Nine Hour Novena
to the
Most Holy Face of Jesus









   The Most Holy Face of Jesus     





"I firmly wish that my face reflecting the intimate pains of my soul, the suffering and love of my heart, be more honored! Whoever gazes upon me already consoles me."

(Our Lord Jesus Christ to Blessed Maria Pierina de Micheli)



Novena to the Most Holy Face of Jesus


Day Seven



Preparatory Prayer


O Most Holy and Blessed Trinity, through the intercession of Holy Mary, whose soul was pierced through by a sword of sorrow at the sight of the Passion of her Divine Son, we ask Your help in making a perfect Novena of Reparation with Jesus, united with all His sorrows, love, and total abandonment.

We now implore all the Angels and Saints to intercede for us as we pray this Holy Novena to the Most Holy Face of Jesus and for the glory of the Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.



"Give me again the joy of your help, with a spirit of fervor sustain me, that I may teach transgressors your ways and sinners may return to you."
[Ps. 51: 14-15]



Lord Jesus! After contemplating Thy features, disfigured by grief, after meditating upon Thy passion with compunction and love, how can our hearts fail to be inflamed with a holy hatred of sin, which even now outrages Thy Adorable Face!

Lord, suffer us not to be content with mere compassion, but give us grace so closely to follow Thee in this Calvary, so that the approbrium destined for Thee may fall on us,

O Jesus, that thus we may have a share, small though it may be, in expiation of sin. Amen.

Mary, our Mother, intercede for us.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Through the merits of Your Precious Blood and Your Holy Face, O Jesus, grant us our petition, pardon and mercy... (State your intention here).



Prayer in Honour of Mary


Hail Mary, beloved daughter of the Eternal Father!

Hail Mary, admirable Mother of the Son!

Hail Mary, faithful spouse of the Holy Spirit!

Hail Mary, my Mother, my loving Mistress, my powerful Sovereign.

Hail, my joy, my glory, my heart and my soul.

Thou art all mine by mercy, and I am thine by justice.

O Virgin blessed above all things, may thy soul be in me to magnify the Lord; may thy spirit be in me to rejoice in God.

Place thyself, O faithful Virgin, as a seal upon my heart, that in thee and through thee I may be found faithful to God.

O Mother of mercy, grant me the grace to obtain the true wisdom of God; and for that end receive me among those thou love and teach, whom thou lead, nourish and protect as thy children.

May I despise all earthly consolation and cling to heavenly things, until through the Holy Spirit, thy faithful spouse, and through thee, His faithful spouse, Jesus Christ, thy Son, be formed within me for the glory of the Father. Amen. [Prayer of St. Louis de Montfort]



Closing Prayers


Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.



Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. (3 times)



Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and shall be forever. Amen.



O Bleeding Face,
O Face Divine,
be every adoration
Thine.

(3 times)





Promises of our Lord Jesus Christ
to those
Devoted to His Holy Face



  1. I will grant them contrition so perfect that their very sins shall be changed, in My Sight, into jewels of precious gold.

  2. None of these persons shall ever be separated from Me.

  3. In offering My Face to My Father, they will appease His anger, and they will purchase, as with celestial coin, pardon for poor sinners.

  4. I will open My mouth to plead with My Father to grant all the petitions that they will present to Me.

  5. I will illuminate them with My Light. I will consume them with My Love, and I will render them fruitful of good works.

  6. They will, as the pious Veronica, wipe My Adorable Face outraged by sin, and I will imprint My Divine Features in these souls.

  7. At their death, I will renew in them the image of God effaced by sin.

  8. By resemblance to My Face, they will shine more than many others in eternal life and the brilliancy of My Face will fill them with joy.
