The True and the False About the Consecration of Russia

The False: Back during the 1990s, we were sent a pamphlet entitled “Two Hours With Sister Lucia” [available here]. It was generated by an interpreter whose address was given as St. Anne’s Oratory in Fátima, Portugal, the transcription with many photographs of two meetings between famed seer Lucia dos Santos and two cardinals, a bishop, and a priest. What it contained was jarring: According to the detailed, time-stamped transcript, on October 11, 1992, during the first meeting, at the Carmel of St. Teresa Convent in Coimbra, Portugal, when asked by Cardinal Padiyara of Ernaculam, India, the loaded question of whether, on March 25, 1984, Pope Saint John Paul II had finally accomplished a key request of Our Lady — consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, which she told the seers would bring about the conversion of that threatening, atheist empire — the seer replied (as if expecting the question): “Yes. Yes. Yes. The consecration was already partially done. Pope Pius XII made it in 1942, on October 31, but it lacked union with all the bishops of the world, which Pope John Paul II finally managed to unite in 1984.” Read in full

Now the Truth:

America Needs Fatima: In order to forestall the damnation of many souls and God’s chastisement, during the third apparition on July 13, 1917, Our Lady of Fatima while speaking to Lucia dos Santos offered as a solution the devotion to her Immaculate Heart, the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays for five consecutive months, and Russia’s consecration to her Immaculate Heart.

The Blessed Virgin warned that, if her requests went unheeded, World War II would break out and Communism would spread its errors throughout the world, provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. Finally, she promised divine forgiveness and the triumph of her Immaculate Heart, which would be followed by Russia’s consecration and conversion. Read here in full.
