IAJOEB - good question. Sometimes we just don't think of it, do we?

YOu know I go to Mass most Fridays because I take communion to a 90 year old home bound lady. but I never thought about 1 st Saturdays ... why not?

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

LESLIEJEAN - from what I understand, a saint had visions about the first Friday and first Saturday of every month. When celebrating Mass on those days, for 9 consecutive months, certain promises were said to be granted.

Here is the link I found:

Can someone explain the significance of 1st Fridays and Saturdays? Does it mean you go to Mass both those days? I could do that.

I forget too!
When I am working during the school year, we often have a school Mass on First Fridays, so I can't forget, lol. However, during the summer, I often don't think of it unless someone reminds me.

I wanted to do the 9 First Fridays of the Month. I got to 3, and then I totally forgot about the next months, so missed it. And I forgot about the next month too, even though I had notes all over the house about it. If anyone else tries to go to mass for these, maybe we can remind each other on this forum.
