The web site was updated a little bit today. I reformatted some text, updated my profile picture and combined two pages (Books & Writings).
Also, I have seen the draft of the Fátima book cover. It looks very nice!
Every so often I come across some particularly striking musical pieces on the Internet. Today I would like to share five in particular:
This work has been comprehensive, requiring serious research in several foreign languages. An important part of that research is in jeopardy and your help is necessary to ensure that research can be in the book.
There were a couple of extremely rare texts that have never been published in English translation. One of those texts is now available in English, but owing to the sheer length of the other, it will not be translated due to the financial cost.
I am publicly appealing to all of Our Lady’s friends, this opportunity cannot be passed up. The text is too important to be left out of the manuscript. The publisher needs to raise about $1,100 for this document to be translated and placed in the manuscript. Another $500 is helpful to reimburse the cost for the other document’s translation.
Would you consider partnering with me and En Route Books and Media? If so, please contact me or the publisher, Dr. Sebastian Mahfood, OP and visit our GoFundMe page. If you require more information, please contact me.
Thank you for considering this appeal. May Our Lord and Our Lady bless and keep you.
Sincerely in Jesus & Mary,

One of the best aspects of researching and writing my upcoming book On the Third Part of the Secret of Fátima was the restricted nature of the work. As my focus was strictly upon the third part of the secret, I left out questions over the 1984 consecration made by Pope St. John Paul II.
While I make no definitive statement on the matter of the consecration here or in my book, I did come across an interesting video about the consecration. The video shows Sr. Lúcia talking with a Cardinal who I believe to be Ricardo Cardinal Vidal, the retired Cardinal-Archbishop of Cebu, Philippines. Between them is Carlos Evaristo, who, given his position between them, appears to be serving as translator for the Cardinal.
Hello Everyone! As we are preparing to enter into the year of grace, 2017, I wanted to bring to mind a point from my blog post Pope Leo, Jesus and Satan: A Question.
In that post, I discussed how people are “re-drawing the lines” about Pope Leo’s vision. At first, people thought the vision concerned just the twentieth century. When evils prevalent in that century carried over into the twenty-first, people began re-drawing the lines to connect Leo’s vision with Fátima. Many people are becoming of the opinion that the (alleged) “extended power” given to the devil will be broken in 2017–the centenary of Fátima.
