Holy Face of Jesus

Once again this year I am celebrating Mass for the Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus, which falls on Shrove Tuesday.  There will be Low Mass at 12 noon. Not such a well-known devotion in this day and age but obviously an ancient one, as Veronica's veil was kept intact from the time of Our Lord's Passion. St Therese of Lisieux was a great devotee.  Click here for devotional items and books about this Feast.

Of course this week also sees the start of Lent and there will be Mass with the Distribution of Ashes at 9.30am and at 7pm.

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.
