PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART
The First Friday of the Month, and on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus; Based on the promises made by Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary, and by Our Lady to the children of Fatima.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, look down upon us
humbly prostrate before Thee to adore Thee,
to praise Thee, to thank Thee,
to repair our past offenses and to consecrate ourselves to Thy Love.
Remembering Thy Divine promises and those of Thy most Immaculate Mother,
we say to Thee with the utmost confidence:
Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary:-
give us all the graces necessary in our state of life,
establish peace in our homes,
comfort us in all our afflictions,
be our secure refuge during life, and above all in death,
bestow abundant blessings upon all our undertakings,
may sinners find in Thy Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy,
may tepid souls become fervent,
may fervent souls quickly mount to high perfection,
bless every place in which an image of Thy Sacred Heart
and of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is exposed and honoured,
give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts,
write in Thy Heart, never to be effaced,
the names of those who promote devotion to Thy Sacred Heart
and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
grant to those who go to Communion on the first Friday
in nine consecutive months,
and to those who make the five first Saturdays,
the grace of final penitence;
grant that they shall not die in Thy disgrace
nor without receiving the Sacraments.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
reign in spite of Satan and of all the efforts of Thy enemies.
Lord, Thou hast made us these promises.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place in Thee all our confidence,
fearing all things of our weakness
and hoping all things in Thy kindness.
Through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
be the sole Object of our love,
the Protector of our life, the Support of our weakness,
the Remedy of our inconsistency, the Repairer of all our sins,
the Assurance of our salvation and our sure Refuge
at the hour of death.
