What is the consecration?

“In the apparition of 13 July 1917 in Fatima, Our Lady had asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart… After the apparitions of Fatima there were various acts of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary… And now this year, on March 25, Pope Francis will consecrate Russia together with Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in communion with bishops from all over the world.”

Our Mother revealed to the children at Fatima that her Immaculate Heart will triumph. We don’t know exactly how that will happen, but it must begin with each one of us, in our own hearts, our own conversion from sin, our own repentance, our own prayer and sacrifices, just as Mary asked for these things from the shepherd children in their own lives… So that’s Fatima; that’s the Gospel: penance, conversion and growth in faith, hope and love… That’s the way to salvation.
