The sixth station of the cross is where Veronica wipes the face of Jesus. During each of the stations, the students have a message that goes with the particular station. This one asks God to help "us act with kindness and compassion as we unite our love with yours, in caring for someone who is hurting."
ONTONAGON - Students at the Holy Family Church in Ontonagon perform the shadow stations of the cross each Lenten season.
Behind a scrim with illuminated light, the students enact the 14 stations of Christ's death on the cross.
It begins with his condemnation to death and concludes with his placement in the tomb. The presentation is traditionally performed the Friday before Holy Week.
Each station is accompanied with a dialogue read by two of the students which connects the station and suffering with the lives of young and old.
