The First Friday of each month is designated to our Savior’s Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

“I promise you, in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the first Friday for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance; they shall not die in my disgrace nor without receiving the sacraments; My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in that last moment.” 

-From Jesus to St. Margaret Mary

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a devotion that focuses on the physical Heart is the symbol of His redemptive love of Jesus Christ.  The objective of this devotion is to make our Savior Jesus Christ ardently and perfectly known and loved and to make reparation for the outrages offered to Him in the past, as well as for those which take place daily.

 Jesus Christ invites us to love Him in a deep and personal way and on each First Friday as we can renew that love and recall HIs death on Good Friday and fulfill His request to go to Mass and receive Holy Communion for nine consecutive months. After this request is fulfilled we are invited to continue this devotion on behalf of others. 

 We fulfill the Sacred Heart First Friday Devotion by attending Mass and receiving Holy Communion in the state-of-grace.  

There is in the Sacred Heart the symbol and express image of the infinite love of Jesus Christ which moves us to love in return.

– Pope Leo XIII

Inspiring Prayers to the Sacred Heart

​Prayer of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

I, _______, give myself to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, and I consecrate to Him my person and my life, my actons, pains, and sufferings, so that henceforth I shall be unwilling  to make use of any part of my being except for the honor, love, and glory of the Sacred Heart.

My unchanging purpose is to be all His and to do all things for the love of Him while renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him.

I take you, O Sacred Heart, as the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, the assurance of my salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all my faults, and the sure refugee at my death.

O Heart of love, I place all my trust in You, for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Your goodness and bounty.

Consume in me all that can displease You or resist Your holy Will. Let Your pure love imprint You so deeply upon my heart that I shall nevermore be able to forget You or be separated from You. May I obtain from all Your loving kindness the grace of having my name written in You, for I desire to place in You all my happiness and all my glory, living and dying in virtual bondage to You.

We ask it through Your Sacred Heart, O Lord, who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.  Amen.
