Description 

Adore the Holy Face of Jesus with this St. Veronica laminated Holy card. 


On the way to Calvary, a woman of Jerusalem called Veronica, moved by the sight of Christ carrying His cross, approached Jesus and offered her veil to Him. He wiped the sweat and blood from His face and returned the cloth to her with an image of His face imprinted on it. 


This full-color, laminated prayer card features a vibrant and emotional depiction of this courageous woman, holding the veil bearing the image of Christ’s precious countenance. On the back of this card is a prayer to the Holy Face of Jesus written by St. Therese of Lisieux. 


This Prayer to the Holy Face is a profound meditation on the suffering of Jesus on his way to the cross, and implores us to remember the Precious Face of Jesus as a symbol of the Love of the Lord for all mankind, at all times, and in all ages.


Prayer on the back:

O Jesus, who in Your Cruel Passion became the “Reproach of men and the Man of Sorrows,” I worship your Divine Face.

Once it shone with the beauty and sweetness of the Divinity: now for my sake it is become a face of a “leper.”

Yet in that disfigured countenance I recognize Your infinite love, and I am consumed with the desire of love You and making You loved by all mankind. 

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

O Jesus, who Face is the sole beauty that ravishes my heart, I may not behold here upon earth the sweetness of Your glance, nor feel the ineffable tenderness of Your Kiss.

I consent to that, but I ask You to imprint in my Your Divine Likeness, and I implore You to so inflame me with Your love, that it may quickly consume me and soon I may reach the vision of Your glorious Face in heaven! Amen.
