All Of This Is True – Saint Veronica

St. Veronica  - Bernardo Strozzi

Bernardo Strozzi

Saint Veronica is another saint whose feast is celebrated today. There is absolutely no scriptural evidence for her existence or for the miraculous appearance of Christ’s face on what became known as the Veil of Veronica. And?

 

From Pope Benedict XIV’s meditation and prayers during the Via Crucis at the Colosseum on March 24, 2005:

Lord, grant us restless hearts, hearts which seek your Face. Keep us from the blindness of heart which sees only the surface of things. Give us the simplicity and purity which allow us to recognize your presence in the world. When we are not able to accomplish great things, grant us the courage which is born of humility and goodness. Impress your Face on our hearts. May we encounter you along the way and show your image to the world.
