Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)

The Archdiocese of Manila announced on Saturday, March 19, 2022, the Solemnity of St. Joseph that they will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

“We will gather on Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM at the Manila Cathedral as a presbyterium with the religious and the lay people. The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop,” Fr. Carmelo Arada, RCAM Vice-Chancellor said in a circular released to all clergy, religious men and women and lay collaborators in the archdiocese.

Father Arada added that ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials will also be present during the event.

Also, according to the circular, “Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time).

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)

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

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.

RE: CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA AND UKRAINE TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY

Dear Monsignori, Fathers, Brothers and Sisters:

Greetings of peace in the Lord!

The Holy Father, Pope Francis, expressed his desire that all local Churches join him in the Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We will gather on Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM at the Manila Cathedral as a presbyterium with the religious and the lay people. The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop. We will be joined by the ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials.

Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time). We leave it to the discretion of the Parish Priests to decide on the details of the celebration in their communities. A circular will be issued as soon as the prayer is available.

“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. Let us encourage our parishioners to join us in offering our prayers and sacrifices as an act of solidarity to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.

Thank you very much. Let us unite ourselves in prayer.

Sincerely in the Lord Jesus,

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

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)

The Archdiocese of Manila announced on Saturday, March 19, 2022, the Solemnity of St. Joseph that they will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

“We will gather on Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM at the Manila Cathedral as a presbyterium with the religious and the lay people. The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop,” Fr. Carmelo Arada, RCAM Vice-Chancellor said in a circular released to all clergy, religious men and women and lay collaborators in the archdiocese.

Father Arada added that ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials will also be present during the event.

Also, according to the circular, “Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time).

The Philippine Bishops also announced that they will also hold a similar consecration on the same day.

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)

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

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

We leave it to the discretion of the Parish Priests to decide on the details of the celebration in their communities. A circular will be issued as soon as the prayer is available.

“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. Let us encourage our parishioners to join us in offering our prayers and sacrifices as an act of solidarity to our brothers and sisters in Ukraine.

Thank you very much. Let us unite ourselves in prayer.

Sincerely in the Lord Jesus,

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

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)

The Archdiocese of Manila announced on Saturday, March 19, 2022, the Solemnity of St. Joseph that they will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

“We will gather on Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM at the Manila Cathedral as a presbyterium with the religious and the lay people. The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop,” Fr. Carmelo Arada, RCAM Vice-Chancellor said in a circular released to all clergy, religious men and women and lay collaborators in the archdiocese.

Father Arada added that ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials will also be present during the event.

Also, according to the circular, “Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time).

On March 15, the Vatican announced that the Holy Father Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord at the St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome, at 5 p.m. local time.

The Philippine Bishops also announced that they will also hold a similar consecration on the same day.

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)

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

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)

The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop,” Fr. Carmelo Arada, RCAM Vice-Chancellor said in a circular released to all clergy, religious men and women and lay collaborators in the archdiocese.

Father Arada added that ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials will also be present during the event.

Also, according to the circular, “Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time).

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)

The Archdiocese of Manila announced on Saturday, March 19, 2022, the Solemnity of St. Joseph that they will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.

“We will gather on Friday, March 25, 6:00 PM at the Manila Cathedral as a presbyterium with the religious and the lay people. The Holy Father requests that all priests participate and concelebrate with the bishop,” Fr. Carmelo Arada, RCAM Vice-Chancellor said in a circular released to all clergy, religious men and women and lay collaborators in the archdiocese.

Father Arada added that ambassadors of the different nations and some government officials will also be present during the event.

Also, according to the circular, “Parishes in the Archdiocese of Manila are encouraged to organize a Eucharistic Celebration or a Celebration of the Word wherein the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart will be prayed preferably at the same time or as close as possible to the time when the Holy Father will make the act of consecration which will be at around 12 midnight Philippine time (March 25, 5:00 PM Rome time).

On March 15, the Vatican announced that the Holy Father Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord at the St. Peter’s Basilica, Rome, at 5 p.m. local time.

The Philippine Bishops also announced that they will also hold a similar consecration on the same day.

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)

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

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.

Pope Francis has expressed his hope for the end of war and brutality of Russia and Ukraine towards its citizens.

The Pope is describing the current situation at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant in Ukraine, the largest in Europe, besieged by Russia.

“I hope that concrete steps will be taken to end the war and avert the risk of a nuclear disaster in Zaporizhzhia,” part of the message of Pope Francis.

Pope Francis emphasized that nothing good can come from war but the destruction of society, that innocent individuals are suffering from the brutality and those upholding the right to live and human dignity.

“The innocent pay for the war! The innocent! Let’s think about this reality and let’s tell each other: war is madness. And those who profit from war and the arms trade are criminals who kill humanity,” according to the Pope.

The Pope is asking once again for prayers for world peace especially in countries with war such as Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar and others.

“Let us think of Ukraine and Russia. Both countries are consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May you, as a Mother, turn your gaze to these two beloved countries: see Ukraine, see Russia and bring us peace! We need peace!” Pope Francis said.

For more than six months of war due to the invasion of Russia in Ukraine about 15,000 people have died while about ten million fled the country to safety. (Mio Angelo Hermoso/SOCOM-Vicariate of Santa Clara de Montefalco)
