First Saturday Devotions : Communions of Reparation
With the intention of making reparation for offenses committed against The Immaculate Heart of Mary:

Go to Confession.
Receive Holy Communion worthily.
Pray five decades of the Rosary.
Keep Our Lady company for 15 minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary.

Our Lady promised to assist all those who would practice the devotion on the first Saturday of five consecutive months with the graces necessary for salvation at the hour of their death.
The Five First Saturday Devotions are in reparation for offenses to Our Lady's Immaculate Heart.
There are 5 ways in which people offend and blaspheme against The Immaculate Heart of Mary:

  1. Offences or blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception – its denial and/or ridicule.
  2. Against Her perpetual virginity – that She had relations with Joseph and had other children.
  3. Against Her Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept Her as Mother of all Mankind – denying that She is the Mother of God and our Mother.
  4. The implantation into children’s hearts of indifference, contempt and even hate against our Immaculate Mother.
  5. Insults directed against Her sacred images –displays of indifference or ridicule, and the infliction of damage to them.
