True Devotion
To The Holy Face Of Jesus


O how great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord,
which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee!
Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee,
in the sight of the sons of men.
Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy face,
from the disturbance of men.
Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle
from the contradiction of tongues.

Psalm 30:20,21

Brief Story Behind The Image:
This extaordinary image was reported to have mysteriously appeared in a roll of film belonging to a nun who had been visiting the holy places of Europe. She never remembered seeing or photographing this image anywhere and did not know how it got there.  Miraculous?  No one knows.  One thing only is certain - the draw of those amazing eyes!

Promises of Jesus Made to Sr. Mary of St. Peter

In Favor of Those Who Honor
His Holy Face

I thirst.                                                                (John 19:28)

1.  "Our lord promised me that He would imprint His Divine likeness upon the souls of those who honor the features of His Face."

2.  "By My Holy Face you will work wonders!"

3.  "By My Holy Face you will obtain the conversion of many sinners." 

4.  "Nothing that you ask in virtue of the Holy Face will be refused you.  Oh, if only you knew how pleasing is the sight of My Face to My Father."

5.  "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."

6.  "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 in His behalf as that which the saintly Veronica had performed."

7.  "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."

8.  "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."

9.  "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."

"By offering My Face to My Eternal Father
nothing will be refused, 
and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained."

(Our Lord to Sr. Mary of St. Peter)

'Behold, O God, our Protector, 
and look upon the Face of Thy Christ!'

 "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."

~ Sr. Mary of St. Peter

The Noble Stamp of the Divinity

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

On  November 5,1845, Our Lord revealed to Sr. Mary of St. Peter, that the image of His Holy Face is like a stamp that imprints the Image of God upon our souls.

The Golden Arrow
An Act of Praise and Reparation for Blasphemy
Dictated by Our Lord to Sr. Marie of St. Peter

      "My name is everwhere blasphemed - even children blaspheme it.  This is a frightful sin.  More than all others, it grievously wounds My divine heart.  Through blasphemy, the sinner curses me to My Face, attacks me openly, and pronounces his own condemnation and judgement. Blasphemy is a poisoned arrow." 

'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 Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ, 
in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

"Oh, if you only knew what great merit you aquire 
by saying even once, 

'Admirable is the Name of God,'

in the spirit of reparation for blasphemy!"

(Our Lord to Sr. Mary of St. Peter)

Words of Our Lord Regarding 
the Golden Arrow

(This prayer was dictated by Our Lord to Sr. Mary of St. Peter, O.C.D., Discalced Carmelite nun of Tours France). (1816-1848). 

  Opening His Heart to her, our Saviour complained of blasphemy, saying that this sin wounds His Divine Heart more grievously than all other sins, since it is like a "poisoned arrow."  He also told her that the two sins which offend Him the most grievously are blasphemy and the profanation of Sunday.

    "This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully, He said,
and heal the wounds inflicted by blasphemy." 

  Sr. Mary of St. Peter saw, "streaming from the Sacred Heart of Jesus, delightfully wounded by this 'Golden Arrow,' torrents of graces for the conversion of sinners."



Prayer of St. Therese of Lisieux
St. Therese's name in Religion was 'Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face'

  "Jesus, Who in Thy bitter Passion didst become 
'the reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,' 
I venerate Thy Holy Face on which shone
the beauty and gentleness of Divinity. 
In those disfigured features I recognize Thine Infinite Love, 
and I long to love Thee and to make Thee loved....."

'May I behold Thy Glorious Face in Heaven!'

Saint Athanasius relates that the devils on being asked what verse in the Scriptures they feared the most, replied: 'That with which the 67th Psalm commences:

Let God arise, and let His Enemies be scattered, 
And let them that hate Him flee from before 
His face!'

They added that this verse always compelled them to take flight.

(Douay Rheims)

Sacred Scripture
(Douay Rheims Version)

(Numbers 22:27)
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Say to Aaron and his sons:
Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, and you shall say to them:

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee.
The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee.
The Lord turn his countenance to thee, and give thee peace.

And they shall invoke my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.

(Psalm 102:2,3)

O LORD, hear my prayer, and let my cry come to you.
Hide not your face from me in the day of my distress.

This is the generation of them that seek him, of them that seek the Face
of the God of Isreal" 

Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy mercy.

(Daniel 3:41- 43)
"And now we follow thee with all our heart, and we fear thee, and seek thy face. Put us not to confusion, but deal with us according to thy meekness, and according to the multitude of thy mercies.  And deliver us according to they wonderful works, and give glory to thy name, O LORD:"

(Psalm 31:17)

"Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your kindness.

(Psalm 30:20,21)
"O how great is the multitude of thy sweetness, O Lord, which thou hast hidden for them that fear thee! Which thou hast wrought for them that hope in thee, in the sight of the sons of men. Thou shalt hide them in the secret of they face, from the disturbance of men. Thou shalt protect them in thy tabernacle from the contradiction of tongues."

 Revelations to the Saints Regarding 
The Holy Face of Jesus

     "Offer My Face to My Father ~ it is the only means whereby to appease Him  ~ appease divine justice.  If you only knew how powerful is its virtue ~ and the reason is that I have taken upon My own Head all the sins of humanity in order that my members may be spared."

(Our Lord to Sr. Mary Peter)

"Let the soul who is desirous of advancing in perfection hasten to My Sacred Heart ~ but he who yearns to make even greater progress and to mount still higher on the wings of desire, must rise with the swiftness of an eagle and hover about my Sacred Face, supported like a seraph, on the wings of overpowering love."

(Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great)

"They shall receive in themselves, by the impression of 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."

(Promise of Our Lord to St. Gertrude)

 "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."

(Promise to St. Mechtilde)
