Cardinal Burke Calls For The Correct Consecration Of Russia To Mary's Immaculate Heart

On Tuesday Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes (of Germany) confirmed the statement of Father Amorth (Vatican exorcist) that Pope John Paul II did not consecrate Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart in 1984.  Apparently he wanted to do so, but allowed himself to be persuaded by Vatican diplomats not to mention Russia for fear of causing political conflicts.

We all know that he consecrated "the world" to Mary's Immaculate Heart.  While that consecration was undoubtedly beneficial in and of itself, it was not done in the manner that Our Lady specified to the Fatima seers in 1917.  The LifeSiteNews posts reminds us that the Fatima apparitions are not part and parcel of the Deposit of Faith and one may be a true Catholic and not believe them.  That is true enough.  However, one either believes that the Blessed Mother spoke at that time, or they don't.  If they do believe that she spoke, then why the reticence about taking her at her word?  Why demure in complete obedience?  Why place the pleadings of Vatican officials over the requests of the Mother of God?

Today at the Rome Life Forum, Cardinal Burke called for the consecration of Russia to Mary's Immaculate Heart per her exact specifications.  He too stated that the consecration in 1984 was not in accord with Our Lady of Fatima's specifications.  His exact quote is: "Certainly, Pope Saint John Paul II consecrated the world, including Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984.  But, today, once again, we hear the call of Our Lady of Fatima to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, in accord with her explicit instruction."

There are those good Catholics who insist on pretending that the Fatima requirements were satisfied in 1984.  They probably are loathe to believe that Pope St John Paul II might have faltered in being completely obedient to Our Lady of Fatima.  They fail to consider that while he was still on this earth, he was subject to his own sin-weakened human nature, as are we all.  However some others who don't have any intention to honor God have their own reasons.  One individual on Facebook believes that these faux-katholycs fear a large-scale return to Faith and Tradition if Russia is properly consecrated.  I think he's onto something, especially in light of the bad-mouthing that Cardinal Burke received from Cardinal Maradiaga (head of the pope's "gang of nine" because of his dissidence).

Cardinal Burke went on to list six requests of Our Lady of Fatima.  Five of them we should be doing regularly ourselves.  The sixth one has to do with the consecration of Russia.  Let us join the cardinal in acknowledging that the consecration to Russia has been inexcusably delayed and pray and call for its immediate fulfillment.


  1. We cannot thank the Dear Lord enough for this wonderfully faithful man! I agree with him totally that the consecration has not been done according to the specifications of Our Blessed Mother. She not only called on the Pope to consecrate 'Russia' explicitly, but for ALL of the Bishops of the Church to join him at the same time in doing so! As far as I know this part has NEVER been done. It seems a little suspicious to me that the consecration has been done a few times since then as well. If they were so convinced it was done correctly by John Paul, why the need to do it over again? Even Francis has performed the 'consecration' of course of the 'world' to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Seems it's getting to be routine that all incoming Popes perform the consecration. I guess for good measure:) Once it's done correctly we will KNOW it has satisfied Heaven, and we will see the effects. As to whether THIS POPE will cooperate and do it the right way, I have my doubts. The specifications are too 'rigid' for him, number one, and number two, I don't think his faith is up to the task. Deep down, he probably thinks it's all hogwash.


  2. So sad that we have been waiting for 100 years for the fulfillment of Mary's promises because of a faltering hierarchy.

  3. What TLM said. Love that Cardinal Burke--what a holy, faithful, and humble servant of God and souls.

  4. The problem is we don't have a pope to do this. It's too late.
