Pope Consecrates the World to Our Lord’s Mother

Blessed Virgin Mary Regina Angelorum

Pope Francis consecrated the world to the care of our Lord’s mother today.

I remember that Pope John Paul II consecrated Russia to Our Lady, and the impossible happened. Russia quit the Communist fight without firing a shot.

No one in the secular world has ever acknowledged the miraculous nature of what happened. Instead, they try to explain it in terms of economics and such. In truth, it was unprecedented, and economics do not explain it. Nothing, except the miraculous intervention of Our Lady could have ended the Cold War so suddenly and peacefully.

So, my reaction to Pope Francis’ action today is that I hope Our Lady leads this world out of its self-made hells in the same way. This world needs a miracle.

You can read the Holy Father’s homily here.

This is the full text of Pope Francis’ prayer by which he consecrated the world to Our Lady today. I pray my personal prayer of consecration to Our Lady almost every morning. If you have made a similar consecration, today would be a good day to renew it.

From Zenit:

Holy Mary Virgin of Fatima,

with renewed gratitude for your maternal presence

we join our voice to that of all the generations

who call you blessed.

We celebrate in you the works of God,

who never tires of looking down with mercy

upon humanity, afflicted with the wound of sin,

to heal it and save it.

Accept with the benevolence of a Mother

the act of consecration that we perform today with confidence,

before this image of you that is so dear to us.

We are certain that each of us is precious in your eyes

and that nothing of all that lives in our hearts is unknown to you.

We let ourselves be touched by your most sweet regard

and we welcome the consoling caress of your smile.

Hold our life in your arms:

bless and strengthen every desire for good;

revive and nourish faith;

sustain and enlighten hope;

awaken and animate charity;

guide all of us along the path of holiness.

Teach us your own preferential love

for the little and the poor,

for the excluded and the suffering,

for sinners and the downhearted:

bring everyone under your protection

and entrust everyone to your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus.

Amen.

    I hate to be a party-pooper; but this is about the FIFTH time the Pope has consecrated either the Church, [Paul VI, 1964] the world, [Pius XII, 1942 - John Paul II, 1982, 1984], or Russia, [Pius XII, 1952] and NOTHING has happened. Russia, and the world, are still under the Judeo-Masonic yoke of COMMUNISM; the Church is still in the hands of the Apostates, Satanists and the Sodomites; the Catholic faith, morals, worship, and discipline are daily being profaned by all the powers of Hell; and even children are being handed over to the Demon Asmodeus.

      NOTHING has happened? Really. Maybe not in your life. But you do not speak for me or for the millions whose lives have been changed because of the good and saintly popes we have had, at least from Pius XII, under whose papacy I came into the world, and now Papa Francisco. Try to look around you for the good that is in the world, for a change.

    Actually Russia is undergoing a transformation as of late. The President is concerned about the state of the family in Russia, mostly about abortion and homosexuality and the declining fertility rate.

      how is the president concerned, exactly? By leaving his wife, taking a young lover (at least one), and stealing billions and billions and billions of national funds and putting them it the hands of around 110 thugs?

    The Russians are a great people, fierce but strong and noble. The Soviets created more martyrs than all the centuries before combined, and the blood of those martyrs will be the seed of a renewed Church. Maybe not in our lifetimes, but it will come.

    Once again, we have a substitution for what Our Lady specifically asked for at Fatima, and thus we will continue to get “substituted” results instead of the full and lasting result that She promised us, simply because the Popes and Bishops of the Church are scared to death to publicly utter the word “Russia” (and ONLY Russia) in a Consecration prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary exactly the way She asked for it. Our Lord told St. Margaret Mary to tell King Louis XIV to publicly consecrate France to His Sacred Heart, because the forerunner of today’s version of communism was about to strike France (and thus the Church and the rest of the world), but the King was afraid of doing so because he didn’t want to “offend” the heretics and secularists of his day…Then his son, King Louis XV refused to do it too, as well as his grandson, King Louis XVI. Our Lord had enough of this, so on exactly the 100th anniversary of His original request to St. Margaret Mary, the common people (called the Third Estate) deposed the King from his throne and implemented the secular catastrophe that has come to be known as the French Revolution and the “Age of Enlightenment.” Catholics were persecuted and murdered, churches closed, destroyed, or repurposed for secular aims, and all Catholic property became the property of the state. King XVI, realizing what he had done (or rather failed to do) made a consecration of France in his prison cell, but of course this didn’t fulfill the simple, but very specific request of Our Lord, and the King was finally beheaded. And France has never had another king since then. THIS IS ALL A HISTORICAL FACT. The effects of this catastrophe still infect the church and the world today, although under the banners of socialism, fascism, Marxism, and communism. In His apparition to Sister Lucy in Rianjo in 1944, Our Lord said to her that if the Pope did not follow the instructions this time, that he would ” follow the King of France into misfortune”. Eventually, Our Lord said the consecration will be done, but the hour will be “late.” So far this hour still hasn’t come, so God only knows how late it’s going to be. Why does the Church and the world have to fall into almost complete ruin before we will wake up and do what Heaven tells us to do in the very first place, when all of this could be completely avoided? Russia, use the word “Russia” already, for Heaven’s sake!!! Be more afraid of what God will do if you continue to disobey and make substitutes for His program than what Russia or any heretic could possibly do for just saying “Russia” in a five-minute public prayer!!!
