THE HOLY FACE OF JESUS
O LORD, SHOW US THY FACE, AND WE SHALL BE SAVED!
“By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.”
“THE GOLDEN ARROW”
An Act of Praise and Reparation
Dictated by Our Lord to Sister Mary of Saint Peter
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible and ineffable Name of God be forever praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified, in Heaven, on earth and under the earth, by all the creatures of God, and by the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand in most need, we beseech Thee above all to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what Thou requirest of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.
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.
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; hearken to His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through His infinite merits hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor miserable sinners.
Adorable Face of my Jesus, my only love, my light and my life, grant that I may know, love and serve Thee alone, that I may live with Thee, of Thee, by Thee and for Thee.
Eternal Father, I offer Thee the adorable Face of Thy beloved Son for the honor and glory of Thy Name, for the conversion of sinners and for the salvation of the dying.
O Divine Jesus, through Thy Face and Name, save us. Our hope is in the virtue of Thy Holy Name!
O Good Jesus, Who has said, "Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you." Grant us, Dear Lord, that faith which obtains all or supply in us that which is deficient; grant us, by the pure effect of Thy charity and for Thy eternal glory, the graces which we need and for which we look to Thy infinite mercy. +Amen
