The Pope Is Consecrating His Papacy
to Our Lady of Fatima;
Now Is the Time to Rally Around
Our Holy Father
May 8, 2013
On May 13, on the 96th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, the bishops of Portugal will perform a solemn act of consecration requested by our Holy Father. Within days of his election, Pope Francis himself asked Cardinal Policarpo of Lisbon to consecrate his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima. His Eminence asked the bishops to participate. Now, for the first time in history, a Pope is placing his pontificate under the protection of Our Lady of Fatima!
What does this mean? It means we have a Pope who realizes the crucial role of the Message of Fatima for the Church today! It means we have a Pope who has completely and irrevocably repudiated all the decades-long attempts made by key members of the hierarchy to silence and bury the Message of Fatima — and this apostolate!
Above all, it means that you and I must support the Holy Father in every way we can. We have a Pope not only devoted to Our Lady, but to Our Lady of Fatima! This is the Pope who may be ready to do, at long last, what none of his predecessors have done: command the bishops of the world to join him in consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
We must pray for the Holy Father. There are many forces ranged against him and the consecration. And we must let our bishops know that the time has come for each one of them to fulfill Our Lady of Fatima’s request.
We must let the bishops know we want them
perform the consecration!
The bishops must then let the Pope know they
ready to perform the consecration!
So I ask each and every one of you to say three Hail Marys for the May 13 consecration. Then forward this e-letter to all your friends, asking them to say three Hail Marys and to forward it to all their friends. You can help start a grass-roots prayer crusade. And let your bishop know the time has come for him to join the Holy Father in doing the only thing that will avert the “annihilation of nations” Our Lady warned us about and the only thing that will restore order and sanctity in our suffering Church.
Please, do all you can now! The time to act is now! Write or call your bishop now! Our Lady’s Apostolate has already written to all the bishops. See the letter we sent them (click here) asking them to join the bishops of Portugal on May 13 in consecrating Pope Francis’ pontificate to Our Lady of Fatima. Ask your bishop to join the bishops of Portugal in this act. We also wrote to 40,000+ priests; see the letter we sent them (click here) asking them to join in this consecration also. We have sent them the enclosed suggested prayer (click here to see prayer). Let your bishop know you are counting on him to participate in this wonderful act of consecration.
And if you are able, please attend or support our upcoming conference: “Fatima: The Path to Peace!” For information on this and all the works of Our Lady’s Apostolate, see: archive.fatima.org.
