The Nine First Fridays Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Great graces from Jesus for completing devotions to the Sacred Heart on nine consecutive First Fridays.


St. Margaret Mary Alacoque had a vision of Jesus in the 17th Century. He asked for reparation of sins through His Sacred 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.”

How To Do the Devotion

  1. Receive Holy Communion on a First Friday (receive in a state of grace only, go to Confession if necessary).
  2. This must be done on 9 consecutive First Fridays.
  3. This devotion is done in honor and reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
