Our world faces an unprecedented crisis for which there is no human solution. God loves us and foresaw these times. In 1917, He sent the Blessed Virgin Mary to three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal with Heaven's solution to the crisis.

Our Lady of Fatima told the children that She would return to request the First Saturday Devotion and the Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart and that if Her requests were heeded Russia would convert and the world would enjoy a period of peace. She warned, however, that if Her requests were not obeyed, the Church and the world would have much to suffer.

True to Her word, Our Lady returned in 1925 to request the First Saturday Devotion and in 1929 to request the Consecration of Russia.  As neither request has been fulfilled, the Church and the world have been suffering ever since resulting in the spiritual, moral, social, political, and economic crisis we now face.

*Our initial goal was going to be 100,000 sets of Five First Saturdays. However, as every completed First Saturday offers reparation pleasing to Our Lord and Our Lady, fosters devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and helps merit the graces needed for the Consecration of Russia, we chose the goal to be 100,000 First Saturdays. This ensures every completed First Saturday is counted and enables more Catholics to participate.
