The news is that on 25 March, Feast of the Annunciation, Francis will “consecrate Russia and Ukraine” to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Also, in Fatima, the papal almoner Card. Krajewski will do “the same act, on the same day”. It is not clear if that will be at the same moment. It also is not clear that bishops around the world will be asked to do the same at the same moment.
In 1917 Our Lady asked that Russia be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart by the Pope and all the bishops. There have been several “consecrations” of one sort or another, but seemingly not quite in the way that Mary asked. IT is disputed.
People are asking me what I think about this.
What do I think about this? I think it depends a great deal on what is said and who says it.
Nevertheless, I don’t think it can hurt, so long as the Immaculate Heart of Mary is being invoked.
