Consecration of Russia and Ukraine ‘a Radical Call’ to Personal Conversion, Says Vatican Cardinal

Daniel Ibanez/CNACardinal Piacenza, head of the Apostolic Penitentiary, celebrates Mass Nov. 1, 2020, at Rome’s Shrine of Our Lady of the Third Millennium at Tre Fontane.

Cardinal Piacenza said he was certain that the prayer of consecration would have an effect on the world tensions caused by the Russia-Ukraine war, though it might not be measurable by human criteria.
