I want to know the “correct” answer too. My old unit meets that morning for coffee and I’d love to go but I’ve been doing the 1st fri and sat devotions for awhile now and I love that a little more.
After mass for our 1st sat devotion we say the Rosary and a special prayer at the end to the BVM for mostly the same things in the respect life prayer, but it’s a little different.
I was kind of thinking if I went to vigil mass, said rosary and prayer I’d be good to go. But the Church has stick rules because when you make this devotion with 50 of the faithful in public it is way more powerful that’s why the sacrifice demand in time/date. In other words ‘be there or be square’. But I would love to be wrong about that.:gopray:
Truthfully I couldn’t even explain those devotions with absolute certainty but I know from my mother that they are a powerful weapon in the spiritual warfare that exists around us. So that was good enough for me.
