Five First Saturdays

From the Dominicans: Five First Saturdays Devotion of Reparation as requested by Our Lady of Fátima on July 13, 1917. Our Lady said: “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. In order to save them God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. I will come to ask for the Communion of Reparation.” On December 10, 1925, Our Lady returned with the Child Jesus and spoke to Sr. Lucia about true devotion of reparation to Her Immaculate Heart. Jesus spoke first: “Have compassion on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother, covered with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.” Then Our Lady instructed Lucia about the Five First Saturday devotions. On the First Saturday of Five Consecutive Months

  1. Make a Sacramental Confession [One can confess within 8 days of the First Saturday]
  2. Pray the Rosary (5 decades)
  3. Receive Holy Communion
  4. Keep Our Lady company for 15 minutes while meditating on the Mysteries of the Rosary

The Great Promise of Our Lady: “I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.”

“In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

    So grateful for Fr. Bill John and Fr. David at my parish who offer 1st Friday and Saturday Holy Masses…for all priests who continue to do so. Deo gratias!

    I was a full- grown adult before I found out that my parents had done countless “First Saturdays and Fridays” early in their life and marriage. My first question was “why didn’t you teach us (their children) to do that? A Foolish question, of course, because we hadn’t yet been born. Plus, raising eight children to be Catholic, tends to BE the prayer.
