(LifeSiteNews) — In this Friday edition of The John-Henry Westen Show, I was joined by author and LifeSite journalist Kennedy Hall for a brief discussion on the consecration of Russia.

Hall, who previously worked at the Fatima Center, said he believes Fr. Nicholas Gruner “made a lot of predictions that came true,” and that it seems his prediction of Pope Benedict XVI’s successor consecrating Russia is another one of them.

We also discussed the confluence of factors that led up to Pope Francis’ decision to consecrate Russia and invite the bishops to join him.

“This is the age of blind obedience, which is not good. This is why we have so many issues in the Church,” Hall said. “But the thing is, the bishops of the world love to be on Pope Francis’ good side to a fault. Pope Francis is doing something, and for them, it looks real good if they jump right on it. So maybe this combination of the Ukraine virtue-signaling plus this obedience in the Church … it might just be a fruitful time for exactly what Our Lady asked for to happen.”

Listen to the rest of the episode below and have a great weekend!
