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.
"You are just when you pass sentence on me,
blameless when you give judgment.
You know I was born guilty,
a sinner from the moment of conception."
[Ps. 51: 6b-7]
Prayer of Pope Pius IX
Cast upon us a look of mercy;
turn your Face towards each of us
as You did to Veronica;
not that we may see it with our bodily eyes,
for this we do not deserve,
but turn it towards our hearts,
so that, remembering You,
we may ever draw from this fountain of strength
the vigor necessary to sustain the combats of life.
Mary, Our Mother,
and 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 of Saint Francis
All Highest, Glorious God,
cast Your light into the darkness of our hearts,
give us true faith, firm hope,
perfect charity, and profound humility,
so that with wisdom,
courage and perception,
O Lord, we may do what is truly Your Holy Will.
To the Angels and Saints
We salute you,
through the Holy Face
and Sacred Heart of Jesus,
O all you Holy Angels and Saints of God.
We rejoice in your glory,
and we give thanks to our Lord
for all the benefits which He has showered upon you.
We praise Him and glorify Him,
and offer you for an increase of your joy and honor,
the Most Holy Face and Gentle Heart of Jesus.
Pray that we may be formed according to the Heart of God.
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
