PROMISES ATTACHED TO THE CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

PROMISES ATTACHED TO THE CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

Consecration to the Sacred Heart is the principle, the resume and the final term of all the devotional practices demanded by our Divine Lord for His Sacred Heart.

a) THIS CONSECRATION REJOICES THE SACRED HEART AND TERRIFIES THE DEVIL, AGAINST WHOM IT IS A POWERFUL WEAPON.
“Let us renew often our consecration to the Heart of Jesus,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “and let us live that consecration faithfully. The Sacred Heart takes a singular pleasure in it.
“The devil has a most intense fear of the devotion to this loving Heart, because of the salvation of the multitude of souls which it effects in favor of those who consecrate themselves completely to the Sacred Heart for the purpose of loving It, honoring It, and glorifying It.”
b) CONSECRATION 10 THE SACRED HEART IS A SOVEREIGN REMEDY AGAINST MORTAL SIN.
“I cannot believe,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “that those consecrated to the Heart of Jesus will fall under the domination of Satan through mortal sin, if having consecrated themselves to the Heart of Jesus, they endeavor to honor It, love It, and glorify It, by conforming themselves in all things to Its holy maxims.”
c) CONSECRATION PUTS SOULS ON THE ROAD TO PERFECTION.
“There is no surer means of attaining perfection than to be consecrated to the Heart of Jesus. If therefore, we wish to attain that perfection which the adorable Heart of Jesus desires of us, we must make an entire sacrifice of ourselves, and of everything that depends on us, to the Sacred Heart and live entirely for It.”
d) CONSECRATION WILL PROCURE PEACE.
“Establish your dwelling in the amiable Heart of Jesus, and you will find unalterable peace, strength to carry out all your good desires, and a protection against voluntary faults.”
e) CONSECRATION IS THE KEY WHICH OPENS THE SACRED HEART TO US.
“Our Lord gave me to understand that He wishes to be known, loved and adored by men, and for that end He would give them many graces, provided they consecrated themselves to the devotion and love of His Sacred Heart.”
f) CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART IS A PLEDGE OF SALVATION.
“There is no surer means of salvation than to consecrate oneself to the Divine Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ. “The loving Heart of Jesus will not allow any of those consecrated to It to perish, so great is His desire that His Sacred Heart be known, loved and honored by His creatures. In this Sacred Heart they will find assistance during their life in all their necessities; It will be their secure place of refuge at the hour of their death, into which they will be received and protected from their enemies.”

PROMISES MADE IN FAVOR OF SINNERS

THE DEVOTlON TO THE SACRED HEART IS AN EFFICACIOUS MEANS OFFERED FOR THE CONVERSION OF SINNERS.
“My Divine Master:’ writes St. Margaret Mary, “revealed to me that it was His ardent desire to be known, loved and honored by men, and His eager desire to draw them back from the road to perdition, along which Satan is driving them in countless numbers, that induced Him to manifest His Heart to men with all the treasures of love, mercy, grace, sanctification and salvation that It contains, in order to have a means of satisfying Its desire to pour out on them abundantly Its mercies and Its graces. It is by this means that the Sacred Heart of our loving Jesus wishes to save many souls from eternal perdition . . . This Divine Heart is like a fortress or a secure place of refuge for all poor sinners who wish to take shelter in It from the Justice of Almighty God, the thunderbolts of whose wrath, like an impetuous torrent, would overwhelm sinners and their sins, on account of the enormous number committed at the present time.”

THE DEVOTION TO THE SACRED HEART IS A SOVEREIGN REMEDY AGAINST TEPIDITY.
“Our Lord wishes through this devotion to His Divine Heart to rekindle the charity that has grown cold and has almost been extinguished in the hearts of the greater part of Christians; He wishes to give men a new means of loving God by His Sacred Heart, as much as He desires and merits, and of making reparation for their ingratitude.
“If we are cowardly, cold, impure, imperfect, the Sacred Heart is an ardent furnace in which we must purify and perfect ourselves like gold in the crucible. It will purify all that is imperfect in our actions; it will sanctify those that are good.”

PROMISES MADE IN FAVOR OF THE JUST

“There is no shorter way of attaining perfection than to render to the Divine Heart an the homage, love, honor and praise in our power.

“I do not know of any other exercise in the spiritual life more calculated to raise a soul in a short time to the height of perfection, and make it taste the true sweetness that is to be found in the service of God; if it were known how pleasing this devotion is to Jesus Christ, there is no Christian, however little his love for our amiable Savior, who would not begin to practice it immediately.”

“The names of beginners,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “are written on the adorable Heart of Jesus only with ink. This signifies the initial grace given us to combat and conquer our imperfections, especially our proud self-love, which insinuates itself everywhere, sullying and disfiguring our holiest actions. These black letters should be purified from the earth which they contain and made bright in the crucible. This means that our inclinations and actions should be purified in the furnace of the love of the Divine Heart from all that is earthly and human and from all self-seeking.

“These black letters will gradually brighten in the crucible of Divine Love, and become like silver, which signifies purity of heart. But when in the process of purification all the black letters are changed into letters of silver, we must not stop there, we must continue until they are changed into gold.

“It is love that will change them into gold. Charity is the divine gold that will write our names on the Heart of Jesus in letters never to be effaced. We shall then become like holocausts, consumed completely in the ardent flames of the loving Heart of Jesus.”

PROMISES FOR THE AFFLICTED

a) THE HEART OF JESUS CONSOLES HIS SERVANTS IN THEIR PRIVATE CALAMITIES.
b) THE HEART OF JESUS IS THE TRUE SOURCE OF CONSOLATION IN PUBLIC CALAMITIES.

PROMISES THAT HAVE REFERENCE TO OUR LAST END 

THE GREAT PROMISE
This promise is contained in a letter written in May, 1688, by St. Margaret Mary to Mother Saumaise:
“On a Friday during Holy Communion, He said these words to His unworthy slave, if I mistake not: I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that Its all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on nine first Fridays of the month consecutively, the grace of final repentance; they will not die under My displeasure or without receiving their Sacraments, My Divine Heart making Itself their assured refuge at the last moment.”

With regard to this promise it may be remarked: 1) that Our Lord required Communion to be received on a particular day chosen by Him; 2) that the nine Fridays must be consecutive; 3) that they must be made in honor of His Sacred Heart, which means that those who make the nine Fridays must practice the devotion and must have a great love for Our Lord; 4) that Our Lord does not say that those who make the nine Fridays will be dispensed from any of their obligations or from exercising the vigilance necessary to lead a good life and overcome temptation; rather He implicitly promises abundant graces to those who make the Nine Fridays to help them to carry out these obligations and persevere to the end; 5) that perseverance in receiving Holy Communion for nine consecutive First Fridays helps the faithful to acquire the habit of frequent Communion, which Our Lord eagerly desires; and 6) finally, that the practice of the Nine Fridays is very pleasing to Our Lord since He promises such a great reward, and that all Catholics should endeavor to make the Nine Fridays.

PROTECTION PROMISED BY OUR LORD AT THE MOMENT OF DEATH

“The Divine Heart of Jesus again gave me to understand and assured me,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “that the pleasure which He takes in being known, loved and honored by His creatures is so great that He promised me that none of those who practice this amiable devotion and are devoted to His adorable Heart will ever perish.”

SPECIAL REWARDS IN HEAVEN FOR THOSE WHO ARE DEVOTED TO THE SACRED HEART

“The adorable Heart of Jesus has shown inexpressible favor to our Holy Founder [St. Francis de Sales] because the devotion has been established in our Institute. Never has his accidental glory been so much increased as by this means. [The order is the Visitation Order.]
“Our good Father Claude de la Colombiere by his intercession in Heaven is the cause of what takes place here on earth for the glory of the Sacred Heart.”

PROMISES MADE FOR PEOPLE IN THE WORLD AND THEIR FAMILIES

“Our Divine Lord assured me,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “that He takes such pleasure in being known, loved and honored by His creatures, that He promises: 1) that people in the world will find through this amiable devotion all the helps necessary for their state of life, that is to say; 2) peace in their families: He promised me that He will unite families that are divided. Our Divine Lord wishes us to have great charity for our neighbor; He wishes us to pray to Him for our neighbor as we would for ourselves, for it is one of the special effects of this devotion to unite hearts divided and to bring peace to souls; 3) consolation in their afflictions; 4) solace in their labors: He promised that He would protect and assist families that were in any necessity, if they addressed themselves to Him with confidence; 5) the blessings of Heaven on all their enterprises; 6) that in His Sacred Heart they would find refuge during their life and especially at the hour of their death.”

SPECIAL PROMISES MADE TO PERSONS CONSECRATED TO GOD 

PROMISES MADE TO RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES

“Our Divine Lord promised me,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “that as His Sacred Heart is the source of all blessings, He will pour out the sweet unction of His ardent charity on all those communities where His Sacred Heart is honored and who place themselves under Its special protection.
“He promised me that He would keep their hearts united so that they would form but one.
“He promised me that He would turn away the thunderbolts of Divine Justice from them and restore them to favor, if they should fall.

“Let religious embrace this amiable devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, for they will draw from It such help that no other means will be needed to reestablish in their first fervor and in the most exact observance of their rule those communities that have become lax, and to bring to the height of perfection communities that are already fervent.”

TEN PROMISES FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE SACRED HEART

FIRST PROMISE FOR APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION

“My Divine Master;’ writes St. Margaret Mary, “showed me the names of several persons written in letters of gold on His Sacred Heart, names of which He will never allow to be effaced. These are the names of the persons who have labored the most to make His Sacred Heart known and loved.”

SECOND PROMISE FOR APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


“The Sacred Heart of Jesus has such a great desire to be known, loved and honored by men; He wishes so ardently to establish the empire of His love in all hearts by destroying in them the empire of Satan, that He promises great recompenses to all those who devote themselves with their whole hearts to establishing the reign of His Sacred Heart according to the lights and graces which He gives them.”

THIRD PROMISE FOR APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


In addition to the friendship of the Divine Heart, the apostles of the Devotion are assured of the protection of the Blessed Virgin and of the Saints, especially of St. Margaret Mary.
She writes: “Oh! what happiness for us and for all who contribute in making the loving Heart of Jesus known and glorified! For they will draw down upon themselves the friendship and eternal blessings of this unique Love of our hearts. The Blessed Virgin will be their special protectress, she will assist them in attaining to the perfect life.”

FOURTH PROMISE FOR APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


The apostles of the Sacred Heart will make rapid progress in virtue. The Sacred Heart of Jesus will sanctify and glorify them.


“The loving Heart of Jesus,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “has made known to me that He will take care to sanctify and glorify us before His Heavenly Father in the measure in which we exert ourselves to procure glory for Him and to increase the reign of His love in the hearts of men.”

FIFTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


The apostles of the Sacred Heart will receive the grace of the pure love of God.
“The zeal with which you labor to make the Sacred Heart of Jesus known and loved will gain for you in an ever increasing degree the crowning gift of the pure love of God.”

SIXTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


The apostles of the Sacred Heart will draw down special blessings on their native land and on their families.


“Oh! what happiness for those who contribute to making the adorable Heart of Jesus known, loved and glorified! By what means they will secure a powerful Protector for their native land.”

SEVENTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


Great blessings are reserved for the works of zeal undertaken by those apostolic workers who propagate the devotion to the Sacred Heart. They will make great conversions.


“My divine Savior,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “assured me that those who labor for the salvation of souls will have the art of touching the hardest hearts and will obtain marvelous success, if they themselves are animated with a tender devotion to His Divine Heart.


“He will penetrate the most unfeeling hearts by the words of His preachers and faithful friends. He will so pour out the sweet unction of His ardent charity with such strong and powerful graces on their words that He will make them like a flaming sword which will cause the most frozen hearts to melt in His love. The words of these apostles will be like two-edged swords, which will penetrate the most hardened hearts and make the holy fountain of penance spring up in them, purifying and sanctifying the most obstinate sinners and rendering them susceptible to the love of this Divine Heart. By this means the most criminal souls will be led on to salutary penance.”

EIGHTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


It will be given to the apostles of the Sacred Heart to understand the inestimable value of the Cross, and they will obtain strength and consolation in their difficulties.


“The adorable Heart of Jesus,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “wishes to establish the reign of His pure love in all hearts. Happy are those whom He will employ to aid Him to establish His reign! But He did not tell me that His friends would have nothing to suffer, for He wishes them to make their greatest happiness consist in tasting its bitterness.”

NINTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION



The apostles of the Sacred Heart will obtain the grace of final perseverance and of a holy death.

TENTH PROMISE FOR THE APOSTLES OF THE DEVOTION


The Sacred Heart Itself will be the reward of Its apostles. “Happy are those,” writes St. Margaret Mary, “whom the Sacred Heart of Jesus will employ in establishing His reign. For it seems to me .that It is like a king who thinks only of recompensing His friends while He gains victories and triumphs over His enemies. When this Heart reigns victorious on Its throne, It will be Itself their eternal recompense.”

PARTICULAR PROMISES MADE AND SPECIAL MISSION ENTRUSTED TO THE ORDER OF THE VISITATION AND TO THE JESUIT FATHERS

“This mission,” writes Father Ramiere, S.J., “is not of an exclusive character. It is a source of joy for the Sisters of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and the confreres of Blessed Claude de la Colombiere to see their efforts shared by religious of the various orders and congregations, by secular priests of every rank and even by the simple faithful.”

Prayers were approved by Pope Pius IX
The 14th of June 1303, at the moment Bridget was born, Benedict, the curate of Rasbo, prayed for the happy deliverance of Ingeborde. Suddenly he found himself enveloped by a luminous cloud out of which Our Lady appeared: “A child has been born at Birger; her voice will be heard by the entire world.” Sagii, die XXIV Aprilis 1903Imprimatur F. J. GIRARD, V.G.

Pope Pius IX took cognizance of these Prayers with the prologue; he approved them May 31, 1862, recognizing them as true and for the good of souls.This sentence of Pope Pius IX has been confirmed by the realization of the promises by all persons who have recited the prayers and by numerous supernatural facts by which God wanted to make known their exact truth. A collection of small books, these prayers among them, was approved by the Great Congress of Malines on August 22, 1863.


Question – Must one recite the Prayers everyday without interruption to obtain the privileges? Answer – One should miss saying them as few times as possible; but if for a serious reason one is obliged to miss them, one doesn’t lose the privileges attached to them, as long as one recites 5480 Prayers during the year. One must say them with devotion and concentrate on the words one pronounces.These prayers can serve as the Way of the Cross.


Visitors to the Church of St. Paul at Rome can see the crucifix, above the Tabernacle in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, scupltured by Pierre Cavallini, before which St. Bridget knelt when she received these 15 Prayers from Our Lord. The following inscription is placed in the church to commemorate the event: “Pendentis, Pendente Dei verba accepit aure accipit et verbum corde Brigitta Deum. Anno Jubilei MCCCL.”

54 DAY ROSARY NOVENA Origin and Method

This devotion, which the author has called the ‘Rosary Novenas to Our Lady,’ is of comparatively recent origin. In an apparition of Our Lady of Pompeii, which occurred in 1884 at Naples, in the house of Commander Agrelli, the heavenly Mother deigned to make known the manner in which she desires to be invoked.


For thirteen months Fortuna Agrelli, the daughter of the Commander, had endured dreadful sufferings and torturous cramps; she had been given up by the most celebrated physicians. On February 16, 1884, the afflicted girl and her relatives commenced a novena of Rosaries. The Queen of the Holy Rosary favored her with an apparition on March 3rd. Mary, sitting upon a high throne, surrounded by luminous figures, held the divine Child on her lap, and in her hand a Rosary. The Virgin Mother and the holy Infant were clad in goldembroidered garments. They were accompanied by St. Dominic and St. Catherine of Siena. The throne was profusely decorated with flowers; the beauty of Our Lady was marvelous.


Mary looked upon the sufferer with maternal tenderness, and the patient saluted her with the words: ‘Queen of the Holy Rosary, be gracious to me; restore me to health! I have already prayed to thee in a novena, O Mary, but have not yet experienced thy aid. I am so anxious to be cured!’


‘Child,’ responded the Blessed Virgin, thou hast invoked me by various titles and hast always obtained favors from me. Now, since thou hast called me by that title so pleasing to me, ‘Queen of the Holy Rosary,’ I can no longer refuse the favor thou dost petition; for this name is most precious and dear to me. Make three novenas, and thou shalt obtain all.’


Once more the Queen of the Holy Rosary appeared to her and said, ‘Whoever desires to obtain favors from me should make three novenas of the prayers of the Rosary, and three novenas in thanksgiving.’
“This miracle of the Rosary made a very deep impression on Pope Leo XIII, and greatly contributed to the fact that in so many circular letters he urged all Christians to love the Rosary and say it fervently.”


The Novena consists of five decades of the Rosary each day for twenty seven days in petition; then immediately five decades each day for twenty seven days in thanksgiving. whether or not the request has been granted.


The meditations vary from day to day. On the first day meditate on the Joyful Mysteries: on the second day the Sorrowful Mysteries: on the third day the Glorious Mysteries: on the fourth day meditate again on the Joyful Mysteries; and so on throughout the fifty four days.


A laborious Novena, but a Novena of Love. You who are sincere will not find it too difficult, if you really wish to obtain your request. Should you not obtain the favor you seek, be assured that the Rosary Queen, who knows what each one stands most in need of, has heard your prayer. You will not have prayed in vain. No prayer ever went unheard. And Our Blessed Lady has never been known to fail.


Look upon each Hail Mary as a rare and beautiful rose which you lay at Mary’s feet. These spiritual roses, bound in a wreath with Spiritual communions, will be a most pleasing and acceptable gift to her, and will bring down upon you special graces.


If you would reach the innermost recesses of her heart, lavishly bedeck your wreath with spiritual diamonds holy communions. Then her joy will be unbounded, and she will open wide the channel of her choicest graces to you.

PRAYERS REVEALED BY OUR LORD TO SR. MARIE DE SAINT-PIERRE

PRAYERS REVEALED BY OUR LORD TO SR. MARIE DE SAINT-PIERRE

“By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.” – Our Lord To Sr. Marie de Saint-Pierre – November 1846
 
On November 24, 1843, Our Lord spoke the following words to the French Carmelite, Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre: “The earth is covered with crimes. The violation of the first three Commandments of God has irritated My Father. The Holy Name of God blasphemed, and the Holy Day of the Lord profaned, fills up the measure in iniquities. These sins have risen unto the Throne of God and provoked His wrath which will soon burst forth if His justice be not appeased. At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch.” Our Lord appeared several times to Sister Marie to ask for reparation to be done to His Holy Face. These revelations enjoy the full approval of the Catholic Church.
 
Heaven has told us through Sister Marie that the Holy Face of Jesus is a symbol of the Catholic Religion. Is this not a veiled prophecy for the Church of our day? The crisis of Faith that has stricken the Church since the 1960’s is one that has corrupted and disfigured the face of Catholicism.
 
Promises of Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sr. Marie in favor of those who honor and adore His Holy Face
  • By My Holy Face you will work “WONDERS,” appease the anger of God and draw down Mercy for the conversion of sinners.
  • NOTHING THAT YOU ASK in virtue of this offering will be refused you! Ah! If you did but know how pleasing is the sight of My Face to My Father!
  • In proportion to your care in repairing the injuries My Face receives from Blasphemers, will I take care of yours, which has been disfigured by sin; I will restore it to My likeness, and render it as beautiful as when it had just left the Baptismal Font.
  • Our Lord promised me that all those who defend His cause in this work of reparation, by words, by prayers, or in writing, He will defend them before His Father; at their death He will purify their souls by effacing all the blots of sin and will restore to them their primitive beauty.
  1. The Golden Arrow Prayer
    An act of Praise and Reparation dictated by Our Lord to Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre.
    May the Most Holy, Most Sacred, Most Adorable, Most Incomprehensible and Unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified, in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth, by all the creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. Amen.
    After receiving this prayer, Sister Marie was given a vision in which she saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus delightfully wounded by the “Golden Arrow” as torrents of graces streamed from It for the conversion of sinners.
    PRAYERS

    • O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech Thee, above all, to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what Thou requires of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.
    • Eternal Father, we offer Thee the adorable Face of Thy well-beloved Son, for the honor and glory of Thy Holy Name and for the salvation of our country. (Our Lord complains that the nation is provoking the Justice of God and that the Holy Face should be offered in reparation or else the guilty country will reap chastisements. – Jan. 23, 1846)
    • Eternal Father, I ask of Thee as many souls as was the number of the drops of Blood as Thy Divine Son shed in His Passion. (She was given a vision of Hell and the multitude of souls falling in, and was invited to pray for poor sinners. Dec. 21, 1846).
    • Eternal Father, I offer Thee Our Savior, Jesus Christ for the expiation of my sins and for the needs of Holy Church.
    • Our Lord told Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre on March 16, 1844, “Oh if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once, ‘Admirable is the Name of God,’ in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy.” (say often)
    • Be merciful to us, O my God and reject not our prayers, when amid our afflictions, we call upon Thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Thine adorable Face.
    • Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with Blood, Sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crimes of communists, blasphemers and by the profaners of His Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday.
    • Eternal Father, look upon the Sacred Heart of Jesus which I offer to Thee as a vase that it might receive the wine of Thy Justice and in passing through this Holy Channel that it may be changed for us into the Wine of Thy Mercy!”. Amen. (This prayer was dictated also and He told her ‘by passing through this Holy Channel, the biter wine of God’s anger would be changed for us into the Sweet Wine of His Mercy”.) Oct. 25, 1846 Note: This prayer saved the country from the conspiracy of Communists.
    • Behold, Oh God, Our Protector and look on the Face of Thy Christ!. Amen. (Whenever we beg the Eternal Father to cast a look on the Face of His Divine Son, the rod falls from His hands.) Nov. 5, 1845.
    • I salute Thee, I adore Thee and I love Thee, Oh Adorable Face of my Beloved Jesus as the noble Stamp of Thy Divinity! Completely surrendering my soul to Thee, I most humbly beg that this Seal be affixed upon us all so that the Image of God may once more be reproduced by its imprint in our souls!”. Amen. (This Adorable Face is the Divine Stamp which has the power of imprinting our souls, the image of God.) Nov. 5, 1845.
    • Eternal Father, we offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus to appease Thy anger and obtain the conversion of the wicked and the blasphemers. Amen. (By virtue of this Holy Face, offered to the Eternal Father, we can appease His anger and obtain the conversion of the wicked and of blasphemers. A picture of the Holy Face should be the exterior symbol to be venerated by members in the Work of Reparation.)  Oct. 27, 1845. “Our Lord invited me to kiss most lovingly the Image of His Holy Face in a spirit of Reparation”. Oct. 28, 1845.
    • Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ and all the other instruments of His Holy Passion, that You may put division in the camp of Your enemies, for as Your Beloved Son has said, ‘A kingdom divided against itself shall fall’. Amen. (Revealed by Our Lord March 29, 1847 when “Our Lord commanded her to make war on the communists because He said they were the enemies of the Church and of her Christ”.) This prayer can be said to bring division within the terrorist groups. By offering up the Holy Face of Jesus and saying this prayer to God the Father, God the Father can cause internal fighting within the terrorist organizations plotting terror around the world. Jesus said…’A Kingdom divided against itself shall fall’.
    • May God arise and let His enemies be scattered and let all those who hate Him flee before His Face! May the thrice Holy Name of God overthrow all their plans! May the Holy Name of the living God split them up by disagreements! May the terrible Name of the God of Eternity stamp out all their godlessness! Amen. (Ejaculation given by Our Lord for her battle against Communism, April 6, 1847. This prayer can also be said to put division within the terrorist groups.)


    Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre offered up the Holy Face of Jesus 100 times each day to God the Father.
