.- Pope Francis will consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary this Oct. 13 as part of the Marian Day celebration that will involve the statue of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima.

“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,” wrote Archbishop Rino Fisichella.

Archbishop Fisichella, who serves as president of the pontifical council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, made his remarks in a letter to Bishop Antonio Marto of Leiria-Fatima.

According to the Portuguese shrine's website, the statue of Our Lady of Fatima will leave for Rome on the morning of Oct. 12 and return on the afternoon of Oct. 13. The statue normally resides in the shrine’s Little Chapel of Apparitions.

  1. Dear Holy Father and all Bishops of the world:

    Please trust in Our Lady of Fatima requested. Please consecrate Russia by NAME to Her Immaculate Heart on the same day at the same time.

    Our Lady of Fatima NEVER asked for the consecration of the world. She said RUSSIA.

    I pray with my rosary everyday.

  2. I copied someone’s comments below 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.

    Please, Catholics, pray with Rosary everyday as Our Lady of Fatima requested.

    May Gob bless you.

  3. Time and again Sister Lucy explained, "Our Lady of Fatima did NOT ask for the consecration of the world, but the Consecration of RUSSIA."

    Following are testimonies of various personal interviews with Sister Lucy over many years where she repeats the same point again and again:

    In Our Lady of Fatima (1947), pg. 226; Professor William Thomas Walsh reports: "Lucy made it plain that Our Lady did NOT ask for the consecration of the world to Her Immaculate Hear. What She demanded specifically was the consecration of RUSSIA."

    In the book, Vision of Fatima, 1949, page 80; Father Thomas McGlynn reports that Sister Lucy was emphatic at correcting consecration of the world to read consecration of Russia. "No!," Sister Lucy said. "Not the world! RUSSIA, RUSSIA!"

    In the book II Pellegrinaggio Della Meraviglie, published under the auspices of the Italian Episcopate (Rome 1960, page 440) a little-known revelation of Our Lady of Fatima to Sister Lucy is recounted. The Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Lucy in May, 1952 and said: "Make it known to the Holy Father that I am always awaiting the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart. Without the Consecration, Russia will not be able to convert, nor will the world have peace."

    Father umberto Maria Pasquale, S.D.B., had known Sister Lucy since 1939. Up to 1982, he had received 157 letters from her. On May 12, 1982, Father Umberto wrote in L'Osservatore Romano (the Pope's own newspaper) that Our Lady of Fatima never asked for the consecration of the world but ONLY of RUSSIA.

    On August 5, 1978, he asked her in person, "Has Our Lady ever spoken to you about the consecration of the world to Her Immaculate Heart? And Sister Lucy replied, "NO, Father Umberto, NEVER! At the Cova da Iria in 1917, Our Lady promised: "I shall come to ask for the Consecration of RUSSIA..."

    Father Umberto, wanting a written reply to his question, then wrote Sister Lucy a letter. On April 13, 1980, Sister Lucy wrote back: "In replying to your question. I will clarify: Our Lady of Fatima, in Her request, ONLY referred to the Consecration of RUSSIA..."

    Why Jesus Wants the Consecration of RUSSIA?

    Sister Lucy asked Jesus why He would not convert Russia except through the specific Consecration of Russia. Jesus replied:

    "Because I want My whole Church to recognize that Consecration as a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that later on My Church will extend the devotion to the Immaculate Heart and place this devotion beside devotion to My Sacred Heart."

    The only way to convert Russia is for the Pope and the bishops, on the same day, at the same time, to solemnly and publicly, together pronounce the act of Consecration of specifically RUSSIA to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    Only then, will the world have Peace. The alternative of not obeying the command of the Queen of Heaven is "various nations will be annihilated" and the enslavement of the surviving nations.
    "Without the Consecration, Russia will not be able to convert, nor will the world have peace."
