One of the most important aspects of the Fatima message was Our Lady’s request for the First Saturday devotion. In the July 13, 1917 apparition at Fatima, Our Lady said to the children, “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart…I shall come to ask for the Communion of Reparation on the first Saturdays.” She came expressly with the request for this devotion when she appeared to Sister Lucia on Dec. 10, 1925, in Pontevedra, Spain, where she was preparing for religious life.
Once you have completed five consecutive First Saturdays, continue to practice the devotion monthly for the sake of obtaining graces for the salvation of other souls. Our Treasures of First Saturday Booklet offers an explanation of the blasphemies and a First Saturday Aid with meditations and prayers to help.
To help those who are just getting started with the First Saturday Devotion, the World Apostolate of Fatima, USA is beginning a new initiative. Keep scrolling to learn more!
Collect a stamp along the “way” each month and complete your passport. In addition to the inestimable value of the graces received from this devotion, as an incentive, we will draw names at our Oct. 13 event for prizes for those who have completed all 5 First Saturdays & submitted required proof.
Through your prayers and financial support, you participate in the World Apostolate of Fatima’s mission to help people learn, live and spread the message of Our Lady of Fatima in communion with the Church and in concert with the New Evangelization.
