Our Thanks, Our Pledge and Our Formal Petition
Most Holy Father,
We thank Your Holiness for all you have done to fulfill Our Lady of Fatima's requests. We fully agree with your public statement given at Fatima that "The Message of Fatima imposes an obligation on the Church."
This is indeed so true, especially because charity demands that we all work for world peace, particularly at this time when peace is so threatened. Your Holiness, you yourself have eloquently spoken many times about the dangers to peace around the world and our obligations to do all we can to achieve world peace.
Our Lady of Fatima made it very clear to all that the absolutely only way for true and lasting peace is for Your Holiness and all the Catholic bishops of the world on the same day and at the same time to pronounce solemnly and publicly the prayer of Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
We know that Your Holiness has tried to achieve this but that you have run into strong opposition from a few persons in your own household who think they know better than the Mother of God about how to achieve true peace.
At Fatima, on May 13, 1982, and at Rome on March 25, 1984, you wanted to fulfill Our Lady's most solemn request for the Consecration of Russia. But as you indicated after both those attempts, you knew that you and your brother bishops had not yet complied with Our Lady of Fatima's specific requests.
Your Holiness's public statements published in your own official newspaper at the time clearly indicate your awareness of these unfortunate circumstances. Despite these facts, your own enemies all the while claiming loyalty to you, publicly omit, ignore and distort your own words as part of their campaign to do all they can to impede your long desired act of obedience to Our Lady of Fatima.
In order for Your Holiness to overcome these tactics and the disinformation that people in your own household feed you, you need to know of the grass-roots support you have.
|I realize the Holy Father needs our prayers and moral support, therefore I have placed my signature below.|
Thus, we the undersigned, faithfully and prayerfully show our moral 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 solemnly and publicly consecrate Russia to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart together with Your Holiness.
Your Holiness is fully justified by the Dogmatic teaching of Vatican Council I in engaging your supreme Apostolic authority in this matter.
Holy Father, Our Lady of Fatima predicted if Her requests were not heeded in time, Your Holiness will have more to suffer, that Militant Atheism headquartered in Russia will overcome, enslave and chastise the world, and that the annihilation of various nations will take place.
Most Holy Father, we love you, we pray for you. In view of the foregoing we humbly beg you and formally petition you; to soon order all the Catholic bishops to join you on one specific date - in solemnly and publicly consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as commanded by God Himself through the Message of Our Lady of Fatima.
