"My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God."
-- Blessed Virgin Mary, Fatima 13 June 1917
What is devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM)?
Faithful, Daily Rosary
Frequent Meditation on the Mysteries of the Rosary (15 minutes minimum)
Communion of Reparation on the First Saturday of the Month
Prayers & Sacrifice for the Conversion of Sinners
Fulfill duties of your state in life, offering all to God in union with Jesus & Mary
Frequent Sacramental Confession, reflecting on offenses against the IHM
Frequent Adoration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament
Why 5 First Saturdays, not 9 or 7?
In an apparition to Sister Lucia in Tuy on May 29, 1930, Jesus replied: "My daughter, the reason is simple. There are five types of offenses and blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception
Blasphemies against her Virginity
Blasphemies against her Divine Maternity, in refusing at the same time to recognize her as the Spiritual Mother of all mankind
Blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in the hearts of children indifference, scorn, or even hatred of My Immaculate Mother
Offenses of those who outrage her directly in images
