Why Five Saturdays?
Sister Lucia’s confessor questioned her about the reason for
the five Saturdays asking why not seven or nine. She answered
him in a letter dated June 12, 1930. In it she related about a
vision she had of Our Lord while staying in the convent chapel
part of the night of the twenty-ninth to the thirtieth of the
month of May, 1930. The reasons Our Lord gave were as follows:
- The five first Saturdays correspond to the five kinds of offenses and
blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
a. Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception
b. Blasphemies against her virginity
c. Blasphemies against her divine maternity, at the
. .same time the refusal to accept her as the Mother of all men
d. Instilling , indifference, scorn and even hatred towards this
. .Immaculate Mother in the hearts of children
e. Direct insults against Her sacred images
Let us keep the above reasons firmly in our minds.
Devotions have intentions attached to them and knowing them
adds merit and weight to the practice.
I read somewhere, "Devotions promote the faith of the people."
Please. let us praise God for the Beauty. Truth and Love of our Catholic Faith.
Peace and Love
