1-6. Sinners will find in My Heart an infinite ocean of mercy.
1-7. Lukewarm souls will become fervent.
1-8. Fervent souls will rapidly grow in holiness and perfection.
1-9. I will bless every place where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
1-10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
1-11. The names of those who promote this devotion will be written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
1-12. I promise thee, 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 of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
Keep in mind in the 12th Promise that our Lord asks us to receive Him in Holy Communion in a state of race on the First Friday of each of nine consecutive months, a First Friday devotion.
