THE CHAPLET OF THE HOLY FACE
This chaplet is for the purpose of honoring the five senses of Our Lord Jesus Christ, specifically in relation to His Holy Face, and to ask of God for His Triumph of His Holy Church and the downfall of Her enemies.
The chaplet is composed of a cross and thirty-nine beads. They are divided into five parts of six beads each, in honor of the five senses of TOUCH, HEARING, SIGHT, SMELL, and TASTE. There is also a medal of the Holy Face attached to this chaplet. Like any rosary, there are three beads for use at the end. See the tutorial below.
Father forgive them for they know not what they do. Glory be...
This day you shall be with Me in paradise. Glory be...
Woman behold your son. Son behold your mother. Glory be...
My God, My God! Why have you abandoned Me? Glory be...
I thirst. Glory be...
It is consummated. Glory be...
Father into Your hands I commend My Spirit. Glory be...
On the medal at the end pray:
O God, our Protector, look down upon us and cast Your eyes upon the Face of Your Christ!
Extra prayers to be said on the five beads at the end:
May God arise and let His enemies be scattered and let those who hate Him flee before His Face.
May the thrice Holy Name of God overthrow all their plans.
May the Holy Name of the Living God split them up by disagreements.
May the terrible name of the God of Eternity stamp out all their godlessness.
Lord, I do not desire the death of the sinner, but that he be converted and live. Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.
The Golden Arrow (Preceded by Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be)
May the most holy, most sacred, most adorable, most incomprehensible, and unutterable Name of God be always praised, blessed, loved, adored and glorified, in Heaven, on earth, and under the earth, 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.
You can say the following prayer any time you want and often during the day:
Eternal Father, we offer You the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with blood, sweat, dust and spittle, in reparation for the crimes of communists, blasphemers, and for the profaners of the Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday. Amen.
Every time someone takes the Lord’s name in vain say this:
Sit Nomen Domini benedictum! Vade retro, Satana!
(Blessed be the name of God) (Begone Satan)
The Holy Face image I have presented on my website is the image approved by the church and venerated by the Doctor of the Church, Saint Therese of Lisieux. The controversy and the confusion caused by the appearance of a more recent image, (the image of Manoppello), is a non issue to those who are truly devoted to Jesus and His Holy Face.
Sign of the cross -
O God incline unto my aid. O Lord, make haste to help me. Glory be...
Each of the five groupings:
Touch, Hearing, Sight, Smell, Taste
Reflect on the suffering which Our Lord endured in His Face, through each one of these senses.
My Jesus Mercy! Glory be...
Small beads (6xs):
Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered,
and let them that hate You flee before Your Face!
At the end continue onto the last 3 beads with the “Arise” statement while pondering the wounds on His Holy Face from the slaps and the crown of thorns and His 3 years of public ministry.
After all the above repeat “Glory Be” 7 times in honor of the seven last words of Jesus from the cross, or state the seven last words in the following manner:
