“I SHALL COME TO ASK FOR…THE COMMUNION OF REPARATION ON THE FIRST SATURDAYS”
At Fatima, during the apparition of July 13th, 1917, the three visionaries were shown a vision of Hell. Our Lady told the visionaries that ‘I shall come to ask for …the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays’. As promised, Our Lady came to request the Reparation of First Saturdays eight years later, in 1925, when Lucia was 18 years old and now a postulant in a convent at Pontevedra, Spain.
The First Saturday devotion is a crucial part of the message of Fatima and Our Lady’s plan for peace in the world.
Our Lady came to Lucia with the Child Jesus and asked us to do 4 things, for 5 consecutive months, with the intention of making Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
– To Confess one’s sins to a priest (within 8 days before or after)
– To Receive Holy Communion
– To Recite at least 5 decades of the Rosary
– And to keep Our Lady company for 15 minutes while meditating on the 15 mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
