The most important benefit resulting from the Consecration of Russia, after the glory it will give God and the honor it will give to the Blessed Virgin, will be the salvation of souls. “Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mt. 6:33). Sister Lucy said, “My mission is not to indicate to the world the material punishments which will certainly happen if the world does not pray and do penance beforehand. No! My mission is to indicate to everyone the imminent danger we are in of losing our souls for all eternity if we remain obstinate in sin.”
In Her July 13, 1917 apparition to the three children, after showing them a vision of hell, Our Lady of Fatima explained: “You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save 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.”
Through the triumph of Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, which will accompany the Consecration of Russia, countless souls will be saved. Through this act will come the dramatic delivery of the world from the errors of Russia, and the great era of peace. The world will recognize this as the work of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Then, confronted with the boundless love and motherly care thus demonstrated, poor sinners will turn to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for help in their lives, and by their prayers and devotion to Her will obtain the necessary graces to convert themselves and their neighbors, and thus save many souls from hell.
The world will be dramatically different during the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. For one thing, the whole world will be converted to the Catholic Faith. Because man will still have a fallen nature, there will still be sin and struggle. However, unlike our present anti-Christian, anti-Catholic world – which actively works to pull the soul away from God – during the Triumph of Mary, Catholic governments, Catholic institutions and Catholic society will work together to draw the soul closer and closer to its Creator – the source and means of all grace – through the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The peace that will occur during Our Lady’s Triumph will be manifested in friendships, the family, the community, state, nation and the world; in government, finance, economics, trade, business and educational institutions (which will recognize and be conducted in accordance with the Social Kingship of Christ); in technology (which will be used to promote truth and justice, kindness and peace) and in the arts and entertainment (which will reflect the beauty and truth of God). Truth and justice will prevail throughout the world. Each person’s entire life will revolve around Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary, and will be expressed in their believing and living the Catholic Faith, and in their Catholic public and private prayers. Thus, in the midst of these fruits of Our Lady’s promised Triumph, souls will be better able to live a truly Catholic life. Then, as Our Lady told us, “many souls will be saved and there will be peace.”
