Spreading the First Saturdays & the Communal First Saturdays
On February 15, 1926, in referring to the First Saturdays in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Child Jesus said to Sr. Lucia:
“Have you spread throughout the world, that which the Heavenly Mother requested?”
We can understand this question to ask whether we ourselves have spread the First Saturdays. Please help us answer Jesus’ question.
Please also see what Sr. Lucia said about spreading the First Saturdays:
War or Peace of the world depends upon the practice of this devotion joined with the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Hence I would want it spread, and, above all because it is the desire of our good Lord and our so dear mother in heaven…(Documents on Fatima & the Memoirs of Sister Lucia by Fr. Martins & Fr. Fox, 2002, p. 367; emphasis ours).
Our Lady promised to [hold back] the scourge of War if this devotion were spread and practiced. We will see her warding off this chastisement in the measure people will take the pain to spread the devotion, although I am afraid we are not doing as much as we could and God, not too happy, might raise his arm of Mercy and let the world be destroyed by this punishment, which as never been before shall be, horrible, horrible (Documents on Fatima & the Memoirs of Sister Lucia by Fr. Martins & Fr. Fox, 2002, p. 368; emphasis ours).
Things you can do:
- Fulfill the five First Saturdays to obtain Our Lady’s promise for yourself and for the benefit of others. Continue to fulfill the First Saturdays for salvation of souls and peace in the world.
