The Sixth Station:
Veronica offers her veil to Jesus

V. We adore You, O Christ, and we praise You.
R. Because, by Your holy cross, You have redeemed the world.

Consider the compassion of the holy woman, Veronica.  Seeing Jesus in such distress, His face bathed in sweat and blood, she presented Him with her veil.  Jesus wiped His face, and left upon the cloth the image of His sacred countenance. 

My beloved Jesus, Your face was beautiful before You began this journey; but, now, it no longer appears beautiful and is disfigured with wounds and blood.  Alas, my soul also was once beautiful when it received Your grace in Baptism;  but I have since then disfigured it with my sins.  You also, my Redeemer, can restore it to its former beauty.  Do this by the merits of Your passion;  and then do with me as You will.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be.

Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled
She beheld he tender Child,
All with bloody scourges rent.
