Saint Veronica or Berenice, according to the "Acta Sanctorum" published by the Bollandists (under February 4),[3] was a pious woman of Jerusalem who, moved with pity as Jesus carried his cross to Golgotha, gave him her veil that he might wipe his forehead. Jesus accepted the offering and after using it handed it back to her, the image of his face miraculously impressed upon it.[4][5][6]
The name "Veronica" itself is a Latinisation of Berenice (Greek: Βερενίκη), a Macedonian name, meaning "bearer of victory". Folk etymology has attributed its origin to the words for true (Latin: vera) and image (Greek: εικόνα). The Encyclopædia Britannica says this about the legend:
Eusebius in his Historia Ecclesiastica (vii 18) tells how at Caesarea Philippi lived the woman whom Christ healed of an issue of blood (Matt ix 20). Legend was not long in pro…

He wont give up , this frail diminutive man with the inner strength of a million giants ..

When I first met him and began following his cavalcade that was many years back, I followed him , shooting pictures , and he said a few words about me at one of the Stations of the Cross I have never forgotten, he did not take my name , but he said there is one among us who though a non Christian touches Christ with his passion for photography and love for humanity..

And perhaps these words triggered a response to understand the Christian fervour on Good Friday, the spirituality of their Faith I knew I studied in a Convent school , but the physicality o…

The Cross

The Cross, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Christian cross, seen as a representation of the instrument of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, is the best-known religious symbol of Christianity.[1] It is related to the crucifix (a cross that includes a usually three-dimensional representation of Jesus' body) and to the more general family of cross symbols.

Pre-Christian crosses
The cross-shaped sign, represented in its simplest form by a crossing of two lines at right angles, greatly antedates, in both East and West, the introduction of Christianity. It goes back to a very remote period of human civilization. It is supposed to have been used not just for its ornamental value, but also with religious significance.[2]

Some have sought to attach to the widespread use of this sign, in particular in its swastika form, a real ethnographic importance. It may have represented the apparatus used in ki…
