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 Four



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.



"Indeed you love truth in the heart; then in the secret of my heart teach me Wisdom. O purify me, then I shall be clean; O wash me, I shall be whiter than snow."
[Ps. 51: 8-9]



O Lord Jesus, who has said, learn of Me for I am meek and gentle of heart, and who did manifest upon Thy Holy Face the sentiments of Thy Divine Heart, grant that we may love to come frequently and meditate upon Thy Divine Features.

May we may read there Thy gentleness and Thy humility, and learn how to form our hearts in the practice of these two virtues which Thou desires to see shine in Thy servants.

Mary our Mother and Saint Joseph help 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 the Dolors of the Blessed Virgin


O Most Holy and afflicted Virgin, Queen of Martyrs!

Thou who stood beneath the cross, witnessing the agony of your Dying Son, look down with a mother's tenderness and have pity on us as we kneel before you to venerate your Dolors, and place our requests, with filial confidence, in the sanctuary of your wounded heart.

Present them on our behalf to Jesus, through the merits of His Most Sacred Passion and Death, together with your sufferings at the foot of the cross, and through the united efficacy of both, obtain the favor which we humbly ask.

To whom shall we go in our wants and miseries if not to you. O Mother of Mercy,

Having so deeply drunk of the chalice of your Son, graciously alleviate the sufferings of those who still sigh in this land of exile. Amen.




Prayer to the Souls in Purgatory


All Highest, Glorious God, cast Your light into the darkness of our hearts.

Give us true faith, My Jesus, by the sorrows You suffered in Your agony in the garden, in Your scourging and crowning with thorns, in the way to Calvary, in Your crucifixion and death, have mercy on the souls in Purgatory, and especially on those who are most forsaken.

Deliver them from the dire torments they endure. Call them and admit them to Your Most Sweet Embrace in Paradise. Amen.



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.
