The Holy Name of Mary

Today we honor the Most Holy Name of Mary, the Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and by His generous mercy, our Mother as well. We are her chosen children, who honor her, and we pray for mercy for those who choose not to know her; for Our Lord has entrusted us to her and so, to spurn the mercy and graces she offers is a sad mistake.

In 1930, Our Lord explained to Sister Lucia that the reason for Five First Saturdays of Reparation was there are five offenses to the Blessed Virgin. In addition to our First Saturdays devotion, the Litany to the Holy Name of Mary is a good way to make reparation.
