The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” These were the words of Our Lady to the shepherd children of Fatima more than a hundred years ago. (Jheng Prado.RCAM-AOC)

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” These were the words of Our Lady to the shepherd children of Fatima more than a hundred years ago. (Jheng Prado.RCAM-AOC)

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.

The Blessed Mother on July 13, 1917, has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart. She said, “If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!” These were the words of Our Lady to the shepherd children of Fatima more than a hundred years ago. (Jheng Prado.RCAM-AOC)

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines announced on Tuesday that Philippine bishops will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

According to Msgr. Bernardo Pantin, CBCP Secretary-General, Philippine bishops will also hold the act of consecration in their respective dioceses on the same day.

According to the Vatican’s translation of the messages of Fatima, when Mary appeared to the three shepherd children in Fatima in 1917, she told them, “God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved, and there will be peace.”

The Fatima apparitions of 1917 are among the popular Marian apparitions of the Catholic Church, wherein three secrets were revealed by Mary through the appearances.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI, if people continued to offend God and if Russia was not consecrated to her Immaculate Heart.

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.

Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

His Holiness Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on Friday, March 25, 2022, Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord, the Vatican announced on Tuesday.

The consecration will take place during the celebration of Penance which the Holy Father will preside at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, at 5 p.m.

The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni said in a statement that on the same day, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will also perform a similar consecration at the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.

According to the Vatican News, several bishops in Ukraine welcomed and expressed their gratitude to the desire of the Holy Father to consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

“This is a spiritual act long awaited by the people of Ukraine. Since the beginning of Russian aggression in 2014, Ukrainian Catholics have been urgently requesting this Act to prevent the worsening of the war and the dangers coming from Russia,” said Major Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

The Vatican also said that the Bishops of Ukraine are “urging the country’s faithful to prepare for the Act of Consecration with a prayer novena beginning on 17 March,” with the hope that it will bring them peace and that the war will end soon.

On July 13, 1917, in Fatima, the Blessed Mother has asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

After the Fatima apparitions, there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Pope Pius XII, on 31 October 1942, consecrated the whole world. On July 7, 1952, he consecrated the peoples of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Apostolic Letter Sacro vergente anno, according to the Vatican News. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)

Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help.

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) released on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, the prayer for the upcoming National Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

According to CBCP news article, the prayer that was shortened and directed to the country’s present context was adopted from the “official act of consecration” written by St. John Paul II himself for the Feast of the Annunciation in 1985.

The prayer, the CBCP News added was meant to be offered by the pope himself and all the bishops of the Church.

During that time, Cardinal Jaime Sin of Manila and then Archbishop Ricardo Vidal took an official part in the solemn act of offering in the Vatican. March 25 of that year, Archbishop Vidal and 27 others were elevated to the College of Cardinals.

In January 2014, during the 108th plenary of CBCP, the bishops approved that the consecration to the Immaculate Heart Mary will be renewed every year on her feast day in every diocese until the Jubilee Year of 2021.

The national consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be done on June 12 and will be led by Archbishop Romulo Valles, President of CBCP.

The event will be live-streamed from the Davao Cathedral at 9:45 a.m. At 10 am, the Mass in honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will be held in other parish churches, including the National Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima in Valenzuela City.
