Will Pope Francis put an end to all of those who reject the consecration made by Blessed John Paul? Things seem to be getting tense once again. The relations between Russia and the USA are a bit strained once again, while China and Russia seem to be on much friendlier terms. Is now the time to name names an state Russia clearly in this consecration. Heck, if I were Pope, I would name Russia, and China, and Iran, and Syria, and Egypt and a whole list of other troubling nations.
If Our Lady desires the consecration of Russia by name, why not just do it in obedience to the Mother of God. What harm can come from doing it Our Lady’s way? “But Father, we can’t risk causing more problems. Naming Russia will cause tension with the Orthodox and with Russia and with others.” READ MY LIPS – I DON’T CARE! I’m sick and tired of politically correct people, especially politically correct careerist clerics. They are more of a danger to the Church than Russia or anyone else. Do we trust in the loving mercy of Almighty God and His Holy Mother? I shout out with Saint Faustina: “Jesus, I trust in You!”
Holy Father, you don’t seem too concerned about the politically correct careerists in the Vatican. Please consecrate Russia and put an end to all the speculation by those who say the consecration was never made.

In response to the desire of Holy Father Francis, the Statue of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima, venerated in the Little Chapel of Apparitions, will be brought to Rome on October 12/13 to be present at the Marian Day promoted by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization. On October 13, next to the Statue of Our Lady, Pope Francis will make the consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.[The] Marian Day is one of the great pontifical events marked down on the calendar of celebrations of the Year of Faith which will bring to Rome hundreds of movements and institutions connoted with Marian devotion.In a letter addressed to Bishop Antonio Marto, of Leiria-Fatima, the President of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, [Abp.] Rino Fisichella, informs that “all ecclesial entities of Marian spirituality” are invited to take part in this Marian day, a gathering which includes, on the 12th, a pilgrimage to the tomb of Apostle St. Peter and other moments of prayer and meditation and, on the 13th, a Mass presided over by Pope Francis, in St. Peter’s Square.In that letter, [Abp.] Fisichella wrote: “The Holy Father strongly desires that the Marian Day may have present, as a special sign, one of the most significant Marian icons for Christians throughout the world and, for that reason, we thought of the beloved original Statue of Our Lady of Fatima”.Therefore, the Statue of Our Lady will depart from the Shrine of Fatima on the morning of October 12 and return on the afternoon of October 13. Scheduled to take its place in the Little Chapel of Apparitions is the first Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, which is enthroned in the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary since December 8, 2003.
