“By offering My Face to My Eternal Father
nothing will be refused,
and the conversion of many sinners
will be obtained.”
~ Jesus to Sr. Mary of St. Peter
THE GOLDEN ARROW PRAYER OF REPARATION
IN PRAISE OF THE MOST HOLY NAME OF GOD
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.
AN OFFERING OF THE HOLY FACE OF
OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GOD THE FATHER
IN ORDER TO APPEASE HIS JUSTICE
AND DRAW DOWN MERCY UPON US
Eternal Father, turn away Your angry gaze from our guilty people whose face has become unsightly in Your eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Your Beloved Son, for this is the Face of Him in Whom You are well pleased.
We now offer You this Holy Face, covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises in reparation for the crimes of our age in order to appease Your anger, justly provoked against us.
Because Your divine Son our Redeemer has taken upon His Head all the sins of His members, that they might be spared, we now beg of You, Eternal Father, to grant us mercy. Amen.
AN ASPIRATION TO THE ETERNAL FATHER
TO BE FREQUENTLY RECITED 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. Amen.
PRAYER TO REPRODUCE THE IMAGE OF GOD
IN OUR SOULS
Our Lord told Sr. Mary of St. Peter that the Image of His Holy Face is like a Divine Stamp, which, if applied to souls through prayer, has the power of imprinting anew within them the Image of God.
I salute You, I adore You, and I love You, O adorable Face of my beloved Jesus, as the noble stamp of the Divinity! Completely surrendering my soul to You, I most humbly beg You to stamp this seal upon us all, so that the image of God may once more be reproduced by its imprint in our souls. Amen.
PRAYER TO OBTAIN THE SETTLEMENT
OF ALL OUR NEEDS
O Eternal Father, since it has pleased our Divine Savior to reveal to mankind in our present century the power residing in His Holy Face, we now avail ourselves of this Treasure in our great needs.
Since our Savior Himself promised that by offering to You, O Eternal Father, the Holy Face disfigured in the Passion, we can procure the settlement of the affairs of our household, and that nothing whatsoever will be refused us, we now come before Your Throne.
Offering to You, O God, this adorable Countenance, disfigured with painful bruises and covered with shame and confusion, we beg through the merits of this Holy Face to obtain these, our most pressing needs.
Grant us pardon, Eternal Father, for the worst crimes of our age, which are atheism, blasphemy, (abortion, added), and the desecration of Your holy days.
Avert from us destruction by war and its consequences which loom through the malice of revolutionary men who have risen up to stamp out religion from the face of the earth through false indoctrination, and who now stand ready to impose their wicked designs with militaristic force.
May this offering of the Holy Face of our Savior before Your Throne of majesty obtain for us deliverance from these evils.
Send us, O God, zealous and enlightened laborers, by conferring many vocations to the priesthood and to religion, so that by their prayers, their works, and their sacrifices they may spread the blessings of Your Church and confound Your enemies. Amen.
THE CHAPLET OF REPARATION
The Chaplet of Reparation was given by Our Lord to Sr. Mary of St. Peter to battle against the enemies of God, especially communists. Using this chaplet, additional prayers may be recited to make further reparation to Our Lord.
On the Crucifix say:
Eternal Father I offer You the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ and all the other instruments of His Holy Passion, that You may put division in the camp of Your enemies; for as Your Beloved Son has said, “A kingdom divided against itself shall fall.”
On the next five beads say:
1. May God arise and let His enemies be scattered and let those who hate Him flee before His Face!
2. May the thrice Holy Name of God overthrow all their plans!
3. May the Holy Name of the Living God split them up by disagreements!
4. May the terrible Name of the God of Eternity stamp out all their godlessness!
5. 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.”
On the medal say the “Golden Arrow” prayer.
On the thirty-three white beads say:
“Arise, O Lord, and let Your enemies be scattered, and let those that hate You flee before Your Face.”
On each of the six large beads say: “My Jesus, mercy” and one “Glory Be.”
On the medal at the end say:
ETERNAL FATHER, I 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. (It is recommended this particular prayer also be recited frequently throughout the day).
To conclude, say: “O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.”
THE PRAYER OF BLESSED MARIA PIERINA DE MICHELI
O Blessed Face of my kind Savior, by the tender love and piercing sorrow of Our Lady as she beheld you in your cruel Passion, grant us to share in this intense sorrow and love so as to fulfill the holy will of God to the utmost of our ability. Amen.

SAINT MARIA FAUSTINA KOWALSKA'S

PRAYER OF SAINT THERESE
OF THE CHILD JESUS AND OF THE HOLY FACE
O Jesus, who in Thy bitter Passion didst become “the most abject of men, a man of sorrows,” I venerate Thy Sacred Face whereon there once did shine the beauty and sweetness of the Godhead;but now it has become for me as if it were the face of a leper!
Nevertheless, under those disfigured features, I recognize Thy infinite Love and I am consumed with the desire to love Thee and make Thee loved by all men.
The tears, which well up abundantly in Thy sacred eyes, appear to me as so many precious pearls that I love to gather up, in order to purchase the souls of poor sinners by means of their infinite value.
O Jesus, whose adorable face ravishes my heart, I implore Thee to fix deep within me Thy divine image and to set me on fire with Thy Love, that I may be found worthy to come to the contemplation of Thy glorious Face in Heaven. Amen.
A PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Lord Jesus Christ, sublime model of all perfection, You not only unceasingly urge privileged souls to strive toward this lofty goal, but also move them by the mighty power of Your grace to follow You in this exalted path.
Grant that many may hear and willingly obey Your loving inspiration and embrace the religious life, where they will enjoy Your special solicitude and tender care.
Grant that in every part of the world choice souls may flourish—souls that by contemplation and penance offer reparation for the crimes of man-kind and draw down Your pity.
Into the ranks of Your beloved and chosen ones send many good vocations: souls firmly resolved to make themselves worthy of the great grace offered them and of the holy institute they aspire to join, through the exact observance of their religious duties, by assiduous prayer, constant mortification, and the perfect conformity of their will with all that is Your will.
Enlighten, O Lord Jesus, many generous hearts with the ardent rays of Your Holy Spirit, eternal and substantial love; and by the powerful intercession of Your most loving mother, Mary, enkindle and sustain the fervor of Your love in these hearts, for the glory of the Father and of the same Holy Spirit, Who live and reign with You eternally. Amen. ~ Pope Pius XII
THE FIRST FIVE SATURDAYS DEVOTION:
AN ACT OF REPARATION
TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
On the first Saturday of five consecutive months:
Make a good sacramental confession (this can actually be done a reasonable number of days before the first Saturday, as long as the person is in a state of grace on the first Saturday).
Receive Holy Communion.
Pray a Rosary (5 decades or more) properly attentively saying the vocal prayers while meditating on the mysteries.
Spend 15 minutes or more in the company of Mary meditating on one or more of the mysteries of the Rosary (this is in addition to praying the Rosary in #3).
All components of this devotion must be done with the intention of making reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for sin.
This act of reparation consoles the sorrows of God, Jesus, and the Blessed Mother, in particular for five sins of blasphemy against the Immaculate Heart of Mary: blasphemies against her Immaculate Conception, against her perpetual virginity, against her divine and spiritual maternity, blasphemies rejecting and dishonoring of her images, and the neglect of placing within the hearts of children a knowledge and love of our Immaculate Mother.
“Apply yourself diligently to honor
My Sacred Heart and also the Heart of My Mother. Never separate these two hearts.
It is My desire that you pray to these two hearts
for yourself and for sinners.”
~ Jesus to Sr. Mary of St. Peter
