The Nine First Fridays

Devotions to the Sacred Heart
The promises of The Sacred Heart of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary (1647-1690): "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."

Conditions required:

To make nine Holy Communions;

on the first Friday of the month (confession required within eight days);

for nine consecutive months, without interruption;

with the proper disposition;

with the intention of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to obtain the fruit of this great promise.

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.

The First Five Saturdays of the Month

The great promise of Our Lady of Fatima

The Blessed Virgin appeared to Lucy on 13 June 1917, at Fatima, giving her the great mission of propagating the devotion of the first five Saturdays of the month, making known her "Great Promise.'' Our Lady showed her heart, saying:

"...Behold my heart in the midst of thorns that ungrateful persons, at every instant, press on it with their blasphemy and ingratitude. At least you console me, and tell all men that I promise to help, in the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, whoever the first Saturday of each month for five consecutive months will go to confession, receive Holy Communion, say five decades of the rosary and keep me company for fifteen minutes, meditating the mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."

Conditions required:

Confession (within eight days).

Holy Communion.

Recitation of a third part of the rosary (five decades).

Fifteen minutes of meditation on the mysteries.

Five consecutive months without interruption.

These five first Saturdays must be made with the intention of making reparation to console the Immaculate Heart of Mary, saddened by the indifference and ingratitude of so many, in a spirit of humility and sorrow for sins.
