Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus

Sister Maria Pierina di Michaeli a nun who died in 1945, was urged in many visions by the Blessed Mother and Jesus Himself to spread the devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus, in reparation for the many insults that Jesus suffered in His Passion, such as to be slapped, spit upon and kissed by Judas, as well as now being dishonored in many ways in the Blessed Sacrament by neglect, sacrileges and profanations.

She was given a medal, which on one side, bore a replica of the Holy Shroud of Turin and the inscription, "Illumina, Domine, vultum tuum super nos." (Psalm 66: "May, O Lord, the light of Thy countenance shine upon us"). On the reverse, was a radiant host with the words, "Mane nobiscum, Domine." ("Stay with us, O Lord").

On April 17th , 1958, His Holiness Pope Pius XII confirmed the Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus on Shrove Tuesday (Tuesday before Ash Wednesday)
