6th Station of the Cross: Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

6th Station

We adore You O Christ and we praise You, because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.

Veronica, a bystander along the road to Calvary, sees Jesus’ suffering. She does not care what people might think or say; she simply follows her impulse and steps forward to help You, Lord.

Today a majority of doctors and nurses still want to help and save the unborn life they see threatened by death.  They join the fight against abortion and refuse to take part in murder.

Reflection: We should permit no discrimination against such doctors and nurses.  Nor should we permit the mass media to revile them for helping women to carry their children until birth.

Prayer: Lord Jesus crucified, help us all walk in your steps.
