Daily Prayer - Your Beloved Son

Eternal Father, 
turn away Your angry gaze from our guilty people 
whose face has become unsightly in Your eyes. 
Look instead upon the Face of Your Beloved Son, 
for this is the Face of Him 
in Whom You are well pleased. 
We now offer You this Holy Face, 
covered with shame and disfigured by bloody bruises 
in reparation for the crimes of our age 
in order to appease Your anger, 
justly provoked against us. 
Because Your Divine Son, our Redeemer, 
has taken upon His Head all the sins of His members, 
that they might be spared, 
we now beg of You, Eternal Father, 
to grant us mercy.

Amen
