Marian Movement of Priests

Marian Movement of Priests

The Marian Movement of Priests was formed to bring the message of Fatima to its fulfillment. By means of a spiritual renewal of the Church and all humanity and the formation of a remnant faithful to Mary, the movement strives to conquer Satan, to spread the truth and to bring us into a greater unity with the Pope and the Church united to him.
