Miracle Prayer to St. Veronica – Holy Face Prayer

Miracle Prayer to St. Veronica

O my Jesus, Saint Veronica served You
on the way to Calvary by wiping Your beloved
face with a towel on which Your
sacred image then appeared.
She protected this treasure, and
whenever people touched it,
they were miraculously healed.
I ask her to pray for the growth
of my ability to see your sacred image in
others, to recognize their hurts,
to stop and join them on their difficult
journeys and to feel the same compassion
for them as she did for You.
Show me how to wipe their faces,
serve their needs, and heal their wounds,
reminding me that as I do this for them,
I also do this for You.

Saint Veronica, pray for me to the Lord our God.


Veronica’s Veil: Holy Face Prayer

Veronica’s Veil: Holy Face Prayer

Eternal Father,
We offer You the Holy Face of Jesus,
covered with blood, sweat, dust and spittle,
in reparation for the crimes of communists,
blasphemers, and for the profaners of
the Holy Name and of the Holy Day of Sunday.

The Golden Arrow Prayer

“The following prayer is like a Golden Arrow, Our Lord told me, which has the power of wounding Him delightfully, as it heals also those other wounds made by the poisoned arrow of sinners who blaspheme His Name” – Sr. Mary of St. Peter.

May the most Holy,
most sacred, most adorable,
most incomprehensible and unutterable
Name of God be always praised,
blessed, loved, adored and glorified
in Heaven, on earth and under the earth
by all the creatures of God,
and by the Sacred Heart of our Lord,

Jesus Christ, in the most Holy Sacrament
of the altar. Amen.

About Saint Veronica

St. Veronica is believed to be the pious matron of Jerusalem who, moved with pity as Jesus carried the Cross to Calvary, wiped His face with her handkerchief. The handkerchief or cloth was left with the clear and miraculous imprint of Jesus’ face. In western tradition, Veronica was called to Rome by the Emperor Tiberius who was cured of his illness when she touched him with the cloth. At Veronica’s death she left the cloth with Pope Clement.

The story of Veronica found in the apocryphal Acts of Pilate identifies her as the woman mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew whom Jesus healed of a blood issue. In France, she was known as the wife of Zaccheus, who helped to evangelize the south of France when her husband became a hermit.

The veil was seen in Rome in the 8th century and, by the request of Pope Boniface VIII, was later placed in St. Peter’s in 1297. In popular speech of the time, the veil was referred to as “the Veronica,” a name made up of the Latin word “vera” and the Greek word “icon,” together meaning “true image.”

It was mentioned in several medieval texts by the Bollandists, and Matthew of Westminister speaks of an image of Jesus called Veronica. Thus, it is said that the name which referred to the cloth was mistaken for the name of a person. Although St. Veronica’s name is not mentioned in Scripture and she is not included in Roman Martyrology, the memory of her single act of charity is commemorated in the 6th Station of the Cross. She is also given a feast day. Veronica’s veil, bearing the face of our Lord Jesus Christ as well as the Crown of Thorns, is one of the most cherished relics of all time and of the Church.
