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.
