I SALUTE, I ADORE, I LOVE THEE

I SALUTE, I ADORE, I LOVE THEE

I salute, I adore, I love thee, O Sacred Face of my Jesus, Saviour of mankind, outraged anew by blasphemers, profaned in the Adorable Sacrament of thy love, insulted by the abominations committed before thee, and I offer thee, through the heart of thy Blessed Mother, the worship of all the Angels and Saints, as sweet incense in thy sight, humbly beseeching thee, by the virtue of that look with which thou didst regard fallen man and resolve to raise him up to the kiss of peace with thee, to repair and renew in our souls thine image disfigured by sin. Amen.

– From: St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916

O ADORABLE FACE OF MY JESUS

O ADORABLE FACE OF MY JESUS

ESPECIALLY ON FRIDAYS AND DURING LENT/PASSIONTIDE 

O adorable Face of my Jesus, so mercifully bowed down upon the Tree of the Cross, on the day of thy Passion, for the salvation of the world, incline thy pity now towards poor sinners, cast upon us a look of compassion, and receive us with the kiss of peace.

– St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916

O MY JESUS! CAST UPON US A LOOK OF MERCY

O MY JESUS! CAST UPON US A LOOK OF MERCY

O my Jesus! cast upon us a look of mercy; turn thy Face towards each of us as thou didst to Veronica, not that we may see It with our bodily eyes, for this we do not deserve; but turn It towards our hearts, so that, remembering thee, we may ever draw from this fountain of strength the vigour necessary to sustain the combats of life.

– Pope Pius IX

PRAYER OF “THE LITTLE FLOWER”

PRAYER OF “THE LITTLE FLOWER”

O Jesus, Who in thy cruel Passion didst become the “Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,” I worship thy Divine Face. Once it shone with the beauty and sweetness of the Divinity; now for my sake It is become as the face of a leper. Yet in that disfigured Countenance I recognise thine infinite Love, and I am consumed with the desire of loving thee and of making thee loved by all mankind. The tears that streamed in such abundance from thine Eyes are to me as precious pearls which I delight to gather, that with their infinite worth I may ransom the souls of poor sinners.

O Jesus, Whose Face is the sole beauty that ravishes my heart, I may not behold here upon earth the sweetness of thy Glance, nor feel the ineffable tenderness of thy Kiss. Thereto I consent, but I pray thee to imprint in me the Divine Likeness, and I implore thee so to inflame me with thy Love, that it may quickly consume me, and soon I may reach the vision of thy Glorious Face in Heaven! Amen.

– St Anthony’s Treasury, Laverty & Sons, Leeds, 1916

“IMPRINT IN ME THY DIVINE LIKENESS”

PRAYER TO THE HOLY FACE

O Jesus, who in thy Cruel Passion didst become the “Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows”, I worship thy Divine Face. Once it shone with the beauty and sweetness of the Divinity; now for my sake it has become as the face of a “leper”. Yet in that disfigured countenance I recognise thy infinite love and I am consumed with the desire of loving thee and making thee loved by all mankind.

The tears that streamed in such abundance from thine eyes are to me as precious pearls which I delight to gather, that with their infinite worth I may ransom the souls of poor sinners.

O Jesus, whose face is the sole beauty that ravishes my heart, I may not behold here upon earth the sweetness of thy kiss. Thereto I consent, but I pray thee to imprint in me thy Divine Likeness, and I implore thee to so inflame me with thy love, that it may quickly consume me and soon I may reach the vision of thy glorious Face in Heaven! Amen.
