Today we celebrate in Arcadina the day of Saint Veronica, patron saint of photographers.

What is the story of Saint Veronica, patron saint of photographers?

It is said that Saint Veronica, patron saint of photographers, was the woman who succeeded in recording the face of Christ on canvas. In fact, she managed to take the first religious photograph in history.

In a bit of Christian history, Saint Veronica was the woman who, during the Stations of the Cross, was able to offer Jesus a cloth to wipe the sweat and blood from his face. It is said that the miracle came about when the face of Christ was engraved on the cloth like a photograph.

As a curiosity, the woman who performed this miracle and who was later named Saint Veronica, was actually called Berenice, which means “the one who carries the victory”. Actually the name Saint Veronica comes from an interpretation of the Latin vera icon, which means “True Image”, which is the name given to the canvas with which Christ wiped his face on his way to Calvary and where it was printed as a photograph in a miraculous way.

Although the precious story of how this saint took the first Christian photograph does not appear in the Gospels, Christianity has given an important role to this precious story of how the first photograph of Jesus came about by including the story of this saint in the sixth station of the Stations of the Cross.
