An interesting article about an antique painting of Veronica's Veil discovered in a man's closet in Tennessee ...



The actual name of Veronica is not in the Bible, however, Tradition tells that she was one of the women weeping for Christ as he trudged toward Calvary.  Some claim that Veronica is the same woman who suffered from 12 years of hemorrhages.

Mark 5:25-34
Matthew 9:20-22
Luke 8:43-48
Luke 23:27

Though not listed in the Roman Martyrology, Veronica's Feast Date is traditionally honored as July 12.
