Leader: Prayer of reparation to OUR MOTHERS HOLY FACE disfigured by tears.
All. My Dearest Mother, Mary, whose lovely face shines with understanding, Love and compassion; whose eyes reflect a soul brimming with grace and over flowing with virtue; whose countenance disarms the most obstinate Heart; whose beauty ravishes the soul!
We freeze in awe as to what our sins and the sacrileges committed against Your Divine Son, Jesus, and You, have wrought on your adorable Countenance.
Behold Your face, a perfect reflection of the gentleness and goodness with which God has endowed You, now saddened and disfigured by tears, we implore God's mercy for ourselves, sinners, heretics and those who cast slurs on Your role in the redemption of mankind. Your tears, dearest Mother, destroy the rule of satan.
By the same tears, O Queen of Heaven and Earth (we call down the power of your Son, Jesus Christ to scatter and confuse the enemy). To foil his evil cunning plans of blinding the children of God, to the befittedness of calling on your name Mary, THE MOTHER OF GOD, as a necessary means of salvation; as a necessary channel of GOD S Mercy and Grace, as our Co-Redemptrix, as a mother of Mercy and unbounded love-who would turn back no sinner no matter how grievous the sins if he would but turn to you and be contrite. A Mother who would refuse us her children nothing in the presence of Her SON, JESUS; we find as our last recourse, our last hope!
O weeping mother, we adore each drop of your tears as a manifestation of God's Love, Mercy and Compassion for us. We wish to make reparations to you for the blasphemy and
Unbelief of heretics by the desires of our poor Hearts to:
Love You, Revere You, Honour You, Bless You, Be Devoted To You, Have Recourse To You, Trust You, And Hail You as our mother, our Mediatrix, our Refuge our comforter, our last hope, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, our Eternal Queen the Adorable Mother of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Mother of our God
Enable us dear mother, by your tears and the intercession
of Saint, Raphael, Barachiel, Michael, Gabriel and St.
Joseph to make you known, Loved, Honoured and revered,
O Mystical Rose and Tower of lvory, be our Strength. Amen.
Urgent Prayer to St. Joseph
Dear Saint Joseph, the Chaste Spouse of Mary. Rise to the defence of the dignity of she who was born Immaculate, lived Immaculate, died Immaculate, and was assumed into Heaven, Immaculate; the Virgin Mother of your foster Son, Jesus. The one they called the carpenter's son. Like of old, the iniquities of men seek to harm Her by snatching Her Son from Her; in blasphemy and heresy. Won't you rise to Her defence as of old when you foiled the plans of the workers of iniquity? Won't you shield her Glorious Name from the assault of heresy, as indeed you shield Her from Herod's persecution and scurried Her to safety in Egypt? Won't you shield Her children from the onslaught of heresy, eviland impurity?. You once defended Her purity by accepting Her as your most holy spouse in spite of what men might think or say. Now more than ever before we require you to shield Her Most Holy Name from the lying tongues of men, from the ingratitude of men and from the dangerous blasphemies to which the name of this Most Holy Queen is subjected. Confound those lying tongues with your power from heaven. Secure for us a niche in her most loving heart, a loving heart you know too well and bring about the glorious reign of Her Immaculate Heart flame of love in souls. Behold Her tears of blood. Comfort Her by obtaining for us a deep sincere love for Her, true conversion and the desire to serve Her Son, Jesus, through Her, all the days of our life on Earth - until you bring us safely to Her bosom in Heaven. Amen.
Jesus, I greet You with My heart, My soul and My body, My mind, My understanding, My intellect and My will and I give it all to You: Jesus, I Love You a billion times; and may each `I love You' become a little dart, flaming with the Fire of Your Divine Love; and may it pierce the most inner dept Of Your Heart then You will know that it is I, and I Love You.
