Veronica steps towards Jesus with a wet cloth.
She wanted to comfort Jesus in any way she could.
She gently wiped his face.
The soldiers roughly pushed her back.
They continued along their way.
Dear Jesus, There are times when I see someone that is being picked on. There are times when I see someone that is sad. Just as Veronica wiped Your face to comfort you, help me to always help others in whatever way I can.
Mary, help me to see Jesus in all things.
Almighty Father, Help me to see the needs of others. Remind me to be helpful, even if I am not asked. This I ask through Christ Our Lord. Amen
