Cross will be at St. Thomas

Aquinas Church in Thomas

7 p.m. He will have with him

over 150 relics, some as old as

2,000 years.

Among the relics will be

those of St. Maria Goretti,

St. Therese of Lisieux (the

“Little Flower”), St. Francis

of Assisi, St. Anthony of

Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas,

and St. Faustina Kowalska.

The relics will include a por-

tion of the Veil of Our Lady,

as well as one of the largest

remaining pieces of the True

Cross in the world, according

to Father Martins.

Those in attendance will

be able to examine and ven-

erate each relic. Accord-

ing to Father Martins, in

the church’s history many

miracles and healings have

reportedly been worked in the

presence of relics, and many

have been healed through this

ministry. Those planning to

attend are invited to bring

their articles of devotion

(such as rosaries, holy cards,

etc.) and photographs of ill

friends/family members.
