Stations of the Cross: Station 6 - Veronica Wipes Jesus' Face

“whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me…anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.”
Mark 9:37 & 41  

 Jesus, You struggled in agony.
 But one woman,
breaking away from fear
and the angry crowds,
kindly washed
 Your bleeding face with her
 thin veil.
Something so simple.
A towel. A cup of cold water.
 A loving word. A touch.
help me value such small
 things, so great when given
in Your name.
