«The first book will be Clio, while the second Véronique.

It is wonderful, my dear friend: Clio (that is to say history) spends her time in search of imprints, vain imprints, and an insignificant Jew, a little girl, little Veronica takes out her handkerchief and on Jesus’ face she takes an eternal imprint. This is what routs everything.

She turned up at the right moment. Clio is always late».

Péguy to his friend Joseph Lotte, September 28th, 1912.

«I have given my heart as the sensible object of my great love to men and I give My Face as the sensible object of my sorrow for all the sins of men. I wish it was venerated by a special feast on Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.»

Blessed Pierina De Micheli
