Act of Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

August 21, 2017

On August 20, Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General recited this act of consecration along with Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais and Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta, auxiliary bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X during an international pilgrimage gathering more than 10.000 faithful from all over the world.

Prostrate at the foot of your throne of grace, O Queen of the Holy Rosary, we intend to accomplish, insofar as we are able, the requests you expressed when you came one hundred years ago to appear to us on this earth.

The abominable sins of the world, the persecutions directed against the Church of Jesus Christ, and even more, the apostasy of nations and Christian souls, and the forgetfulness of so many of your motherhood of grace crush your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, so united in its compassion with the sufferings of the Sacred Heart of your divine Son.

In order to repair so many crimes, You have asked for the establishment of the devotion of reparation to your Immaculate Heart; and in order to stop the scourges of God you predicted, you became the messenger of the Most High to ask the Vicar of Jesus Christ, together with all the bishops of the world, to consecrate Russia to your Immaculate Heart. Alas, they have not yet heeded your message.

Therefore, in anticipation of the happy Day when the Sovereign Pontiff finally accedes to the demands of your divine Son, without attributing to ourselves an authority that is not ours, but with a humble supplication to your Immaculate Heart, as a Catholic bishop full of concern for the fate of the universal Church, and in union with all the bishops, priests, and faithful believers, we have resolved to respond to the best of our ability to Heaven’s requests.

Deign, therefore, O Mother of God, to accept the solemn act of reparation that We present to your Immaculate Heart for all the offenses with which, along with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, it is afflicted by sinners and by ungodly men.

Secondly, as far as it is in our power, we give, deliver, and consecrate Russia to your Immaculate Heart: we beg you, in your motherly mercy, to take this nation under your powerful protection, make it your domain in which you may reign as Sovereign, make this land of persecution a land of choice and blessing.

We conjure you to submit this nation to yourself so completely that, converted from her legal godlessness, she may become a new kingdom for Our Lord Jesus Christ, a new legacy for His sweet scepter. And that converted from her ancient schism, she may return to the unity of the one fold of the Eternal Shepherd, and thus subject to the Vicar of your divine Son, she may become an ardent apostle of the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ over all the nations of the earth.

We also beseech thee, O Mother of Mercy, by this most splendid miracle of your suppliant omnipotence, to manifest to the world the truth of your universal mediation of grace.

And lastly, deign, O Queen of Peace, to bring to the world the peace that the world cannot give, peace of weapons and peace of souls, the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of Christ through the reign of your Immaculate Heart, O Mary. Amen.
