Veronica wipes the face of Jesus
‘As the crowds were appalled on seeing him, so disfigured did he look… we despised and rejected him – a man of sorrows, and acquainted with bitterest grief.’
Unconcerned with appearances, one woman’s courage and compassion conquers the cruelty of others.
Trapped by human respect, Lord, I fail to reach out to others. Let your image be mine as I respond to those who cry out for my care.
