Made of white cloth, with the picture of the Face of Our Lord made famous through the tradition of Veronica's Veil. It is the badge of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Face, but the members may use a medal or cross bearing the same emblem. Wearing of this picture is simply one of the pious practices of the archconfraternity, without any special indulgences.
