St. Veronica


The Woman with a Hemorrhage?
Did you know that some traditions assert that St. Veronica, who cleaned the face of Jesus as He carried the Cross, was also the woman with the 12-year hemorrhage?  It is a Gospel story sandwiched within the story of the Official's Daughter:
Matthew 9:20-22
Mark 5:25-34
Luke 8:43-48


A short YouTube video showing the location where St. Veronica cleaned the face of Jesus.  Also included is a glimpse of a studio next door where nuns now draw icons. (Veronica means "true icon" ... or ... true representation.)
