Hello Everyone! I hope all is going well for you as we prepare to enter into the holy season of Lent (Wednesday, March 1st)!
The Fátima book is coming along well. My publisher, En Route Books and Media, is developing a page for the book. Endorsements have started coming in and a few more are expected. To date, Msgr. Charles Mangan and Dr. Joseph Shaw have written in favor of the book. In the meantime, we await the results of the canonical review.
In addition, a summary of the book has been provided. It was written by me for another purpose earlier this week but it turned out that En Route also liked it as a description.
Also featured is an earlier draft of the proposed book cover. Changes are being made, but it does give a general idea of where we hope to go. I hope to be able to use the image of the third part of the secret from the movie The 13th Day, but we may change it. By far, their image is the best one that I have seen (in my humble opinion). If you would, in your charity, please pray for the Will of God to be done in this matter.
Our fundraiser for the translations obtained $605 dollars. Thank you very much to those who generously gave to support this project prayerfully, financially or sharing on social media. While we did not reach our goal of $1,600, the monies obtained go to pay the translators for their work. We appreciate your charity.* I am also happy to relay that we have received the permissions to publish these documents.
Finally, I will make a book-related announcement hopefully in the near future. There is some particularly good news on this front, but not quite ready yet for the public. Once it is, I shall make a new post so please do stay tuned!
* In the fundraiser, the nature of the two documents was not specified. This was a deliberate effort on my part because of their sensitive nature. Once the book is published, I shall explain the matter in more detail.
