This might have already been treated laboriously earlier (but I'm new here, so what they hey!), but I've been wondering about disputes regarding the Third Secret and the Consecration. John Paul II was confident that he had performed the Consecration to Our Lady back in 2000, with the explicit mention of Russia sotto voce, and if I remember right, Sr. Lucia (who would be in a position to know, right?) said that "Heaven accepted it." Are there solid reasons for thinking the opposite to be true?
1/ There was no explicit (even sotto voce) mention of Russia.
2/ Even if the world (or anything else) was mentionned instead of Russia, of course Heaven "accepted it". Sr Lucia is right in saying so. Heavens had no reason to refuse it like certainly it accepted the Consecration I made of my kids to our Lady.
3/ There are at least a dozen of declarations of Sr Lucia to trustworthy witnesses from 1984 to 1989 who said that the JPII's 1984 Consecration wasn't properly made according to our Lady's wishes.
In 1989, Sr Lucia changed her mind and ambiguously said it was "accepted" by Heavens because she had been ordered so by her hierarchy.
The late Abbé Georges de Nantes was confided by the local bishop Do Amaral that he personnally had conveyed from the Vatican this strict order to Sr Lucy, who complied.
