When Saint Paul speaks to us of “the word of the Cross” (1 Cor 1:18),
he is referring not only to an event, and not only to a message.
The Verbum crucis is the mystery of Christ Himself
who is the Word Crucified.

One who contemplates the Holy Face of Jesus gazes upon the Word Crucified.
The image of the Holy Face of Manoppello
draws us into the heart of the Paschal Mystery;
it is an icon of the Word crucified, buried,
and waking to the glory of the Father in the resurrection.
