Hail, adorable Face of Jesus, disfigured by blows, and defiled by spittle in the day of the Passion!
Hail, Sacred Face, mocked and blindfolded by the Jews!
Hail, Blessed Eyes, which wept for our sins!
Hail, Blessed Ears, assailed by blasphemies and insults!
Hail, Blessed Mouth, filled with words of tenderness and benediction for all men, but embittered in return with gall!
Hail, Noble Brow, so often bedewed with sweat and pierced for us with cruel thorns!
Hail, Sacred Face, so lovely in thy disfigurement, so noble in thine a basement!
Hail, Sacred Face of the Man of Sorrows, outraged upon earth, triumphant, adored and glorified in Heaven! Praise, thanksgiving, and love be rendered thee for ever and ever.
– St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916
