Show Us Your Face
www.holyfaceofmanoppello.blogspot.com/ is a site devoted to the Holy Face of Jesus depicted on a napkin sometimes identified (though, according to this website and the Zenit article it cites, incorrectly) with the veil of Veronica. Our digital era will profit from a renewal of devotion to Our Lord's face. It was dear to "the Little Flower," whose full religious name was Sr. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face. We are bombarded by images, many of which leave an undesirable impression on our minds. What a necessary corrective, to contemplate the face/person of Jesus as a way to defog our psyches, so stained by images malicious, deceptive, and abhorrent, in favor of Someone good, true, and beautiful!
