February 9, 1972 - Under Obedience to Superior General

Actually, what Father Aloysius did is quite remarkable. Under obedience to his General Superior in Rome he founded a new religious order in Fatima, Portugal. The date of the General's letter is February 9, 1972. The order consisted of two branches - the religious and the laity. In 1976 Father went with pilgrims to the Holy Land. He had an audience with the Latin Patriarch, and dedicated his work at the place known as the Holy Sepulcher. In 1978 a formal agreement was reached with the…

Great Monarch and Father Aloysius - Parallels

2. The Fleur-de-Lis as a…

Year 1971 — “The Present Crisis in the Church” by Father Aloysius Ellacuria, CMF

The following are excerpts taken from a survey in which Father Aloysius shares his insight into the “present crisis in the Church”. He wrote these words in the fall of 1971. These words are not only shocking but prophetic.



“The present crisis in the Church is a result of a lack of proper spiritual formation in the seminaries, and because of that, priests today are not as they should be. This crisis is going to become much worse because, in the present-day the seminiaries, instead… Continue

What A Wonderful Afternoon for "The Friends of Father Aloysius"

Then we reviewed the message of the Angel of Portugal who appeared to the three shepherd children, Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta in 1916 - one year before the apparitions of Our Lady in 1917. Finally, the participants called… Continue

St. Anthony Mary Claret's Statue Location Is Privileged


At the Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima, the statue of Saint Anthony Mary Claret is located on the right hand side of the main altar dedicated to Our Blessed Mother.
