(2Ki 13:20-21) And
Eliseus died, and they buried him. And the rovers from Moab came into
the land the same year. And some that were burying a man, saw the
rovers, and cast the body into the sepulchre of Eliseus. And when it

VIA EMAIL FR. IANNUZZI: In the link below you will read Card. Burke's statement that requires necessary clarification that I hope to provide below.
First the Cardinals' recent statement:
“Certainly, Pope Saint John Paul II consecrated the world, including
Russia, to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984,” said
Cardinal Burke. “But, today, once again, we hear the call of Our Lady
of Fatima to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart, in accord with
her explicit instruction.”
While Card. Burke wisely affirms that the 1982 consecration of Russia
to the IHM was indeed done, as one cannot rebut Sr. Lucia's words of it
having been done and accepted by Mary, as well as the many good fruits
in Russia pursuant to it, the good cardinal does might consider the
following distinction, i.e.,
A person consecrating someone "for the purpose of converting that
person to the Christian faith" is one thing (which was requested by Our
Lady of Fatima re. Russia to her Immaculate Heart which, as Card. Burke
admits, was accomplished in 1984); to re-consecrate that person "after
they have converted" (which Card. Burke is calling for "again") is
quite another matter, as it does not have as its purpose that person's
conversion, but rather ongoing growth in the faith.
