The greatest and most loved Veronica of the Church is a heroic Gentile woman who met Our Lord on His way to Calvary, and wiped His sacred and bleeding face with her veil. This is commemorated in the Sixth Station of the Cross. Jesus left the imprint of His sacred face on Veronica’s veil. This veil is now kept in one of the pillars of Saint Peter’s in Rome, facing the altar where the Pope says Mass. Saint Veronica left Jerusalem after Our Lord’s death and came to Rome. She gave her precious veil to the Holy Father. Saint Veronica was martyred for the Faith.
