I recently viewed a DVD of the Miracle of Fatima, afterwhich Fr. Apostoli spoke for quite some time regarding Fatima. He discussed making the five first Saturdays that Our Lady spoke of. He also mentioned that one could attend a Mass on Saturday evening which would still count for attending the first Saturday Mass. My husband and I always attend a 5 PM Saturday Mass which fulfills our Sunday obligation. (reason being I usually have insomnia and I’m never sure I can be up on time Sunday to attend Mass).
My question is this. If we attend that one Mass on Saturday evening does that fulfill the requirement for both Sunday Mass and a first Saturday Mass? Somehow I feel it would be cheating. What do you think? Is there anywhere that I can find the church’s rules re this?
