CORRECTION: RE. FATHER NICHOLAS GRUNER

      VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- A story on the work of Father Nicholas Gruner, which appeared in Catholic World News recently, contained several errors.

      Father Gruner was ordained to the priesthood-- not suspended from priestly duties-- in 1976. He was threatened with suspension by the Diocese of Avellino in May 1995, when he failed to obey an order to return to that diocese after an approved absence of many years. Father Gruner has appealed that suspension, and under canon law the suspension does not officially take effect while the appeal is in process.

      Supporters of Father Gruner charge that the order to return to Avellino was the result of intense lobbying by "Vatican bureaucrats" who have consistently opposed his Fatima crusades. In 1992 the Vatican Congregation for the Clergy took the unusual step of announcing that these Fatima conferences were undertaken without ecclesial approval.
