Ave Maria MeditationsPrayer to offer the Holy Face of Jesus to God the Father:
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 the Father 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 Thy angry image from our guilty people whose face has become unsightly in Thy eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Thy beloved Son, for this is the Face of Him in Whom Thou art well pleased. We are now offering 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 the holy days with the hope to appease Thy anger justly provoked against us. Thine 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 harken to Him when He intercedes for us for miserable sinners. Amen.
“Every time My Face is contemplated, I will pour out My love into the hearts of those persons, and by means of My Holy Face the salvation of many will be obtained.”
