Jesus, covered in blood and much sadness, said to Mother Pierina: "See how much I suffer.
I am understood by so few. What ingratitude on the part of those who say that they love Me!
I have given My heart as a sensible object of My great love for man, and I give My Face as a sensible object of My sorrow for the sins of man.
I desire that it be honored by a special feast on Shrove Tuesday.
The feast will be preceded by a novena, during which the faithful make reparation with Me, uniting themselves with My sorrow."

This year, the feast occurs on February 24th, 2009 (Shrove Tuesday).
