Scottish Bishops Consecrate their Country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

On Sunday Scotland's bishops gathered in the rain with thousands of their countrymen to consecrate their country to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Here is the text of the consecration:
We consecrate Scotland to you: all that we have, all that we love, all that we are. To you we give our minds and hearts, our bodies and souls. We willingly place at your service our homes and our families, our parishes and schools: we desire that all that is in us and around us may belong to you, O Mary, and may share in the benefits of your motherly care.

Let us pray that all the bishops in all the nations of the world carry out such a consecration for the conversion of the world. Read more about the consecration here.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the bishops of every country did the same?

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the Holy Father actually obeyed Our Lady and prayed with the bishops for the conversion of Russia? October 17 is the 100th anniversary of Fatima and the miracle of the Sun, displayed so all would see and believe.

October 13th is the anniversary. Interesting that it falls on a Friday. What the world considers a bad luck day is a glorious anniversary for believing Catholics -- a day to thank Our Lady for always interceding for us with a mother's heart.
