Dear Brothers and Sisters,
First Friday devotions in Reparation to the Sacred Heart, and First Saturday devotions in Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary were far more common in days past than they seem to be today in some countries or in some areas of some countries.
Nevertheless, these devotions are important for they help to kindle in us the Fire of Love God placed in our hearts at Baptism. If anyone reading this is unfamiliar with First Friday devotions see HERE

If you cannot participate in Mass and Holy Communion, perhaps you can pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary with greater attention and devotion offering your love in Reparation. The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is another beautiful prayer, or simply offer your own words as you work. Some little sacrifice offered with great love can please the Hearts of Jesus and Mary more than most of us realize. We can so often neglect the little things that can become “great” with love.
