The Golden Arrow

May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible name of God be forever praised, loved, adored and glorified in Heaven, on earth and in the hell by all the creatures of God, and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.

(This prayer was revealed by our Lord to a Carmelite nun of Tours in 1843 as reparation for blasphemy. “This Golden Arrow will wound My Heart delightfully,” He said, “and heals wounds inflicted by blasphemy.”)

Act of Consecration to the Holy Face

“I salute Thee, I adore Thee, I love Thee, O adorable Face of Jesus, my Beloved, noble seal of the divinity. I apply myself and consecrate my whole being with all the powers of my soul and I pray Thee most humbly to impress upon me the Image of God effaced by sin.”

Prayer of St. Therese of the Child 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; 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 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.

Offering of the Holy Face to Appease God’s Justice and Draw down Mercy upon us

Eternal Father, turn away Thine angry gaze from all guilty people whose faces have become unsightly in Thy eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Thy Beloved Son, for this is the Face of Him in Whom Thou art well pleased. We now offer Thee this Holy Face, covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises, in reparation for the crimes of our age, in order to appease Thee anger, justly provoked against us. Because Thy Divine Son, our Redeemer, has taken upon His head all the sins of His people that they might be spared, we now beg of Thee, Eternal Father, to grant us mercy. Amen. (Archconfraternity of the Holy Face)

Prayer of St. Pius IX

“O My Jesus, cast upon us a look of mercy; turn Thy Face towards each of us as Thou did 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 the strength the vigor necessary to sustain the combats of life. Amen.”

Holy Shroud of Turin Prayer

“O Lord our God, by meditating on your word and on the marks of Christ ‘s Passion, imprinted on the Holy Shroud, we have better understood the love which made Him sacrifice His life for us. Help us to recognize Him in all who suffer around us. We want the love which He came to bring on earth to spread throughout the world. Grant us this in the Name of Jesus. Amen.”
