On March 17, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States addressed USCCB President Archbishop José H. Gomez with a letter in which he was given formal notice about the upcoming papal consecration of Russia and Ukraine. Therein Archbishop Gomez is asked “to inform the members of the USCCB and, through them, the priests of the various dioceses and eparchies of the country.”
In his letter to the Los Angeles Archbishop, Pierre says: “In the context of the tragic events unfolding in Ukraine, the Holy Father, Pope Francis will lead an Act of Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25th next.”
The Nuncio continues:
“The Holy Father intends to invite each Bishop, or equivalent in law, together with his priests, to join in this act of consecration, if possible, at an hour corresponding to 5pm Rome time. In the coming days, the Holy Father will address a letter of invitation to the Bishops, enclosing the text of the Prayer of Consecration in the various languages. I write now, asking you to inform the members of the USCCB and, through them, the priests of the various dioceses and eparchies of the country, about the Holy Father’s invitation.”
Archbishop Pierre goes on to say:
“The same information will be shared with the federal authorities in Washington, D.C. and with the Diplomatic Corps of this capital. An invitation is being extended to the members of the same Corps to attend a Mass offered by Cardinal Wilton Gregory, Archbishop of Washington, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 12 noon on Friday, March 25th next.”
Archbishop Pierre’s letter was acknowledged by USCCB General Secretary Fr. Michael J.K. Fuller, who states:
Your Eminence / Your Excellency,
“I am pleased to share the attached copy of a letter from His Excellency Most Reverend Christophe Pierre, Apostolic Nuncio, regarding the Act of Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25th.”
Consecrate Only Russia
Francis' decision to summon the world’s bishops to consecrate Russia with him constitutes a major victory since failure to include the bishops would render the Consecration invalid.
However, it is also important that the Consecration not mention other countries, save the 1 Ukraine, but that it focus exclusively on consecrating Russia. For the Consecration is all about converting Russia that it might become a Catholic country that no longer poses a threat to the nations and to its own people. It’s about delivering Russia from Communism.
Because of Rome’s failure to properly consecrate Russia in the past, Russia has grown into a global demon that is presently generating the rising tide of evil throughout the world, i.e. the race-riots, the draconian lockdowns, the invasion of the Ukraine.
This is not to mention the devastation wrought by Russia within the Church. For decades Russia has continued to spread its errors throughout the Church so that the Church today has been all but converted to a Marxist training camp wherewith to indoctrinate the faithful with the socialist precepts of lay empowerment, “open borders,” “social justice,” women’s rights, LGBT tolerance and the new wave of revolutionary thought. Yea, the ugly hand of Communism has reached in today to desecrate the Body of Christ with all manner of profanation, e.g. Communion in the hand, gay “Masses,” Pachamama worship, etc.
Hence Russia needs to be exorcised as it were. The pope and bishops must publicly ‘lay hands’ on the beast and cast out the demon of Communism, which can only be done if the focus is only on Russia without the mention of other countries.
Consecration Prayer Will Determine the Success of the Consecration
The text of the Consecration prayer will play the major role in determining the success of the Consecration. It is hoped that through this prayer the pope and bishops will officially entrust Russia into the hands of the Mother of God so that that Russia can peacefully abide as a Catholic country under Rome. Hopefully, the prayer of Consecration will be disclosed to Church at large in the time ahead.
We only pray that the Consecration isn’t used as a political tool to ‘tie the knot’ with Moscow, because if the Consecration turns out to be an ecumenical knot-tying ceremony aimed at strengthening the 1962 Moscow-Vatican Agreement, God’s patience will be exhausted. A pseudo-consecration would hasten ‘the annihilation of nations’ prophesied by Our Lady at Fatima.
Hopefully, Pope Benedict XVI, the former ruling bishop of Rome can play a key part in the upcoming solemnity since his participation could be what makes the difference for the Church and the world.
1. The Consecration indeed should include the Ukraine for while Ukraine now has its own political boundaries it was formerly part of the Russian Empire and is presently the focal point of Russia’s attack.
