Special Promises For Those Who Honor the Sacred Heart:
12 Promises were revealed to St. Mary Margaret for those who are willing to respond to the request of the Heart of Jesus and make an effort to return His love. We are confident in a few things related to these Promises. First, they have been approved by the Catholic Church. Second, they have been fulfilled many times in the lives of ordinary people around the world. Third, They are nothing else, but an extension of the promises of Christ found in the Gospels. Father Karl Rahner expanded on this idea when he said,
“Take their entirely, these promises affirm and offer no more than Our Lord Himself promised in the Gospel to absolute faith (Mt. 17:20, 21:21, Mk 16:17, Jn 14:12). What is new in these promises is therefore not their content, but the circumstances of their fulfillment, the fact that what has already been promised in substance in the Gospel is now attached precisely to devotion to the Sacred Heart.”
These promises depend upon our ability to carry them out with faith and devotion.
The first promise: “I (Jesus) will give them all of the graces necessary for their state in life.”These promises are the correct medicine for the culture in which we live, the pace we keep and the lives we live. No matter if you live under a rock, in a high-rise, a farmhouse, a suburban subdivision, a condo, a patio home or a trailer home, we all need the graces we need to live faithfully for our state in life! I can tell you that by enthroning my home and honoring the Lord’s heart, little miracles are happening daily and I am a better parent for it! For many of us, the place we struggle the most is with our loved ones. We need extra graces to not only remain faithful but to handle the crosses associated with our state in our life every day. I don't know a Catholic who would not agree that it is difficult to be a practicing Catholic, raising a family, in this culture. We all could use these graces associated with honoring Our Lord's Sacred Heart. So, if you could use a spiritual boost or want to discover a new source of graces for your state in life or a painful situation, turn to the Sacred Heart and consider honoring Our Lord in this particular way so that He can rule in your life.
