Novena to Honor the Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus Feast is on (Shrove Tuesday)


Our Lord wanted the novena 9 days before Shrove Tuesday but the novena said any time there is a great need for reparation. Our Lord asked for the nine days before Lent begins but one could also pray the novena anytime during Lent. Maybe nine days before Good Friday. During the novena we will walk with our Lord and compassionate our Lord in his sufferings. “I looked for one to comfort me but I found none.” Psalm 69:20 Will You join me in daily prayer to atone for our sins and let us ask Our Lord to help us to make a good Lent.

Prayer to Saint Peter

St. Peter’s Church Holy Year Door Panel- Peter’s Denial Jesus’ Gaze

O glorious Saint Peter, who in return for thy lively and generous faith, thy profound and sincere humility and thy burning love, was honored by Jesus Christ with singular privileges, and in particular, with the leadership of the other apostles and the primacy of the whole church, of which thou was made the foundation stone, do thou obtain for us the grace of a lively faith, that shall not fear to profess itself openly in its entirety and in all of its manifestations, even to the shedding of blood, if occasion should demand it, and to the sacrifice of life itself in preference to surrender. Obtain for us likewise a sincere loyalty to our Holy Mother the Church. Grant that we may ever remain most closely and sincerely united to the Holy Father, who is the heir of thy faith and of thy authority, the one true visible head of the Catholic Church. Grant, moreover, that we may follow, in all humility and meekness, the Church’s teaching and counsels and may be obedient to all her precepts, in order to be able here on earth to enjoy a peace that is sure and undisturbed, and to attain one day in heaven to everlasting happiness. Amen. Continue reading
