Devotion to the Holy Face

I found these sites today and have to read more on them:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Face_of_Jesus
http://www.catholictradition.org/Christ/holy-face.htm
http://www.holyface.org.uk/contact.htm
http://www.holyface.com/maineng.htm

They contain much information of a Vatican-approved devotion which has its own Feast on Shrove Tuesday, the day of the Mardigras. If only the world can rediscover this feast, which is such a great gift, I am sure the sensuality and coarseness of this day can be wiped out.

The promises of Jesus to Sister Marie Pierina and to Sister Mary of St. Peter are categorical:


"Every time my Face is contemplated I will pour out my love into the heart of those persons, and by means of my Holy Face the salvation of many souls will be obtained”.

"Those who will contemplate the wounds on My Face here on earth, shall contemplate it radiant in heaven."

I saw a pamphlet at the Church where my younger brother attends school. The devotion moved quite a bit me as I read about it, prompting me to mail to the Holy Face Association for a medal. I'm happy you're spreading the word regarding this devotion.

A very nice blog you've put together here as well.
