Stations of the Cross. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus.
Station number six.
The sixth Station represents the place where the pious Veronica, compassionating our agonizing Redeemer, beholding His sacred face livid with blows and covered with blood, dirt and sweat, presents a veil, with which Jesus wipes His adorable face, living on it the impression of His holy countenance. There was so little she could do for Him, but she did it, closing her eyes to the scorn of the crowd. She did it with love and received in return a priceless image of our Lord. The cloth she used is said to have preserved the imprint of Christ's features. There is, at Saint Peter's in Rome, a cloth venerated as the original veil of Veronica, but the features of the image on it are very difficult to distinguish, and it is impossible to judge its authenticity. Her name is not important to us: the incident is. It is quite possible that a compassionate woman wiped the face of our suffering Lord, and Christians do well to ponder her action.
