November 7, 1917

It was on this date that the horror that was prophesied at Fatima, in Portugal came about. Today marks the beginning of the Bolshevik Revolution, a political revolution and a part of the Russian Revolution of 1917. It took place with an armed insurrection in Petrograd traditionally dated to 25 October 1917 (O.S.), which corresponds with 7 November 1917 New Style (N.S.). Thus the Russia began to spead error throughout which is still being felt today.

Invocation for the Conversion of Russia

Saviour of the world, save Russia.

An indulgence of 300 days (S.P. Ap., Nov. 24, 1924)

Prayer to Saint Theresa of the Child Jesus for the Conversion of Russia

O loving and compassionate Saint, deign to comfort our Russian brethren, the victims of a long a cruel persecution of the Christian name; obtain for them perseverance in the faith, progress in the love of God and of their neighbor, and in confidence toward the most holy Mother of God; prepare for them holy priests who shall make reparation for the blasphemies and sacrileges committed against the holy Eucharist; grant that angelic purity, especially in the young, and every Christian virtue may once more flourish amongst them, to the end that this noble people, being delivered from all slavery and returning freely to the one fold entrusted by the loving Heart of the Risen Christ to Saint Peter and his successors, may at length taste the joy of glorifying the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit in the fellowship of the holy Catholic Church. Amen.

If only John XXIII, Paul VI, or JP2 had made the consecration it all could have been avoided. Our Lady requests something, we should do it.
