“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 all men.”
—Prayer of Pope Bl. Pius IX
The devotion to the Holy Face is one of the most powerful devotions in the world.
Many miracles are associated with the Holy Face, including the shroud of Turin and the Veil of Veronica—but so few Catholics actually take advantage of this powerful devotion.
The devotion to the passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ and particularly to His Holy Face is one of the oldest in Catholic Tradition. This devotion was practiced by great saints like St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Gertrude the Great, and St. Bonaventure.
This booklet will be the perfect tool to help you understand the important aspects and practices of devoting oneself to the Holy Face. With the clear background information, everything you need to know to begin the devotion, and the many prayers included for your benefit, this booklet will become a treasured part of your prayer life.
Beginning in 1844, Our Lord appeared to Sr. Mary of St. Peter and expressed His desire that world should know and practice this devotion in reparation for man's blasphemy against God. Through the efforts of Sr. Mary of St. Peter, Ven. Leo DuPont, and countless others, this devotion has become better known and more frequently practiced. However, many still fail to make reparation to the Holy Face and don’t obtain the many graces that come from this spiritual weapon.
With this booklet in hand, enter into the spiritual battlefield to which God calls us, making reparations and fighting blasphemy for the Kingdom of Heaven.
