The 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
honoured! Whoever gazes upon me already consoles me.

(Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sister Pierina)

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 your 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. (Start novena)

Novena in honour of
The Most Holy Face of Jesus

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 splendour 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)

FIRST DAY

(Console Holy Face and recite Daily Preparatory Prayer)
Psalm 51,3-4.
Have mercy on me, O God in your goodness, in your great tenderness wipe away my faults: wash me clean of my guilt, purify me from my sin.

O most Holy Face of Jesus, look with tenderness on us who are sinners. You are a merciful God, full of love and
compassion. Keep us pure of heart, so that we may see Thee always. Mary, our Mother, intercede for us; Saint Joseph.
pray for us. Through the merits of your precious blood and your Holy Face, O Jesus, grant us our petition……………… Pardon
and mercy.

Prayer to Our Almighty Father
Almighty Father, come into our hearts, and so fill us with your love that forsaking all evil desires, we may embrace
you, our only good. Show us, O Lord our God, what you are to us. Say to our souls, I am your salvation, speak so
that we may hear. Our hearts are before you; open our ears; let us hasten after your voice. Hide not your Face from us,
we beseech you, O Lord. Open our hearts so that you may enter in. Repair the ruined mansions, that you may dwell
therein. Hear us, O Heavenly Father, for the sake of your only Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

(St. Augustine)

Pater Noster, once.
Ave Maria, thrice
Gloria Patri, once.

O Bleeding Face, O Face Divine, be every adoration Thine. Thrice
