img_3339This Icon of the Holy Face was painted by Sr Blandina Paschalis, O.C.S.O. and is venerated in her private hermitage’s chapel in Manopello, Italy.

Come and hear about the Holy Face of Manopello, Italy where in a chapel of St Michael Archangel, lies the Sanctuary of the Holy Face. This chapel was raised to the status of a Papal Basilica by Pope Benedict in 2006 just two weeks after his pilgrimage to the Sanctuary. In the Basilica is the original Veronica Veil that the Church has venerated for centuries.


While almost all have heard of the Shroud of Turin, Italy, little is known of this most remarkable relic, which bears the Holy Face of Jesus Christ, and was once venerated as the Veronica (The True (vera) Icon (nica), or the Veil of Veronica, which traditionally referred to the sixth station of the cross where a woman named Veronica wiped the face of Jesus.
