The Sixth Station

Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

“Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins.”
(Peter 4:8).

Charity can cover up a multitude of sins, St. Peter says. Veronica shows that. Of all the people in the crowd, she stands out because of her charity.

I love Christ, and his suffering pains me. Have I translated that love into action, or am I like those who merely stand on the sidelines and weep?

Pray this prayer from your heart: Lord Jesus, you rewarded Veronica’s charity by giving her your true image. Help us always remember that we only find happiness by serving the needs of others, not our own. Amen.

Pray one of each prayer:  Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
