This is truly something remarkable: 

This past Sunday an historic event occurred in Scotland. The bishops of the country, along with thousands of other Catholics, joined together to perform a Consecration of Scotland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. …Unique about the event was that four parliamentarians passed a motion that recognized the event. “That the Parliament recognises that Scotland’s Catholic bishops will consecrate the nation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on 3 September 2017; understands that the bishops will pray for Scotland at the Marian Shrine at the Carfin Grotto, near Motherwell, asking that Scotland be energised with a renewed desire to seek the truth, and understands that at the same time they will pray for all parliamentarians and government, so that they will play their part in building a true civilisation of love and strive to create a place where all people are valued, a place where poor, lonely and marginalised people are not forgotten, and a place where people are free to practise their faith.”

Read it all.
