What A Great Promise. - The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under My displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at the last hour.

I think my uncle told me something about this but I thought you were able to release someone from purgatory by doing this. Is the only requirement to attend Mass 9 first Fridays? In order? Do we have to be without attachment to sin? This one seems kinda easy…is there a catch?
Mass attendance involves going to Mass on nine consecutive First Fridays.
But by growing in the spirituality of the Sacred Heart, the nine consecutive First Friday Masses give way to striving toward greater and greater union with Christ.
Many of those who start with the nine First Friday Masses then continue to explore the spirituality of the Sacred Heart throughout their lifetimes, and begin attending more first Friday Masses and weekday Masses, spending time in adoration before the Lord, making acts of reparation to Him, etc etc.
I reached a much greater understanding of the Sacred Heart devotion after beginning to read some of the many excellent books and publications about the Sacred Heart.
