Why Not First Saturdays?

Satan is engaged in a decisive battle with the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Church. In this battle, which Sister Lúcia describes emphatically as final, “either we are for God, or we are for the devil, there is no other possibility.”

Who is she that cometh forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in array?
Grant that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin, give me strength against thy enemies!

To arm us for this battle, God gives us two remedies,, the Rosary and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Sr. Lucia warns, “if you despise and repulse this ultimate means, we will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven, because we will have committed a sin which the Gospel calls the sin against the Holy Ghost.”

To be very clear, when Lucia said “We will not have any more forgiveness from Heaven”, that means there will be no mitigation, no easing, of the terrible Chastisement about to befall mankind. There are many, many prophesies about this, from the Apocalypse on down through the ages, But for now, our focus is Fatima. And in this, Our Lady of the Rosary could not be more clear:

“I will come to ask for the consecration of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If not, she [Russia] will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”
