The promises associated with First Friday are wonderful! Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary and revealed his Sacred Heart burning with love for mankind. The nine First Fridays make me think of the nine months of carrying a child. Think of it -- making nine First Fridays can give birth to a lifelong devotion to the heart of Jesus that can make each of us, in the words of St. Teresa of Avila, a "burning furnace of charity." Ah...how I long for that gift.
O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto thine.
