Bishop James Golka to join Pope Francis in consecrating Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25

COLORADO SPRINGS. Bishop James Golka issued the following statement in response to Pope Francis’ announcement that he will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

“On Friday, March 25, during the Celebration of Penance at St. Peter’s Basilica at which he will preside at 5 p.m. Rome time, Pope Francis will consecrate Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The same act, on the same day, will be carried out in Fatima, Portugal, by His Eminence Cardinal Krajewski, Apostolic Almoner, as envoy of the Holy Father.

As Bishop of Colorado Springs, I want to thank those of you who have reached out encouraging our diocese to participate in this important prayer. I invite everyone to join me in the prayer of consecration on March 25 at 10 a.m. on the west side of the cathedral in front of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

I also encourage all the people of our diocese to pray in support of this intention. Together we seek the intercession of the Blessed Virgin through her Immaculate Heart to bring conversion and peace to this troubled part of our world.  We know that Mary intercedes for us and for the whole world.  We know that her desire is to lead us all deeper into the love and communion with her Son, Jesus. 

One way that each of us can prepare for this prayer is to participate in the Novena to Our Lady of Fatima from now until March 25.  The novena can be found here:  https://www.praymorenovenas.com/novena-our-lady-fatima#

Together let us continue to pray for peace in our world and in our families.”
