Veronica wiping the face of Jesus at the sixth station of the cross, St. Vitus Church, Cleveland, Ohio. Tradition suggests that Veronica was moved with sympathy when she witnessed Jesus carrying his cross to Golgotha, offering him her veil to wipe his forehead. On accepting her offer, Jesus held it to his face, then handed it back, his image impressed upon it. The piece of cloth became known as the Veil of Veronica.
