Our Lord was referring to His request to King Louis XIV of France on June 17, 1689 to solemnly consecrate his country to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our Lord made His request known through St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and no French King obeyed the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Eventually, on June 17, 1789, 100 years later, King Louis XVI was stripped of his power by the National Assembly and four years later, was beheaded. It is said that while he was in the Bastille, King Louis XVI attempted to consecrate France, but by that time, of course, it was far too late.
It seems likely that Pope Francis will attempt to force through his intended “irreversible” changes to the Church at the final Synod this October. That will be just two short years away from the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of the Rosary’s last appearance at Fatima, October 13, 1917. The year 1917 is also the anniversary of the Russian Revolution (1917), of the establishment of Freemasonry (1717) and of Luther’s revolt (1517). That’s a lot of history coming to bear down on us.
“Like the King of France, they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late.”
What do you think? How long can this go on? In the Rianjo apparition, Our Lord said, “It will be late.” He did not say that it will be too late. Sister Lucia describes the flame-like point striking the axis of the earth as “purification”. It seems possible that this purification will be the final chastisement, after which a chastened Pope faithful to Christ will perform the requested Consecration which will bring a period of peace at last, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. And then will come the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ the King.
One last note, in His appearance at Rianjo to Sister Lucia, Our Lord gave her two of the Fatima Prayers.
‘You console Me a great deal in asking Me for the conversion of those poor nations: Request it also of My Mother, while saying to Her often: Sweet Heart of Mary, be the salvation of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Europe and the whole world.
‘At other times say: By Thy Pure and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, obtain for me the conversion of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Europe and the whole world.“
I have been remiss in not emphasising them more. But it would be lovely if more of us, who are devoted to Our Lady, were to pray these two prayers daily between now and the Synod.
Remember – Our Lady needs us to obey: First Saturdays of Reparation, daily rosary, at least 5 mysteries, wear her brown scapular and live your Total Consecration to her Immaculate Heart, offering daily duties in reparation and for the conversion of poor sinners.
Open your hearts to the Lord and serve Him only: and He will free you from the hands of your enemies. With all your heart return to Him, and take away from your midst any strange gods” (I Kings 7:3)
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
† Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
† St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
† St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King. Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
