A visit to the Blessed Sacrament on a Tuesday in a spirit of reparation to the Holy Face bestows particular graces.
Jesus appeared to Blessed Mother Maria Pierina de Micheli covered with blood and very sadly said to her:
"Do you see how I suffer? Yet, very few understand me. Those who say they love me are very ungrateful! I have given my heart as the sensible object of my great love to men and I give My Face as the sensible object of my sorrow for all the sins of men. I wish that it be venerated by a special feast on Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. I wish that the feast be preceded by a novena in which the faithful make reparation with me, joining together and sharing in my sorrow."
In 1939 Jesus said again:
"I wish that My Holy Face be honored in a particular manner on Tuesdays".
Our Lady said to Blessed Maria Pierina de Micheli
"A visit to the Blessed Sacrament every Tuesday in reparation for the outrages that the Holy Face of my Son Jesus received during His Passion and is still receiving in the Holy Eucharist every day,
- will be strengthened in the Faith, and will be made ready to defend it,
- will overcome all difficulties, internal and external
- and they will have a peaceful death under the loving gaze of my Divine Son"
Sr. Mary of St. Peter writes: “In the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, His adorable Face is more dazzling than the sun. He then once more promised me to imprint His Divine Likeness upon the souls of those who honour the features of His Face” (Autobiography p187)
St. Gaetana Catanoso (canonised by Pope Benedict XVI) said: "If we wish to adore the real Face of Jesus..., we can find it in the divine Eucharist, where with the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, the Face of Our Lord is hidden under the white veil of the Host".
Pope Benedict XVI stated we must allow ourselves be transformed by “the radiance of His Face.”
The Holy Father referred to that “face concealed in the Eucharistic signs.”
