Veronica wipes the face of Jesus

Veronica wipes the face of JesusLeader: We adore thee, O Christ, and we praise thee.
All:  Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.

Reader
“Who touched my clothes? …You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, who touched me?...But he continued to look all round to see who had done it…Then the woman came forward, frightened and trembling…"  Mark 5:30b-33

Jesus speaks:
May God bless you, Veronica.  She says it back to me, she says, May God bless you too, Jesus.   She will always be different because she came close to me.  And I will always be different because she touched me.  God bless her.  She blessed me.”

Pause:

Jesus falls the second time
