Daily 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. (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, 18-21
For in sacrifice You take no delight, burnt offering from me You would refuse,
my sacrifice a contrite spirit. A humbled, contrite heart You will not spurn. In
Your goodness, show favor to Zion; rebuild the walls of Jerusalem Then You will
be pleased with lawful sacrifice, holocausts offered on Your altar,
Sacred Face of our Lord and our God, what words can we do to express our
gratitude? How can we speak of our joy? That You have deigned to hear us, that
You have chosen to answer us in our hour of need. We say this because we know that our prayers will be granted. We know that You, in Your loving kindness, listened to our pleading hearts, and will give, out of Your fullness, the answer to our problems. Mary, our Mother, thank you for your intercession on our
behalf. Saint Joseph, thank you for your prayers.
Through the merits of Your precious Blood and Your Holy Face, O Jesus, grant us our petition, Pardon and Mercy.
Prayer to the Holy Trinity
Most Holy Trinity, Godhead indivisible, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, our first
beginning and our last end. Since You have made us after Your own image and
likeness, grant that all the thoughts of our minds, all the words of our
tongues, all the affections of our hearts and all our actions may be always
conformed to Your most Holy Will, so that after having seen You here on earth in
appearances and in a dark manner by the means of faith, we may come at last to
contemplate You face to face, in the perfect possession of You forever in
