History of the Devotion and the 12 Promises
The history of the Sacred Heart is a response to man's historical indifference to the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Promises of the Sacred Heart are meant to re-ignite the soul of Christians who are not fervent believers. General devotions to the Sacred Heart were popular in Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries. Specific devotions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus became more widespread when St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690), a Visitation nun, had a personal revelation involving a series of visions of Christ as she prayed before the Blessed Sacrament. She wrote, “He disclosed to me the marvels of his Love and the inexplicable secrets of his Sacred Heart.” Christ emphasized to her His love and the woundedness he felt as a response to Man's indifference to this love and sacrifices.
He promised the following to those who consecrate themselves and make reparations to His Sacred Heart (The 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus):
1.He will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
2.He will establish peace in their homes.
3.He will comfort them in all their afflictions.
4.He will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death.
5.He will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
6.Sinners will find in His Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
7.Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.
8.Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
9.He will bless every place in which an image of His Heart is exposed and honored.
10.He 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 His Heart.
12.In the excessive mercy of His Heart, His all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in His disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. His divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
