Cardinal Ottaviani said in 1957: The Fatima secret has to be buried “in the most hidden, the deepest, the most obscure and inaccessible place on earth. If there was one dominant element to the Third Secret, it is Russia.”
“Medjugorje is the continuation and fulfillment of Fatima” the Queen of Peace at Medjugorje 1991
“Russia will come to glorify God the most, the West has made civilization progress, but without God and acts as if they are their own creator” The Queen of Peace, October 1981 six months after the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II
Have you ever wondered why Our Lady of Fatima singled out Russia, and only Russia, as a country destined by God for a great future, perhaps as the most Christian nation in the world?
Why would the Mother of God come to a lonely field in Portugal in 1917 and tell three shepherd children that Russia, which they had never even heard of, would soon become the first officially godless state in all of history? And why did God crown her appearances and validate her words with the most spectacular miracle since biblical times, the great Miracle of the Sun?
To this day it is a great mystery why Russia is so prominently mentioned by the Virgin Mary at Fatima and at Medjugorje. Catholic intellectuals have debated Russia’s role at Fatima for decades. Now, as we find ourselves nearing the 100 year anniversary the Fatima apparitions, Russia has re-emerged onto the world stage in a remarkable way.
Today, seemingly out of nowhere, Russia dominates television news headlines. There seems to be a relentless, attacking, pursuit of all things Russia by US Media and many members of the United States Congress. Here in the United States, it can be difficult to hear Russia’s side of the news narrative. We won’t go into all the details in this article but one area of interest that some readers will find surprising is the dramatic Christian renewal that is occurring in Russia right now – a Christian renewal with a strong devotion to the Blessed Mother.
We fundamentally believe the root cause of tensions between the West and Russia is a result of the shifting sands relative to faith.
Recently in Interfax-religion Metropolitan Hilarion of the Russian Orthodox Church compared Europe with the atheistic Soviet Union which lends more evidence to the unfolding prophecy of Russia’s sudden Christian revival.
“It is surprising that today Russian and European civilizations have exchanged their roles in a certain sense. The Soviet Union was the country of the official state atheism, while all of us perceived the West as the Christian region,”
According to Metropolitan Hilarion , now it is quite the contrary: faith and the Church are revived in Russia, new churches are being built, monasteries and theological schools are open, while “religiosity is decreasing in the West, churches are closed, some church buildings are just sold.”
“Secularism and atheism have in fact become a new ideology of the Western Europe. Certainly, the Church is not persecuted there the way it was persecuted here in the Soviet times when churches were blown up and destroyed. But ideology of modern secular Europe practically excludes the Church and religion from the public sphere, so you can be religious as a private person, but your religiosity should not influence your public role, your professional activities,” the metropolitan said.
He also believes that religious revival in Europe will go through “being drunk with freedom, with permissiveness and people will understand what it leads to and start coming back to their Christian roots.”
The Queen of Peace, at Medjugorje revealed an astonishing prediction about Russia to the six young visionaries on November 1, 1981.
In 1981 the Soviet Union was still very much an atheist state – at war with Christianity. The Pope was a real threat to the totalitarian regime. So much so that the Soviet Union planned to kill Pope John Paul II. The assassination attempt occurred on May 13, 1981, an anniversary date of the first appearance of the Virgin Mary at Fatima. One month after the attempt on the Pope’s life, the Virgin Mary began to appear at Medjugorje. Then six months after that the Virgin Mary spoke about the future of Russia. In a brief message to the visionaries, She said: “Russia will come to glorify God the most, the West has made civilization progress, but without God and acts as if they are their own creator”.

They could destroy the buildings, which they did, but they were not able to remove Christ out of the countless hearts of His Russian children. Let this be a lesson and a comfort to all Christian Europeans in this godless age in which the powers that be deliver us into the satanical abyss of radical islamic extremism and atheism combined.
The second secret was a statement that World War I would end, along with a prediction of another war during the reign of Pope Pius XI, should men continue offending God and should Russia not convert. The second half requests that Russia be consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pope Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world
