3. I will console them in all their difficulties.

4. I will be their secure refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.

5. I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.

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

7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent.

8. Fervent souls shall quickly grow to high perfection.

9. I will bless every place in which a picture of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.

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

11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.

12. I promise in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the First Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My displeasure nor without receiving the Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in the last moment.” (As quoted from the Priests of the Sacred Heart’s “Daily Prayers” booklet.)
