Update, Thursday, April 11:  It is now being reported that, indeed, the pontificate of Pope Francis will be consecrated to our Lady of Fatima on May 13Santuario de Fatima.

“A 13 de maio em Fátima, em celebração para a qual é convidado todo o povo de Deus, o pontificado do Papa Francisco será consagrado a Nossa Senhora de Fátima.”  [On May 13, in a celebration to which all the people of God are invited, the pontificate of Pope Francis will be consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima.]

Our Blessed Lord says in Scripture that He does not trust the heart of man.  If that is so, why should we?  Therefore,  I do not place my hopes in the man  Jorge Mario Bergoglio.  I place my hopes in the knowledge that our Lady made a promise and that in all certainty, it will be fulfilled: Her Immaculate Heart will triumph, the restoration of the Church’s divine splendor now obscured, will shine forth once more, and this will be accomplished through the docility of a Pope  who obeys heaven’s requests.

Will it be Pope Francis? Pope Francis turbulent Church3Time will tell, but what is certain is that our Lady of Fatima  can never be ignored, silenced, nor her messages buried.  We keep hearing over and over that word, “FATIMA”.  She will not go away!

Below is the latest bit of news which continues to feed our hopes. (I translated only the pertinent part but the entirety in Spanish can be found on the Zenit site.)


The President of the Portuguese Episcopal Conference, José Policarpo, in his opening of the 181st Plenary Assembly on April 8, said that Pope Francis twice asked him  to consecrate his ministry to Our Lady of Fatima.

“Pope Francis,” said the Cardinal-Patriarch, “asked me twice to consecrate his new ministry to Our Lady of Fatima. It is a request that I can fulfill in the silence of prayer.”  He said, “It would be nice if all of the Episcopal Conference were to be associated in the realization of this request. Mary will guide us in all our work and also in the method of fulfilling the desire of Pope Francis.”

Present were the apostolic nuncio, archbishops and bishops, church representatives and agents of social communication.

The Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children in 1917 in the town of Fatima. Their prophecies [although not yet all] have been dramatically fulfilled and each year millions of faithful make pilgrimages to the sanctuary. John Paul II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – as requested by our Lady [Our Lady specifically asked for Russia, not the world, to be consecration in union with all the world’s bishops, something which has not yet been done.] who appeared to the three seers – a year after the assassination attempt on May 13, 1981, which was considered a miracle to not have been killed by Ali Agca. [Notice that the purported “accomplishment” of 1984 is completely ignored? Everybody is on to it that it wasn’t true!]


Let’s keep praying, specially the rosary, for the fulfillment of the promises of Our Lady!

    Perhaps if you set up your blog so that people might comment using “anonymous” – although I would sign who I am – then I would be able to drop an occasional comment or two.

    I am intrigued by by the unfolding of the Fatima prophecies!

    Someone should come up with a novena to the Divine Justice! The evils in which we are engulfed are so demoralizing, that sometimes I do ask our Lord to mete out some punishment. Especially, I am sickened by the filth and stench of the sins of perverts!

    I will join you in praying more for the consecration of Russia! But, first, that the Holy Father get his wish this coming May 13!

    Viva Cristo Rey! Viva!

    I didn’t know you were unable to leave comments on my blog. I can change the comment section. It wasn’t until I heard (or remembered) what Fr Gruner said regarding the consecration of Russia according to the stigmatist Antonio Ruffini which was to take place during this pontificate that I felt some hope. The hundredth anniversary of the Fatima apparitions approaches. We know what happened to the King of France after exactly one hundred years of failing to carry out the Consecration of France to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, as Our Lord requested in another so-called ‘private apparition’ — to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in 1689. King Louis was guillotined and France descended into a revolutionary bloodbath that changed the whole world for the worse.”
    And we know too what happened to the Jesuits in the 18th century when they failed to promote the revelations of the Sacred Heart that had first been conveyed to St Claude la Colombiere. All we can do is pray as you know very fervently. Yes Fiat! I most certainly wish to be a part of the restoration of the Church.

    oremus pro invicem,

    Thanks for stopping by, Servus. I cannot leave any comments on your blog because I do not have a google account, nor can I access wordpress.

    I do not expect it to happen soon. I imagine the worst: that possibly WWIII will have started by then. But the consecration will be done!

    Right now, looking the the early beginnings of the papacy of Francesco, it certainly doesn’t appear like he is the pope of the restoration. My, oh, my!

    Our Lady of Quito: “In order to free men from bondage to these heresies[of the times], those whom the merciful love of My Most Holy Son will destine for that restoration will need great strength of will, constancy, valor and much confidence in God. To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions when everything will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration.”

    praised be JESUS CHRIST! You are right we cannot put our hope in a man but must pray very, very much for Papa Francesco. This is why I have committed myself to saying 5 extra decades a day for him specifically and also for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

    in corde Jesu et Mariae,
