The Sixth Station

Veronica Wipes The Face Of Jesus

We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You, because by Your holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.



His look was marred beyond that of man, and His appearance beyond that of mortals. (Isaiah 52, 14)

"Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father." (John 14, 9)

He spoke to us through a Son, whom He made heir to all things and through Whom He created the universe, Who is the refulgence of His glory, the very imprint of His being. (Hebrews 1.3)



Consider how the holy woman named Veronica, seeing Jesus so afflicted, and His face bathed in sweat and blood, presented Him with a towel, with which He wiped His adorable face, leaving on it the impression of His holy countenance.



My beloved Jesus, Your face was beautiful before, but in this journey it has lost all its beauty, and wounds and blood have disfigured it. My soul also was once beautiful, when it received Your grace in Baptism; but I have disfigured it since by my sins; You alone, my Redeemer, can restore it to its former beauty. Do this by Your Passion. O Jesus, I repent of having offended You. Never permit me to offend You again. Grant that I may love you always; and then do with me what You will.

Our Father
Hail Mary
Glory Be
