On the first Saturday of the month, the Faithful are asked to go to Confession, Receive Holy Communion, Pray the Rosary, and Meditate for 15 minutes on a mystery of the Rosary. All of these actions should be offered for the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Blessed Mother promised that for those who do this on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, she will assist them at the hour of death with all the graces necessary for salvation.
Inspired by Pope Francis, who consecrated the world to Our Lady of Fatima last October, Archbishop Sample has consecrated the Archdiocese of Portland to the Blessed Mother under the title of the
“Immaculate Heart of Our Lady of Fatima”. In conjunction with this consecration, Archbishop Sample encourages all parishes, families and individuals to prayerfully participate in the First Saturdays Devotion, especially on these five first Saturdays of 2014: July 5, August 2, September 6, October 4 & November 1.

O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary (here kiss your Brown scapular as a sign of your consecration – this carries a partial indulgence). I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Jesus from all the altars throughout the world, joining with it the offering of my every thought, word and action of this day.
O my Jesus, I desire today to gain every indulgence and merit I can, and I offer them together with myself, to Mary Immaculate, that She may best apply them to the interests of Thy Most Sacred Heart. Precious Blood of Jesus, save us! Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us! Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee.
O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.
Most Holy Trinity, I adore Thee! My God, my God, I love Thee in the Most Blessed Sacrament!
O My Jesus, it is for love of Thee, in reparation for the offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and for the conversion of poor sinners.
O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy
