From the 'Five First Saturdays Meditation' booklet (The Fatima Center).

Formulating an Intention of Reparation

O Jesus, we offer Thee this meditation as an act of reparation for sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. May this, our little but fervent act of devotion and reparation, bring consolation to that same most pure Heart, which ungrateful men pierce and afflict at every moment as if with cruel thorns by their blasphemies and ingratitude. And may our offerings move Thy mercy to forgive those poor sinners who have had the misfortune of offending the Heart of so great and loving a Mother. Amen.

Invoking Heaven's Assistance

Come, Holy Ghost, come by means of the powerful intercession of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Thy well-beloved spouse.

Hail Mary...

Father Gruner makes many good suggestions in his introduction to this wonderful little work. He particularly recommends we appeal to our dear guardian angel to help us faithfully offer prayers and sacrifices in reparation to Our Blessed Mother. The Five First Saturdays devotion She gave to Sr. Lucia of Fatima specifically accomplishes this.
Unfortunately, it's difficult to fulfil the requirements for the First Saturdays if you can't go to Holy Communion.

Yes, of course. A good confession is also necessary, and so much already has been taken away. But let's do what we can.
