In 1917, Our Lady of Fatima told Sister Lucia that she desires us to
observe the Five First Saturdays in honor of the Immaculate Heart by:
1. Confess and recieve Holy Communion
2. Recite five decades of the Rosary
3. And keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the Mysteries
of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me.
When we observe the Five First Saturdays, we are to console her Immaculate Heart,
and to make reparation for all the blaspehemies and ingratitude of men.
Act of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
O Most holy Virgin and our Mother, we listen with grief to the complaints of your
Immaculate Heart surrounded with the thorns placed therein at every moment by the blasphemies and ingratitude of ungrateful
humanity. We are moved by the ardent desire of loving you as our Mother and of promoting a true devotion to your Immaculate
We therefore kneel before you to manifest the sorrow we feel by the grievances that
people cause you, and to atone by our prayers and sacrifices for the offenses with which they return your love. Obtain
for them and for us the pardon of so many sins. Hasten the conversion of sinners that they may love Jesus and cease
to offend the Lord, already so much offended. Turn your eyes of mercy toward us, that we may love God wilh all our heart
on earth and enjoy him forever in heaven.
