PRAYER OF ST. THERESA OF JESUS
TO THE HOLY FACE
O Jesus, Who in
Thy bitter Passion didst become
"the most abject of men, a man of sorrows," I venerate Thy Sacred Face
whereon there once did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead;
now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper!
under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am
consumed with with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all
The tears which well abundantly in Thy sacred eyes appear to me as so
precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase the
of poor sinners by means of their infinite value.
O Jesus, Whose
adorable Face ravishes my heart,
I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy Divine Image and to set me on
fire with Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the
of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen.
since Thou hast given me for
my inheritance the Adorable Face of Thy Divine Son, I offer that face
to Thee and I beg Thee, in exchange for this coin of infinite value,
to forget the ingratitude of souls dedicated to Thee and to pardon all
