FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS
Devotion requested by Our Lady of Fatima in reparation for sin.

On 10th December 1925 – eight years after the apparitions in Fatima – when Lucia was a novice with the Dorothean sisters in Pontevedra, Spain, Our Lady appeared to her with her heart in her hands. It was surrounded with thorns.
Speaking somewhat guardedly in 1927, (she was trying to spread the practice of the First Saturdays without speaking of the apparitions) Lucia wrote to her godmother:
“I would like to ask you to give me the consolation of embracing a devotion which I know is very pleasing to God and was asked for by our beloved Mother in heaven. As soon as I knew about it I wanted to practise it and get everyone else to do it too. It consists only in doing what is written on this holy picture: the confession can be made on another day but I think the fifteen minutes meditation is what will worry you the most although it is really very easy. Who cannot think about the mysteries of the Rosary? the Annunciation of Our Lady and her humility at her great exaltation, calling herself a slave; the Passion of Our Lord who suffered so much for love of us, and Our Lady near Jesus on Calvary? Who could not pass fifteen minutes with Our dear Lady thinking about these holy things?”
