Join Our Lady of Fatima in Benton for teaching and exposition of sacred relics with Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross who will bring more than 150 relics, some of which are 2,000 years old. Among the treasures will be relics of St. Joseph, St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux (the “Little Flower”), St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Faustina Kowalska, a portion of the veil of the Blessed Virgin Mary and one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world. You 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. You are encouraged to bring your articles of devotion and pictures of ill friends and family members that you will be able to touch to the reliquaries for intercession.
