In 2017, three important anniversaries occur: Luther’s revolt (the nailing of the 95 theses, October 31, 1517), the birth of modern masonry (foundation of the Grand Lodge of London, June 24, 1717) and the Bolshevik Revolution (October 25, 1917 OS). These anniversaries are connected and constitute the cultural and moral background of the crisis of our time. But 2017 is also the centennial of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima to the three little shepherd children (May 13 – October 13, 1917). The message of Fatima best explains the crisis we confront  and reveals a perspective of extraordinary hope for our future.

Roberto de Mattei is an Italian historian, president of the Lepanto Foundation, director of the Radici Cristiane [Christian Roots] magazine, and editor-in-chief of the Corrispondenza Romana news agency. He has taught at the University of Rome-La Sapienza, the University of Cassino, and the European University of Rome. From 2003 to 2011, he was vice-president of the National Research Council of Italy, and, from 2002 to 2006, he was counselor for international affairs of the Italian government. He is the author of more than twenty books translated into several languages. He is a Knight Commander of the Vatican Order of Saint Gregory the Great, in recognition of his service to the Church and Christian Civilization.
