In truth Russia is a Christian country now. Both the Catholic and Orthodox Churches are part of the family tree of the Christian.

Consecration was done by Blessed John Paul II in 1984. The subject is now CLOSED.

Closed to some of you! Tell me please what all churches are included in your "Christian family tree"?

What about this part, “and a period of peace will be granted to mankind”?

Did I blink and miss it? Please tell me when that period was and how long did it last.

I’m sure the Blessed Mother wasn’t teasing us; but somehow I’m missing what you and others claim to have been accomplished. Is the “period of peace” over already? It must be if the Pope is calling for a prayer for peace now.

Two years later, this evasive approach was taken again when the Holy Father once more consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in a ceremony before 250,000 people in Rome in March of 1984. But this time, the Pope made his position clearer.

In a departure from his prepared text, he asked Our Lady of Fatima to "enlighten especially the peoples of which You Yourself are awaiting our consecration and confiding." The Pope thus publicly acknowledged that the consecration requested by Our Lady had still not been performed.

These words were included in an official report of the event in L’Osservatore Romano on March 26, 1984. A similar report appeared the next day in the Italian bishops’ newspaper Avvenire, describing the Pope praying in St. Peter’s several hours after the consecration ceremony, asking Our Lady to bless "those peoples for whom You Yourself are awaiting our act of consecration and entrusting."

Case Opened!
