St. Veronica

Statue of St. Veronica in the southwest pier. According to Catholic tradition, Veronica offered Jesus her veil so he could wipe his face during his walk to Calvary. When he did so, an image of his face was miraculously transferred to the cloth. The base of the statue contains the relic of Veronica's veil.
