"I want to grant complete pardon to the souls that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion on the Feast of My Mercy." (Diary of Saint Faustina 1109)

On one occasion, I heard these words: "My daughter, tell the whole world about My Inconceivable Mercy. I desire that the Feast of Mercy be a refuge and shelter for all souls, and especially for poor sinners. On that day the very depths of My tender mercy are open. I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the fount of My mercy. The soul that will go to Confession and receive Holy Communion shall obtain complete forgiveness of sins and punishment. 

On that day all the divine floodgates through which grace flow are opened. Let no soul fear to draw near to Me, even though its sins be as scarlet. My mercy is so great that no mind, be it of man or of angel, will be able to fathom it throughout all eternity. Everything that exists has come forth from the very depths of My most tender mercy. Every soul in its relation to Me will contemplate My love and mercy throughout eternity. The Feast of Mercy emerged from My very depths of tenderness. It is My desire that it be solemnly celebrated on the first Sunday after Easter. Mankind will not have peace until it turns to the Fount of My Mercy." (Diary of Saint Faustina 699)

FIRST FRIDAY PRAYERS TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS


ACT OF REPARATION
TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
(To be prayed every First Friday of the Month)

                
Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation! Oh Heart, ever sensible of our misery and the wretchedness to which our sins have reduced us, infinitely rich in mercy to heal the wounds of our souls!  Behold us, humbly prostrate before You to express the sorrow that fills our hearts for the coldness and indifference with which we have so long requited the numberless benefits You have conferred upon us.
                 
With a deep sense of outrages heaped upon You by our sins and the sins of others, we come to make a solemn reparation of honor to Your most Sacred Majesty. It was our sins that overwhelmed Your Heart with bitterness. It was the weight of our iniquities that pressed down Your face to the earth in the Garden of Olives and caused You to expire in anguish and agony on the Cross. But now, repenting and sorrowful, we cast ourselves at Your feet and implore forgiveness.
                
 Adorable Heart of Jesus, source of true contrition and ever merciful to the penitent sinner, impart to our hearts the spirit of penance, and give to our eyes a fountain of tears that we may sincerely bewail our sins, now and for the rest of our days. O, would that we could blot them out even with our blood. Pardon them, O Lord, in Your mercy, and pardon and convert to You all that have committed irreverences and sacrileges against You in the Sacrament of Your love, and thus, give another proof that Your mercy is above all Your works.
                
 Divine Jesus, with You there is mercy and plentiful redemption. Deliver us from our sins. Accept our sincere desire and our resolution, with the help of  Your grace, henceforth to be faithful to You. And in order to repair the sins and ingratitude by which we have grieved Your Most tender and loving Heart, we are resolved in the future, ever to love and honor You in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar, where You are ever present to hear and grant our petitions and to be the food and life of our souls.
                
 Be, O compassionate Jesus, our Mediator with Your heavenly Father whom we have so grievously offended. Strengthen our weakness, confirm our resolution of amendment,  and as Your Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we have sinned, so may it be the strength and support of our repentance, that  nothing in life and death may ever again separate us from You. Amen.


ACT OF CONSECRATION
TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
by  St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


I, (say your name), give and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, my person and my life, my actions, pains and sufferings, not wishing to make use of any part of my being except to honor, love, and glorify your Sacred Heart.

It is my unchangeable will to be yours and to do everything for your love, renouncing with my whole heart whatever might displease you.

I take you to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my weakness and lack of faith, the reparation of all my sins, and the secure refuge at the hour of my death.

Heart of goodness, be my mediator before God the Father, and turn away from me the punishment my sins deserved. Heart of love, I place my trust in you. I fear all things from my sinfulness and weakness, but hope all things from your love.

Burn in me everything displeasing to you. Imprint your pure love upon my heart so that I will never forget you or be separated from you.

I implore you, by your goodness, that my name be written in your Heart. I consider it my happiness and glory to live and die as your disciple. Amen.

   
ENTHRONEMENT OF THE SACRED HEART


The center of the Devotion to the Sacred Heart is the Enthronement of the Image of the Sacred Heart in our homes. By this, we acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the King of our hearts; and we desire to make Him present daily in our homes and our lives as we pray the Act of Consecration by our whole family.

 
FAMILY CONSECRATION TO THE
SACRED HEART OF JESUS


Most Sweet Jesus, humbly kneeling at Your feet, we renew the consecration of our family to Your Sacred Heart. Be our King forever! In You we have full and entire confidence. May Your Holy Spirit penetrate our thoughts, our desires, our words, and our works. Bless our joys, in our trials, and in our labors. Grant us to know You better, to love You more, to serve You without faltering. Help us all together to build up in our land the “civilization of Love.”
               
By the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Peace, set up Your kingdom in our country. Enter fully into the midst of our families and make them Your own through the solemn enthronement of Your Sacred Heart, so that soon one cry may resound from home to home: May the redeeming Heart of Jesus be everywhere loved, blessed, and glorified forever! Honor and glory be to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.  With St. Joseph, we offer this earnest prayer. Sacred Heart of Jesus, be with our families, make them wholly your own. Amen.


PETITION PRAYER TO
ST. MARGARET MARY ALACOQUE


O St. Margaret Mary, through you, Jesus pours out His abundant graces to all mankind. Help us to put aside our own interests and abandon ourselves entirely and lovingly to the work which the Adorable Heart of Jesus wants us to do, so that we may, like you, merit His special care and favors, through Jesus’ mighty Name.

St. Margaret Mary! You to whom the Sacred Heart of Jesus has manifested His divine treasures, we implore you to obtain all the graces we need from the Adorable Heart. We ask Him with unlimited confidence (mention your petition here). May the Divine Heart grant these requests through your intercession, so that He may yet again be glorified and loved through you. Amen.

ETERNAL ASSURANCE FROM JESUS: PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART


THE 12 PROMISES OF THE SACRED HEART: 
ETERNAL ASSURANCE FROM JESUS

As human mortals, it is prudent practice to concern ourselves with the continuity of life’s activities such that we consider the securing of life insurance a priority investment. The purpose of this assurance plan is to ensure that our chosen (bereaved) beneficiaries will be well provided for in terms of monetary benefits should we abruptly terminate our earthly existence.

In case you are unaware, there is another secure form of Eternal Insurance that you can avail of for yourself and your love ones. This is by availing of the 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the form of First Friday Devotions to His Most Sacred Heart.

This is probably the most powerful Eternal Insurance you can ever subscribed to in one’s lifetime, since the Faithful Assurer is no less than Jesus Christ Himself. The eternal benefits of guaranteed salvation are comfortingly re-assuring and the period of effectivity is limitless.

For so much eternal benefits from the Divine Faithful Assurer, you would probably think that the subscription premium required is quite expensive. On the contrary, it costs absolutely nothing. The only thing that is required of you is a firm determination to start the First Friday Devotion and the persistent discipline to complete it.

In successive revelations, Jesus Christ Himself made the following promises to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, in favor of those who fervently practice and promote this devotion.

1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.

2. I will give peace in their families.

3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.

4. I will be their security and refuge during life, and above all, in death.

5. I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.

6. Sinners will find in My Heart the Source, and Infinite Ocean of Mercy.

7. Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.

8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.

9. I will bless every place in which an Image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.

10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.

11. Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart.

12. I promise you in the excessive Mercy of My Heart, that My all powerful Love will grant to all 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 assured refuge in this last moment.

As a Sacred Heart devotee, I began my First Friday Devotions with the primary objective of trying to complete the nine First Friday Masses. It may be difficult at the start, but don’t worry, continue to persist and in time, the Devotion will grow on you eventually to become a normal practice to observe monthly First Friday Masses even beyond the prescribed nine months minimum.

The Promises of the Sacred Heart are all inter-related with each other such that when you are committed into the Devotion, the promised benefits are all acquired continuously as part of the Eternal Assurance arrangement. Thus, numerous essential Graces are immediately bestowed and felt during the practice of the Devotion.

If you find during the duration of the Devotion, you are unlikely to finish what was started, just continue to pray and persevere. In time, you will realize that your lukewarm faith will become fervent and transformed as was stated in His Seventh Promise.

The Devotion to the Sacred Heart is actually an Eternal Guarantee from Jesus Christ Himself that He will be there with you always to guide and provide for you during your lifetime and more importantly assure you that as a Sacred Heart Devotee your salvation is granted so you may continue your eternal love and devotion in the afterlife.

So what are you waiting for? Start availing of your Eternal Assurance immediately by making a monthly resolution to attend the First Friday Devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The National Shrine of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is situated at Sacred Heart Street, corner Kamagong in Makati City, where First Friday Devotions are celebrated at all Masses every First Fridays.  First Friday Novena Prayers recited at all Friday Masses are available here.

LITURGICAL NOVENA IN HONOR OF THE SACRED HEART

 PRAYER OF THE FAITHFUL
(During Novena Masses on June 14-June 22)

Priest: We have come together in the power of the Holy Spirit to offer the Eucharistic Sacrifice to our Heavenly Father in thanksgiving for the great love He has shown us by giving us His Son, He revealed the depth of His Love through the symbol of the Heart. As we prepare to unite our hearts with His in offering this sacrifice to the Eucharist, let us pray to Him, for our needs and needs of the People of God.

Lord Jesus Christ, You promised that wherever two or three are gathered together in Your name, You will be present among them, come to us who have assembled here to honor You in Your most Sacred Heart. Fill our hearts with Your blessings and grace and enkindle them with the fire of Your Love.

People: O Divine Jesus, hear and grant our petitions.

Priest: Lord Jesus Christ, You said "Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you." Obtain for us an increase of faith, hope and love so that we may remain faithful to our baptismal promises until death.

People: O Loving Jesus, hear and grant our petitions.

Priest: Lord Jesus Christ, You said: "Come to me all who labor and are burdened and I will refresh you." We come to You confident that Your Merciful Love will lighten all our burdens of soul and body.

People: O Kind Jesus, hear and grant our petitions.

Priest: Let us now pray for the intentions of the Church and the People of God.

Lector: For the Holy Father in Rome, for the Bishops and Priests of the world and all the People of God, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord Jesus, hear our prayer.

Lector: For the world You came to save, that every man and woman may learn to know You and open their hearts to Your Love, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord Jesus, hear our prayer.

Lector: For the Church, sprung from Your side as You died upon the Cross, that it may bring all men to the Way, the Truth and the Life, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord Jesus, hear our prayer.

Lector: For all who are in any way afflicted, that they may find comfort for their spirits in the tender love that wells from Your Sacred Heart, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord Jesus, hear our prayer.

Lector: For all those who are present here, and who are seeking Your Divine Assistance in their material and spiritual needs, let us pray to the Lord.

People: Lord Jesus, hear our prayer.

Priest and People: Lord Jesus Christ, You have called us to share Your saving mission. Sinners though we are, we accept this mission and we renew today our baptismal promises. We renew our consecration of ourselves to Your Sacred Heart; we offer to You ourselves, our loved ones, all that we have, all that we do and all that we suffer, to be united with Your Eucharistic Offering to Our Father in heaven.

That we may serve You with greater fidelity, we ask You, our Divine Mediator to obtain the favors we seek in this Novena (request to be made in silence).

If what we ask is not for God's greater glory or for the good of our souls, grant us what is most pleasing to Your Divine Goodness.

Deepen our faith and touch fire to our hearts, that we may respond with love to that burning love for us and for all men that fills Your Sacred Heart. O Heart of Love, we place all our trust in You. We fear all things from our own weakness, but we hope for things from Your Goodness, Amen.




PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING 
(After Communion)


Priest and People: Lord Jesus Christ, we thank You for being with us today. We thank You for the graces we have received from You. For the grace of Your Divine Life in our souls. For the Love of God our Father and the abiding gift of the Holy Spirit. For the wonderful gift of Your Presence in the Holy Eucharist, and most especially for the Love in Your Heart which makes us more one with You and with each other in the depths of Your Sacred Heart.

Lector: Heart of Jesus, burning furnace of Charity.

People: Teach us to love one another as You have loved us!

Lector: Heart of Jesus, pierced by a lance, Victim of Sin.

People: Forgive us for all our ingratitude and our negligence!

Lector: Heart of Jesus, patient and most merciful to those who trust in You.

People: Be our refuge and our strength in the trials and temptations of life!

Lector: Heart of Jesus, Fountain of Life and Holiness.
 

People: Draw us closer to You and sanctify our lives with Your Grace!

Lector: Heart of Jesus, our life and resurrection.
 

People: Obtain for us at the hour of death, the grace to share in the glory of Your Resurrection by a new life of unending happiness in heaven.

Let us Pray.

ALL: O Divine Savior, You love every man and woman with such profound intensity that You had to reveal it through the symbol of Your Wounded Heart. Many of us live as though You did not exist.

Many others ignore You, or despise You, or reject Your precepts. In our parish, in our country, throughout the entire world, there are many Christians who are indifferent to Your Love.

Perhaps in our own families and in our communities, You are not loved as You deserve. Lord, we want to make up with You. Because You have given us the grace to know and to love You, we will love You inwardly as You wish.

In the midst of a sinful world, we will be healthy members of Your Mystical Body, overflowing with Love. Through prayer and sacrifice, we will make reparation according to our abilities, for the evil in the world and for the ingratitude of men and women,

We will contribute our part so that You can offer to the Father in heaven a glorious human race. We can do it because we are united inwardly with You and share in Your Life's work and in Your task of Redemption.

Heart of Jesus, Heart of Love, inflame our hearts with Your Love, Amen.

NOVENA PRAYERS TO THE DIVINE MERCY


PRAYERS FOR THE NOVENA TO THE DIVINE MERCY
(Diary, 1209-1229)


It is greatly recommended that the following novena intentions and prayers be said together with the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, since our Lord specifically asked for a novena of Chaplets especially before the Feast of Mercy.


First Day (Good Friday)

Today bring to Me ALL MANKIND ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS

and immerse them in the ocean of My Mercy. In this way, you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunge Me.

Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from it. We beg this of You by Your Love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your Mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your Mercy for ever and ever. Amen.

Second Day (Holy Saturday)

Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF PRIEST AND RELIGIOUS,

and immerse them in My unfathomable Mercy. It was they who gave Me strength to endure My bitter Passion. Through them as through channels My Mercy flows out upon mankind.

Most Merciful Jesus, from whom comes all that is good, increase Your grace in men and women consecrated to Your service, that hey may perform worthy works of mercy; and that all who see them may glorify the Father of Mercy who is in heaven.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the company of chosen ones in Your vineyard-upon the souls of priest and religious; and endow them with the strength of Your blessing. For the love of the Heart of Your Son in which they are enfolded, impart to them Your power and light, that they may be able to guide others in the way of salvation and with one voice sing praise to Your boundless Mercy for ages without end. Amen.

Third Day (Easter Sunday)

Today bring to me ALL DEVOUT AND FAITHFUL SOULS,

and immerse them in the ocean of My Mercy. These souls brought Me consolation on the Way of the Cross. They were that drop of consolation in the midst of an ocean of bitterness.

Most Merciful Jesus, from the treasury of Your Mercy, You impart Your graces in great abundance to each and all. Receive us into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart and never let us escape from it. We beg this grace of You by that most wondrous love for the heavenly Father with which Your Heart burns so fiercely.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon faithful souls, as upon the inheritance of Your Son. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, grant them Your blessing and surround them with Your constant protection. Thus may they never fail in love or lose the treasure of the holy faith, but rather, with all the hosts of Angels and Saints, may they glorify Your boundless Mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Fourth Day (Easter Monday)

Today bring to Me THOSE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD AND THOSE WHO DO NOT YET KNOW ME,

I was thinking also of them during My bitter Passion, and their future zeal comforter My Heart. Immerse them in the ocean of My Mercy.

Most compassionate Jesus, You are the Light of the whole world. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who do not believe in God and of those who as yet do not know You. Let the rays of Your grace enlighten them that they, too, together with us, may extol Your wonderful Mercy; and do not let them escape from the abode which is Your Most Compassionate Heart.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who do not believe in You, and of those who as yet do not know You, but who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate heart of Jesus. Draw them to the light of the Gospel. These souls do not know what great happiness it is to love You. Grant that they, too, may extol the generosity of Your Mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Fifth Day (Easter Tuesday)

Today bring to Me THE SOULS OF THOSE WHO HAVE SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM MY CHURCH,

and immerse them in the ocean of My Mercy. During My bitter Passion they tore at My Body and Heart, that is, My Church. As they return to unity with the Church My wounds heal and in this way they alleviate My Passion.

Most Merciful Jesus, Goodness  itself, You do not refuse light to those who seek it of You. Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Church. Draw them by Your Light into the unity of the Church, and do not let them escape from the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart; but bring it about that they, too, come to glorify the generosity of Your Mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls of those who have separated themselves from Your Son's Church, who have squandered Your blessings and misused Your graces by obstinately persisting in their errors. Do not look upon their errors, but upon the love of Your own Son and upon His bitter Passion, which He underwent for their sake, since they, too, are enclosed in His Most Compassionate Heart. Bring it about that they also may glorify Your great mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Sixth Day (Easter Wednesday)

Today being to Me THE MEEK AND HUMBLE SOULS AND THE SOULS OF LITTLE CHILDREN,

and immerse them in My mercy. These souls most closely resemble My Heart. They strengthened Me during My bitter agony. I saw them as earthly Angels, who will keep vigil at My Altars, I pour out upon them whole torrents of grace. Only the humble soul is capable of receiving My grace. I favor humbles souls with My confidence.

Most Merciful Jesus, You yourself have said, "Learn from Me for I am meek and humble of heart." Receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart all meek and humble souls and the souls of little children. These souls send all heaven into ecstasy and they are the heavenly Father's favorites. They are a sweet-smelling bouquet before the throne of God; God himself takes delight in their fragrance. These souls have a permanent abode in Your Most Compassionate Heart, O Jesus, and they unceasingly sing out a hymn of love and mercy.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon meek souls, upon humble souls, and upon little children who are enfolded in the abode which is the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. These souls bear the closest resemblance to Your Son. Their fragrance rises from the earth and reaches Your very throne. Father of Mercy and of all Goodness, I neg you by the love Your bear these souls and by the delight You take in them: Bless the whole world, that all souls together may sing out the praises of Your Mercy for endless ages. Amen.

Seventh Day (Easter Thursday)

Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ESPECIALLY VENERATE AND GLORIFY MY MERCY,

and immerse them in My Mercy. These souls sorrowed most over My Passion and entered most deeply into My Spirit. They are loving images of My Compassionate Heart. These souls will shine with a special brightness in the next life. Not one of them will go into the fire of hell. I shall particularly defend each one of them at the hour of death.

Most Merciful Jesus, whose heart is Love Itself, receive into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of those who particularly extol and venerate the greatness of Your Mercy. These souls are mighty with the very power of God Himself. In the midst of all afflictions and adversities they go forward, confident of Your Mercy, and united to You, O Jesus, they carry all mankind on their shoulders. These souls will not be judged severely, but Your Mercy will embrace them as they depart from this life.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls who glorify and venerate Your greatest attribute, that of Your fathomless Mercy, and who are enclosed in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus, These souls are a living Gospel; their hands are full of deeds of mercy, and their hearts, overwhelming with joy, sing a canticle of mercy to You, O Most High! I beg you O God: Show them Your Mercy according to the hope and trust they have placed in You. Let there be accomplished in them the promise of Jesus, who said to them that during their life, but especially at the hour of death, the souls who will venerate this fathomless Mercy of His, He Himself will defend as His glory. Amen.

Eight Day (Easter Friday)

Today bring to Me THE SOULS WHO ARE DETAINED IN PURGATORY,

and immerse them in the abyss of My Mercy. Let the torrents of My Blood cool down their scorching flames. All these souls are greatly loved by Me. They are making retribution to My Justice. It is in your power to bring them relief. Draw all the indulgences from the treasury of My Church and offer them on their behalf. Oh, if you only knew the torments they suffer, you would continually offer for them the alms of the spirit and pay off their debt to My Justice.

Most Merciful Jesus, You Yourself have said that You desire Mercy; so I bring into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart the souls of Purgatory, souls who are very dear to You, and yet must make retribution to Your Justice. May the streams of Blood and Water which gushed forth from Your Heart put out the flames of Purgatory, that there, too, the power of Your Mercy may be celebrated.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon the souls suffering in Purgatory, who are enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. I beg You, by the sorrowful Passion of Jesus Your Son, and by all the bitterness with which His Most Sacred Soul was flooded: manifest Your Mercy to the souls who are under Your just scrutiny. Look upon them in now other way but only through the Wound of Jesus, Your dearly beloved Son; for we firmly believe that there is no limit to Your goodness and compassion. Amen.

Ninth Day (Easter Saturday)

Today bring to Me SOULS WHO HAVE BECOME LUKEWARM,

and immerse them in the abyss of My Mercy. These souls wound my Heart most painfully. My soul suffered the most dreadful loathing in the Garden of Olives because of lukewarm souls. They were the reason I cried out: "Father take this cup away from me, if it be Your Will." For them the last hope of salvation is to run to My Mercy.

Most compassionate Jesus, You are Compassion Itself. I bring lukewarm souls into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart. In this fire of Your pure Love let these tepid souls, who, like corpses, filled You with such loathing, be once again set aflame. O Most Compassionate Jesus, exercise the omnipotence of Your Mercy and draw them into the very ardor of Your Love, and bestow upon them the gift of holy love, for nothing is beyond Your power.

Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon lukewarm souls who are nonetheless enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. Father of Mercy, I beg You by the bitter Passion of Your Son and by His three-hour agony on the Cross: Let them, too, glorify the abyss of Your Mercy. Amen.
