The Five First Saturdays

(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2018

March 6, 2018

Dear Family of Mary!

“…Oh, apostles of my love, how much my motherly heart loves you. How many things I desire to teach you. How my motherly heart desires that you be complete…” (March 2, 2018)

Our Lady is our Mother. She really is. Jesus gave her to us from the Cross. She is our Mother!

Last Saturday (March 3) was First Saturday. The 5 First Saturday devotion is such a blessing. Lucia of Fatima received this request. Here is a very brief description of the devotion:

The “Five First Saturdays Devotion.”

The Blessed Virgin Mary said she would “assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation,” all those who fulfilled the Five First Saturdays Devotion.

There are 4 things you must do -and you must do each of them on the First Saturday of 5 months in a row:

1.Go to Confession
2.Receive Holy Communion
3.Pray 5 Decades of the rosary
4.”Keep her company” for 15 minutes by meditating on the mysteries of the rosary with the intention of offering reparation to her. This is a separate prayer time from praying the rosary, though.

This devotion seems so simple, but it becomes a great desire for those who practice it. I received a witness from one of our shipmates about her completion of the Five First Saturdays Devotion just this past weekend:

Today I finished my fifth First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
No more eternal hell for this kid.

How grateful I am… but not grateful enough. I asked the Blessed Mother before going up to Communion today if She would receive Jesus for me and be thankful for me because I know alone I can’t give Him all that He deserves. I knew for certain at that moment that She always has been thankful for me when I could not be.

My whole life She has been there. Not a moment have I been alone.

When I meditated for 15 minutes on the rosary all I could think of was…

First mystery: She said yes for me.
Second mystery: She gave thanks for me.
Third mystery: She let me kiss Baby Jesus and brought Him over to me.
Fourth Mystery: She presented me to the Father.
Fifth mystery: She found Jesus for me when I lost Him.

She not only was with me during all the suffering in my life but also suffered along with me.

She holds me in Her arms.
Teaches me to pray to the Holy Spirit.
Never did She die and leave me.
She is Queen of all of me.
And I am Hers forever.

Really – I have the thought that She makes everything I offer perfect for Jesus -that way I don’t have to worry about my weakness, I can forget myself and just be radiantly joyful.

She connects me to the love between the Father and the Son. I am very much welcomed and a part [of them], forever.

Well, who wouldn’t want such graces and fruits as these! Every First Saturday is a great opportunity to draw closer to Our Lady, make reparation to her heart for all the disrespect and faithlessness directed towards her, and meditate on Our Lady’s mysteries. She has always been Our Mother, Mother for each one of us! We are so blessed.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
