What's New
Mary destroys the devil

Jesus wants us to recognize Mary's role in salvation history. Let us turn to Our Lady of Guadalupe (Our Lady of the Americas) asking for her prayers for peace and unity, for the conversion of our Country as well as the rest of the World.

First Saturday Fatima Devotions

In reparation for the five great blasphemies against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

  1. Her Immaculate Conception

  2. Her Virginity

  3. Her Divine Maternity

  4. For taking devotion to her from the hearts of the young

  5. Desecrating her shrine and images

We have begun First Saturday Devotions at Casa Maria as a community. We invite you to download the PDF of the program we are using for these devotions. The following are prayers and Marian hymns that you may also want to use as you undertake the Five First Saturdays.

The Holy Rosary


The Fatima Aspiration - (after each decade of the Rosary repeat the following)

"O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy."

(End the Rosary with) - Hail Holy Queen, hail, Mother of Mercy our life our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate thine eyes of mercy towards us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.


Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us
That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray
O God, whose only begotten Son by His life, death, and resurrection has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech Thee, that by meditating upon these mysteries of the most holy rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

St. Louis de Montfort's - True Devotion to Mary


(Excerpts)


The Perfect Consecration to Jesus Christ


1.  A complete consecration to Mary

120.  "As all perfection consists in our being conformed, united and consecrated to Jesus it naturally follows that the most perfect of all devotions is that which conforms, unites, and consecrates us most completely to Jesus. Now of all God's creatures Mary is the most conformed to Jesus. It therefore follows that, of all devotions, devotion to her makes for the most effective consecration and conformity to him. The more one is consecrated to Mary, the more one is consecrated to Jesus..."


123.  "It follows then: (1) that by this devotion we give to Jesus all we can possibly give him, and in the most perfect manner, that is, through Mary's hands. Indeed we give him far more than we do by other devotions which require us to give only part of our time, some of our good works or acts of atonement and penances. In this devotion everything is given and consecrated, even the right to dispose freely of one's spiritual goods and the satisfactions earned by daily good works..."


125.(3) "It follows that we consecrate ourselves at one and the same time to Mary and to Jesus. We give ourselves to Mary because Jesus chose her as the perfect means to unite himself to us and unite us to him. We give ourselves to Jesus because he is our last end. Since he is our Redeemer and our God we are indebted to him for all that we are."




Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
By St. Louis de Montfort



I, (name) a faithless sinner, renew and ratify today in thy hands, O Immaculate Mother, the vows of my Baptism: I renounce forever Satan, his pomps and works; and I give myself entirely to Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Wisdom, to carry my cross after Him all the days of my life, and to be more faithful to Him than I have ever been before.

In the presence of all the heavenly court, I choose thee this day for my Mother and Mistress. I deliver and consecrate to thee, as thy Slave, my body and soul, my goods, both interior and exterior, and even the value of all my good actions, past, present and future; leaving to thee the entire and full right of disposing of me, and all that belongs to me, without exception, according to thy good pleasure, for the greater glory of God, in time and in Eternity. Amen


Sacred Heart of Jesus,

have pity on us!

Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,

pray for us!

O Mary, conceived without sin,

pray for us who have recourse to Thee.

Saint Joseph,

Pray for us.

FATIMA PRAYERS

TAUGHT BY THE ANGEL AT FATIMA (1916)


My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love You! I beg pardon for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor love You.


Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly. I offer You 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. And, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of You the conversion of sinners.


Most Holy Trinity, I adore You! My God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament. (May 13, 1917)


Sacrifice yourselves for sinners and say often, especially whenever you make a sacrifice:


O Jesus, this is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. (July 13, 1917)

Dear Lady of Fatima


Dear Lady of Fatima,
We come on bended knee,
To beg Your intercession,
For peace and unity.
Dear Mary, won't You show us,
The right and shining way,
We pledge our love and offer You,
A Rosary each day.


You promised at Fatima,
Each time that You appeared,
To help us if we pray to You,
To banish war and fear.
Dear Lady, on First Saturdays,
We ask Your guiding hand,
For grace and guidance here on earth,
And protection for our land.

Fatima Ave


  1. In Fatima's Cove on the thirteenth of May, the Virgin Maria appeared at midday.
  2. The Virgin Maria surrounded by light, God's Mother is ours, for she gives us this sight.
  3. The world was then suffering from war, plague, and strife, and Portugal mourned for her great loss of life.
  4. To three shepherd children the Virgin then spoke a message so hopeful, with peace for all folk.
  5. With sweet Mother's pleading, she asked us to pray, do penance, be modest, the Rosary each day.
  6. All Portugal heard what God's Mother did say, converted it sings of that Queen to this day.
  7. We all must remember Our Lady's request, do all that she asks for, obey her requests.
  8. She warned of behavior from which we must turn, of thoughts, words, and actions which Christians must spurn.
  9. She told us that Jesus is so much offended, and asked that our living be firmly amended.
  10. To her sad, sweet pleading our promise is made, that God's Law in all things be strongly obeyed.
  11. From nation to nation her fair name is praised, as souls from sin's bondage are contritely raised.
  12. Our thanks to the Godhead, whose ways are so sure, for giving us Mary, our Mother Most Pure.
  13. Our hearts, overflowing with kindness and love, thank her for God's graces bestowed from above.
  14. Hail, Refuge of sinners! Hail, Star of the Sea! Hail, Queen of Creation! Our hope is in thee.
  15. All hail, Virgin Mary! This Star guides our way, our country's Protectress, America's Way!

Recently, in an EWTN interview, Father Apostoli stated that Our Lady of Fatima's request for the five First Saturdays' devotion has not yet been fulfilled. The "First Saturdays" are to be made in reparation to her Immaculate Heart.  Father Apostoli said that the Lord is waiting for this reparation in order to inaugurate Our Lady's era of peace, which we so desperately need today.


Johnnette Benkovic has given us permission to offer for your viewing Father Apostoli's programs on Fatima that Mother Gabriel found so interesting.
