1957

Veronica’s Veil

They tend His fierce divinity, shy saviours,

From the calvaries of the dispossessed,

Ragged mothers who give milk to their neighbours

While the husband fails, and the child undressed

Scrabbles at the empty plate, some holy women

Will take their last white linen from drawer

And saying:  “God is ours as He is human.”

Wipe the blood from the unbearable scar.

Denis Devlin, 1957 in The Passion of Christ
