Does Francis even believe in Reparation as called for at Fatima & was "Francis's Zero-tolerance Policy... merely a PR Stunt"?
"Look, my daughter, at my Heart encircled with thorns, with which ungrateful men wound it every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Give me consolation, you, at least; and announce for me that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all who on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, go to confession, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, WITH THE INTENTION OF MAKING REPARATION TO ME." - Our Lady of Fatima
Thomist scholar Dr. Taylor Marshall in his popular YouTube podcast apparently asked if the "Pope Francis Consecration [might be to] PACHAMAMA? tierra del cielo Controversy: What does it mean?":
Various versions of Pope Francis’ consecration of Russia and Ukraine (and the whole world) have an address to Tierra del Cielo, which oddly translates “Earth of Heaven.” Is this a title for the Blessed Virgin Mary or Pachamama? Dr. Taylor Marshall explores Latin and Byzantine texts for answers.

Has Francis ever talked about reparation as called for at Fatima?
In 2014, the liberal Guardian in the article "Don't believe the Pope Francis sexual abuse PR stunt. Believe in payback" showed one of the few times Francis spoke of reparation:
The most promising pope in the modern history of the Vatican had quite the audience this week: Francis spent two days with six people who were sexually abused by priests. He begged their forgiveness, of course, for "an ugly crime" perpetrated by a kind of "sacrilegious cult". That was pretty bold. But he also made a half-promise: "We must go ahead with zero tolerance", the pope said on the papal plane, adding that his church should "weep and make reparation"...
... The past is not just the past, as the church well knows, and if you want evidence that that Francis's zero-tolerance policy is merely a PR stunt, look back to the pope's time in Argentina.
Then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was closely involved in the case of Father Julio Cesar Grassi, who was sentenced to 15 years in prison after being found guilty of molesting a boy in his care. Details are murky, but Anne Barrett-Doyle, who runs the website Bishop-Accountability.org, which has tracked the case closely, told me this week that Grassi remained free on conditional release until September 2013, when his final appeal was rejected, at least in part because of a private report commissioned by Bergoglio that sought to prove Grassi's innocence and, according to Barrett-Doyle, to discredit the victims.
The convicted pedophile certainly considered the current pope to be a friend and supporter – Grassi told reporters before his conviction that his Holiness "never let go of my hand".
Was it a "sin of omission" that, of the victims granted an audience with the pope this week, none were from Argentina, where that dark cloud still hangs over Francis's apparent failure to protect children from predator priests during his tenure as archbishop? Does his Holiness tolerate ignoring victims from the developing world, where advocacy groups claim that clerical abuse is still being actively covered up and where the power differential between a predator priest and his victim is that much greater?

Reading the above Francis "PR stunt" call for "reparation" appears to make it important that a real battle cry for reparation be made against the soft wimpy mercy of Francis that "preaches that we can expect an unconditional mercy with no price to be paid whatsoever, with no obligations whatsoever" is needed.
Catholics who want to do real spiritual combat for Lent must do the Great Triad of the Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion of reparation to Jesus and for "mercy for sinners" instead of the wimpy
mercy of Francis that "preaches that we can expect an unconditional
mercy with no price to be paid whatsoever, with no obligations
- The weekly Holy Hour
- The monthly First Friday
- The annual Feast of the Sacred Heart
Jesus told St. Margaret Mary:
"[R]emain prostate with me an hour, not only to appease the divine anger by begging mercy of sinners, but also to mitigate in some way the bitterness which I felt at that time on finding Myself abandoned by My apostles."
(The Autobiography of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, Page 57)
1 - Personally consecrate oneself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and recite the Consecration Prayer daily [and reparation prayer] - For One Fold and One Shepherd.
2 - Participate in the Holy Mass and receive Holy Communion daily, if possible - For Reparation.
3 - Offer a Holy Hour once a week - For Reparation; and encourage others to do the same.
("Holy Hour of Reparation for One Fold and One Shepherd for Reparation for Sinners for Thanksgiving and for a Just Peace," Copyright 1945, Back inside cover)
Tradition in Action revealed that the Sacred Heart of Jesus is about spiritual combat and real combat:
"The Sacred Heart revealed to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque that He wanted His Sacred Heart “to reign in the King’s palace, to be painted on his standards and engraved on his arms, in order to render him victorious over all his enemies”. (5) In a later letter to her Mother Superior, Sister Margaret Mary revealed that the Divine Heart wished “to be the protector and defender of his sacred person [Louis XIV] against all his enemies visible and invisible. By means of this devotion He wants to defend him and make his salvation sure. … He will make all his undertakings redound to His glory by granting happy success to his armies.”
"Our Lord did not hesitate to ask that the symbol of His great love for man be painted on the arms of Catholic warriors. This is quite different from a number of today’s ecumenical ecclesiastics who never tire of asking pardon of the enemies of the Church for the use of Catholic arms in defense of the Faith. How would they explain that Our Lord even went so far as to guarantee His participation in the battles that the King of France should wage in the religious wars of the epoch and to request that His Heart be painted on the arms themselves? He promised victory to those Catholic warriors, offering His Heart as a support like a General who brings his troops an invincible new strategic weapon."
"Unfortunately, Louis XIV did not attend to the requests of Our Lord. Yet others did. These were the chouans, those glorious peasants of the Vendée and Bretagne who rose up against the French Revolution in 1793 to fight for the restoration of the Monarchy. On their arms they painted the Sacred Heart of Jesus and on their bodies they bore the badge of the Sacred Heart, popularized by St. John Eudes. Likewise, the Carlists with their red berets and battle cry of “Viva Christo Rey” in the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s put the emblem of the Sacred Heart on their rifles, revolvers, heavy arms and even their tanks."
Again, this is a battle cry to spiritual combat against the soft wimpy mercy of Francis that "preaches that we can expect an unconditional mercy with no price to be paid whatsoever, with no obligations whatsoever."
Make the first Friday of reparation for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and against the Satanic tyranny presently represented by COVID hysteria:
Tradition in Action explains that Jesus is merciful, but also because of original sin and when after baptism we sin which is an infinite crime He had to redeemed us by his infinite sacrifice on Good Friday. However, He requires that we in grace unite to His Redemption by doing penance and reparation for forgiveness of our sins and for others:
"In the images of the Sacred Heart, He points to this symbolic font of love and mercy for us. The devotions to the Sacred Heart always suppose reparation for our sins. We are sinners, we must make reparation. Despite the promises from Our Lord and the fact that He paid an infinite price for our Redemption, we must make reparation. We should always do penance for our sins and make various kinds of reparation."
"... the error of the [extreme Francis] Divine Mercy devotion. It preaches that we can expect an unconditional mercy with no price to be paid whatsoever, with no obligations whatsoever. This is not the message of Christ."
"Christ is merciful. Time and time again, His mercy pardons our repeated sins in the Sacrament of Penance, always taking us back no matter how bad our sins are. And what happens in the Sacrament of Penance? The very name of the Sacrament tells us exactly what happens: to be effective the Sacrament supposes penance. Not only are you there at the Sacrament recognizing your full submission to the Church and your dependence on the Sacraments for forgiveness, but you walk out of the confessional with an imposed penance."[https://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/f072_DivMercy.htm]
Say this reparation prayer every Friday:
Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, animated with a desire to repair the outrages unceasingly offered to Thee, we prostrate before Thy throne of mercy, and in the name of all mankind, pledge our love and fidelity to Thee.
The more Thy mysteries are blasphemed, the more firmly we shall believe them, O Sacred Heart of Jesus!
The more impiety endeavors to extinguish our hope of immortality, the more we shall trust in Thy Heart, sole Hope of mankind!
The more hearts resist Thy Divine attractions, the more we shall love Thee, O infinitely amiable Heart of Jesus!
The more unbelief attacks Thy Divinity, the more humbly and profoundly we shall adore It, O Divine Heart of Jesus!
The more Thy holy laws are transgressed and ignored, the more we shall delight to observe them, O most holy Heart of Jesus!
The more Thy Sacraments are despised and abandoned, the more frequently we shall receive them with love and reverence, O most generous Heart of Jesus!
The more the imitation of Thy virtues is neglected and forgotten, the more we shall endeavor to practice them, O Heart, model of every virtue!
more the devil labors to destroy souls, the more we shall be inflamed
with desire to save them, O Heart of Jesus, zealous Lover of souls!
The more sin and impurity destroy the image of God in man, the more we shall try by purity of life to be a living temple of the Holy Spirit, O Heart of Jesus!
The more Thy Holy Church is despised, the more we shall endeavor to be her faithful children, O Sweet Heart of Jesus!
The more Thy Vicar on earth is persecuted, the more will we honor him as the infallible head of Thy Holy Church, show our fidelity and pray for him, O kingly Heart of Jesus!
O Sacred Heart, through Thy powerful grace, may we become Thy apostles in the midst of a corrupted world, and be Thy crown in the kingdom of Heaven. Amen. [https://www.americaneedsfatima.org/Our-Lord-Jesus-Christ/act-of-reparation-to-the-sacred-heart-of-jesus.html]
