Athanasius contra mundum said...

No, but she is one of her contemporaries.

My first thought was Mary too. Since it isn't her, I am going to go with Elizabeth or Veronica.

St Veronica who wiped the face of Christ on his way to Calvary. Sixth station of the cross.
BOOYAH!!! I know I have this!
Is the imagine from an antique holy card? It's quiet beautiful.

Athanasius contra mundum said...

Yes, its St Veronica (Greek for True Image).
I really don't remember where I found the picture.

Since 2 of you guys already got this the honest way, I will comment.

Contra - it's not much of a challenge when the URL of the picture is http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_CMJ6JJPQ7SM/SZ7SWtDoVsI/AAAAAAAAAJ8/Y5xwLIfqHHo/S760/Veronica1209.jpg !!!

That shows in my browser (Chrome) by just hovering the mouse over the picture. Be aware that a more determined cheater could use TinEye to find it even if the URL were different.

Well...'vero' is 'true' in Latin, but not Greek. In Greek 'truth' is 'alitheia', like Alicia, Alice. Alithos anesti = truly risen.

Veronika I believe is 'bearer of victory' phero + niki.
