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. (Start novena)
"All those who, attracted by My love, and venerating My countenance, shall
receive, by virtue of My humanity, a brilliant and vivid impression of My
divinity. This splendor shall enlighten the depths of their souls, so that in
eternal glory the celestial court shall marvel at the marked likeness of their
features with My divine countenance." (Our Lord Jesus Christ to St. Gertrude)
Psalm 51, 16-17
O rescue me, God my helper, and my tongue shall ring out Your goodness. O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare Your praise.
Most merciful Face of Jesus, who in this vale of tears was so moved by our
misfortunes to call Yourself the healer of the sick, and the good Shepherd of
the souls gone astray, allow not satan to draw us away from You, but keep us
always under Your loving protection, together with all souls who endeavor to
console You. 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.
Prayer to Saint Peter
O glorious Saint Peter, who in return for thy lively and generous faith, thy
profound and sincere humility and thy burning love, was honored by Jesus Christ
with singular privileges, and in particular, with the leadership of the other
apostles and the primacy of the whole church, of which thou was made the
foundation stone, do thou obtain for us the grace of a lively faith, that shall
not fear to profess itself openly in its entirety and in all of its
manifestations, even to the shedding of blood, if occasion should demand it, and
to the sacrifice of life itself in preference to surrender. Obtain for us
likewise a sincere loyalty to our Holy Mother the Church. Grant that we may ever
remain most closely and sincerely united to the Holy Father, who is the heir of
thy faith and of thy authority, the one true visible head of the Catholic
Church. Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in all humility and meekness, the
Church’s teaching and counsels and may be obedient to all her precepts, in order
to be able here on earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undisturbed, and to
attain one day in Heaven to everlasting happiness. Amen.
Pray one (1) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary’s, (1) Glory Be.
O Bleeding Face, O Face Divine, be every adoration Thine. (Three times)
