For the Preservation of the Deposit of the Faith!
For the Kingdom of God to come!
I adore and love You, O adorable Face of Jesus, my Savior, once again covered with spittle and insults by blasphemers, and I offer You, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, like incense and a sweet-smelling perfume, the tributes of the angels and Saints, humbly praying to You, O Jesus, by the virtue of Your holy Face, to cleanse and restore in me and in all men Your image disfigured by sin. Amen.
Lord Jesus, as I contemplate Your features disfigured by suffering, and meditate on Your Passion, could my heart not be set ablaze with love for You… and with hatred against the sin that still today outrages Your adorable Face? … But do not allow me, Lord, to stop at a sterile compassion, make me a worthy child of Mary, and grant me the grace that, in the company of my divine Mother, I may follow You so closely on this new Calvary that the opprobrium directed to You, O Jesus, may also be reflected on me, a member of Your holy Church, so that I may enter into the way of atonement and true love. Amen.
O adorable Face of my Jesus, bowed so mercifully on the Cross for the salvation of the world! I love You and adore You… even today, in Your mercy, bow down to us, poor sinners. Drop upon us a compassionate gaze and one of Your tears of love to convert and purify our hearts. Amen.
Mon Jésus, pardon et miséricorde!
Par les mérites de Vos saintes Plaies et les douleurs de Votre sainte Mère.
My Jesus, pardon and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
