Sixth Station - Veronica Helps Jesus
We adore you O Christ and we praise you.
Because by your Holy Cross you have redeemed the world!
Christ Speaks: Can you be brave enough like Veronica, my friend, to wipe my bloody face? Where is my face you ask? At home whenever eyes fill up with tears, at work when tensions rise, on playgrounds, in the city, in neighborhoods, in slums, the courts, the hospitalism the jails, wherever suffering exists - my face is there. And there I look for you to wipe away my blood and tears.
We Speak: Loving Jesus, what you ask of us is hard. It calls for courage and selflessness, but we are often weak. Please grace us with strength. Don't let us run away because of fear. Christ, live in us, act in us and love us. And not is us alone - in all people - so that we may reveal no more your bloody but your glorious face here on earth!
