Perpetual Novena to the Holy Face

 

ACT OF CONTRITION

My Lord, Jesus Christ, true God and true man, in whom I believe, in whom I hope and Whom I love above all things, I am deeply sorry for having offended thee, because of Your infinite goodness. I promise never more to offended You, with the help of Your Divine Grace, and through the powerful intercession of the Blessed Mother, the Holy Virgin Mary, whom I would like to honor all the days of my life, but most particularly during this novena which I dedicate to the glory of her most holy name. Amen.

 

PRAYER

Look down upon us, O Sweetest and Most Merciful Jesus, Our Lord and Our Redeemer, humbly prostrate before Your Sacred Image. We  give thanks to You because of the beautiful graces You have bestowed upon us. We glorify You through this sacred representation of your Holy Face which You have imprinted on the linen of that kind woman Veronica on your Way to Calvaryto be a sacrifice for our sins. O Jesus, Our Holy Redeemer, grant that we may not turn our backs on You, and give us the grace to see You, face to face in heaven. Who together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen

 

PRAYER TO THE HOLY FACE

O Jesus, in your bitter Passion You became a man of sorrows in your disfigured face I see your infinite love I am consumed with the desire to love, And make you loved by all. I venerate your Holy Face because it is the human expression of the face of the Father the tears on your eyes are like pearls which I desire to offer to God in expiation of my sin and the spiritual salvation of sinner. O Jesus, your adorable Face vanishes my heart, Gaze into my eyes and touch my heart and set me on fire with your love so that my desire will be to contemplate your glorious Face in heaven. Amen.
