Consecration (1984-03-25) Fatima. Russia Consecration of Russia

Consecration of the world to Immaculate Heart of Mary (1984-03-25)

On March 25, 1984, on the square of Saint Peter’s Basilica, before the statue of Our Lady brought over expressly from the Capelinha, Pope John Paul II pronounced this act of offering.

The Pope read it out, adding the following supplication: «Enlighten especially those peoples on behalf of whom You are awaiting our consecration and offering

And in the evening, during the farewell ceremony to Our Lady, he declared that he had wanted to consecrate «all the peoples, particularly those who have such great need of this consecration, those peoples for whom you yourself [the Virgin Mary] await our act of consecration, the act that entrusts them to you». In expressing himself thus, the Pope was acknowledging that the Virgin Mary was still awaiting the requested consecration. He was conceding that his act of offering had not responded to Heaven’s request.


After the act of offering on March 25, 1984, the principal Fatima experts publicly stated that the collegial consecration of Russia had still not been done. Father Messias Dias Coelho had announced in Mensagem de Fatima, on the eve of March 25, 1984: «Consecration of Russia: will not happen this time either.» Then, on the day after the act of offering, the same Dias Coelho wrote under the pseudonym F. Stein: «We have not achieved the end proposed by the Mother of God», for «the prophecy of conversion was restricted to one country, Russia» and, «in the economy of the Fatima message», the consecration of Russia represents «the efficacious and proximate sign» of the conversion of that nation. In no way, therefore, could a consecration of the world be «the signal» of Russia’s conversion!

Father Antonio Maria Martins made a similar affirmation. In September 1986, at the Fatima Symposium, he whispered in the Abbé Laurentin’s ear that John Paul II would have a providential opportunity in 1988, with the millennial celebration of Russia’s baptism, to effect the consecration of that nation.

Alas, John Paul II’s heart was in the thrall of other passions, and his mind was wholly absorbed in the realisation of his own great interfaith, globalist and millenarist project. To those who reminded him of Our Lady’s request, he would reply, not without some irritation, «The consecration is done. We renew it every morning.» This was his reply to the Abbé Caillon in April 1985, and to the Superior of the Carmel of the Via del Casaletto, in Rome, on January 26, 1987.

Furthermore, the hierarchy continued to ignore the request of Pontevedra, which is connected to that of Tuy. Father Simonin, who would never allow himself the slightest criticism of H.H. Pope John Paul II, declared himself astonished at this in 1985: «As well as the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Sister Lucy requested, on behalf of the Virgin, the Holy Father’s endorsement of the devotion of the First Saturdays. This, it must be said, has not been fulfilled by any Pope to date.»

The Act of Offering of March 25, 1984

Excerpts from Act of Offering of the World,
pronounced by Pope John Paul II in Rome, on March 25, 1984


… O Mother of individuals and peoples, you who know all their sufferings and their hopes, you who have a mother’s awareness of all the struggles between good and evil, between light and darkness, which afflict the modern world, accept the cry which we, moved by the Holy Spirit, address directly to your Heart.
Embrace, with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord, this human world of ours, which we entrust and consecrate to you, for we are full of concern for the earthly and eternal destiny of individuals and peoples.

In a special way we entrust and consecrate to you those individuals and nations which particularly need to be thus entrusted and consecrated.

“We fly to your patronage, O Holy Mother of God.” Despise not our petitions in our necessities.


Mother of the Church!
Enlighten the People of God along the paths of faith, hope and love!
Enlighten especially the peoples whose consecration and entrustment by us you are awaiting.
Help us to live in the truth of the consecration of Christ for the entire human family of the modern world.

In entrusting to you, O Mother, the world, all individuals and peoples, we also entrust to you this very consecration of the world, placing it in your motherly Heart.

The Act of Offering of March 25, 1984

The Pope quite timidly attempted to consecrate

…in 1984 the Pope quite timidly attempted to consecrate Russia in Saint Peter’s Square. I was there, just a few feet away from him, because I was the organizer of the event in Saint Peter’s Square! It was March 25, 1984 and the Pope had the statue of Our Lady of Fatima come over from Fatima; it’s the statue that usually stays in the huge plaza of the Sanctuary, in Fatima, but for that occasion he wanted the statue there.

Kneeling in front of that statue, he attempted the consecration, but all around him were some politicians who told him “you can’t name Russia, you can’t!” And he asked “Can I name it?” And they said: “No, no, no!”

… requested namely the Consecration of Russia

On May 12, 1982, the day before the attempted 1982 consecration, the Vatican's own L'Osservatore Romano published an interview of Sister Lucy by Father Umberto Maria Pasquale, a Salesian priest, during which she told Father Umberto that Our Lady had never requested the Consecration of the world, but only the Consecration of Russia:

"At a certain moment I said to her: Sister, I should like to ask you a question. If you cannot answer me, let it be. But if you can answer it, I would be most grateful to you … Has Our Lady ever spoken to you about the Consecration of the world to Her Immaculate Heart?"

"No, Father Umberto! Never! At the Cova da Iria in 1917 Our Lady had promised: I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia … In 1929, at Tuy, as She had promised, Our Lady came back to tell me that the moment had come to ask the Holy Father for the Consecration of that country [Russia]."
