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.
"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]
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.
Mary, our Mother,
intercede for us.
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.
[Prayer of St. Louis de Montfort]
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.
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.
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
