The Sixth Station

The Way of the Cross  - The Sixth Station

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.

Lord Jesus, why do we always hang back when there is some good we could do, when we should help a friend, when we should break through the opinion of the crowd and do what is right?   Help us to have the courage of Veronica.   Help us to realize the amazing chance we have dozens of times each day to do as much as Veronica did for you - by doing good to all those with whom we live.

Lord Jesus, crucified.   Have mercy on us.
