Supporters of the apparition that appeared in Fatima have a plan for Russia. Notice the following:

Our Lady of Fatima shrines asked to join in prayer for conversion of Russia

Our Lady of Fatima shrines worldwide are being asked to unite in prayer for the conversion of Russia on Sunday.

The appeal was made by Father Andrzej Draws, rector of the Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Fatima in Krisovychi, western Ukraine, following the full-scale Russian invasion of the country on Feb. 24.

He has invited all shrines in honor of Our Lady of Fatima to unite in prayer for the conversion of Russia on March 13.

The appeal comes after Ukraine’s Latin Rite Catholic bishops asked Pope Francis to consecrate Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  …

During the Fatima apparitions in 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary revealed three secrets.

The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, and a prediction of another war that would start during the reign of Pius XI if people continued to offend God and Russia was not consecrated to Mary’s Immaculate Heart.

Sister Lucia, one of the three Fatima visionaries, recalled in her memoirs that Our Lady asked for “the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays” to prevent a second world war.

She said that Mary told her: “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.” 03/11/22 https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/250639/ukraine-war-our-lady-of-fatima-shrines-worldwide-asked-to-join-in-prayer-for-conversion-of-russia

Various pontiffs have done a ‘version’ of what the apparition, which DID NOT identify itself as Jesus’ mother Mary, reportedly asked for.

For example, in October 2013, Pope Francis decided to consecrate the world to the so-called ‘immaculate heart of Mary.’

A similar type of consecration was performed by the late John Paul II. Various Fatimists have insisted that no pontiff followed the precise instructions of the Fatima apparition (the Vatican officially disagrees), hence there are wars and other problems.

Pope Francis did his ‘consecration’ in front of a statue from Fatima, Portugal. My wife and I have seen this particular statue and it is shown above at the beginning of this post. While millions have bowed down before and/or prayed to this statue, I will mention again to all who will hear that the statue IS NOT DRESSED like what the three children at Fatima (Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta) claimed the ‘Lady of Fatima’ looked like in 1917. What they described was a young female with a short skirt as shown at the beginning of this post. There is no possible way that Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared in Fatima, Portugal before Lucia, Francisco, and Jacinta in 1917.

The #105 edition of the Fatima Crusader put out by The Fatima Center has the following from its leader Priest Nicholas Gruner (bolding in source):

I was encouraged that in the former Archdiocese of our new Pope there exists a sanctuary and two parishes dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is especially practised on the first Saturday of every month. So the words and requests of Our Lady of Fatima would not be foreign to him.

The other thing I had in my background was a prophecy from Antonio Ruffini, who has a prophetic gift. He told me in January, 1990 that this Pope – he didn’t name him – but he just said “the successor of the successor of John Paul II would be the one to do the consecration.” If Ruffini is not mistaken, then it’s a good sign. We may finally have a Pope who is going to do the consecration of Russia. Prudently though, we have to wait and see whether or not Ruffini completely understood whatever message he got on that.

What this means is that a Roman Catholic “prophet” told Priest Gruner that it would be possibly Pope 112 on the Malachy prophecy list that would bring devotion to Mary to the world, peace, and prosperity. Here is some of what Priest Gruner believes will happen if that ‘consecration’ is done:

How do we avert the wars and financial turmoil that are plunging the nations into chaos?

Our Lady of Fatima promised that if the Pope and bishops of the Catholic Church, in unison, consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart, a period of world peace would follow, ushered in by the conversion of Russia. That consecration has yet to be performed, but Pope Francis has asked that his papacy be consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima, so the prospects for the consecration are now favorable.

The Fatima Center believed that Fatima ‘Mary’ is the answer to humanity, not really Jesus. Others also seem to share this improper view:
Mary Alone Can Give Us Life?

Pope Francis asked the Virgin Mary to “grant us the health that She alone can give us, to be always signs and instruments of life.” His message was given when he officially took possession of the Papal Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome, which is the oldest Marian Shrine in the West. He said, “Mary is mother, and a mother concerns herself above all with the health of her children, she knows how to care for it with great and tender love…our Lady protects our health.”

The above is blasphemous. Jesus is “the way, the truth, the life” (John 14:6), not Mary.

Anyway, the Fatimists have claimed that since John Paul II’s consecration was to the whole world and not specific to Russia that he did not do what the ‘Lady of Fatima’ wanted. They feel that if Pope Francis really does consecrate Russia to the ‘immaculate heart’ essentially a new age of peace and prosperity will come to the world. They are not looking for the Kingdom of God, but believe that ‘Mary’ will bring in a time for the Great Monarch (who is likely the one warned about as the final King of the North in Daniel 11) and Angelic Pastor who does miracles (who is likely the one warned about as the two-horned Beast of Revelation 13) will to reign.

Previous pontiffs have been less intrigued with Fatima (though John Paul II’s interest increased after an assassination attempt)–yet the Fatimists believe this is the ONLY SOLUTION to the problems now:

Our Lady of Fatima said some extraordinary things…we can certainly say that not enough people (including the Popes, Cardinals, bishops, and priests) have given Her Message as much serious consideration and response as it demands and deserves. (Gruner N, Priest. Why Fatima: The Path to Peace! Is Critically Important. Fatima Crusader, 106, Summer, 2013, p. 2)

Our Lady of Fatima
Our Only Solution

Only Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima can help us, as She Herself told us. We must do precisely what She requests…How is it that most previous Popes and many bishops today have failed to understand this? Do they understand that there is no other solution to our problems?…

It is too early to say if Pope Francis will follow the imprudent example of his six predecessors who thought that they knew better than the Virgin Most Prudent. But nevertheless, it is certain that he could use all the help we can give him to fulfill Our Lady’s request. (Gruner N, Priest. Why Fatima: The Path to Peace! Is Critically Important. Fatima Crusader, 106, Summer, 2013, pp. 45-46)

The history of the past half-century is a tragic catalogue of nearly 1000 bloody armed conflicts…the obvious lessons of recent history underscore the Blessed Virgin’s words: Only She can help us…

Our ONE and ONLY hope is the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary…

We have an obligation, therefore, to believe and obey Her Message – to heed Our Lady’s request for the Consecration of Russia by the Pope in union with all the bishops of the world. “Without that Consecration, Russia cannot be converted, nor can the world have peace.” (Hanisch J. Has World War III Begun? Fatima Crusader, 106, Summer, 2013, pp. 55, 56, 62)

Fatima’s apparition is NOT the “only solution,” or any real solution at all.

The world needs conversion and the Kingdom of God, not a distorted view of Mary.

What will Pope Francis do?

Probably the main reason that no pontiff has called for all the Roman Catholic bishops to join him to ‘consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary so it will be converted,’ is to not insult the government and people of Russia. Currently, the Russians are mainly Russian Orthodox Catholic, which Rome considers to be a true church. Additionally, since Pope Francis wants ecumenical unity with the Russian Orthodox, he realizes that its Patriarch Kirill would likely see such a consecration for Russia’s ‘conversion’ as a severe insult.

It remains my view that the use of ‘Mary’ will be an ecumenical tool that Rome will want to use, hence it is not likely that Pope Francis will make the consecration as originally called for.

Even if he does, this will not be good. Neither for the Vatican (Revelation 17:15-17) nor for the rest of the world (Revelation 18).
