Lenten Preparation Novena to the Holy Face Second Day – 18 February

Lenten Preparation Novena to the Holy Face
Second Day – 18 February



O Most Holy and Blessed Trinity,
through the intercession of Holy Mary,
whose soul was pierced through
by a sword of sorrow
at the sight of the passion of her Divine Son,
we ask Your help,
in making a perfect Novena of Reparation with Jesus,
united with all His sorrows, love and total abandonment.
We now implore all the Angels and Saints
to intercede for us as we pray this Holy Novena
to the Most Holy Face of Jesus
and for the glory of the most Holy Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


(Console Holy Face and recite Daily Preparatory Prayer)

Psalm 51,5-6a.
My offences truly I know them,
My sin is always before me,
Against you, you alone, have I sinned,
What is evil in your sight I have done.

Most Holy Face of Jesus,
we are truly sorry that we have hurt You so much
by constantly doing what is wrong
and for all the good works we have failed to do.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, Saint Joseph,
intercede for us,
help us to console the Most Holy Face of Jesus.
Pray that we may share in the tremendous love
Thou hast for one another
and for the most Holy and Blessed Trinity.

Through the merits of Your Precious Blood and Your Holy Face,
O Jesus, grant us our petition. ……………..
Pardon and mercy.

Prayer of the Church to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, Sanctifier, all powerful God of love,
Thou who didst fill the Virgin Mary with grace,
Thou who didst wonderfully transform the hearts of the apostles.
Thou who didst endow all Thy martyrs with a miraculous heroism,
come and sanctify us, illumine our minds, strengthen our wills,
purify our consciences, rectify our judgements, set our hearts on fire and preserve us from the misfortune of resisting Thine inspirations.
We consecrate to Thee our understanding,
our heart and our will, our whole being for time and for eternity.
May our understanding be always submissive to
Thy heavenly inspirations
and to the teachings of Thy Holy Catholic Church,
of which Thou art the infallible guide.
may our heart he ever inflamed with love of God and neighbour,
may our will be ever conformed to the divine will
and may our whole life be a faithful imitation
of the life and virtues of our
Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ,
to whom with the Father
and Thee be honour and glory forever.

Pray (1) Our Father, (3) Hail Marys, (1) Glory Be.

O Bleeding Face, O Face Divine, be every adoration Thine (Three times)

lenten novena to the holy face day two - 18 feb 2020


Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you πŸ™
