Our Lord makes known the Devotion of the First Fridays: June 1674

“On the First Friday of each month, the above-mentioned
grace connected with the pain in my side was renewed in
the following manner: the Sacred Heart was represented
to me as a resplendent sun, the burning rays of which
fell vertically upon my heart, which was inflamed with
a fire so fervid that it seemed as if it would reduce
me to ashes. It was at these times especially that my
Divine Master taught me what He required of me and
disclosed to me the secrets of His loving Heart. On one
occasion, while the Blessed Sacrament was exposed,
feeling wholly withdrawn within myself by an
extraordinary recollection of all my senses and powers,
Jesus Christ, my sweet Master, presented Himself to me,
all resplendent with glory, His Five Wounds shining
like so many suns. Flames issued from every part of His
Sacred Humanity, especially from His Adorable Breast,
which resembled an open furnace and disclosed to me His
most loving and most amiable Heart, which was the
living source of these flames. It was then that He made
known to me the ineffable marvels of His pure love and
showed me to what an excess He had loved men, from whom
He received only ingratitude and contempt.

“I feel this more than all that I suffered
during My Passion. If only they would make Me
some return for My Love, I should think but
little of all I have done for them and would
wish, were it possible, to suffer still more.
But the sole return they make for all My
eagerness to do them good is to reject Me and
treat Me with coldness. Do you at least
console Me by supplying for their
ingratitude, as far as you are able.”

“On representing to Him my inability, He replied:”

“Behold, this will supply for all that is
wanting to you.”

“And at the same time His Divine Heart being opened,
there issued from It a flame so ardent that I thought I
should be consumed, for I was wholly penetrated with
it, and being no longer able to bear it, I besought Him
to have pity on my weakness.”

“I will be your strength. Fear nothing, but
be attentive to My voice and to what I shall
require of you that you may be in the
requisite disposition for the accomplishment
of My designs. In the first place you shall
receive Me in Holy Communion as often as
obedience (to your confessor and superiors)
will permit you, despite the mortification
and humiliation it may cause you, which you
must receive as pledges of My Love. You
shalt, moreover, communicate on the First
Friday of each month. Every night between the
Thursday and the (first) Friday I will make
you share in My mortal sadness which I was
pleased to feel in the Garden of Olives, and
this sadness, without you being able to
understand it, shall reduce you to a kind of
agony harder to endure than death itself. And
in order to bear Me company in the humble
prayer that I then offered to My Father, in
the midst of My anguish, you shall rise
between 11 P.M. and midnight, and remain
prostrate with Me for an hour, not only to
appease the divine anger by begging mercy for
sinners, but also to mitigate in some way the
bitterness which I felt at that time on
finding Myself abandoned by My Apostles,
which obliged Me to reproach them for not
being able to watch one hour with Me. During
that hour you shall do what I shall teach
you. But listen, My daughter, believe not
lightly and trust not every spirit, for Satan
is enraged and will seek to deceive you.
Therefore, do nothing without the approval of
those who guide you; being thus under the
authority of obedience, his efforts against
you will be in vain, for he has no power over
the obedient.”
