  • The Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a belief in the Roman Catholic Church that a specific act of consecration on the part of the Pope has been required by the Virgin Mary, in return for which there would be world peace.

    The Consecration of Russia is inherently related to the Marian apparitions reported at Our Lady of Fátima and Pontevedra, Portugal during which Portuguese children stated that the Virgin Mary appeared to them and delivered specific messages. The reported messages included a number of secrets that were gradually revealed by the Holy See. The messages emphasize the praying of the Rosary, wearing of the Brown Scapular, made a number of prophecies and promises, one of which was that through the Consecration of Russia peace would be achieved.
