We have a short devotional prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the 1st Friday of the every month at the Cathedral at 1.40pm after Mass.

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647 – 1690) was instructed by Jesus (who appeared to her many times) to spread this devotion to His Most Sacred Heart.

The Great Promises Our Lord Made

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
  2. I will give 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 death.
  5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and 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 in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored.
  10. I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
  11. Those who propogate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never 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 Divine Heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.

When Our Lord makes an extraordinary effort such as this to encourage each of us to this devotion, I think it’s wise to pay attention and do as He requests, yes?
