Approved Mystic Said Russia Would be Consecrated After the Full Third Secret is Released

While there seems to be a consensus among many Catholics that the Consecration of Russia as requested by Our Lady of Fatima was fulfilled by Pope Francis on March 25, it’s important to remember that human consensus doesn’t count with God. As St. Augustine says, “Right is right even if no one is doing it, wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.”
Many Catholic bishops and priests throughout the world who had hoped that the Consecration of Russia would be done right now feel dismayed by it, which raises concerns about the validity of the Consecration. The Act of Consecration as performed by Pope Francis fell far short of what Our Lady at Fatima requested since it was supposed to be a world day of prayer in which the pope and bishops pray exclusively for the Consecration of Russia in order to expel to evil of Communism from Russia. This never happened.
Antonio Ruffini’s Prophecy about the Consecration of Russia
In 1991, the Blessed Virgin told Sr. Lucy of Fatima that the Third Secret of Fatima would be released at the height of a war with Russia, which means the Third Secret has yet to be released. According to the approved stigmatist and visionary Antonio Ruffini, the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary would not be done until the full Third Secret was released. This would mean that the Consecration of Russia by Pope Francis on March 25 was not valid since we know that the Third Secret has not yet been released.
Ruffini disclosed this revelation about the Consecration of Russia to Fr. Paul Kramer of the Fatima Center who worked under the late Fatima expert Fr. Nicholas Gruner. Ruffini also told Fr. Kramer that the pope that comes after John Paul II’s successor would be the one who consecrates Russia. But as Fr. Kramer points out, Ruffini was speaking of a true pope, not an anti-pope. Fr. Kramer said this in 2012 long before Francis had entered the picture so he could never be accused of bias against Francis. It could very well be that Benedict XVI’s successor has yet to come.
An Antipope on the Chair of Peter?
What is interesting is that in the days just prior to Francis’ March 25 consecration, we saw increasing speculation among credible priests and bishops that Francis may be an illegitimate pope, which some were seeing as a providential warning that the coming consecration of Russia would not be valid.
In any event, the Church should continue to pray that the true Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary be done. If in fact a future pope comes along and releases the Third Secret of Fatima then we’ll know for sure that the Consecration of Russia was never done.
