“This article is taken from an appendix in the new book by Bill Salus entitled, Apocalypse Road, Revelation for the Final Generation.
In 1917, after three years of nations raging against nations in World War 1, the apparition of Mary came to Fatima, Portugal to deliver a message. “Our Lady of Fatima,” as she has ever since been called, spoke of heaven, hell and the sins of man which were being penalized by war. Many Catholics believe that in her message she provided the means to the end of World War 1 through her divine intervention. World War 1 ended about a year later on November 18, 1918.
“Continue to recite the Rosary every day to our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace in the world and the end of the war, (World War I), because only She, (Our Lady of Fatima), will be able to aid you.”
During that same sequence of messages, the apparition spoke about the nation of Russia.
“I (the apparition) shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia. … 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. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.” (1)
Twelve years later on June 13, 1929, Our Lady of Fatima made a follow up request to visionary Sister Lucy, who at the time was living at Tuy, Spain. This communication provided specific instructions about the manner in which Russia was to be consecrated.
“The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make, and to order that in union with him and at the same time, all the bishops of the world make the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart.”
“Consecration” is the act of separating something away from its current condition for a sacred use. In this case Russia is to be consecrated. After receiving this message from the apparition, Sister Lucy eventually delivered these instructions below to the Pope.
1. Russia must be specifically mentioned as the object of consecration.
2. The Pope must join with the world bishops in a public ceremony for the consecration.
The consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary alludes to the abandonment of atheism, paganism, heresy or schism and the acceptance of the Catholic Faith and the Church established by Christ. (2)
There is a relatively rigorous debate within Catholic circles as to whether or not Russia has been officially consecrated. The general consensus is no not yet. Then the question arises as to why it hasn’t happened yet? The answer to this question gets complicated due to the staggered timing of the messages and the generally confusing and secretive nature of the predictions concerning Russia. In the end analysis, it appears as though Our Lady at Fatima may have had an ulterior motive looming behind her foretellings of Russia’s future.
CAVEAT: All of the above is a supernatural reality. Most of what is below is spiritual speculation. However, it is provided because it finds potential relevance to the harlot world religion, which is a topic of the Apocalypse Road book.
