Gruner’s taxi driver went to pick him up but he was not ready and they left late. They arrived at the Convent a half hour before Lucia’s meeting with Cory Aquino but even then Gruner refused to go in and said he was not ready yet. By the time Gruner was ready to enter the Convent Lucia was already in meeting with the President. Then Gruner claimed they would not let him in and made a fuss outside the Convent.

We do not have peace yet but Our Lady will keep Her promise. For all that has happed right after the Consecration, read Fatima Reconsidered
For those who claim Lucia cannot see anyone, I can assure you that is not true. Her relatives and any bishop can see her without an appointment. It is a cloistered convent so anyone else needs an appointment and a reason.

The story of
As for the sensationalism of some, Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said:
the last few months and especially following the sad event of the terrorist
attack of September 11, articles have appeared in various newspapers regarding
presumed new revelations by Sister Lucy, announcements of warning letters to
the Pope and apocalyptic re-interpretations of the message of
"Moreover, emphasis has been given to the suspicion that the Holy See has not published the integral text of the third part of the 'secret,' and some 'Fatima' movements have repeated the accusation that the Holy Father has not yet consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
this reason, in order to obtain clarification and information directly from the
surviving visionary, it was considered necessary to organize a meeting with
Sister Lucy. This took place in the presence of the prioress of the Carmelite
convent of St. Teresa and of Fr. Luis Kondor S.V.D., vice-postulator of the
causes of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta; and with the permission of Cardinal
Joseph Ratzinger, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and
of the bishops of Leiria-Fatima and
"The meeting, which lasted more than two hours, took place on the afternoon of Saturday, November 17. Sister Lucy, who will be 95 on March 22 next year, was in good health, lucid and vivacious. She first of all professed her love for and devotion to the Holy Father. She prays much for him and for the Church as a whole."

Lucy was asked: "What do you say to the persistent affirmations of Fr. Gruner who is gathering signatures in order that the Pope
may finally consecrate
"The Carmelite Community has rejected the forms for gathering the signatures. I have already said that the consecration that Our Lady desired was accomplished in 1984 and was accepted in heaven."
"Is it true," the communique concludes, "that Sister Lucy is extremely worried by recent events and does not sleep but prays night and day?".
Sister Lucy replied: "It is not true. How could I pray during the day if I did not rest at night? How many things are attributed to me! How many things I am supposed to have done! Let them read my book, there are the advice and appeals that correspond to Our Lady's wishes. Prayer and penitence, accompanied by an immense faith in God, will save the world."

Then Mary said,
"See, My daughter, My Heart surrounded by thorns which ungrateful men pierce at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You, at least, try to console Me and say to all those who, for five months, on the first Saturday, confess, receive Holy Communion, recite the Rosary, and keep Me company during fifteen minutes while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to Me. I promise to assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for the salvation of their souls."

"Have you spread devotion to the five 1st Saturdays? It is true, my daughter, that many souls begin the First Saturdays, but few finish them, and those who do complete them do so in order to receive the graces that are promised thereby.

"The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father in union with all the Bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, promising to same it by this means.

Keep me company in the Blessed Sacrament. I remain in the tabernacle night and day, waiting to give my love and grace to all who would visit me. But so few come. I am so abandoned, so lonely, so offended. Many do not believe in my existence; they do not believe that I live in the tabernacle. They curse me. Others believe, but do not love me and do not visit me; they live as if I were not there You have chosen to love me in the tabernacles where you can contemplate me, not with the eyes of the body, but those of the soul. I am truly present there as in Heaven, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

"And even as Our predecessor of immortal memory, Leo XIII, at the dawn of the 20th century saw fit to consecrate the whole human race to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, so we have likewise in the guise of representative of the whole human family, which He redeemed, the desire to dedicate it in turn to the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary. It is our wish, consequently, that whenever the opportunity suggests itself, this consecration be made in the various dioceses as well as in each of the parishes and families. And we are confident that abundant blessings and favors from Heaven will surge forth from this private and public consecration."

I lived seven years in Fatima, the greatest miracle since the Resurrection and the miracle that saved, changed and will continue to change the world, wondering why everyone does not come here each and every year to at least say "thanks" to Our Lady of saving the world from communism, atom catastrophe, and who will bring us to a period of peace. Such ingratitude! Maybe the same people have not made the First Saturdays or have made them only once, just for the promises in them and not for sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
