Hearts of Jesus and Mary

Promises of the Heart of Jesus for Nine First Fridays
To Those that Live the Devotion to His Sacred Heart

The First Friday Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is based on a promise made by Our Lord Jesus Christ during an Apparition to St. Margaret Mary. This promise was implicitly approved by the Church in the 1920 canonization of St. Margaret Mary. The promise reads:

"I promise you in the excessive Mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful Love will grant to all those who communicate on the First Friday in nine consecutive months the Grace of Final Penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving the Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment."

Purpose of the Devotion: Reparation to the Heart of Jesus

In order to receive these graces we should:
1-Recieve without interruption Holy Communion for nine consecutive first Fridays.
2-Have the intention of honoring the Sacred Heart of Jesus persevering in our faith until the end.
3-Offer each Holy Communion as an act of expiation for the offenses committed against this Holy Sacrament.
4-Pray: "O Lord, who in the Heart of Your Son, wounded by our sins, has deposited infinite treasures of grace - we pray, that upon receiving the homage of our love, we have offered you a sufficient reparation. Through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. Heart of Jesus, I trust in You."
