6th Station - Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

It is not obvious that Veronica will have been of much practical use to Jesus, indeed it may well have been very painful when she removed the cloth from his face. Nevertheless she did it out of love, and Jesus rewarded her kindness with an image of his face. She probably didn't appreaciate that she was wiping the face of the Son of God!

We must look for opportunities to show love and kindness to others, for Jesus said 'I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.'

We must also learn to accept well-meaning acts of kindness from others - even when in practice they are not much help.
