The consecration of Russia will have its effects. The promises given by heaven should be a powerful motivation to accomplish Our Lady’s request.
Any person can consecrate himself, and he can consecrate others as well. At Fatima, however, Our Lady required that this act of consecration of Russia be accomplished by the highest authority on earth, the Pope. And not only the Pope, but the Pope together with all the bishops of the world, i.e., Peter and the college of apostles, represented by the bishops.
On 13 July 1917, Our Lady of Fatima asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.
The Director of the Militia Immaculatae, Fr. Karl Stehlin established a circle M.I. 2 — Mission for Russia (a second degree of the Militia Immaculatae), bringing together all Knights to pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, according to the requests of Our Lady at Fatima and in Tuy.
