REMINDER. Saturday, September 6th, First Saturday Devotion for Reparation of Blessed Virgin Mary.

 Archbishop Sample Consecrated the Archdiocese of Portland to Our Lady of Fatima.  Let's join him this Saturday. 

Join the Archdiocese of Portland on these Saturdays- July 5,  
Aug. 2, Sept. 6, Oct. 4 and Nov. 1, 2014.

These are suggested, but any five will bless our soul.
The Faithful are asked to:

1. Receive Holy Communion

2. Go to Confession within eight (8) days after receiving Holy Communion.
3. Pray the Rosary
4. Meditate for 15 minutes on a mystery of the Rosary.

All of these actions should be offered for the Intention of making Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The Blessed Mother promised that for those who do this on the First Saturday of five consecutive months, she will assist them at the Hour of Death with all the Graces necessary for Salvation.

Five - First Saturday Devotions to Mary? Why?

He explained that it was because of five kinds of offenses and blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, namely:

1. blasphemies against her Immaculate Conception,
2. against her perpetual virginity,
3. against the divine and spiritual maternity of Mary,
4. blasphemies involving the rejection and dishonoring of her images,
5. and the neglect of implanting in the hearts of children a knowledge and love of this Immaculate Mother.

(A holy card of Our Lady of Fatima in the home will remind us of this Consecration of our Archdiocese.)

I have talked to a lot of people who for whatever reason have trouble doing this five first Saturdays for 5 consecutive months. But it seems that once a person tries it they just cant stop until they get it right. The more I think about it the more I think this is Our Mother's maternally sneaky little way to get us continually doing what we should be doing anyways.
