The Holy Face of Jesus

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

 

Litany of the Holy Face 


THE GOLDEN ARROW PRAYER

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable,
most incomprehensible 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.

 I salute thee, I adore thee and I love thee,
O adorable Face of Jesus, my Beloved, noble Seal of the Divinity!
Outraged anew by blasphemers,
I offer Thee, through the heart of thy most blessed Mother,
the worship of all the Angels and Saints,
most humbly beseeching thee to repair and renew
in me and in all men
thine Image disfigured by sin.
