Veronica comes from the Latin, “Vera Icon”, meaning true image. I have a devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus…thanks to St Therese of the infant Jesus and the Holy Face. Amazing the connection between St Veronica and St Therese…both holding images of the veil…Veronica the real image and Therese the image touched to the real image.

Biography of St. Veronique:
While Jesus was on the way to Calvary he fell under the weight of the Cross and St. Veronique having pity with him wiped his face with a veil. A miracle occured and the cloth was imprinted with the image of Christ's face. According to the myth, Veronique brought the veil away from the Holy Land, and used it to cure Emperor Tiberius's illness. Though the figure of St. Veronique still hasn't got a clear identification.
