The Holy Face # 1

O Jesus, who in Thy bitter Passion

didst become "the most abject of men,

a man of sorrows",

I venerate Thy Sacred Face

whereon there once did shine

the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead;

but now it has become for me

as if it were the face of a leper!

Nevertheless, under those disfigured features,

I recognize Thy infinite Love

and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee

and make Thee loved by all men.

The tears which well up abundantly

in Thy sacred eyes appear to me

as so many precious pearls

that I love to gather up,

in order to purchase the souls of poor sinners

by means of their infinite value.

O Jesus, whose adorable Face ravishes my heart,

I implore Thee to fix deep within me

Thy Divine image and to set me

on fire with Thy Love,

that I may be found worthy

to come to the contemplation

of Thy glorious Face in Heaven.

Amen.
