SHROVE TUESDAY MASS
TUESDAY MARCH 5
Venerable Pope Pius XII granted that the Feast of the Holy Face of Jesus be observed on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday. In doing this, he fulfilled the desire of Our Lord that His sorrowful Holy Face be contemplated in reparation for our sins.
The bloodied, bruised, disfigured face of Jesus was imprinted on a veil as St. Veronica comforted Christ by wiping His face on the road to Calvary. The original veil is kept at St. Peter’s Basilica and is displayed every Passion Sunday. The image of the face on the Shroud of Turin also provides another opportunity of veneration of the Holy Face.
