The First Saturday Cenacles

The First Saturday Programs are shown on the first Saturday of each month in parish churches or homes to fulfill Our Lady of Fatima's specific requests.

Words of Our Lady of Fatima: to Sr. Lucia:   "My daughter, look at My Heart surrounded with the thorns with which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment with their blasphemies and ingratitude.  You, at least, try to console me, and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, go to Confession and receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."   

Each one hour program includes a beautiful, meditative Rosary with 15 extra minutes of pictorial meditation on the mysteries, and a reminder to go to Confession.  Pope John Paul II and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta are featured and a special guest teacher speaks on topics which will increase devotion to Jesus through Mary, while deepening the participants knowledge of the truth.  

The Promise and History of the First Saturday devotion

Pope John Paul II wrote in his book, Crossing the Threshold of Hope:  "And thus we come to May 13, 1981 when I was wounded by gunshots fired in St. Peter's Square.  At first I did not pay attention to the fact that the assassination attempt occurred on the exact anniversary of that day that Mary appeared to the three children at Fatima and spoke to them the words that now, at the end of this century, seem to be close to their fulfillment."

Our Lady promised an Era of Peace and that she would assist souls who practice the First Saturday devotion with the graces necessary for their salvation at the hour of their death - if they follow the simple plan she outlined at Fatima (approved apparition of Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal 1917).
