From THE MEDAL AND THE HOLY FACE, The Holy Face Association, Box 1, St.

Henri Station, Montreal Canada H4C 3J7. By sending a self-addressed

envelope to them, you can receive a religious medal which has an

interesting history.

Sister Pierina was a Roman Catholic nun who died in 1945. During her

lifetime, she was repeatedly urged by Mary and Jesus to spread the devotion

to the "Holy Face", in reparation for the many insults Jesus suffered in

His Passion, as well as the ways in which it is now being dishonored in the

Blessed Sacrament by neglect, sacrileges and profanations.

Sister Pierina was given a medal which on one side bore a replica of the

Holy Shroud, with an inscription in Latin that, translated, reads "May, O

Lord, the light of Thy countenance shine upon us."

After great difficulty, Sister Pierina obtained permission to have the

medal cast. The expense for this was met when she found on her desk an

envelope containing the exact amount of money that was needed. The devil is

supposed to have expressed his rage at this by burning pictures of the

Sacred Face, and beating Sister Pierina savagely.

The first medal to the Holy Face was offered to Pius XII, and now it has

spread over the world. It is said that no prisoner of war wearing this

badge of salvation has ever been executed. Jesus also is supposed to have

requested that a special feast be instituted to honor His Holy Face on

Shrove Tuesday.
