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.»
