Station 6- Veronica Wipes Jesus Face
Be kind and merciful. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier. Be the living _expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your greeting.
Community is like a large mosaic. One piece is bright red, another cold blue, a third dull green. As individual stones . . . each piece seems so insignificant . . . we can do little except compare them. When, however, all these little stories are brought together in one big mosaic portraying the face of Christ: who could question the importance of any one of them? If even the least spectacular one is missing, the face is incomplete. Each little stone is indispensible and makes a unique contribution to the glory of God. That’s community — a fellowship of people, who together make God visible in the world.
But I in my uprightness will see your face,
and when I awake, I shall be filled
with the vision of you.
