Saint Veronica

St. Veronica, whose name is a compound of the two words “Vera” and “Icon” which means true image, has origins none too distinct. On the first Good Friday, St. Veronica was the woman who stepped out of the crowd and wiped the perspiring face of Christ as He struggled to carry the cross on the road to Calvary. The cloth she used miraculously retained an imprint of the countenance of the suffering Messiah, an incident which gave rise to the legends which surround what has been called Veronica’s veil and which has been the subject of many moving tales.
