Devotion to the Sacred Heart began in the year 1672. On repeated occasions, Jesus appeared to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, a Visitation nun, in France, and during these apparitions He explained to her the devotion to His Sacred Heart as He wanted people to practice it. He asked to be honored in the symbol of His Heart of flesh; He asked for acts of reparation, for frequent communion especially during First Fridays of the month, and the keeping of the Holy Hour.
Devotees may also take part in the Pledge of Devotion program of the station in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The prayer request, petition, thanksgiving and other intentions will be offered at the Holy Mass and rosary prayer at the Our Lady of Veritas Chapel in Quezon City. Also, the names of the devotees will also be announced in the different programs of the station, and they will also be given a pledge of devotion certificate to certify their pledge as well as a Sacred Heart of Jesus scapular.
