First Saturday Mass
Starting October 6th., 2012, Low Mass will be offered at Queen of Heaven Cemetery Chapel every first Saturday of the month. Mass will start at 12:00 noon. Fr. Nicholas A. Milich will be our celebrant.
This is a devotion of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, done to honor Our Lady's sorrows as suggested by Our Lord in an apparition to Sister Lucia a visionary from Fatima in 1925 and as requested by Our Lady. The First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was first mentioned by Our Lady of Fatima on July 13, 1917
Christians have always honored the Blessed Virgin on Saturday because of her constant faith in Jesus on that first Holy Saturday before the Resurrection. Five first Saturdays of reparation were requested to atone for the five ways in which people offend the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
1.attacks upon Mary's Immaculate Conception
2.attacks against her Perpetual Virginity
3.attacks upon her Divine Maternity and the refusal to accept her as the Mother of all mankind
4.for those who try to publicly implant in children's hearts indifference, comtempt and even hatred of this Immaculate Mother
5.for those who insult her directly in her sacred images.
Please join us for our next First Saturday Mass on November 3rd., 2012, at 12:00 noon.
