  • The infallible promise associated with devotion to the Holy Shoulder Wound as follows (see also the immense indulgence attached to it at the base!)

    And here are other marvellous promises:

    Our Lord said to French stigmatic Marie-Julie Jahenny:


    “I am looking for souls who love Me to sympathize with My sufferings.”

    It is related in the annals of Clairvaux that St. Bernard asked Our Lord which was His greatest unrecorded suffering, and Our Lord answered:

    “I had on My Shoulders, while I bore My Cross on the Way of Sorrow, a grievous Wound, which was more painful than the others, and which is not recorded by men. Honour this Wound with thy devotion, and I will grant thee whatsoever thou doest ask through its virtue and merit, and in regard to all those who shall venerate this Wound, I will remit to them all their venial sins, and will no longer remember their mortal sins.”

    Our Lord said much more to Marie-Julie about this devotion.

    “Oh! Consider how I suffered this Wound so deep and little known. I desire that the faithful come to rest their lips on My Wound, that the breath (sighs) of their hearts soften My Wound.” (March 29, 1878)

    Our Lord showed Marie-Julie this Wound and revealed It’s depth to her:

    “The pain is incomprehensible in the hearts of My children!!! How this devotion pleases and console Me, how often have the prayers of these Wounds have risen to My Heart and have torn (open) the salvation of souls entrusted to Hell.” (May 17, 1878)

    Our Lord revealed to Marie-Julie additional promises that would be granted to those who venerate His Wound of the Shoulder and spread the devotion:

    1) “I will bless all the souls who propagate this devotion: I grant them abundant graces.” (March 29, 1878)

    2) “O souls who love Me, who propagate this devotion, I take you under My protection, I keep you under the mantle of My affection.” (March 29, 1878)

    3) “I will dispel the darkness that will come in their hearts.” (December 28, 1877)

    4) “I will console them in their pains.” “I will come in the midst of their greatest afflictions, to enlighten, to comfort them.” (February 8, 1878) (December 28, 1877, February 8, and April 12, 1878)

    5) “I will come to bless them in their undertakings.” (March 29, 1878)

    6) “I will give them a tender love for the Cross. I will come to assist them at the time of death with this cross and I will introduce them into My Heavenly Kingdom.” (April, 12 1878)

    7) “I will sweeten their agony.” (December 28, 1877) “I will come at the hour of death. I will console them in their passage.” (February 8, 1878) “Especially at the hour of death, I will come to give them a sweet moment of calm and tranquillity. I will tell them: ‘O good holy soul, who has spread this devotion that I had so much at heart that it be made known, come to receive the reward of your labours, the fruit of blessing.” (March 29, 1878)

    8) “I will shelter them, I will assist them, I will console all the souls that seek to propagate this Sacred Wound. At the time of death, I will console the souls that have compensated Me by their devotion and compassion to the Wound so deep and painful. I will come to strengthen them in their final fears. I will come and prepare their passage: Thank you, you who have compensated Me for My Pains.” (May 17, 1878)

    9) “See,” Jesus said, pointing to His Wound with extreme tenderness, “all My children who have recognized this Wound, who have venerated It, have prayed to It, will have on the Last Day a great and generous reward. I do not simply show it, I pronounce it. My Word is Divine.” (May 1878)


    (Note promise number 2, Our Lord said, “O souls who love Me,”. We must remember that those who love Him keep His commandments.)

    Meditations we should reflect on while venerating the Holy Wound on His Shoulder:

    1) The infinite generosity of Our Lord Jesus Christ for having willingly taken upon Himself our iniquities. (March 29, 1878)
    2) His immense goodness in promising to carry our thankless sins on the road to Calvary. (December 28, 1878) He was overwhelmed, even to succumbing to the painful falls on the Way of the Cross. (February 8, 1878)
    3) Marie-Julie: “Lord, it is our sins that You carry n this bloody and bruised Shoulder. It is our sins that make you suffer great incomprehensible pains as large as the sea. They are our sins that tore Your Sacred Flesh, which turned the Cross crimson.”
    4) The infinite tenderness with which Our Lord Jesus Christ suffered this cruel Wound, which shows how heavy are our iniquities. Sympathize with this immense pain, so little known on earth. (December 28, 1877)
    5) Our Lord invites us to contemplate the Wound so deep and painful, in which we have all participated. Ask for repentance and tears, gratitude and love. (February 8, 1878) It is there that our sins were drowned.

    Marie-Julie:

    “When I see the blood that bathes the Cross, when I see it driven into this Wound, ah! Enormous weight of the Cross, how you make our Redeemer suffer! I can still see the Blood of my Divine king, marked on the paving stones of Jerusalem. Who would dare complain after such a love of Jesus crucified!” (May 17, 1878)


    A Prayer to the Wound in Christ’s Shoulder

    (Not given to Marie-Julie, but granted an Imprimatur: Thomas M. O’Leary, March 3, 1929. Bishop of Springfield 1949)


    “O most loving Jesus, meek lamb of God, I, a miserable sinner, salute and worship the most Sacred Wound of Thy Shoulder on which Thou didst bear Thy heavy Cross, which so tore Thy Flesh and laid bare Thy bones as to inflict on Thee an anguish greater than any other Wound of Thy most Blessed body. I adore Thee O Jesus most sorrowful; I praise and glorify Thee, and give Thee thanks for this most sacred and Painful Wound, beseeching Thee by that exceeding Pain and by the crushing burden of Thy heavy Cross, to be merciful to me, a sinner, to forgive me all my mortal and venial sins and to lead me on towards Heaven along the Way of Thy Cross. Amen.”



    "As long as you have a lowly body, you will suffer, but it is a very short hour. Your suffering is of great value for the salvation of souls." Our Lady to Marie-Julie, August 23, 1928
