Vatican Chief Exorcist says CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA STILL NOT DONE

“Therefore, that of 1984 was not a proper Consecration of Russia. I was there, kneeling just a couple of meters ahead of the Holy Father…”

When I became a priest, I didn’t think that my priestly life would have been so affected by Our Lady of Fatima! As a child, I was delighted to read about the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, which occurred at the end of World War I, in 1917. She appeared to three little shepherds, but they were so young: Lucy was 10 years old, Francisco was 9 and Jacinta 7, but they received such a great message!

What an important prophecy it was, full of events that would manifest themselves only many years later! But I was immediately devoted to Our Lady of Fatima, and from Her I received the grace of being chosen to organize the Consecration of Italy to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which occurred in 1959! I was appointed by the Italian Bishops Conference to organize such a marvelous consecration, but time was so short and we didn’t know how to make it in time! Well, we were able to because for the first time we decided to bring the statue of Our Lady of Fatima to Italy!

Back then, the so-called “Peregrinatio Mariae” (that is, bringing a statue of Our Lady in pilgrimage across a nation or a diocese) was not as common as it is today! We opted to move the Statue of Our Lady by helicopter, through all the major cities in Italy. There was nothing faster than the helicopter, back then, to quickly move the statue, and we only had a few months to do it, from April 1958 until September 1959, to make sure that Our Lady could visit the whole country of Italy.

I knew Padre Pio for many years, and I was able to find a way to bring the statue of Our Lady to Padre Pio as well! So, this was my first adventure: the Consecration of Italy to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Then, in 1984, when John Paul II decided to consecrate the world – the most solemn ceremony, the one that occurred in Rome on March 25, 1984 – on the day of the consecration the Statue of Our Lady of Fatima (the main one, the statue that is never moved from the Fatima Sanctuary) was flown over from Portugal and was venerated in Saint Peter’s Square! I was appointed that day to organize Saint Peter’s Square, but there were so many pilgrims, so many people that day, that they entirely filled Saint Peter’s Square and the roads around it, so that most of them were not even able to see the Pope or the statue!

However, that day the Pope did something unusual while pronouncing the consecration prayer. He wanted to consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. His entourage, however, was against it: “No, Holy Father, if you do this you’ll offend the Patriarch of Moscow”; or, “No, Holy Father, if you do this [you’ll go against the Soviets]”, etc.

So after several attempts to change his advisors’ minds, the Pope finally went along with them. He did not name Russia during the Consecration.

But he did do Our Lady of Fatima this service – he made it known very plainly and quite publicly that he was not performing that day the consecration requested by Our Lady of Fatima. And the Pope drew particular attention to this fact by alluding to it twice that day – first in the morning, during the prayer of consecration itself, and then again three hours later.

The text of the consecration prayer had been prepared many months before this ceremony. It was sent to all the bishops in a letter of December 8, 1983, and published in the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, on February 17, 1984.

But on that morning of March 25, 1984, well after that part of the Act of Consecration at which the Holy Father had pronounced the consecration of the world to the Blessed Virgin – seven paragraphs later, to be precise – he unexpectedly broke away from the prepared text. After the words “Mother of the Church,” he added the following words:

“Enlighten especially the peoples of which You await our consecration and confiding.”

This was the only change that he made to the planned ceremony, and his words clearly indicate that he knows that the Consecration of Russia asked for by Our Lady of Fatima was not accomplished by that day’s consecration.

His words were a plea for a special group of people whose consecration the Blessed Virgin was still awaiting.

Our Lady of Fatima only ever specified that She wanted the Consecration of RUSSIA.

And if that was not clear enough, he repeated this same message several hours later, when he gathered with 10,000 of the faithful in St. Peter’s Basilica at 4 p.m. to say goodbye to the Pilgrim Virgin statue.

Even then, hours after the morning’s consecration ceremony, the Pope acknowledged in a public prayer to Our Lady of Fatima that the consecration which She had asked for is yet to be done. In his prayer, he drew Her attention once again to this certain group of peoples (the peoples of Russia) that has a special need of being consecrated – a group of peoples, he said: “for whom You Yourself await our act of consecration and of entrustment.”

Our Lady only asked for a Consecration of Russia, because at Fatima She never asked for a consecration of the world. The latter was asked through Blessed Alessandrina Maria da Costa and the Portuguese bishops and followed another path. Therefore, that of 1984 was not a proper Consecration of Russia. I was there, kneeling just a couple of meters ahead of the Holy Father, and mentally to myself I said the words to consecrate Russia.

If Our Lady wants, then Our Lady will go to Moscow! Our Lady is able to reach every place in the world and She will go to Russia as well, the country that spread the worst error of the last century (and of our century too): Communism! Our Lady predicted it! If Russia will not be consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart, that nation would spread its errors all over the world, and in fact atheist communism did spread all over the world, because we didn’t do what Our Lady requested!

Our Lady, however, despite what has and what has not been done, is still able to destroy all these errors and to come back through Moscow and Russia to bring back the world to the righteous path. This way, that nation which spread the most heinous errors all over the world, including Communism, will become a missionary nation instead, from which many missionaries will come, in order to bring devotion to Our Lady all over the world! Fatima – that is, Our Lady – loves us and wants to bring us to Jesus and to give peace to the world.

Having given you this message, I am happy to bless every one of you: may the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary bring upon you the blessing of the Most Holy Trinity, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost; and may the love of Mary bring us to truly love Her Divine Son Jesus, because it is through Mary that Jesus came to us, and it is through Mary that we will go to Jesus. Praised be Jesus Christ, now and forever!

    “Many times the Most Holy Virgin told my cousins Francisco and Jacinta, as well as myself, that many nations will disappear from the face of the earth. She said that Russia will be the instrument of chastisement chosen by Heaven to punish the whole world if we do not beforehand obtain the conversion of that poor nation.” – Sr. Lucy of Fatima…What’s stopping us from the Consecration?

    • PaxTecum57

      philnmdg, I am confused, many say the Consecration has not been done. The Servant of God Sr. Lucia Dos Santos said many times over that the Consecration of March 25, 1984 was done and accepted by heaven. Who are we to believe, Sr. Lucia or the opinion of others? Fr. Amorth was a holy man but did he have the authority to contradict the seer of Our Lady herself? If Sr. Lucia was wrong then what are we to make of her own words. That’s what confuses me.

      • philnmdg

        The records show that the the Holy Pontiff’s did not consecrate Russia when they could have for their various reasons. This eye witness account of someone close to the situation is the best explanation about the actual situation I have read.

        • PaxTecum57

          philnmdg, There is a Cardinal who said that St. John Paul ll said Russia in a low voice. The Consecration was done by the Holy Father, all Bishops in union with him, all priests in union with their Bishops and all laity in union with their priests, bishops and the Holy Father. We were all instructed that the Intentions of the Consecration was for Russia PLUS the whole world. Sister Lucia said that that Consecration was accepted by heaven. Who are we to believe, those who think the Consecration was not valid? Or St. John Paul ll and the Servant of God Sr. Lucia Dos Santos?

          • philnmdg

            This would be wonderful news if it is true. Do you know if this is speculation or a first hand witness? Can you recall the Cardinal’s name? Thanks

          • PaxTecum57

            When I read about this the Cardinal stated it was first hand. Sr. Lucia stated that the world was about to be destroyed by Atomic and Nuclear bombs but that the Consecration averted it. She stressed these points, “Our Lady never gave a formula for the Consecration. The fact that Russia was implied it was accepted by Heaven”, “Consecration and Entrustment mean the same”. She rejected all the petitions sent to her after the Consecration, asking for the Consecration saying, “Its been done”. Most of this can be found in the Biography of Sr. Lucia, written by the Nuns who lived with her and spoke to her on these subjects. I was surprised to read about Sr. Lucia that I had never heard before.

          • vdmt55

            Our Lady told Father Gobbi that it was accepted through JPII and that the chastisement will be less because of it, but that she still awaited the consecration of Russia, that it would be done when the bloody events are well on there way. If anyone can say the world is better since 1984 they are kidding themselves. We now have legalized gay marriage, the acceptance of transgenderism and the promoting this lifestyle as good. God has to intervene and He will. Revelation 12 is happening in the sky this year in September 2017. We are not done yet my good people. There is more to come.

          • PaxTecum57

            vdmt55,
            Father Estefano Gobbi was a holy man. But concerning his Locutions the Church ruled that they were only his own piety. Father Gobbi lost many followers when he said Our Lady told him She was in fact appearing in Medjugorje. I ask who are we to believe, Sr. Lucia Dos Santos? Or others opinions? Our Lady did say that the Consecration would be done but it would be late. So for all we expected, we must remember that the Consecration was done late. I obtained the Biography of Sr. Lucia, written by the Nuns who lived with her for years. In it Sr. Lucia is quoted many times as saying that the Consecration was accepted by Heaven. For her to say such a thing I imagine Heaven told her this. Am I wrong to accept the words of Sr. Lucia as having more authority than those who only have opinions? We have the freedom to believe whom we wish. Why is it so wrong for me to take Sr. Lucia’s word for it? Something is wrong, something is not right, can we dismiss the words of the seer herself?

      • vdmt55

        There are many in the Vatican, wolves, who do not want the consecration of Russia.

  • jdumon

    Our Lady promised two things if Russia was properly consecrated:
    – The conversion of the orthodox people of Russia to the true catholic Faith (Sr Lucy spoke about a “miracle of conversion”).
    – A period of peace would be granted to the world.
    Where is the conversion, where is the period of peace ?
    For 5 years, from 1984 to 1989, there were many testimonials from relatives of Sr Lucy, journalists, convent’s sisters etc… who confirmed that Sr Lucy considered the Consecrationas was unproperly and invalidly done.
    Then she was ORDERED (as it was confirmed by the local bishop of Fatima) by the Vatican to shut up and to say that the 1984 consecration was “accepted by Heavens”.
    And of course, Heavens never refuses a Consecration whichever it is.
    But did we get the promised fruits? Certainly not.

  • PaxTecum57

    Then the Servant of God Sr. Lucia Dos Santos was in grave error when she said, “Our Lady never gave a formula for the Consecration”, “The Consecration has been done and Heaven has accepted it”. “The fact that Russia was implied was enough for the Consecration to be the one asked for by Our Lady” “Stop the theories and just follow what Our Lady said”. With these words of Sr. Lucia she will never be canonized as she was in grave error.

  • Ken

    The source documentation or evidence that Sr. Lucy stated that the Consecration of Russia was done in 1984 has never been revealed. Fake news? When you look at the world today do you believe that the Consecration with all o its fruits was accomplished?

    • Gerald Harp

      What i find puzzling is that the doubters who claim that the consecration in 1984 is not valid do not trouble themselves to search for the reality that now exists. Those churches in Russia that were still standing but were used for storage or latrines by orders of the communist state have now been restored as operating churches which are filled for observance of the Mass and many more have been built since 1984 and more still are going up and they are filled with people of faith. Even the leader of Russia is a devout Christian. Open your eyes good people. Our Blessed Lady has accepted the consecration.

      • Thank you! They will be overtaken by events as they await their third secret, which in nothing more than they wanting Our Lady to prove them right.

      • vdmt55

        She told Father Gobbi after JPII’s consecration in 1984 that Russia would be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart when the bloody events are well on there way. She said she accepted this consecration and that the chastisement will be less because of it, but Russia still needed to be consecrated to her heart. Father Gobbi died on the feasts of St. Peter and St. Paul.

      • PaxTecum57

        Gerald Harp,

        Many expected to see great things immediately following the Consecration.
        Sr. Lucia writes that something spectacular did in fact happen. She said, “The world was about to be destroyed by Atomic and Nuclear bombs. The Consecration averted it.” Now that is one spectacular miracle. We probably wouldn’t be here were it not for the Consecration of March 25, 1984. What you point out I have read about, great things are happening in Russia. Sr. Lucia was asked why Russia did not immediately convert. She gave a strong theological reason, she said, “Our Lady will keep her promise. THE PEOPLE OF RUSSIA HAVE A FREE WILL, it is now up to them”. The Church teaches that God gives us a free will and will never violate it. The Russian people are using their free will and are making a return to God. Russia is well on its way to a full Conversion. How many other spectacular things have happened since the Consecration? We will know everything when God calls us from this life. For now, I believe!

      @FM Shyanguya, Thank you. Your Post is reassuring. I’m part of the crowd who believes Sr. Lucia Dos Santos words concerning the Consecration. I’ve been dragged through the mud for accepting the words from the one that Our Lady entrusted the spreading of Devotion to Her Immaculate Heart.

      • You are most welcome and thank you! Keep up the good fight, close to Our Lady, and God bless you and yours and his work at your hands.

  • Origen

    I gotta say sometimes this is like playing cards with the neighbors dogs. I’d have to say how naive and gullible people really are. WE ARE NOT IN AN ERA OF PEACE!!! THE CONSECRATION WAS NEVER DONE!!! THE ENTIRE WORLD IS GOING TO GO THROUGH GREAT SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL CHASTISEMENTS!!! All of this because our beloved Popes disobeyed a direct mandate from Heaven USURPING GODS AUTHORITY!!!
