Catholic Devotions With Promises Of Salvation – Holy Face Devotion 

Holy Face Devotion

On November 24, 1843, Our Lord spoke the following words to the French Carmelite, Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre:

“The earth is covered with crimes. The violation of the first three Commandments of God has irritated My Father. The Holy Name of God blasphemed, and the Holy Day of the Lord profaned, fills up the measure in iniquities. These sins have risen unto the Throne of God and provoked His wrath which will soon burst forth if His justice be not appeased. At no time have these crimes reached such a pitch.” 

Our Lord appeared several times to Sister Marie to ask for reparation to be done to His Holy Face. These revelations enjoy the full approval of the Catholic Church. Heaven has told us through Sister Marie that the Holy Face of Jesus is a symbol of the Catholic Religion. Is this not a veiled prophecy for the Church of our day? The crisis of Faith that has stricken the Church since the 1960’s is one that has corrupted and disfigured the face of Catholicism.

1. The Golden Arrow Prayer:- 

An act of Praise and Reparation dictated by Our Lord to Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre: 

“May the Most Holy, Most Sacred, Most Adorable, Most 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 Marie was given a vision in which she saw the Sacred Heart of Jesus delightfully wounded by the “Golden Arrow” as torrents of graces streamed from It for the conversion of sinners.

2. Prayer to reproduce the Image of God in Our Souls: 

“I salute thee, I adore Thee and I love Thee, adorable face of my beloved Jesus, as the noble stamp of the Divinity! Completely surrendering my soul to Thee, I most humbly beg Thee to stamp this seal upon us all, so that the image of God may once more be reproduced by its imprint in our souls. Amen”

3. Holy Face aspiration to be recited frequently during the day:

“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. Eternal Father, I offer Thee the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with Blood, Sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crimes of communists, blasphemers and by the profaners of His Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday”.

4. Our Lord told Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre on March 16, 1844: 

“Oh if you only knew what great merit you acquire by saying even once, ‘Admirable is the Name of God,’in the spirit of reparation of blasphemy.” (say often).

5. To appease God’s justice and Draw down mercy upon us:

“Eternal Father, turn away Thy angry gaze from all guilty people whose faces have become unsightly in Thy eyes. Look instead upon the face of Thy beloved Son, for this is the Face of Him in whom Thou are well pleased. We now offer Thee this Holy Face, covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises, in reparation for the crimes of our age, in order to appease Thy anger, justly provoked against us. Because Thy Divine Son, our Redeemer, has taken upon His head all the sins of His people that they might be spared, we now beg of Thee, Eternal Father to grant us mercy. Amen”

6. “O Lord Jesus Christ, in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand most in need, we beseech Thee, above all, to grant us that interior disposition of never refusing at any time to do what Thou requires of us by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations. Eternal Father, we offer Thee the adorable Face of Thy well-beloved Son, for the honor and glory of Thy Holy Name and for the salvation of our country. Eternal Father, I ask of Thee as many souls as was the number of the drops of Blood as Thy Divine Son shed in His Passion.” (She was given a vision of Hell and the multitude of souls falling in, and was invited to pray for poor sinners. Dec. 21, 1846).

7. “Eternal Father, I offer Thee Our Savior, Jesus Christ for the expiation of my sins and for the needs of the Holy Church. Amen.”

Promises of Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sr. Marie in favor of those who honor and adore His Holy Face.

Our Lord said to StGertrude concerning all those who would honor the Holy Face:

“They shall receive in themselves, by the impression if My humanity, a bright irradiation of My divinity, and shall be so illuminated by it in their inmost souls that, by their likeness to My Face, they shall shine in eternal life with a brightness surpassing that of many others”

Our Lord promised to St. Mechtilde:

“Those who embrace this work of reparation with true piety will not be lost, for I Myself will defend them before My Father and I will give them the Kingdom of Heaven. I will grant them the grace of final perseverance”

Our Lord promised to Sr. Mary of St. Peter: 

“To imprint His Divine likeness upon the souls of those who honor the features of His face.” 

“By my Holy Face you shall work wonders! Through this holy Face you will obtain the conversion of many sinners. Nothing that you ask in virtue of the Holy Face will be refused to you. Oh if you only knew how pleasing is the sight of My face to My father, Just as in an earthly kingdom, money which is stamped with the picture of the sovereign or ruling executive of the country procures whatever one desires to purchase, so, likewise, in the kingdom of heaven, you shall obtain all that you desire by offering the coin of My precious humanity, which is My adorable face, Our Lord assured me that all persons who would apply themselves to this Work of Reparation to His Holy Face would perform the same service on His behalf as that which the saintly Veronica performed”.

“I will give you My adorable Face and each time that you present it to My Father, My mouth will be open to plead your cause. In proportion to the care you take in making reparation to My face disfigured by blasphemies, I will take care of yours, disfigured by sin. I will imprint My image on it and render it as beautiful as when it was washed in the waters of Baptism”.

Then Our Lord promised me that all who defended His cause in the Work of Reparation, whether by their words, their prayers or by their writing, He would Himself defend before His eternal Father, and that He would give them His Kingdom. Then it seemed to me that Our Lord urged me to extend this promise in His name to His priests who through a crusade of preaching would advance the cause of Reparation. 

As for His spouses who would strive to honor and wipe His Holy Face in a spirit of atoning for blasphemies, Our Lord promised that at their death He would purify the face of their souls by effacing the stains of sin, and that He would restore to them their original beauty.

I believe that God has great plans of showing mercy to souls by revealing to us the power of His adorable Countenance. In this priceless gift we possess an infallible means of appeasing the anger of the Eternal Father, irritated by blasphemers, because whenever we beg Him to cast a look upon the Face of His Divine Son, the rod falls from His hands.
