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, 5-6a.
My offenses truly I know them; My sin is always before me. Against You, You
alone, have I sinned; What is evil in Your sight I have done.
Most Holy Face of Jesus, we are truly sorry that we have hurt You so much by
constantly doing what is wrong; and for all the good works we have failed to do.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Saint Joseph, intercede for us, help us to console the
Most Holy Face of Jesus. Pray that we may share in the tremendous love Thou hast for one another, and for the most Holy and Blessed Trinity. Amen.
Through the merits of Your precious blood and Your Holy Face, O Jesus, grant us
our petition, Pardon and Mercy.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, Sanctifier, all powerful God of love, Thou who didst fill the
Virgin Mary with grace, Thou who didst wonderfully transform the hearts of the
apostles, Thou who didst endow all Thy martyrs with a miraculous heroism, come
and sanctify us, illumine our minds, strengthen our wills, purify our
consciences, rectify our judgments, set our hearts on fire and preserve us from
the misfortune of resisting Thine inspirations. We consecrate to Thee our
understanding, our heart and our will, our whole being for time and for
eternity. May our understanding be always submissive to Thy heavenly
inspirations and to the teachings of Thy Holy Catholic Church, of which Thou art
the infallible guide; may our heart be ever inflamed with love of God and
neighbor; may our will be ever conformed to the divine will, and may our whole
life be a faithful imitation of the life and virtues of our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ, to whom with the Father and Thee be honor and glory forever. Amen
