Prayer to the Divine Face

O Divine Face, in which is hidden the awe-inspiring majesty of God making it possible for man to behold God in his fellow man; O Divine Face, radiating the ineffable love, friendliness, encouragement and compassion of God for man his most favoured creature; O Divine Face, you that willingly and resolutely set yourself to accept the ignominy of man's hatred for his fellow man and the spittle of spite and envy of the failure against the successful winner of the hearts of men by natural goodness; You are the truth that man should experience God in his fellow man.
Teach us the true devotion to you so that possessed by your spirit and imbued with your truth we may ourselves be your genuine witnesses, giving the honour that is due to God who in his wisdom has conceded himself to be seen and experienced as one of us.
We wish to welcome and venerate you in our neighbour. We wish to make up even if in the smallest way for the mistreatments you receive daily in and from those you love so dearly. Receive and accept us O Evidence of God's companionship. Accompany our endeavours with you favours.
Amen

A few typing errors in the prayer to the Divine Face
line 11 "yuor" change to "your"
line 16 "adn" change to "and"
