Alternative Reparation Vigil Programs and Prayers
Night Of Love by John M. Haffert
   
 
ALTERNATIVE PROGRAMS AND PRAYERS
 
 
The fifteen decades of the Rosary require only three hours. Another two hours will be filled with the two Masses. This leaves three or four additional hours to be planned.
 
Those hours may include a penitential service, acts of consecration, reading of the promises of the Sacred Hearts, Chaplet of Mercy, etc.
 
Various books are available for appropriate readings and prayers. Practices of Piety, published by Two Hearts Media, is an excellent vigil booklet widely used in the Philippines. It is based on the nine offices of the Sacred Hearts.
 
One practice particularly appropriate at each vigil is to repeat, before the Blessed Sacrament, the first Friday-Saturday promises of their Sacred Hearts:
 
Promises of the Sacred Heart
 
Jesus Himself made the following 12 promises to St. Margaret Mary:
     
1)
  I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
     
2)
  I will establish peace in their homes.
     
3)
  I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
     
4)
  I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all in death.
     
5)
  I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
     
6)
  Sinners will find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy.
     
7)
  Tepid souls shall become fervent.
     
8)
  Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
     
9)
  I will bless every place in which an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
     
10)
  I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
     
11)
  Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced.
     
12)
  I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the first Friday in nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving the Sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
   
The Five First Saturdays
 
Our Lady said at Pontevedra: I promise to assist at the hour of death, with the graces needed, whoever on the First Saturday of five consecutive months shall:
   
1)
  Confess and receive Holy Communion;
   
2)
  Recite five decades of the Rosary;
   
3)
  Keep Me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary;
   
4)
  Have the intention of making reparation to Me.
   
Meaning of the Promises
 
The first Friday promise of the Sacred Heart is that we will die in the State of Grace. The first Saturday promise of the immaculate Heart is that we shall not only die in the State of Grace, but Our Lady will "assist" (be present) with all the graces and help necessary. (Many consider this to be a promise of a peaceful transition.)
 
Two years after Our Lady appeared at Fatima and said, "I will come to ask for Communions of Reparation on the first Saturday," in a rescript in his own hand Pope Benedict XV granted a plenary indulgence at the hour of death, under the condition of contritely invoking the name of Jesus, to "those who for once in their lifetime perform some special exercises of devotion in honor of the Blessed Virgin Immaculate, in order to make atonement for the blasphemies whereby the name and prerogatives of the Blessed Virgin are reviled, ON THE FIRST SATURDAYS of eight consecutive months."
 
It was eighteen years after the Holy Father granted this indulgence that Our Lady came to ask for the five first Saturdays and to maker Her great promise of Her assistance at the hour of death for those who complete this devotion.
