This Scapular of the Holy Face is a Roman Catholic devotional scapular based on the devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus.
This scapular is also known as The Veronica based on the association of the Holy Face of Jesus with Saint Veronica. The scapular bears an image of the Holy Face of Jesus and is worn by the members of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Face.
Pope Leo XIII approved of the scapular in 1885 and elevated the Priests of the Holy Face to an archconfraternity. The wearing of this scapular is simply a pious practice, without any special indulgences.

“Even to this day it is easier than it ought to be for me to get a rise out of an American by telling him something about himself which is equally true about every human being on the face of the globe. He at once resents this as a disparagement and an assertion on my part that people in other parts of the globe are not like that, and are loftily superior to such weaknesses.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“And, indeed, is there not something holy about a great kitchen?... The scoured gleam of row upon row of metal vessels dangling from hooks or reposing on their shelves till needed with the air of so many chalices waiting for the celebration of the sacrament of food. And the range like an altar, yes, before which my mother bowed in perpetual homage, a fringe of sweat upon her upper lip and the fire glowing in her cheeks.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
