THE DOUBLE GREAT NOVENA All that they demand through the Heart of My Mother, provided that their requests are compatible with the Will of the Father, I will grant them during the novena. Although I know that there is a capability through grace which the Church gives me, there is still a treasure of graces which You give us, O Lord, when we ask You for them. (Faustina: 1474)

Here, soul, are all the treasures of My Heart. Take everything you need from it. (Faustina: 1486) WHAT IS THE DOUBLE GREAT NOVENA? The Double Great Novena consists of nine consecutive First Fridays parallel with the First Saturdays. If the people want to gain the benefits of My promises, they must love and venerate the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. The greatest sign of this reverence will be if they go to Communion, after proper preparation and repentance, on nine consecutive first Saturdays parallel with the first Fridays. Their intentions should be to console My Heart together with the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO? The following have to be done on the nine consecutive First Fridays and First Saturdays so that we can gain the benefits of the promises: - Holy Mass - confession (either on First Friday or on First Saturday, it is also possible after Mass) - reception of Holy Communion (both days) - the Rosary (at least five decades; both days) - a fifteen minute meditation on the Mysteries of the Rosary (both days) useful links: http://crossroadsinitiative.com/library_article/764/Meditation_on_the_Mysteries_of_the_R osary_John_XXIII.html http://www.priestsforlife.org/prayers/Rosary.html - On First Saturdays say the following prayer: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I offer you this Holy Communion through the Immaculate Heart of Mary to console you for all the sins committed against you.

WHERE DOES IT ORIGINATE FROM?

Sr. Natalia after the dissolution of the religious orders Sr Maria Natalia of Hungary received the 33 promises of the Double Great Novena for her 33rd birthday. The following are excerpts from her Diary: In 1934 I asked Jesus that as a remembrance of the 33 years, He walked on earth He would give us such grace that will be renewed daily in our lives. [At that time Sr. Natalia asked Jesus that she might resemble Him in everything, including the time of His death at age 33. And indeed she fell sick, so much so that the doctors gave up on her. Then Jesus asked her gently, would not she rather live a while longer and suffer for Him to save souls? She answered: if this would be your pleasure Jesus then I want to live till the end of the world, and suffer to save souls. Then Jesus in return told her she could wish for anything, and He would grant it. It was then that Sr. Natalia asked for the above grace.] Jesus answered, I will give you such a grace, and to all My human brothers and sisters, that will bring for you many joy all the days of your life. [From the data at our disposal, we deduce that Sr. Natalia received this gift on her 33rd birthday. Eight years later, during a vision written below, the Lord reinforced these promises, and then, obeying the order of her confessor, she wrote it down.] On August 15, 1942, the Lord Jesus gave me a great grace. During a vision He gave great promises for those who complete a Novena to the honor of His Sacred Heart together with the Immaculate Heart of Mary. As I prayed I saw Jesus stopped by me. He took my hand and lead me before His Immaculate Mother, then said: My child, look at your Mother as the Queen of the World. Love her, and surround her with the trust of a child. I want this from you and from everyone. Then He lifted a little the mantle of His Virgin Mother and showed me her Immaculate Heart, then turning toward the world He said: Behold the Immaculate Heart in which I placed My graces for the world and the souls.

Heart is the fountain of My graces, from which the life and sanctification of the world is originating. As the Heavenly Father gave everything to Me, in the same way I give My victorious power over the world and sin to the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. Through My daughter [St. Margaret, Alacoque, founder of the devotion to the Sacred Heart (1690)] I gave the world big promises, but since My goodness is infinite, now I offer even more. If the people want to gain the benefits of My promises, they must love and venerate the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. The greatest sign of this reverence will be if they go to Communion, after proper preparation and repentance, on nine consecutive first Saturdays parallel with the first Fridays. Their intentions should be to console My Heart together with the Immaculate Heart of My Mother. I understood that Jesus has asking the same for His Sorrowful Mother that He had asked for Himself from St. Margaret: We should console together with her the deeply offended God. I asked Jesus: Should we console His Mother too? Since she receives much ungratefulness and many blows. Jesus answered: My dear child! If someone hurts Me, that person hurts My Mother also. If someone consoles Me, this will consoles My Mother at the same time. My Mother and I are one in love. When the Saviour said this, I learned many heartening things about the unity of the two Most Sacred Hearts. Jesus also told me that if someone regularly confesses monthly, that person does not have to go to confession if that person has not committed any deadly sin since the last confession. But if the first Saturday falls on a week earlier than the first Friday, then we should go to confession if possible. Jesus taught me a prayer to be said on first Saturdays: Most Sacred Heart of Jesus I offer you this Holy Communion through the Immaculate Heart of Mary to console you for all the sins committed against you. THE THIRTY-THREE PROMISES OF JESUS, for those who will complete the Double Great Novena: 1. All that they demand through the Heart of My Mother, provided that their requests are compatible with the Will of the Father, I will grant them during the novena. 2. They will experience in every circumstance the extraordinary assistance of My Mother as well as Her blessings. 3. Peace, harmony and love will reign in their souls and the souls of the members of their families. 4. I will protect their families from scandals, disappointments, injustice. 5. Married couples will remain together, and if one of the spouses left the home, he or she will come back. 6. The members of their families will understand each other and persevere in the Faith. 7. Expectant mothers will experience the special protection of My Mother and receive what they demand for themselves and their children.

8. The poor will receive shelter and food. 9. I will lead them to love prayer and suffering. They will learn to love God and their neighbors. 10. The sinners will be converted without difficulty, even though somebody else makes this novena for them. 11. The sinners will not fall back into their previous state. They will not only receive forgiveness for their sins, but also a perfect contrition and, through love, they will recover the innocence of their Baptism. 12. Those who make this novena in the state of innocence of their Baptism (particularly the children) will not offend My Heart by a grave fault until the time of their death. 13. The sinners who sincerely repent will not only escape Hell but also Purgatory. 14. The lukewarm will become fervent believers; they will persevere and reach perfection and saintliness in a short time. 15. If parents or other members of a family make this novena, no member of that family will be condemned to Hell. 16. Many young will be called to religious life, including the priesthood. 17. Unbelievers will become believers, and those who wander without direction (Catholics who broke away) will return to the Church. 18. Priests and religious will remain faithful to their vocation. The infidel will receive the grace of a sincere contrition and the possibility of returning to one's vocation. 19. Parents and leaders will receive assistance for their spiritual and material needs. 20. The body will be freed from the temptations of the world and from sin. 21. The proud and the arrogant will become humble; the temperate will be burning with love. 22. Fervent souls will experience the sweetness of prayer and sacrifice; they will never be tormented by anxiety or doubt. 23. The dying will depart this world without agony and without the attacks of Satan. 24. The dying will experience an immense desire for eternal life. So they will surrender to My Will and depart this life in the arms of My Mother. 25. They will experience the extraordinary protection of My Mother on the day of the Last Judgement.

26. They will receive the grace of sharing and relieving My suffering and that of My Mother. 27. Those who endeavor to be perfect will obtain, as a privilege, the main virtues of My Mother: humility, love and purity. 28. They will be accompanied by peace and certain inner and external joy during their lives, whether they are sick or healthy. 29. The priests will receive the grace of living in the presence of My Mother without effort. 30. Those who progress with Me in unity will receive the grace of experiencing this unity. They will know what it means: It does not mean that they will live longer, but that I will live within them. That is to say: I will love with their hearts, I will pray with their souls, I will speak with their tongues, I will serve with all their beings. They will experience that which is good, beautiful, holy, humble, simple, obedient, precious and admirable within them; It is Me, Me, the Almighty, the Infinite, the only Lord, the only Love. 31. The souls of those who make this novena will be as radiant as the white lilies all around the Heart of My Mother in eternity. 32. I, the Divine Lamb of God, united with My Father and the Holy Spirit, will always rejoice at seeing these souls who, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, will obtain the glory of eternity. 33. The souls of the priests will always progress in the Faith and virtue. The greatest promise of Mary: The gates of Hell will be closed on the First Saturdays of each month. Nobody will go to Hell on those days. However, the gates of Purgatory will be open. So, many souls will be able to reach Heaven. It is the result of the merciful Love of My Son it is the reward of these souls who venerate My Immaculate Heart. The authorities of the Church wanted me to ask the Savior why He asked for nine consecutive first Saturdays, while Mary asked for only five. The Divine Savior replied: The request of My Mother for Five Saturdays is a sign of Her humility and consequently, She did not consider Herself worthy of receiving a devotion that is equal to Mine. My request is a sign of My love, I cannot bear the idea of demanding more for Me than for My Mother who is united with Me in Love. From this 1 understood that the reason why we should make reparation on nine consecutive Saturdays is because Jesus asked for nine Fridays for Himself from St. Margaret Alacoque. With that we will console Jesus and honor Our Lady, giving ourselves to her, and thus through her Immaculate Heart we will arrive to Jesus.
