December 10, 2018 - Feast of Our Lady of Loreto

Dear friends,

Many of you have known the Lepanto Foundation for a long time. Others have come to know the foundation, which is registered as a 501-C3 non-profit foundation in Washington, DC, more recently, and some of you are only just encountering our work for the first time. Some of you know me personally, while others know me through my articles translated into English by Rorate Coeli and other blogs, or through attending the conferences which we have held in the United States in recent years.

Today I would like to ask you to become a part of our mission, which is as follows:

The Lepanto Foundation is above all a work of cultural formation in defense of the principles and institutions of Christian civilization:

  • Beginning in 1989, we were among the first to denounce the socialist project of the European Union, which then took shape in the Maastricht Treaty. On our website you can find the text of the Letter to the Ministers of Europe which we personally delivered to Strasbourg in May 1992.
  • In 1993 we brought to light the existence of a migratory invasion which had as its goal the Islamization of Europe.
  • In 1995, we were among the first to denounce the project of the legalization of homosexuality then being encouraged by the European Parliament, establishing throughout Italy the Committees for the Defense of the Family and Traditional Order, which gathered 300,000 signatures at a time when the Internet did not yet exist.
  • After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, we unmasked the metamorphosis of the New Left after and we fought against its efforts to take power in Italy and Europe.
  • We have promoted conferences, meetings, and seminars on the most burning topics of current affairs, from evolutionism to brain death.

Meanwhile, the crisis within the Church has manifested itself in an ever-more virulent manner:

  • In 2010 we published my History of the Second Vatican Council, which had a great impact in Italy and was translated into many other languages. In this work I sought to demonstrate how the roots of the current religious crisis actually extend a long way, back to the times of the Modernist Crisis, condemned by Saint Pius X.
  • This past year we organized an important international gathering in Rome to discuss this same topic: Modernism, Its Roots and Its Consequences.
  • In addition to the monthly conferences which are held at our offices at Piazza di Santa Balbina in Rome, for the past five summers the Lepanto Foundation has presented a "Summer University" first at Norcia and then at Subiaco, centers of Benedictine monasticism, which has seen hundreds of young people and others participate.

Our voice speaks in the Lepanto newsletter, in the monthly journal Radici Cristiane, and in the weekly online news service Corrispondenza Romana which in 2018 was united to RadioRomaLibera, the first podcast in Italy, with which we collaborate intensely, just as we cooperate with all of our strength to promote the success of the annual March for Life in Rome.

We want to expand our work in the United States
, and in order to do this we need your help. Our first goal is to promote a series of conferences in 2019. We also want to make our various publications known to our English-speaking readers.

As our work is growing, we require the support of an ever-greater number of friends who want to join us in our battle. In order to do this, utilizing all of the tools which technology places a tour disposal, we wish to present ourselves to you through the web-platform of Patreon. This platform will permit us to create, consolidate, and expand a community of Followers of the Lepanto Foundation.

The first support I ask of you is that of prayer, solidarity, and friendship, which are essential in order to dispel the sense of isolation with which our adversaries would like to surround us. But in order to sustain and develop our work we need also financial support, which each of you can provide according to your means, making a free offering through the platform Patreon. I appeal therefore to all the friends and admirers of the Lepanto Foundation, all of you who believe in our apostolate, which we have undertaken since the 1970’s without any hesitation or desertion of the field of battle.

What we are in need of is a contribution – even if only a small one – which is regular and constant in order to support my work and that of the Lepanto Foundation. When you become one of our supporters, you will become part of a moral and cultural community, of a great spiritual family, you will be informed of all of our activities, and you will receive the articles and audio-video materials which we publish.

Each week, with a video and with an audio, I will offer support to all of our friends and benefactors, and I will respond personally to any of you who write me. Each one of you, by means of your support, can be united to me in this battle, in which my commitment is never to retreat.
I am convinced that in this moment God had “shed his grace” on America, assisting this great continent to understand the profound nature of the present crisis and to respond with strength and courage. For this reason I ask you to unite with us in this battle.

I place this new initiative under the protection of the Holy Angels and of Mary Queen of the Angels, as we celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of Loreto, who by the hands of the Holy Angels brought the Holy House of Nazareth safely to Christian lands.

I thank you and salute each of you with great affection.

Roberto de Mattei, President of the Lepanto Foundation
