TO THE HOLY FACE

O Savior Jesus, at the sight of Thy most holy face disfigured by suffering, at the sight of Thy Sacred Heart so full of love, I cry out with Saint Augustine: “Lord Jesus, imprint on my heart Thy sacred wounds, so that I may read therein sorrow and love: sorrow, to endure every sorrow for Thee; love, to despise every love for Thee.”

O adorable face of my Jesus, so mercifully bowed down upon the tree of the cross on the day of Thy passion, for the salvation of men, now again, incline in Thy pity towards us poor sinners; cast upon us a look of compassion, and receive us with a kiss of peace. Amen.
