How to Practice/Spread Devotion to the Immaculate Heart

"This simple consecration would suffice: 

'Immaculate Heart of Mary, I consecrate myself to thee.'"
("Are You Heeding Fatima?", p. 23, Imp. 1947)


Mary’s Peace Terms


Let us now develop more specifically the four-
point program of Mary’s ultimatum, her peace
terms to mankind. If we fulfill the demands of
these terms, then the promise will be verified:
There will be the conversion of Russia and longed-
for peace. We have this on the infallible word 
of Mary herself. Who can doubt that word?


Her peace terms are as follows.


1. Penance.


2. The recitation of the rosary.


*3. Devotion and consecration of Russia to her
Immaculate Heart.


4. Communion and reparation to her on five
consecutive first Saturdays.


Sister Lucy said that the danger of World War
III will disappear as soon as a sufficient number
of people are fulfilling the demands of Our Lady
of Fatima. How natural then to conclude that no
other apostolate is more necessary than a crusade
whose one objective is to get people to fulfill
Fatima. [...]


*How to practice and spread this devotion?

(To The Immaculate Heart of Mary)


1. Consecrate yourself by any formula to the 

Immaculate Heart of Mary. Such consecration

simply means your desire to honor her, to belong

to her, to obey her. This simple consecration

would suffice: "Immaculate Heart of Mary, I con-

secrate myself to thee."


2. In your homes have a picture or a painting
portraying the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Honor
it by aspirations throughout the day. Meditate
piously upon it. Recite your prayers before it.
On feast days of Our Lady burn a vigil light before
it. Adorn it with flowers.


3. Honor the Immaculate Heart on the first
Saturday of each month. Receive *Holy Com-
munion on that day in reparation for the indigni-
ties heaped upon Mary’s Immaculate Heart. Recite
and meditate upon the rosary.


*Note from TCW: If True Catholics ("the Church in eclipse") 
want the opportunity to be able to fufill the Five First Saturdays
devotion, they need to provide for their priests - which 
actually is their duty. See here.


4. Invoke the Immaculate Heart of Mary daily.


5. Spend yourself in spreading this devotion,
for upon it and Mary’s other requests depend the
peace and salvation of the world.


When will this be accomplished? Mary answers 

us through Sister Lucy: “When a sufficient num-
ber of people are fulfilling Our Lady’s requests.”
One of them is the establishment of devotion to

the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


To impress upon our hearts the necessity of this 

devotion, read the words of little Jacinta (shortly
before her death) to Lucy: “You must remain here
below to make the world know that Our Lord
wishes devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
established in the world. Tell everybody that God
gives graces through the Immaculate Heart of
Mary. Tell them to ask graces from her and that
the Sacred Heart of Jesus wishes to be venerated
together with the Immaculate Heart of His Mother.
Ask them to plead for peace from the Immaculate
Heart of Mary, for the Lord has confided the
peace of the world to her.” ...

I am not aware of other people, lay or cleric, in my country who are with the True Hierarchy. However, I want to fulfill the Five First Saturdays devotion. Would a Spiritual Communion suffice for Holy Communion in this case?

Hi. No, a Spiritual Communion would not suffice for receiving Holy Communion as part of the Five First Saturdays Devotion, Yet, it is a splendid idea to partake in, as you do as much of the requirements as possible.

This commentary says "If True Catholics want the opportunity to be able to fufill the Five First Saturdays devotion, they need to provide for their priests - which actually is their duty." I do give monthly, please provide mass locations. Thanks!

My family and I were watching a wind burst during Hurricane Ian today - and we all saw a gigantic pine tree fall down right in front of our house - onto the driveway. I then lit our blessed candle... we said prayers. All are safe... no property damage.
