Note from Our Founder

Dear Members and Friends:

We are now in the third quarter of 2022, and I am happy to report on some of the new things that are happening already with the Confraternity since the April issue.

First, a new mission to Latin Mass communities and other Catholic groups is underway in the United States. In June, I was invited to speak to a Latin Mass community in Platteville, WI. I barely made it there because of all of the flight cancellations but knew when I pulled up minutes before I was to deliver my speech, that it was Our Lady’s will that I made it there. You can read more ahead in the newsletter, but suffice it to say that this is a model for revitalizing Catholic apostolates and helping people to brace for the coming of the Chastisement. I have found that promoting the Consecration of St. Louis de Montfort is so powerful that I can see next year we will have 10 or more Latin Mass communities making an annual Consecration and giving Our Lady everything.

Second, in the Philippines, the Catechism class for high school youth is becoming a regular program. (I wake up twice a month on Saturday mornings at 2:00 am so that they can have their catechism lesson at 3 PM their time.) We started with around 20 high school students in the village of Sinanglanan, and we are now at 34, gathering people from nearby villages. We are using the famous My Catholic Faith catechism book. Each of the youth gets to use a copy during the class. Besides the catechism class, they also went to a famous pilgrimage site in Cagayan de Oro. It was great to see them show their devotion to Jesus and Mary and dress so well for the occasion.

What is remarkable though is that this youth catechism apostolate is expanding now to the island of Leyte. We will start in a few weeks there with over 50 students and eventually send them copies of My Catholic Faith. They will start the Consecration in September, ending on Oct 13. The takeaway is that we now have another formation center being built there. It takes two to three years to form youth in the True Faith. The payoff is that they become resilient against the protestant sects and other cults and become Traditional Catholics who love the Latin Mass or, if unavailable to them, yearn for a solemn celebration of Holy Mass and no longer want to receive Holy Communion in the hand.

Third, the Board has commissioned us to get His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider a new and improved website for Gloriadei.io and also LiveFatima.io. This will accommodate the 50-plus new videos that were produced from his Q&A Live Broadcasts from 2021. They are short little vignettes answering questions people have about the Faith in this time of crisis. The Team will also make it so that these questions and answers can be easily found in a Google search. Currently, the video section has just a rough blog layout and is not user-friendly at all. You can go and see it. Now more than ever, we need to give as many people access to His Excellency as we go deeper and deeper into the apostasy and the Chastisement. We are excited about when this will become available towards the end of this year.

Finally, we have expanded the Holy Faith Foundation grants to go outside of the US to embrace Catholics in every country in the world, wherever someone is being fired for the Faith and refusing to take an abortion-tainted Covid-19 vaccine. Things have cooled off here in the U.S. with regards to that issue, except for some sectors like healthcare and the armed forces. But there are other places in the world that are still mandating the abortion-tainted vaccine in a draconian way. If you know of someone that was fired for the Faith and needs help please encourage them to apply.

There are many great things on the horizon that I cannot share today, but we can clearly see strongholds being built in the US and the Philippines. It all starts with the Consecration and is followed up with a strong program of catechesis based on the Roman Catechism of the Council of Trent. If you would like this for your community or family, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Our Lady is already beginning Her reign and triumph in these places and wherever good Catholic men and women all over the world give their hearts to Her in Consecration. As the Chastisement gets worse and more of what Our Lady prophesied at Fatima comes to pass, we pave the way with great happiness and joy for Her coming reign which will most likely be here very soon.

In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary,

Christopher Wendt

International Director

Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima

Expansion of the Apostolate in the United States

On June 6th, 2022, Christopher Wendt was invited to speak at the Augustine University Parish, a Latin Mass community in Platteville, Wisconsin. Their mission is focused on giving the students and faculty of UW-Platteville sacraments, community, and programming aimed at supporting and strengthening the students’ faith and relationship with God. They already host a radio show specifically devoted to the readings and the prayers of the Consecration. They will promote and lead the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary four different times a year.

The topic of Christopher’s speech was on the Coming Reign of Mary. His talk relied on the approved Catholic prophecies from over the last thousand years. He explained what the Reign of Mary would look like after the Chastisement but before the Apocalypse based on the books Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement by Yves Dupont and Trial, Tribulation & Triumph: Before, During, and After Antichrist by Desmond A. Birch.

“The purpose of my talk,” explained Christopher, “was intended to help average Catholics brace themselves for the downhill spiral of the Catholic Church during the Chastisement. It was a message of hope, as well, on how the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary can truly help dioceses and families manage what is ahead while staying Catholic. I really wanted to emphasize how awesome the Reign of Mary will be. It will truly be incredible.”

Afterward, the community decided to make the Consecration to Our Lady according to St. Louis de Montfort – over 150 Catholics – on August 15th, 2022. Besides the radio station, they are also thinking of developing an app so that Catholics can get reminders, prayers, etc., daily to help them make the Consecration more easily.

“You inspired us quite a bit. We are currently in the process of planning the recording to have it ready to start July 13 for the Assumption. We’ve ordered 100 books, and our goal is to make sure they are all given away, so that they can make the Consecration with us. Talks are also in place to get all the Marian feast days on our public calendar and to run the Consecration virtually year-round on the air. Lots of hope inspired by your visit and good things to come out of it. Many of my most faithful friends have told me they were inspired with hope after your talk. To the reign of Mary!”

If you would like to lead a group at your church, Latin Mass community, or group to make the Consecration, please let us know (info@livefatima.io).

New Catechism Programs for High School Youth in the Philippines

More good news. We were able to get audio visual (AV) equipment so that Christopher could teach Catechism to the Catholic youth in the Philippines, in particular high school and young adults. It’s truly a blessing and quite amazing how we can use the “Zoom economy” to make it possible for the Confraternity to be able to teach them the Faith from over eight thousand miles away.

In each class there are about thirty or so truly eager students gathered together in St. Catalina’s chapel in Sinanglanan. Each student has their own copy of My Catholic Faith and also the Holy Bible so that they can all follow along well in class.

We are happy to report that the catechism class is expanding now to two more parishes on the island of Leyte. Catholic high schoolers and young adults in those parishes will soon be able to join the class. We are expecting over fifty to join the class at the end of this month! We have also purchased and shipped them some AV equipment so that they will be able to have the Zoom catechism classes.

The local ordinary His Excellency Precioso Cantillas has provided the Confraternity with a mandate from a letter encouraging him to teach the True Faith in the Diocese of Maasin.

They will also make the Consecration on Oct. 13th. And the Confraternity is already helping them to get copies of the Consecration books so that they can start soon, Sept. 10.

The way this works is one of the Confraternity’s volunteers sets up their laptop computer and connects it to a projector. Chris sets up a Zoom call and the class begins. We also have a microphone so that Christopher can hear them well when they ask questions, and there are also speakers so that the students can also hear well. Catechism classes are held twice a month on Saturday afternoons and last about two hours. Snacks and nourishing food are provided to them afterward.

These are wonderful kids who have already made the Consecration and now want to grow deeper in the True Faith of Jesus Christ!

If you would like to help spread the True Faith to the youth in the Philippines and protect them from so many wolves seeking to harm their faith, please consider making a recurring donation by going to.

New Website for His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Since Bishop Schneider, Christopher Wendt, and Dr. Michael Sirilla started going Live (back in 2021) to answer the questions of Catholic laypeople, there has been over 100 videos uploaded to Bishop Schneider’s website, Gloriadei.io.

Gloriadei.io is a hard website to navigate, sometimes confusing, and is need of an update. The critical answers from His Excellency on the key topics of our time in this Chastisement are really hidden and hard to find. It has recently been approved by the Board to start working on it as soon as possible.

The new update will organize all of the Roman Catechism videos and the short 5-minute videos that answer one specific question so that they will be easier to find (As opposed to having to scroll through all the past videos and skipping through hour-long broadcasts, searching for an answer). All past articles written by Bishop Schneider will be added to the website as well. Also, His Excellency’s answers will be optimized in Google so that they will pop right up in a Google search. This will be helpful in order to find the answer without even having to go to the website.

This will make his voice of orthodoxy easily accessible and will help spread his teaching and guidance to confused lay people all over the world. They will get the true Catholic answers to their questions and concerns more easily than before.

If you would like to help with this, you can give here and help His Excellency Bishop Schneider’s answer to be more accessible,

Holy Faith Foundation Update

In the Fall of 2021, the Holy Faith Foundation was founded for the purpose of providing financial support to Catholics in the United States who lost their job for refusing to take the abortion-tainted Covid-19 vaccine.

Now, in the summer of 2022, the Holy Faith Foundation is expanding to those outside of the US who are in need of financial support.

We have been receiving emails from many people outside the US, and particularly Canada, who have lost their jobs and were the sole provider for their families. They have stayed strong in their faith no matter the personal consequences. While the issue has abated somewhat here in the United States, we must keep in mind that there are many Catholics still being fired for their Faith throughout the world:

“I am a single mother of three young children (age 9, 11, and 13). Their father has left the family years ago and is not contributing to the family financially, spiritually, morally or otherwise. I lost my job in the Canadian government in early February 2022 due to my Catholic faith. It was very traumatic because I needed and still need my salary to support and care for my children and myself. This was my sole revenue for caring for my family. I refused to take the Covid-19 vaccine, now knowing that it is tainted with cells of murdered babies and that the Covid-19 pandemic is a full blown attack on the Catholic faith and on all Christian Churches in the world. I do not want to participate in it by taking a Covid-19 vaccine. By the way, it is also becoming proven that those vaccines are harmful to human health. I consider the whole scheme a work of the devil, and I cannot have any participation in it. May God protect us! I tried to find another job, but everywhere I looked, I was required to be fully vaccinated. While I cried to Our Lady, I saw an ad for a part-time job as receptionist at one of Our Lady’s Catholic Parish. I applied and got the job. To me, it is a therapy (from all the hurt that I have endured because of the Canadian government’s policy on mandatory vaccination for its employees) and a joy and privilege to work at our Lady’s Parish, close to the Tabernacle. However, the salary is not enough to cover basic expenses for my family (roof over our head, food, clothing, all other needs). It is well below the poverty line.

I learnt from a friend of mine also a member of the Confraternity that the Confraternity can help financially (temporarily) its members who have refused to get vaccinated and lost their jobs because of their Catholic faith. My heart health has suffered a lot because of the sustained stress of providing alone for my family for several years and more recently because of the extreme stress caused by the government’s policy on mandatory vaccination. I also know that at age … which I am, it is more difficult for me to find a suitable job. Nevertheless, I am now in the process of trying to get another training for employment and creating my own job as a second job, along with my job at Our Lady’s Parish.

I must say that the Canadian government has prohibited employment insurance benefits for those who do not get vaccinated and lose their jobs because of their vaccination status. Because of that, those benefits are not available to me even though I contributed to the EI.

I would be so grateful if you could contact me to let me know if the Confraternity can provide a financial support for my family, temporarily. Thank you for the Confraternity, and may Our Lord Jesus and Our Mother guide us and protect us all the way.”

This is the touching story of a single Mother from Canada who put God above herself. This is a woman who held on tight to the True Faith no matter the personal consequences
