First Saturday Devotion

I think I am going to try the First Saturday Devotion, recommended by Our Lady when she appeared to the little children in Fatima, Portugal back in 1917.

Our Lady has promised to us that she will help at the hour of death (with the graces need for salvation) whoever on the first Saturday of 5 consecutive months shall:

1. Confess their sins.
2. Receive Holy Communion.
3.  Recite all 5 decades of the Holy Rosary.
4.  Keep company with Mary for 15 minutes while meditating on the 15 Mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to her.

So this is what I shall try to do in the months of September, October, November, December, and January!  Please pray that I stick with it!
