The First Saturday Devotion to
the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Now that the
world is at the edge of the abyss, it is more important than ever to
wield the Power of Prayer. No one can stop what awaits humanity, BUT,
its intensity may be greatly reduced through prayers and acts of
INTRODUCTION / BACKGROUND / DETAILS
The observance of the first Saturday of five consecutive months in
honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is intended to make reparation
for the offenses, knowingly or unknowingly, committed against Her Most
The request for this devotion was
revealed by Our Lady of the Rosary to Bl. Francisco, Bl. Jacinta and
Lucia, to whom she appeared at Fátima, Portugal, in 1917. On
June 13,1917, Our Lady clearly said to Lucia:
Jesus wishes to make use of
you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world
devotion to my Immaculate Heart. 
Our Lady repeated this in the July 13th
apparition when, after the vision of Hell that was granted to the three
little shepherds, She said:
You have seen Hell, where the
souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the
world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done,
many souls will be saved and there will be peace.
She wishes that, as we endure the
inconveniences, suffering and heart aches of our daily life, we offer
them up accompanying them by the following praying:
O my Jesus, I offer this for
love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the
sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The First Saturday Devotions
Regarding the First Saturday devotions,
which are efficacious in honoring and making reparation to the
Immaculate Heart of Mary, She instructed us thus:
I promise to help at the hour
of death, with the graces needed for salvation, whoever on the First
Saturday of five consecutive months shall:
1. Confess and Receive Holy
2. Recite five decades of the Holy Rosary.
3. Keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the
mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.
She clarified to Sr. Lucia at a later
time that the Sacrament of Reconciliation could take place up to eight
days before the Saturday in question as long as the soul remained in
the Sate of Grace for the Communion with God.
Brothers and sisters, it is never
too late to start!
