Station Six – Via Dolorosa - Veronica Wipes The Face Of Jesus

The sixth station is marked by a small Greek Catholic chapel named ''The Holy Face''.

According to the legend, Saint Veronica met Jesus in Jerusalem, on his way to Calvary. She reached out for Jesus and wiped the sweat from his forehead gently with her veil. 

Later on, she was astonished to see the face of Jesus imprinted on his veil. 

The name Veronica is either based on the Latin words ''Vera'' + ''Icon'' or the Greek words ''Vera Icon'' (true image).
