Pope Francis to consecrate the world, will it include Russia?
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.
Pingback:Pope Francis to consecrate the world, will it include Russia? - CATHOLIC FEAST - Every day is a Celebration
Just … Leave Russia alone. Concentrate on your own problems in the West. You have a huge problem with the declining numbers of Christians. Russia is stepping up to the plate, defending persecuted Christiana (oh, have you forgotten about them as well?). It may yet be Holy Orthodoxy that saves all. I will never go for a church that makes its cardinals dance at a papal mass.
Russia must be consecrated alone and by name. Well said Father. This is out of respect for Russia as the future of Christianity after the nuclear war and the annihilation of various nations.
Consecrate Russia by NAME!!!…not the world.
I agree.. Russia has to be specifically mentioned. More people need to pray for this. Jesus will return one day. We need World Peace already.
One word, Russia. Lets keep it simple, Its getting a bit late in the hour. A Prayer consecration with all the bishops never hurt anything. The Church has been attacked and severely, the Church is Jesus Christs mystical body, thus it suffers the mysteries of our Lord, just as He did, to the Cross, to the Resurrection. Let us work together in unity, the world is imploding, we must quickly and seriously. May my prayers are with you, pray much for the Holy Father.
“Nevertheless, if men in our century, with its derisive pride, reject the holy Rosary, there is an innumerable multitude of holy men of every age and every condition who have always held it dear. They have recited it with great devotion, and in every moment they have used it as a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight, to preserve the integrity of life, to acquire virtue more easily, and, in a word, to attain real peace among men.” -Pope Pius XI
“Among all the devotions approved by the Church, none has been so favored by so many miracles as the Rosary devotion.” – Pope Pius IX
“The Rosary is a powerful weapon to put the demons to flight and to keep oneself from sin.” Pope Pius XI
Amen! Hail Mary! Russia!
Wake up and smell the coffee, we going down fast, pray pray pray that the Holy Father will mention specifically Russia, its like making beef stew and leaving out the beef, we need the word Russia. words are so important, In the beginning was The Word and The Word was with God and the Word was God. etc. Words, even little ones are so important. Pray pray pray please and fast for this intention. Our Blessed Mother said “In the end it will be done, it will be late” Pray and fast for this.
It seems so unbelievable that such a seemingly simple request should be such a major problem to get accomplished. Especially when this request is made by the Blessed Mother and, for so many years now. I think whenever this will get done, we will see some dramatic events.
You really don’t get it, Mary. Whenever we hear “lets consecrate Russia”, it sounds like “okay, let’s make the whole country ROMAN CATHOLIC, make them acknowledge the Pope and make the Russian Patriarch subordinate to the Pope, busting him down to the lower rank that is shared by the byzantine cardinals”. You may protest that that’s not true, but that’s the implicit message that we perceive whenever we hear this consecration talk coming up.
Umm… That’s kind of what our Lady meant when she promised to “CONVERT” Russia. When Russia is consecrated, the Orthodox will rejoin the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic (and the only true) Church and everyone will witness the triumph of the Mother who achieves such great peace and unity in her family.
No its a prayer and out of love for our Eastern Orthodox brothers and sisters and the rest of the world. Listen, you all can consecrate the West to Theotokos should you believe through private revelation of Jesus Christ it need be done.
The argument is indeed plausible in that Russia is indeed regaining its Christian heritage. Still we have a world wide mess out here, so if this indeed is a matter of correcting an oversight, then lets be done with it and move on.
By all means lets prolong world peace, over a prayer and the word Russia? No that’s a stone that is not bread.
Otherwise I believe the prayers of the faithful have been heard, and just as in past social transitional periods these souls have prayed the Rosary, in a word, they sought to bring true peace to the world as they do today. I believe that’s “why” we are even having this discussion.
Dear Holy Father and Bishops of the world:
Please trust in Our Lady of Fatima requested. Please consecrate Russia by NAME to Her Immaculate Heart.
I copied someone’s comments because I agree with this person.
If Russia had been properly consecrated as so many neo-Catholics insist, Russia would no longer be persecuting the Catholic Church. Russia would not lead the world in abortion statistics and suicide. Russia would be an agent of peace. Its “Orthodox” Church would no longer be staffed by schismatic KGB operatives, but by converts to the Catholic faith. And if Fatima was a mere “private” revelation, 70,000 people would not have witnessed the most colossal visible miracle in history.
Lola et al.,
It is conversion to Jesus Christ. Okay?
Let the Pope and bishops consecrate Russia alone and by name.
Let the Pope do the consecrating and Heaven do the converting.
Whether thru the Orthodox Church or some other way is not where things are urgent. The Consecration of Russia alone is urgent.
Our Lady didn’t ask for the Pope to consecrate “the world” to her Immaculate Heart. She asked for the Pope to consecrate “Russia”, specifically, to her Immaculate Heart. And that has not been done, specifically.
So Yes, please, Papa Francesco, we are praying that you will be the pope chosen, at this time, and with great courage and faith, put your trust in the Mother of God and her Immaculate Heart, and do as she has requested. Russia specifically by name, consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
How urgently the entire world and the Church Herself, needs to hear this being done. And Mary, Co-Redemptrix made the 5th Marian dogma of the Church. The world is crumbling around us as we worry about hurting the feelings of the Russian Orthodox to such an extent that we refuse to do that which Our Holy Mother has told us we need to do for peace to follow.
See the power of prayers made to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of Heaven, called for by Pope Francis on the vigil of the Nativity of Mary, to halt disastrous war against Syria. Have they had great positive effect? Yes, most certainly. 100,000 people in St. Peter’s Square praying the Rosary with Pope Francis. And people all over the world fasting and praying the rosary for peace.
What might she accomplish for peace if her request to consecrate Russia is finally heard and acted upon in the way in which she asked?
Consecrate, specifically, the nation of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Be not afraid.
Since 1940, every Pope has been disobedient to Mary. Why then should we as Catholics obey and follow any of the Church’s teachings or rules if in fact our highest leaders DO NOT? Mary promised peace in the world if the Pope would consecrate Russia. Some people say that it has been done. Excuse me but Mary IS NOT A LIAR! Thus, the leaders of our church have no backbone. Our Church had grown corrupt and seems to care more about politics rather than be obedient to Jesus Christ and His Holy Mother Mary. I am one dissapointed catholic.
Cardinal Sodano and Cardinal Bertone were liars and evils. They claimed Russia was done. They made Catholics into confusion.
(I copy and past from the Fatima Center letter to this)
The stakes are high! World peace, or the annihilation of nations! We cannot afford the slightest slip-up!
We are confident Pope Francis can be reached. He is the most accessible Pope in modern times! For one thing, he lives in the guest house where visiting bishops stay in Rome! Our bishops may be staying under the same roof as the Pope! There is little formality about the Holy Father. This is all to Our Lady’s advantage for the success of this mission.
And there is a development of immense importance that favors the success of our mission: Secretary of State Cardinal Bertone, arch-enemy of Fatima and this apostolate, is on his way out!
For years, Bertone tried to bury the Fatima Messages — and failed! His last day in office will be October 15, but his influence is finished as of now! Bertone won’t be able to sabotage our mission! We have a clear field to reach the Pope!
Please pray with rosary everyday as Our Lady of Fatima requested.
I hope Pope and all bishops of the world will consecrate Russia by NAME to the Immaculate Heart of Mary soon.
“In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted. A period of peace will be granted to the world.” — Our Lady of Fatima in l917.
I believe the consecration of the world including Russia by the Pope and the Bishops will be done on October 13. To do otherwise would be a clear message that Satan is in charge of our church and all on earth must suffer first before the consecration of Russia occurs by a new Pope … Presiding over a suffering surviving population on earth.
Listen folks! To say that if the Pope does not consecrate Russia will show that “Satin is in charge of our church” is over the top. There is a lot more going on than any of us know. The most important thing we all can do is be obedient and pray!
I did this post not to tell the Holy Father what he should do, but to get a conversation going.
Renew your personal consecration to Our Lady daily, like I do. Our Lady’s army depends on each one of us being faithful to Christ and His Church.
Our Lady of Fatima NEVER asked for consecration of the world. She asked for consecration of RUSSIA by NAME as St. Lucy said many times.
If I may, here is a link to the EWTN website regarding the texts of the Papal consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1952, 1982 and 1984.
http://www.ewtn.com/library/papaldoc/consecra.htm#Pius XII, 1952
Something or a great many things are missing from Our Lady of Fatima which we will never know for whatever reason. I have been a Catholic before Vatican 2 and after and the differences are enormous to a most negative degree. Our leaders, as nice and some as venerable as can be are not going to reveal everything involved which is why there is so much confusion. We have to know all the facts to draw any conclusion much less something as big as this. So the beat goes on and will go on. I’ll find out when I die and I have just reached age 70 so it will be sooner rather than later. Just remember that 95% or so of the world’s leaders are not nice people, but somehow they have the power and control. That should tell you who is in charge on the planet earth. The “Prince of Darkness” of course said by Christ himself. Lastly, did you ever consider the fact that if it were not for the Pharisees (The leaders) the man handing out communion to you on Sunday AM mass would be a Jew. Interesting huh?
Well, now the hype is over, it the consecration wasn’t done, Lord have mercy, all hell will break loose but we deserve it all and more. Even Our Beloved Blessed Mother’s Immaculate Heart not mentioned but we can still take refuge in her Immaculate Heart. May she not abandon us in our time of trial.
I had high hopes that Pope Francis would do the Consecration to Our Lady of Fatima as according to the way she requested it should be worded. I am very disappointed that it still was not done even at this late date. This is another reason that increases my belief in the prophecies of Garabandal, Spain are true and correct.
I am a believer and promoter of Garabandal Messages since 1968, when I first heard about it. I have been to Garabandal twice and over the years, I have been in the company of the visionaries a few times. They always seemed extremely humble and sincere.
My husband and I used to have a Center where we live and Joey Lomangino used to come to do his Conferences here many times. We still do whatever we can to tell anyone who seems interested about Our Lady of Mount Carmel of Garabandal and now they have everything on video and on internet websites so this has spread far and wide. I think the final prophesies will not be too much longer in happening.
In the Union of Prayers,
It is March 18, 2015 and the Pope had not consecrated Russia to the Immaculate heart of Mary..Russia/Putin, China are at a very bad relationship with the US and other countries…they dislike Obama as do the people of the USA…we are in big trouble.
Well, what can we say that we haven’t already said. Russia has to be consecrated not the rest of the world and it has to be done the way the Pope was instructed to do. I don’t think it will happen because I truly believe the obstacles are overwhelming from all directions. I guess we just truly don’t want to do this consecration because of our own inclination to evil(including the Pope) Pope Francis is even weaker and way more liberal than all the previous popes and they couldn’t do it the right way. So you tell me and all of us what exactly is preventing all this. The Devil is the Prince of darkness and the ruler of this world. Maybe we should look at this somewhat harder. I don’t have any other answer, do You?
“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.” — Our Lady of Fatima in l917.
Don’t despair just yet. God is with us all, and within us all. He won’t let us down.
Bear in mind that God is our true Holy Father.
Apparently there is a possibility that we have the most deaths on the planet (the WW’s and Russia (Revolution and Ukraine farmers) and China massacres (people’s revolution)) prophesied by our Holy Lady with the Fatima prophecies if specifically Russia was not consecrated to her care.
“How Eight Popes Failed To Consecrate Russia with John Salz”
I do not know how exact the relationship but there is plenty of Bible record of such things happening (see the books Isaiah and Jeremiah). Aside from any arguing; it is pretty scary to think that God does exist and actually does make real demands for love, prayer, etc., and has expectations of us! It would not hurt Russia or anyone to seek Mary’s protection (in reality aside from human contortions)! Why does the Pope do the Russia consecration (by specific name) and just make it obvious.
