O Lord Jesus Christ,
in presenting ourselves before Thine adorable Face,
to ask of Thee the graces of which we stand in most need,
we beseech Thee above all,
to grant us that interior disposition
of never refusing at any time
to what Thou requirest of us
by Thy holy commandments and divine inspirations.
O Good Jesus, who hadst said,
“Ask and you shall receive, seek and ye shall find,
knock and it shall be opened to you,”
grant us O Lord, that faith which obtains all,
or supply in us what may be deficient;
grant us, by the pure effect of Thy charity,
and for Thine eternal glory,
the graces which we need
and which we look from Thine infinite mercy.
Be merciful to us, O my God,
and reject not our prayers,
when amid our afflictions,
we call upon Thy Holy Name
and seek with love and confidence
Thine adorable Face.
O Almighty and Eternal God,
look upon the Face of Thy Son Jesus.
We present It to Thee with confidence
to implore Thy pardon.
The All-Merciful Advocate
opens His mouth to plead our cause;
hearken to His cries,
behold His tears, O God,
and through His infinite merits,
hearken to Him when He intercedes
for us poor miserable sinners.
Adorable Face of Jesus,
my only love, my light,
and my life,
grant that I may know Thee,
love Thee and serve Thee alone,
that I may live with Thee, of Thee,
by Thee and for Thee.
I offer Thee the adorable Face of Thy Beloved Son
for the honor and glory of Thy Name,
for the conversion of sinners
and the salvation of the dying.
O Divine Jesus,
through Thy Face and Name, save us.
Our Hope is in the virtue of Thy Holy Name!
