RUSSIA HAS BEEN CONVERTED
Just as Our Lady promised at Fatima the consecration of Russia was carried out by Pope Pius XII, and as a result of this consecration, Russia has indeed been converted.
Let’s look at some FACTS:
[Pope Pius XII -Our Lord to Sister Lucy, 1931:"Like the King of France they will repent do it(the Consecration), but it will be late..."]
Pope Pius XII, Sacro Vergente Anno (Apostolic Letter), July 7, 1952 : “…just as a few years ago We consecrated the entire human race to the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary, Mother of God, so today We consecrate and in a special manner We entrust all the peoples of Russia to this Immaculate Heart…”
#2 Our Lady never said that the conversion of Russia means that Russia would be converted to the Catholic faith.
Proverbs 16:7- “ When the Ways of man shall please the Lord, He will convert even his enemies to peace.”
Notice that the words of Our Lady are structured on the promise of Proverbs 16:7 : the “conversion” of Russia does not mean the conversion of the nation to the Catholic faith, but rather the conversion of a persecuting enemy (Russia) to a certain period of peace.
Joseph Stalin, arguably the greatest mass murderer in history and leader of Communist Russia from 1924 -1953, accounted for 14.5 million lives.
THE CONVERSION OF RUSSIA
The fall of the satellites:
The fall of Poland- In 1956 the regime became more liberal…freeing of many people from prison…”Solidarity” became a political force…it eroded the dominance of the Communist Party…it greatly contributed to the soon-following collapse of Communism all over Eastern Europe.
The fall of Hungary- In May, 1989, National borders opened with Austria.. cement and barbed wired barricades which held the people of Hungary inside their oppressed land …were taken down.
The fall of East Germany- collapse of Berlin wall during Nov, 1989 as Erich Honnecker, the toughest Communist west of China gradually lost control of the Satanic regime .
The fall of Czechoslavakia- on Dec 7 (now that’s a significant date in the Church’s calendar) a new non-communist government was installed. Millions of Czechs and Slavaks celebrated.
And the fall of Bulgaria and Rumania-Dec 12 ,the Bulgarian Communist Party agreed to relinguish its monopoly of power and hold free elections.
On Dec 21, the Communist dictator of Rumania, Ceausescu and his vicious wife Elena, were hissed and jeered at by large crowds …..on Christmas Day 1989 they were given their reward…”.court martialled, convicted, and executed”….(Warren H. Carroll,The Rise and Fall of the Communist Revolution.) [ The Fall of the Berlin wall- East Germany 1989]
While the era of persecution officially culminated with the fall of the satellites (1989-1991) and the dissolution of the Soviet Union (1991), the winds of change began much earlier than that, in fact scarcely within one generation of the consecration of Russia by Pope Pius XII in 1952.
The death of Stalin in 1953 was a good start. Nikita Khrushchev actually denounced Stalin and allowed the publication of a book exposing the horrors of the Gulag labor camps.
Of course, Khrushchev was an evil Communist who threatened nuclear war with the U.S.(which never came to pass), told the world at the U.N. that “we will bury you,” and wanted to profit politically by the denunciation of Stalin.
But the fact that he could actually get away with denouncing Stalin and allowing the publication of the book exposing the Gulag, showed how things were beginning to change inside the Soviet Union - how the era of persecution was coming to an end –which eventually led to the collapse of the evil regime in 1991.
