Pope Francis confirms ALL bishops will together do the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (link)
March 17, 2022
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.
Latin American bishops to join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to Mary’s Immaculate Heart (link)

Catholic bishops in Latin America and the Caribbean will join Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25.
The Episcopal Conference of Latin America (CELAM) said on March 15 that it had invited Catholics, church organizations, and 22 bishops’ conferences to “join the intentions of the Holy Father.”
The conference said it had received the news of the Marian consecration “with great joy and hope,” especially as there is a need “to redouble our prayer for peace and universal brotherhood.”
“We reiterate our affection and filial communion with the Bishop of Rome, raising our pleas to God our Father so that through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, he will grant us the gift of peace,” CELAM said.
“With our prayer and solidarity, we embrace our most vulnerable brothers and sisters and victims of violent and fratricidal actions, with the certainty that ‘God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God (1 John 4:6),” the bishops added.
The Vatican announced on March 15 that Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. The consecration will take place during a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica at 5 p.m. local time.
Cardinal Konrad Krajewski, the papal almoner, will carry out the same act on the same day at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal.
The Latin American bishops said that they would participate in the consecration “in accordance with the time zones of our countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.”
