This website, for Jesus and Mary, is an apostolate of Father James W. Anderson, M.S.A., a priest of the Society of Missionaries of the Holy Apostles, a community of apostolic life founded in 1956 to form men for Second Careers as Roman Catholic priests by Fr. Eusebe H. Menard, O.F.M.   The Society’s principal work in the United States is Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut.  Its priests and brothers are engaged in seminary, parish, pastoral and institutional ministry in Connecticut, Delaware, West Virginia, California and Washington, D.C.

These pages seek the truth about issues that impact salvation, justice and peace for all people, and the good of the Church of Jesus Christ and the world.  Without compromising Catholic doctrine, they respect the faith of other believers and also of those whose faith is that God does not exist. Current areas of concern focus on the final battle between the members of God's Church and his enemy, the fallen angel Lucifer and those who give themselves to him.  The Revelation to John recounts much of this, as do other biblical prophesies, including those of Jesus, himself.  Jesus' Blessed Mother, Mary, has been the most significant prophet sent by God in the last century.  Had the leaders of the Church believed and followed heaven's clear plan for men's  repentance  and conversion to Christ given to three children at Fatima, Portugal in 1917,  World War II and the cold and hot wars following would have been avoided and peace would have been given by Christ, the Prince of Peace.  Even now we could have peace if the Holy Father would consecrate Russia, by herself, alone, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and lead the Church in the First Saturday devotions in reparation for sins committed
 against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  But the leaders of the Church have chosen, instead, to seek peace by human means with disastrous consequences, and more to come, soon!  The paper on Fatima posted on this website: "The Vatican's The Message of Fatima: The Sodano Intervention" proves this by numerous, well-documented facts and argument.  Please read this paper and email your comments to:
