Consecration? What consecration?

I watched most of EWTN’s weekend coverage of this “consecration” and unfortunately the EWTN translator didn’t translate word for word, but rather said things like “The Pope is reminding us that…” or “The Pope is saying we must…”.

I never heard EXACTLY what Pope Francis’ actual words were.

Today I find Vatican Radio has posted the English translation of what the Pope ACTUALLY said.

Here it is…

Now take another look… do you see the Pope saying or declaring “The World is Consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary” anywhere in there?

Does he even come close to mentioning it or is this just another nice homily on Mary the Mother of God?

Did Pope Francis mention Fatima? Mary’s Immaculate Heart? The word “consecrate”??


Nope, nope and nope.

What does Pope Francis do? … another lecture on the poor.

And WHAT exactly happened? A lovely procession, another nice homily and a gathering of Catholic faithful praying. Good things, but I fail to see a consecration in there.

Someone please point out to me HOW a consecration happens without using the word 'consecrate' and how it was done to Mary's Immaculate Heart WITHOUT MENTIONING Mary's Immaculate Heart.

Just how does that work? Maybe the failure is all mine...

I'd honestly like SOMEONE to explain this to me.


Did anything get consecrated to anything/one?

I agree with the concerns posted in this article.
On October 13, I posted an article about the Pope's October 13 Act of Devotion to Our Lady also questioning whether it was a Consecration at all.

At the culmination of the ceremony the Pope consecrated the world to the Virgin of Fatima. “Teach us your love, especially for the minor and the poor, the marginalised and the suffering, for sinners and for those who have gone astray”.

Weak, very weak.

What were the exact words of consecration that were spoken on Sunday? Why could these reporters have simply included those words in their … More

The Vatican Information Service reports:
"At the culmination of the ceremony the Pope consecrated the world to the Virgin of Fatima."

The consecration did not occur during the homily, but at the end of the Mass, before the Angelus.

Please see the text of Pope Francis:

The Prayer of Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary
Vatican City, October 13, 2013 (Zenit.org)

Holy Mary Virgin of Fatima, ...
... Accept with the benevolence of a Mother
