Sheriffs, German Protests & Holy Face

Riverside Sheriff Sets the Tune

Hello TIA,

Please let your audience know that several sheriffs in the U.S. have refused to enforce the dictatorial norms of State governors in their respective counties affirming that those measures are against the Constitution.

Watch a video of Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco who went public in his position. He refuses to consider the owners of small businesses as criminals or to release the inmates of the county jails. He also states that to not allow business owners to open their stores is against the Constitution.

It is a very encouraging position. The video does not take more than 5 minutes, here.

Also two sheriffs of Arizona did the same, here.

People should follow these examples.



Masks in Sweden

Dear TIA,

Please, read this article on how the Swedish dealt with the problem of using masks to avoid contamination.

It sounds very reasonable to me and what we should have done.

     In Jesus and Mary,

Holy Face Billboard Project

Dear TIA,

Great News! The Holy Face billboard is up! We would love to see this duplicated in other cities and states so please share with your Catholic family and friends! (We would be happy to help.)

If you're in San Diego, we hope you will do a drive-by. It is on the left side as you head EAST out of OB on Sunset Cliffs Blvd. Past Voltaire and right past the Jack in the Box. (It's also providentially right next to a pot shop.)

Please pray that it touches many lives.


Holy Face Billboard - San Diego


The goal of this project is to silently and powerfully increase awareness of Jesus' presence in San Diego by having a billboard of the Holy Face of Our Lord from the Shroud of Turin.

Join us in promoting the Holy Face of Jesus in San Diego as it has been done in Ireland, Canada and South Carolina.

Ideally we would like to run this campaign as long as possible so we will change our target amount as we go along.

Donate here.

If you prefer to donate by check, please address it to EMSD - Ecclesia Militans San Diego - and send to:

9915 Dichondra Ct.
San Diego, CA 92131

Thank you and God bless.


Devotion to the Holy Face was revealed by Jesus to Sr. Marie of St. Peter (1816-1848) a Carmelite nun of Tours in France.

The primary purpose of the devotion is to make reparation for sins against the first three commandments:

Denial of God, Blasphemy, and the profanation of Sundays and Holy Days.

The devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus, based on the life and writings of Sr. Marie of St. Peter, was eventually approved by Pope Leo XIII in 1885 who established the devotion as an Arch-confraternity for the whole world.


The Promise given to Sr. Marie of St. Peter:

All those who honor My face in a spirit of reparation will by doing so perform the office of the pious Veronica. According to the care they take in making reparation to My Face, disfigured by blasphemers, so will I take care of their souls which have been disfigured by sin. My Face is the seal of the Divinity, which has the virtue of reproducing in souls the image of God.

Those who by words, prayers or writing defend My cause in this work of reparation I will defend before My Father, and will give them My Kingdom.

By offering My Face to My eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.

By My Holy Face, they will work wonders, appease the anger of God and draw down mercy on sinners.

As in a Kingdom they can procure all that is desired with a coin stamped with the Kings effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven they will obtain all they desire with the precious coin of my Holy Face.

Those who on earth contemplate the wounds of My Face shall in Heaven behold it radiant with glory.

They will receive in their souls a bright and constant irradiation of My Divinity, that by their likeness to My Face they shall shine with particular splendor in Heaven.

I will defend them, I will preserve them and I assure them of Final Perseverance.


In January 1849 Pope Pius IX had the relic of Veronica’s veil placed for public veneration in Rome.

During this time, the Divine Face appeared distinctly, as if living, and was illuminated by a soft light.

Reproductions of the veil were later printed, touched to the original and sent abroad for veneration.


The Holy Man of Tours - Leo Dupont

Leo Dupont heard of the reported visions of Jesus and Mary by the Carmelite nun Sister Marie of St Peter from 1844 to 1847. Based on this, Dupont started to burn a vigil lamp continuously before a picture of the Holy Face of Jesus based on the painted image on the Veil of Veronica. Dupont used that image because the existence of a clear image on the Shroud of Turin was not known to anyone at that time for the somewhat faded image of the face on the Shroud can not easily be seen with the naked eye and was only observed in May 1898 via the negative plate of Secondo Pia's first photograph. In 1851 Dupont formed the "Archconfraternity of the Holy Face" in Tours. He prayed for and promoted the case for a devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus for around 30 years.


Blessed Maria Pierina de Micheli & The Holy Face of Jesus Devotion & Medal

At the age of twelve, when she was in her Parish Church during the 3pm Good Friday service, she heard a Voice saying quite distinctly:

"No one gives me a kiss of love on My Face to make amends for the Kiss of Judas." In her childlike simplicity, she believed that the voice was heard by everyone and was pained to see that only the wounds were kissed but not the face. In her heart exclaiming, "Have patience, dear Jesus, I will give you a kiss of love", and when her turn came she lovingly and devoutly imprinted a kiss on His Face.

Mother Maria Pierina de Micheli obtained permission from her spiritual Director and although she did not have any financial means to get medals of the Holy Face made. She obtained the permission of the photographer Bruner to take copies of the Holy Shroud as reproduced by him, and she received the permission to do so by the Archdiocese of Milan on the August 9, 1940. Since then the devotion and the medal have been spread worldwide with much enthusiasm, accompanied all the while by wonderful graces, conversions and cures as a testament and heavenly sign of God's institution and approval of both.

This devotion to the Holy face of Jesus so inspired St Therese that she took the full title:

‘Sr. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face’.
