CDL. BURKE: RUSSIA MUST BE CONSECRATED TO IMMACULATE HEART
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Raymond Burke is publicly calling for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
His comments came in front of an audience at the fourth annual Rome Life Forum, which included co-author of the dubia Cdl. Carlo Caffarra, as well as Bp. Athanasius Schneider and more than 100 pro-life leaders from around the world. In his address, "The Secret of Fatima and a New Evangelization," Cdl. Burke spoke of a connection between the Third Secret of Fatima and the teaching and governing roles of priests and bishops.
Burke clarified that he's not aiming to cast doubt on the merits of the May 25, 1984 consecration by Pope St. John Paul II of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but called again for an explicit consecration of Russia by name, together with the world's bishops. A consecration, which fulfills all of those conditions, has not yet been accomplished.
