Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

V/. Adorámus te, Christe, et benedícimus tibi.
R/. Quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemísti mundum.
V/. We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you.
R/. For by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
6TH STATION " ... I was a stranger and you made me welcome; naked and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me. ... I tell you solemnly, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these bothers of mine, you did it to me."
[Matt 25:36, 40]]
Spend a few moments in silent reflection:
- Do I, like Veronica, put myself out to help those in need?
- Do I really see Jesus in my fellow men and women, and so love them and want to help them?
Amo te, o Jesu, mi Amor, magis quam meípsum,
et ex íntimo corde pænitet me quod tibi displícui.
Ne sinas me íterum a te separári.
Da mihi perpétuum amórem tui,
et dein fac de me quidquid tibi placúerit.
I love you Jesus, my Love, above all things;
I repent with my whole heart for having offended you.
Never permit me to separate myself from you again.
Grant that I may love you always,
then do with me what you will.
Quis non posset contristári
Matrem Christi contemplári
doléntem cum filio?
Can the human heart refrain
from partaking in her pain,
in that Mother's pain untold?
