We wrote already about the apparition of Our Lady in Tuy when she requested the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.
Let us compare that request with the one of July 1917 in order to see precisely what she was asking for.
On 13 July 1917, she announces: “I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted”. She doesn’t say “My request”, but “My requests”, that is both requests.
On 13 June 1929, in Tuy, Our Lady gives 4 conditions for the consecration of Russia. She requires the Pope:
- to unite “with all the bishops of the world”
- to make the consecration
- of Russia
- to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
On 13 May 1930, Sister Lucia explains further the will of Heaven and adds 2 conditions:
- “a solemn act of reparation and consecration of Russia to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary”
- “the promise that upon the ending of this persecution [the persecution of the Church by those following the errors of Russia] he will approve and recommend the practice of the reparatory devotion already described.”
