About First Saturday Devotion
In 1917 Our Lady appeared at Fatima and requested what are now known as the First Saturday Devotions to make reparation for blasphemies and offenses against her Immaculate Heart and for world peace.
The devotion has four parts – all four should be made in a spirit of reparation for blasphemy and ingratitude and for peace in the world.
- Go to confession, generally eight days before or after the First Saturday of the month
- Receive Holy Communion on the First Saturday of the month
- Recite five decades of the Rosary
- Meditate for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary
There are great benefits for those who comply with this request. Our Lady told Sister Lucia she would “assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who on the first Saturdays of five consecutive months confess, receive Holy Communion, pray a rosary, and keep me company for a quarter of an hour meditating on the 15 mysteries with the intention of offering reparation.”
All of the above actions must be done with the intention of making reparation.
