Our blessed Lord commanded that all who wish to take up the devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus go to Confession and receive Holy Communion often, especially on the First Friday of each Month. Friday is significant because it recalls Good Friday when Christ took on the passion and laid down His life for the many. If unable to make it on Friday, He called us to make a point of receiving the Holy Eucharist on Sunday, or any other day, with the intention of making reparation and render atonement and to rejoice in the Heart of our Savior. He also asked that we keep the devotion by venerating an image of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and making prayers and sacrifices offered out of love for Him and for the conversion of sinners. Our blessed Lord then gave to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque promises for those who take up this sacred and special devotion.

Jesus Made Twelve Promises to Those Who Hold a True Devotion to His Sacred Heart:

1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.

2. I will give peace in their families and will unite families that are divided.

3. I will console them in all their troubles.

4. I will be their refuge during life and above all in death.

5. I will bestow the blessings of Heaven on all their enterprises.

6. Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.

7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.

8. Fervent souls shall rise quickly to great perfection.

9. I will bless those places wherein the image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored and will imprint My love on the hearts of those who would wear this image on their person. I will also destroy in them all disordered movements.

10. I will give to priests who are animated by a tender devotion to my Divine Heart the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart, never to be effaced.

12. THE GREATEST PROMISE - I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate(Receive Holy Communion) on the First Friday in nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence: they will not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their Sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
