The Holy Face of Jesus

Domenico Fetti, “The Veil of Veronica”, c. 1620

 

Devotions to the Holy Face

Start your devotions by reciting the Golden Arrow Prayer, dictated by our Lord to Sister Mary of St. Peter.

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incompre-hensible and unutterable Name of God be ever praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified, in heaven, on earth, and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.  Amen.

Recite the following prayers devoutly and reverently.

O Lord, Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before thine adorable Face to ask of thee the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech thee, above all, to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what thou requirest of us by thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.  Amen.

O good Jesu, who hast said, 'Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you,' grant us, O Lord, that faith which obtaineth all, and supply in us what may be deficient; grant us, by the pure effect of thy charity, and for thine eternal glory, the graces which we need and we look for from thine infinite mercy.  Amen.

Be merciful unto us, O my God, ad reject not our prayers, when amidst our afflictions we call upon thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence thine adorable Face.  Amen.

O Almighty and Everlasting God, look upon the Face of thy beloved Son our Lord Jesus Christ.  We present it to thee with confidence, to implore thy pardon.  As our all-merciful Advocate doth open his mouth to plead our cause, hear his cries and behold his tears, O God, and through his infinite merits hearken to his intercession for us poor miserable sinners.  Amen.

O most adorable Face of my Jesus, my only love, my light and my life, grant that I may know, love and serve thee alone, that I may live with thee, of thee, and for thee.  Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer thee the adorable Face of thy beloved Son for the honour and glory of thy most Holy Name, for the conversion of sinners, and for the salvation of the dying.  Amen.

O divine Jesu, through thy Face and Name, save us.  Our hope is in the virtue of thy Holy Name!

You may conclude your devotions by reciting the Chaplet of the Holy Face, the Litany of the Holy Face, or simply by meditating on the Passion of our Lord and the suffering he endured for our sins. 

 "O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me a sinner."

Arise, O Lord, and let thine enemies be scattered,
and let all that hate thee flee before thy Holy Face.
