“† In the Name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
“O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Mother of the Church and of each one of us. In response to Pope Benedict XV who in anguish on May 5, 1917, cried out to You in the name of the whole Church + asking You to show humanity the way of Peace; You came to Fatima on May 13, 1917, and subsequently on the 13th of June, July, August, September and October 1917. You returned as You had promised on June 13, 1929, and revealed that God asks for our act of Consecration of Russia to Your Immaculate Heart.
“You said at that momentous vision: ‘The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father to make and to command all the Catholic bishops of the world to make the Consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart, God promises to save Russia by this means.‘
“Ever mindful of the words of Jesus that ‘it is never too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary’ we now undertake to obey the Will of the Most Holy Trinity + revealed to us through Your words on that day in the Solemn Extraordinaryt Vision of the Most Holy Trinity + and of the Sacrifice of the Mass.
“We intend by the following ‘Act of Reparation and of Consecration of Russia to Your Immaculate Heart,’ to obey Your request in the manner that You, Our Most Dear and Holy Mother, have requested so that the peace that has been so long desired and which You promised, may be granted.
“We promise in gratitude to You and in reparation for all the sins committed in the past and present against Your Immaculate Heart to promote among all the faithful the pious devotion of the Five First Saturdays of Communions of Reparation to Your Immaculate Heart as You requested.
“We know that nothing happens to nations or individuals unless God wills or permits it. Our poor human race is engulfed by evils of every description including: the silent apostasy – which You Yourself foretold in the Third Secret – of whole continents of former Christendom due to the widespread loss of the Faith, unjust wars, murder of the unborn, unprecedented economic injustice fostering needless famine and pestilence, widespread divorce and immorality, unspeakable moral corruption among certain members of the clergy, and increasing persecution of the Church.
“We now turn to You, Our Dear Mother and Mediatrix of all Graces + You, Our Lady of the Rosary, Who art our only hope for overcoming the evils of our times and the approaching punishments, which we, sinful humanity, so justly deserve. Mindful that, without Your help, we cannot overcome these evils on our own, we now turn to You in humble supplication to beg Your help.
“You art the ‘Woman’ predicted in Sacred Scripture (Genesis 3:15), Who has the Commission from God + to crush the Serpent’s head, the head of satan, who is a murderer and a liar from the beginning. You art that same ‘Woman’ addressed by Jesus from the cross, and left to us as His last will and testament as Our Mother (John 19) – and You art indeed the same ‘Woman’ clothed with the sun, spoken of in Chapter 12 of the Apocalypse, and Who at Fatima was seen to be clothed with the sun. It is to You, to Your Immaculate Heart, that we consecrated Russia.
“We recognize that all authority comes from God +, and mindful of the authority God + has entrusted to us to ‘make disciples of all nations’ – we, the successors of the Apostles, engage our authority to consecrate a nation, Russia, to His service through that nation’s Consecration to Your Immaculate Heart.
We recognize that great crimes against God + have been committed in Russia, but also in all modern nations, to which Russia’s errors of secular humanism and practical state atheism have been spread.
Therefore, we offer on this day of prayer, reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the crimes of official State Atheism and official State Religious Indifferentism, and all the sacrileges and blasphemies that such Anti-Christian-State regimes in post-1917 Russia and all other modern nations have committed. We pray in fraternal solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Russia who have suffered so horribly, who in the past have been persecuted, tortured, imprisoned and killed under the Atheist Soviet Regime, and who still suffer under a secular humanist government which is not officially Christian.
“We pray that Russia be saved: that the Russian Orthodox Church and all other Christians in Russia, and indeed all Russians of goodwill, be brought miraculously and swiftly into complete unity of Faith with the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church of whom the one head appointed by Christ is the Bishop of Rome, and that Russia be made a vessel of divine election and of the fruitful spreading and implementation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, first throughout her own territory, and then throughout the world, thus bringing a period of peace, justice, prosperity, and the inestimable blessings of Faith and faithfulness to the entire world.
“We make this Consecration in response to God and to You, Our Blessed Lady, and in response to the millions of petitions made by the Faithful everywhere, particularly the requests for this Act of Consecration made by many of the Russian people, and even certain of her leaders, who indeed are close to our heart.
“And we, so that our fervent prayers for conversion of our generation to Jesus Christ the King and that the fervent prayers and aspirations of all the Faithful and in particular the Faithful of Russia may be heard, and to give to Thee, O Immaculate Virgin Mary, the testimony of our devotion and obedience, so now we, in a most solemn and public manner consecrate, and entrust all the people and social institutions of Russia to Thy Immaculate Heart, with the firm hope that soon, thanks to the all-powerful patronage of Thee, O Blessed Virgin Mary, the wishes which we form may be happily fulfilled, for a true peace, fraternal concord, and the liberty due to all, and in the first place to the Church.
“Thus by our prayer, united to Thine own and that of the whole Christian people, the Kingdom of our Savior Jesus Christ will be firmly established over all the earth: A Kingdom of truth and life, a Kingdom of holiness and grace, a Kingdom of justice, love and peace.
“And we suppliantly ask Thee, O Most Merciful Mother, to obtain from Thy Divine Son, Heavenly light for our minds and for our souls, the strength and courage by which, being supernaturally upheld, we all will be able to repulse and overcome all errors and impiety.
“O God +, Who didst will that at the message of an angel Thy word should take flesh in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary: grant that we, Thy suppliants, who believe her to be truly the mother of God, may be helped by her intercession with Thee. Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God +, world without end. Amen.
† In the Name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.”

Note: The actual prayer, distributed to the Catholic bishops across the world, would be in Latin (the universal language of the One True Faith).
The red cross “†” or the little red plus sign “+“, scattered at strategic places in the text, instructs the reader of the prayer to perform the ‘Sign of the Cross.’
Also note: the Consecration Prayer would be sent to each Bishop in Latin and it would be necessary for each Catholic Bishop to pray the Consecration prayer in that sacred tongue [the sacred language of the Church] and not in the vernacular/profane tongue of the diocese of which any particular Bishop is the head.
Also, any bishop who professes to be in communion with the Holy See in Rome but disobeys the instructions given to him in participating in this public prayer will, by virtue of that disobedience, be automatically excommunicated from the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and will be in a state of mortal sin with only the Holy Father alone to absolve. Should such man repent and do the penance given to him, once absolved, by the Pope, that man will be reunited to the Body of Christ but will forfeit his office of bishop and will need to serve the remainder of his life in contemplative prayer at a monastery chosen by the Holy Father.
