The Great Promise of Our Lady of Fatima
Our Lady appeared at Fatima in 1917 to three little children, Lucia, Francisco and Jacinta, to warn the world, but also to bring a message of hope: “Finally my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”
In 1925 Our Lady appeared to Sister Lucia, rested one hand on Lucia’s shoulder, while in the other hand she held a heart surrounded with thorns. Then Our Lady said to Lucia:
“Look, my daughter, at my Heart surrounded with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me 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 the graces necessary for salvation, all those who on the first Saturday for five consecutive months,
- go to Confession,
- receive the Holy Communion
- recite five decades of the Rosary
- keep me a company for 15 minutes while meditating of the mysteries of the Rosary, with intention of making reparation.”
This is how the Five First Saturday devotion came about. Our Heavenly Mother gave it to Sister Lucia, encouraging the faithful to pray the Rosary more and more, meditating on it and receiving the Sacraments of the Confession and the Eucharist.
Let’s not forget that Our Lady and Our Lord Jesus are hurt every single moment by countless sins.
We encourage you to start this devotion, it is fine and purifying for our soul, and it helps to console Our Heavenly Mother.
Remember this divine formula: 5 First Saturdays= Confession+ Mass & Eucharist +Rosary & 15.min Meditation+Intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
