The Holy Face

This poem was written a few days ago. I was inspired by the Holy Face devotion, which I learned about a few weeks ago. Once I started praying the Holy Face chaplet, I pretty much fell in love with it. Wasn’t intending to share this poem, but the MVB prompt today is Face, so it is perfect timing.


Protect us from every demon,
Attacking distressingly often,
Speak Thy word and show Thy face

— Let them that hate Thee flee –

Yet with Thine arms always embrace
The one who needs protection,
Until her own resurrection
