Dear Dr. Eric you said:
Now I've read that Pius XII also consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Sister Lucia said it wasn't enough, that Russia had to be mentioned specifically. John Paul II repeated the same consecration that Pius XII performed and
If I recall correctly, at Fatima our Lady said that the Pope must consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart together with all the bishops of the world. The way I perceived it was that Pope Pius XII did not ask 'all' the bishops of the world to pray with him...so Lucia therefore said it was not enough. Of course this is what I gathered from everything I read...I might be wrong!
I also recall reading that Pope John Paul II asked not only the RCC bishops, but Orthodox bishops as well as all the religious leaders of the Protestants to pray with him.
Again I state that I might be wrong, and it might be merely my assumptions...but this is how I recall events.
