Saturdays. Historical dates Fatima. First Saturdays Devotion of First Saturdays

Fatima. Revelation at Tuy (1930-05-29)

On May 29, 1930 Father Jose Bernardo Goncalves received Sister Lucia’s letter about revelation of Our Lord and His requests. Letter informed that the two requests from Our Lord for the consecration of Russia and the devotion of reparation, were to be addressed, together, to the Holy Father himself.

On the same day Father Goncalves wrote a list with well-defined questions which was immediately given to Sister Lucia:

Questionnaire of Father Goncalves

Please answer, as far as possible, on a sheet of letter paper, the following questions:

1. When, how and where, in other words, the date (if you know it), the occasion and the manner in which the Saturday devotion was revealed to you.

2. The conditions required, meaning what is asked for in the accomplishment of this devotion.

3. The advantages: what graces are promised to those who will practise it at least once?

4. Why five Saturdays and not nine, or seven, in honour of Our Lady’s Sorrows?

5. If the conditions cannot all be fulfilled on Saturday, can they be fulfilled on Sunday? People in the country, for example, very often cannot do so (on Saturday), because they live far away …

6. In relation to the salvation of poor Russia, what do you desire or want?

The Revelation of Our Lord to Sister Lucia on May 29, 1930

That year May 29 was the Feast of the Ascension, therefore it was Thursday. On the evening Lucia made her usual holy hour of adoration. She besought and got from the Sacred Heart of Jesus all the instructions necessary to answer the questions she had been asked.

It is in this revelation Our Lord explained to Lucia, why do we need to consecrate exactly "Five Saturdays".

While staying in the chapel with Our Lord part of the night, between the 29th and the 30th of this month of May 1930, and speaking to Our Good Lord about questions 4 and 5, I felt myself being more possessed by the Divine Presence, and if I am not mistaken, the following was revealed to me:

“My daughter, the motive is simple: there are five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
       The blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
       The blasphemies against Her Virginity.
       The blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept Her as the Mother of all mankind.
       The blasphemies of those who try publicly to implant in children’s hearts indifference, contempt and even hate against this Immaculate Mother.
       The offences of those who insult Her directly in Her sacred images.
Here, my daughter, is the reason why the Immaculate Heart of Mary made Me ask for this little act of reparation and, in consideration of it, move My mercy to forgive those souls who had the misfortune of offending Her. As for you, try incessantly with all your prayers and sacrifices to move Me to mercy toward those poor souls.”

Complete Set of Answers

Sister Lucia wrote to Father Goncalves a long letter, which was received on June 12, 1930:

After asking for the assistance of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, I will answer as well as I can the questions that you asked me, concerning the five Saturday devotion.

THE PONTEVEDRA APPARITIONS

1. When?
On December 10, 1925.

How?
Our Lord appeared to me as well as the Blessed Virgin, showing me Her Immaculate Heart surrounded by thorns, and asking for reparation.

Where?
At Pontevedra (Travessia de Isabel II). The first apparition (took place) in my room, the second by the gate of the garden where I was working.

2. Required conditions?

For five months every first Saturday,
       receive Holy Communion,
       say the Rosary,
       keep Our Lady company for fifteen minutes
       while meditating on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary, and
       go to confession with the same goal in mind. Confession can be made on another day, as long as one is in the state of grace when one receives Holy Communion.

3. Benefits or promises?

“To the souls who in this manner try to make reparation to Me (says Our Lady), I promise to assist them at the hour of their death with all the graces necessary for their salvation.”

THE REVELATION OF MAY 29, 1930

4. Why should it be five Saturdays and not nine or seven in honour of the Sorrows of Our Lady?

While staying in the chapel with Our Lord part of the night, between the 29th and the 30th of this month of May 1930, and speaking to Our Good Lord about questions 4 and 5, I felt myself being more possessed by the Divine Presence, and if I am not mistaken, the following was revealed to me:

“My daughter, the motive is simple: there are five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
       The blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.
       The blasphemies against Her Virginity.
       The blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, refusing at the same time to accept Her as the Mother of all mankind.
       The blasphemies of those who try publicly to implant in children’s hearts indifference, contempt and even hate against this Immaculate Mother.
       The offences of those who insult Her directly in Her sacred images.
Here, my daughter, is the reason why the Immaculate Heart of Mary made Me ask for this little act of reparation and, in consideration of it, move My mercy to forgive those souls who had the misfortune of offending Her. As for you, try incessantly with all your prayers and sacrifices to move Me to mercy toward those poor souls.”

THE PRACTICE OF THE REPARATORY DEVOTION ON SUNDAYS

5. And if one could not accomplish all those obligations on a Saturday, would Sunday not do?

“The practice of this devotion will be equally accepted on the Sunday following the first Saturday, when, for just reasons, My priests will allow it.”

THE CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA

6. Regarding Russia, if I am not mistaken, Our Good Lord promises to put an end to the persecution in Russia,
       if the Holy Father himself deigns to make, and orders the Bishops of the Catholic world to equally make, a solemn and public act of reparation and consecration of Russia to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and
       if His Holiness promises at the end of this persecution to approve and recommend the practice of the reparatory devotion indicated above.
