On Borrowed Time

Every intellectual fraud is eventually exposed!

On July 13, 1917, Our Lady of Fatima told the three children-seers (as part of the Great Secret which She committed to them,

“[God] is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, hunger, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she [Russia] 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.”

Twelve years later, on June 13, 1929, Our Lady kept Her Promise to return to announce Heaven’s formal request for the Consecration of Russia, in no uncertain terms:

“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, in union with all the bishops of the world, the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.”

But this command from Heaven fell on deaf ears, and years began to go by without any progress toward its fulfillment.

In a letter of May 1936 to her confessor, Sister Lucy wrote concerning this delay:

“Intimately I have spoken to Our Lord about the subject, and recently I asked Him why He would not convert Russia without the Holy Father making that Consecration.” The Lord answered, “Because I want My whole Church to acknowledge that Consecration as a Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that it may extend its cult later on and put the Devotion to this Immaculate Heart alongside the Devotion to My Sacred Heart.”

There is no other means at our disposal to stop the world’s descent into apostasy and chaos than that given to us by Our Lady of Fatima.

In 1942, Pope Pius XII was prevailed upon to make a consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This was not done in response to the Fatima request and did not correspond to the stipulations given by Our Lady of Fatima. Ten years later, in an apparition to Sister Lucy in May 1952, Our Lady said:

“Make it known to the Holy Father that I still await the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart. Without that Consecration, Russia cannot be converted, nor can the world have Peace.”

Any consecration to Our Lady can bring honor to Her Immaculate Heart and much-needed graces in our lives, but only the Consecration of Russia in the precise manner directed by Our Lady of Fatima can bring the definitive graces needed to prevent the continuance of the just chastisements that loom over us, namely persecutions, martyrdom, and the annihilation of whole nations.

In a revelation in August 1931, Our Lord made a frightening reference to the fate of the King of France, whom He had asked to consecrate France to His Sacred Heart, promising thereby to deliver France from its enemies. That request had been given through St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in 1689. Three successive kings of France chose to ignore Our Lord’s request, until 100 years later – to the day! – the French monarchy was definitively subverted and overthrown. King Louis XVI, who was reigning in 1789, had much to suffer at the hands of the revolutionaries – in humiliations, in prison, and finally on the scaffold of a guillotine. “Make it known to My ministers,” Our Lord told Sister Lucy in 1931, “that given they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My command [for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary], they will likewise follow him into misfortune.”

There will be a terrible price to pay for despising Heaven’s command for the Consecration of Russia.

Fast-forward to 1984, when Pope John-Paul II decided to make another consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. According to Our Lady’s requests given at Fatima? No. He decided instead to merely renew the consecration of the world made by Pope Pius XII in 1942 – the act which Our Lady Herself had already said could not bring about the promised conversion of Russia or peace for the world. Those miraculous graces will only be given to us when Her Fatima request is heeded.

Has any Pope ever actually fulfilled this request of the Queen of Heaven? IF IN DOUBT, READ THE NEWS.
