Our Lady of Fatima, Traditionalism

Peace Elusive After the 1984 Consecration

Our Lady of Fatima Sacred HeartIn 1984, Pope St. John Paul II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. While he undoubtedly gave great honor to Our Lady by doing so, his consecration did not follow the specific guidelines she laid down. The Holy Father did not even mention Russia—the country whose consecration Our Lady had specifically requested—nor did he include all of the world’s Catholic bishops. As a result, while important blessings have flowed from the 1984 consecration, the period of peace promised to the world by Our Lady has proven elusive.

These numbers represent over 4 million people killed in wars throughout the world since the 1984 consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart.

Is this really the peace promised by Our Lady at Fatima? Does it not seem more likely that the consecration has not been properly accomplished, and that as a result, we are still waiting for the period of peace Our Lady promised us?

There are of course those who argue that the 1984 consecration was acceptable, and that we simply cannot expect the period of peace promised by Our Lady to arrive overnight. However, it’s been nearly 35 years since the 1984 consecration. That’s 35 years of violence, bloodshed, and terror, resulting in the loss of millions of lives. Did Our Lady really perform the astonishing Miracle of the Sun in front of 75,000 people back in October, 1917 in order to announce that things will eventually, someday get better? Or could it be that she really meant what she requested, the consecration of Russia by the Holy Father, in union with all the bishops of the world.

God can do all things, including bringing about the “overnight” conversion of nations. But first he requires us to perform the part he has appointed for us.
