Product Description

Devotion to the Holy Face of our Lord Jesus Christ is not new in the Church.
Devotion to the Holy Face of our Lord Jesus Christ is not new in the Church. It dates back to the coming of our Lord into this world. The first adorers of the Sacred Countenance were our Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph, the shepherds, the Magi and later the Apostles and disciples. The people, too, admirers of His wisdom and His doctrine, were in a special way impressed with the aspect of His Adorable Face, "Upon which," says St. Jerome, "shine the rays of Divine Majesty." For this Face, was by turns sweet and severe, merciful and terrible; It wore an expression of tenderness and benignity towards little children, but it terrified the sellers in the Temple. The glories of Tabor, the dolors of the Passion, reflected on the Divine Face, have been at all times the ravishing object and the subject of contemplation of noble hearts and of elect souls such as St. Augustine, St. Bernard, St. Gertrude, St. Mech-tildes, and of our times, St. Therese of the Child Jesus, the Ven. M. Dupont and Sister Marie St. Pierre, Discalced Carmelite Nun of Tours.Devotion to the Sacred Sorrowful Face seems to have been inaugurated by our Lord Himself, for on His sorrowful way to Calvary, He miraculously left the image of His Bloodstained Countenance on the Veil of the noble Roman matron, Veronica, who had braved the impious rabble in order to give Him the comfort of wiping His Face. With jealous care, this Sacred Relic, saturated with the Sweat and Blood of our Divine Lord, has been preserved and guarded by the Sovereign Pontiffs and devotion to this Sorrowful Face has been publicly practiced from time immemorial in the basilica of St.Peter at the Vatican.
