Prayer to the Holy Face

By St. Thérèse of Lisieux

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; but now it

has become for me as if it were the

face of a leper!  Nevertheless, under

those disfigured features, I recognize

Thy infinite love and I am consumed

with the desire to love Thee and make

Thee loved by all men.  The tears which

well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes

appear to me as so many precious pearls

that I love to gather up, in order to purchase

the souls 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 contemplation

of Thy glorious face in Heaven.  Amen.
