The Marian Movement of Priests

Father Stefano Gobbi was born on March 22, 1930, in Dongo, Italy, a village near Como, the lake region north of Milano. He is a member of Company of Saint Paul, the first Pontifical Secular Institute founded in 1920 by the then Archbishop of Milano, Cardinal Ferrari, recently beatified by Pope John Paul II.
Before his ordination to the priesthood in 1964, he managed an insurance agency. He holds a doctorate in sacred theology from the Pontifical University of the Lateran in Roma.

It was on May 8, 1972 while praying at the Chapel of the Apparitions at Fatima that the Mother of God impressed upon Father Gobbi her desire that he start the Marian Movement of Priests. Reassured by an unmistakable sign that it was God's will, and with the approval of his spiritual director, he and two other priests launched the Movement on October 13, 1972.
It was exactly 55 years since the stupendous miracle of the sun at Fatima had underlined the importance and urgency of the message Our Lady has been commissioned to bring to earth.

From a very humble beginning, the Movement has spread throughout the entire world.
Father Gobbi has been receiving "interior locutions" messages from Our Blessed Mother, since 1973. It is the instrument chosen by Our Lady to carry her voice to the hearts and souls of her beloved children, a guide for helping them to live the consecration to her Immaculate Heart. Her messages reveal her maternal plan to lead all souls back to Jesus.
The messages have been published in diary format under the name "To the Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons".
The messages contained in this book must be understood not as words spoken directly by Our Lady, but received, in the form of interior locutions, by Don Stefano Gobbi. Their publication is in conformity with the directives published by Pope Paul VI on the 14th of October, 1966.
