Easter- The Characters in the Story Veronica
Responses are from a liturgy used on Iona- Wildgoose Publications
Where Christ Walks We will follow
Where Christ stumbles We will stop
Where Christ cries We will listen
Where Christ suffers We will hurt
When Christ dies We will bow our heads in Sorrow
When Christ rises again in glory We will share his endless joy.
I’m Veronica, and I was moved with compassion when I saw the man. Blood and sweat pouring down from him. I wasn’t going to do anything, what could I do to help? And the suddenly I found myself breaking through the line of guards and wiping his face. He looked at me, he loved me and that look was all the thanks I needed.
Heavenly Lord, Veronica saw the cry of the helpless and vulnerable. And drive by care, without regard for herself she helped someone. Help us always to put the needs of others before our own personal gain.
