What is the goal of the One Intention Crusade?

To unify all Poland and the world with the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the first Saturdays of the month.

Primarily. The One Intention Crusade is an initiative, that is emerging on the foundation of the Great Novena of Fatima. Thus, it has as its source in the concern for the development and deepening of the Fatima devotion. For the inspiration here is one fundamental idea. If the „spirit of the Fatima message” is the devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, therefore in Poland, which was consecrated twice to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, such devotion should acquire a completely different value. However, this should not be about spreading another form of Marian devotion, but about fulfilling the obligations arising from the act of consecration. This was strongly emphasized both in 1946 and in 2017 by the Polish Episcopate, so as not to act passively but participate actively in the Message of Fatima. And such participation occurs in as much one practices the Five First Saturdays Devotion.

To unify all Poland and the world with the Immaculate Heart of Mary on the first Saturdays of the month.

Secondarily. Through a different form of prayer but the same intention “that Mary would be more known and loved; that her Call from Fatima would be known and embraced in the world”, the Crusade sets itself the following goals:

  • constant reminder of the essence, updates and meaning of the requests of Our Lady of Fatima,
  • to arouse concern, by reviving the memory that the path of Fatima was undertaken by Poland and the Church in our Homeland as an act of consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1946 and 2017,
  • contribute to the unification of Poland: prayer apostolates, apostolic movements, religious conventual assemblies, parishes, institutions, schools and faithful, around one idea – important for all of us and indicated in the Polish Episcopate’s Letter on the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima,
  • moreover, constant prayer is essential for the effort, initiated by the Act of the Consecration of Poland to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to develop through constant practice in the parishes of the Five First Saturdays of the Month Devotion.

Tertiarily. Awareness of what is happening around us does not allow us to be indifferent to the words of Sister Lucy, which she addressed to John Paul II after the assassination attempt in 1982:

„The third part of the secret is a symbolic revelation, referring to this part of the Message, conditioned by whether we accept or not what the Message itself asks of us: «If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, etc.’». Since we did not heed this appeal of the Message, we see that it has been fulfilled, Russia has invaded the world with her errors”.
