Introduction to Fatima, Russia & Pope John Paul II by Fr Aidan Nichols

Review of Fatima, Russia & Pope John Paul II

Fatima, Russia &

Pope John Paul II

by Timothy



"I have come to understand that the only way to save the world from war, to save it from atheism, is the conversion of Russia according to the message of Fatima." Pope John Paul II, from the book.

This book is the first full-length account of how the end of the former Soviet Union is attributable to the hand of God through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The author shows how the events in Eastern Europe are connected to the requests and prophecies Our Lady made at Fatima in 1917, and he describes authentic spiritual signs and testimonies that clearly demonstrate Mary's presence at key turning points in the series of changes that have occurred.

Among the fascinating items included in the book are the reasons for Pope John Paul's decision to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Sister Lucia's statements on the consecrations of 1982 and 1984, Mikhail Gorbachev's article thanking Pope John Paul for the crucial role he played in bringing about the changes in Eastern Europe, the Pope's reply and his appraisal of Mr. Gorbachev, the first Russian Catholic pilgrimage to Fatima, the first Mass from Fatima broadcast throughout Russia, and the remarkable story of the Slovak bishop who said Mass secretly inside the Kremlin.

A new Postscript for this Revised Edition describes Russia since the collapse of Communism, the situation of the Catholic Church inside the former Soviet territories, Pope John Paul's linking of Fatima with the Divine Mercy, and his vision of the future.

Timothy Tindal-Robertson graduated from Trinity College in Dublin, and entered the Catholic Church in 1964. From 1976 to 1995, Timothy and his wife Andrea ran a very successful Catholic publishing apostolate, Augustine Publishing Company, publishing and supplying a wide range of orthodox books upholding the Faith.

Timothy is now concentrating on writing and lecturing on Fatima, and hopes to publish quite soon a study on the significance for the Church of the Beatification of Francisco and Jacinta Marto of Fatima by Pope John Paul II at Fatima on 13 May 2000.

He is also active in the World Apostolate of Fatima (the Blue Army) in the United Kingdom. This book is the result of more than fifteen years' research into the message and meaning of Our Lady's apparitions.
