"I promise to assist at the hour of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months, shall confess, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary, and keep me company for fifteen minutes while meditating on fifteen mysteries of the Rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."

On December 27, 1763, St. Margaret Mary Alocoque received her first vision of Jesus during Eucharistic Adoration. As noted in Divine Mercy in the Second Greatest Story Ever Told, (Father Michael Gaitley, MIC) Jesus appeared to her to counter the effects of Jansenism. Jansenism promoted our unworthiness and created a great fear of God, drawing us away from Him. Jesus appearing to St. Margaret Mary with his Sacred Heart exposed, sought to lead us back to the love, forgiveness and mercy of God. Jesus gave us Twelve Promises.

She asked Lucia for the promotion of the First Saturday Devotion and explained the offenses that were being committed against her Immaculate Heart.
