Lord Jesus Christ,
your face is everywhere where suffering exists
and you await me to wipe away your blood and tears.
Every time I have the courage and compassion to wipe your suffering face,
your image and likeness will be imprinted on my soul.
I will be transformed, so that you will live and love in me.
Help me then to reveal your loving and beautiful face to others.
Help me to see you present in others. It is your face, Lord, that I seek.
