"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Some select pictures from Father Gruner's Funeral
Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

John 11:23-26 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

1 Corinthians 15:54-57 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

1 Corinthians 15:20-23 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.

Philippians 1:23-24 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. 

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Romans 14:8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.

Tribute To The Late Fr. Nicholas Gruner 


  1. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may the perpetual light shine upon him.

  2. We love love you, Fr. Gruner. Please pray for us.
    Requiescat In Pace.

  3. So pleased to see many good people defending Fr. Gruner, he was truly a blessing for us all. May he rest in eternal peace and my his prayers be more powerful, more efficacious for us all in these dark miserable days. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be God in all things. Dear Fr. Gruner we will always love you. Pray for us, as we pray for you. Mother, unite all your children, wherever they may be, keep us all in your Immaculate Heart.

  4. God bless the Holy Soul of Father Gruner. You are now with the Blessed Mother and with our Lord. Thank you Father Gruner for dedicating over 37 years of your life trying to see that the Blessed Mother was heard. Thank you for sharing her Fatima Message. Thank you for trying to save us all. For I know that if the Pope were to do the consecration of Russia as the Blessed Mother asked, then we would have world peace. Sadly this was not done and you lived your life asking us all to please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Love you Fr. Gruner. Please pray for us.

  5. Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord, may perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen

  6. Thank you Fr. Gruner for dedicating your life to the priesthood, you were a blessing to all of us. I am sure you Our Lord has rewarded you with eternal happiness in paradise for all that you did to try to get the Pope and Bishops to obey our Blessed Mother. You are sadly missed by all who believed in your mission. Please pray a holy priest will take up his cross to continue the mission to fulfill the request made by Our Lady of Fatima.. We miss you and love you.

  7. God bless, Fr. Gruner. What a wonderful model of faith and devotion he has provided for us to follow.
