Consecration of Russia as Just Synodality (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 169)

Updated: Apr 11, 2022

So Fr Cecchin, a leading Vatican mariologist, rejects the link to Fatima of the Consecration done by the Pope.

This is consistent with modernism in the Church. Fatima and the direction of Our Lady are spiritual, while the focus of the Pope is on the social and human, thus the reference to synodality. This is not consecrating Russia as directed by Our Lady, but as Fr Cecchin says, is just praying about injustice, the right of the human person, mafia behavior, and making a better world.

If he is right and the Pope does not refute him, then we just witnessed a beautiful prayer of entrustment of humanity (of great value even for that alone), but is not the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart according to Our Lady’s instructions at Fatima.


Why is a leading Vatican theologian rejecting Fatima links to Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia?

The head of the Vatican’s Pontifical International Marian Academy repeatedly downplayed any link between Pope Francis’ March 25 consecration of Russia and Ukraine and the request made by Our Lady of Fatima.
