For if any are hearers of the word and not doers, they are like those who look at themselves in a mirror; for they look at themselves and, on going away, immediately forget what they were like. James 1:23-24
I have been reading a book called "The Secret of the Holy Face, The Devotion Destined to Save Society", by Father Lawrence Daniel Carney III. The author points out how this devotion to the Holy Face is meant to combat communism. All these years the Lord drew me to this devotion, even using tragedy of my friend's murder to bring goodness and my website named Veil of Veronica. I thought, “of course”. This is the devotion to usher in the Divine Will and combat what’s being thrust upon the world. The movement of sexual perversion and identifying yourself that way, coupled with climate change, the nebulous blob that seems to seek that all humans not be fruitful and multiply, defying the command of God for the sake of the planet, and we find ourselves on the brink of a new world without God.
This all too imminent danger, Venerable Brethren, as you have already surmised, is bolshevistic and atheistic Communism, which aims at upsetting the social order and at undermining the very foundations of Christian civilization – DIVINI REDEMPTORIS ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI

Without God and doing what he asks, we forget what we look like. His Holy Face brings us back to relationship, with Him and with one another.
To be clear, I do not condemn people who struggle with same sex attraction, or even those who don’t know their proper identity, after all, their struggles are real. Therein lies the brilliance of this God ordained devotion. When you look at the Holy Face of Jesus you can see that you are in relationship with a real person. When your loved one stands in front of you struggling, you can see you are in relationship with a real person. You can pray and guide a real person to their true identity. The demonic driven agenda, however, you must oppose on all fronts. Our true identity lies in the fact that we are children of God. Anything else is perversion. You can label yourself whatever you want, but truth is a person and that person is Jesus Christ, and until you know Him you actually know nothing, especially not yourself.
Additionally, I actually do believe our environment is poisoned, but not from the CO2 we breathe out, rather, it is from the sin of our hardened hearts that we breathe out. A pure heart that loves God has a God who can pour his power into weakness and make the environment their dominion. A sinful unrepentant hard heart reaps what it sows, and the environment around them becomes desolate. Again, a mere look at the Face of God and you will see back a true identity and a Kingdom of heaven; a Kingdom of Love where all of creation shouts for joy.
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar and all that fills it;
let the field exult and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he is coming,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness
and the peoples with his truth. Psalm 96:11-13
It is time to look at His Holy Face. It is time to see that He is the one who calms and keeps the storm. Promulgate this devotion. Jesus Himself left us His face during the Passion with the Veil of Veronica, in His death on the Shroud of Turin, and in His resurrection on the Veil of Manopello.
By looking at His Face we can see his Sacred Heart, we can see the love in His heart for us. We can ask Him to help us love others as He loves us. It is this relational knowing of God that can crush communism. Place His Face where all can see.
And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 3:18
