Sacred Heart of Jesus

This month of June, we must recall even more devoutly the Sacred Heart of our Lord symbolising His divine love for sinful humanity. Our Lord gains nothing from our worship of Him, but it is truly His gift to us to render Him the homage of our entire being. Let us turn to our Redeemer, even though we have offended Him most greviously, as He is most tender and forgiving. In a revelation from our Loving Master to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, He made these promises to those who practice devotion to His Sacred Heart:

1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
2. I will give peace in their families.
3. I will console them in all their troubles.
4. They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.
5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
9. I will bless the homes in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honoured.
10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never be effaced.
12. The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under My displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at the last hour.
