St. Veronica, a Woman Healed by Christ


Commemorated on July 12

According to Tradition, St. Veronica was the woman with the issue of blood, who received healing by touching the hem of Christ's robe (Mt. 9:20).

Troparion (Tone 8) –

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Mother,
For you took up the Cross and followed Christ.
By so doing, you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away,
But to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal.
Therefore your spirit, O Holy Mother Veronica, rejoices with the Angels!
