1st april 2017a

The observance of the first Saturday in honour of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is intended to make reparation to Her for the sins of mankind. This devotion was revealed by the Blessed Virgin to three children, Francisco, Jacinta and Lucia to whom she appeared at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. On June 13, 1917, Our Lady specifically stated in speaking to Lucia: “Jesus wants to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart.”

Our Lady repeated this in the July 13th apparition when, after the vision of Hell that was granted to the three children, she said: “You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculaimmaculate heart of maryte Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace.” Our Lady asks for reparation. “There are so many souls whom the Justice of God condemns for sins committed against me, that I have come to ask reparation;” reparation to this Heart for the sins of mankind,
“O my Jesus, I offer this for love of Thee, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. (Sacrifice Prayer)

The following First Saturday devotions in honouring the Immaculate Heart of Mary are recommended:

1. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
2. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
3. Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
4. Act of Reparation
5. The Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary
6. The Sacrament of Reconciliation

“Consecration to the Mother of God, is a total gift of self, for the whole of life and for all eternity; and a gift which is not a mere formality or sentimentality, but effectual, comprising the full intensity of the Christian life – Marian life.”
This consecration, the Pope explained, “tends essentially to union with Jesus, under the guidance of Mary.” Pope Pius XII
