In 1675, Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque in Paray le Monial, France in a convent.
He said, "Behold this heart which has so loved men. Establish in the world a devotion to My
Sacred Heart." To those who receive Holy Communion on 9 consecutive first Fridays, Jesus
promises the following:
- I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
- I will establish peace in their families.
- I will console them in all their pains and trials.
- I will be their assured refuge in life and especially in death..
- I will shed abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
- Lukewarm souls will become fervent.
- Fervent souls shall rise to greater perfection.
- I will bless those homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
- I will give to priests the gift of moving the hardest of hearts.
- Persons, who propagate this devotion, shall have their names inscribed on My Heart, never to be effaced from it.
