Pope Calls For ‘Laudato Si’ Week in May – But Isn’t Fatima More Urgent?

Pope Calls For ‘Laudato Si’ Week in May – But Isn’t Fatima More Urgent?

See the source imageVatican City, Mar 3, 2020 / 09:57 am (CNA).- Pope Francis is calling on Catholics to participate in “Laudato si’ Week” in May to encourage care for our common home.

“I renew my urgent call to respond to the ecological crisis. The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor cannot wait anywhere,” Pope Francis said in a video message published March 3.

The video shows young protesters yelling, “Climate justice, now” juxtaposed with images of wildlife in Africa and a beached whale.
Laudato si’ Week, sponsored by the Dicastery for Integral Human Development will take place May 16-24. The date marks the 5th anniversary of the publication of Pope Francis’ encyclical on integral human ecology.

The Global Catholic Climate Movement and Renova + are facilitating the campaign.

The Laudato si’ Week website recommends Catholics participate by engaging elected representatives, conducting an energy audit, or divesting in fossil fuels. It also recommends the option to “represent your commitment with a symbolic gesture,” such as planting a tree or attending a climate strike.

Laudato si’, which means “Praise be to You,” was published June 18, 2015, and was dated May 24. Pope Francis took the name for the encyclical from St. Francis of Assisi’s medieval Italian prayer “Canticle of the Sun,” which praises God through elements of creation such as Brother Sun, Sister Moon, and “our sister Mother Earth.”  Click here to read entire report


Our Lady of Fatima warned that if her message is heeded  there will be a period of peace in the world. If not, various nations would be annihilated and there would be anything but peace in the world (to paraphrase…) 

Immaculate Heart of Mary
pray for us!

This from the Fatima Center website, in summary: …the Pope is designated as the one primarily responsible for future peace: “God asks the Holy Father… ” The peace of the world, we are told in the Fatima Message, depends upon the Pope and the world’s bishops obeying the request for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It cannot and will not come about through any other means. Source

So, why – in the very month dedicated to Our Lady – would the Pope (any pope!) dedicate a week to a gimmicky political cause, at a time when the world is in turmoil through wars and diseases, and yet continue to ignore the most important event of the 20 century – the Fatima prophecies which contain the means to restore good order and peace in the world.  St Paul wasn’t kidding when he told the Ephesians that “…our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places (Ephesians 6:12)

To combat this wickedness, St Paul exhorted the Ephesians to “put on the armour of God” which, in our times,  includes the Consecration of Russia.  Little (Saint) Jacinta urged prayers for the Pope.  Let’s answer that plea – urgently – before the diabolical disorientation in the Church and the world which we are witnessing right now, worsens.

    The whole ‘green’ thing has got entirely out of hand. Wonder why we are getting so many floods? Well it’s not because of ‘climate change’ – it’s because of ludicrous and failed eco-policies imposed on us by the European Union, and now fervently taken up by the Holy See. And look how it benefits us when we disregard those damaging policies:- https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8075877/The-Somerset-Levels-recovered-2014-floods-ignoring-eco-zealots-using-old-ideas.html
    And I’m sick to death of the way the world is lauding and feting a 17 year old attention seeker with mental health issues – i.e. Greta Thunberg. Even MEPS were in uproar recently when a ban imposed by the EU on visitors to Brussels because of the coronavirus, was lifted especially for Thunberg as part of her interminable global tour. The world truly has gone mad.
    And I fully agree about Fatima – it is more urgent than ever before. If Our Lady would have wanted us to become eco-warriors, She would have made that perfectly clear in 1917 or in Her subsequent apparitions to Sister Lucia. But I fear a catastrophe will have to take place first in order to bring the Pope and the Bishops to heel, and make the Consecration of Russia as requested, and also – as Sister Lucia made clear – after the Consecration of Russia, for the Holy See to formally promulgate the First Five Saturday devotion.

      That Daily Mail article took forever to get to the point of telling us what they did differently – building man-made dykes. I stopped reading soon after that since these articles tend to repeat the same information over and over and I find it irritating.

      The thing is, good for them to ignore the EU restrictive rules and take matters into their own hands. As for Greta’s “interminable global tour” – I wholeheartedly agree with you. I wonder how this girl is going to do in her school exams (if she even does any)

      “Gimmicky political cause” is what stood out for me in the comment piece above. The whole thing’s a nonsense and it is ridiculous to see grown up people – and especially a pope – taking it seriously.

        A gimmick is all that this “Laudato Si” week is about. Pope Francis should ignore his advisers who are only wanting to keep him in the headlines. I can’t believe that Pope Francis really believes this stuff.

        ” I wonder how this girl is going to do in her school exams (if she even does any)”. This was brought home to me only this week, when I saw pictures of the ‘St Greta’ event in Bristol, attended by thousands of hysterical teenage girls. I laughed when I saw a picture of two such girls holding up a poster saying “HOW WILL WE THOW SHADE IF THERE ARE NO TREES?”. Someone had retrospectively added a tiny ‘R’ into ‘THOW’. Yes, these kids definitely need more time learning how to read and write English, and less time protesting against imaginary problems. E Michael Jones video ‘The Religion of Greta Thunberg’ is well worth a watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hP8BqnFjSOw What I can’t understand is if we can easily find access to all this information debunking the eco-agenda, why can’t anyone in the Vatican find it? I suppose it can only be the ‘diabolical disorientation’ of which Sister Lucia warned us about.

        Westminster Fly,

        That’s some interview with Michael Jones! I didn’t know the half of it about Greta Thunberg – everyone who wants to be informed on this rock star climate change “expert” should watch that video. I won’t say more, not to spoil it for others.

        I think it was Pius XI who, writing of Communism, spoke of its architects as targetting “incautious youth”. Climate change, like the LGBT movement and the women’s equality movement, are all proofs that cultural Marxism now dominates in our societies. The ultimate aim is the destruction of the Christian family and the complete eradication of Christ from society. Greta Thunberg, like so many of her age, is just a, manipulated little pagan.

        Athanasius, that’s very interesting. Would you say that there is a link between Communism and Freemasonry?

        March 6, 2020 at 6:20 pm
      • Athanasius


        Absolutely. The Popes have often linked Communism with Freemasonry, the architechts and promoters being one and the same. For example, the 10 Communist architects of the Munich revolution at the turn of the 20th century were all members of the same Masonic lodge. That’s just one of many examples demonstrating that Communism and Masonry work hand in glove.

        March 6, 2020 at 8:18 pm
      • Helen

        What’s confusing me about this is that several Communist regimes actually banned Freemasonry because of its secretiveness etc.

        March 7, 2020 at 11:52 am
      • Athanasius


        That’s just a front, much like the Communists banning homosexuality in Moscow after the 1917 revolution becuase it was so rife it was discrediting the regime. The last thing they want is for people to put 2 and 2 together, so they give the appearance of hostility between the two evil forces when, in fact, they operate together for the same end.

        Think of it another way. We have on the one hand Capitalism and on the other Communism. Now they both appear to be directly hostile one to the other, yet we find that the Capitalist banks financed the Russian Revolution in 1917. Hence, two apparently opposing forces, though both materialistic and godless, working towards the same end, which is the eradication of Christianity from the face of the earth.

        I watched that Video from start to finish and it really opened my eyes and my mind. I actually now feel Sorry for Greta Thunberg I never knew the Background at all. What this Video showed me was The Truth behind a Little Scared Girl and a Country completely without a God. Something that the SNP wants and is doing to us. At least to the Young. There was really some fascinating insights into the Life of The Whole Thunberg Family. I never knew that Her Mother was a successful Opera Singer who was away most of the time and Greta and Her Sister both missed her so much. I knew that Sweden was a bit nuts but I never knew the Reasons. Take out God Completely and as Michael Jones said its only Man that can be more or less worshipped and adored. Of course I knew all this with the sort of Garbage that is on TV and how so called Stars are Adored. Even in the Names of The Shows like American Idol. Etc. In fact as Michael Jones has said Climate really has nothing to do with Greta it was getting Her Mother back and in that she has been successful.

        Westminster Fly,

        This morning, a reader caught me after Mass (First Saturday) to say she’s watched that video and it just answers everything about the whole global warming/climate change scam.

        So, thank you again for posting it – I will watch it asap.

        That was a very enlightening video you linked, thank you. It opens up the really sinister motives of those behind the Climate Change religion, how they will even manipulate and exploit a child with known psychiatric problems to enhance their message of doom and destruction while capitalising on the benefits of environmental taxation. Incredible stuff that the world will one day come to recognise as the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on humanity.

        Glad that people found the video helpful. YouTube does have its good points . . . I’ve worked with people with Aspergers Syndrome and people on the autistic spectrum and they can become very fixated and obsessive about things (not to mention devious and manipulative at times) and they can misunderstand situations and also their own feelings and emotions are often haywire – for example – it has been discovered that a lot of the children going forward for this ‘gender reassignment’ have been found to be on the autistic spectrum. Which makes it even more wicked really, because these children have mental health issues and yet they are being shoved into taking puberty blockers and having surgery.
        Our world leaders cannot be unaware that Greta has mental health issues – as you said Editor, her parents openly acknowledge the fact – so why are our world leaders, both spiritual and temporal, giving her a platform to live out her obsessive behaviour?

        I’ve just watched the video – the information about her family is very interesting indeed. Explains a lot. I also laughed at the news that the sailboat trip was a waste of time, since the crew had to fly back to take her home! You couldn’t make this stuff up!

        What is particularly illuminating is that her mother/family openly acknowledge that Greta has mental health issues. In fact, as Michael E. Jones reveals, they don’t just admit it, they brag about it!

      Am with you as far as St Greta is concerned. Whether this Poe Faced Girl is Playing With A Full Deck is up for discussion as She has certainly become Very Rich through standing on a Street corner with a Poster . I must try it myself. Or is Her and Her equally obnoxious parents just in it for The Money. As for Pope Francis personally av given up on the Man and don’t even believe he is a Catholic ,as one most Certainly cannot be a Catholic and a Marxist at the same time. And Francis is most definitely a Marxist. This little Tree Planting is most certainly a thing of the Past . I remember the phrase in the 70s . Plant a Tree In 73 . Also as for the Consecration of Russia. If that Is going to be done it will be done with The Russian Orthodox Bishops. Also I know not how many of you read Vladimir Putin’s statement on The Rotten to The Core BBC Website yesterday he said . That as long as He is President of Russia there will be NO such a thing as Homosexual Marriage their. He said that Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman. It’s not sure yet if Francis is going to repeat what the Leader of a Communist Country has said. Of course it’s also said that someday Pigs might Fly .

        I understand that Ed what am trying to say is that it most certainly seems to me that Russia for all its Faults is more Christian than the rest of Europe put together. At least they do not have those Horrible Dreadful Reprobate Pride Things. Nor do they have 1000s of Children lined up for either Chemical Castration or Physical Castration. And let’s be Honest here . There is No Way that Francis is going to come out and make a public announcement about Traditional Marriage in the way that President Putin has .

        Bad and all as Pope Francis is, there’s no way HE is going to send a hitman to execute a journalist(s).

        That’s no argument, FOOF. A major criticism of Pope Francis is that, at the very least, he spreads confusion. So why would you want to follow his example? Why confuse people by suggesting that someone or group of people (the Orthodox) who have rejected Christ’s Church might be chosen by God to fulfil the Fatima Consecration? Just because Putin may be right thinking about some things, doesn’t change the fact that he is a Communist dictator, and that the goal of Communism is the destruction of the Catholic Church.

        Clear thinking, FOOF – pray for it!

        March 6, 2020 at 11:21 am
      • Faith of Our Fathers

        Ed. Bad and all that Francis is HE is not going to send a Hitman. Yet Cardinal Vigano along with other Good Holy Clergymen have to go into Hiding. So al ask You who are they Hiding from. It most certainly isn’t Putin. You surely must also know of The Priest in the USA who is still in Hiding as his Bishops thinks that he requires to be Placed in a Nuthouse. The good and Holy Priest who Burned the Homosexual Garments of a Previous Priest. Who and what is he hiding from. Again it most certainly isn’t Putin. We’re both on the same Page regards what is good and what is Evil. I think.

      • editor


        Actually, and perhaps unwittingly, you underline the point I am trying to make. Just because Francis does something bad and Putin does something right, isn’t a reason to think that Our Lady got it wrong by asking the Pope and Bishops to consecrate Russia. She didn’t ask Putin & Co. for a reason and the reason is (drum roll) one religion is NOT as good as another.

        God wants the Pope and bishops to consecrate Russia. It’s only causing confusion to say “they’re not doing it, so why not ask the Orthodox?”

        Some years ago, I attended a “Faith” meeting at which the Catholic Times columnist Fr Francis Marsden was asked by a student if he thought that the Holy Ghost would work through the Protestant denominations, given that the hierarchy and clergy were causing this crisis. Reply?



        Clear thinking, as I say, FOOF, clear thinking…

        OK I get your points. Ed not for one moment though did I not Believe in The Fatima Message. I am most certainly on the same page as you I adore Her . The Prayers that were said to Our Lady for me many years ago NEVER once went unanswered. At times I thought they did.
        But God’s way is not my way . God Bless You and I want you also to know that your Appreciated.

        In Portugal we know the Fatima message is truth 100% but separation between the Russian Orthodox and the Catholic is no different from division between the Catholic Church and the many Lefebvrist and Sedevacantist sects. Yes, the Orthodoxy Bishops could consecrate Russia to Our Lady!

        Fortunately, we don’t need to worry, since it is obvious fact that the consecration has already been done a long time ago. Thank God!

        Sorry, but you are wrong on both counts, which I’m sure you know – you’re here for a bit of sport. So am I, so here goes…

        (1) The irregular situation of the Society of Saint Pius X is in no way comparable to the schismatic condition of the Orthodox. Even Pope Francis has insisted that the SSPX is “Catholic” – you don’t want to be contradicting the Pope, do you?

        (2) Our Lady didn’t ask for “bishops” to consecrate Russia; she asked for the POPE and the Bishops of the world (i.e. Catholic bishops, obviously – the only real bishops around) to unite on the same day etc. to consecrate Russia.

        (3) Would you just remind us of the location of the world peace which Our Lady promised would come after that consecration

        (4) Would you also remind us of precisely, the date when Russia was converted to the Catholic Faith.

        I’ve obviously missed the breaking news of (3) and (4) at the time – too busy watching the progress of the media-hype on the Coronavirus.

        I await your detailed reply, asap.

        Every time you spread falsehoods like this in public it’s Our Lady you insult, not us. I hope that will be sufficient to put a stop to your games going forward. Our Lord will bear many personal insults from mockers, but He will not tolerate insults to His Blessed Mother.

        Fatima is too important and too urgent to be played around with. Take note!

        Are you perhaps a member of the TFP, or of one of its affiliates? I ask that because it has come to my attention at least twice in the past 2 years that certain TFP members are engaged in a devious and utterly dishonest attempt to distort and undermine both the unpublished Third Secret and the failure of the Popes to perform the Consecration of Russia as requested by Our Lady.

        Moreover, I challenge anyone from the TFP to come on here and promote their lies about this. We will look forward to demolishing your falsehoods.

        If he’s from Portugal, he could just as easily be a World Apostolate of Fatima (WAF) member, as they are huge out there, and hold the same views (Consecration’s been done, full 3rd secret has been released, all we need to do now is First Saturdays and Russia’s conversion will be completed, etc, etc)

    PS If anyone is interested, the out-of-print trilogy of books on Fatima, called ‘The Whole Truth About Fatima’ by Frere Michel de la Sainte Trinite, which are the most definitive works on Fatima available, can now be found online here:-
    Volume 1: https://fatima.machado-family.com/vol1
    Volume 2: https://fatima.machado-family.com/vol2
    Volume 3: https://fatima.machado-family.com/vol3
    I appreciate that reading books this long online is very difficult, but I assure you it is worth the effort if you can’t get any second-hand original copies. They are certainly more illuminating than Laudato Si’.

To be avoided at all costs. I would say that the logical updates to Frere Michel’s trilogy are the Fatima Centre http://www.fatima.org books on Fatima (by various authors)

    Well, Pope Francis is till in the news, titled New Humanism Advocates “Freedom” from God”. And this means inviting Leaders of the world of politics, economics, science and education. Also of the world religions to the Vatican on 14th May for the signing of a Global Education Pact.

      Theresa Rose,

      I am stunned at that report. I found it so utterly beyond belief that I’ve copied the following part in case other bloggers and readers don’t click on the link – your link is a 100% must-read…

      Archbishop Vincenzo Zani, Secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education, who has been tasked with organizing the event, explains the theological vision behind this “new humanism,” saying that God “withdraws” in order that man might be free. Vatican Abp organizing Global Education Pact touts pope’s ‘new humanism’ where God ‘withdraws’

      In an interview with LifeSiteNews Vatican correspondent Diane Montagna, Zani made reference to “God who gives man strength, liberty, and life but leaves him free. It is an encounter of freedom.”

      He said that the teaching on Creation – which he says is not exclusively a Christian one – places the focus on man. “It’s the centrality of the person. God creates but then withdraws. He leaves man, saying, ‘Go!’”

      The rest is just as astonishing, but I copied this extract to – hopefully – encourage others to read the entire piece at your link.

      Thank you for that alert. It is truly beyond belief.

        I haven’t yet had time to follow the link and read in full but the extracts you’ve posted here are just typical of high clergy taking God away from the centre of religion and putting man in his place. It all began when they took the tabernacles from their central place of honour in the Sanctuary and put the Bishop’s chair in its place.

        Note also that they never mention that true freedom lies first in observing the Commandments, it’s always “liberty” without qualification. St. Paul called this using liberty as a cloak for malice, which is precisely what these deceivers are all about.

    CHRISTIAN YOGA: Bringing the Kundalini Spirit Into the Church

    Originally written in 2016 – I often feel a nudge from the Holy Spirit to repost this. The enemy of our souls never ceases to attack the body of Christ.
    One way he chooses is to whisper to Christians that Yoga is perfectly fine for them – as long as they stay away from meditation.
    This is NOT true, brethren. I pray that this article helps someone who is caught up in the Hindu practice of Yoga!
    Also, with the false teachings abounding in nearly every denomination, I felt that it was so vitally important to bring this piece out once again.
    Have you watched the people from Emergent churches and NAR (New Apostolic Church) as they writhe on the floors, barking like dogs and then laughing uncontrollably? Is this from God?
    Most Certainly NOT!

    Original Article:

    Nothing seems to get a heated debate started faster than challenging a Christian who practices Yoga on this subject.

    “But I only do the stretching part.” I can’t tell you how many times I have heard this. This article is written for the sake of clarification and education on the practice of Yoga.

    What is Yoga?

    Yoga (/ˈjoʊɡə/; Sanskrit: योग, Listen) are the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind. The term denotes a variety of schools, practices and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism (including Vajrayana and Tibetan Buddhism and Jainism,[ the best-known being Hatha yoga and Raja yoga. The term yoga is derived from the literal meaning of “yoking together” a span of horses or oxes, but came to be applied to the “yoking” of mind and body.- source

    Yoga: noun a mystic and ascetic Hindu discipline by which one seeks to achieve liberation of the self and union with the supreme spirit or universal soul through intense concentration, deep meditation, and practices involving prescribed postures, controlled breathing, etc. a system of exercising involving the postures, breathing, etc. practiced in this discipline [2] – source

    A Christian who studies the Word of God, should instantly see red flags and discern that Yoga and Christianity are not compatible. We see in the definition “Yoga is the physical, mental and spiritual practices or disciplines that aim to transform body and mind.” What does God say about transforming our minds?

    “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). KJV

    Immediately we see a problem between transforming our minds in Yoga, and being transformed by the renewing of our minds according to the Word of God. As Christians, God wants our minds to be renewed, so we will be able to know His will for us. God wants us to be closer to Him. He speaks to us through His Word. He is our perfect Father.

    “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”
    (2 Peter 1:3).

    We know that the practice of Yoga is rooted in Hinduism and Buddhism. As Christians, do we want to open up our minds to something that will transform us to be more like Hindus or Buddhists? Ok, when we see it in black and white, it seems unthinkable. But this is exactly what practicing Yoga is accomplishing in your life.

    Editor: it’s stretching it a bit to consider this “on topic” but since you are posting here for the first time, I’m making an exception. However, as you will see, I’ve edited most of your comment because it is exceptionally lengthy, and so I’ve published only sufficient to get your (correct) message across, that Yoga is a dangerous area for Catholics. Please leave it there and if you post further here, please stick to the topics – as indicated in our House Rules.

      All Eastern meditation methods are just various open doors to demonic possession, Yoga being just one of them.

      As an aside, I note your avatar is an image of the Divine Mercy. You would do well to research this modern devotion since dangers to the souls of Catholics today exist as much inside the Church as outside. An image to rival the Traditional Sacred Heart was always going to be questionable. There are definite problems with the Divine Mercy devotion, not least its origin and the controversy surrounding it. Best stick with the Sacred Heart image and devotion, well proven to be genuine and spiritually beneficial.

    How about us having a counter-Laudato Si’ week? From May 16th to the 24th let’s all pray the rosary for the intention that the Pope consecrates Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and stops concerning himself with bogus science. And also pray the Fatima Prayers given by the Angel:

    “My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee. And I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee”.

    “Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He Himself is offended. And through the infinite merits of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners”.

    “O Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee. My God, My God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament”.

    A Dominican Nun in Fatima formulated a chaplet of these prayers, which are particularly powerful. She asked permission to promulgate it but was told permission wasn’t necessary as the prayers were already approved. https://gloria.tv/post/B1bYPLtxZVxy2DALpJnmResUz

    OK I get your points. Ed not for one moment though did I not Believe in The Fatima Message. I am most certainly on the same page as you I adore Her . The Prayers that were said to Our Lady for me many years ago NEVER once went unanswered. At times I thought they did.
    But God’s way is not my way . God Bless You and I want you also to know that your Appreciated.
    Take Care. J. D.

      You are very kind indeed, and believe me I know full well that you accept the Fatima Message. I am finding, though, that well-intentioned people (including your good self) are so tired of the whole situation in which we find ourselves, that they clutch at every straw in order to try to find a way to bring this horrendous crisis to an end.

      It’s very tempting, I know, but we need to keep a clear head and remind ourselves of certain basic truths, all the time. Our Lady asked for the Pope and Bishops of the one, true Church to consecrate Russia and we can’t change that request to something that seems “easier”. I have no doubt that on reflection you will see the truth of this – you always do… which is why it is always worth debating with you. In the end, I usually hear those glorious words (my all-time favourites): “Ed, you are right…” 😀

    I think the trajectory of the Conciliar Popes is actually a lot worse than just failing to release the Third Secret and perform the Consecration of Russia. I think their trajectory is actually diametrically opposed to what Our Lady requested, and said. Instead of the Consecration of Russia to convert that nation and crush the errors of Russia, we have the hierarchy actually attempting to embed those errors in the Church! Starting with John XXIII’s failure to release the Third Secret (or even before, with Pius XII’s failure to perform the Consecration), and continuing with the Vatican-Moscow Agreement (the so-called “Metz Pact”) which silenced the Church’s traditional condemnation of Communism at Vatican II.

    Francis’ surrender to the Satanic UN and his scandalous Synods are the culmination of this embedding process, spurred along by the apostasy of the German episcopate.

      RCA Victor,

      At the risk of repeating myself (or, more to the point, repeating Sister Lucy) what you describe is simply manifest evidence that when Sister Lucy, presuming quoting Our Lady, foretold a “diabolical disorientation” to come, she wasn’t kidding.

      RCA Victor,

      I think it’s been explained that Pope Pius XII meant to consecrate Russia but he hadn’t understood that all the bishops had to do the consecration at the same time. Although it was careless of him, I think it was a genuine mistake, not that he refused to do the consecration.

        It’s fairly hard to conclude that an exceptionally intelligent and gifted Pope like Pius XII misunderstood his duty in regard to Our Lady’s request for the consecration of Russia. It’s much more likely that the Pope was frightened off the idea by liberal whisperers in his ear and so resolved to make a personal consecration of Russia. By that time his health was already in serious decline.

        I didn’t think of it that way. But I am nearly sure I read somewhere that the priest advising him omitted the part about the bishops joining in, but that could be “a liberal whisperer”, as you say.

        To be honest, though, he would go down in my estimation if it was fear, not a mistake, that led him to make a personal consecration, against Our Lady’s clear instruction. I would find that very disappointing indeed.

        I think he was probably more mislead by the whisperers than cowardly. He was an old man in poor health at the time.

      That report is dated 2017. Hopefully, he will have seen the error of his ways in signing up to the EU.
