Consecration of Russia
to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
We can all play a part in bringing about the Consecration of Russia. Pray the following consecration prayer daily. Order prayer card copies from the Fatima Center and circulate them to all your relatives and friends, and to your pastors and bishops. Encourage all to pray this simple consecration prayer and offer it fervently for the Holy Father to soon make the solemn, public consecration of Russia together with the Catholic Bishops of the world, as Our Lady requested at Fatima.
O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, although it is over 80 years ago that Thou first came to Fatima, we hasten today to come before Thee. We prostrate ourselves at Thy throne of grace and we seek to fulfill as far as we are capable of, all that Thou hast so graciously requested when Thou didst visit the Church Militant in Thy Fatima apparitions.
The abominable sins of the world, the persecutions waged against the Church of Jesus Christ, still more the apostasy of the nations and of Christian souls, and finally the forgetting of Thy motherhood of grace by a great number grievously wound Thy Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, so united in its compassion to the suffering of the Sacred Heart of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ.
In order to make reparation for so many crimes, Thou hast asked for the establishment of the reparatory devotion to Thy Immaculate Heart; and with the purpose of ending the punishments sent by God that Thou didst foretell, Thou didst make Thyself the messenger of the Most High to request of the Vicar of Jesus Christ, united with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to Thy Immaculate Heart. Alas, Thy message has not yet been fully taken into consideration.
This is why, in order to hasten the happy day when the Sovereign Pontiff will accede at last to the requests of Thy Divine Son, without ascribing to ourselves an authority that does not belong to us, but penetrated with solicitude for the condition of the universal Church, by a humble supplication addressed to Thy Immaculate Heart and united to all faithful bishops, priests and believers, we are resolved to respond for our part to the requests of Heaven.
Deign then, O Most Holy Mother of God, in the first place, to accept our solemn act of reparation that we present to Thy Immaculate Heart. We offer it to Thee in reparation for all the offenses by sinners and unbelievers, which most certainly deeply offend Thee and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
In the second place, as much as it is in our power, we give, deliver, and consecrate Russia to Thy Immaculate Heart: we implore Thee, in Thy maternal mercy, to take this nation under Thy powerful protection, to make of it Thy domain where Thou reignest as Queen, to make of this land of persecutions a “vessel of election” and of blessing.
We beseech Thee that Thou make this nation submit to Thyself so well that, converted from its “legal” impiety, it may become a new kingdom for Our Lord Jesus Christ, a new inheritance for His sweet scepter, and having returned from its ancient schism, and come back to the unity of the one fold of the eternal Shepherd and thus subject to the Vicar of Thy Divine Son, may it become an ardent apostle of the social Kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ over all the nations of the world.
O Ever Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Mercy, we implore Thee furthermore to manifest to the world the truth of Thy universal mediation of grace by so brilliant a miracle of Thy suppliant all-powerfulness. Deign at last, O Queen of Peace, to bring to the world the peace that the world cannot give, the peace from weapons and the peace for souls, the peace of Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Christ; and the Kingdom of Christ through the reign of Thy Immaculate Heart, O Mary. Amen
