then said to me:
"The moment has come in which God asks the Holy Father, in union with
all the Bishops of the world, to make the consecration of Russia to my
Immaculate Heart, promising to save it by this means. There are so many
souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me,
that I have come to ask reparation: sacrifice yourself for this
intention and pray."
I gave an account of this to the confessor, who ordered me to write
down what Our
Lady wanted done.
Later, in an intimate communication, Our Lord
complained to me, saying:
"They did not wish to heed my request!... Like the King of France*,
they will repent an do it, but it will be late. Russia will have
already spread her errors throughout the world, provoking wars, and
persecutions of the Church: the Holy Father will have much to suffer."
* In 1689, one year before her death,
Saint Margaret Mary tried by various ways and means to reach the 'Sun
King', Louis XIV of France, with a message from the Sacred Heart of
Jesus, with four requests: to engrave the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the
royal flags; to build a temple in His honour where He would receive the
homage of the Court: the King was to make his consecration to the
Sacred Heart; and he should pledge his authority before the Holy See to
obtain a Mass in honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
However, nothing was achieved. It seems that this message never even
came to the knowledge of the King.
Only a century later, the royal family would respond, in the measure
possible, to this message. Louis XVI, in 1792, conceived the idea of
his vow to the Heart of Jesus, but he could only carry it out in the
Temple prison, promising to fulfill all the requests communicated by
St. Margaret Mary, after his liberation. But, for Divine Providence it
was now late: Louis XVI was guillotined on 21 January 1793.
