The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus



The month of June is devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus!


The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was started and made popular by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. She was inspired by visions of Jesus to spread this devotion. Jesus made twelve promises to those who practice the devotion to His Sacred Heart.


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

  2. I will establish peace in their families.

  3. I will console them in all their troubles.

  4. They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of their death.

  5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.

  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source of an infinite ocean of mercy.

  7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.

  8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.

  9. I will bless the homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.

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

  11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced.

  12. 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 their Sacraments; My heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.

The Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus begins on June 15 and concludes on June 23, the day before the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 24. Repeat the following prayer once a day for nine days to pray the novena with us!
