I have given My heart as a sensible object of My great love for man, I give My Face as a sensible object of My sorrow for the sins of man.

Jesus, covered in blood and much sadness, said to Mother Pierina:
"See how much I suffer. I am understood by so few. 

What ingratitude on the part of those who say that 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 honored by a special feast on Shrove Tuesday. The feast will be preceded by a novena, during which the faithful make reparation with Me, uniting themselves with My sorrow."

This year, the feast of the Holy Face falls on February 28, 2017 Shrove Tuesday.  

Will You join me in daily prayer for nine days to atone for our sins? Let us ask Our Lord to  help  us to make a good Lent. We do not know if this will be our last lent and the last opportunity for us to do penance before we cross over to behold his face in the light of eternity.

 Our Lord wanted the novena 9 days before Shrove Tuesday but the novena said any time there is a great need for reparation. Our Lord asked for the nine days before Lent begins but one could also pray the novena anytime during Lent. Maybe nine days before Good Friday. During the novena we will walk with our Lord and compassionate our Lord in his sufferings. “I looked for one to comfort me but I found none.” Psalm 69:20

Hear my voice when I call, LORD;  be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper.
Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.  Psalm 27
 Psalm 27...
One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.

5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
 6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his
sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.

Dictated by Our Lord to Sister Mary of St. Peter

 …One may also make a NOVENA OF REPARATION TO OBTAIN A FAVOR by saying the “Golden Arrow” prayer and “The Litany of the Holy Face” below  on nine consecutive days, preferably before the Blessed Sacrament or the picture of the Holy Face, and by going to Confession and Holy Communion!   Click For History of the  Devotion to the Holy Face

May the most holy 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 Mary of St. Peter was given a vision in which she saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus delightfully wounded by this “Golden Arrow”, as torrents of graces streamed from It for the conversion of sinners.


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 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.

Veronica's veil, by Claude Mellan (c. 1649).

O adorable Face which was adored, with profound respect, by Mary and Joseph when they saw Thee for the first time, have mercy on us.
O adorable Face which ravished with joy, in the stable of Bethlehem, the Angels, the shepherds and the magi, have mercy…
O adorable Face which transpierced with a dart of love in the Temple, the saintly old man Simeon and the prophetess Anna, have mercy…
O adorable Face which filled with admiration the Doctors of the Law when Thou appeared in the Temple at the age of twelve years, have mercy…
O adorable Face which possesses beauty always ancient and always new, have mercy…
O adorable Face which is the masterpiece of the Holy Ghost, in which the Eternal Father is well pleased, have mercy…
O adorable Face which is the ineffable mirror of the divine perfections, have mercy…
Adorable Face of Jesus which was so mercifully bowed down on the Cross, on the day of Thy Passion, for the salvation of the world! Once more today in pity bend down towards us poor sinners. Cast upon us a glance of compassion and give us Thy peace.   

Reliquary (volto santo di manoppello)

O adorable Face which became brilliant like the sun and radiant with glory, on the Mountain of Thabor, have mercy…
O adorable Face which wept and was troubled at the tomb of Lazarus, have mercy…
O adorable Face which was rendered sad at the sight of Jerusalem, and shed tears on that ungrateful city, have mercy…
O adorable Face which was bowed down to the ground in the Garden of Olives, and covered with confusion for our sins, have mercy…
O adorable Face which was covered with the sweat of blood, have mercy…
O adorable Face which was struck by a vile servant, covered with a veil of shame, and profaned by the sacrilegious hands of Thine enemies, have mercy…
O adorable Face which by Its divine glance, wounded the heart of St. Peter with a dart of sorrow and love, have mercy…

Be merciful to us, O my God! Do not reject our prayers, when in the midst of our afflictions, we call upon Thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Thine adorable Face.

     O adorable Face which was washed and anointed by Mary and the holy women and covered with a shroud, have mercy
O adorable Face which was all resplendent with glory and beauty on the day of the Resurrection, have mercy…
O adorable Face which is hidden in the Eucharist, have mercy…
O adorable Face which will appear at the end of time in the clouds with great power and great majesty, have mercy…
O adorable Face which will make sinners tremble, have mercy…
O adorable Face which will fill the just with joy for all eternity,  have mercy…
O adorable Face which merits all our reverence, our homage and our adoration, have mercy…
O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved!
O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved!
O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved!
Almighty and Eternal Father, since it has pleased Our Divine Savior to reveal to mankind in modern times the power residing in His Holy Face, we now avail ourselves of this Treasure in our great need. Since Our Savior Himself promised that by offering to Thee His Holy Face disfigured in the Passion we can procure the settlement of all the affairs of our household, and that nothing will be refused to us, we now come before Thy throne.

Eternal Father, turn away Thine angry gaze from our guilty people whose face has become unsightly in Thine eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Thy Beloved Son; for this is the Face of Him in whom Thou art well pleased. We now offer Thee His Holy Face covered with blood, sweat, dust, spittle and shame, in reparation for the worst crimes of our age, which are atheism, blasphemy, and the desecration of Thy holy days. We thus hope to appease Thine anger justly provoked against us. The All-Merciful Advocate opens His mouth to plead our cause; listen to His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through the merits of His Holy Face hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor miserable sinners.

The Holy Face of Manoppello

I have given My heart as a sensible object of My great love for man, I give My Face as a sensible object of My sorrow for the sins of man. 

Let us compassionate our Lord in prayer!
