I’ve consecrated myself to Mary, and plan on starting my “First Five Saturdays” tomorrow. However, I still don’t fully understand the requirements that Mary listed:
- Confess my sins
- Receive Holy Communion
- Recite 5 decades of the Rosary
- Spend 15 minutes with the Blessed Mother by meditating on the 15 (or 20?) mysteries of the Rosary.
#4&5 are where I’m confused. I thought you meditated on one mystery for each decade. Does this mean pray 15 decades, even though she only said 5?
And furthermore, MUST I receive Communion on saturday? I don’t have daily Mass on saturdays at my parish, only the “sunday” mass at 5 pm.
