Praying the Way of the Cross

Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

Station VI
Veronica wipes the faces of Jesus

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


Since for your sake I bear insult, and shame covers my face. I have become an outcast to my brothers, a stranger to my mother's sons.


The remembrance of the most holy Passion of Jesus Christ is the door through which the soul enters into intimate union with God, interior recollection and most sublime contemplation. It must be impressed deeply on our souls as we allow ourselves to be immersed in His bitter sufferings, for through these the love of God is enkindled in us and we will then be plunged in the abyss of the divinity.

--Saint Paul of the Cross


Omnipotent and eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and support of those in trouble, listen to the pleading of suffering humanity so that all men may rejoice in having received the help of Your mercy in all their needs. Through Christ our Lord, AMEN.
