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
THIRD DAY - JESUS RECEIVES THE CROSS
Your human nature, My Jesus, could have clouded and saddened your
most serene Face, when they placed your hands before the wood
of our redemption. It could have also become saddened with the sorrow
of agony and death, finding yourself only with your three disciples
amongs the olive groves of Gethsemane.
But, upon seeing the cross, your
divinity made it so that, in a single instant your Holy Face would
shine with an ineffable joy. You knew you were going to begin the last
and most bitter act of reparation for our sins. In your mind were recorded
the words imposing the obligation of taking up the Cross to those who wanted
to follow You. And in this way You took the one that the executioner presented;
you hugged your Cross and you carried it upon your shoulders.
O My Jesus! How
petty, how insignificant I now see the sacrifices, the mortifications and
the renouncements that I have chosen to offer you in acts of reparation!
May You, O Lord, from this moment on, be the one Who imposes these on me. I want to
receive my cross from Your hands. 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
