    Saints are a very important part of a catholic life. They help our prayers reach our God. We pray to them and most are our friends. We love and respect them as well, to have information like this about and from them is very helpful. This page has helped me understand a little bit more about my saint. Its helped me to make my choice for my confirmation. Thank you for having this information available to us.

    Oh patron St. Veronica you have helped me so much as I have suffered through so much of my life. Pray for me now that I have the mental and physical ability to return to college and get into the work force having been disabled for 14 years. I love you patron Saint continue your guiding hand in all that I do. Amen

    O My Jesus, Saint Veronica served You on the way to Calvary by wiping Your beloved face with a towel on which Your sacred image then appeared. She protected this treasure, and whenever people touched it, they were miraculously healed. I ask her to pray for the growth of my ability to see Your sacred image in others, to recognize their hurts, to stop and join them on their difficult journeys, and to feel the same compassion for them as she did for You. Show me how to wipe their faces, serve their needs, and heal their wounds, reminding me that as I do this for them, I also do this for You.
    Saint Veronica, pray for me.
    Amen.+

    Saint Veronica pray, pray for us all, All; pray there be clean soft linens to absorb what blood, sweat and tears discomfort us through all our years; pray when we enter a Holy Environment there be those such as thee to comfort and free; pray that to any suffering may helpful aid come offering; pray healing and Heaven be unto us soon; pray we walk quickly and well our steps towards that Throne from which flows all healing the world's ever known, Amen
