The First Five Saturdays devotion is also called the Act of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary. During the apparitions at Fatima, our Blessed Mother asked Lucia that Russia be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart through this devotion. Lucia also received another vision several years later to do this devotion in reparation for the atonement of sins.
The devotion is to be practiced on the the first Saturday of five consecutive months. To practice the devotion, on each Saturday you should
- Go to confession
- Receive Holy Communion
- Say five decades of the rosary
- Spend fifteen minutes meditating on the rosary
A special grace of this devotion is that Our Lady will be present at the hour of death with the grace of final perseverance.
