How to Do First Friday Devotion at RICA

Jesus made 12 promises to St. Margaret Mary in favor of those who consecrate to the Sacred Heart, in a spirit of reparation, on the First Friday of each month.

1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
2. I will establish peace in their homes.
3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions.
4. I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death.
5. I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
6. Sinners will find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
7. Lukewarm souls shall become fervent.
8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection.
9. I will bless every place in which an image of My Heart is exposed and honored.
10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
11. Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart.
12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in My disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

The Church grants a Plenary indulgence to those who attend Mass and receive Communion in honor of The Sacred Heart of Jesus on the First Friday of each month for nine (9) consecutive months.

At RICA, you can begin by visiting Jesus inside the Sanctuary of Universal Love and Devotion (SULOD) which comprises the inner sanctum of Mama Mary.

2. Light a candle for your intentions at the Candle House.
3. Attend the Healing Mass at 11 AM at the Chapel on the Hill.
4. Receive the Sacred Oil of Gladness and Healing after the Mass.
5. Eat a vegetarian lunch at the RICA Pasilungan Restaurant. Friday should be meatless for those who care for their body, their soul, and the earth.
