Catholic Prayer: Litany of the Holy Face of Jesus

Description:

Prayer:

I salute Thee, I adore Thee and I love Thee, O adorable Face of Jesus, my Beloved, noble Seal of the Divinity! Outraged anew by blasphemers. I offer Thee, through the heart of Thy blessed Mother, the worship of all the Angels and Saints, most humbly beseeching Thee to repair and renew in me and in all men Thy Image disfigured by sin.

O adorable Face which was adored, with profound respect, by Mary and Joseph when they saw Thee for the first time, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which did ravish with joy, in the stable of Bethlehem, the Angels, the shepherds and the magi, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which did transpierce with a dart of love in the Temple, the saintly old man Simeon and the prophetess Anna, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which filled with admiration the Doctors of the law when Thou didst appear in the Temple at the age of twelve years, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which possesses beauty always ancient and always new, have mercy... O adorable Face which is the masterpiece of the Holy Ghost, in which the Eternal Father is well pleased, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which is the ineffable mirror of the divine perfection, have mercy on us.

Adorable Face of Jesus which was so mercifully bowed down on the Cross, on the day of Thy Passion, for the salvation of the world! Once more today in pity bend down towards us poor sinners. Cast upon us a glance of compassion and give us Thy peace.

O adorable Face which became brilliant like the sun and radiant with glory, on the Mountain of Tabor, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which wept and was troubled at the tomb of Lazarus, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which was rendered sad at the sight of Jerusalem, and shed tears on that ungrateful city, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which was bowed down to the ground in the Garden of Olives, and covered with confusion for our sins, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which was covered with the sweat of blood, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which was struck by a vile servant, covered with a veil of shame, and profaned by the sacrilegious hands of Thy enemies, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which by Its divine glance, wounded the heart of St. Peter with a dart of sorrow and love, have mercy on us.

Be merciful to us, O my God! Do not reject our prayers, when in the midst of our afflictions, we call upon Thy Holy Name and seek with love and confidence Thy adorable Face.

O adorable Face which was washed and anointed by Mary and the holy women and covered with a shroud, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which was all resplendent with glory and beauty on the day of the Resurrection, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which is hidden in the Eucharist, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which will appear at the end of time in the clouds with great power and great majesty, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which will make sinners tremble, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which will fill the just with joy for all eternity, have mercy on us. O adorable Face which merits all our reverence, our homage and our adoration, have mercy on us.

O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved! O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved! O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved!
