April 5, 2012 - Karin Elton
How come I’ve never heard of Veronica? This morning (April 5) I took photos for Friday’s paper of the passion play at Holy Redeemer School.

In one part of the play the narrator said that a woman named Veronica (or in the Greek, Bernice) wiped Jesus’ brow with a cloth when he was carrying the cross.

I had never heard of Veronica. A Google search says that after she wiped his brow, his face appeared on the cloth. She was later named as a saint.

This is big. I asked a Catholic guy in the newsroom if he had heard of her and he hadn’t. I later asked a Catholic reporter if she had heard of Veronica and she did know her story.

Still, I think Veronica needed a better PR person.
