At 12:00 Noon Rome time, 17 March 2022, Pope Francis affirmed that all the bishops – “every bishop around the world” – will be joining him for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Five minutes later, at 7:05 AM EST I received this email:
- “Dear George, I have just asked the Holy Father about the Consecration with all the Bishops of the world. He confirmed that that is the way it is going to be: He will do it with every bishop around the world. Let us pray to Our Blessed Mother to stop the devil’s work…; and I also pray to Her to stop the ongoing cultural revolution. God bless you! […]”
So, this is likely known by the bishops or will be known by them in next couple of days. Pray that all individual bishops will join the Holy Father in solidarity. Have your priests join in with their parishes. We’re planning on a Rosary before the Mass Mass at Noon. The Mass will be immediately preceded by a recitation of a consecration by the whole parish. If we had the actual text that would be great. I’ve just now made a request for that for use by all parishes in the world. But there’s no difficulty making one up. I’ll see if I can write one up. But plan number one is now to get a copy of the text of the consecration to be used.
UPDATE: Here’s the Apostolic Nuncio’s letter to all bishops of the USCCB. For all those who have wanted confirmation on what I have penned above, here you go (click on title in box below):
