Chaplet of the Holy Face of Jesus Catholic Chaplet


Chapelet of the Holy Face of Jesus in Silver Leaf Jasper and bronze medals and crucifix.

Veneration of the Holy Face of Jesus has its beginning during the very passion of Our Lord, making it one of the oldest devotions in the Christian tradition. This devotion originated with the sacred image of Our Lord that miraculously appeared on St. Veronica's Veil

During the 1840’s in France, a Carmelite nun, Sr. Marie of St. Peter, received a series of revelations from Our Lord about a powerful devotion He wished to be established worldwide—the devotion to his Holy Face. This devotion is a devotion to Our Lord in reparation for the many blasphemies and outrages he endures and for the triumph of the Catholic Church over her enemies.

Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday) is the historic feast of the Holy Face of Jesus.

The Chaplet of the Holy Face is a chaplet of reparation for sins and is composed of a cross, 39 beads (6 large and 33 small), and a medal of the Holy Face.

The Cross calls to mind the mystery of our Redemption. The 33 small beads represent the 33 years of the mortal life of our Lord. The first 30 recall the 30 years of his private life, and are divided into 5 sets of 6 beads with the intention of honoring the 5 senses of touch, hearing, sight, smell and taste of Jesus, which have their seat principally in His Holy Face, and of rendering homage to all the sufferings which our Lord endured in His Face through each one of these senses. The last 3 small beads recall the 3 years of public life of our Savior and have for their object the honoring of all the wounds of His adorable Face. The Gloria is repeated 7 times in honor of the 7 last words of Jesus upon the Cross, and the 7 sorrows of the Immaculate Virgin.

First set of 6 beads: In honor of the sense of touch of our Lord

Second: In honor of the sense of hearing of our Lord

Third: In honor of the sense of sight of our Lord

Fourth: In honor of the sense of smell of our Lord

Fifth: In honor of the sense of taste of our Lord

Final 3 beads: In honor of our Lord's public life


On the Cross pray, "O God, come to my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me," followed by the Glory Be.

On each large bead pray, "My Jesus Mercy!" followed by one Glory Be.

On each small bead pray, "Arise, O Lord, and let Thy enemies be scattered, and let all that hate Thee flee from before Thy Face.”

On the Holy Face medal say, "God, our Protector, look on us, and cast thine eyes upon the Face of Thy Christ.” Amen.
