nothing but a slanderous misjudgment on your part.  Our Lady could not possibly have asked for Russia’s consecration to e done by a public heretic and mixer of religions, who himself needs conversion to the true Catholic Faith, one who does the scandalous things that you complain about while still calling him “the Pope”.  

    "I receive Thee, redeeming Prince of my soul. Out of love for Thee have I studied, watched through many nights, and exerted myself: Thee did I preach and teach. I have never said aught against Thee. Nor do I persist stubbornly in my views. If I have ever expressed myself erroneously on this Sacrament, I submit to the judgement of the Holy Roman Church, in obedience of which I now part from this world." Saint Thomas Aquinas the greatest Doctor of the Church

    That part, we'll let God sort out.

    Fr. Gruner is just doing his part. It's better than what we're all doing or anyone else is doing in the whole world.

  • Well, I think this is wonderful news, although it would be naive to overly optimistic about its outcome. The last century bears tragic witness to several of the things Our Lady spoke of, so perhaps even secularist minded men will pay attention, but more likely they will dismiss it or at least not take it too seriously. These shameless men actually believe Christianity is an obstacle to peace and a division and are ashamed even of the Christian heritage of Europe and its remarkable contributions to western civilization and did not want to include such official mention in the EU constitution.
    "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic ... This is a statement I would sign in my blood." St. Montfort, Secret of the Rosary. I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.
