The Holy Face of Jesus

Mother Agnes was very devoted to the Holy Face.

Mother Genevieve of St.Teresa of Jesus, foundress of the Lisieux Carmel, brought devotion to the Holy Face upon the foundation of the Nun’s Convent. Devotion to the Holy Face sprang up in the 19th century, following certain revelations made to Sister  Marie of St.Pierre in the Tours Carmel.  Mother Agnes taught this devotion to Sister Therese of the Child Jesus.  Upon receiving the Carmelite Habit, January 10, 1889, Sister Therese added the Holy Face to her name: Sister Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face.     Find more information about the Holy Face of Jesus on the internet. May Mother Agnes of Jesus inspire us to be devoted to the suffering image of the Holy face of Jesus
