Hi, guys —

  • Where in the Bible, does it have Veronica wiping the face of Jesus.

I have heard this all my life at the Stations of the Cross but cannot find it.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

There is no explicit reference to Veronica in the Bible, but rather tradition has posited her story.

You can find some good information here:

There are references to the Catholic Encyclopedia and other useful sources therein.
