O my Jesus!
Cast upon us a look of mercy.
Turn Thy Face towards each of us
as Thou didst 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 Thee,
we may ever draw from this
fountain of strength the vigor necessary
to sustain the combats of life.
(Composed by Pope Blessed Pius IX)
Devotion to the Holy Face was promoted by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself when on His Sorrowful Road to the Mount of Crucifixion, He imprinted His Sacred Countenance on Veronica’s Veil in response to her loving attention in wiping the sweat and blood from His Face.
In 1843 in Tours, France, Our Lord revealed to a pious Carmelite Nun, Sr. Mary of St. Peter, that He seeks for Veronicas to wipe and venerate His Divine Face which has but few adorers. He gave her to understand that all who take part in this work of reparation would be imitating Veronica “who, with My Mother, will teach you how to honor It. By means of My Holy Face, you will work wonders.”
