PRAYERS IN HONOR OF THE HOLY FACE

Chaplet of the Holy Face

Chaplet of the Holy Face

LITTLE CHAPLET OF THE HOLY FACE

There are many “Rosaries” or “Chaplets” in addition to the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Little Chaplet of the Holy Face is a gem, which is not only very short, but also very powerful. The words of the Chaplet derive from Psalm 67 (68 in some Bibles). St. Athanasius relates that the devils, on being asked what verse in the whole Scripture they feared most, they replied, ‘That Psalm which begins: “Arise, O Lord, and let Thy enemies be scattered. Let those that hate Him flee before His Face!’ Then they are compelled to take flight.”

Like a lamb led to the slaughter, or sheep before the shearers, He was silent and uttered no cry. (Is. 52)

Act of Love to The Holy Face

Adorable Face of My Jesus, my only love, my light and my life, grant that I may see no one, except Thee, that I may love Thee alone, that I may live with Thee, of Thee, by Thee and for Thee. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ,

you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,

and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.

Show us your face and we will be saved.

Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;

the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;

made Peter weep after his betrayal,

and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.

Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:

“If you knew the gift of God!”

You are the visible face of the invisible Father,

of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:

let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.

You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness

in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:

let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.

Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,

so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,

and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,

proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,

and restore sight to the blind.

We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy,

you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Amen.

THE GOLDEN ARROW

MAY the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and ineffable Name of God, be forever praised, blessed, adored, loved and glorified, in heaven, on earth, and in the hells, 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.  (In Reparation for blasphemy)

Prayers for Sinners
By St. Therese of The Child Jesus and The Holy Face

Eternal Father, since Thou hast given me for my inheritance the adorable Face of Thy Divine Son, I offer that Face to Thee, and I beg Thee, in exchange for this coin of infinite value, to forget the ingratitude of souls dedicated to Thee, and to pardon all poor sinners.

O Jesus, Who in Thy bitter Passion didst become “the most abject of men, a man of sorrows, “ I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon once there did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead; but now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper! Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all men. The tears which well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes appear to me as so many precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase souls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value.

O Jesus, Whose adorable Face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy Divine Image and to set me on fire with Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen.

“The Holy Man of Tours” – Leo DuPont

Offering to the Eternal Father – by “Holy Man of Tours” Leo DuPont

O Almighty and Eternal God, look upon the Face of Thy Son Jesus. We present it to Thee with confidence to implore Thy pardon. The All-Merciful Advocate opens His mouth to plead our cause: hear His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through His infinite merits hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor and miserable sinners.

Holy Face Novena Prayer by The Holy Man of Tour, Leo DuPont

O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Your adorable Face, to ask of You the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech You, above all, to give us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what You require of us by Your Holy Commandments and Your Divine inspirations.
O Good Jesus, Who has said: “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you,” give us, O Lord, that faith which obtains all, or supply in us what may be deficient. Grant us, by the pure effect of Thy Charity and for Thy eternal glory, the graces we need and which we look for from Thine infinite mercy. Amen.

Be merciful to us, O God, and reject not our prayers when, amid our afflictions, we call upon Your Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Your Adorable Face.

We thank You, O Lord, for all Thy benefits, and we entreat You to engrave in our hearts feeling of love and gratitude, putting upon our lips songs of thanksgiving to Your eternal praise. Amen.

"The Shroud attracts through the Face and the broken body of Jesus and at the same time leads us to the face of every person who is suffering and unjustly persecuted. It moves us in the direction of the gift of Jesus' love." --Pope Francis 6/21/2015

Prayers to The Holy Face by Bl. Mother Maria Pierina De Michelli

O Blessed Face of my kind Savior, by the tender love and piercing sorrow of Our Lady as she beheld You in Your cruel Passion, grant us to share in this intense sorrow and love so as to fulfill the holy will of God to the utmost of our ability. Amen.

“O God, Who did constitute Your only-begotten Son the Saviour of mankind, and did command that He should be called JESUS; grant in Your Kindness that our heart’s joy in Heaven may be the Face of Him whose Holy Name we venerate on earth.” Amen.

Prayer to Reproduce the Image of God in Our Souls

Our Lord told Sr. Marie St. Pierre that the Image of His Holy Face is like a Divine Stamp, which, if applied to souls, through prayer, has the power of imprinting anew within them the Image of God.

I salute You! I adore You and I love you, Oh adorable face of my beloved Jesus, as the noble stamp of The Divinity! Completely surrendering my soul to You, I most humbly beg You to stamp this seal upon us all, so the image of God may once more be reproduced in our souls. Amen.

"Oh Jesus, who in Thy Cruel Passion didst become the "Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows," I worship Thy Divine Face." --St. Therese

Prayer for Our Families, Our Country, the World
And for Vocations

O Eternal Father, since it has pleased our Divine Saviour to reveal to mankind the power residing in His Holy Face, we now avail ourselves of this Treasure in our great needs. Since Our Saviour Himself promised that by offering to You, O Eternal Father, the Holy Face disfigured in the Passion, we can procure the settlement of all the affairs of our household, and that nothing whatsoever will be refused us, we now come before Your Throne.

Offering to You, O God, this adorable Countenance, disfigured with painful bruises and covered with shame and confusion, we beg through the merits of this Holy Face to obtain these, our most pressing needs.

Grant us pardon, Eternal Father, for the worst crimes of our age, which are atheism, blasphemy, and the desecration of Your Holy Days.

Avert from us destruction by war and its consequences, and from the malice of men who desire to stamp out religion from the face of the earth through false indoctrination, and who now stand ready to forcibly impose their wicked designs. May this offering of the Holy Face of our Saviour before Your Throne of majesty obtain for us deliverance from these evils.

Send us, O God, zealous and enlightened laborers, by conferring many vocations to the priesthood and to religion, so that by their prayers, their works, and their sacrifices they may spread the blessings of Your Church and confound Your enemies. Amen.

ACT OF REPARATION

For Blasphemy and Violation of Sunday

O God! /Infinitely worthy of all adoration and love /I prostrate myself at Your feet, /filled with

Miraculous Limpias Crucifix
Miraculous Limpias Crucifix

grief for the blasphemies uttered against Your Holy Name, /and for the offenses committed against Your divine worship /and the observances of Your Church.
O my God! /This blasphemy is the profanation of that which is most Holy /in the sight of Your inaccessible sanctuary; /it is an attack upon Your infinite majesty, /an outrage against the Face of Your Divine Son,/ a crime without excuse, /without any other motive than that wickedness which hates You,/ O God,/ infinitely worthy of all love!/ We beg pardon,/ for these blasphemies./ Would that we could prevent them by the sacrifice of all that we are,/ or that we possess!/ At least it is in the sincerity of our hearts /that we desire with all our power/ to combat this horrible crime,/ and for all we hear or know/ to offer instantly,/ by the merits of the Face of Jesus Christ,/ our humble and sorrowful expiation.
But that which is most grievous to us /is that while blasphemy and infidelity daily increase, /the adoration due to You diminishes./ Alas! Now, even more than in the days of the prophet Ezekiel,/ men neglect and profane Your holydays because their hearts are given to idols./ Slaves of avarice and of pleasure, they no longer have time for Your worship, or attraction to Your altars./ The days set apart for Your service are profaned by their worldliness or pleasure./ They have abandoned Your house; /they fly from the preaching of Your Word;/ they despise the Sacraments and graces of the Sanctuary to give themselves to labors forbidden,/ or to amusements still more criminal.
O Lord!/ Grant us the grace to make reparation for this contempt and forgetfulness of You/ by the zeal and fervor of our adoration. / Bless those who make reparation to the Adorable Face of Jesus Christ,/ that by their prayers and sacrifices they may bring back to Your worship and to the observances of the Church /the unfaithful who have strayed from You.
Receive our vows and promises never to transgress Your sacred precepts,/ either in our own persons/ or in those who are under our charge;/ and in every way possible to us to procure the obedience and honor which are due to You.

May the Adorable Name of the Lord be glorified forever! Amen. May the Holy Days of Your Church be sanctified by all men! Amen.

Offering of the Holy Face
By St. John Vianney

Oh, my beautiful Immaculate Mother Mary, Queen of Sorrows, I beg thee, by the inexpressible agony thou didst endure at the foot of the Cross, offer to the Eternal Father, in my stead, the Holy Face of Thy Divine Son, my Jesus, covered with blood, wounds, and other indignities heaped upon Him during His Sacred Passion, and beg of Him to grant (here mention the grace or favor you desire). Amen.

An Aspiration to the Eternal Father to be frequently recited during the day

Eternal Father, we offer to You the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with blood, sweat, dust, and spittle, in reparation for the crimes of communists, blasphemers, and for the profaners of the Holy Name and of the Holy Day. Amen.

OFFERING OF THE HOLY FACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GOD THE FATHER -IN ORDER TO APPEASE HIS JUSTICE AND DRAW DOWN MERCY UPON US.
Prayer

Eternal Father, turn away Your angry gaze from our guilty people whose face has become unsightly in your eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Your Beloved Son, for this is the Face of Him in Whom You are well pleased. We now offer You this Holy Face, covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises in reparation for the crimes of our age in order to appease Your anger, justly provoked against us. Because Your divine Son, Our Redeemer, has taken upon His Head all the sins of His members, that they might be spared, we now beg of You, Eternal Father, to grant us Mercy. Amen.

AN ACT OF REPARATION FOR BLASPHEMIES
AGAINST THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY

“How fair you are, O Virgin Mary, Your face is resplendent with grace.”

Our Lady of Czestochowa

“Our Lady in whose face – more than in any other creature – we can recognize the features of The Incarnate Word.” ~ Pope Benedict XVI

Most glorious Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, turn thine eyes in pity upon us, miserable sinners; we are sore afflicted by the many evils that surround us in this life, but especially do we feel our hearts break within us upon hearing the dreadful insults and blasphemies uttered against thee, O Virgin Immaculate, to which we are so frequently constrained to listen. O how these impious sayings offend the infinite Majesty of God and of His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ! How they provoke His indignation and give us cause to fear the terrible effects of His vengeance! Would that the sacrifice of our lives might avail to put an end to such outrages and blasphemies; were it so, how gladly we should make it, for we desire, O most holy Mother, to love thee and to honor thee with all our hearts, since this is the will of God. And just because we love thee, we will do all that is in our power to make thee honored and loved by all men. In the meantime, do thou, our merciful Mother, the supreme comforter of the afflicted, accept this our act of reparation which we offer thee for ourselves and for all our families, as well as for all who impiously blaspheme thee, not knowing what they say. Do thou obtain for them from Almighty God the grace of conversion, and thus render more manifest and more glorious thy kindness, thy power and thy great mercy. May they join with us in proclaiming thee “Blessed Among Women,” the Immaculate Virgin and most compassionate Mother of God.

Hail Mary (three times)

Padre Todopoderoso y Eterno, puesto que nuestro Divino Salvador se ha complacido en revelar a la Humanidad en tiempos modernos el poder que reside en Su Divino Rostro, acudimos a este tesoro en nuestra gran necesidad. Puesto que nuestro Salvador mismo prometió que al ofrecerte Su Divino Rostro desfigurado en la Pasión, Él nos procurará lo necesario para nuestros hogares y que nada nos será negado, ahora nos presentamos delante de Tu trono.

Padre Eterno, aparta Tu mirada de ira de nuestro pueblo culpable, cuyo rostro se ha vuelto repugnante ante Tus ojos. En vez de ello, mira el Rostro de Tu Hijo amado; porque es el Rostro de Aquel en quien Tú te complaces. Ahora Te ofrecemos Su Divino Rostro cubierto de sangre, sudor, polvo, saliva y vergüenza en reparación de los peores pecados de nuestro tiempo que son el ateísmo, la blasfemia y la profanación de Tus días santos.

De este modo esperamos apaciguar Tu justa ira provocado contra nosotros. El Abogado Todo-Misericordioso abre Sus labios para implorar por nuestra causa. Oh Dios, escucha Sus lamentos, mira Sus lágrimas y, por los méritos de Su Divino Rostro, escuchado cuando intercede por nosotros miserables pecadores.

Envíanos, Oh Dios, trabajadores celosos e iluminados atraves de las vocaciones sacradotales y religiosa, para que sus oraciones, su trabajo y sus sacrificios esparzan las bendiciones de Tu Iglesia y confundan a tus enemigos. Amen.

Oración Para Ofrecer El Rostro de Jesús Santa de Dios El Padre para aplacar su justicia y llamar su misericordia
Padre Eterno, vuelve Tu mirada enojada lejos de nuestro pueblo culpable cuyo rostro se ha vuelto desagradable en sus ojos. Mira en cambio en el rostro de tu Hijo Amado, porque esta es la cara de aquel en el cual Usted está complacido. Ahora le ofrecemos Su Santo Rostro cubierto de sangre, sudor, polvo, saliva y vergüenza, en reparación por los crímenes más graves de nuestro tiempo, que son el ateísmo. La blasfemia y la profanación de sus días santos. Esperamos así apaciguar su ira provocada justamente en contra de nosotros. El Defensor Misericordioso abe la boca para defender nuestra causa; escuchar sus gritos, he aquí sus lágrimas, oh Dios, y por los méritos de Su Santa Faz escuchar a El cuándo intercede por nosotros pecadores miserables pobres.

Acto de Reparación por las blasfemias y violaciones del Domingo

¡Oh, Señor! Infinitamente digno de nuestra adoración y amor, me postro a Tus pies, lleno de dolor por las blasfemias en contra de Tu Santo Nombre y por las ofensas cometidas contra Tu divina adoración y en las observaciones de Tu Iglesia.

¡Oh mi Señor! Estas blasfemias son una profanación de lo mas Santo, es un ataque a Tu infinita majestad y un ultraje contra el Rostro de Tu divino Hijo, un crimen sin excusa, sin otro motivo que la maldad que Te odia.

¡Oh Señor! Infinitamente digno de todo amor, te pedimos perdón por estas blasfemias, quisiéramos prevenirlas sacrificando todo lo que somos y poseemos, al menos en la sinceridad de nuestros corazones, deseamos con todo nuestro poder, combatir este horrible crimen y por todo lo que oímos y conocemos, ofrecerte por los méritos de Rostro de Jesucristo muestra humilde y afligida expiación.

Pro lo más grave para nosotros es que mientras las blasfemias e infidelidad crecen diariamente, la adoración que te debemos a Ti decrece. Ahora más que en los tiempos del profeta Ezequiel, el hombre descuida y profana Tus Santos días porque sus corazones están dados a ídolos. Esclavos de las avaricias y del placer, no tienen tiempo para Adorarte o ser atraídos a Tu altar. Los días separados para Tu servicio son profanados por sus mundanerías o placeres. Han abandonado Tu casa, se distancian de Tu Palabra: desprecian Tus Sacramentos y las gracias de Tu santuario para darse a labores prohibidas o diversiones criminales.

¡Oh Señor! Danos la gracia de reparar el desprecio y el olvido hacia Ti, con el celo y fervor de nuestra adoración. Bendice a aquellos que hacen reparación al Adorable Rostro de Jesucristo, que sus oraciones y sacrificios traigan de vuelta Tu adoración y la observación de la Iglesia de todos los infieles que se han apartado de Ti.

Recibe nuestro voto y promesa de nunca transgredir Tus sagrados preceptos tanto en nuestra persona o en aquellos que están a nuestro cargo; y en toda forma posible procuremos obedecerte y honrarte.

Oración de Novena al Santo Rostro

Oh Señor Jesucristo, al presentarnos ante Tu adorable Rostro para pedirte a Ti las gracias que más necesitamos, Te rogamos, por, sobre todo, nos concedas la disposición interior para nunca dejar de hacer en ningún momento lo que Tu requieres de nosotros con Tus santos mandamientos y divinas inspiraciones. Amen.

O bondadoso Jesús, que has dicho “Pide y recibirás, busca y encontraras, golpea y se abrirá para ti,” concédenos, Oh Senor, esa fe que lo obtiene todo o provéenos sé lo que carecemos; concédenos, a través del puro efecto de Tu caridad y por Tu gloria eterna, las gracias que necesitamos y las que buscamos en Tu infinita misericordia. Amen.

Se misericordioso con nosotros, Oh mi Dios y no rechaces nuestras oraciones, cuando en medio de nuestras aflicciones, rogamos a Tu Santo Nombre y buscamos con amor y confianza Tu adorable Rostro.

Te damos gracias, Oh Señor, por Todos tus beneficios y confiamos en Ti que graves en eterna alabanza. Amen. (por León DuPont, Santo Hombre de Tours)

Oración por los pecadores de Santa Teresa del Nino Jesús y de la Santa Faz

Padre eterno, ya que me has dado por herencia la Faz adorable de tu divino Hijo, yo te la ofrezco, y te pido, a cambio de esta Moneda infinitamente preciosa, que olvides las ingratitudes de las almas que se han consagrado a ti y que perdones a los pobres pecadores.

O Jesús que en vuestra acerba Pasión fuisteis hecho “el oprobio de los hombres y el varón de dolores” yo venero vuestro Divino Rostro, en el que resplandecían la beldad y la dulzura de la divinidad, trocado ahora en la forma de rostro de leproso. Mas a través de esos rasgos desfigurados reconozco vuestro amor infinito, y siento abrazarme en deseos de amaros y haceros amar a todos los hombres. Las lágrimas que corren en abundancia de vuestros ojos son para mi otras perlas preciosas que me complazco en recoger, a fin de comprar con su valor infinito las llamas de los infelices pecadores.

Oh Jesús, cuyo rostro es la única hermosura que arrebata mi corazón. Me resigno a no gozar acá debajo de la dulzura de vuestra mirada, y a no gustar el inexplicable consuelo de vuestros besos; pero os suplico que imprimáis en mi vuestra semejanza divina y me encendáis en vuestro amor de tal modo que en breve me consuma y pueda así llegar cuanto antes a disfrutar en el cielo de la vista de vuestro adorado Rostro. Así sea.

Ofrecimiento de Santa Teresa del Nino Jesús y de la Santa Faz al Padre Eterno

Oh Todopoderoso y Eterno Dios, mira el Rostro de Tu Hijo Jesús. Te lo presentamos a Ti con confianza, para implorar Tu perdón.
