We have just heard from our good friend, John Vennari of Catholic Family News, that the great Father Nicholas Gruner died suddenly today of apparent heart failure. We  are shocked and saddened beyond words, and I ask the readers of The Remnant to please storm heaven with prayers for the repose of the soul of this great crusader for our Lady.


I've often wondered how many people the world over would still know anything about the messages of Our Lady of Fatima in our day were it not for the tireless work of her most valiant defender, Father Gruner--her loyal priest who kept her message, warning and promises alive for the benefit of millions of souls so desperately in need of Our Lady's intercession.

Father Gruner has worked himself into an early grave in her name, and we will never forget the good and holy Fatima Priest it was our honor to call friend for so many years.


May Our Lady of Fatima intercede now for Father Gruner.  May he rest in peace.
