Wipes the Face of Jesus
journey is at times brutal. He has entered into the terrible experiences
of rejection and injustice. He has been whipped and beaten. His face
shows the signs of his solidarity with all who have ever suffered injustice
and vile, abusive treatment. He encounters a compassionate, loving
disciple who wipes the vulgar spit and mocking blood from his face.
On her veil, she discovers the image of his face - his gift to her.
And, for us to contemplate forever.
