Father Jacques-Marie-Louis Monsabré O.P. (1827 – 1907) – was born at Blois, France, on the 10th December, 1827. He was ordained as a diocesan priest on the 15th June, 1851, but joined the Dominicans in 1855. “His intense love of souls and apostolic zeal made his discourses throb with life, and his clear and profoundly theological mind enabled him to shed light even upon the most abstruse tenets of the faith, while his earnest and impassioned appeals to all the noblest impulses of man always met with an enthusiastic response.” This book contains some of Father Monsabré’s meditations on the mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of Our Lady
The Five First Saturdays Devotion of Reparation
The purpose of this book is to help people to complete the devotion of the Five First Saturdays of Reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which was given to the Catholic Church by Our Lady of Fatima.
One part of the Five First Saturday Devotion, perhaps the part where most people fail, consists in accompanying Our Lady for fifteen minutes whilst meditating on the mysteries of the Holy Rosary. One can meditate on one or on several mysteries of the Rosary for that time.
This book is a collection of Rosary meditations composed by the celebrated French Dominican, Father Jacques-Marie-Louis Monsabré, which were translated into English in 1885. Although these were composed before Our Lady visited Fatima, they are perfectly suitable for use with the Five First Saturdays Devotion of Reparation.
