From Salve Maria Regina  website.

July 5, 2014. Today is the First Saturday of the month.


Here are three (in honor of the Blessed Trinity -- or is it because I'm too lazy to find more?) websites about the First Saturday Devotion, including how to make it:

  1. First Saturday Devotion, at Daily Catholic dot org.
  2. The great promise of the five first Saturdays, at Salve Regina dot org.

Today is also the feast of Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria.

I learned of St. Anthony Mary last week or so, when Scott Richert on Catholicism.about/com posted the novena to St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria on his newsletter.

St. Anthony Zaccaria died when he was only thirty six years old. This website has the entire novena, on one page, along with more information about the life and history of St. Anthony.
The Feast of St. Benedict is next week.
