The First Saturdays Devotion
Jesus & His Mother Made a Special Request for the First Saturdays
The First Saturdays Devotion, also known as the “Five First Saturdays” is a special request by Our Lord and Our Lady to make reparation for all the sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Our Lady promised personal salvation if we fulfill the five consecutive First Saturdays.
However, we should continue to fulfill them every month to console the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and make reparation for the sins of others.
The continued practice of the First Saturdays will help bring about a period of peace and the salvation of many souls as Our Lady promised (Fatima, July 13, 1917).
On December 10th, 1925, The Child Jesus and Mary came to Sister Lucia.
The Child Jesus spoke first saying:
“Have compassion on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother covered with the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to remove them with an act of reparation”.
What does the Child Jesus mean by “compassion”? Compassion is another word for “mercy”. In fact, the practice of mercy begins with having mercy on the Sacred Heart of Jesus who beheld our every act during His Passion and is in need of being consoled too.
Then, Our Lady said:
“My daughter, look at My Heart surrounded with the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me, and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation all those who on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, go to Confession and receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me”.
Four Practices in Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
We now know that in order to make reparation for these sins, we are asked to receive the, but we should not forget that Our Lady ALSO asked for other practices to be done to fulfill her request. The four practices that have to be fulfilled on the First Saturday, each with the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as Our Lady asked in 1925, are the following:
Receive Holy Communion*
Pray the Rosary*
Keep her company for 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary*
