In the July 1917 apparition, Our Lady of Fatima told Lucia “I shall come to ask... that on the First Saturday of every month, Communions of reparation be made in atonement for the sins of the world.” On Dec. 10, 1925, Our Lady appeared to Lucia with the Infant Jesus, who said “Have pity on the Heart of your Most Holy Mother. It is covered with thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to remove them with an act of reparation.”
Our Lady then spoke: “See, my daughter, my Heart encircled by thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. Do you, at least, strive to console me. Tell them that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation all those who, in order to make reparation to me, on the First Saturday of five successive months, go to confession, receive Holy Communion, say five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for a quarter of an hour, meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary.” All of which must be offered in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Join us on the first Saturday of each month at 4:30 pm in the Sanctuary, before the 5:00 pm Mass.
