First Saturday reminder

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Today is the First Saturday of March and I hope many will be offering their Rosaries in reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary – keeping her company – pondering the mysteries of her life with Jesus.

It is sometimes asked why Our Lady asked for Communions of reparation on five first Saturdays, instead of some other number. Our Blessed Lord answered that question when He appeared to Sr. Lucia May 29, 1930. He explained that it was because of five kinds of offenses and blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, namely: blasphemies against her Immaculate Conception, against her perpetual virginity, against the divine and spiritual maternity of Mary, blasphemies involving the rejection and dishonoring of her images, and the neglect of implanting in the hearts of children a knowledge and love of this Immaculate Mother. (For more on this devotion see HERE)

So sorry for this late reminder, but I ran out of “computer time” this morning. Hopefully, even if you were unable to participate in Holy Mass and Holy Communion, you will be able to offer our Mother a Rosary prayed with great attention and devotion and spend 15 minutes in loving company with her. How we need to offer reparation for our sins and the sins of the world against her Immaculate Heart!
