Teaching and exposition slated in Prague.
The National Shrine of the Infant Jesus of Prague will present a teaching and exposition of Sacred Relics on Wednesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend the event.
Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will be here with his ministry to teach about these holy objects. He will bring over 150 relics, some as old as 2,000 years. Among the treasures will be relics 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. In addition, there will be a portion of the veil of Our Lady, as well as one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world.
Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic. In the Church's history, many miracles and healings have been worked in the presence of relics and many have been healed through this ministry.
Those attending are encouraged to bring articles of devotion, such as rosaries, holy cards, etc., and pictures of ill friends and family members which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession.
"There are healings at every exposition," Father Carlos said. "Hundreds have been reported to me. Spectacular ones. I have seen cancer, heart disease, tumors, osteoporosis, physical deformities, etc. disappear immediately and completely. Though a great number of miracles have been physical, the most spectacular are the healing of faith where a new and deeper relationship with God and His Saints are formed in the faithful."
