The 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary between 1673 and 1675. Among the words spoken to her, she heard Jesus make several promises to those who would respond to the pleadings of His Heart and make an effort to return His love. She wrote them down and they have come to be known as the Twelve Promises.
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 their difficulties.
I will be their secure refuge during life, and more especially, at the hour of death.
I will shower down abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
Lukewarm souls will become fervent.
Fervent souls will rise speedily to great perfection.
I will bless every place in which the picture of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored.
I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
Those who spread this devotion will have their names written in My Heart, and they will never be effaced.
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 Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
