The Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays
Catholic brethren: heed the requests of our Lady for our times. Do not neglect our Mother’s wishes. Mary does not ask much of us in this crisis. Do the little that she asks for God’s greater glory and the salvation of souls.
The requests are these: pray one third of the Holy Rosary every day (five decades) and make the following devotion on Five First Saturdays consecutively. Do this in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Our Lady.
Every sin detracts from the glory of God. Reparation seeks to offer glory to God in penance for yourself and others. It also seeks to avert God’s wrath. Consider the prayer at the end of the Litany of the Saints:
O God, Who by sin art offended, and by penance appeased, mercifully regard the prayers of Thy people making supplication to Thee, and turn away the scourges of Thine anger, which we deserve for our sins.
Our Lady says that the Five First Saturdays are part of averting God’s wrath in our time.
2. Confession in the spirit of reparation
Remember your death. Consider the just judgment seat of Christ and confess before His tribunal.
Even if you cannot make it to confession on the First Saturday, at least your monthly confession can suffice.
3. Reparatory Communion
This is the central act of this devotion. Make your Holy Communion with proper preparation, fasting, and in a state of grace.
If you are prevented for a just cause, permission from a priest can dispense this to the Sunday Communion.
4. Recitation of one third of the Holy Rosary (Five decades)
Think about your death and make this the best Rosary before you die. Remember to offer it in a spirit of reparation.
5. 15-minutes of Mental Prayer
Consider, brethren, that this present crisis will soon be safely under the heel of our Lady. Only heed her requests so that God’s judgement will soon be accomplished. Then our children’s children’s children will tell the tale of how this crisis was averted by the Mother of God and many saints.
