Our Guardian Angels are our most faithful friends, because they are with us day and night, always and everywhere. We ought often to invoke them.~St. John Vianney The "Friends of the Angels" mission is to spread devotion to the Holy Angels especially our own Guardian Angel and prays a short set of prayers during the morning to honor our Guardian Angel and a small prayer whenever you are called to throughout the day to honor all the Holy Angels present around you.
"Take courage and pray; your guardian angel will also pray for you, and your prayers will be answered."- Saint John Bosco
Beside each believer stands an Angel as protector and shepherd, leading him to life.-St. Basil the Great
See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared. Be attentive to him and heed his voice. Do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your sin. My authority resides in him. If you heed his voice and carry out all I tell you, I will be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes. ~Exodus 23:20-22
"The servants of Christ are protected by invisible, rather than visible, beings. But if these guard you, they do so because they have been summoned by your prayer." -- St. Ambrose.
"When tempted, invoke your angel. He is more eager to help you than you are to be helped! Ignore the devil and do not be afraid of him; he trembles and flees at the sight of your guardian angel."- Saint John Bosco
"Be good. This will make your angel happy. When sorrows and misfortunes, physical or spiritual, afflict you, turn to your guardian angel with strong trust and he will help you."- Saint John Bosco
The Angels take great pleasure in helping us with our enterprises, when they are in accordance with God's will.~St. John Vianney
The Holy Angels seek in every possible way to share with us this immense ocean of love and happiness which they themselves enjoy. Their generosity knows no bounds. This is a truth that we must do our best to understand fully and clearly. Were a rich man to say to us, “Ask me for everything you wish and I will most readily give it to you,” how happy we should be! Certainly we would not hesitate to ask for all we need. This is exactly what the Angels say to us: “Ask us and we will give you a share of all our treasures, all our graces, all our happiness, and we will give you some of all we have.” Their goodness and generosity are immense…If only we knew them better and loved them more, and were more docile to their constant whisperings, our happiness would be unspeakably great.
If we but say, “Holy Angels here present, I honor and love you and give thanks to God for all the glory He has given you.” Every one of these hundreds of Angels will hear and receive with pleasure our greeting and will repay us with a special mark of friendship, for the Angels never do things by halves. They are not like us, poor mortals, they never forget and they never grow cold. When once they are our friends, they are our friends forever.
We can also give them immense pleasure by offering mass or our good works in their honor and thanking God for all the beauty and holiness and glory that He has given them. If we do so, they will repay us a thousand times over." Extracted from "All About the Angels" by Father Paul O'Sullivan Tan Books
So to join the Friends of the Angels all you have to do is sign up and agree to pray these prayers in the morning.
Angel of God my guardian dear to whom God’s love commits me here, ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Holy Angels present throughout the world, I honor and love you and thank God for all the glory you have received.

I am astonished at the great favors which God has bestowed on me through Saint Joseph. ~St Teresa of Avila
The Sons and Daughters of Saint Joseph are men and women who seek to deepen their devotion to Saint Joseph through a few simple prayers to him everyday. Also by meditating on his simple, yet powerful life that now continues into eternity.
Here is the inspiration for the formation from the Diary of Saint Faustina:
Saint Joseph urged me to have a constant devotion to him. He himself told me to recite three prayers [the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be and the Memorare once every day. He looked at me with great kindness and gave me to know how much he is supporting this work [of mercy]. He has promised me this special help and protection. I recite the requested prayers every day and feel his special protection.~Diary of Saint Faustina 1203
Here is the Memorare:
Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who implored your help and sought your intercession were left unassisted.
Full of confidence in your power I fly unto you and beg your protection.
Despise not O Guardian of the Redeemer my humble supplication, but in your bounty, hear and answer me. Amen.
Here is the Sons and Daughters of Saint Joseph Prayer:
St. Joseph, Please adopt us as your sons and daughters. Teach us how to love as you taught your foster son, Jesus how to love. Teach us how to pray as you taught Jesus how to pray. Teach us how to work as you taught Jesus how to work. Love us as you love Jesus. Work for us as you work for Jesus. Protect us as you protected Jesus. St. Joseph as a sign of your adoption we pray for all our members' intentions and mine (your intentions). We ask this all in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I love you, Save Souls, take care of everything and that the whole world joins us! Amen
So you will pray Everyday:
An Our Father, A Hail Mary, and a Glory be, the Memorare and the Sons and Daughters of Saint Joseph prayer.
Takes 2 Minutes A Day.

“Indeed one must have faith to rub oneself with a medal…Always hold a medal of St. Joseph in your hand when making a request, having an interview, or transacting an important affair. Holding a medal in one’s hand makes one think more of St. Joseph than wearing it.”-Saint André Bessett

Meditations on Saint Joseph:
Saint Joseph was a just man, a tireless worker, the upright guardian of those entrusted to his care. May he always guard, protect and enlighten familes. (Saint John Paul II)
St. Joseph was an ordinary sort of man on whom God relied to do great things. He did exactly what the Lord wanted him to do, in each and every event that went to make up his life. (St. Josemaria Escriva)
Saint Pope John Paul II on St. Joseph:
“Let us imitate our model St. Joseph in all our endevours especially the raising and upbringing of our families. St. Joseph did Great Things in the ordinary things of life. In loving His wife, In loving His Son, and especially loving God and every person who ever lived. Let us start always in our family to love our neighbor.
How much the family of today can learn from this! "The essence and role of the family are in the final analysis specified by love. Hence the family has the mission to guard, reveal and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God's love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church his bride." This being the case, it is in the Holy Family, the original "Church in miniature (Ecclesia domestica)," that every Christian family must be reflected. "Through God's mysterious design, it was in that family that the Son of God spent long years of a hidden life. It is therefore the prototype and example for all Christian families."
The Church deeply venerates this Family, and proposes it as the model of all families.
Work was the daily expression of love in the life of the Family of Nazareth. The Gospel specifies the kind of work Joseph did in order to support his family: he was a carpenter. This simple word sums up Joseph's entire life. For Jesus, these were hidden years, the years to which Luke refers after recounting the episode that occurred in the Temple: "And he went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them" (Lk 2:51). This "submission" or obedience of Jesus in the house of Nazareth should be understood as a sharing in the work of Joseph. Having learned the work of his presumed father, he was known as "the carpenter's son." If the Family ofNazareth is an example and model for human families, in the order of salvation and holiness, so too, by analogy, is Jesus' work at the side of Joseph the carpenter.
What is crucially important here is the sanctification of daily life, a sanctification which each person must acquire according to his or her own state, and one which can be promoted according to a model accessible to all people: "St. Joseph is the model of those humble ones that Christianity raises up to great destinies;...he is the proof that in order to be a good and genuine follower of Christ, there is no need of great things--it is enough to have the common, simple and human virtues, but they need to be true and authentic."
(Extracted from Redemptoris Custos)
Apostolic Exhortation of the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II On August 15, 1989.
St. Teresa of Avila on St. Joseph
"I took for my advocate and lord the glorious Saint Joseph and commended myself earnestly to him; and I found that this my father and lord delivered me both from this trouble [a temporary paralysis] and also from other and greater troubles concerning my honor and the loss of my soul, and that he gave me greater blessings than I could ask of him. I do not remember even now that I have ever asked anything of him which he has failed to grant. I am astonished at the great favors which God has bestowed on me through this blessed saint, and at the perils from which He has freed me, both in body and in soul. To other saints the Lord seems to have given grace to succor us in some of our necessities but of this glorious saint my experience is that he succors us in them all and that the Lord wishes to teach us that as He was Himself subject to him on earth (for, being His guardian and being called His father, he could command Him) just so in Heaven He still does all that he asks. This has also been the experience of other persons whom I have advised to commend themselves to him; and even to-day there are many who have great devotion to him through having newly experienced this truth."
"I wish I could persuade everyone to be devoted to this glorious saint, for I have great experience of the blessings which he can obtain from God. I have never known anyone to be truly devoted to him and render him particular services who did not notably advance in virtue, for he gives very real help to souls who commend themselves to him. For some years now, I think, I have made some request of him every year on his festival and I have always had it granted. If my petition is in any way ill directed, he directs it aright for my greater good."
“I only beg, for the love of God, that anyone who does not believe me will put what I say to the test, and he will see by experience what great advantages come from his commending himself to this glorious patriarch and having devotion to him. Those who practice prayer should have a special affection for him always. I do not know how anyone can think of the Queen of the Angels, during the time that she suffered so much with the Child Jesus, without giving thanks to Saint Joseph for the way he helped them. If anyone cannot find a master to teach him how to pray, let him take this glorious saint as his master and he will not go astray." (St. Teresa of Avila)
The Holy Father said that the Church “venerate[s] the legal father of Jesus, because the new man takes form in him, who looks to the future with confidence and courage, does not follow his own project, but entrusts himself totally to the infinite mercy of him who fulfills the prophecies and inaugurates the season of salvation.” (Pope Benedict XVI)
My brothers and sisters take St. Joseph as your model and you will advance and climb in virtues to levels unheard of. Before devotion to St. Joseph, I used to follow my own will in regards to my sanctification. I would go to Mass/Blessed Sacrament or do other “Holy things” with no regards to my family. My true great mission that is my vocation to Marriage, I did not want to embrace. I wanted to save the world through my way and in the process I let my family down. St. Joseph showed me through humble obedience to God’s will in my life I would be able to take part in the Great mission to save souls. I had to start that “Mission”with my family. So now if it is not good for my family I may miss daily mass like I did today. My heart is there but I could not go due to family and work requirements. God blesses my desire but even more so blesses me for accepting God’s will that I not live in a church. Thanks to St. Joseph who is teaching us everyday!

"When I immersed myself in prayer and united myself with all the Masses that were being celebrated all over the world at that time, I implored God, for the sake of all these Holy Masses, to have mercy on the world and especially on poor sinners who were dying at that moment. At the same instant, I received an interior answer from God that a thousand souls had received grace through the prayerful mediation I had offered to God. We do not know the number of souls that is ours to save through our prayers and sacrifices; therefore, let us always pray for sinners.~Saint Faustina (1783 Diary)
Our Lord makes us a present of his most Holy Face, that we may thereby be all-powerful before the throne of God.~Sr. Marie Peter "Let the soul who is desirous of advancing in perfection hasten to My Sacred Heart ~ but he who yearns to make even greater progress and to mount still higher on the wings of desire, must rise with the swiftness of an eagle and hover about my Sacred Face, supported like a seraph, on the wings of overpowering love."(Our Lord to St. Gertrude the Great)
The Army of the Face of Jesus' Mission is to convert the whole world to the Love of Jesus through the Powerful Devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus. To join the Army of the Face of Jesus is very easy and very powerful! The short prayers only take 3 minutes a day and a little longer on Sundays and the promises for those with a Holy Face devotion are not to be missed.
PROMISES OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
Revelations to Sr. Mary of St. Peter,
1. By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.
2. By My Holy Face, they will work wonders, appease the anger of God and draw down mercy on sinners.
3. All those who honor My Face in a spirit of reparation will by so doing perform the office of the pious Veronica.
4. According to the care they take in making reparation to My Face disfigured by blasphemers, so will I take care of their souls which have been disfigured by sin. My Face is the Seal of the Divinity, which has the virtue of reproducing in souls the image of God.
5. Those who by words, prayers or writings defend My cause in the Work of Reparation, especially My priests, I will defend before My Father, and will give them My Kingdom.
6. As in a kingdom they can procure all that is desired with a coin stamped with the King's effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven they will obtain all they desire with the precious coin of My Holy Face.
7. Those who on earth contemplate the wounds of My Face shall in Heaven behold it radiant with glory.
8. They will receive in their souls a bright and constant irradiation of My Divinity, that by their likeness to My Face they shall shine with particular splendor in Heaven.
9. I will defend them, I will preserve them and I assure them of Final Perseverance.
"Devotion to the Holy Face….is of such central importance and so vital for us that we cannot live without it.”~Mother Marie Douleurs
"I am convinced that one of the most important tasks of the Church is to make the West rediscover the radiant face of Jesus."~Cardinal Sarah
TO JOIN THE ARMY OF THE FACE OF JESUS
First: Pray a short set of prayers once a day:
Mary Our Mother, in a unique way the Holy Face of Jesus belongs to you, please replace our faces disfigured by sin with the Most Holy Face of Jesus, so that we may present ourselves before God the Father worthily. Our Lady place yourself at the head of this holy army, you are the General of the armies of the Lord, more terrible than an army set in battle array!
Jesus, you have said that every time that we present your Face to Our Father, your mouth will demand Mercy. We need your Mercy more than ever!
Unleash your Mercy on the Whole World! Unleash Heaven with all the Angels and Saints to defend us in our battles against the Evil One! Oh God! Our Protector! Look upon us, and cast thine eyes on the Face of thy Christ! ETERNAL FATHER, we offer You the Holy Face of Jesus, covered with blood, sweat, dust, tears and spit, and swollen shut right eye in reparation for the crimes of communists, blasphemers, and for the profaners of the Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday. Our Savior Jesus promised that all the affairs of our household will be settled, and that nothing whatsoever will be refused to us, we now come before Your throne to ask for all our members' intentions and mine (Your Intentions), and the healing, conversion, and salvation of the whole world and that the whole world joins us. We ask this all in the Most Holy Name of Jesus. 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
One Our Father, One Hail Mary, One Glory Be.
Second: Put on the Lord Jesus Christ~Romans 13:14
I place My Holy Face in your hands that you may offer it unceasingly to My Father~Jesus to Sr. Marie Peter
Anytime you pray you can renew your prayers with a wink of the right eye. This eye was shut during the beating Christ took during His Passion and now you close that eye to remind the Father that you are wearing the Holy Face of Jesus. Thus, whenever you pray you go before the Father with the Power and Majesty of the Holy Face of Jesus over your face. God the Father can refuse you nothing when He sees the Face of His Beloved Son. So through praying with the Right eye closed from time to time (not while driving...) you remind yourself and God the Father that you are in the Army of the Face of Jesus!
Third: Carry a Holy Face Reparation Cross with the words, “Blessed be the Name of God,” and on the reverse “Begone, Satan.” To all those wearing this holy cross Our Lord promised a special resourcefulness to conquer the demon of blasphemy, adding that every time one hears a curse, he should repeat the words inscribed on the cross to overcome the evil one and render glory to God.
Fourth: Pray the Reparations Prayers on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation
PRAYERS OF REPARATION
TO THE HOLY FACE OF JESUS,
as requested by Our Lord Jesus Christ preferably before the Blessed Sacrament or before the picture of the Holy Face.
Dear Lord, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, I (we) offer Thee these prayers in reparation for the sins which offend God the most in these modern times – the sins of BLASPHEMY and the PROFANATION OF SUNDAY and Thy Holy Days of Obligation:

O Lord, show us Thy Face, and we shall be saved!
PRAYER TO OFFER THE HOLY FACE OF JESUS TO GOD THE FATHER TO APPEASE HIS JUSTICE AND DRAW DOWN MERCY UPON US
Almighty and Eternal Father, since it has pleased Our Divine Savior to reveal to mankind in modern times the power residing in His Holy Face, we now avail ourselves of this Treasure in our great need. Since Our Savior Himself promised that by offering to Thee His Holy Face disfigured in the Passion we can procure the settlement of all the affairs of our household, and that nothing will be refused to us, we now come before Thy throne.
Eternal Father, turn away Thine angry gaze from our guilty people whose face has become unsightly in Thine eyes. Look instead upon the Face of Thy Beloved Son; for this is the Face of Him in whom Thou art well pleased. We now offer Thee His Holy Face covered with blood, sweat, dust, spittle and shame, in reparation for the worst crimes of our age, which are atheism, blasphemy, and the desecration of Thy holy days. We thus hope to appease Thine anger justly provoked against us. The All-Merciful Advocate opens His mouth to plead our cause; listen to His cries, behold His tears, O God, and through the merits of His Holy Face hearken to Him when He intercedes for us poor miserable sinners.
“Let us pray to St. Michael, who always defeats the devil”~Pope Francis
Anyone who has a devotion to Saint Michael should become one of Saint Michael’s Warriors where we pray powerful prayers to call down the protection of Saint Michael everyday and spread his devotion in anyway we can. Saint Michael is God’s Greatest Angel for he always gave God the Glory and his name means “Who is Like God” and his mission is to defend God’s People.

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him we humbly pray and do thou O prince of the heavenly host by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
Saint Michael, God's Greatest Angel, you gave God the glory, God gave you the power to defeat our enemies, especially Satan. Please place all the Warriors' petitions and mine (State your petition) before the throne of God and intercede for us. Saint Michael rise with your legion of angels and defend your Warriors and pray that the whole world joins us.
and Throughout the day whenever you feel the need for even more protection you can pray this short prayer.
Saint Michael, God’s Greatest Angel, rise with your legion of angels and defend your Warriors!
Also carry with you a medal of Saint Michael with you as it is a silent prayer to him throughout the day for his special protection! Here is Saint Michael's Ultimate Decade Rosary for Protection:
Here are two stories of Saint Michael’s protection:
SAINT MICHAEL SAVES A MARINE IN AFGANISTAN
"But next to him was Cpl. Christopher Ahrens, who quietly mentioned that two bullets had grazed his helmet the day the Marines attacked Marjah. The same thing, he said, happened to him three times in firefights in Iraq. Cpl. Ahrens, 26, from Havre de Grace, Md., lifted the camouflaged cloth cover on his helmet, exposing the holes where the bullets had entered and exited. He turned it over to display the picture card tucked inside, depicting Michael the Archangel stamping on Lucifer's head. "I don't need luck," he said."
From the article in Wall Street Journal:
You do not need luck, you need the protection of God's Greatest Angel.
Here is a Story of a Medal of Honor Recipient and Navy Seal:
The official citation reads:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as a Hostage Rescue Force Team Member in Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM on 8-9 December 2012. As the rescue force approached the target building, an enemy sentry detected them and darted inside to alert his fellow captors. The sentry quickly reemerged, and the lead assaulter attempted to neutralize him. Chief Byers, with his team, sprinted to the door of the target building. As the primary breacher, Chief Byers stood in the doorway fully exposed to the enemy fire while ripping down six layers of heavy blankets fastened to the inside ceiling and walls to clear a path for the rescue force. The first assaulter pushed his way through the blankets, and was mortally wounded by enemy small arms fire from within.
Chief Byers, completely aware of the imminent threat, fearlessly rushed into the room and engaged an enemy guard aiming an AK-47 at him. He then tackled another adult male who had darted towards the corner of the room. During the ensuing hand-to-hand struggle, Chief Byers confirmed the man was not the hostage and engaged him. As the other rescue team members called out to the hostage, Chief Byers heard a voice respond in English and raced toward it. He jumped atop the American hostage and shielded him from the high volume of fire within the small room. While covering the hostage with his body, Chief Byers immobilized another guard with his bare hands, and restrained the guard until a teammate could eliminate him.
His bold and decisive actions under fire saved the lives of the hostage and several of his teammates. By his undaunted courage, intrepid fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of near-certain death, Chief Petty Officer Byers reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
His own words at the Medal of Honor acceptance speech:
On my first deployment to Iraq some eleven years ago, I arrived in country and I saw another SEAL standing there with a St. Michael the Archangel patch on his shoulder. I’m not sure what drew me to it, but I walked up to him and asked him if I could have it. He was leaving the combat zone and made it through a safe deployment, so he was absolutely willing to give it to me. He handed it to me without hesitation. I’ve worn that patch on my kit on every single mission I’ve ever been a part of, and I prayed the St. Michael prayer while moving in the toughest missions I faced. And it does start by saying, “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle and be our protection.
The Dolorians pray a set of short prayers that take only 2 minutes a day to pray and there are so many promises that they obtain through prayers plus each member prays for each other as well so that union of prayer also obtains even more graces as the weak are upheld by the strong members. Through the graces of these prayers and through spreading the message of the Dolorians may all our members obtain happiness in this life and for eternity afterwards.
The main prayer of the Dolorian is 7 Hail Mary's prayed while meditating on the Seven Dolors of Mary.
Our Lady directly reveals the amazing graces granted by her Son for all those who daily pray 7 Hail Mary's(One for each Dolor) while meditating on her 7 dolors and tears: She said that she will:
1. "She will grant peace to our families."
2. "We will be enlightened about the Divine Mysteries."
3. "She will console us in our pains and She will accompany us in our work."
4. "She will give us as much as we ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of her Divine Son or the sanctification of our souls."
5. "She will defend us in our spiritual battles with the infernal enemy and She will protect us at every instant of our lives."
6. "She will visibly help us at the moment of our death—we will see the face of our mother."
7. "She has obtained this grace from her divine Son, that those who propagate this devotion to her tears and dolors will be taken directly from this earthly life to eternal happiness, since all their sins will be forgiven and my Son will be their eternal consolation and joy."
The purpose of the Dolorians is to promote union with the sufferings of Christ through union with the special suffering that Our Lady endured because she was the Mother of God. By uniting ourselves with both the Passion of Christ and His holy Mother, we enter into Jesus' Heart and honor Him greatly; He is more honored because we have so honored His Mother. Jesus Christ Himself revealed to the Blessed Veronica da Binasco, that He is, as it were, more pleased in seeing His Mother compassionated than Himself; for thus He addressed her: "My daughter, tears shed for My Passion are dear to Me; but as I love My Mother Mary with an immense love, the meditation of the torments which she endured at My death is even more agreeable to Me."
Our Lord also had revealed to St. Bridget in another part of Revelations: "My Mother and I saved man as with one heart only, I by suffering in my Heart and my flesh, she by the sorrow and love of her heart."
So great a love on the part of Mary deserves our gratitude, and that gratitude should be shown by at least meditating upon and pitying her in her sorrow. But she complained to Saint Bridget that very few did so, and that the greater part of the world lived in forgetfulness of them: "I look around at all who are on earth, to see if by chance there are any who pity me, and meditate upon my sorrows; and I find that there are very few. Therefore, my daughter, though I am forgotten by many, at least do thou not forget me; consider my anguish, and imitate, as far as thou canst, my grief."
So Resolve today to spend at least two minutes a day meditating on the 7 Dolors and join the Dolorians where we pray these everyday together throughout the world to obtain grace for ourselves and all of our members each day.
The Dolorian Prayer (Prayed Daily)
Our Sorrowful Mother we come before you with prayers for all the Dolorians to receive the graces you have promised to obtain from your Divine Son, Jesus. Especially the Grace of Peace in our Families, to console us in our pains, accompany us in our work, defend us in our spiritual battles, and protect us at every instant of our lives. Also you have said to give us whatsoever we ask for as long as it does not oppose the adorable will of your Divine Son or the sanctification of our souls, so behold we now ask you for all the Dolorians intentions and Mine (Your Intentions) and that the whole world becomes Dolorians. We ask this all through Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen

I use this Screen Background on my computer at work so that I have a triple blessing and huge graces while I am writing this for you and doing my daily work. I have the screen background above and I make my usable portion such as when I write this below it. So I come up to Jesus' chin with my open links. Above me, Lord and Saviour is looking down upon me in four different forms and one of Our Lady. I have enclosed the promises of those who look upon the images below. You are welcome to copy the image and use on your own screen background. God Bless you, your brother, Brian
DIVINE MERCY IMAGE PROMISES
Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You. I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over [its] enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I Myself will defend it as My own glory (Diary, 47, 48). I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the signature: Jesus, I trust in You (327). I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and [then] throughout the world (47).
The two rays denote Blood and Water. The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of My tender mercy when My agonized Heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. Happy is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him (299). By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works (742).
HOLY FACE PROMISES
"Every time My Face is contemplated I will pour out My Love into the hearts of those persons, and by means of My Holy Face the salvation of many souls will be obtained."
(Our Lord Jesus Christ to Sister Pierina)
Our Lord told Sister Mary of Saint Peter,
1. All those who honor My Face in a spirit of reparation will by so doing perform the office of the pious Veronica. According to the care they take in making reparation to My Face, disfigured by blasphemers, so will I take care of their souls which have been disfigured by sin. My Face is the seal of the Divinity, which has the virtue of reproducing in souls the image of God.
2. Those who by words, prayers or writing defend My cause in this Work of Reparation I will defend before My Father, and will give them My Kingdom.
3. By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.
4. By My Holy Face, they will work wonders, appease the anger of God, and draw down mercy on sinners.
5. As in a kingdom they can procure all that is desired with a coin stamped with the King's effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven they will obtain all they desire with the precious coin of My Holy Face.
6.Those who on earth contemplate the wounds of My Face shall in Heaven behold it radiant with glory.
7.They will receive in their souls a bright and constant irradiation of My Divinity, that by their likeness to My Face they shall shine with particular splendor in Heaven.
8. I will defend them, I will preserve them and I assure them of Final Perseverance.
BLESSED SACRAMENT PROMISES
"Mostly [St.] Bernadette's thoughts were fixed beyond this earth. 'During her long nights,' reported Canon Perreau, 'she used to say the Rosary.' At other times she placed herself as it were in adoration before the Tabernacle. On her curtains had been fastened the picture of a monstrance. 'I am happy in my sleepless hours,' she confided to Mother Audidier, 'uniting myself with our Lord. One glance at this picture gives me the longing and strength to immolate myself, when I am feeling my loneliness and my pains.'"
- Saint Bernadette Soubirous, Francis Trochu
"Wherever I may be I will often think of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. I will fill my thoughts with the holy tabernacle (even when I happen to wake up at night) adoring Him from where I am, calling to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, offering up to Him the action in which I am engaged. I will install one telegraph cable from my study to the Church, another from my bedroom, and a third from our refectory; and as often as I can, I will send messages of love to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."
- Andrew Beltrami
"The daily adoration or visit to the Blessed Sacrament is the practice which is the fountainhead of all devotional works"
- Pope St. Pius X
When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then, when you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now."
- Mother Teresa of Calcutta
"A thousand years of enjoying human glory is not worth even an hour spent sweetly communing with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."
- St. Padre Pio
"Do you want the Lord to give you many graces? Visit Him often. Do you want Him to give you few graces? Visit Him rarely. Do you want the devil to attack you? Visit Jesus rarely in the Blessed Sacrament. Do you want him to flee from you? Visit Jesus often. Do you want to conquer the devil? Take refuge often at the feet of Jesus. Do you want to be conquered by the devil? Forget about visiting Jesus. My dear ones, the visit to the Blessed Sacrament is an extremely necessary way to conquer the devil. Therefore, go often to visit Jesus and the devil will not come out victorious against you."
- St. John Bosco
"Certainly amongst all devotions, after that of receiving the sacraments, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament holds first place, is most pleasing to God, and most useful to ourselves. Do not then, O devout soul, refuse to begin this devotion; and forsaking the conversation of men, dwell each day, from this time forward, for at least half or quarter of an hour, in some church, in the presence of Jesus Christ under the sacramental species. Taste and see how sweet is the Lord."
- St. Alphonsus Liguori
"When I stand up to talk, people listen to me; they will follow what I have to say. Is it any power of mine? Of course not. St. Paul says, 'What have you that you have not received and you who have received, why do you glory as if you had not?' But the secret of my power is that I have never in fifty-five years missed spending an hour in the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. That's where the power comes from. That's where sermons are born. That's where every good thought is conceived."
- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
"Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration with exposition needs a great push. People ask me: 'What will convert America and save the world?' My answer is prayer. What we need is for every parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in holy hours of prayer."
- Mother Teresa of Calcutta
"I encourage Christians regularly to visit Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament, for we are all called to abide in the presence of God."
- Pope John Paul II
"The faith I have when I am in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament is so strong that I find it impossible to express what I feel….When the time comes to leave I must force myself to overcome the inclination to prolong my stay with Jesus."
- St. Anthony Mary Claret
"From the Eucharist comes strength to live the Christian life and zeal to share that life with others."
- Pope John Paul II
"I understand that, each time we contemplate with desire and devotion the Host in which is hidden Christ's Eucharistic Body, we increase our merits in heaven and secure special joys to be ours later in the beatific vision of God."
- St. Gertrude
"The Eucharist bathes the tormented soul in light and love. Then the soul appreciates these words, 'Come all you who are sick, I will restore your health.'"
- St. Bernadette Soubirous
“Yes, I am happy, perfectly happy; and do you wish to know where I find true happiness? At the feet of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,"
- Augustine Maria of the Blessed Sacrament, Herman Cohen
"What happiness do we not feel in the presence of God, when we find ourselves alone at his feet, before the holy tabernacle! … 'Come, my soul, redouble your ardor! You are here alone to adore your God! His look rests on you alone!' Ah! if we only had the angels' eyes! Seeing our Lord Jesus Christ here, on that altar, and looking at us, how we should love him! We should want to stay always at his feet; it would be a foretaste of heaven; everything else would become insipid to us."
- St. John Vianney
"I have a burning thirst to be honored by men in the Blessed Sacrament, and I find hardly anyone who strives, according to My desire, to allay this thirst by making Me some return of love."
- Words of Jesus to St. Margaret Mary
The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time that you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in heaven, and will help bring about an everlasting peace on earth."
- Mother Teresa of Calcutta
"The greatest love story of all time is contained in a tiny white Host."
- Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
The Child Jesus
"I keep company with you as a child to teach you humility and simplicity"~Jesus to St. Faustina
"Jesus has chosen to show me the only way that leads to the divine furnace of love; it is the way of childlike self-surrender, the way of a child who sleeps, afraid of nothing in its Father's arms."~St. Therese
"I saw Our Lady with the Infant Jesus ... . The most holy Mother said to me, 'Take my Dearest Treasure,' and she handed me the Infant Jesus. When I took the Infant Jesus in my arms, the Mother of God and Saint Joseph disappeared. I was left alone with the Infant Jesus"~St. Faustina
"I saw the Infant Jesus near my kneeler. He appeared to be about one year old, and He asked me to take Him in my arms. When I did take Him in my arms, He cuddled up close to my bosom and said, "It is good for Me to be close to your heart. ... Because I want to teach you spiritual childhood. I want you to be very little, because when you are little, I carry you close to My Heart, just as you are holding Me close to your heart right now"~St. Faustina
"I was left alone with the Infant Jesus who stretched out His little hands to me, and I understood that I was to take Him in my arms. Jesus pressed His head against my heart and gave me to know, by His profound gaze, how good He found it to be next to my heart"~St. Faustina
"If the Redeemer had come to be feared and respected by men, He would have come as a full-grown man and with royal dignity: but because He came to gain our love, He chose to come and to show Himself as an infant and the poorest of infants, born in a cold stable between two animals, laid in a manger on straw, without clothing or fire to warm His shivering limbs: "Thus would He be born, who willed to be loved and not feared."~St. Alphonsus Ligouri
“Ask all that you desire through the merits of My Holy Infancy, Nothing will be refused."
(Revealed to Ven. Sister Margaret of the Blessed Sacrament)
Saint Thérèse placed an Infant statue in the novitiate at Lisieux when she had charge of the novices, because she knew how many blessings the Divine Child brought to the Carmelite novices in Prague when it was placed in their midst. The same statue still stands in the cloister at Lisieux.
Saint Rose of Lima had great compassion towards her neighbor. She knew that by showing compassion to the sick , she was showing compassion to God. So, a room in her house known as “The Infirmary” was set aside for her to care for the poor and sick of Peru. Everyone could count on Rose charity, she did not refuse to help anyone, “no matter how sickening a disease might be.” Many people reported that they had been cured at “The Infirmary” especially after her little statue of the Child Jesus had touched them. Rose herself called the little statue, “The Little Doctor.”
Our Lady's Image from the Pieta Booklet
Mary is the mirror in which we should ever watch ourselves; the Mother whom her children ought to resemble more and more. ~Bl Titus Brandsma
This picture of Our Lady was drawn by a mystic in Italy. Her hand was guided by Our Lady.
There is a special blessing given each day to the person who carries it and another blessing given each time one looks at it with love.
