"O My Jesus, cast upon us a look of mercy; turn Thy Face towards each of us as Thou did to Veronica; not that we may see it with our bodily eyes, for this we do not deserve; but turn it towards our hearts, so that remembering Thee we may ever draw from this fountain the strength the vigor necessary to sustain the combats of life. Amen."


Aspiration to the Holy Face

To pray to the Holy Face for the dying and agonizing is a great assistance to them, this was revealed to Our Lord to Sr. Saint Pierre. How precious, then, is devotion to the sorrowful, Holy Face of Our Lord Jesus Christ, during sickness, and at the hour of death! It will win our eternal joy and recompense.

"Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Adorable Face of Thy Beloved Son for the honor and glory of Thy Holy Name, for the conversion of sinners and the salvation of dying souls."

-- Sister Saint-Pierre
