Ask Vladimir Putin to request the consecration of Russia this October 13th
As many Catholic readers already know,

Pope will consecrate world to Immaculate Heart of Mary
CWN – August 21, 2013

Pope Francis will consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at a Vatican ceremony on October 13.
The “Marian Day” ceremony, organized by the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, will be held on the anniversary of the final appearance of the Virgin Mary at Fatima. For the occasion, the original statue of Our Lady of Fatima will be brought from the shrine in Portugal to the Vatican, for public veneration on October 12 followed by the consecration ceremony the following day.
Pope Francis will also speak on Marian devotion, and preside at Eucharistic adoration, and lead the Rosary with audio links to Marian shrines around the world on the eve of the consecration.

In 1925 the Fátima visionary Sr Lúcia dos Santos stated regarding the Virgin Mary of Fátima:

“… It was Our Lady of Fátima… with a crown of thorns… and said to me: “The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father in union with all the Bishops of the world to consecrate Russia to My Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means.””

Regardless of differing views regarding prior efforts of Popes to fulfill the instructions expressed by Our Lady of Fatima regarding the Consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, perhaps Russian President Vladimir Putin could help encourage Pope Francis to include the Consecration of Russia, by name, during the Pope’s October 13th ceremony at the Vatican.

Recently, President Putin stated he would defend Russia based on her religious values:

Russia will defend national identity, based on religious values – Putin
Valdai, September 20, Interfax – People will lose their human dignity without values enshrined in Christianity and other world religions, without moral standards that have taken millennia to take shape, President Vladimir Putin.

“We believe that it is natural and appropriate to defend those values. Any minority deserves respect for its distinctive identity, but the rights of the majority must not be questioned,” Putin said during a meeting of the Valdai discussion club.

He believes, that Russia can’t move forward without cultural and national self-determination. Otherwise the country won’t be able to respond to external or internal challenges, can’t be successful in global competition.

“Events that take place in the world represent one more serious challenge to the Russian identity. There are foreign policy and moral aspects to this. We have been able to see many Euro-Atlantic countries effectively embark on a path of renouncing their roots, including Christian values, which underlie Western civilization,” Putin said.

“That involves the negation of moral principles and any traditional identity – national, cultural, religious, or even sexual,” he said.

“Policies are pursued that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan. Excesses of political correctness reach the point where there are serious discussions on the registration of parties that have propaganda of pedophilia as their objective. People in many European countries are ashamed and afraid of speaking about their religion, holidays are abolished or given other names, names that shyly conceal the nature of those holidays, and aggressive attempts are made to force this model on the rest of the world,” Putin said.

“This is a direct path to degradation and primitiveness, to deep demographic and moral crises,” he said.

“What can be a better indication of a moral crisis in human society than its loss of the ability for self-reproduction?” Putin said.

President Putin needs as much supernatural assistance as possible in his efforts. The battle he is waging for Russia is the same battle Pope Francis is waging against the secularization, materialism and moral decay in the west.

Please consider contacting President Vladimir Putin at the website specifically established to email him at

Email correspondence is limited to 2000 characters. Here is a the text of the letter I just submitted:

Recently through the diplomatic efforts of Russia and global prayers lead by Pope Francis, war in Syria was narrowly averted. Christians in the Holy Land are being persecuted and killed, and western nations seem indifferent to their plight. We need your continued leadership in protecting the Christians in the Holy Land and in averting war in the middle east. In 1925, the Theotokos appeared to Sr. Lucia of Fatima and requested that Russia be consecrated, by name, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary by the Pope, in union with the bishops of the world. Many believe this consecration has not been completed as explicitly requested for fear of offending the Russian Orthodox and/or the Russian government. Regardless of these controversies it is obvious that Russia is now the solitary nation defending traditional Christian Truths on the world stage. For her to continue to lead this fight for the soul of Christendom, Russia needs the Grace and Blessings of Our Lord and the intercession of the Theotokos in a way that is unique in the history of mankind.

Given the precarious state of world peace and the disintegration of family and morality, would you please consider using your considerable influence with both the Vatican and the Russian Orthodox Church to request that Pope Francis, when he consecrates the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary this October 13th, that he specifically consecrate Russia, by name, to the Immaculate Heart of the Theotokos? With the blessings and encouragement of the Russian President and the Russian Orthodox Church, I truly believe this consecration would work miracles for your people and your Church, and for peace in our world. It would assist those of us battling the secularization and moral decay of the western nations immeasurably.

Please prayerfully consider this request.

Please ask Pope Francis to consecrate Russia by name to the Immaculate Heart of the Theotokos this October 13.

Thank you,
Dr. Brian Kopp

  1. this is a great angle! The consecration of Russia must be accomplished- our only hope!

  2. And if anyone can make it happen, why not a lifelong Pirates fan, eh? : – )

    I may actually consider this….

    I just may.

  3. Brian, I put it up on several other trad websites (all on Facebook).

    The more I think about it…. y’know?

  4. Nice angle Kopp. As crazy as things are today, nothing would surprise me.

  5. I woke up at 3:00 this morning with this idea fully formed upon waking (its not something I was pondering in general) and felt compelled to “put it out there.”

    I also posted it over on FreeRepublic. A friend just brought to my attention that Spirit Daily linked to it there today. I’m sure thousands have looked at it because hundreds have subsequently followed the links through and visited my blog. Several dozen followed the link from my blog to the Kremlin site where they too can write to Putin. I hope many of them do so.

    We need this to happen. Maybe Putin can convince this Pope to do that which countless Catholics have been unable to convince any Pope to do so far.

  6. I’m getting feedback, too, Brian.

    Nobody really knows what it might accomplish but since nothing else has worked?

  7. Glad to hear it. I nuked my Facebook account this past spring so I’m not able to see any of the discussions there but I’ve been getting a ton of hits on the blog off Facebook today so I know folks are following your posts/links.

    I hope people don’t just read it and nod their heads. I hope they take the time to write to Putin. Even if only a couple dozen westerners contact him it might be enough to precipitate something unexpected.

  8. Dr. Brian, excellent initiative. I just sent
    “Mr President Putin, Please ask Pope Francis to consecrate “Russia” to the Immaculate Heart of Mary as Our Lady specified – but publish your request. Only after the Pope obeys the virgin Mother can Russia’s long prophesied destiny be fulfilled to rebuild the Universal Church and save humanity. Only after the Russian church kneels to the Pope, can the Russian people face the truth of their Great Patriotic War:- that the greatest Russian patriots fought with the Germans against the satanised violators of their people, that the satanists murdered more Russian soldiers than the Germans killed. Solzhenitsyn has recorded how Russia’s best faced the beast unto death.”

  9. Dear President Putin,

    I am an American Traditional Catholic who has been very supportive of your consistent defense and promotion of Orthodox Christianity in Russia along with the support of family life and rejection of sinful perversions being imported into your country by western political factions.
    I admire your strength and fearlessness proclaiming obvious truth in the face of the global elitists. Bravo!
    Because of your outward support of Christianity, our Holy Father, Pope Francis has reached out to you over other world leaders as a voice of reason in an effort to promote a peaceful solution in Syria. I applaud the efforts of you both.

    My request to you , and reason for writing ,has to do with the apparitions of the Most Holy Mother of God in Fatima , Portugal almost 100 years ago .I’m sure you are aware of this event.
    Our Lady specifically requested that Russia , and Russia alone , be consecrated by the Pope to the Immaculate Heart of Mary along with all of the Bishops of the world, to avoid war and the annihilation of nations, and to obtain a promised period of peace .Russia would be the instrument for it’s own conversion and the leader for conversion of the world.
    it is not surprising to me that a man of your inclinations would be positioned perfectly to help facilitate the promotion of this consecration for world peace through the Immaculate Heart of Our Mother.
    Because you have a relationship with Pope Francis, I pray that you will request personally that the Holy Father perform this request from Heaven, and that it would be welcomed by the Russian people, as they love the Mother of God very much..
    Dear President Putin, the time is very late, and the Most Holy Trinity has given us this means, through Our Lady of Fatima to dispel the evils and conflagrations that are racing towards us at an unprecidented rate.Please act.
    God bless you,

  10. Josefa, that’s just beautiful.

    I wrote a draft which I haven’t sent, yet, pending critiques from some friends.

    Mine’s junk next to yours.


  11. If I may ask, Suzanne, would you give me permission to reprint your letter on the Facebook trad forums on which I posted my original remarks about this?

  12. Sure you can, but maybe leave my name out- that was an accidental printing!

  13. GPMtrad, in all likelihood we’ll net zilch, but we believe in miracles and a miracle is exactly what we are after. You articulate with clarity and precision, so just do it— without repeating background stuff. If Putin’s office gets a small flurry on the one subject, someone might relay our theme.
    Josefa, beautiful try.

  14. A friend shared these observations yesterday:

    The Russians will take offense, Brian. Orthodoxy permeates Russian culture, even those sectors of the population that consider themselves secular and unbelieving. The Russian State in general, and the Russian Orthodox Church in particular, still subscribe to their own notion of “manifest destiny” as defined in their dictum “Two Romes have fallen. The third stands. And there will be no fourth.” For centuries, the notion of “Holy Russia” has stood unshaken. Add to this firm belief the “bleakness” – I don’t know how else to call it – of the Russian character, a kind of dark fatalism and sense of victimhood that rose after the Tartar invasions, and then Napoleon’s, and then Hitler’s, and you get a national consciousness suspicious of anything coming from the West – or Mongolia, but Mongolia is no longer a factor.
    The Patriarch of Moscow will reply that Russia has been the Theotokos’ dowry since Prince Vladimir converted to Orthodoxy along with the entire Kievan Rus, and that no further consecration, even less one arising from the first, “fallen” Rome, is necessary.

    Putin, an authoritarian cleptocrat, needs the Russian Church to maintain social order and Russian national identity. He’s not going to alienate a political ally of the stature of the Patriarch. Putin will use the Church as a foil against the West and against internal enemies whenever he thinks is necessary to maintain his power and Russian national unity. That’s the way he is.

    It’ll take a miracle, Bri, like the Sun dancing over the Kremlin, to persuade all the Russian powerbrokers to go along with your suggestion. Fortunately, I do believe in miracles.


  15. Kopp, your friend is absolutely spot on. Although, with him, I hope my own read on the reasons behinds Putin’s recent remarks on Christianity might be at least make him somewhat more amenable to a Catholic project.

    This isn’t like writing a neat suggestion to the local newspaper editor and a way cool public initiative takes off.

    We’re dealing in centuries of embedded, bitter rivalry here. The kind of stuff where even angels fear to tread, I’m afraid.

    I just don’t know. I’m going to start a third draft, including some excellent ideas from a former military intel officer with up close and personal Russian experience.

    But, I’m still not totally convinced of the prospects.

    Nevertheless, it is a great “inspiration”, so to speak.

    • If it is somehow politically expedient for Putin (for instance, changing Vatican geopolitical alliance from Western Europe/North America to Russia) then I could see it happening. Putin is a lot like Constantine. He might not always do some of the things he does for the right reasons but some of what he does is the right thing to do.

  16. The Remnant put up a link to the blog, and some folks have left encouraging comments.

    Everything is in the Lord’s hands.

  17. Kopp’s friend will believe anything CNN teaches him.
    As an afterthought I just sent:-
    “Dear President Putin, Please ask the Pope to consecrate Russia by name on 13 October. Also ask him to declare the status of the 1969 rites for ordaining priests and bishops. If null and void, the Roman priestly hierarchy is a mirage and Pope Francis is no ordained priest or bishop, though he was validly elected pope. If he must admit that the radically different Roman rites are null and void, then Russia’s destiny becomes visible because no one doubts the validity of Russian holy orders. Please ask him publicly because he respects publicity, and because the Russian people, whose patriotism is saintly, would like to know.”

    Viva Michael Matt ! Kyrie Eleison !!

  18. Thank you Dr. Kopp for starting this.

    I have prayed and this is the letter that I am sending. I pray it may help a little and at the least do no harm. If any of it is of any use anyone may use any portion.


    Dear Mr. President,

    As a devout, traditional Catholic I am writing to you to extend my heartfelt thanks for your staunch defense of families and the traditional morals that make them possible and your defense of the innocent victims, most especially Christians, in the upheaval in the Middle East, most recently in Syria.

    I have observed with joy the resurgence of Christianity in an impressive series of actions taken on a variety of fronts within your country of late. It seems that Russia is rediscovering Holy Russia and their love for Our God and Our Blessed Mother. I am sure God will richly bless Russia’s effort to conform to His natural law.

    With all of this in mind I am writing to you today with a humble request.

    It is becoming increasingly clear to me that it is the intent of Heaven and Our Blessed Mother that Russia be the Champion of Theotokos.

    Russia’s devotion to Our Blessed Mother is ancient, strong, and deep. And while the other nations of Christendom are turning their faces away from the Light and crumbling as a result, Russia is turning back towards the Light.

    But as a great and devout Christian king is consecrated with Holy Oils to begin his reign, so must Russia be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of The Blessed Virgin to be born anew as the Champion of Theotokos.

    Heaven sent Our Blessed Mother and the Miracle of the Sun to Fatima nearly one hundred years ago to request the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin.

    Heaven did not ask for the world to be consecrated.

    Heaven asked that Russia be consecrated. Because Russia is to be Heaven’s Champion.

    It is late. We are all suffering, everywhere, because it is late.

    But Theotokos said it WILL be done.

    There is no greater mark you could make on history than to accomplish this Mr. President.

    Please, I humbly implore you, seek the Consecration of Russia.

    May God bless you and keep you.

    In Jesus through Mary,

  19. What grabbed me was that bulb flashing in Dr. Kopp’s head at 3am—and he responded !
    “a neglectu inspirationum tuarum, libera nos Iesu.” “from neglect of your inspirations, deliver us O Jesus.”

    Now all we need is just enough letters to attract an intermediary’s attention to our theme. So I just sent:-

    Dear President Putin, If you cause Pope Francis to admit the eradication of the Roman priestly hierarchy after 1969, you uncover the long hidden destiny of Russia’s valid priests and holy bishops to rebuild it, to succor and rebuild the dreadfully wounded One Holy Roman but also Apostolic Church of Peter the Rock immovable and of frantic humanity. Please ask him to consecrate Russia together with all validly consecrated bishops still in union with the Rock. All four of them? Ask him.
