"By my Holy Face, the world will be saved.” - Jesus to Blessed Maria Concetta Pantusa

Hello Everyone,

I have been eager to finalize the artwork for the production of this medal for almost two years but I couldn’t find myself satisfied with the sketch of His defiled Holy Countenance.  After entreating Him with prayerful supplications to guide me on the drawing, it’s finally completed. This is my most treasured work, I am humbled. Thanksgiving and glory to God!

This devotion is very dear to my heart and the timing for the completion of this project could not be better. Those of you who are subscribers, perhaps recall receiving the “PROMULGATION OF THE HOLY FACE OF JESUS” newsletter just prior to Shrove Tuesday 2021. This year, the novena to the Holy Face of Jesus begins on February 20th.

Ultimately, I wish for the Holy Face devotion to grow; our love for Jesus Christ to radiate and impart on to others. May the Lord grant that His Holy Face medal shine and touch all those who gaze upon it and wear it.

Lastly, I pray that this devotion inspires you as much as it inspires me. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you will join me in promoting this holy devotion.

Pax et Bonum, Siggy

The following I believe offers a thorough historical account of Our Lord's wish for the Holy Face Promulgation.  BEGINNING ACCOUNT OF HOLY FACE - WHAT IS THE HOLY FACE & HISTORY OF APPARITIONS FROM JESUS CHRIST AND BLESSED MOTHER ON THE HOLY FACE




Our Blessed Mother appeared to Blessed Mother Maria Pierina de Micheli saying:


The medal is an armor of defense, a shield of strength, a token of the love and mercy which Jesus wishes to give to the world in these times of lust and hatred against God and His Church, aggravated by:

  1. Diabolic nets thrown to wrench the faith from hearts
  2. Evils abounding
  3. True apostles being few

The remedy is the Holy Face of Jesus.

All who wear a medal like this and make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament every Tuesday in order to repair the outrages which the Face of Son Jesus received during His Passion and everyday in the Holy Eucharist:

  1. will be strengthened in faith
  2. prompt to depend it
  3. overcome all difficulties internal and external
  4. will have a peaceful death under the loving gaze of My Divine Son.


Promises to Sr. Marie de St. Pierre, for our own sanctification and that of all mankind.

Promises of Our Lord Jesus Christ to those who practice devotion to his Holy Face


  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 upon 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 radiation 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.

Promises and Revelations and Promises of our Lord to Blessed Maria Pierina de Micheli

  3. “Contemplate My Face and you will enter into My Heart’s abysses of sorrow.”
  4. “Every time that anyone gazes at My Face, I will pour My Love into hearts.”
  5. “And by means of the Holy Face, the salvation of many souls will be obtained.”
  6. “Offer My Holy Face without ceasing to the Eternal Father. With this offering, you will obtain salvation and sanctification of many souls. When henceforth you offer it through My priests, they will perform miracles.”

  8. “I desire that My Face be honored by a special Feast on Quinquagesima Tuesday (Tuesday on the 5th week before Easter Sunday), a feast preceded by a Novena, in which all the faithful will make reparation to Me, thus uniting and participating in my grief.
