In the context of the current violent aggression against Ukraine, Pope Francis spoke after the Marian Angelus prayer on Sunday, March 20, 2022, and invited us to join him on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord, next Friday, March 25, for the Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (as Our Lady asked the three little shepherds in Fatima on July 13, 1917):
I invite every community and all the faithful to unite with me on Friday, March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation, for the Solemn Act of Consecration of humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, so that she, the Queen of Peace, may help us obtain peace.
The same act, on the same day, will be carried out in Fatima, by the Pope’s envoy, His Eminence, Konrad Cardinal KRAJEWSKI.
The M.I. International Center therefore asks all members of the Militia around the world, in union with the whole Church, to prepare for, and participate in, the act of consecrating humanity, especially Russia and Ukraine, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. On March 25, Pope Francis will carry out the consecration during the Celebration of Penance at which he will preside at 5:00 p.m. in St. Peter’s Basilica. To prepare for this, the International Center will be offering a moment of prayer from Casa Kolbe in Rome the same day at 3:00 p.m. The event can be followed on the website https://www.facebook.com/miinternational.mi.
May our adherence to this very important act be accompanied by our penance and sincere conversion.
Rome, March 20, 2022
