Our Lady of Fatima

In her 1917 Marian apparitions, Our Lady of Fatima asked 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 will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church," Our Lady said.

While the Holy See said Pope Saint John Paul II fulfilled this request in 1984, the Pope will renew this consecration on Friday, March 25, 2022, due to the ongoing war in Ukraine.

Pope Francis invited all bishops throughout the world to join him in the consecration. He also asked the bishops to invite all priests, religious, and the faithful to participate in the consecration that day, in fraternal union. Previously, a novena leading up to the consecration was encouraged.

The Pope will consecrate Russia, Ukraine, and all humanity to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at 6:30 p.m. Rome time on Friday, March 25, 2022. Here’s the letter from Pope Francis to all bishops. The Vatican also released the full text of the prayer for the upcoming consecration.
