First Saturday Devotion
The desire for a First Saturday devotion was
revealed by the Blessed Virgin Mary to the three children at Fatima in 1917. On December 10, 1925, the Virgin revealed more
details about the devotion to Sister Lucia, the only seer still alive at that time & a cloistered nun. From that time,
the devotion has spread throughout the world. The practice is conducted on the first Saturdays of every month. (The
Church traditionally honors Mary on Saturdays.)
