A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
St Paul is responsible for a significant portion of the writings in the New Testament!
This, from a man who was persecuting Christian’s and was complicit, or even largely responsible for the stoning and death of St Stephen, the first Christian Martyr.
How much more the graces, then, of the Greatest Disciple of Our Lord, than that of Mary!
How much more the graces to her that bears the title of Mother of God!
How much more to the simplicity and humility of the hand maid of the Lord, in her yes, her obedient acceptance to God's will, of preparing the son, for his Holy priesthood, his salvific mission, his Holy Passion that conquers sin and death!
How much greater for this one who walked with and witnessed, the torture, torment, and great suffering of your only begotten son, the spiritual martyrdom that it took, to bear witness and pray for death of the God man, your son, in humble obedience to the Will of the Father!
This is the one who bears the Honor of the one whom all generations will call blessed!
This is the one who is filled with God’s Grace. This is the one in whom God of the universe gives honor!
Who are we not to?
When you live in surrender, in spiritual poverty, in blind obedience we become the most powerful instrument of God’s healing!
It is when we become the most powerful weapon of choice to conquer the demon!
It is when we become the voice of reason, the pillar of truth and faith, and the trumpet of Gabriel so that all know clearly the deception of the devil and his lies!
It is when we become the Pillar of light and love that pierces the darkness and touches the hearts with the divine and luminous light of God and the Flame of Love of Christ Jesus!
It is the Power of the Holy Spirit that now dwells in us!
It is Peace
It is Joy
It is serenity
It is Love
It is the Power of Perfect Charity that is the Divine Love of the Triune God
It is the community of the Angels and Saints in tandem with the communion of the Church
It is the Spirit of Family
It is the Spirit of Docility
It is Christianity
And we stand firmly and with meekness in the supernatural graces and blessings of our Faith!
One, in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
Empty yourselves now from the attachments of this world so that you may be consumed in the power of prayer and filled with the graces of God!
Let your trust be complete and your smile be contagious!
This is the joy and serenity of Divine Love!
The spirit of greed, the spirit of fear, the spirit of pride, and the spirit of control are all attached to attachments of the “things” of this world!
The Spirit of Docility, the Spirit of Family and Trust are the means to overcome them.
We must humbly and obediently surrender and let go, so that we can be filled with the Spiritual Graces God longs to give us!
Humility and Obedience
Heavenly Father we offer you the Immaculate heart of Mary filled with the wounds of our Lord Jesus Christ suffered during his holy passion in reparation for the crimes and the sins of humanity especially sins of abortion and all the torment and the sins that come with it.
We pray for the cold hearts, the stony hearts, and the black hearts.
We pray for the dry and withered souls. The darkened souls, that long for the living waters of grace and of the Holy Spirit and the light of Christ!
Heavenly Father, cast your light into the darkness of their hearts, irrigate the souls of the just and the unjust alike with the Power of the Holy Spirt, and Lord Jesus, show them the light of your Face!
Let the Flame of Love burn brightly and it’s warmth be distributed to all who seek God’s grace!
When the Spirit of Docility consumes us we become the center of the Divine Will and life and the world comes to us in a new spiritual awareness.
We become good stewards of all God graces and we exercise the full power of the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit!
It is when we live in the fullness of the Virtues of the Holy Spirit, in the humility and obedience of Mary!
It is when the heart of Jesus and our hearts are one heart!
It is holiness in the saintly manner God intends for us!
We become the conductors baton in the grand orchestra of God’s universe or the staff note on a page, as the Father wills in the Grand Symphony of this life!
We become an instrument of Heaven on Earth!
It is love
It is joy
It is a contagious smile
It is peace and serenity
This is how we will dine in the midst of our enemies!
Psalm 22 (23)
The Lord, Shepherd and Host
“The Lord is my shepherd‘; I shall not want. In verdant pastures he gives me repose; beside restful waters he leads me; he refreshes my soul. He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are my side with your rod and your staff that give me courage.
You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days in my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.” Psalm 22: (DR)
Psalm 23 (24)
The Lord’s Solemn Entry into Sion
"The Lord’s are the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it. For he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.
Who can ascend the mountain of the Lord? Or who may stand in his holy place? He who is whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean, who desires not what is vein, nor swears deceitfully to his neighbor. He shall receive a blessing from the Lord, a reward from God his Savior. Such is the race that seeks for him, that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
Lift up, O gates, your lintels; reach up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may come in! Who is the king of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle. Lift up, O gates, your lintels; reach up, you ancient portals, that the king of glory may come in! Who is this king of glory? The Lord of hosts; he is the king of glory.” Psalm 23: (DR)
