Via Dolorosa 6

SIXTH STATION
Veronica wipes the sweat from Jesus’ face


V. We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee:
R. Because by thy holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world.


[Lamentations 3.48-50]
48 My eyes overflow with rivers of water For the destruction of the daughter of my people.
49 My eyes flow and do not cease, Without interruption,
50 Till the LORD from heaven Looks down and sees.
REFLECTION
The remembrance of the most holy Passion of Jesus Christ is the door through which the soul enters into intimate union with God, interior recollection and most sublime contemplation. It must be impressed deeply on our souls as we allow ourselves to be immersed in His bitter
sufferings, for through these the love of God is enkindled in us and we will then be plunged in the abyss of the divinity. (St. Paul of the Cross)


All: Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.


LET US PRAY
O God, whose days are without end, and whose mercies cannot be numbered; Make us, we beseech thee, deeply sensible of the shortness and uncertainty of human life; and let thy Holy Spirit lead us in holiness and righteousness all our days: that, when we shall have served thee in
our generation, we may be gathered unto our fathers, having the testimony of a good conscience; in the communion of the Church catholic; in the confidence of a certain faith; in the comfort of a
reasonable, religious and holy hope; in favor with thee our God, and in perfect charity with the world; through Christ our Lord. Amen.


V. O Savior of the world, who by thy Cross and Precious Blood hast redeemed us:
R. Save us and help us, we humbly beseech thee, O Lord.

    1. When I first thought of putting Stations on the blog, I almost immediately discounted it. But I thought more about it and came to the conclusion, maybe it’s even better this way – a person can concentrate on one Station at a time and really contemplate each one. Like the prayer in this one.
