The Five First Saturdays Devotion to The Immaculate Heart of Mary

On December 10, 1925, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Sister Mary (Lucy Dos Santos) of the Immaculate Heart: ‘See, my daughter, how my heart is encircled by thorns with which ungrateful men pierce me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me and announce that I promise to assist at the hour of death with the graces necessary for salvation all those who on the first Saturdays of five consecutive months confess, receive Holy Communion, recite part of my rosary, and keep me company for a quarter of an hour, meditating on its mysteries with the intention of offering me reparation.’
