The Holy Face of Jesus from the image of Veronica's veil (The veil is kept in St. Peters Basilica, Rome.)
A Brief Timeline of Events Relating to the Holy Face and Holy Face Devotion
~33 AD: Veronica wipes Our Lord's face with her veil and an image of His Holy Face miraculously appears on the veil. Veronica later passes the relic of the veil to Clement I (3rd successor of St. Peter). The relic of the veil was kept in catacombs for the next 3 centuries during persecutions of the Church. After that time, Holy Veil was placed in the church that was constructed over the tomb of St. Peter (later to become the Basilica of St. Peter). The Holy Veil has since been kept intact throughout the centuries. "1849: Shortly after the death of Sister Mary of St. Peter, Pope Pius IX ordered public prayers be offered in all churches in Rome to implore God's mercy on the Papal States due to revolution occurring at the time. As part of these public prayers, a three-day exposition of the relic of Veronica's veil was held for public veneration at St. Peter's Basilica. On the third day of the showing, a miracle occurred through which Our Lord's face on the veil became very distinct and glowed with a soft light. The Canons of the Basilica ordered the bells rung at sight of the miracle, which attracted crowds of people. The miracle lasted for three hours, and was attested to by an apostolic notary during the incident." Read more here, http://www.holyfacedevotion.com/timeline.htm
A super important devotion. So sorry to see only one reply here. I don’t have time to write at this moment, but there is so much to say about this. AND, I discovered a link between the Holy Face and Fatima.
When you have time I would love to hear about the link stisidore.
