I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts. To those devotions, Jesus gave these twelve promises: Promises to Those Who Consecrate Themselves to the Sacred Heart: As well, there are special promises for those who consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart and venerate it: These devotions to the Sacred Heart, through which Christ’s abundant love has promised an outpouring of graces, are a long-standing tradition in the Church.

I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings. Amen. 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 the sacraments; my heart shall be their assured refuge at the last hour.

Grant me the graces I need to joyfully accept the Cross daily, to lead a holy life, and to die a holy death in Your service. Destroy in me whatever may displease You or be opposed to You, and let Your pure love imprint You so deeply upon my heart that it will be impossible for me ever to forget You or be separated from You.
