Cardinal Burke Affirms Consecration of Russia Not Done Nor Third Secret Fully Revealed

This is wonderful news, wonderful, that is, that a high ranking prelate is now verifying Father Gruner’s stand, even quoting Father Gruner’s often used source, Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité.

Fatima Perspectives, Christopher Ferrara: In my column of April 24, I expressed the view that “the laity must take the lead in speaking the truth about our situation” in the midst of this endlessly turbulent pontificate because “it is certain there is no help on the way from the Princes of the Church.”

I am very happy to abandon that opinion where Cardinal Raymond Burke is concerned. I have already reported here that at the just-concluded Rome Life Forum, which met to address the growing Bergoglian crisis post-Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Burke called for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary with these words: Full article is here.

    You have totally mischarachterized the Cardinal’s speech. I challenge any of your readers to read the ENTIRE transcript for themselves,and they will see that what is being asserted in your article is simply not true. Cardinal Burke never said what you are saying he said and it is easily proved by reading tbe speech in it’s entirety, IF you are interested in the truth.

  • Yes, please readers, READ IT, and you will see that we have not mischaracterized what His Eminence said.

    I have heard the whole speech, and further some excerpts several times, as well as going over the script. I see no mischaractarization here. Cardinal Burke specifically said “Let us consecrate ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and work for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Certainly, Pope Saint John Paul II consecrated the world, including Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984. But, today, once again, we hear the call of Our Lady of Fatima to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, in accord with her explicit instruction.”

    The “in accord with her explicit instruction” seems to imply that the process of consecration was not “perfected” as it were, which I would think would be a reference to the fact that even though (at least) 2 popes, that I know of, have attempted consecration (at least) 3 times, again, to my knowledge. They have not done it with the unity of all the bishops like Our Lady has asked. I also ask the question that if it had been done properly by the popes, why would it need to be re-attempted, even by the same pope, Pope Saint John Paul II, twice?

    Furthermore, and maybe the most important thing in this post: Even if the majority of the members of the Church are right in presuming that the consecration has been accomplished- What HARM would it do to continuously pray for it? We know that prayers to Our Lady (and of course Our Lord) do not go unheeded or unused. Our Lady will use the merits from the prayers we offer (say those we pray for souls, who might already be in Heaven, or who, sadly, didn’t make it) for the best and most worthy of purposes. I believe it was either St. Alphonsus de Ligouri, or St. Louis de Montfort (for some reason I always confuse the two)who said essentially that.
