Fatima Novena for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Fatima Novena for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Peace in the World.
O Most Holy Virgin Mary, you came to Fatima to reveal the graces that come from praying the Holy Rosary to three little shepherd children. Inspire us with a sincere love of this devotion so that, like the shepherd children, it is not a burdensome task but a life-giving prayer. May our prayers and meditations on the mysteries of our redemption bring us closer to your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Lady of Fatima, may we offer everything we do today to our Lord. As we make this offering, we think of people who are affected by our actions each day. We ask God to help us be motivated by love and compassion.
Lord Jesus, the miracles, prophecies and prayers that Your Mother brought to us at Fatima amazed the whole world. We are certain of her closeness to You. We ask through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima, Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta that you graciously hear and answer our prayers,
especially the Consecration of Russia to Your Immaculate Heart. 
Our Father, Hail Holy Queen, Glory Be, Oh My Jesus.
Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for us!
Our Lady of the Rosary, Pray for us!
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for us!
Saint Francisco and Saint Jacinta, Pray for us!
“From every kind of injustice in the life of society, both national and international, deliver us.”

NOTE: St. John Paul's consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary no doubt led to the fall of the Iron Curtain. Sr. Lucia said as much. Nevertheless, it is still the hope of many that some day a Sovereign Pontiff will make the Fatima Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart specifically as requested by Our Lady.

Can Anyone Choose Hell?


From Regis Martin at Crisis:

It is, of course, very bad indeed. Exceedingly, even hellishly bad, as it leaves one perpetually forlorn. Sartre, in other words, was dead wrong: Hell is not other people, as depicted in No Exit. Hell is being alone, absolutely and forever. It is, as the holy monk Fr. Zossima reveals in Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov, “the suffering of being unable to love.” Not to love the other, whether it be God or one’s neighbor, to anchor all one’s eros upon oneself, this is the philosophy on which Hell depends. And God, taking us finally at our word, will not stop us.

“Hell is what the judging God condemned and cast out of his creation,” writes Hans Urs von Balthasar. “It is filled with all that is irreconcilable with God, from which he turns away for all eternity. It is filled with the reality of all the world’s godlessness, with the sum of the world’s sin; therefore, with precisely all of that from which the Crucified has freed the world.” (Read more.)
