6TH STATION / SOUTH SUDAN

VERONICA WIPES THE FACE OF JESUS

VI STATION / SOUTH SUDAN

We contemplate Jesus as a holy woman named Veronica, seeing him bathed in sweat and blood, wipes his face and the impression of his face is left on the cloth.

Lord Jesus, we see the impression of your suffering face on the faces of our suffering brothers and sisters in South Sudan as we follow you along the Way of the Cross. Those innocently killed in the war conflict, those wounded in body and soul, those hungry and displaced, those full of fear and desperation – all reflect your suffering face.

PRAYER:

May our eyes not be blind, O Lord! Let us see your Face.
Let us see Your face in all people who revive your passion in their own suffering. Fill us with compassion so we can comfort them with real, concrete, specific deeds. Fill us with faith to trust that evil and suffering are not the final words; rather Your resurrected semblance will come to meet us.

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

Glory be…
