6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus


6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus


We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.



Meditation
Consider the compassion of the holy woman, Veronica. Seeing Jesus in such distress, His face bathed in sweat and blood, she presented Him with her veil. Jesus wiped His face, and left upon the cloth the image of His sacred countenance. My beloved Jesus, Your face was beautiful before You began this journey, but now, it no longer appears beautiful and is disfigured with wounds and blood. Alas, my soul also was once beautiful also, when it received Your grace in Baptism, but I have since disfigured it with my sins. You alone, my Redeemer, can restore it to its former beauty. Do this by the merits of Your passion and then do with me as You will.



Prayer
I love You, Jesus, my love; I repent of ever having offended You. Never let me separate myself from You again. Grant that I may love You always; and then do with me as You will.



Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be



Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled
She beheld her tender Child
All with bloody scourges rent.
