Novena in Honor of the
Most Holy Face of Jesus


"I firmly wish that my face reflecting the intimate pains of my soul,
the suffering and love of my heart, be more honored!
Whoever gazes upon me already consoles me."
(Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sister Pierina)

"All those who, attracted by my love, and venerating my countenance, shall receive, by virtue of my humanity,
a brilliant and vivid impression of my divinity.
This splendor shall enlighten the depths of their souls,
so that in eternal glory the celestial court shall marvel at the marked likeness of their features with my divine countenance."
(Our Lord Jesus Christ to St. Gertrude)


DAILY PREPARATORY PRAYER

O Most Holy and Blessed Trinity, through the intercession of Holy Mary,
whose soul was pierced through by a sword of sorrow at the sight of
the passion of her Divine Son,
we ask Thy help in making a perfect Novena of reparation with Jesus,
united with all His sorrows, love and total abandonment.

We now implore all the Angels and Saints to intercede for us
as we pray this Holy Novena to the Most Holy Face of Jesus
and for the glory of the most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

and who did manifest upon Thy Holy Face the sentiments of Thy divine heart,

Present them on our behalf to Jesus, through the merits of His most sacred Passion and Death,

how can our hearts fail to be inflamed with a holy hatred of sin,
which even now outrages Thy Adorable Face!
Lord, suffer us not to be content with mere compassion, but give us grace so closely to follow Thee in this Calvary,

The Feast of the Holy Face - Shrove Tuesday
On April 17th, 1958, His Holiness Pope Pius XII approved the observance of a Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus on Shrove Tuesday (Tuesday before Ash Wednesday).

“See how I suffer. Nevertheless, I am understood by so few. What gratitude on the part of those who say they love me. I have given My Heart as a sensible object of My great love for man and I give My Face as a sensible object of My Sorrow for the sins of man. I desire that it be honoured by a special feast on Tuesday in Quinquagesima (Shrove Tuesday – the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday). The feast will be preceded by novena in which the faithful make reparation with Me uniting themselves with my sorrow.”

(Our Lord to Mother Pierina 1938).

The HOLY FACE of JESUS
from the Veil of Veronica preserved in the Basilica of St. Peter, in the Vatican.



"By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained." -
Our Lord To Sr. Marie de Saint-Pierre - November 1846

DEVOTION TO THE
HOLY FACE OF JESUS

On November 24, 1843, Our Lord spoke the following words to the French Carmelite, Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre:
"The earth is covered with crimes. The violation of the first three Commandments of God has irritated My Father.
The Holy Name of God blasphemed, and the Holy Day of the Lord profaned, fills up the measure in iniquities.
These sins have risen unto the Throne of God and provoked His wrath which will soon burst forth if His justice be not appeased.
At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch.
" Our Lord appeared several times to Sister Marie to ask for reparation to be done to His Holy Face.
These revelations enjoy the full approval of the Catholic Church.


Heaven has told us through Sister Marie that the Holy Face of Jesus is a symbol of the Catholic Religion.
Is this not a veiled prophecy for the Church of our day?
The crisis of Faith that has stricken the Church since the 1960's is one that has corrupted and disfigured the face of Catholicism.



Promises of Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sr. Marie in favor of those who honor and adore His Holy Face

1. By My Holy Face you will work "WONDERS," appease the anger of God and draw down Mercy for the conversion of sinners.

2. NOTHING THAT YOU ASK in virtue of this offering will be refused you!
Ah! If you did but know how pleasing is the sight of My Face to My Father!

3. In proportion to your care in repairing the injuries My Face receives from Blasphemers, will I take care of yours, which has been disfigured by sin;
I will restore it to My likeness, and render it as beautiful as when it had just left the Baptismal Font.

4. Our Lord promised me that all those who defend His cause in this work of reparation, by words, by prayers, or in writing,
He will defend them before His Father; at their death He will purify their souls by effacing all the blots of sin and will restore to them their primitive beauty.



The Golden Arrow Prayer
An act of Praise and Reparation dictated by Our Lord to Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre.

May the Most Holy, Most Sacred, Most Adorable, Most Incomprehensible and
Unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified, in
Heaven, on earth, and under the earth, by all the creatures of God and by the Sacred Heart
of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar. Amen.

After receiving this prayer, Sister Marie was given a vision in which she saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus
delightfully wounded by the "Golden Arrow" as torrents of graces streamed from It for the conversion of sinners.

PRAYERS

1. 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 requires of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.

2. Eternal Father, we offer Thee the adorable Face of Thy well-beloved Son,
for the honor and glory of Thy Holy Name and for the salvation of our country.

3. Eternal Father, I ask of Thee as many souls as was the number of the drops of Blood as Thy Divine Son shed in His Passion.
(She was given a vision of Hell and the multitude of souls falling in, and was invited to pray for poor sinners. Dec. 21, 1846).

4. Eternal Father, I offer Thee Our Savior, Jesus Christ for the expiation of my sins and for the needs of Holy Church.

5. Our Lord told Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre on March 16, 1844,
"Oh if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once, 'Admirable is the Name of God,' in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy." (say often)

6. Be merciful to us, O my God and reject not our prayers, when amid our afflictions,
we call upon Thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Thine adorable Face.

7. Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus,
covered with Blood, Sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crimes of communists,
blasphemers and by the profaners of His Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday.
