CWN Editor's Note: “Let us return in our thoughts to her apparitions and the message she conveyed to the world, as well as the attempt on the life of Saint John Paul II, who in the saving of his life saw the intervention of the Holy Virgin,” Pope Francis said at the conclusion of his May 13 general audience. “In our prayer let us ask God, by intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for peace for the world, the end of the pandemic, the spirit of penance, and our conversion.”

    Pope Francis could show his own devotion by making the solemn Consecration of Russia in union with the world's bishops as formally requested by Our Lady on 13 June 1929. Our Lord, Thorugh Sr Lucia, warned the Popes they had 100 years to do this, or suffer disaster. Although Our Lady said that Her Immaculate Heart would eventually triumph, --she also said the consecration [& the brief era of true peace] would be "late."
