                                              The teaching of the Faith in its integrity and with courage is the heart of the office of the Church’s pastors: the Roman Pontiff, the Bishops in communion with the See of Peter, and their principal co-workers, the priests. For that reason, the Third Secret is directed, with particular force, to those who exercise the pastoral office in the Church. Their failure to teach the faith, in fidelity to the Church’s constant teaching and practice, whether through a superficial, confused or even worldly approach, and their silence endangers mortally, in the deepest spiritual sense, the very souls for whom they have been consecrated to care spiritually. The poisonous fruits of the failure of the Church’s pastors is seen in a manner of worship, of teaching and of moral discipline which is not in accord with Divine Law. 

                                            Very well stated by Cardinal Burke !

Sounds familiar....

Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of morals… As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. Freemasonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church
In this supreme moment of need for the Church, the one who should speak will fall silent.” -Our Lady of Good Success

That statement in bold by Our Lady sounds a whole lot like Bishop Emeritus Benedict XVI, doesn't it?

It's  very late, but I will give Cardinal Burke credit for speaking up - although after the Dubia, he was totally marginalized from here on in.  Now is the time for Pope Emeritus Benedict to speak up to fix this mess.

Kind of puzzling that Bishop Emeritus Benedict XVI is a central point in a number of contentious Fatima statements, including his own interpretation of the secret that contradicts statements he made on the 3rd secret when he was head of the CDF, and the Dollinger claims that have surfaced, and many people have believed he is "the bishop dressed in white from the 3rd secret (why wouldn't she just say Pope, as only the pope dressed in white, unless she knew it wasn't the pope?). Great speculation only... nothing more,, it's just impetus for prayer and penance on my part.

Excellent news, I hope to see the Consecration of Russia soon; I believe it will spell the end of Eastern Orthodoxy. I only a wish this 500th anniversary of the Protestant revolt could see an end to that impious heresy also.

For a Cardinal with a strong voice in the Church, one who probably didn't speak much on the issue, to suddenly come out with this, is possibly a sign that Our Lady is making some major preparations for this year. If I read correctly, Bishop Athansius Schneider pretty much agreed with His Eminence at the same talk. Even Jesse Romero, a Catholic radio show host (not associated with any in the Traditional movement), as well as a frequent guest of his, Dr. Ed Mazza (sp?) have come out with the same thing.

"Bishop Schneider: Consecration will bring Russia ‘to the fullness of conversion’

ROME, May 30, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) –  As Cardinal Raymond Burke made his historic call for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at the Rome Life Forum last week, one of his most enthusiastic supporters was Bishop Athanasius Schneider who was also present at the Forum.

Bishop Schneider was one of the first signatories to the appeal for the consecration, and explained to LifeSite his thoughts on the matter.

Bishop Schneider says he considers Cardinal Burke’s initiative to ask the Holy Father to “explicitly” consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary “very important.” It will, he said, “fulfill more completely and perfectly the desire of Our Lady of Fatima.”

The notion of the consecration comes from the most famous and accepted apparition of the Mother of Jesus, one which has been declared authentic by the Catholic Church and been cited by numerous Popes over the last 100 years. It was authenticated as well by the most stupendous and documented miracle of all time – the “dance of the sun” witnessed by 70,000 people and recorded by the secular media.

At Fatima, Our Lady said Christ wished the Pope in union with the world’s bishops to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. She promised that after it was done Russia would be converted and a period of peace would be given to the world. If not, Our Lady of Fatima warned, Russia “will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church.” She added, “The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.”

Pope St. John Paul II entrusted the world to the Immaculate Heart in 1984, but chose not to mention Russia under advice even though he wanted to do so. His counselors said it would be too offensive to the Russian Orthodox, and he gave in to their demands, according to the recently revealed testimony of Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes.

Bishop Schneider said he believes that an explicit consecration of Russia by the Pope in union with the bishops “will bring us abundant graces to the Church” and also to “Russia and the Russian church.”

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph,” Our Lady of Fatima promised. “The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Bishop Schneider explained that Russia has yet to arrive “at the fullness of conversion, that is to be Catholics united with the Holy See.”  This, he said, “will bring a lot of graces” which “Our Lady promised to our time for the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart.”

Watch Bishop Schneider's interview with LifeSiteNews:



Conversion of Russia and peace remain elusive to date. There has been more war, massacres, martyrs, and abortions in the last half-century than ever before in recorded history. Russia, where abortion was first legalized in 1920, still has the highest abortion rate in the world per capita. With a population of 143 million, there are 1.2 million abortions per year.

Sr. Lucia, the eldest and longest surviving seer at Fatima, wrote Cardinal Carlo Caffarra over thirty years ago, telling him that “a time will come when the decisive battle between the kingdom of Christ and Satan will be over marriage and the family.” At his talk at the Rome Life Forum, Cardinal Caffarra said that the time she foretold to him has come."
