The Sixth Station - where Veronica wiped the face of Jesus.
According to a tradition dating from the 14th century, Veronica wiped Christ's face with a silk veil on which His features remained imprinted. The holy relic of this meeting, Veronica's veil, has been kept since the eight century in Saint Peter's Basilica (Rome).

Station 6 is commemorated by the Church of the Holy Face, served by the ?Little Sisters,? a Greek Catholic rite.
