Ending Abortion, Consecration to Our Blessed Mother

           ‘Nations will be annihilated’ but

In the end My Immaculate Heart will Triumph'

            In our last blog post we focused on the immense importance of Eucharistic Adoration in fighting abortion. Now we move on to the next most important weapon we have, which is Consecration to Our Blessed Mother.

In July 1917, Our Blessed Lady appeared to three Portuguese children in Fatima. The children were shown a vision of hell, following which, Our Lady told them "You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace … I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays".

It is important to note that Our Lady said that the purposes of consecrating Russia to her were: to save sinners from hell and to bring peace to the world. It is also important that she said that if this Act of Consecration was not made and if devotion to her Immaculate Heart was not established in the world, that Russia would spread her errors around the world and nations would be annihilated.

The years following the message of Fatima saw the rapid spread of communism around the world and the influence of it even in countries that are not officially communist ruled. In the time between the apparitions at Fatima and the second world war, dictators such as Stalin and Hitler perfected the annihilation of nations. As well as war, abortion quickly became a means of destroying nations, particularly the communist nations of Eastern Europe, some of which had such high abortion rates that Doctors comment even now that to see women from some of those countries who have had 8 abortions is common and to see a woman who has had 20 abortions is not so unusual.

In the last years before his death Pope John Paul II made an Act of Consecration of the Whole World to Our Lady. Now there is no better way for us to be faithful to Our Blessed Lady’s request than by: a) living out this Consecration in our own lives, b) Consecrating all that we are and have personally to Our Lady and c) Establishing devotion to her Immaculate Heart in the world – particularly through the promotion of the devotion of the First Five Saturdays.

Through doing this you can be certain that you are assisting Our Lady to save souls from hell, you are helping to bring a true peace to the world and you are preventing the annihilation of nations, through euthanasia, abortion and all attacks on the sanctity of human life.

Fruits of Consecration to Our Lady

Ø St Louis Marie de Montfort’s preaching of the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary in the Vendee area in France resulted in a well-catechised laity, whose descendants fought and died for the Faith in large numbers.

Ø St Maximillian Kolbe, who influenced millions of Catholics to live their faith fully, led the largest monastery in Europe, which was founded on the Consecration of oneself to Mary.

Ø Frank Duff, founded the Legion of Mary in 1921 also based on total Consecration to Mary, the Legion has produced 4,000 martyrs in China as well as 6 candidates for Canonisation.

Ø Pope John Paul II said that the Total Consecration to Mary changed his life.

The Devotion of the First Five Saturdays

Our Lady said: "Look, my daughter, at my Heart, surrounded with thorns, with which ungrateful men pierce me at every moment by their blasphemies and ingratitude. You at least try to console me and say that I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the First Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me".

Later, on 29 May 1930, Our Lord explained to Lucia: "… There are five ways in which people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary; blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception, against her Virginity, and against the divine Maternity and the refusal to recognise her as the Mother of all mankind; blasphemies by those who seek publicly to implant in the hearts of children indifference, contempt and even hatred against this Immaculate Mother, and by those who insult her directly in her sacred images".

The devotion of the Five First Saturdays can be summarised as follows: sacramental confession, reception of Holy Communion, the recitation of five decades of the Rosary, meditation for fifteen minutes on the mysteries of the Rosary all with the intention of making reparation to Our Blessed Lady.

Let us therefore, out of love for Our Lady make this devotion our own! Praised be Jesus and Mary!
