Fatima. Revelation at Tuy (1930-05-??)
In the beginning of 1930 by means of an interior communication Our Lord informed Sister Lucia that the two requests for the consecration of Russia and the devotion of reparation were to be addressed, together, to the Holy Father himself.
From a letter of Sr. Lucia to Fr. Goncalves (May 29, 1930)
She wrote her confessor, Fr. Goncalves, about this Revelation the following:
THE REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF THE REPARATORY DEVOTION. It seems that Our Good Lord deep in my heart, urges me to ask the Holy Father’s approval for the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary that God Himself and the Blessed Virgin asked for in 1925.
And the Most Blessed Virgin promises the souls of those who seek to make reparation to Her in this way that She will assist them at the hour of their death with all the graces necessary for their salvation.
This devotion consists of the following: receiving Holy Communion on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, saying the Rosary and keeping Our Lady company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, and going to confession with the same purpose. The confession can be made another day.
THE REQUEST FOR THE CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA. If I am not mistaken, the good Lord promises to put an end to the persecution in Russia, if the Holy Father himself deigns to make a solemn and public act of reparation and consecration of Russia to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, as well as ordering all the bishops of the Catholic world to do the same, and if the Holy Father promises that, upon the end of this persecution, he will approve and recommend the practice of the reparatory devotion already described.
