An all-night Vigil consists of the Holy Mass, Procession, Adoration, and Reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. A memorial Evening spent in Prayer!
We make and distribute thousands and thousands of Rosaries and scapulars; these sacramentals are manufactured by us here in Chicago. These are sent to missions, here and abroad, to prisons, to schools, to retirement homes, all free of charge.
We are in the eleventh year of our lease with the Chicago Archdiocese for the Chapel at 3051 N. Christiana Ave. Chicago, IL. This gem of a building is totally sustained by the generosity of many. This beautiful Chapel accommodates over 320 in the pews. We have many diverse groups utilizing our facilities. We have weekend retreats, weekly events, all-day Adoration and a dozen or more Holy Masses each month.
Please join us in prayer, join us at our Holy Hour, and join us at the all-night vigil.
In July, Our Lady told them: “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse war will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. To prevent this, I shallcome to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the first Saturdays.”
Excerpt from Sister Lucia’s memoirs: On December 10,1925,the most holy virgin appeared to her, and by her side , elevated on a luminous cloud, was a Child. The most holy Virgin rested her hand on her shoulder, and as she did so, she showed her a heart encircled by thorns, which she was in her other hand. At the same time, the child said: ” Have compassion on the heart of your most holy mother, covered with thorns, which ungrateful men pierce it at every moment, and there is no one to make an act of reparation to remove them.”
Then the most holy Virgin 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 time of there 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.”
Sister Lucia took very seriously this part of the Secret. By dedicating ourselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary though the Five First Saturdays devotion, wars, famines, and persecutions of the Church could be averted. “Peace or war depends on [the Five First Saturdays] devotion along with the Consecration,” she wrote. In a letter, she showed her concern that Our Lady’s request for this devotion was not being faithfully carried out:
Please attend First Saturday Devotions in your parish or another that has it. Or start it in your own parish.
