First Saturdays Devotion

Updated: Dec 11, 2020


This devotion is honoring and consoling the Immaculate Heart of our Blessed Mother per her request at Fatima.


To those who faithfully follow Our Lady’s requests for the Five First Saturdays, she has made a wonderful promise: “I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation.”


Here’s how you do it:

On the First Saturday during 5 Consecutive Months, the Devotion consists of...

1. Going to Confession,

2. Receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion,

3. Saying five decades of the Rosary,

4. Meditating for 15 minutes on the mysteries of the Rosary.


We hope you’ll join us! We are beginning with our first month in December, so 12/5, in honor of celebrating Advent and a new church year! This means the dates that this devotion will take place are the following:

12/5

1/2

2/6

3/6

4/3

However, you can begin in any month!


Each first Saturday of the Devotion you then say this prayer to consecrate yourself to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

“Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.


Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.


O Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and Queen of the World, rule over us, together with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, Our King. Save us from the spreading flood of modern paganism; kindle in our hearts and homes the love of purity, the practice of a virtuous life, an ardent zeal for souls, and a desire to pray the Rosary more faithfully.


We come with confidence to You, O Throne of Grace and Mother of Fair Love. Inflame us with the same Divine Fire which has inflamed Your own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. Make our hearts and homes Your shrine, and through us, make the Heart of Jesus, together with your rule, triumph in every heart and home.


Amen.”


If you’ve already done this before, why not do it again?! Such a beautiful devotion!


"Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion, along with the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven." -Sr. Lucy (March 19, 1939)
