The Devotion of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is THE FIRST CATHOLIC DEVOTION SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED AND ESTABLISHED BY JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF through His explicit instructions with the now famous "12 PROMISES" in two years of revelations to the French Nun, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.

These were compiled in a book written by Father John Croiset, S. J. which was published one year after her death in 1691. Their authenticity has been officially acknowledged by the Church, which strongly supports and encourages the practice of the Devotion.

Our Lord made the request, because of His ardent desire to be known, loved, honored and adored by all Catholics and to establish His reign in the hearts of all through our Consecration to the Devotion and love of His Sacred Heart.

A true love of Jesus Christ, special respect and the veneration for the Blessed Sacrament are the hallmarks of the Devotion and all its exercises. This Devotion is so pleasing to Jesus Christ that He can refuse nothing to those who practice it. He made this promise to St. Margaret Mary, whom He used to propagate it.
