If Francis really wanted true peace query as to why he doesn't simply consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? I wish that was a huge above the fold banner headline screaming across all of Rome's newspapers! It could read: "DO YOU REALLY WANT PEACE FRANCIS? CONSECRATE RUSSIA!"
Absolutely 100% right. It's that simple. God and Our Mother have given His Pope and His Bishops the simple and unfailingly efficacious way from Heaven to bring peace to the world, the conversion of nations, and the triumph of the Catholic Church. Until they do it, we will continue to suffer.
Well, as Our Lord Jesus has taught us, let us prepare for the crucifixion before the resurrection, for the dark night of sorrow before the victory on the morning of the Resurrection. Let us accompany Christ in His Sorrows this Holy Week, and try to obtain from Him the graces for the Pope and the Bishops to do their duty.
