The Twelve Promises of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary

or those Devoted to His Sacred Heart:

1.   I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
2.   I will establish 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 their death.
5.   I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
6.   Sinners shall find in My Heart the source of an 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 where an image of My Heart
shall be exposed and honoured.
10.  I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts.
11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names
written in My Heart, never to 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 that last hour.

From Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque’s Vision of Jesusthe 12 promises of the sacred heart - 16 oct 2017

Our scientific-materialistic age cannot “prove” private revelations.   Theologians, if pressed, admit that we do not have to believe in them.   But it is impossible to deny the message Margaret Mary heralded:  that God loves us with a passionate love.   Her insistence on reparation and prayer and the reminder of final judgment should be sufficient to ward off superstition and superficiality in devotion to the Sacred Heart while preserving its deep Christian meaning.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.
