From 776 BC until the present, the Olympic Games have been deemed the most prestigious sporting event in the whole world. Initially, the Games were not just a competition, but also an important religious ritual, dedicated to Zeus, the supreme Greek god.
Saint Veronica was a godly woman from Jerusalem who followed Jesus on his way to Golgotha. She was the one who gave him the veil to wipe his forehead. Jesus took the veil and after using it gave it back to her. The image of his face miraculously appeared on the veil after that.
This is the history of St. Veronica, who is considered to be the patroness of photographers. Thanks to her nowadays July, 12 is the Photographer’s Day. There also is the World Photography Day, celebrated on August, 19.
