The Little Sachet or The Little Gospel
From the Manual of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Face, by The Rev. Abbe Janvier
“This devotional object was composed by Sister St. Pierre after a special communication from our Lord. It consists of a leaflet on which is printed the gospel of the Circumcision, which is short, and in which is made mention of the Name of Jesus, given to the Saviour. On the same leaflet is engraved, at the top of it, the figure of the Divine Child and the initials of His adorable Name, and below the Gospel, some pious invocations calculated
to excite confidence in the Name of Jesus, together with the lines:
When Jesus was named,
Vanquished Satan was disarmed.
The leaflet is folded in two and enclosed in a little piece of stuff, on which is embroidered a Cross with the Sacred Heart, so that it resembles a medal suitable to be worn on the person.
There is no other blessing needed, in order to receive it, that that which is attached to the Holy Name of Jesus. In honour of the five letters of this divine Name, and by virtue of the five wounds, our Lord has promised to grant special graces to those who shall embrace this devotion with faith and piety.
- To preserve them from thunder
- From the cunning and the malice of the devil
- From sudden and unprovided death
- To enable them to walk readily along the path of virtue
- To grant them final perseverance
Our Lord is pleased to manifest the power of His holy Name by many other spiritual and temporal graces; conversions, cures, etc. The sachet is principally employed with success in the case of dying sinners.
This devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus is attached to the great work of the Reparation of blasphemies and to that of the Holy Face.”
