As for praying to Our Lady, its no good asking her to bless such unorthodox efforts especially when you ignored her commands to consecrate russia to her immaculate heart.

The whole tone of this statement is contrary to the Catholic Faith. Try reading a book on grace, merit, and virtue. It is difficult to love those you cannot find a good quality in.

Rubbish, saints over the years have loved prostitutes, heretics, usaries, fornicators etc... they certainly didn't praise them or claim they were good at converting people etc.... Your position is becoming increasingly absurd, it is one thing to be charitable to others and quite another to compare heretics and their efforts at leading others into heresy with true missionary work.

That said you haven't actually addressed any of what I said just used it as a launching board for your own comments, which appear to me to be totally irrelevant.
