6th Station – Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

The following excerpts come from The Way of the Cross written by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen and published by Our Sunday Visitor (1982).

VERONICA WIPES THE FACE OF JESUS

“…as if to remind us that the likeness between Christ and us is most perfect in suffering and sorrow, the Divine Savior, on His way to Calvary, left the impression of that divinely sorrowful face. … There is only one way we can become exactly like Him, and that is by suffering.

O Lord, … grant that, like Veronica, I may brave all human respect in order to carry your image about with me, not on a veil but on the tablet of my heart.  Bestow on me the grace to so much like you that others among whom I live may see something of you in me…”

    Thanks much for your blog on the Stations of the Cross… you might be interested to see what a group of young Christians here in Manila came up with – it’s an installation art exhibit of the SotC. It’s in the middle of a garden next to a mall in Manila – I have a blog with photos of each station plus some of my thoughts. If you have time, please check it out at http://adventuresofabeautyqueen.wordpress.com
    Have a meaningful Holy Week!!!
