ACT OF CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY(distributed by the Society of Saint Pius the X)
Prostrate at the foot of thy throne of grace, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, we intend to fulfill, as much as it lies in us, the demands that thou didst express in coming one hundred years ago to appear to us on this earth.
The abominable sins of the world, the persecutions waged against the Church of Jesus Christ, still more the apostasy of the nations and of the Christian souls, and finally the forgetting of thy motherhood of grace by the greatest number overwhelm thy sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, so united in its Compassion to the suffering of the Sacred Heart of Thy Divine Son.
In order to make reparation for so many crimes, thou hast asked for the establishment of the devotion of reparation to thy Immaculate Heart; and with the purpose of stopping the scourges of God that thou didst foretell, thou madest thyself the messenger of the Most High to request of the Vicar of Jesus Christ, united with all the bishops of the world, the consecration of Russia to thy Immaculate Heart.
Alas, thy message has not been taken into consideration.
This is why, in order to anticipate the happy day when the Sovereign Pontiff will accede at last to the requests of thy Divine Son, without ascribing to ourselves an authority that does not belong to us, but by humble supplication addressed to thy Immaculate Heart, in our title as Roman Catholic, penetrated with solicitude for the condition of the universal Church and united to all priests and faithful believers, we are resolved to respond for our part to the demands of Heaven.
Deign then, O Mother of God, to accept in the first place the solemn act of reparation that we present to thy Immaculate Heart, for all the offences with which it is overwhelmed, with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, on the part of sinners and unbelievers. In the second place, we give, deliver, and consecrate, as much as it is in our power, Russia to thine Immaculate Heart: we implore thee, in thy maternal mercy, to take this nation under thy powerful protection, to make of it thy domain where thou reignest as Queen, to make of this land of persecutions a land of preference and of blessing. We entreat thee to submit this nation to thyself so well that converted from its legal impiety, it may become a new kingdom for Our Lord Jesus Christ; a new heritage for His sweet scepter. May it also, returned from its ancient schism, come back to the unity of the one fold of the Eternal Shepherd; and thus subject to the Vicar of thy Divine Son, may it become an ardent apostle of the social Kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ over all the nations of the earth.
We implore thee furthermore, O Mother of Mercy, by that miracle so brilliant of thy suppliant all-powerfulness, to manifest to the world, the truth of thy universal mediation of grace. Deign at last, O Queen of Peace, to bring to the world the peace that the world cannot give, the peace from weapons and the peace from souls, the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ, and the Kingdom of Christ by the reign of thy Immaculate Heart, O Mary.
