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!
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
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!"
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 eternally in all
its celestial splendor. Amen
