The Nine First Fridays Devotion Requested by Our Lord Jesus Christ
"I promise you, in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the first Friday for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance; they shall not die in my disgrace nor without receiving tile sacraments; my divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in that last moment." — from the Promises of our Lord to Saint Margaret Mary
To make nine Holy Communions;
on the first Friday of each month (confession required within eight days);
for nine consecutive months, without interruption;
with the intention of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to obtain the fruit of this great promise.
THE PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS TO ST. MARGARET MARY
Many are the promises that the Sacred Heart of Jesus has made to His Servant St. Margaret Mary, in favor of His devoted ones, as is evident from her writings. The principal ones are as follows:
I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
I will give peace in their families.
I will console them in all their troubles.
I will he their refuge in life and especially in death.
I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.
Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
Tepid souls shall become fervent.
Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfect ion
I will bless those places wherein the image of my Sacred heart shall be exposed and venerated.
I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names eternally written in my Heart.
In the excess of the mercy of my heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.
Prayer by St. Margaret Mary
O Heart of love, I place my trust entirely in Thee. Though I fear all things from my weakness, I hope all things from Thy goodness! Amen.
