Fr. Nicholas Gruner, R.I.P.

Source for this post is the blog.

Writes Oswald Calvario:

Just wanted to inform you that Fr. Nicholas Gruner, the “Fatima Priest”, passed away earlier this week.

Fr. Gruner had Dr. Ron Paul as the featured speaker at his Fatima Peace Conference in 2013. Dr. Paul courageously attended, ignoring the Pravda media’s faux smears of “antisemitism” and delivering a rousing speech on how the Prince of Peace’s message is even more pertinent in these faithless times. Here is what a man of brilliance had to say on the event.

Finally, I note separately how the tribute slideshow to Fr. Gruner prominently features Dr. Paul @ point 0:35.

Requiem æternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace.

Thank you for your service


An article on “National Security” from the Center for Public Integrity.

This story is not just about stealing from the government or “deeply corrupted local cultures” in the Middle East. It’s about a very sick American culture. Call it Americanism Unchained. We have to ask, “who is corrupting whom?” May God have mercy on us all.

It’s a long article, but even if you can’t read the whole thing, save the link. It would be especially helpful to show to Catholic parents who might have a daughter who’s thinking of joining the military.


William Pfaff has died.

From his obituary in the New York Times:

—“He rejected the messianic illusions of successive American administrations,” said a longtime friend, John Rielly, president emeritus of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “Although many American pundits consider him a liberal, he was in many respects a classic Christian conservative — one who was skeptical about liberal notions of inevitable progress and always aware of the limitations of human activity.”

—Over time he became more pessimistic, his wife, the former Carolyn Cleary, said. “He lashed out at America because he loved it, but he became sadder and sadder about the nation that was so great, yet was belittling itself. He wanted America to stay home and fix its own country.”

Visit his website and please say a prayer for him:

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let thy perpetual light shine upon him. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
