"As in a kingdom one can procure all

Carmelite Mystic (d. 1848)
Illumina Domine Vultum

Mane Nobiscum Domine
The Holy Face Medal, as it came to be called, spread rapidly with innumerable favors being attributed to its pious use. Through Madre Pierina, Jesus conveyed the following promise to all peoples who will exercise this devotion:
Madre Pierina was declared a Blessed by the Catholic Church on May 30, 2010, sparking renewed interest in her life and work. The message entrusted to her by Heaven has inspired this author to wear the Holy Face Medal (for over 15 years now, as of this writing) and it has proven to be a source of benediction and spiritual comfort for me. I encourage all Catholics (and even non-Catholics) to wear it, too.

I close this post by sharing more promises attached to this medal and devotion. The following were given by Our Lady during one of her private apparitions to Bl. Maria Pierina de Micheli.
