Ave, Ave, Ave Maria!


Hail, Refuge of sinners! Hail, Star of the Sea! 
Hail, Queen of Creation! Our hope is in thee.


All hail, Virgin Mary! This Star guides our way, 
our country's Protectress, America's Way!


"Whether the world has war or peace depends on the practice of this devotion, along with the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is why I desire its propagation so ardently, especially because this is also the will of our dear Mother in Heaven." -Sr. Lucy (March 19, 1939)

 



In his sermon during Mass, Father explained the devotion and how each of the five Saturdays are acts of reparation for the five ways that people offend and blaspheme against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. You can more about it here: https://www.bluearmy.com/first-saturday-devotion/
