Got this email from LSN. A similar link seems to be here.

Please sign. This initiative is very good and well worth supporting.

Only the Successors of the Apostles, our Episcopal Shepherds, can save the Church.

The Church is suffering as never before. Confusion is rampant and division is rife.

Many eminent and orthodox Catholic thinkers believe that a large part of the problem is the failure of many Bishops to forcefully speak the truth of Christ, in and out of season, without counting the cost.

Now, the Lepanto Foundation is launching an appeal to all of the Bishops of the world, encouraging them to be Faithful Shepherds...faithful, first and foremost to the precepts of Christ, His Church and the traditions of our Holy Faith.

Please SIGN this urgent petition. CLICK HERE.

Silence, on the part of the world’s Bishops, is no longer an option!

LifeSiteNews and LifePetitions fully support and endorse the Lepanto Foundation’s appeal to our Bishops.

But, we are UPPING the ante!

Along with SIGNING the petition to the Bishops of the world, we are ALSO calling on faithful Catholics to CONTACT their OWN Bishops, to encourage them to boldly speak-up when issues of faith and morals are at stake.

When you CLICK on the link below, you will have a chance to SIGN the petition...and, you can learn more about how to approach your own Bishop.

For those of us who love our Mother, the Church (Bishops, priests, and laity included), is it not time for this kind of POSITIVE action?

So, when you approach your Bishop, or any other Bishop, just remember that there are still many, many good and holy Bishops - probably the vast majority - who believe in, and love, the precepts of the Faith...but, who are afraid or lack confidence.

Our goal - by contacting them, around the world, and in your home diocese - is not to browbeat or belittle them, but to encourage them in their love of Christ and His Church.

So, please SIGN the petition by clicking here, and, then, please COMMIT to contact and encourage your own Bishop.

Thank you in advance, and may God reward you for encouraging His Shepherds.

Yours faithfully,
Scott Schittl and the whole team at LifeSiteNews and LifePetitions

P.S. - When you SIGN this petition, an email will be sent to the various Bishops’ Conferences around the world - using the very words of the appeal* by our friends at the Lepanto Foundation, calling on the Bishops to shun human respect and careerism in favor of boldly daring to proclaim the truths of the Catholic Faith.

P.P.S. - After you have SIGNED and SHARED the petition, please consider CONTACTING your own Bishop.
Please Consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart daily, especially in the Sacred Month of August: Do never secede for any pretended reason from the Pope and the Bishops, and pray and work for the Pope and the Bishops to Consecrate Russia one day, as they infallibly will quite soon. Consecrate Russia yourself in Communion and in Union with the Pope and Bishops. Please consecrate aborted babies every day. You can save unborn children with every prayer for their Baptism that you say and help efficaciously end terrible abortion-killing worldwide.

Mary, our Heavenly Mother, implores those who receive Holy Communion Daily, or at least Weekly, to Offer their Lives. TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted and pluralized: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. For all the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for Priests, Nuns and Monks, for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, and for All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen." https://marianapostolate.com/life-offering/ Please pray this daily and you and your family will be saved. You will avoid Purgatory.

A simple effective way for thousands of us to save millions of souls. Please also offer the Precious Blood of Jesus' Heart to the Eternal Father, and our Lives in Sacrifice in Union with It, and with Mary's Immaculate Heart, that Jerusalem may be saved, Judah be restored, and the Jews may at long last happily be returned to saving Faith in Jesus Christ.

I signed the petition earlier today.
Like John Vennari (RIP) said "Why not just do it?  What would it hurt?"
Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (PETITION)

"We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete." Benedict XVI May 13, 2010

"Tell people that God gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Tell them also to pray to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for peace, since God has entrusted it to Her." Saint Jacinta Marto

The real nature of hope is “despair, overcome.”

They are part of the crisis as well. Why would they want a petition against themselves?

Signed! Thankfully the Bishop in the Diacese I attend has been very good already in addressing this.
