VERONICA WIPES THE FACE OF JESUS

 

 

 

An act of compasssion.

A woman called Veronica places a cool cloth on His hot and tired face.

He feels the coolness of the cloth,

and the love with which it was offered.

And through His pain

He smiles- a smile never to be lost,

never to be extinguished.

She reaches out to touch His face,

and He leans His head into her hands,

within her reach.

 

Oh, blessed day!

The Master touched her life, her heart,

her outstretched hands.

What faith! What lovely face!

What timeless meeting...O blessed Christ.

 

Christ of the human road, let us,

like Veronica, reach out to touch You,

and, sweet Christ,

show us Your lovely face.

Show us Your lovely face.

 

Legend or living person, Veronica, by example,

teaches us to be Your witness,

and others may gaze into Your loving eyes

and know Your smile.

Show us Your lovely face.

Show us Your lovely face.

 

As we see Your face by faith,

we learn to become like You, Lord Christ.

That the world may see Your glory:

show us Your lovely face.

Show us Your lovely face.

 

amen
