MENZINGEN, Switzerland (LifeSiteNews) — The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) said on March 19 that it supports Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The consecration is scheduled to take place on March 25, and Pope Francis has asked all bishops to participate.

“After a long wait, punctuated by fervent crusades and assiduous recitation of rosaries, the Society of Saint Pius X is happy to see the request of Our Lady of Fatima taken into account, which called for a solemn act by the Pope in union with all the bishops,” the SSPX said in a statement from its General House.

“The Society of Saint Pius X places its trust more than ever in the recitation of the rosary and in the practice of penance,” the SSPX stated. “It prays in a special way for peace in the world, ever more convinced that nations will only find concord by a true conversion to Christ the King, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”
