Shrove Tuesday, Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus

"Jesus, Your ineffable image is the star which guides my steps. Ah, You know, Your sweet Face is for me Heaven on earth. My love discovers the charms of Your Face adorned with tears. I smile through my own tears when I contemplate Your sorrows."

—St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face
August 1895, in her "Canticle to the Holy Face"
