A PLEA TO OUR HOLY FATHER
Most Holy Father,
We wish to thank you for all you have done so far to bring about the act of collegial consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart. At Fatima on May 13, 1982, and at Rome March 25,1984, we realize you felt unable to fulfill at that time the requirement of Our Lady of Fatima for this collegial act.
We note with gratitude that Your Holiness put Fatima on the top of the ecclesial agenda by stating in your homily at Fatima, that "the evangelical call to repentance and conversion" in the message of Our Lady of Fatima "is still more relevant than it was 65 years ago ... still more urgent."
We wish to assure Your Holiness of our prayerful and moral support of your efforts to bring about the collegial act of consecration of Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.
We know that by the will of God, you as Pope, have primacy of jurisdiction over the whole Church. That is that you have the right to command each and every bishop and priest and religious and lay person in the Catholic Church directly and immediately. This authority not only pertains to matters of faith and morals but also in matters that pertain to the discipline and good government of the Church throughout the world as the First Vatican Council has solemnly defined.
We know that the errors of materialism, state atheism and secular humanism will continue to spread throughout the world and among very many members (even among clergy) of the Catholic Church until the collegial act of consecration of Russia is made according to the requests of Our Lady of Fatima.
Thus, we the undersigned, faithfully show our full support for you when you decide to command, and oblige in conscience with the most serious of obligations possible, your brother Bishops throughout the world to collegially consecrate Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.
We know that Your Holiness is fully justified in engaging your supreme apostolic authority in this matter.
We hope and pray to Our Lady and we humbly beseech Your Holiness to make this collegial act of consecration take place soon.
Otherwise, Holy Father, we fear that Your Holiness will have more to suffer, that Militant Atheism headquartered in Russia will overcome the world, and that the annihilation of various nations will take place as Our Lady of Fatima predicted if Her requests were not heeded in time.
