It is time to genuflect and begin with prayer, since this is always the way to beginning of good.  The timely Call of the Mother of God, which is still not fully known, as well as taken up and implemented. „We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete. Here there takes on new life the plan of God which asks humanity from the beginning: “Where is your brother Abel […] Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground!” (Gen 4:9). Mankind has succeeded in unleashing a cycle of death and terror, but failed in bringing it to an end… In sacred Scripture we often find that God seeks righteous men and women in order to save the city of man and he does the same here, in Fatima, when Our Lady asks: “Do you want to offer yourselves to God, to endure all the sufferings which he will send you, in an act of reparation for the sins by which he is offended and of supplication for the conversion of sinners?” . Benedict XVI, Fatima, 13 May, 2010. The popes Pius XII, Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Francis consecrated according to the request of the Mother of God: the world, the Church, Russia, the priests. Various countries of Europe and the world were consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Poland consecrated twice in acts of 1946 and 2017. The compensation in the dimension of the Five First Saturdays is indissolubly connected with the act of sacrifice. Poland and the Church in our Homeland, all parishes, have been consecrated to the Heart of Mary, However, is the reparation trough the Five First Saturdays Devotion made in equal universal dimension? We know the answer is no and we strive to raise reparation to a higher level.„Let's undertake the Message from Fatima! The Message of Fatima is repeatedly directed to the universal Church. The acceptance of the message from Fatima is upmost expressed in practicing the Five First Saturdays Devotion. Anyone who for five consecutive First Saturdays will: be in the state of sanctifying grace; receive Holy Communion; pray a set of the Holy Rosary; contemplate in unity with the Mother of God mysteries of the Rosary with the intention of rewarding for the sins of the world, then the person will not be only a passive viewer but an active participant in this Message. ”. - Letter from the Polish Episcopate on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions - May 21, 2017We all need the light, humbleness, open heart to the voice of God, in order to practice His will, and not our own. We also need spiritual strength and zeal so that passing time does not extinguish the fire in our hearts, so that solely human and purely rational methods will not prevail in saving sinners and in striving for peace in the world. Such character virtues may emerge out of prayer, especially joint prayer. „Again, truly I say to you that if two of you on earth agree concerning any matter which they may ask, it will be done for them by My Father in the heavens. For where two or three have been gathered-together in My name, I am there in the midst of them”. Mt 18: 19-20 We will not change the situation and even more the world by asking endless questions: why is it so and not otherwise? It is time to genuflect and start from prayer because what is good always begins from prayer.To receive, one must ask, this is the way Jesus teaches us in the Gospel „Be asking, and it will be given to you; be seeking, and you will find; be knocking, and it will be opened to you. For everyone asking receives; and the one seeking finds; and to the one knocking, it will be opened.” Mt 7, 7-8.
At any time, make and join with this Intention any good such as: prayer, sacrifice, fasting and mortification. Firstable. We can not forget that all our spiritual acts that we undertake are meaningful in as much we act in conviction of their connection to an intention. For example, the question may be asked: is it sufficient enough to only express words in prayer or to fast on a Friday by only abstaining from eating meat? That is, if there is no intention connected with a good which we undertake in action, in thought and in a word, then we act insufficeintly . To exemplify this is accomplishing something as writing a beautiful letter without a recipient. For this reason, the essence of the Crusade is to consciously accentuate the intention: "That Mary would be more known and loved; that her Call from Fatima would be known and embraced in the world."Secondly. Such a form of prayer storm is possible for each and every person without exception. On the one hand, it opens new horizons for us in the perception of prayer, and on the other, it does not limit us in our decisions and expressions of love for Mary. The Crusade is an invitation to any – in regards to place, time and form – prayer, penance, fasting, mortification, works of mercy or, for example, sacrifices of everyday life, but always undertaken in this one particular intention. Thus, the essence of the work is to focus not on what and how much to do, but on connecting the intention,Thus, the essence of the work is to focus not on what and how much to do. However, make emphasis on connecting to the intention while carrying it in the heart with any good undertaken for love of Mary.Thirdly. Such a path has already been indicated to us by the Primate of the Millennium, Fr. Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński. „Should we not combine in prayer, the spirit of penance and remuneration, small offerings, mortifications, voluntary refrainments and sacrifices? This is what the Holy Mother Herself asks for, alike in Lourdes, in La Salette and in Fatima! And you know well how many fruitful sacrifices can be made for the good of our person, our families' and society! Conrtrol over tongue and mouth, increasing sensitivity towards others, improving work style and ethics, abstaining from alcoholic beverages and smoking, reduction of unnecessary expenses for personal pleasure. Refraining from addictions and bad habitudes sometimes so cost consuming, ruining the health and budget of families – it is a long litany of opportunities for penance and remuneration for the sea of sins that harm us all.” We have so many opportunities to do good without imposing additional obligations, as it is sufficient to carry the intention in our hearts. Let us, therefore, share one common intention.
„That Mary would be more known and loved; that her Call from Fatima would be known and embraced in the world”. „Jesus wishes to make use of you to make me known and loved. He wants to establish in the world the devotion to My Immaculate Heart. To whoever embraces this devotion I promise salvation; these souls shall be dear to God, as flowers placed by Me to adorn His throne”. (Our Lady - Fatima - 1917.)
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”.
