Words of Sr. Lucy of Fatima, 1946: "By sacrifice, Our Lady said that she meant the faithful fulfillment of one’s daily duty. The rosary is important if we are to fulfill our daily duty. The *First Five Saturdays’ devotion is important because if people make them they will purge themselves of sin once a month.
All that God wishes in the way of mortification is the simple performance of one’s daily tasks and the acceptance of their difficulty and tedium. Many people imagine that penitence means the performance of great austerities and as they have neither the strength nor generosity to undertake such austerities, they become discouraged and fall into a life of indifference and sin. Our Lord has said to me:“The sacrifice that each one can make is to do his duty and obey my law. That is the form of penance I now demand.”
*Note: This devotion can ONLY be fulfilled by attending Masses and going to Confession of a priest with jurisdiction from the Papacy in exile. Currently during this, the Apostasy, it seldom is completed. Perhaps this is why Sr. Lucy *stated that during this time of Trial, the Holy Rosary would be given a new efficacy by Our Lady: "... with the new efficacy Our Lady has given to the Rosary, there is no problem in the life of anyone which cannot be solved by frequently praying the Rosary."
