Has the Consecration Requested by Our Lady of Fatima Been Made or Not?

In 1929, Our Lady of Fatima appeared to Sr. Lucia and asked that a special consecration be performed by the pope. Much hinged on this.

Multiple popes have performed acts similar to the one requested, but has any of them fulfilled what was requested in 1929?

If any have, how do we know?

What did John Paul II think? What about others at the Holy See? What about Sr. Lucia herself?

And—for non-Catholics and others not familiar with Fatima—what is all of this about, anyway?

These are among the questions we explore in this week’s episode of the Jimmy Akin Podcast!

Cistercian Father Thomas Esposito says of discerning one’s college choice, ‘There has to be something that tugs at you and makes you want to investigate it further. And then the personal encounter comes in the form of a visit or a chat with a student or alumnus who communicates with the same enthusiasm or energy about the place. And then that love of a place can be a seed which germinates in your own heart through prayer.’

Choose a College With a Discerning Mind and Heart

Cistercian Father Thomas Esposito, assistant professor of theology at the University of Dallas (UD) and subprior (and former vocations director) of the Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Dallas, drew from his experience as both a student and now monastic religious to help those discerning understand the parallels between religious and college discernment.
