  • 1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.

     2. I will establish peace in their families.

     3. I will console them in all their troubles.

     4. They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of their death.

     5. I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.

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

     7. Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.

     8. Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.

     9. I will bless the homes where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.

     10. I will give to devotees of My Heart the power of touching the most hardened hearts.

     11. Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be effaced.

     12. The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under my displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.


    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

  • Thanks Cantarella. Does anyone know if these 33 promises (made for 9 consecutive First Fridays together with 9 consecutive First Saturdays) are legitimate? This is from this site.

    All that they demand through the Heart of My Mother, provided that their requests are compatible with the Will of the Father, I will grant them during the novena. They will experience in every circumstance the extraordinary assistance of My Mother as well as Her blessings. Peace, harmony and love will reign in their souls and the souls of the members of their families. I will protect their families from scandals, disappointments, injustice. Married couples will remain together, and if one of the spouses left the home, he or she will come back. The members of their families will understand each other and persevere in the Faith. Expectant mothers will experience the special protection of My Mother and receive what they demand for themselves and their children. The poor will receive shelter and food. I will lead them to love prayer and suffering. They will learn to love God and their neighbors. The sinners will be converted without difficulty, even though somebody else makes this novena for them. The sinners will not fall back into their previous state. They will not only receive forgiveness for their sins, but also a perfect contrition and, through love, they will recover the innocence of their Baptism. Those who make this novena in the state of innocence of their Baptism (particularly the children) will not offend My Heart by a grave fault until the time of their death. The sinners who sincerely repent will not only escape Hell but also Purgatory. The lukewarm will become fervent believers; they will persevere and reach perfection and saintliness in no time. If parents or other members of a family make this novena, no member of that family will be condemned to Hell. Many young will be called to religious life, including the priesthood. Unbelievers will become believers, and those who wander without direction (Catholics who broke away) will return to the Church. Priests and religious will remain faithful to their vocation. The infidel will receive the grace of a sincere contrition and the possibility of returning to one's vocation. Parents and leaders will receive assistance for their spiritual and material needs. The body will be freed from the temptations of the world and from sin. The proud and the arrogant will become humble; the temperate will be burning with love. Fervent souls will experience the sweetness of prayer and sacrifice; they will never be tormented by anxiety or doubt. The dying will depart this world without agony and without the attacks of Satan. The dying will experience an immense desire for eternal life. So they will surrender to My Will and depart this life in the arms of My Mother. They will experience the extraordinary protection of My Mother on the day of the Last Judgement. They will receive the grace of sharing and relieving My suffering and that of My Mother. Those who endeavor to be perfect will obtain, as a privilege, the main virtues of My Mother: humility, love and purity. They will be accompanied by peace and certain inner and external joy during their lives, whether they are sick or healthy. The priests will receive the grace of living in the presence of My Mother without effort. Those who progress with Me in unity will receive the grace of experiencing this unity. They will know what it means: It does not mean that they will live longer, but that I will live within them. That is to say: I will love with their hearts, I will pray with their souls, I will speak with their tongues, I will serve with all their beings. They will experience that which is good, beautiful, holy, humble, simple, obedient, precious and admirable within them; It is Me, Me, the Almighty, the Infinite, the only Lord, the only Love. The souls of those who make this novena will be as radiant as the white lilies all around the Heart of My Mother in eternity. I, the Divine Lamb of God, united with My Father and the Holy Spirit, will always rejoice at seeing these souls who, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, will obtain the glory of eternity. The souls of the priests will always progress in the Faith and virtue.

I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.

  • I have found this to be as dependable as gravity.

    There is remarkably little information on the 33 promises. The only thing I was able to find out was that these promises were made to a certain Sister Maria Nathalie Kovacsicsi (other sources have "Kovacsics") from Hungary (of German descent) in 1942. Supposedly, Bishop Istvan Hász (+1973) recommended the promises.
