Stations of the Cross 2021 by Fr Brian Kealey – 6

 The Sixth Station

Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

 

We adore thee Oh Christ and we praise thee

Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world

 

First Voice

Who did she see

Who did see recognise through the crowd

The victim

The criminal

The second-rate citizen

Was it a clear understanding

That here was a man

 

Second Voice

So many images

The news entertaining with disaster

Pain anesthetised by familiarity

So look through the presentation

See beyond your comfort

The patronising position of your security

Then have the courage like Veronica

To act

 

I love you Jesus

My love above all things

I regret with my whole heart of having offended thee

Never permit me to separate myself from thee again

Grant that I may love thee always and then do with me what thou will
