First Saturday Devotion


Fifteen Promises of the Most Holy Mother of God to Christians Who Recite the Rosary

1. Whoever shall faithfully serve me by the recitation of the rosary, shall receive signal graces.

2. I promise my special protection and the greatest graces to all those who recite the rosary.

3. The rosary shall be a powerful armour against hell, it will destroy vice, decrease sin, and defeat heresies.

4. It will cause virtue and good works to flourish; it will obtain for souls the abundant mercy of God; it will withdraw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.

5. The soul which recommends itself to me by the recitation of the rosary, shall not perish.

6. Whoever shall recite the rosary devoutly, applying himself to the consideration of its sacred mysteries shall never be conquered by misfortune. God will not chastise him in His justice, he shall not perish by an unprovided death; if he be just he shall remain in the grace of God, and become worthy of eternal life.

7. Whoever shall have a true devotion for the rosary shall not die without the sacraments of the Church.

8. Those who are faithful to recite the rosary shall have during their life and at their death the light of God and the plenitude of His graces; at the moment of death they shall participate in the merits of the saints in paradise.

9. I shall deliver from purgatory those who have been devoted to the rosary.

10. The faithful children of the rosary shall merit a high degree of glory in heaven.

11. You shall obtain all you ask of me by the recitation of the rosary.

12. All those who propagate the holy rosary shall be aided by me in their necessities.

13. I have obtained from my Divine Son that all the advocates of the rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death.

14. All who recite the rosary are my sons, and bothers of my only son Jesus Christ.

15. Devotion of my rosary is a great sign of predestination.

Deliver Us From Evil

Today, there are popular satanic songs, games, street gangs, and an increase in satanic worship. In spite of the prevalent influence, many people do not take this seriously, and they laugh off the notion of the power of evil as actually being a part of the real world. Seminarian Josh Johnson and Fr. Basil believe that demonic influence is real. The evil one can tempt us but cannot touch us unless we open the door. He uses addiction, depression, pain, sickness, anger and unforgiveness, but God has the ultimate power and wants to set us free.

Feast of Sts Peter and Paul

Sts. Peter and Paul

This is also the close of the jubilee year dedicated to St. Paul.

Novena to Sts. Peter and Paul

O glorious Sts. Peter and Paul, filled with compassion for those who invoke you, with love for those who suffer, heavily laden with the weight of my troubles, I kneel at your feet and humbly beg you to take my present need under your special protection...(mention here).

As disciples of Christ and the first pastors of the early Church you both knew disappointment and suffering. Lead me out of my troubles as you have so many to Christ our Lord. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace to one day meet God Face to face, and with you and Mary and all the angels and saints praise Him through all eternity.

O most powerful Sts. Peter and Paul, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of winning my way to heaven.
