PRAYER FOR ALL THE DAYS

My Lord, My God and My Jesus; I call You in this manner, that must please You the most, as it must have been the way that only Your Most Holy Virgin Mother called You, from when the Angel announced to Her the mystery of Your incarnation, until You exhaled Your last breath on the Cross; and I implore that You incline towards me Your beloved Face so that, prostrating before it, I may invoke these words that emanate from my heart: Beloved Face! Adorable Face!

I see You saddened and sorrowed by the ingratitude of men, who insulted and offended You, spat on You and crowned You with thorns, because You predicated to them the doctrine of love, and You offered yourself to the Eternal Father for their redemption.

I see You perturbed and stained by the sweat, the blood, the dust and saliva, and by the impulse of my heart, I run, like Veronica ran, to rinse and clean Your Face with the cloth of my prayers and my sparse virtues.

Most Holy Face, may Your image remain impressed, sculpted in my heart for ever, with the end that I will never cease to contemplate and adore You. And You, Omnipotent God, grant me the salvation of my soul, and the grace that I ask of You in this Triduum. Amen
SECOND DAY - VERONICA

Blessed a thousand times are the cries of Veronica. Moved by love for You, My Jesus, a love that flowered in the heart of that holy woman, she reverentially covered with a veil your most serene Face, to wipe and rinse the sweat and the blood that bathed it, and to clean the dust and the filth that darkened and stained it.

By the touch of her hands, like the touch of the blind, the soul of Veronica is blind for love of You, Lord; she perceived perfectly the image of your divine Face.

And just like it remained stamped on the three folds of her veil, forever was your Holy Face inprinted on her soul.

My God, given that my hands do not deserve the favor that you gave to Veronica, have the mercy to infuse in me a fervent spirit of reparation, never to be extinguished nor to become lukewarm. Amen
Recite the Our Father prayer three times in honor of the Holy Face

"Show us, Lord, your Face, and we shall be saved!"
FINAL PRAYER

All Omnipotent God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; by that first act of reparation made by Veronica on the rostrum of our Redeemer, and by all those who receive in contemplation the Holy Face, which we venerate and adore, grant us pardon for our sins, and the joy of contemplating it eternaly in all its celestial splendor. Amen
