Say what you will about the SSPX, they are not afraid to put it out there.
Following up on their two previous successful Rosary Crusades, Bishop Fellay has announced a new effort of 12 million Rosaries for the intention that the Holy Father, along with the world's bishops, finally consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as our Lady requested at Fatima.
Mary promised that when this is accomplished her Immaculate Heart would triumph, Russia would be converted, and that a period of peace would be given to the world.
A bold play by the SSPX, and a necessary one. Hopefully, at least it will cause Catholics to come to grips with the issue of why the consecration has not been done; also, for those who think it has already been done, it may be a reality check.
From the Fellay letter:
"It seems to us that the moment is come to launch a substantial offensive, deeply anchored in the message of Our Lady at Fatima, in which she herself promised the happy ending, for she announces that, in the end, her Immaculate Heart will triumph. It is this triumph that we ask her, by the means that she herself requests, the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart by the Supreme Shepherd and all the bishops of the Catholic world, and the propagation of the devotion to her Dolorous and Immaculate Heart. It is for this that we wish to offer her, with this purpose, from now to March 25, 2010, a bouquet of 12 million Rosaries, as a crown of as many stars around her, accompanied by an equivalent sum of daily sacrifices that we may be able to fulfill most of all in the faithful accomplishment of the duties of our state of life, and with the promise to propagate the devotion to her Immaculate Heart."
