There was a dusky veil exposed to view,
The handkerchief of St. Veronica:
Dusky it seem’d, but when the bolts of heaven
Threaten the guilty earth, some few have seen
Upon its folds “Il vero volto” stamp’d
In superhuman agony, as when
That blessed woman wiped her Master’s brow,
Streaming with drops of agony.
John Henry Newman, The pilgrim: or Truth and beauty in Catholic lands, Burns and Lambert, London 1853, p. 158.
