In the year 2000, the Church officially confirmed that the collegial consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary had been fulfilled (Message of Fatima, vatican.va). In addition, the Vatican wrote:
“Sister Lucia personally confirmed that this solemn and universal act of consecration corresponded to what Our Lady wished (“Sim, està feita, tal como Nossa Senhora a pediu, desde o dia 25 de Março de 1984”: “Yes it has been done just as Our Lady asked, on 25 March 1984”: Letter of 8 November 1989). Hence any further discussion or request is without basis” (Message of Fatima, vatican.va).

Communal First Saturdays Apostolate and book endorsed by Fr. Calloway, MIC
“The Communal First Saturdays Apostolate is a gift to the Church! This apostolate is long overdue and a very necessary part of the message of Fatima. I highly recommend this apostolate and book [The Communal First Saturdays], and I have no doubt that Jesus and Mary are very pleased with it. May we all seek to make reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! ”
