“Eternal Father, we offer Thee the Adorable Face of Thy Well Beloved Son for the honor and glory of Thy Holy Name and for the salvation of all men.”
—Prayer of Pope Bl. Pius IX
The devotion to the Holy Face is one of the most powerful devotions in the world.
Many miracles are associated with the Holy Face, including the Shroud of Turin and the Veil of Veronica—but so few Catholics actually take advantage of this powerful devotion.
The devotion to the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ and particularly to His Holy Face is one of the oldest in Catholic Tradition. This devotion was practiced by great saints like St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Gertrude the Great, St. Mechtilde, St. Edmund, and St. Bonaventure.
This booklet will be the perfect tool to help you understand the important aspects and practices of devoting oneself to the Holy Face. With clear background information, everything you need to know to begin the devotion, and the many prayers included for your benefit, this booklet will become a treasured part of your prayer life.
Beginning in 1844, Our Lord appeared to Sr. Mary of St. Peter and expressed His desire that world should know and practice this devotion in reparation for man's blasphemy against God. Through the efforts of Sr. Mary of St. Peter, Venerable Leo DuPont, and countless others, this devotion has become better known and more frequently practiced. However, many still fail to make reparation to the Holy Face and don’t obtain the many graces that come from this spiritual weapon.
With this booklet in hand, enter into the spiritual battlefield to which God calls us, making reparations and fighting blasphemy for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Its such a blessing to learn more about our Catholic devotions through Tan books. Tan books has many such books and booklets that will help you deepen your faith.
Great booklet! Explains the history and promises of the devotion. The back has nice prayers to say. Easy to read and informative.
I wasn;t sure what to expect with this little booklet. I purchased it as a digital version elsewhere first. After going through the devotion, and then being rocked to my core spiritually while reading it, I bought the physical book through TAN because It's something that my home needs to have no matter what;s going on outside (meaning the possibility that power will no longer be available at some point given current events). Everyone should have this booklet and do this devotion!
Awesome book and convenient size. Gave it away to a friend to read and to pass on
