The consecration will be included in the program of the International Pilgrimage of May 12/13 and will be made on the 13th at a time to be announced later.

May’s International Anniversary Pilgrimage, on the 96th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady to seers Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, will be presided over by Mons. Orani Tempesta, Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro.

Pope Francis asked, on two different occasions, His Eminence José Policarpo, Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon and President of the Bishops Conference of Portugal, to consecrate his Petrine Ministry to Our Lady of Fatima.

The revelation was made by Cardinal Policarpo on the afternoon of April 8, at the Shrine of Fatima, during the opening remarks of the 181st Plenary Assembly of the Bishops Conference of Portugal (CEP).

Towards the end of the opening speech, Cardinal Policarpo revealed: “Pope Francis has asked me twice to consecrate his new ministry to Our Lady of Fatima. It is a command I can fulfill in silent prayer. But it would be nice if the whole Bishops Conference joined me in fulfilling this request. Mary will guide us in all our work and also in the way we may fulfill this desire of Pope Francis”.

    …and the consecration of Russia? The above is a very good sign. Perhaps, one hopes, Karelia and Lake Ladoga, of special (family) interest to me, will eventually be returned to their rightful owners. But more important, the return of Russia to Christianity from its present captivity in the pit of the snake named Putin.

  2. Laura says:

    I was thinking that while he had the whole Bishops Conference joined together, that the Holy Father would then fulfill Heaven’s request.

  3. toad says:

    “…the Holy Father would then fulfill Heaven’s request.”

    To paraphrase Carlyle, (it’s OK – he’s dead) “..By God, he’d better!”

    (….and it’s his métier, after all.)

    Fatima and Russias Evils? What in Christs terms are these Evils? This is the acid test of Fatima.
    What are these Evils? The following is Pacelli’s (future Pius XII) opinion in 1930’s
    “..Suppose .. that Communism is the most visible among the organs of subversion against the Church and the tradition of Divine Revelation. Thus, we will witness the invasion of everything that is spiritual: philosophy, science, law, teaching, the arts, the media, literature, theater, and religion.
    I am concerned about the confidences of the Virgin to the little Lucia of Fatima. The persistence of the Good Lady in face of the danger that threatens the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that the modification of the Faith, liturgy, theology, and soul of the Church would represent.
    I hear around me partisans of novelties who want to demolish the Holy Sanctuary, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her adornments, and make her remorseful for her historical past. Well, my dear friend, I am convinced that the Church of Peter must affirm her past, or else she will dig her own tomb. I will fight this battle with the greatest energy both inside and outside the Church, even if the forces of evil may one day take advantage of my person, actions, or writings, as they try today to deform the History of the Church. ..”

    July 13, 1917 Our Lady promises to “come and ask the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart”
    June 13, 1929 Our Lady fulfills her promise, asking “for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart, promising its conversion through this means and the hindering of the propagation of its errors.”
    December 1940 Sr. Lucia writes letter to Pius XII, saying that Our Lord Himself requests the Pope to “consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with a special mention for Russia, and order that all the Bishops of the world do the same in union with Your Holiness.”
    October 31, 1942 Pope Pius XII consecrates the world to the Immaculate Heart.
    July 7, 1952 Pope Pius XII consecrates the Russian people to the Immaculate Heart

    It is a self evident truth that De facto this Consecration ” ..AND ORDER THAT ALL BISHOPS OF THE WORLD DO THE SAME IN UNION..” hasn’t happened and won’t now happen, because the moment has passed.
    53 years of pussy footing around, considerable confusion and out right denial.
    That Russia of 1917, 1929 and even 1960’s has gone and we are living today with precisely the consequences of not obeying Heaven.
    What is happening right now with the Global financial and growing economic crisis and the increasing political tensions the Wars etc.. is a consequence of NOT Consecrating Russia.
    The Papal Authority itself is totally changed since 1958 even to the point of accepting an Emeritous title.
    There is one Light and that is a Promise made at Fatima “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH.” But what does IN THE END mean?

    “There is one Light and that is a Promise made at Fatima “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH.” But what does IN THE END mean?”

    Surely. Roger has asked the Existential Question of The Year, possibly of The Millennium?
    All Toad can offer in answer is, “When the fat lady sings,” but that is sadly, and palpably, inadequate.
