The Sixth Station - Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus

We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you.
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

He had no form or comeliness that we should look at him, and no beauty to attract us. He was despised and rejected by men as one for whom men hide their faces.

Can the human heart refrain
From partaking in her pain,
In that Mother's pain untold?
