The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a symbol and the seat of the tremendous love of God for His creatures, and His desire to save them. To those who seek to love Him in return, and repair to His Sacred Heart for the coldness, indifference and outrages of mankind, Our Lord made these great promises:
I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
I will give peace to their families
I will console them in all their troubles.
They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life, and especially at the hour of death.
Tepid souls shall become fervent.
Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and an infinite ocean of mercy.
I will bless the homes in which the image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written on My Heart never to be effaced.
I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
I promise thee, in the excess of the mercy of My Heart, that its all powerful love will grant to all who receive Holy Communion on the First Friday of every month, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance, and they shall not die under my displeasure, nor without receiving the Sacraments, and My Heart shall be their secure refuge at that last hours.
Our Lord has poured forth the love of His Sacred Heart, and He pleads for our own love, yours and mine. "Give your faithful love to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in return." We can do no less.
